Sometimes just being one’s true self

means walking alone in the dark

seeing the backs of so called friends

when ya tell it like it really is

there’s always a high price to pay

in order to stay true to one’s self

far better to walk alone or perhaps

with just a friend or two

then to be surrounded by a chorus 

of wheeling and dealing yes men

who only tell ye what ya want to hear

stab ya in the back every chance they get

far better to watch with a tear in your eye

the herd plunge to a collective death

then to blindly follow a false prophet

into the jaws of death thru the gates of hell

far better to lie in a lonely grave

unmarked and perhaps utterly forgotten

then to be remembered as just another

unfortunate victim who lost their life 

by letting someone else do his thinking
