Lyrics
Now when the rumor comes to your town
It grows and grows, where it started, no one knows
Some of your neighbors will invite it right in
Maybe it's a lie
Even if it's a sin
They'll repeat the rumor again

Close your eyes, hang down your head
Until the fog blows away, let it blow away
Open up your arms and feel the good
It's a-comin', a brand new day

Big men, little men turned into dust
Maybe it was all in fun
They didn't mean to ruin no one
Could there be someone
Someone here among this crowd
Who's been accused
Had his name so misused
And his privacy refused?

Close your eyes, hang your head
Until the fog blows away, let it blow away
Open up your arms and feel the good
It's a-comin', a brand new day
No, no, no

Now all you vigilantes wanna make a move
Maybe they won't, you know I sure hope they don't
For whether this rumor proves true or false
You can forgive or you can regret
But he will never ever forget

Close your eyes, hang down your head
Until the fog blows away, let it roll away
Open up your arms and feel the good
It's a-comin', a brand new day
