"Lies" as written by and Francis/frost Rossi....
Feels like I'm covered in lies
So turn off the light, I'm closing my eyes
Flying back, ages ago
Curtain is down and I'm ready to go
Back to the day when I looken into your eyes
Straight to your heart, when I knew
You've been telling me lies

Even the day when we met
I'll always recall with the deepest regret
Tell me what keeps you awake:
Talk of the angel or soul of the snake?
How can you live in your shadow from within
Hiding away from the light in the river of sin?

Lies, neverinding lies, I see it in your eyes
Did you stop believing ?
Lies always cold as ice, even heaven cries
For you, but not forgiving
Lies, the way to paradise you're gonna pay the price
On the field of growing lies
Neverending lies need a sacrifice,
You're the one who's going down

Dealing with you on my own
Loosing my faith so I have to be strong
Crossing the sea of mistrust while
Looking for gold which you covered with dust

    My InterpretationThis song is definitely a favourite of mine by Royal Hunt. I've realised that they use quite a lot of religious metaphors in their lyrics--but that doesn't necessarily mean the meaning in itself is religious.

    I don't know why, but when I read these lyrics, it actually makes me think that he's speaking of a more motherly figure than a lover. "Even the day when we met, I'll always recall with the deepest regret," somehow that shows more of a regret from a mother's point of view, maybe regretting that she has had a child, more than a lovers/religious point of view. Maybe the figure wasn't loving, and kept her child locked away and lied to them about the truth of the world around them. And this DOES go back to religion, as some people are made by their parents to become part of something without choice.

    I don't KNOW for sure what the song is about, but I just like to think it's something deeper than what it's making out to be. :) It's just a suggestion.
