Now when the rumor comes to your town
It grows and grows, where it started no one knows
Some of your neighbors will invite it right in
Or maybe it's a lie, even if it's a sin they'll repeat the rumor again

Close your eyes, hang down your head
Until the fog rolls away, let it roll away
Open up your arms and feel the good
'Cause it's comin', a brand new day

Big men, little men turned into dust
Or maybe it was all in fun, they didn't mean to ruin no one
Could there be someone, here among this crowd
Who's been abused, had his name so misused and his privacy refused?

Close your eyes, hang your head
Until the fog rolls away, let it roll away
Open up your arms and feel the good
'Cause it's comin', a brand new day

Now all you vigilantes wanna make a move
Or maybe they won't, you know I sure hope they don't
For whether this rumor proves true or false
You can forgive or you can regret but he will never ever forget

Close your eyes, hang down your head
Until the fog rolls away, let it roll away
Open up your arms and feel the good
'Cause it's comin', a brand new day
