As You walk outside into the calm, cool air,
You are greeted by silence that once meant safety.
But rather than content, you are filled with paranoia.
Humanity used to fear dying; now most fear living.
The noise and light are oozing with lies.
The same lies that fuel our distorted intentions.
“You’re playing with fire…” They used to say.
Now They’re feeding you with matches and butane.
From enemies. to friends in the blink of an eye,
But does it count as a blink if Your eyes were closed the whole time?
A life of reality is becoming a myth,
Now an inconvenience instead of what’s normal.
You see, monsters don’t really like the dark,
They prefer to be hidden in the center stage spotlight.
Teaching new generations and rerouting our brains,
“Change is a must!” that is the motto They use.
But who knew change. was the new definition of Deception?
