Half-Truity Lyrics:

Verse 1:
One is for envy and one just for spite
The country in my heart, they show me new lies
Donīt make it better
Twisting knives through somebodyīs ?help?
On to someone else
Something weīre wishing will leave this behind
The answer is there, they need a new lie
Donīt make it better
Checking out can never ??

Chorus:
Anyway,
If we donīt make it alive
Itīs a hell of a good day to die
Our lives it takes up
Only lasts for so long
And itīs ashes to ashes again
Should you (we?) even try to pretend
(all?)Our lives it takes up
Only lasts for so long

Verse 2:
Whenever you wake me thereīs burn in the way?
Like it is alright to try to go ahead
If it gets the world
Try to see towns ?? ??
Watch the scene revert
Open my eyes
Will (Weīll) leave this behind
?? to get out
?? getting on our lives ??
Donīt make it better
When you canīt see ??

Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooa

Bridge:
Living and waiting
???
If it gets the way
??? ??? ??? donīt matter
Matter
Matter

Anyway,
If we donīt make it alive
Itīs a hell of a good day to die
Our lives it takes up
Only lasts for so long
And itīs ashes to ashes again
Should you (we?) even try to pretend
(all?)Our lives it takes up
Only lasts for so long

About the artist behind Half-truism Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
