lyrics

Did you think all the folks in your hometown were right
When they lip-served the legend you might become?
Did you think this here song would end up on your wall in no time
Dressed in glass, chrome and platinum?
Did you think this would net you the girl of your dreams?
Did you think this would make you a zillionaire?
Tell me, big man, how's all that shit worked out so far?
Dozen years and does anyone care 'bout it now?
Don't answer now
We'd better take this up again some other time
Because the next words out your mouth
Will be a lie
A lie
A lie

Watch in horror as all your old bandmates and pals
Nest and spawn in their parents' suburbia
Check your watch by the reddening sun
As it sets on the only ones who've ever heard of ya
Time to water it down, dumb it down, dumb it down
Take a coward's piss all over everything
Do you care what some shit blogger says?
Do you care what 14-year-olds think about anything now?
Don't answer now
We'd better take this up again some other time
Because the next words out your mouth
Will be a lie
A lie
A lie

Did you think this would net you the girl of your dreams?
Did you think this would make you a zillionaire?
Tell me, big man, how's all that shit worked out so far?
Dozen years and doesn't anyone even care?
Yeah I know we're both wrong, but you're also a dick
So I'm finding it hard to go quietly
You can lie to your family, your friends and yourself all you want
But don't you fuckin lie to me now
Don't answer now
We'd better take this up again some other time
Because the next words out your mouth
Will be a lie, a lie
A lie, a lie
A lie, a lie
A lie.
