Truth


When you tell it out, tell it slant
As it always hurt, and to always say it you must have learnt
Why it is good to dwell in honesty

It sets you free from the chains of lies
That you were fed up with as they made your heart turn blue like the skies
For the face of truth awakens us

To make a man say the truth, you don't have to set for him a snare
But simply give him a mask to wear
As the face of truth is covered with a brilliant golden orb

You can bend it or twist it
But to change the truth is something you can't try even a bit
Because its eye feeds us and it puts the devil to shame

The truth is always strong however weak it may appear
Always say it with no fear

Far south the lift,
