It's All True

by Empty Orchestra



it's all true. everything you see here really happened,
like some fly that's trapped in amber, it doesn't move
it's all true. and the walls rise to the ceiling,
so they might give this room some meaning
and make it new

everything you thought you knew was never there
and everything that's solid now melts into air

"it's all true." it's like pulling out a loaded gun
in front of god and everyone, willing to shoot
everything is fine.
you don't have to worry about anything.
forget the noises that you might have heard last night.

and everything i'm telling you --
it's all funny because it's true.
and i'm not laughing much, are you?

it's all true -- everything these men have said here,
the things they've mounted all this evidence to prove.
and it's all true. everybody heard the witness,
and if the papers choose to print this, it must be...

Our songs are fistfights of traditions and generations and genres and tempos and hope and doubt and death and punchlines. Our roots are in punk rock and our ambitions are for song creation without boundaries.
We are a community. We love making songs, we love playing songs, we love you. Thanks. This is fun.
