I was so sure I knew the facts,
But the facts are swayed as easily as spoken words.
Lies and rumors.
Truth turns to fiction
And fiction turns to truth.
And as inevitably as the world turns
Belief becomes fear and fear feels real.
Before the blood even flows.
Divine power is in belief,
Or belief is the power itself.
It spreads quickly.
Deadly and full and unyielding.
And so it goes.
I thought I knew the truth in it all,
But the truth was hidden in my beliefs.
