River Of Lies


I'm lost
in a river of lies
Caught in the current
of this human trait

There's somethings in life
you can do nothing about
You just have to wait
until people see for themselves

That there's people with two faces
who fool everyone around

They'll lie to you
They'll steal from you
They'll believe their own lies
to keep their way of life

Watch out for this kind

    Truth can be found if only one does recognize that the lies come from within man. Truth takes reassessment and research.
