    Its just to big isn’t it
    Even when we are confronted with the truth
    We’d prefer to believe in the lie

    The lie is so much easier
    And absolves us of the guilt
    For not having known better

    But it was a lie
    A lie

    How can you feel guilty for having believed in a lie
    Where you easily duped
    Or cleverly misinformed

    No, not me, I know everything
    I acquired all this knowing from years of education
    And life revolves around this sacrosanct idealism

    Listen

    While I belch and fart all my learned opinions
    My loud voice scribble
    And my indoctrination

    And even when the cold slap of truth
    And all its proof
    Slams irrevocable into my face

    I will scoff

    Grow angry and militant
    March the streets with my banners of acceptance
    And be looking for kindle for the bonfire of witches

    And while we beat our souls in our temples
    In search for heaven
    Instead of heaven on Earth

    The lie twists and manipulates our history
    Cover-up and deceit
    For dogma and ideology

    Bury me, the consumerist slave of commercially
    Propagated minion of the deception
    Of telling God, what God is

    Ha ! No not me, I; know everything
    And if I can’t believe in anything
    Well then fuck it, I won’t believe in nothing

    And while I race and pirouette into every good time
    And the desperate madness will be all mine
    At least I will be enjoying myself

    I will be riding a drunken roller coaster
    Grinning in a ticker tape TV parade
    With a million flash photo’s of paparazzi

    I will be

    The epitome

    Of denial

    To the last

    And the end of the world came
    Not a day to soon
    And at last

    Its just to big isn’t it
    Even when we are confronted with the truth
    We’d prefer to believe in the lie

    The lie is so much easier
    And absolves us of the guilt
    For not having known better

    But it was a lie
    All of it
    A Lie
