When did it happen, ain't no one can say
maybe it was years ago, or was it just yesterday?
Are we fools to believe in those we should trust?
Where is the truth, I'm sure that there must
Be some, somewhere, I just can't seem to find
The right answer, the question that lies
Behind the curtain, who's really pullin' the strings
I used to think that I knew, now it all seems so strange
overwhelmed by over-information
which way do you turn?
who can you believe, where can you learn
about what's real, what's not, my concern
What is truth if real isn't real
and your whole life has been burned
If two plus two doesn't equal four
If what's right before your eyes
Is called a pack of lies?
Is your conscious speaking to you
Maybe pay it some mind
If things don't seem right
Maybe there's an answer to find
So mystified by what's real or a lie
Is the truth dead, was it ever alive?
It has to be somewhere
It couldn't have died
Without it among us, how can we survive
This quicksand of lies, a world with no ties
It's not hard to imagine, look it's alive
But I gotta believe, I gotta have hope
That it's out there somewhere
Just need to throw it a roap
Like it's lost at sea, about to go down
Overwhelmed by the flood of lies that abound
Can it be rescued, can it be saved?
Before it's all lost, just washed away
But the real truth is love
And maybe we've just lost sight
Of the things that really matter
That make life alright
So I'll try and lose my hate
And not be afraid
And say to myself that I am not a slave
To those you say that I should lose faith
In my brothers and sisters, my friends, anyone
I'll say "go to hell" with a smile on my face
And give 'em a nod, a wink, 'cause I know that I've won!
Song lyrics, weird tempo, kind of "rapish" but it sort of works, lol, hope y'all like it.
