One angle from the basket

Lies, lies, lies

The only place to feel safe

Where words and worlds

Can be just as you wish them

For some moments

I would say not to blink

Or breath loud enough or it will break

Right in the arms of reality, awake

Good things never last

And nothing good is ever good enough to keep

We're all too small to see

Even with all the years and inch

We die stuck in where we begun

Living to give up the things we want

Pleasing to convince others of who we are

Lies, lies, lies

The salvation we have moulded

The only escape from the testing eyes

A satisfaction to the demanding ears

A world you can create for just you

Alone is the only way we can

Alone is the way we ought to live

Lies help break us free

A wall, a fence away from the pinch

For sometime.

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
