Lyrics

Oh..

Go to the mountain if you must
Go to the burning bush
Happy would ease your troubled mind
I'll be prepared to stay behind

I know you better than you think I do
Don't worry, dear, this is why I fell in love with you
The man in the looking glass
Is looking back at you at last

You can't hide from the truth, because the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, because the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, because the truth is all there is
You can't hide...

If happy times are too few and far between
It's a pity, dear, we can't erase the things we've seen
So disappear, vanish if you wish
Just go before you're swallowed up by bitterness

And the truth is, you can't hide from the truth
And the truth hurts, because the truth is all there is
I realized some time ago, that I would have to let you go

May not be true to say
That you'll return one day
But in your present state
You may as well not be here at all
You wear a thin disguise
It's from yourself you hide
Just take a look at us
We are heading for a fall

Now presiding in this court of hip-hop justice
my rap forte is judge, jury, bailiff, and prosecuting DA
Cause ceteris paribus, my modus operandi
it's carpe diem whether de facto or de jure
Comprende? The people versus you and your sensei
Teaching that style of wordplay, weaker than Wednesday
Regardless of what your friends say, you're all dissable
Stricken from the record, and deemed inadmissible
While this long arm of the law grabs the mic to
Shoot dope lines first and ask questions later
The def sentences of this Live litigator
To close a case tighter than the jaws of a gator
Stenographers are steady logging the jargon
That your counselors are barking in hopes of a plea bargain
But when you read back verbatim what they're saying to persuade them
You'll realize exactly how I played them
I come with the truth, whole truth, and nothing but
'Cause the truth hurts just as much as fuckin' with Live will
I brew skill with refills from now until
Plagiarizing emcees get their flows distilled

And baby, I won't die without you by my side
As long as you return into these arms that burn
And baby, I won't die, just take a look inside
Into these eyes that burn, come to these arms that yearn
I won't die if you leave me high
I won't die if you're not by my side

And the truth hurts, because the truth is all there is

You can't hide from the truth
'Cause the truth is all there is
