So often untruths are spoken
For some they roll easily off the tongue
For others lying leaves them broken
Yet it is lies that keep us human
Lies that keep us moving
Lying to ourselves
Lying to our enemies
Lying to our friends
But in each lie there is truth
With each lie a person tells
You understand more about them
Than if they told the truth
You know their insecurities
What they wish to keep hidden
You know what they want you to think
So to a clever man
Lies are the key to understanding someones soul
