Your Life is a Lie

  • Here's the deal
    Open your eyes
    Your life is a lie
    Don't say a word
    I'll tell you why
    You're living a lie
    Your life is a lie
    But you deny, you ever lied
    Wondering why
    Bury your life
    Count your friends
    On your hands
    Now look again
    They're not your friends
    Hold your breath
    Everyone left
    No surprise
    Living a lie

    Tell your wife
    This is your life
    Your life is a lie
    This is your wife
    Now she knows, she understands
    Her life is a lie
    Nobody wins
    Try not to cry
    You'll survive
    On your own

    Lessons in life
    Your life is a lie
    Now there's no time
    Wondering why
    Where in the world
    Is that girl?
    He knows she's alright
    To live a life
    Waiting to die
    Not knowing that
    Your life is a lie
    Wondering why
    Nobody writes
    Hollow inside
    Periods in light
    Fire and ice
    Your life is a lie
    Your life is a lie
    Your life is a lie
    Your life is a lie
    On your own
    One more time
    Your life is a lie Writer/s: ANDREW WELLS VANWYNGARDEN, BENJAMIN NICHOLAS HUNER GOLDWASSER
