it's not the truth that counts

avevo pensato di bloggare ma alla fine ho scritto una canzone
registrata male cantata a cavolo e suonata peggio e dimentichiamoci la pronuncia, ma comunque
strange



Let's be honest here
looks like time has come
to worry about all the things that will come
- you know they are coming, you know
Have you thought of that?
Have you made a plan?
'Cause you cannot believe you can pass the frontier
without a face you can show
to everyone
and without a smile
smile to make them feel comfortable
tell them
you know how this must be done
show them
you have learnt the principles
then go and do what you like
it's not the truth that counts, it's the smile

Let's be honest here
you can't hope to stand
in front of them all with that look like you know
that no-one will take you seriously
Have you thought of that?
Do you plan to act?
'Cause the time – see – is passing and you're still the same
and you haven't reached a single goal
of the long list
of happiness
so smile to make them feel comfortable
tell them
you know how this must be done
show them
you have learnt the principles
then go and do what you like
it's not the truth that counts, it's the smile

'Cause the time – see – is passing and you're still the same
and you haven't reached a single goal
of their long list
it is their list
it is so long
of their happiness
it is their list
it is theirs
why is yours
why is yours so strange, so strange?

Let's be honest here
I guess that you know
that you're hopeless and lost and what counts the most
is that you don't really care
I see you won't act
and this is actually your plan
You will keep on avoiding their comforting clichées
You will stick with your face and your colours that don't match
You will spend half your time with loners and madmen
and the other half you won't be speaking our language
You will be overdramatic, uneven, erratic
You will talk of ideals and giving for nothing
You will hold on to ethics that make everyone laugh
and when the curtains of night will fall on us all
you will laugh at everyone
