Lilypad Lake

Floating petals on a lilypad lake, Autumn leaves slowly drifting down to the ground, Swans swim in graceful harmony, Alluring sirens unleash the desire within. Autumn leaves slowly drifting down to the ground, Catch your hope before it falls, Alluring sirens unleash the desire within, Keep your grip on reality or illusions will consume you. Reach for an illusion, Fall for reality, Dreams turned nightmares, Flowering bushes hide poisonous snakes. Fall for reality, Dark fingers twisting in your soul, Flowering bushes hide poisonous snakes, Beware of all that shimmers. Let your truths flow, Lies tempt the devil, All in or all out, Indesivnese, so often your downfall. Lies tempt the devil, Strait minds fail on curved roads, Indesivnese, so often your downfall, Minds going in a thousand directions at once fail to notice signs. There is no right or wrong, Shades of gray crumble when they see the sun, Yin and Yang, truth and lies, Pick your side before sunrise. Shades of gray crumble when they see the sun, Know when to hide, know when to run, Yin and Yang, truth and lies, If you know what's around you, you know what's inside. A glamor protects all that shouldn't be seen, Swans swim in graceful harmony, Learn fast and live, learn slow and die, Floating petals on a lilypad lake.

Yeah, the info on Pantoums was very confusing and counteracting. Thank you.
