Tony Joe White – Closer To The Truth

Lyrics

Closer To The Truth

Strong instinct for survival
Romantically insane
Moving soft along the edge of time
Like a panther in the rain

Manipulated rebels
With a total disregard for the rules
When pride comes tumbling off the great white stallion
You move closer to the truth

And the search continues for the meaning
They build the cathedrals high
But we keep our weapons ready
Looming dark against the sky

They’re taking down the rain forest
Changing it to a room without a view
And the big trees fall like dominoes
And we move closer to the truth
The eagle watches from the mountain
As the warriors turn into fools
And the dice are thrown on sacred ground
And they move closer to the truth

And who’s gonna tell the children
How the rivers used to flow crystal blue
And we keep leaving scars on Mother Earth
And moving closer to the truth

Prevod na srpski

Bliže istini

Snažan instinkt za preživljavanje
Romantičarski lud
Lagano ideš po ivici vremena
Kao panter po kiši

Izmanipulisani buntovnici
Pravila potpuno zanemarujući
Kad se ponos stropošta sa velikog belog pastuva
Za korak si bliži istini

A potraga za smislom nastavlja se
Grade visoke katedrale
Ali oružje na gotovs  držimo
Nad nebom tamu nadvijamo

Ruše prašumu
U sobu bez pogleda je pretvaraju
A velika drva kao domine padaju
I mi smo korak bliži istini
Orao posmatra sa planine
Kako od ratnika postaju budale
A kocke su bačene na sveto tle
I oni su za korak bliži istini

A ko će pričati deci
Kako su nekad tekle kristalno plave reke
A mi i dalje majci Zemlji ostavljamo ožiljke
I sve smo bliži istini
