FAKE HAPPINESS

 
There are many tricks to the slave trade
the face we wear is one
Cheerful Smiling faces, happy high fives
dancing under the sun

Cover the truth as best you can
is instructed to every man
To fake-it-til-you-make-it
urged throughout ones’ Life span

Look upon the inner being
with open eyes of better seeing


Pretend that you are gleeful,
full of wealth and care
free of woe
You are far above the clouds
and not involved in the ole heave hoe

Do not permit the world to see
the truth beneath the hide
Bottle it up and press it down
to keep it deep inside

Look upon the inner being
with open eyes of better seeing


Ignore the burdens of the chains in life
Dull the senses
'til null the pains of strife
What’s the meaning of this evilness
This is not the path to holy bliss

Wherefore art thy shameful sin
Tis’ Hidden betwixt the evil grin
Forced Social courtesies to live a lie
Taunting embarrassingly False pride

Look upon the inner being
with open eyes of better seeing


Uncontrolled envious jealousy rage
Solely for a phony life that’s staged
Secret groups, we give our pledge
between us a widely divided wedge

Why is the truth of my state deemed mean
Why the view on reality found only in a dream
Why must You "Permit-me-to-be-honest"

Look upon the inner being
with open eyes of better seeing


Surely, in this philosophy
I’m not the lonely monist
