Truth Be Told Lyrics

9. Truth Be Told (5:40)
Track rating :  80 / 100      Votes :  1     
This is the first tale of death in the world
When Cain struck down Abel, a family broken
Since then mankind's dominated his own kind
To insult and injure, there's no such thing as peace
Till death do us part... till the last!

Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - Hell's open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground... all around!

The battle ain't over without spoils of war
Just 'cause it is written does not make it so
When you dance with the devil wait till the song's over
I ask myself: "How bad do I want you to live?"
My anger is near... till the last!

Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - Hell's open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground
Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - Hell's open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground... all around!

Tribulation strikes and we're hit hard
Still you just go on your way
Head in the sand, ignoring the rain
Just like the flood in Noah's day... in his day!

Can't punish those ruining the earth
It's suicide to some degree
Because we are all guilty, guilty as sin
There will be no peace, never for you and me!

Before Al Qaeda and Bin Laden
Long before Hitler and Hussein
Ever since the first murder was committed
The verdict's always been the same... been the same, wrong!

The cursed future just repeats the past
There's hell to pay and stones to cast
So, there will be no peace, never be peace
Till the last truth be told by you and me!
