Track Name: True to your Conscience (discomix)
You've got to be true, be true to your conscience
You've got to be true, be true to your conscience

When it's time to build a shelter
From the raging storm
You gonna find out what you're made of
You gonna find out what you're made of
In frozen desolation
Seeking comfort and warmth
But it's the fire you're afraid of
Is it your power you're afraid of?
It is said
That no word speak loud as action
Don't be misled
By deceit and distraction
I've been telling you
Over and over
When your back against the wall
You bound to discover
You've got to be true

Vanity, partiality
Wipe them from your reality
No hopelessness, covetousness
The day you were born
Is the day you were blessed
When it's time to keep your word
Despite your pain and hurt
You're gonna find out what you're made of
You gonna find out what you're made of
To know flesh is bound
To return unto this earth
Is it time that you're afraid of
Yes it's time that you're afraid of
It is said
What don't bend, it will break
Only a fool
Never learn from his mistake
I've been telling you
Over and over
When your back against the wall
Your self you'll discover

You've got to be true, be true to your conscience
You've got to be true, be true to your conscience
You've got to be true
