Truth stands still

The veil of unhappiness envelopes
The storm of treachery gathers,
The wind of chicanery blows
But truth stands still


The tissues of lies expand
The backstabbers are having a field day
The cloud of betrayal gathers

If the darkness of lies reign for a thousand years
The sparkling light of truth shall dethrone it in a second

You cannot kill the truth
You cannot murder her
You cannot kill the truth
Because truth is constant
