You believe you
speak of truth
yet all I see
is contradiction.
Your acid tongue
lashes out,
leaving boils
on my skin
for every single
word you've spoken.

These lies
you tell
cannot provide
redemption.
You can only
manufacture
so much of
your own reality
before you're
forced to
break mirrors
just to save face.

I know that I can turn you on,
I wish I could just turn you off;
I never wanted this.
-Marilyn Manson; Mister Superstar

Great, the truth cannot be corrupted, and yet there are so many that push lies and tell you to shut up when you prove them wrong
