If I ever lived this life more than anyone, I can trust myself to be back here again and see what went wrong

I lied to live, to love and to see

My lies have turned against me but I wonder why haven’t I?

My life seems to be a lie a lie I have lived so long

I wonder when I am dead will they come to haunt me will my deceit stay with me in my grave 

If I ever try to make things right will I live long to trust myself 

Not to lie not to feel empty inside…

My life feels empty now are the lies so bad have I ever lived a life that was true

What do I believe? What do I see?

Am I so blind to my own deceit?

Why don’t I hate myself if I have done wrong?

They tell me I have lied…

But, what is a lie?

To live is that a lie?

To love is that a lie?

To see is that a lie?

Why do I live if it is a lie?
