"Lies" as written by and Francis/frost Rossi....
Bound at every limb by my shackles of fear
Sealed with lies through so many tears
Lost from within, pursuing the end
I fight for the chance to be lied to again

You never were strong enough
You you never were good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

But through my tears breaks a blinding light
Birthing a dawn to this endless night
Arms outstretched, awaiting me
An open embrace upon a bleeding tree

Rest in me and I'll comfort you
I have lived and I died for you
Abide in me and I vow to you
I will never forsake you

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

    General CommentI think it took more energy for you to type out "(I don't want to have to keep typing it out) " then it would have if you typed the whole name of them.

    General CommentThis song isn't about a relationship. This song is about Jesus...

    "But through my tears breaks a blinding light"

    Jesus was often described that way in the Bible

    "Arms outstretched awaiting me"

    Again..Same as above..

    "An open embrace upon a bleeding tree"

    Bleeding tree = Cross Jesus was crucifed on

    "Rest in me and I'll comfort you
    I have lived and I died for you
    Abide in me and I vow to you
    I will never forsake you"

    Bruce from Living Sacrifice screams this part. All of these things were spoken by Jesus. If you know anything about Living Sacrifice, you know that Bruce isn't gonna scream along in a lovesong..

    General CommentAnother great Evan.(I don't want to have to keep typing it out) song. I think there is an especially great guitar piece in the chorus.
    Really...I can't get a very good idea of meaning from this song. I get the impression that someone is being lied to, and it's taking a toll on them, though.

    General CommentFind them on Kazaa

    I think this song talks about someone in a relationship thats really only 1 way. They love, but the love isnt returned by the other person. In all probability he should split, and not hurt himself more because of her but he cant leave because he loves her too much. So hes caught between hating her, and loving her, his heart fluttering at the sight of her and at the same time burning with anger...

    General CommentI see in this song many religious parallels. Some people get annoyed with these sorts of comments, but to each his own. "I have lived and I died for you.. I will never forsake you..I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger burning deep inside of me..But through my tears breaks a blinding light.." etc. I'm not trying to 'force' my religion on anyone, but it's what i see in this song...so bop bopb op
