lied to, coming out of the womb

lied to, all the way to the street

lied to, any time you had questions

lied to & then told not to cheat

lied to, surrounded by “justice”

lied to, peering out from behind bars

lied to, when they put you in a straightjacket

lied to, when they dubbed you a star

lied to, when you fucked up again

lied to, when they rounded you up

lied to, when they said it wasn’t your fault

lied to, when they wanted your stuff

lied to, when you flicked on the tele

lied to, when you clicked it off

lied to, by the people around you

lied to, when you locked yourself up

lied to, going into self-seclusion

lied to, by the only one you trust

lied to, because you know no difference

lied to, just to hear what you want

lied to, when younger & naïve

lied to, when older & tired

lied to, because no one will help you

pull yourself from the fire.
