Lie, lie, lie...

The full moon is rising over dark water
And the fools below are picking up sticks.
And the man in the gallows lies permanently,
Waiting for the doctors to come back and tend to him.

The flat earth society is meeting here today,
Singing happy little lies,
And the bright ship humana is sailing far away
with grave determination,
And no destination.

Lie, lie, lie...

Yeah, nothing feels better than a spray of clean water
And the whistling wind on a calm summer night,
but you'd better believe that down in their quarters
The men are holding in for their dear lives.

The flat earth society is somewhere far away,
With their candlesticks and compasses,
And the bright ship humana is well on its way
With grave determination,
And no destination.

Lie, lie, lie, ad infinitum...
