The Big Lie (remix)
The Big Lie
'Round a blind corner it catches you from behind
rumors of an apathetic warning sign
a Siren's whisper on an ocean breeze
Just a gentle nudge that changes your mind
well its alright, alright, alright, alright, alright,
it's alright jus' this one more time

Well that's the game that we play,
over and over with a Cheshire smile
Living life frame by frame
finding reasons at the end of the day
to justify
Well that's the Big Lie

On the next corner the gutter is choking on vomit and spit
from the jaws and the maws of the innocent
going on and about in their everyday lives
And if a casual tongue is the poet's tool of his jargon and rhyme,
then how can the common man feed the fires
of our collective social and moral decline

Well that's the way so they say
over and over with a Cheshire smile
Riding life wave by wave
holding on 'til the end of the day
then wondering why??
Well that's the Big Lie
that's the Big Lie

now stars jus'seem to fade away
in the amber glow of the morning's light
like when dreams fall into the emptiness
of the pocket of our bitter discontent
we somehow find a way to rationalize
well that's the Big Lie

Under the rug lies the dirt and the mud of a younger man's life,
in the covert land of the quiet and shy,
he can only perceive what's in his father's eyes
Claiming the truth he shrieks at the source of his eternal lament
finding only the shadow of his silhouette
... now they're playing at Cowboys and Indians

That's the way, the blind mans says,
over and over with a Cheshire smile
Finding someone else to blame
gives 'em reason at the end of the day
to justify
But that the Big Lie That's the Big Lie
