PROCOL HARUM


Nothing But The Truth Lyrics

It seems as clear as yesterday
We saw it in a dream
But dream became insanity
An awful gaping scream
So sad to see such emptiness
So sad to see such tears
And heaped up leaves of bitterness
Turned mouldy down the years

Nothing but the truth.
Common words in use
Hard to find excuse
Harder than the truth

Like icarus we flew too high
We flew too near the sun
They caught us in that awful glare
Our hapless throats were strung
But just before the final stroke
They took us victims of the rope
And cast us far beyond the deep
To lie in never ending sleep

It seems as clear as yesterday
They cast us in the deep
We lie in darkest night for good
Never ending sleep
A never ending bitter gloom
Whose darkness seldom clears
A God forsaken emptiness
Which fills our hearts with tears
