Depeche Mode – Policy Of Truth

Official music video 'Policy Of Truth' by 'Depeche Mode' taken from the album 'Violator' (1991). Video Director: Anton Corbijn.

Lyrics:

You had some­thing to hide
Should have hid­den it, shouldn't you
Now you're not satisfied
With what you're being put through
It's just time to pay the price
For not listen­ing to advice
And decid­ing in your youth
On the policy of truth

Things could be so dif­fer­ent now
It used to be so civilised
You will always won­der how
It could have been if you'd only lied
It's too late to change events
It's time to face the consequence
For deliv­er­ing the proof
In the policy of truth

Never again is what you swore
The time before
Never again is what you swore
The time before

Now you're stand­ing there tongue tied
You'd bet­ter learn your les­son well
Hide what you have to hide
And tell what you have to tell
You'll see your prob­lems multiplied
If you con­tinu­ally decide
To faith­fully pursue
The policy of truth

Never again is what you swore
The time before
Never again is what you swore
The time before
