Wall of Lies

Wall of Lies

A Poem by Balance

A song about lies.


Resentment’s overwhelming me,

Its eating me inside,

Comes out so easly from my mouth,

False excuses and more lies.

And as the day progresses,

There is no turning back,

Another fake tear is shed,

I'm well prepared with alibis.


“I swear to tell the truth”,

Said the man on the chair,

Kissed his life goodbye as

Burned scent filled the air

When they pulled the switch... down




All my life,

Ive been giving wrong answers

Bending the truth

Whatever gets me through the night

All my lies

Are served Wrapped up in gold

Piles up brick after brick

Creating a wall of lies

"You are my only one"

Her husband whispered softly to her,

Kissed her lips goodbye,

Went into the arms of another.

The last verse is relatable except it's the other way around. My mom was the cheater. Anyway good song nonetheless. I like anything with lies since I can so ealily relate :)

I like the flow, the words melt gently into another. Lyrical in a sense. Great piece, can't wait to see it finished.

Wow, this is a great piece I just wish I had the rhythm that you desired when you wrote it so I could say it correctly. Good work keep it up

Whatever to get you through the night...
Good line. Used a lot in real life.

I love the ending! To my knowledge, that's as deceiving as any ending could get, and I love it! And the image described was also well done, I enjoyed this.

the first paragraph is a bit awkward for me, there is something lacking on it..all in all your should continue this..its very good so far.

This is so beautiful... It has such wonderful melancholy grace that underlies your carefully constructed stanzas... It makes me want to read more. This is amazing. Such a great piece.
