Kit Kelen #554 - they're lying



554
they're lying

here's the sky fallen to pieces
believe me
they're lying
say nothing to worry
believe me, they're lying again

the dinosaur stem has no truth to tell
it's to our immediate advantage

through whose teeth?
like a lump of coal can't speak

we are just a few
make no difference
the flat world goes on forever
it hasn't been discovered yet

believe me
they're lying
say nothing to worry
believe me, they're lying again

we're lying to ourselves again

like oil will never ask, accuse
but flows to flame
we worship

can you see through smoke?

snakes fork tongue, but won't do this
they make intentions clear

where's fear?

is it the old lie?
is it the new?
the tragedy or farce?

war!
that's what a lie's worth
and honour and then pride

we follow the lie to the promise
it comes with many miracles
and angels decked around
it's all in praise of us
we're chuffed

this will all cost dearly

believe me
they're lying
say nothing to worry
believe me, they're lying again

they fly a lie
and all salute

isn't truth the tune we know?
have they not orchestrated?

are there devils make them do it?
don't they know a fact from...

if only we carry that stone to the top
if only we reach there'll be grapes

the whistle blown dissolves to air
they're pocketing the proceeds

believe me
they're lying
say nothing to worry
believe me, they're lying again

you won't see the instances of past now

wherever we pretend belief
that's where they take us down

we indulge denial as well
we don't believe the paw in our pocket
we don't believe it's poison we drink

in the cannon's maw
keep the faith
and what's that worth?
when the biggest thing's the lie

we trust in the invisible
there isn't a choice there

but some hands clench to brave a way
and some hold empty air

believe me
they're lying
say nothing to worry
believe me, they're lying again

we lie to get on with
to haul up the hours
have a calendar pass

will there be a future in that?

the dinosaur stem has no truth to tell
but it's to our advantage

we believe in the fire
so the smoke must say

we are just a few
make no difference

that world without end
we are yet to discover
is certain to be quite flat

  1. we're flat
    because
    it covers
    every surface
    the heart jumps
    from place to place
    her oiled body
    panther black
    and me like
    a banana tree
    now I guess
    that might
    just
    cover
    it
