Truth Be Told Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This is the first tale of death in the world
When Cain struck down Abel a family broken
Since then mankind's dominated his own kind
To insult and injured there's no such thing as peace
Till death do us part

Till the last
(Truth be told)
Sin lies at the doorway
(Truth be told)
Hell's open for business now
(Truth be told)
The soil cries out for revenge
(Truth be told)
And death is upon the ground, all around

The battle ain't over without spoils of war
Just 'cause it is written does not make it so
When you dance with the Devil wait till the song's over
I ask myself how bad do I want you to live
My anger is near

Till the last
(Truth be told)
Sin lies at the doorway
(Truth be told)
Hell's open for business now
(Truth be told)
The soil cries out for revenge
(Truth be told)
And death is upon the ground
(Truth be told)

Sin lies at the doorway
(Truth be told)
Hell's open for business now
(Truth be told)
The soil cries out for revenge
(Truth be told)
And death is upon the ground, all around

Tribulation strikes and we're hit hard
Still you just go on your way
Head in the sand, ignoring the rain
Just like the flood in Noah's day
(In his day)

Can't punish those for ruining the earth
It's suicide so don't worry
Because we are all guilty, guilty as sin
There'll be no peace, never for you and me

Before Al Qaeda and Bin Laden
Long before Hitler and Hussein
Ever since the first murder was committed
The verdict's always been the same
(Been the same, wrong)

Because the future just repeats the past
There's hell to pay, the stone's been cast
So there'll be no peace
(Never be peace)
Till the last truth be told for you and me

Songwriters
Mustaine, Dave
