Trees that are purple, a sky that’s green
Could you believe in things that are only dreamt but never seen?
There are lies that are little, lies that are big.
Lies that define the style of life that we live.
Rats the size of mountains, elephants that fly.
Does any politician tell the truth or do they all always lie?
Are you pragmatic, pulling a face and adding a sigh?
Or are you a realist and hide behind that alibi?
Idealism, now there is a word!
A state of mind to live in, but perfection never heard!
Do you recognise the truth but hide from it and say,
“I’ve got no time for honesty, I’m floating on a cloud all day?”
