In this life you make no decisions.

Swallow the truth and spit out lies

Spreading them with the greatest precision.

The man who doesn't live is sure to die.

*

Try to say yes in the hardest situations.

Try to stay where they want you to stay.

It's hard not to give into life's sweet temptations.

But saying no is not the only way.

*

Say these words and hope that you mean them.

Please don't lie, no don't pretend.

The truth is a valuable gem

That human kind now has to defend.

*

You say you still posess that virtue

An act you thought you played discreetly

Until I found out it wasn't true.

Innocence is lost completely

I figured that out when I found you.
