Never believe your eyes.
The only ones who tell the truth are lies.
If one day you don’t recognize yourself
looking deep into the mirror,
then the mirror at last is telling you the truth.
All reality is just a passing mirage,
and we are all deceived fools who believe in it,
while only the doubters have any reason,
only the sufferers know life,
only tears know love,
only pain is free from lies,
and only death can open your eyes
and will reveal the only actual reality
which is the somber machinations
behind this shallow faked shadow play,
which exists only to bury the soul alive.
