“He was on top of the world
 He had nothing to envy 
He had all he has ever desired and even more

A source of motivation for some 
A benefactor for others
An accomplished man that evokes admiration and respect
It is all lies and wiles

 He himself felt empty and deceived on that night
The heart filled with anger 
He wonders if he would ever recover what he lost that night
Would his life be the same without it?

And also could the world ever forgive him if it knew?
If it knew what was not told
Behind all this greatness lies a secret
A secret that should remain buried
It is all lies and wiles.”
