spacer What is the Truth spacer

Systems of belief and worship
Taught to me in my distant youth
Shows that truth has it's religion
And every religion has its truth.
What is it we are to believe
When science explodes each myth
That a smidgen of the truth remains
In the threads of each tallith?

  Does the truth run through the bible?
Is there substance in these tales,
Or have we been brainwashed with religion,
Do we know where truth prevails?
For each truth has it's religion
And each religion has its truth.
I believe in the Spirit that resides within me
I believe in the Spirit of my youth.
  Systems of belief or worship
Have been with us since our time began,
Introduced to control the people
Despite man's inhumanity to man.
For without such Spiritual deterrent
Social structure would wilt and die.
So if there's no truth in our religion,
Is all religion, just one big lie?
