Truth Is Dead

Lyrics: Michael Falzarano
Music: Michael Falzarano

A new New Riders song, introduced in 2012. Thanks to Michael Falzarano for the lyrics.

Truth is dead, itís been laid to rest
They buried it late last night right alongside common sense
You canít say anything anymore without consequence
So button it up and get your ass back on the fence

Donít dare take a stance on one side or the other
Or the hammer will come down on you like a mother fucker
Civility, reasonable thinking, free speech
Well, these days it just seems as though theyíre just out of reach

Theyíve been replaced with politically correct
And it donít seem to matter much who we elect
You can vote down the middle, vote for left side, vote for the right
Say something they donít agree with and you better run for your life

Because theyíll cut you down, run you out of town
So just keep your mouth shut, donít make a sound
Donít talk about how you feel, donít say whatís on your mind
Or theyíll hunt you down like a dog and bury you alive

Truth is dead itís been laid to rest
They buried it late last night right alongside common sense
No you canít say anything anymore without consequence
Truth is dead

Yeah truth is dead along with common sense
All weíre left with now is politically correct
Truth is dead along with common sense
Truth is dead

Hey darling, you wanna dance?
