Talking helps the people see
Just who we are and what may be
Both good and bad will come one day
Revealed by what we have to say

And yet the lies may never end
We’ll search forever for that friend
Who speaks the truth and speaks it well
Who wants to help and not to sell

No more excuses, it’s too late
The worldly systems, far from great
What lies beneath?  Who are we now?
Which truths will be revealed, and how?

Think on the happy times now lost
Pursuit of dreams will have its cost
And talk with friends, for we may find
That talking helps to heal the blind
