The Big Lie



All the things you´ve heard are... big lies
All the things you´ve learned are... big lies
All your parents told you... big lies
All the teachers told you... big lies

All the things you know
Are only things you've heard
And all these things
Are just stories

Stop believing these old stories and lies
Deep in yourself you know
It was just a game
A little game...

(Chorus:)

"You think you see objects
You think you see the reality
That you see the clear truth
But what you really perceive
Is the illusion of a dream
Is a big lie"

(Chorus II:)

"So
All the people are shitting you!
All your senses are shitting you!
All your friends are shitting you!"

You think this is a world of objects
You think this is the only reality
But
This is just a world of description

You think your furniture is solid
You think your bed is solid
You think your body is solid
But
This is not true
Because
You are just a consciousness
Caught in a glowing ball
A lonely sparkle
In a big dark room

(Chorus:)

"You think you see objects
You think you see the reality
That you can see the truth
But what you really perceive
Is the illusion of a dream
Is a big lie"

You see but you don't see
You hear but you don't hear
You feel but you don't feel
And you ever ask yourself:
True or false? True or false?
In a big dark room

(Chorus II:)

So
All the people are shitting you
All your senses are shitting you
All your friends are shitting you
