While a lie might grow awhile until it fools a whole people
Chasing the truth like fools can be the root of great evil
How many wrongs are done in the name of good and god?
Even the fruits of sin can fund a worthy cause
And a tissue of lies cause one to fall in love
Love is an addiction that’s hard to get rid of
To fend off of an oppressor you fight fire with fire
While fire can consume so can it warm the bed you lie in
Winter’s cold is sickening but so are spring’s dandelions
Without its thorns to make it prickly would a rose be quite as pretty?
Beauty is such a fragile thing, a superficial fling
But would you rather trust a harpy or a prince charming?
Good looks can grant a job - good grief if you’re a fraud
Even hollow words can fill the world with hope
Powerful enough to motivate change and growth
Growing up makes you wise or makes you weak
And makes you stubborn, makes you believe the promise
Of the lies that fuel prejudice
