A new age of reason,
Brain treason to trick the mind.
What good is searching
If nothing's there to find?
We arrive at this place
Of no return, my brothers,
Only to discover that our minds have led us away
So far from the painful truth
Of who we are.

What's right is wrong,
What's come has gone,
What's clear and pure is not so sure.
(It came to me.)
All promises become a lie,
All that's benign corrupts in time,
(The fallacy)
Of Epiphany.

Come forth, bear witness,
See the profit from your loss.
Beg for forgiveness
Only after you tally the cost.
We arrive at this place
Of no return, my sisters,
Only to discover that our values ran us aground
On the shoal in the sea of what
We could be.

What's right is wrong,
What's come has gone,
What's clear and pure is not so sure.
(It came to me.)
All promises become a lie,
All that's benign corrupts in time,
(The fallacy)
Of Epiphany.

If it's real for me, do I have to prove it to you?
Why do revelations fade to cold blue untruths?
It's oh so relative,
Subservient in total to one's perspective.

What's right is wrong,
What's come has gone,
What's clear and pure is not so sure.
(It came to me.)
All promises become a lie,
All that's benign corrupts in time,
(Mountains don't stand the test of time)
(The fallacy)
Of Epiphany.
Oh, always been in me.
