I know some truths,

Most I that I can not prove.

Too many have seen me brake therules

And this has taken it's toll..

I've seen many die,

Forced into living petty lives,

By the ignorance of others,

and their craftylies.

And ths has taken it's toll..

I have friends lost in life,

They shun the light,

And only seek the blindness ofnight.

And this has taken it's toll..

And as for me,

How can I teach,

What I can't be?

And this has taken it's toll.
