Balancing Act

There are those that say
All men are evil
There are those that say
All women are bitches
I would hazard a guess
Somewhere in the middle
There lies the truth

There are many believe
Their religion is righteous
Some have opinions
In direct opposition
Probably true to say
Somewhere in the middle
There lies the truth

There are those that think
All politicians are criminal
Then there's those that believe
That this cannot be so
In a twist of reality
Somewhere in the middle
There lies the truth

There are those that believe
That there press is unbalanced
On the opposite fence
Sit those in conspiracy
Plain for those that can see
Somewhere in the middle
There lies the truth

If the truth is not yours
Then all you believe is a lie
And you delude yourselves
All you believe is the truth
As you roam the extremes
Alone in the middle
The truth lies waiting
