going deeper in your mind going where you cannot hide no you won't be on your own I know everything you've done and you know exactly, what it means when I become the truth follow me I am the one follow me and come undone I am shiny, I am bright I will be your only light and you know exactly, what it means when I become the truth
I'm a pilot in free fall I'm the color of the sun I'm the lover at your side I'm a murder in a hide I'm a rocket in the sky I'm the fireball inside I'll paint it black and after seeing it, you'll dream of it tonight it's screaming in your ears, you're hearing it, you bleed with it and hide that you are not doing fine, you are not and won't be 'till I'm gone I am scatheless, I am scarred I'm the fear that frames your heart I'm a nightmare, I am real I am everything you need I am reckless, I am grim I'm the only one to win
dark shapes emerge from a haze rise at a dizzying pace approaching you and blackening your sky your memory is barely a blur it seems you're left in the lurch there is no point in trying to recall all thoughts condense into one: you must be still on the run! they won't give up unless you're out of reach their headlights cut through the dark somewhere a dog gives a bark close enough to almost feel 'em breathe they are still hard on your heels keep getting closer with zeal brace yourself, this race is not yet lost all thoughts condense into one: yes you are still on the run! don't give up until you're out of reach you keep on running through the night only the stars provide some light
do what you please, but let me be with all my heart, I disagree I want to know your plans, your each and every move you seem to use your heart, as if it were a tool sometimes the world is dark, with fire dust and broken hearts in all the wine we drank instead, I think we haven't found it yet it might be easier this way, that doesn't mean you have to stay it doesn't mean we have to part, so come on, let me be the one! don't count on me, to get you there I might be wrong, but I don't care there is a place like this, for each and everyone yet when you find it, it still makes you stare and stun
misery is what you ride, you never cease to show your remarks are always snide, we can't return a blow you think you rule the world with your attitude, in fact you're just a snot it's only in your dreams, that you look so cool, go wrap it up and get out of sight get out of sight every time you come around, the sun is going down misery is gaining ground, but all you do is frown there used to be a point in respecting you, I've come to think there's not you want to drown yourself in eternal gloom? well I don't give a ... get out of sight
lay beside me in the sand close your eyes and grab my hand I will have to let you go oh, but you already know share this moment here with me I need, I have to let you be and she said: wrap your arms around my waist I will kiss you for the taste I will be there when you're gone remembering everything you've done get me through this, will you try? I might, I need it one more time I can see it in your eyes you still believe in all his lies


As indicated in the title and the cover artwort this is not just a record with sides A and B but rather two individual EPs arranged around the title tracks "truth" and "lies".

While "truth" is the first song on the TRUTH side, its opponent "lies" is the last song on the LIES side. This means on Vinyl the two opponents are physically as far away from each other as can be and (in this playing order) also the first and the last song played.
