Every Lie Is True

from by Jean-Roch Roy



After news o'clock
And the doors are locked
Turns himself in

In a gloomy mood
As he slips into

And then he wakes
His sleep was dreamless again
Crawls out of bed
Drifts across the floor
Opens wide the door
Looks up and says

Even the sky is blue

Let the air flow in
Let the air flow out

Just to be alive
Doesn't make a life
And then he wakes
How can he breathe relevance
Into his life?
Is he running from
Is he running to
Or standing still?

Even the sky is blue

Subatomic world
Or a prophet's words
Which to believe?

In the starlit space
Or a laughing face
What do you see?

It's suddenly clear:
Meaning is not inherent
It's just given
By the ones you love
By the ones who care
And by yourself

So every lie is true
If it speaks to you
Every lie is true
If you want it
