"Our Truth EP" is the first single by Italian gothic metal band Lacuna Coil from the album Karmacode. The song was also featured on the soundtrack to Underworld: Evolution. It was a Top 30 Active Rock single on the Billboard Charts. The video was on "hot rotation" on MTV Italy and received significant airplay on American music channels such as MTV on T-Minus Rock and MTV2 on Headbanger's Ball.

Lyrically, the song delves into denying and forgetting one's past by creating a new truth as time goes by.

The song is somewhat different in sound compared to the band's typical work as it features a more profound Asian influence. The song is based heavily on the Phrygian and Phrygian dominant modes, which are characteristic of Egyptian music and Arabic music. A shamisen, a Japanese string instrument, is featured in the opening and ending of the song and a faint sitar can be heard during the verses.

The song is featured as an on-disc track in Rock Band Unplugged, Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Revolution. In all but the latter, it is a master recording (a cover version was provided for its inclusion in Rock Revolution).

Music video[edit]

The video for the song was shot on 3 December 2005[1] in Los Angeles by Fort Awesome. It was produced by Rocket Entertainment and featured Cynthia Freund as costume designer.[2] The video came out on February, 2006 and was made available on the U.S iTunes Store in October 2008. It features the band playing in what appears to be a snowglobe.

In 2006 it was nominated for the "Best Group Video" category at the Italian Premio Videoclip Italiano, losing against Subsonica's "Incantevole".[3]
