lost in our delusions – v4

we believe our own lie
spoken so often
lost in our delusions
in repetition, repeating
the lies we have told one another
sure that we are infinitely better
than all the other nations
but the metrics tell other things
the measures of inequality
where we are lacking
falling behind many others
no better than the rest
lost in our delusions
our propaganda machine
believing our own lies
to rise above the truth
lost, complacent
sure that we are great
