Treasure Island

A Few Words of Wisdom


Never believe all the stories
Trust only in your heart
Never try to finish something
That you didn't even start

For the years are quick to pass
And I beg to differ the rules
For a good man is hard to last
When surrounded by a group of fools

A truth is hard to tell
When a lie has taken it's place
But the inside of a man
Can be seen right on his face

So a few words of wisdom
From the mouth of a fool
If you believe in the lie
The lie will be true

If you believe in the truth
You're on solid ground

But if you think your fooling somebody
You're the only fool around

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
