Printer-friendy version of these lyrics


Hello! say what? oh yeah? too much.
What's new? what's up? I here you're messed up, in trouble, in pain
No need to explain - expectation let you down
See yourself inside - when it gets real do you hide?
Can you face them or do they chase you down
How it could be and how it is - what it should be and what it is
Just another version of the big fat truth
Mind the gap, see the distance - it's the blueprint of resistance
Try to get your point across and it gets knocked back
Confrontation - static
Intimidation - panic
Eye to eye and wall to wall
Can you see what's here? does it fill you with fear?
Can you keep your distance from what you hate?
Unbelievable, unreal, too shocked to feel
Look out! mind the gap!

The truth ain't nothin' but the truth

Oh no! you don't say! they don't see it your way?
In the dark everyone was just like you
Now you're mad, uptight because the world's not right
You don't think and it makes you sad
Attitude affected, your way - rejected
Stupidity to get you through
Check out the gap that's all around you
Try to get close, it astounds you
How these people can be so relentlessly cold

Too easy, so blind. too tough to be kind
Man, you're like some guy in a comic book
Get real, pull your head out
Get up, and get the lead out
Man, I know you can do better than that
Yeah you could stay away from arms length away from life
But it takes strength to get up close and go all the way live
Bridge the gap, take the first step
The more you go, the more you get
Down with the program and on with the show

The truth ain't nothin' but the truth
