"TELL THE TRUTH"

We want the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth.
We want the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth.

Verse 1:
The tragedy that we see today
In the struggle for what's right,
Is not that children are scared of the darkness,
But that grown men are scared of the li-ght.
What's wrong will be wrong,
Even though the majority's for it.
What's right will keep on being right,
Though some people choose to ignore it.

Refrain 1:
What is freedom anyway,
But to know the truth.
We can't just sit here and let the lies
Continue as they do.

Chorus 1:
Let me tell you 'bout Jesus,
He told the truth, do or die.
It was His Love and the life He lived
That tore the cloak off the lie.
He told the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth.
He told the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth.

[Chanted:]
We want the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth, yeah!

Verse 2:
For governments and the media,
Lies are a favorite tool,
But when the truth is stretched too far,
It snaps right back at you. [oooo]
They're talking smoother than butter,
But still have war in their hearts;
And making speeches softer than oil,
While they tear somebody apart.

Refrain 2:
You don't have to know all there is to know
'bout evil to fight it.
Just lift up the truth you know,
And the lie can't stand up beside it.

Chorus 2:
Now let me tell you about Jesus,
He told the truth, do or die.
It was His Love and the life He lived
That tore the cloak off the lie.
He told the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth.
He told the truth, the whole truth,
And nothing but the truth
[You tell 'em sister!]

[Chanted]
We want the truth, [Face the facts!]
The whole truth, [Face the fears!]
And nothing but the truth. [Declare war on hypocrisy!]
We want the truth, [War on the lies!]
the whole truth, [Deceptions and delusions!]
And nothing but the truth. [Uproot that which is false!]
Now tell the truth, the whole truth [the whole
And nothing but the truth! truth]
[So help me God!]
Now tell the truth, the whole truth
[Ooooh and nothing but the truth! yeah]
Now tell the truth, [Tell it! Tell it! Tell it like it is!]
The whole truth,
And nothing but the truth!
[Just like Jesus!]
Now tell the truth, the whole truth
[Got to tell the Truth!]
And nothing but the truth!
Now tell the truth, the whole truth
[Stand up for Jesus!]
And nothing but the truth!
[So help me, so help me, God!]
Now tell the truth, the whole truth
And nothing but the truth!
[Fade]
