Half Truths Breed

Half truths breed
Multiply faster than any truths
Rot the soul
Eat the flesh
Half truths
They sit upon the gossipers tongue
Despair, Broken Hearts
Follow in their trails, wakes drenched in blood
Half truths empty the mind
Paralyze the head
Half truths constrict
Venom to the soul
Marked are their slaves
Poverty of the heart, slime through the soul
Half truths
Sweep them, beat them, banish them
For truth shall prevail
Slow to breed; straight, true and strong the strain
Half truths bred defamed
They twist the soul and rot the flesh
