Rundgren, Todd - Truth Lyrics




I'm gonna find it, I'm gonna find the truth
Because it ain't here, it's nowhere near
I gotta find it, I gotta find the truth
If I lose my mind, well I don't care

The truth is in plain contradiction (yeah)
The truth is not in this situation (yeah)
The truth is it's my only salvation (yeah)
The truth is
The truth is
The truth is
The truth is not here

I tried to find it looking in the works of man
And if it's in there, well it's sure not clear
I thought I saw it somewhere in a starry sky
And if it's up there, well I'm stuck down here

The truth is like chasing a phantom (yeah)
The truth is so seemingly random (yeah)
The truth is not easily handled (yeah)
The truth is
The truth is
The truth is
The truth is not here

The truth is stranger than fiction
The truth is stranger than fiction
The truth is stranger than fiction
The truth is stranger than fiction

I gotta find the truth
If I have to stand all day in the bright sunshine
I gotta find it, I'm gonna find the truth
If I have to dance all night, leave my body behind

Because the truth is never gonna look for me
I will never get to see what I have not earned
And the truth is, if that day should never come
That doesn't mean I was wrong to try to capture that bird

Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me
Sweet bird of truth, come to me

Rundgren, Todd Truth Comments

    Why doesn't Daft Punk do something with this GENIUS?

  2. Mary Ann Tomaszewski

    nice long song!

  3. Kevin McGiffin

    Hello Elliot....you have my vote on this song. The live video from the Egg is awesome. This song rocks in that show. Prairie prince is one goofy character on the drum kit. All great musicians and great show. Buy the concert video if you can afford it. Very much worth it.

    Was never really a Utopia Fan but "LIARS" is their best work, this song is super but "SWEET" is my Favorite.

    Mark Bierman

    Except Liars is not Utopia.

    Guys, I'm catching up. At 73 now I'm finding what I missed. My introduction to Todd was Hollywood Bowl, he opened for Jesus Christ Super Star '72ish. I don't know it all and I do get confused at times.....

  5. Elliot Porter

    Thought I'd add a comment, since apparently no one else is. This is quite possibly my most favorite song from the Liars album. Despite being much younger than the majority of the TR fanbase, I do really enjoy his music!

    Mary Ann Tomaszewski

    Enjoying is what it is all about!
