Sweet Deceit

(all) men are bound up with an inextricable desire
that eventually causes all suffering and pain
driven by their craving they hook up together
and tighten their net with comforting deceit
then continue their strains

Cause that’s what friends are for, a deception so sweet
Their love and respect will sedate some distress
But back on their own all men die from their hunger
To matter, forever, to make their voice heard
Not to die in vain

The truth always hurts, cause that’s what truth is
It’s pain, it ain’t pretty. And you can’t be freed

A burning desire to do things that matter
A wasting flame keeps all men running around
The fire is blazing when they follow their dreams
And they finally smolder when truth shines upon them
And nothing remains

The truth always hurts, cause that’s what truth is
It’s pain, it ain’t pretty. And you can’t be freed

That’s what friends are for, a deception so sweet

I love you and so I will sedate the pain
It’s all I can do, loving you in sweet deceit
