[a]Oasis[/a] should have realised it wasn't going to get any better than Knebworth, but the brutal truth is that too many people were making too much money for it to be allowed to stop.
At least they are still standing. But it's been a close call. If 'Be Here Now' was the sound of Oasis staggering through the blizzard of superstardom, barely conscious of where they were going nor particularly caring one way or another, then its successor is a twitchy, tentative attempt at dealing with life as it really is (albeit as it really is with shedloads of wedge). And as...

Oasis - Don't Believe The Truth: Wikipedia Album Entry
Don't Believe the Truth is the sixth studio album by Oasis, released on 30 May 2005. It reached #1 in the UK Albums Chart with first week sales of just under 238,000, becoming the 9th fastest selling album ever in the UK. The album entered the U.S. charts at #12, with 65,000 albums sold in the first week, the highest any Oasis album has reached there since 1997 with Be Here Now, although its chart stay was brief. Don't Believe the Truth went triple platinum in the U.K. in the first week of 2006, and in the U.S. has gone to sell over 200,000 units. As of June 2008, Don't Believe the Truth has sold over 4 million copies worldwide.
Every member of the band contributed to the writing of tracks for the album, and the album is the first where all duties were divided between the band members. On some of the tracks regular bass player Andy Bell handled guitar, while Gem Archer and Noel Gallagher contributed bass to other songs. Don't Believe the Truth is the first Oasis record to feature the drumming of Zak Starkey, who replaced Oasis' longtime member Alan White.
Liam also had a larger impact on the album by his developing songwriting. Noel has said that this album is his favourite of Oasis' last four, because all members have contributed to it. This, he claims, has given it a different feel to a typically Noel-written Oasis album.
The band embarked on a massive world-wide tour that started off at the London Astoria for their Don't Believe the Truth Tour, visiting 26 countries and playing to 2 million people. This resulted in the making of Lord Don't Slow Me Down, a film later released on DVD.

I carry a madness
Everywhere I go
Over the border
And back to the snow
A little space, a little time
Seen what it can do
A little faith, peace of mind
See what passes through
Four seasons, seconds, flicker, flash I'm alone
A lonely screen provides the scene, it's no hope
Every night I hear you scream
But you don't say what you mean
Suddenly I found
That I'd lost my way in this city
The streets and the thousands of colors
All bleed into one
I could be your lover
You could be all mine
We go on forever
Till the end of time
I gotta show you, man, the meaning of soul
I'm taking on love tonight
Get outta my way, young man, I dig what you say
But that ain't enough, alright
I sold my soul for the second time
'Cause the man don't pay me
I begged my landlord for some more time
He said, "Son, the bills are waiting"
I'm seeing a whole
Another world in my mind
Girl, I'm feeling
I'm breathing in love all the time
Calling on the stars to fall
And catch the silver sunlight in your hands
Come for me and set me free
Lift me up and take me where I stand
I know you think you deserve
An explanation on the meanings of life
But what you think that you heard
Slipped away out the back of your mind
Who kicked a hole in the sky
So the heavens would cry over me?
Who stole the soul from the sun
In a world come undone at the seams?
