Dance Little Liar

  • I heard the truth was built to bend
    A mechanism to suspend the guilt
    Is what you are requiring still
    You've got to dance little liar

    Just like those fibbs that pop and fizz
    And you'll be forced to take that awful quiz
    And you're bound to trip
    And she'll detect the fiction on
    Your lips and dig a contradiction up

    And the clean coming will hurt
    And you can never get it spotless
    When there's dirt beneath the dirt
    The liar take a lot less time

    I'm sure it's clear and plain to me
    Its not an alibi you need just yet
    Oh no it's something for those beads of sweat
    Yes that we'll get you back to normal

    And after you have dabbed the patch you'll grieve
    And then proceed to scratch the varnish off
    That newly added calmness
    So as not to raise any alarms too soon

    And the clean coming will hurt
    And you can never get it spotless
    When there's dirt beneath the dirt

    The liar takes a lot less

    Time to decide on his saunter
    Have you got itchy bones
    And in all your time alone
    Can you hack your mind being riddled
    With the wrong memories

    And the clean coming will hurt
    And you can never get it spotless
    When there's dirt between the dirt Writer/s: ALEX TURNER
