    "The Lie" Lyrics

    Thirty odd years before
    On some grass covered wasteland
    A boy is observed on his own
    Who is watching and playing

    He's just made a pact with himself
    If that rabbit over there
    Doesn't go down yonder hole
    Let the ground beneath him disappear

    And it runs on past
    Fades away in the distance
    But the earth doesn't move
    Nobody thought that it would

    He makes bets and pledges
    Again and again
    Sometimes he wins
    Sometimes he loses no matter

    Some might call him stupid
    To tempt fate in this way
    But he really does believe in it
    Each time the rules are made

    There he goes again
    If I never fall for a lady
    Then let me be famous
    Let me be wise

    Now this one I like
    It has a different ring
    Instead of something trivial
    That's a serious undertaking

    So I say to you
    This time, I think I'll act
    I'll be a witness to this contract
    I'll settle everything

    So if you should ever fall in love
    You'll not only not be wise
    You'll lose your memory and most of your mind
    And I've never been known to lie

    And now, he's not really sure
    If he truly heard someone
    So what if he did, he thinks
    For nothing will happen

    Though he seems to shrug it off
    He won't play that game again
    Forever morning after the night before
    When even one drop would cause pain

    And the years go by
    The incident is all but forgotten by one
    But the other who lives it
    Remembers that innocent fun
