The heart believes in things the mind denies.
No matter how strong the pain, no matter how harsh the lies.

When anger leads the battle’s rage,
It’s only building a confining cage.
To trap the truth behind steel bars.
No ground is gained, just deeper scars.

Long after the final shot sounds,
Silence covers the battle grounds.
The smoke clears and the confusion ends,
When silent words the buried truth lends,

To those who ended the war started by rumors and lies,
And to those that try to stop the heart in believing what the mind denies.

(1991)
