The naivete of the human soul,
And the way that temptations dangle in our way,
Can invoke the greatest of fools within us.
I was too close to see.
Too distant to hear the sirens wailing.
But the truth was just below the sand underneath my feet.
The monster hiding in plain sight
Is so well-rehearsed.
Knows just the words
To make him completely invisible.
Knows just the words to say
So that you see halos instead of horns.
