Shall I hide here in plain sight
Or spread my wings and take to flight

In the darkest corner of my soul
I dare my being to become whole

To know the truth may drive me mad
Am I evil or only sad

The truth eludes in every way
Should I survive another day

Alone and confused in my jaded mind
I look too deep what will I find

Fear of the truth inside of me
Alas it is but the truth that sets us free
