A lie is black, the truth is white. 
A lie is wrong, the truth is right.
Then why frown at a lie for justice?
Why sneer at a truthful prejudice?

The truth scars, a lie wounds.
The truth avoids, a lie intrudes.

Would you rather, in this life,
Live in peace or rather strife.
Strife made by truth, peace made by lies.
Living as you listen to the echoes of cries.

Would you rather, in this life,
Die with a smile or laugh with a knife,
Though how can you tell, that the weapon was held by a lie,
With what can you tell, that the truth would always comply.

So we continue to live, never doubting the truth that holds a gun,
As we ignore the lie, that hurts none.

虚偽は黒く、
真実は白く.
虚偽は悪く、
真実は良く.

事実は痛めて、
偽言は負傷し.
事実は逃げて、
偽言は侵入し.

平和か混乱で生きるというのは、
それほど難しい問題か?
戦で作られた和か
時で作られた乱れか、
どちらを選ぶ.
それとも平等な苦しみを耐えるか.
子供がどこかで泣きながら.

微笑みで死ぬか
生きて狂うか?
さあ、どちらを選ぶ.

だがどう見て分かる?
嘘が刃を持つことを.

だがどう見て分かる?
真なる眼が狂わないことを.
