[Verse 1]
Did you fall pray to
Attribute value
A common sense betray
Believe enriched by
Object material
More one accumulate
More will satiate?

[Verse 2]
Did you invest in
Accept unquestioned
Run ev’ry thing as business?
Targets and quotas
Improve society?
Measure the measurable
Indicator key?

You better make sure your truth is true
You better make sure your truth is true

[Verse 3]
Did you jump into
Reason surrender
Promote to absolute
One true religion?
Justify merciful
Impose blinker vision
In name of saving souls?

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 4]
Did they embrace it
Did they buy into lie
Communist evil
Then reason rational
Invasion Vietnam
In name of liberate?

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental + Spoken word]
On the back of believing something true may well flow all manner of reasonable, logical, rational and considered actions. But if that truth later turns out to be false, the whole endeavour is reduced to nonsense. Therefore we better make sure our truth is true.

[Verse 5]
Did I identify
I as my body
Mine as my kith and kin?
Others as Other
No sister brother
Across species divide
Forget to open eyes?

[Repeat Chorus]
