The Truth

Album: The Illusion of Progress (2008)


  • This was originally written for Staind's Chapter V. album. Frontman Aaron Lewis explained to Artist Direct how it ended up on The Illusion of Progress: "We kept it off the record because we were assured that we'd be able to use it for a movie soundtrack or something good like that, since they weren't going to use it as a single. So it was worth more for us to hold onto it and hopefully have it put on a soundtrack, rather than being put on the record and never being considered as a single anyways. We thought it was a great song, so we kept it from that previous session. It is pretty cool that it fits here though."
  • This is a bonus track on the iTunes Deluxe Edition of the album.
