Truth Is A Whisper

Album: Gutterflower (2002)
  • Truth is a whisper and only a choice
    Nobody hears above this noise
    There's always a risk when you try to believe
    I know that there's so much more than me
    Yeah

    Yeah I got caught in the ruse of the world
    It's a just a promise no one ever keeps
    And now it's changing while you sleep
    And no one here can see

    You know all I am
    Feel this moment in you
    You know all I am
    Can you teach me to believe in something

    Sometimes you choke on the smell just to breathe
    I need to question what I need
    Rhythm of silence
    That beats through your mind
    Still you forget what you deny
    Yeah

    And I got caught in the ruse of the world
    It's a just a promise no one ever keeps
    And now it's changing in your sleep
    And no one here can see

    You know all I am
    Feel this moment in you
    You know all I am
    Can you teach me to believe in something

    Who's the one you answer to
    Do you listen when he speaks
    Or is everything for you
    And do you find it hard to sleep
    Or is it easy on your own
    Will you ever find some peace
    Before you're gone

    You know all I am
    Feel this moment in you
    You know all I am
    Can you teach me to believe in something
