Naked Truth

When you strip away all the falsity
All the things they say you have to be
When you take it down to the rocky ground
You’ll be left with just the naked truth you’ve found

When you take away all the fakery
All the lies they say you must believe
Then the curtain’s pulled and the wizard’s shown
To be just a man standing in the dark alone

Then your eyes are open to see the naked truth
And your ears can hear the universe singing to you
When the truth of who you are is all you’ve got
You don’t have to try anymore to be something that you’re not

When the veil of smoke is cleared away
And the sun shines clear like a summer day
When the dead of night gives the breaking dawn
You can leave the past and get to moving on

(alt)
When the veil of acrid smoke is cleared away
And the sun shines crystal clear like a summer day
When the dead of night gives way to the breaking dawn
You can leave the past behind and get to moving on
