On The Lie

He burnt down the house one night
He had a loaded sixpack gun
He said that jesus christ was just like a cop
You know you never know when they’ll come
She said every day above ground
Was another dream come true
He said I’d hang and swap cliches all night
But I’m not in love with you

And I never got serious
Til everything went black
And I ain’t so curious
That I’m ever going back

On the lie

He said man you want to be Elvis
I said I ain’t dying face down
He said you’ve got to die facing up in the world
Cause there’s too many holes around
He asked what was wrong with me
He said I looked like a hollywood girl
I said that hollywood can fall into the ocean, man
Cause it’s the ugliest place in the whole wide world

And I never got serious
Til everything went black
And I ain’t so curious
That I’m ever going back

On the lie
