The Lies

The words will tell of secrets in my hands Don’t heed the warning present as it stands For even when the darkness covers sky My friend, believe, to you I would not lie They seek to turn us toward revenge and hate Please hear me now and pray that I’m not late As through the ages by your side I stand I care not for your money, titles, land I love you for a brother and a friend Let not their words propel us to an end For even in the darkness I will pray That power over you they’d not hold sway That hate you bear should not now turn to me I plead for you to listen and to see I don’t bear malice towards you or your kin As long as I have known you we did win But now I fear I may have come too late For now inside your eyes I see your hate You lapped up eagerly all of their lies And tossed me out and off into the skies
