"Telling Lies" as written by and David Bowie....
Telling lies

Gorgeous girls are bound to meet
To talk of stars and kings and feet
Through the chromosomes of space and time
Me I'm fast like bad infection
Gasping for my resurrection
Swear to me in times of war and stress

Telling lies
Telling lies
Telling lies
Telling lies

Telling lies
(Ooh ah visionary ooh ah visionary)
Telling lies
(Feels like something's gonna happen this year)
(Oh oh oh oh)
Telling lies
(Ooh ah visionary ooh ah visionary)
Telling lies
(Feels like something's gonna happen this year)
(Oh oh oh oh)

Telling lies

Shadow falls in shrinking smiles
See me poised at the happy games
Standing in the mouth of all that's pure
Come straggling in your tattered remnants
You come to me with tears and blame, I'm your future
Ask tomorrow, I am the end

Telling lies
Telling lies
Telling lies
Telling lies

Telling lies
(Ooh ah visionary ooh ah visionary)
Telling lies
(Feels like something's gonna happen this year)
(Oh oh oh oh)
Telling lies
(Ooh ah visionary ooh ah visionary)
Telling lies
(Feels like something's gonna happen this year)
(Oh oh oh oh)

Telling lies
Telling lies

Ooh ah oh
Ooh ah oh
Ooh ah oh
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
(Oh oh oh oh)
Oh ah
(Telling lies)
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
(Oh oh oh oh)
Oh ah
(Telling lies)
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
(Oh oh oh oh)
Oh ah
(Telling lies)
Oh ah
Oh ah
(Telling lies)
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Oh ah
(Telling lies)

    General CommentThe line "stars and kings and feet"... WOW. Extra terra, lords of terra, terra firma.

    And girls will talk...

    Basically comes down to the nature of lies being a potent lighthouse for lost ships. People will do anything if you sell them a lie that demands their complicity in diminishing some embodiment of the fear of death. Watch those BBC documentaries "The Power Of Nightmares" and "Century of the Self" about the long-coming payoff for building up a new threat for the inevitable post-Cold War climate... one the Neocons felt the face of should be a brown face with a turban. SO it was all in play before 9-11 and Iraq. But it's always played out the same way: bangs the drums of war with lies perfuming the air to get your body count up to act out this theater of war ("happy games" in the song).

    I'm not one to complain about this tired ass "W" topic. It just came up. Sorry. Now, on to the depression Obama has to fix... and without war (because the critics will have you believe the New Deal didn't actually fix it, WW2 fixed it... and the last 50 years is now coming home after going around the world. No more standing on the backs of the rest of the world's cheap laborers so we can see beyond our means... we're in the muck and it'll only be a little time before we're hunched down like the rest of them warranting pay at their level... it's part of the plan. Someone had to be "on top" for the world can only gain altitude with a tractable mountain (the US). Now we'll have two, India and China, a true two-party system, and we get to be the King and Queen's servant like the rest of table-flat-Europe, shriveling-Arabia, lazy-lonely-Sudamerica, and "the-longest-trailer-park-in-the-world"-Russia).
