eye’s lies

in all these eyes in all the world
lies an ocean as deep as this heart
that ever-feeling, ever-changing tide
washes the shores of countless minds
in all these eyes lay different truths
and in each truth lay different lies
behind them all – behind each eye
the one God keeps the real inside
the magic, it seems, comes not in truth
but in the lies that each eye tells
the endless flights of fellow eyes
keeps us looking for God inside
and to these eyes I tell my lies
and try to hide the truth inside
