Yesterday’s truth
No longer embrace
Situation – face it
There’s no escape from

Verse 1
Used to believe
Soul is fallen
Compromised now
Human birth born
Life goal prescribed
Sole objective

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Choice surrender
Mentor defer
Which direction
Never question
Absolute see
Divine vision
No own opinion

Yesterday’s truth … looking back I see lies, or at least complex ideas simplified to the point of untruth. Were they white lies, necessary, even essential to progress at the time, dictated by limited understanding capacity of the audience? Maybe they were, but they set the stage for future struggle – a time when those untruths became apparent, and continued progress therefore required their rejection … resulting in isolation from the community of followers.

The realisation that everything is perfect now — or is this conviction just tomorrow’s yesterday’s truth?
