You can build a whole idea, a whole system of logic
Based on stories you’ve been told.
A whole theology.
A whole religion.
An idea about a person.
A frame of reference, an ethic, an understanding between people.
But remove one stone—
One misstep, mistake, misunderstanding,
One misleading piece–a lie, a half-truth, something left out…
And the whole thing comes down.
How many temples do we rebuild?
