So,
Think you have won
Today,
It's just begun

Launch a barrage of vicious lies
To tax the heart and mind

Behold through muddy rivers
Flows crystals waters

Pivot a man's most enduring friend
Into his newfangled enemy

Amid stormy clouds
Seeps rays of sunlight

Devour someone's dreams
And diminish their hopes

Underneath the rust
Lies unmarred gold

How do I perceive these things?

Because I possess the truth
And today it will strike you down
Like a fine trenchant sword
You will hear my every word
FOR WHAT YOU FEAR HAS ARRIVED

Surrounded by darkness at all angles
Form within radiates the light of truth

Decimate the body
The soul remains untainted

Lost in a maze of deception
I will allow truth to guide me to an exit

In the midst of a nightmare
I envision a dream

The truth allows me to foresee these things
The one thing
That will never be taken from me
This is forever unbending
As a mountain is immovable

So I shall carry my sword
As you continue to embrace self-deception
