"HONESTY PAYS"

Chorus:
Don't try to run, don't try to hide!
Don't cover up your feelings inside!
Nothing is solved by running away
Let's face the facts, honesty pays!
Honesty pays!

Things we conceal are still the things we really feel
-An open life is truth without an alibi
Let's move into the sun,
Right the wrong things that we've done
Strip away the coverings, start again!

[Repeat Chorus]

If we are right, we needn't fear to face the light
-If we are wrong, we'll gain nothing by holding on
Let's move into the sun,
Right the wrong things we've done,
Strip away the coverings, start again!

[Repeat Chorus]

Instrumental: ---------

Don't try to run, don't try to hide!
Don't cover up your feelings inside!
Nothing is solved by running away
Let's face the facts, honesty pays!
Honesty pays! Honesty pays
