Learned wisdom – bend or break; the world gorges on ideals and dejects violent hypocrisies.


I’ve been set adrift by all this fake reality and all those lies,
By mild hypocrisy, half-pleasures and madness in disguise…
Always forced to choose between some lesser evils, I have closed my eyes
And fake-believed the stone to be melted ice.

Ch: All those lies, all those lies you’ve been revealing to me,
All this pain, all this pain that boils in me,
All this time, all this time I’ve wasted trying to see
Through this old veil of misconceptions and deceit.

…Lament of the hopeless…

Oh, but now I know my struggle’s pointless and my pain is here to stay
And I believe there is a way to get through all dismay:
To embrace and bend, to blind myself, to rot with this decay –
You all pathetic hopeful, let me drift away!
