Truth Is...







Truth Is...

truth is, you were an outcast, lonely and pushed back, feeling so small
truth is, you were invisible, unnoticed and miserable, a fly on a wall
truth is, you never had much, reclusive and out of touch, nobody got you
truth is, you weren't even needed, always mistreated, black and blue

truth is, you couldn't handle it, no they just wouldn't quit, or leave you alone
truth is, confusion was setting in, knew that you couldn't win, out on your own
truth is, you tried to ignore it, but you couldn't forget, you're not that tough
truth is, the sticks and the stones, cut right to the bone, you had enough

take it all away, the pain that haunts
all the things you hate, it's just too much
all the lies and the shame, and the hurt and the blame
can't hold on no more
take it all away

truth is, the pressure was building, and your head was filling, with all of their lies
truth is, your heart was aching, insanity glazing over your eyes
truth is, you needed to stop it, just couldn't stop it, out of control
truth is, your world's turning black now, no turning back now, or saving your soul

truth is, your mind was racing, manic and pacing, ready to end it all
truth is, went to the closet, that's when you saw it, your father's gun
truth is, felt you were breaking, hands started shaking, metal so cold
truth is, you pulled that trigger, you didn't figure, you'd feel the bullet

take it all away, the pain that haunts
all the things you hate, it's just too much
take it all away, its all I want
all the things they say, it hurts too much
all the lies and the shame, and the hurt and the blame
can't hold on no more
take it all away

truth is, you weren't really hated, it's your friends that saved you, tackled you to the floor
truth is, the bullet it missed you, death only kissed you, letting you go
truth is, it wasn't worth it, life isn't perfect, despite what you think
truth is, you were loved, and no matter what, nobody wants you gone
