“Flower of Lies”

In 2003 I received second place in the Canada Music Week Writing Competition for my song “Flower of Lies.”

Flower of Lies

It was great for a while
You seemed to be the one you claimed
If there was a difference
You’d conceal it
Adjust yourself to be the same

You hid yourself well
No one knew
Much of who you really were
But one thing you did not suspect
When you slipped the wrong lie you were heard

Don’t bury lies beneath the soil
They won’t stay there they will rise
And through the ground the sun’ll shine
Its rays will raise a flower of lies

They held the threat against you
To their own advantage you were under blackmail
They thought you were willing to give up
Your life for a lie that was bound to fail

Blame the expectations
You wanted to be expected
Now face the consequences
A liar is disrespected
Blame the expectations
You wanted to be expected
Now face those consequences
A liar is disrespected

True colors on the flowers show
The petals scattered for all to know
The flower confesses for you
