Who is there to lead when we're all blind?

Who is there to take and face the pain?

Who is there to make us all aligned?


Welcome to reality, where the truth is hidden in an oily sea

Welcome to reality, where facts are written off as bigotry

Welcome to reality, you won't last long if you sing the song of truth.


The anger brims alike a volcanic burst

When you strive for the knowledge you for so long thirst

Who are they to keep it away

To steal away our only ray

of light of hope, engulfed in decay

You struggle and fight will all your might but you cannot escape the fate that rakes your soul with every rake as it breaks your heart it's all so fake. They may say life is what you make IT.

But if it truly is so than so many wouldn't take it! 


Welcome to reality, where the shells are shallow and wounds are deep

Welcome to reality, where honesty is a synonym of blasphemy

Welcome to reality, where the blind sheep think they see

Welcome to reality, where greed is what will set you free...

Unfortunately, all too true, M. D. Very well expressed.
