"Connections Are More Dangerous Than Lies" as written by and Kris Roe....
Electric windmill skyline
The cracking soil beneath my feet
It's pearls drenched with lust
This empty bed, the sweat soaked sheets
It's like they empty out the ocean
Bodies mending this scorched earth
It's like they empty out the ocean
Bodies mending this scorched earth
So call me on your long walks home
Where drunken voices bleed into one

If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are

I will to you the smell of burning leaves
Rusted windchimes and the feverish glow of fireflies
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers
So call me on your long walks home
Where drunken voices bleed into one

If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are

We awoke on your cluttered bed
To the schoolchildren below
Our teeming hearts
Habitual words are effortlessly flung
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers
We were such terrible liars
We were such passionate lovers
(Call me on your long walks home
Where drunken voices bleed into one)

If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
Stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are
Stay where you are
If you're not in love, stay where you are

    General CommentI think the chorus is more of a message to anyone listening, telling them not to get into this situation.

    General Commentyeah i agree with eltroy, he seems to be writing about his failed marriage here and the chorus is definitely a message to the listeners. The whole terrible liar and passionate lover thing is more than likely him talking to his ex wife.

    General CommentThe more i listened to this song was more like a question. "Habitual words are effortlessly false" like he wants her to move in with him and if her feelings don't match his then she should just stay where she is at her place hence the long walks home...

    General Commenti think this girl is cheating on him. she calls to tell him she won't be home where she's drunk and going home with someone else. and when he says "if you're not in love, stay where you are," he only wants her back if she truly wants him. he doesn't want to waste time and love on someone who doesn't love him back.
    i love at the end when he repeats over and over "we were such terrible liars, we were such passionate lovers."
    oh how the heart and head conflict

    General CommentFrom my personal experiences, I see this song as being with he is with a girl that is cheating on a current boyfriend with him. He wants her to leave her boyfriend for him, but only if she loves him and not just for the hell of it (hence the 'If you're not in love stay where you are'). Also, it could be that everyone around them except her boyfriend knows simply from the way they act together (We were such terrible liars, we were such passionate lovers). I can easily see it being the other way around too, this is just the way that I see it relating to me.

    General Commentits about two people that used to care for each other. having unemotional cdrunk casual sex.

    they used to care for each other, they dont anymore. they just say they do just so they wont feel bad about getting it on.

    so he makes sure she doesnt have any real feelings for him ("if youre not in love..") once he knows that shs's not in lvoe, he feels ok to pick her up ("stay where you are") and get his freaky deaky on.
