No truth no lies

There is no truth, only perception, there are no lies, only deception
When you’re in doubt, nothing can be done
Believe in yourself, all can be won
Philosophers talk, around in circles, start where they finish and never resolved
There’s always a reason, but may not be an answer
Stay with me in the warm, don’t go out in the cold
Build up your hopes, be optimistic, positive thinking, jump over the hill
Stand up and be counted, self-promotion, if you won’t do it, no-one else will
In the best of all, possible worlds, it turns out all right, you get the girl
Cassandra was moaning, there in the corner, open the oyster, search for the pearl
Take the chances, offered to you, can’t all be winners, they’re very few
Stay on the bright side of the moon, but if you’ve got to leave, please come back soon

If you just sit there waiting for action, there'll be no reaction, the phone never rings
Your life’s in your hands, it’s up to you, it’s not what you want, it’s what you do
So my friends, that’s my little song, having a go is better than wrong
Take a risk, put up a fight, if you don’t try you can never be right
