From the beginning we made our history myth,
our causes, the most noble, painting ourselves
as a race made by God for others to follow.
we will not hear more than the petty lies
even we no longer believe, but still insist
upon as catechism for our children.
We have no one to blame but ourselves,
these faces made by God for others to envy.
The world watches us trip over our lies,
myths we know as lies, yet insist on them
as gospel for our children, enslaving them
forever to the myth.
