The truth lies bleeding in the snow
From all human evils that come from below

As lie follows lie, hate follows hate
Pick on one side and choose to berate

Unholy alliances in rage and in vent
One single narrative the truth has been bent

The victim card so well played like an ace
To hell with the truth it’s about saving face

Selective memories are simply convenient
Regardless of fact that they’re too incoherent

Supposed victims make more of the same
Will trying to refute this obvious claim

As pain fans outwards in random attack
It all gets deflected at one single back

Everyone says they won’t take a side
Which is easy to say; where no truth can abide

The truth like an alien autopsy
Like a yet to be proven cancerous biopsy

And as New Year dissolves; just another night
I say to my father on some things you were right

Happy New Year Dad
I Hope hell is warm enough for you
