Nothing Is As Scary As The Untrue – Written Thursday 23rd February 1995 (Aged 19)

Nothing Is As Scary As The Untrue

nothing is as scary as the untrue
untrue through a window of lies
i think i am looking at you
seeking out just what we all need
i stumble through everything
as i slowly bleed
i do not know what is best
so i watch the wheels of death
and then i watch you
and it is all untrue
listening to the never never world
with your face alight
people grow old
with a faced scared so white
suddenly you are facing hollow trees
so you run, but never too far
you can see the forest
but only the bark
nothing is as scary as being in the dark
getting caught out
when you had almost made it
in the world we know nothing about
nothing is going to mean anything
if you do not spend your life –
doing something
when it comes to the time to give it all up
it will be good to have anything




James Garratt – Thursday 23rd February 1995
