Mm

What if half the things ever said turned out 2 b a lie?
How will U know the truth?
If U were given all the answers when U stopped 2 wonder why
But how will U know the truth?

Everybody's got a right 2 love
Everybody's got a right 2 lie
But the choice U make, it ain't no piece of cake
It ain't no motherfuckin' piece of pie

What if time's only reason was 2 give us all somethin' 2 fear
And if so, y'all, the end of the journey's so clear

Questionnaire - "What did U stand 4?"
Questionnaire - "Who did U save?"
When it gets right down 2 it
Wait a minute, when it gets right down 2 the nitty of the gritty
When it gets right down 2 it
Did U take more than U gave?

Everybody's got a right 2 love
Everybody's got a right 2 lie
But the choice U make, it ain't no piece of cake
It ain't no motherfuckin', motherfuckin' piece of pie!

Mmm well, gotta tell the truth, y'all, gotta tell the truth
Gotta tell the truth, y'all, gotta tell the truth
Gotta tell the truth, y'all, gotta tell the truth

If there was just 1 day when everybody told the truth
We'd all trade bank accounts and move 2 Neptune
