lyrics

Living a Lie

I know it’s not easy
Your entire reality
Is falling apart

I know what you go through
You know they will hurt you
You knew from the start

But in this place you feel alright
‘Cause everybody thinks alike
While following your guiding light
You’re blinded by your own denial

They won’t care how you feel
Or if your wounds will heal
They will leave a scar

You say you follow your ideal
To me it seems unreal
You used to be smart

But in this place you feel alright
‘Cause everybody thinks alike
While following your guiding light
You’re blinded by your own denial

But they’ll get mad at you for seeking the truth
‘Cause they’re living a lie
They’ll make you drink from the fountain of youth
As you’re watching your life pass you by

You’re hoping they will bring
The comfort you’re seeking
By joining their cult

You’ve outsourced your thinking
And decision making
Upon the occult

But I hope you will be alright
Beware if you choose to defy
They’ll fear you if you gain insight
About the lies they sanctify

And they’ll get mad at you for seeking the truth
‘Cause they’re living a lie
They’ll make you drink from the fountain of youth
As you’re watching your life pass you by

Living a lie is nothing but the worst kind of tragedy
A pinch of salt in everything provides the only remedy

I’m telling you this as a friend
Someone who will lend a hand
Someone who will understand
Not some kind of make-pretend

Like the crooks who claim to hold the truth
While they’re living a lie
They made you drink from their fountain of youth
As they were watching your life pass you by

And you know exactly who they are

You know exactly who they are…
