How do you know what you can be
If you can't see where you are going?
What breaks the silence, misery
Can make you see where you belong.
It's a dangerous stage, but the show must go on.

Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Would you betray your soul?
Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Don't let your weakness show.
You just might be the last to know.

Freedom is such a loaded word,
So full of hurt and such aplomb.
Loneliness saunters in its breeze,
Like a disease it drags along.
The time of your life can't be had for a song.

Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Would you betray your soul?
Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Don't let your weakness show.
You just might be the last to know.

Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Would you betray your soul?
Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Don't let your weakness show.

Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Only the meek follow.
Why do you lie, why do you lie?
Trample the fear below.
You just might be the last to know.
