Web of Lies

Ahh... to spin this web into a lie,
Forsake the truth and then deny.
A silken web woven to any size,
To lose the truth within one's eyes.

Within the womb life slowly dies.
This lifeless tomb of hidden cries.
There's no success if no one tries
With no commitment in our lives.

The sun sinks in the swollen skies
And darkness lends no compromise.
So now we turn to claim our prize.
We sell the truth that no none buys,

That which is solely based on a lie,
And yet we try, and yet we try...
