tornado of deceit

lost in the haze of destiny
i wandered away listlessly
i walked till i stumbled upon the lake
where the truth dwell in the wake

i looked at it with all my eyes and ears
till it brought to them tears
i couldn't take the truth for what it was
and ran away as fas'

time was past since i had given in
i became part of the sin
this world of deceit engulfed me
the truth in the shroud of lies, i see

it was too much to take
too much of a trouble to rake
it was best forgotten
and live with the sin

as i walked away
i heard its cry say,
"let me be free
from the bonds of destiny"

how could i,
a puppet at this game of lie
free it and let it go
when i was still to know

i stood there before it
agony on my face writ
while i tried to drag myself
away from the truth itself

it was tough
the going was rough
the lies besieged me
they never could leave thee

then i lost
my soul was what it cost
and though i decided to fight fate
it was too late

the truth was gone forever
in the worlds beyond yonder
lost, never to return
in the sands of the lost urn
