The truth is not what we think

Always lying, never sleeps

What we are taught

Is not always right

The truth is not what we think

Running faster

Is what we must do

To get to the place

That holds what is true

Running faster

 

Barely breathing

I'm losing my breath

Running the staircase

To what is true

Barely breathing

 

Finally there, almost dead

To the old tree

Is what my grandfather said

The truth lies at its roots

Finally there, almost dead

 

Falling to the ground

Searching for answers

I did not know this would cause death

Lying on the ground, still no knowledge

Falling to the ground
