This Life is a Lie

Cristopher Columbus never discovered America,

French fries weren't made in France.

Marie Antoinette never gave anyone cake,

And the Chinese didn't make fortune cookies.

 

You tell me I can be whatever I want,

But that's just a lie.

I can't be a mapmaker, NASA astronaut, or

A member of the Swiss Army (Because it doesn't exist.)

 

You also tell me that girls can't be

President of the United States.

I think of your lies as I

take my oath of office.

 

This life is a lie,

But one day we'll find the truth.

You and I,

We'll find the truth.
