"String Of Lies" as written by George Tutuska, Robbie Takac and John Rzeznik....
I've got no politics, no influential friend or two
I've got ideas, but it's nothin' I picked up at school
I might be running, but I'm never running back to you

And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie

I had to wait so long that weeks and months that passed me by
You've got no power and my situation don't apply
You ask me how I am, I lie and say I'm doing fine

And with your sugar-sweetend alibis, there was a truth I never knew
And all the attitude you gave me, it's coming back to you

String of lies, it's always compromise with you
String of lies, you know there's nothing left to do
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you

And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie

String of lies, we always compromise for you
String of lies, you know there's nothing left to do
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you
String of lies, we always compromise for you

And here's a letter from the real world

    General Commentsomeone you need so much lying to you all the time. trying to make things better but in the end, hurting you so much. everything is one string of lies. "you've got no power", the relationship is over and they have no power to make you forget bad times anymore. to me, this song is about realising who someone really is
