"Policy Of Truth" as written by and Martin Gore....
You had something to hide
Should have hidden it, shouldn't you
Now you're not satisfied
With what you're being put through

It's just time to pay the price
For not listening to advice
And deciding in your youth
On the policy of truth

Things could be so different now
It used to be so civilised
You will always wonder how
It could have been if you'd only lied

It's too late to change events
It's time to face the consequence
For delivering the proof
In the policy of truth

Never again
Is what you swore
The time before
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before

Now you're standing there tongue tied
You'd better learn your lesson well
Hide what you have to hide
And tell what you have to tell
You'll see your problems multiplied
If you continually decide
To faithfully pursue
The policy of truth

Never again
Is what you swore
The time before

    General CommentThis song is about how it's not always the best policy to tell the truth. Some things are better left unsaid or even deceived. But we are told that "honesty is the best policy" "the truth shall set you free. This is the "Policy of Truth" But this in reality is not always the case. And sometimes the truth can cause more damage than bring about a good consequence. Similarly to the lyrics of -Careless Whispers. "To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind. There's no comfort in the truth, pain is all you'll find".
