Beautiful Illusion

All these lies


We call the truth


I want it back


My misspent youth


The sweat, the tears


The juice uncouth


The precious fluids


Like stale vermouth


 


All these lies


The love we waste


Our swallowed pride


Leaves an aftertaste


Of dust and rust


And crusty paste


Feelings spent


In senseless haste


 


All these lies


These mass delusions


Hopes and dreams


And swirled allusions


Passing loves


In veiled confusion


I see them now


Beautiful illusions


 


The lies, the truth


Stir together here


A thousand smiles


Ten thousand fears


Too many miles


Too many years


So many voices


So hard to hear


 


Who am I?


Where are you?


Is it over now?


Yes, I see the truth


Night is clearing


Gone's the confusion


Everything now...


A beautiful illusion.
