Living a Lie

Living in no-man’s land
Living in everyone’s land
choices, choices
never from the inside out
always from the outside in
what do you like, what do you see
what do you want from me
on the outside fitting in
on the inside always out
conflict of day, contrast of night
Living my part
Living your play
… it all really is … just Living a Lie

the paradox
