​Lies That We Tell

This song is by 3rd Alley and appears on the album Shiny Shady People (2008).

(Zack Walters)

Hyprocricy pays in ample wages
And honesty screws you on a thousand stages
So what you gonna do when, your train comes through
You better think twice before you throw your cards
Stretch a little truth you know it's not that hard
Guilt is a taste that you'll get used to

Oh the lies that we tell
Make us healthy when we're not well
Put us in heaven when we're in hell you know it's true
Oh the lies that we tell
Make us sparkle when we are stale
Make reality of a wishin' well you know it's true
You know it ...

Don't believe the hype 'cause cheaters prosper
Puff your resume just to join a roster
Watch the clueless, not get a clue
I'm not tryin' to condone behavior
But if you're soulless it could be your saviour
Suck your conscience in and roll on through

Oh the lies that we tell
Make us healthy when we're not well
Put us in heaven when we're in hell you know it's true
Oh the lies that we tell
Make us sparkle when we are stale
Make reality of a wishin' well you know it's true
You know it ...
