Living The Lie

This song is by Dio and appears on the album Master of the Moon (2004).

When a million miles from nowhere, is still too close to home
You're with a hundred thousand people, and you still feel all alone
She was never in the circle, or the round would be a square
And the more she seemed to want it, the less they seemed to care

Sold out and no admission
Too late to buy
It's never who it's only why
She's living the lie
Living the lie

When you're on your way to somewhere, but the elevator falls
Do you look for stairs to heaven, or wander through the halls?
He was only dedicated, to the ones who make the law
But they burned with too much fire, and his heart was made of straw

No ticket, no admission
Too late to buy
It's always he and he knows why
He's living the lie
Living the lie

How bad do you want it?
How far will you go?

If you're looking at tomorrow, to forget about today
Then the past will be your future, and it's there you'll always stay
What about the pictures, that smile from magazines
The ultimate temptation, our new kings and all our queens

Such heat and too much pressure
Not worth the try
No more for them now it's I
And no more living the lie
Living the lie
Oh why
Live the lie
