YPampered pumped and pilfered
Sunlight barely penetrates some places
In our thoughts in idle moments
We only discuss secrets in the lunar glow

By the slot machines on Antioch
Not living in the fire but hiding  in the smoke
The devil and his angels are the cowards
Never present when judgements handed down

Operating in the shadows
In the silence between our  thoughts
Away from sunlit paths
You said you would  tell me everything

I lied she said.  You lied I said
You said you would wait for me for ever
I lied I said.  You lied she said
you said you would only be the truth

we lied, for love
we lied for peace of mind
we lied to buy some time and now
the truth lies broken by the roadside

Your words appreciated
