L.I.E.


Album: Pink Elephant

1st Verse

Talkin’ with speed, making the most of it
He’s makin’ real money on the dash
Selling hot air written on paper,
They buy it quick, yes they buy it fast.
And at the close of the day
He takes the L.I.E
Back to his life with his wife and kids,
They are living the American dream

Chorus

Long island expressway
Takes him to a place of make believe
Over the bridge to live with peter pan
I guess that’s where he wants to be
Long island expressway
If it’s good for you than it’s good for me
All the way to never, never land
I guess that’s where he wants to be

2nd Verse

He puts the kids to bed then makes love to his wife
By midnight, he’s sweating bad
‘Cos all the money’s waiting in Switerland
So’s a woman in the South of France
Tossing and turnin’ til his wife is spoonin’ him,
He tries to keep the worry down
‘Cos the note he found on the front lawn
Tells him his secret is out (ooooh, whoo)

Chorus

Bridge

Honesty is the best policy
For so long he’s lived in secrecy
‘Cos of every little lie he’s told
Gains another gray making him old
When he looks at his friends and family
He knows the actor is what he sees
Keeping the cancer inside to grow
He’s worried more about the movie show

And at the close of the day, he takes the L.I.E
Back to his life with his wife and kids
They are living the American dream

Long island expressway,
Long island expressway
Vamp out
