About The Truth

"The Truth" is a song by the Christian rock band Relient K. It was their only single from the Apathetic EP, and was only their second single to ever be released off an EP that was only found on an EP, the first being "A Penny Loafer Saved, A Penny Loafer Earned" from the Employee of the Month EP. Both songs were released for Christian radio. The song was ranked at #21 in ChristianRock. Net's annual top 100, and made it into the top 5 on their weekly top 30. The Relient K song "In Like A Lion (Always Winter)" (also found on The Apathetic EP]) is based on the book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was originally written in case the band was asked to do a song for the same movie's "Music Inspired By" album. "The Truth" was written for the same reason, but the words were changed for the song once the band realized that neither song would make it onto the album. Both songs were then placed onto the EP. Matt Thiessen said that "The Truth" was originally about how everyone wouldn't believe the character of Lucy, although she'd never lied to them before, but he then changed it to fit a relationship with God.

And I've collected all these thoughts
And I'm dying just to lose them
And if Your words are true or not
I'll die trying to prove them
But I'll just have to accept
That my mind is so inept
And that the only thing that's left
For me to do is to trust you

Convince me because I really need your help
Convince me, because I can't see this former self

I'll put the emphasis on the evidence,
Begging for the proof
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

This is so unnerving, I know you've never lied to me before
But the things you're telling me, I can't yet believe, yet can't ignore
But I'll just have to accept
That my mind is so inept
And that the only thing that's left
For me to do is to trust you

I'll put the emphasis on the evidence,
Begging for the proof
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth
So to place our lives into Your hands
Confide in what you do
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

Its the world full of cynics
You say to stay alive in it,
You've got to stick with what you know
But the soul is always aching
For the heart to start taking,
A chance by letting go(So let go(let go))
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

So to place our lives into Your hands
Confide in what you do
Sometimes when you're trying to sleep
When all your doubts and your faith don't agree
It's cause

Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth
