We can't all get them right

but we can all get them wrong

and cover up with them

then sing our sad song.

We can hide them in shadows

for they grow fast in the dusk

then they turn to jump

and they quickly eat us.

Big old lies eats us alive

and little lies do well

For both of them will drive

us all straight to hell.

How do other people find them

when we hide them in the dark

Does a friend tell on us

is there some kind of mark.

Do they show up like freckles

or a new tattoo on our skin

We thought we had them buried

but they are running around again.

Big old lies eats us alive

and little lies do well

For both of them will drive

us all straight to hell.

We can't all get them right

but we can all get them wrong

and cover up with them

then sing our sad song.
