Take Off

Take off the chain of space and time

that we have created for ourselves

Take off the mask of friend and mate

that we have grown used to within ourselves

Take off the bind of trust and lust

that we have tortured ourselves

Take off the shield of faith and hope

that we have concocted for ourselves

Take off the cloak of deception and lies

that we have protected ourselves

Take it all away

from ourselves

in the space and time

we’ve been friends and mates

because of no trust and lust

we pretend to have faith and hope

when we’re made of deception and lies
