In The Alley Of Truth - Poem by Pete Rivera

As I was standing by the hillside
A voice spoke to me
It said this world you have forgotten
Will finally be set free

And I prayed to a spirit
I wasn't completely sure of
But what if I wanted to fall
Instead of come up to find love

Oh, these lies
Killing me
Killing me
Shot dead

Oh, it's you
In the alley of truth
I see the sparkle in your eye
You can't deny it

As I spoke to the river
And breathed life to you
You turned your head away
Away from the truth

The truth
The truth
Where can I find the truth?
Is it inside of me?
Where can I find the truth?
Is it here with me?

I can't say
Please don't let me go
I'm lost
Be my light
Be my guide

You are so
