The truth is…

The truth is that I don’t know anything
I’m flying by the seat of my pants
I’m talking out of my ass
I know that I don’t know much

The truth is that I act brave when I’m not
My heart thumps hard but you don’t know it
My flight instinct kicks in but I repress it
My muscles quiver and shake but I stay calm

The truth is that you don’t know anything
Your advice was true for you
Your advice was a limited time offer
Your experience has no bearing on shit

The truth is that the truth isn’t true
The lie is more true than that
The paradox obscures answers it holds
The truth is a lie wrapped in truth wrapped in a lie
