  • So now I am owed this,
    One self indulgent tirade
    A hollow attempt to
    To sell my point of view
    Yeah I know what's rotting beneath your best intentions
    At the heart of your convictions
    Sits a broken man that needs to understand

    I am owed this now
    I am owed this now
    I am owed this now

    This is all I ever asked from you
    The only thing you couldn't do
    Tell me the whole truth
    You don't know yourself
    How could I know you
    I will not be moved until you tell me the whole truth

    I know you mean well with your ancient code of ethics
    Lead by example
    Could you imagine Christ hitting a child?
    You live in a shelter built from your own truth
    There's so many things you
    You don't want me
    You don't want me to know

    I am owed this now
    I am owed this now
    I am owed this now

    This is all I ever asked of you
    The only thing you couldn't do
    Tell me the whole truth
    You don't know yourself
    How could I know you?
    I will not be moved until you tell me the whole truth.

    Oh next time you're standing on that stage
    (You're lying to yourself, You're lying to yourself)
    Selling your cold hollow faith
    (You're still a liar to me, you're still a liar to me)
    Next time you're standing on that stage
    (Repent, repent)
    Selling your cold hollow faith remember

    This is all I ever asked from you
    The only thing you couldn't do
    Tell me the whole truth
    You don't know yourself
    How could I know you
    I will not be moved until you tell me the whole truth

    The only thing I asked from you
    The only thing you couldn't do
    Tell me the whole truth

    I will not be be moved
    I will not be moved
    I am owed this now
    Tell me the whole truth. Writer/s: ADAM LAZZARA, EDWARD REYES, JOHN NOLAN, MARK O'CONNELL, SHAUN COOPER
