can we only tell the truth while masked? while hypnotized? unconscious?
"before too long then I was looking good, man, I was beautiful/i made believe that I could tell the truth to the whole wide world"
the truth is only make believe
the truth is always exactly what you think it is
the really real truth is more like the "ding an sich" - unknowable, by definition, ineffable, inescapable
are we capable of the truth, or incapable of it? incapacitated by it?
like I said, we always know exactly what the truth is
we never know
pure, uncut, the real deal, accept no substitutes - the uncanny connection between the truth and what is.
what is the truth? the truth is what is
