Fear hides quietly within voiceless lies
it grows into an exquisite addiction
warm like home as it burns you alive
defacing hope while shackled to submission

Intimacy cuts through veiled lies
unlacing bonds of bodacious dissent
it can unravel an improbable disguise
of morality dressed as half-hearted intent

No scale exists to weigh the heart of lies
when allowed by clamoring machines
to turn nostalgic prisons into lullabies
with windows onto lands harboring dreams

Soul maps chart boundless territories
their changing borders retell ancient stories
