The Easy Way Out
or
Is It Just Me?

Vast mountain of lies
and the truth waits silently at the top
But when you scale the mountain
It continues to grow
Because the lies form on my tongue
Building higher and higher.

Bottomless ocean of lies
and the truth is in the blackest depths
Yet when you dive down,
You keep going deeper and deeper
until you run out of air
Because the lies get heavier
and sick quicker.

Long tunnel of lies
and you chase the truth through it
But the tunnel is a maze,
With no lights and no real end
And you are lost, lost,
Lost in the lies,
Lost without the truth.

There isn't a solution because
the lies are easier,
Even though in the end
they make everything harder.
