Sea of Truth
A cell of shallow frozen guilt
holding a heart that always beats.
Four walls the sun seldom sees,
there's no lock, yet there is a key.
So many stare, yet cannot pass
for the key cannot be made;
in the fires of hope and truth alas
lies crumble then finally give way.
In the rubble of what you have built,
the light shines right off the sea.
You'll build your cell lie by lie
Until the truth finally sets you free.
