To See the Truth

To see the truth, close your eyes When your feet are chained in fog Do not look up at forged skies The songs have drowned in the smog. You are lost in a storm of dust To see the truth, close your eyes Grope in the dark for the hand you trust For something to make you realize. It is a world masked, bright with lies But if, blessed, you miss what’s gone To see the truth, close your eyes May you glimpse the promised dawn. Glittering gold has darkened the nights Closer, approaches the day of demise When blinded by the glaring lights To see the truth, close your eyes.
