To be real is to be true
And the truth cannot be moved
It’s above anything we believe
An anchor in fluid streams

There’s a root to every lie
Nurtured, it multiplies
And the illusion is strong
An emotion leads us on.

Twisted lies
Spread like wildfire
They meet their doom
At the feet of truth

Truth is a lion.

Strike the truth
Heedless of the danger
Rail away
‘Til  it roars

“The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.”

“What is absolutely true is always correct, everywhere, all the time, under any condition. An entity’s ability to discern these things is irrelevant to that state of truth.”

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,  and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
