"So What I Lied" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore, Antonina Armato and Timothy James Price....
The window's cracked, I'm looking out
I see her and I'm filled with doubt
I don't know if this parking place
Is just another empty space
Words I've said aren't coming true
I don't know if it's me or you
This promise is too hard to keep
I have to speak

So what, I lied
But the truth would've been suicide
Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short
Don't blame me for not being subservient to others' needs
I'm at the point where honesty just doesn't fucking work for me

I did my best to try and be
A mirror of society
But we both know the mirror's cracked
And everybody's in the act
Faking what they cannot feel
Hoping they can make it real
Reality is killing me

So what, I lied
But the truth would've been suicide
Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short
Don't blame me for not being subservient to others' needs
I'm at the point where honesty just doesn't fucking work for me

Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short

Erect a life I'll never see
I'll stand back from the scenery
And laugh at all the other guys
Who never could escape in time
Stuck like flies on sticky tongues
Chewed up 'fore their life is done
I'm not here to compromise or apologize

So what, I lied
But the truth would've been suicide
Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short
Don't blame me for not being subservient to others' needs
I'm at the point where honesty just doesn't fucking work for me

Life-is too fucking short
It's too fucking short
It's too fucking short

    General Commentmuch better thanks for posting i tried to put these lyrics up but i couldnt figure out some of the lines. as for the song meaning i think its about a guy cheating or wanting to just get with alot of girls and lies to the girls to get away with it.

    Song MeaningIt seems like the guy just doesn't really want to be in a monogamous relationship even though that's what the girl wants. He wants to play the field & live it up rather than be 'tied down' to one person for the rest of his life. even though he tried to play the loving boyfriend role, it's not reality for him. that's what I'm getting from this song at least.

    "faking what they cannot feel
    hoping they can make it real"

    love this line :D

    General Commenti believe that this song means that he cheats jus because that's who he is.
    but he still feels bad about it, so he covers up.
    they try to make things work but realize that things jus don't work.
    it all ends bad because he couldn't jus give up himself and that's the way he wants it.
    i would kno, been there done that too many times.

    General CommentI think it's actually more of a tongue-in-cheek jab at the people who actually think this way in real life.

    "I see her and I'm filled with doubt"
    "Words I've said aren't coming true"
    "This promise is too hard to keep"
    Doesn't sound like a healthy individual to me, can any of this really be taken seriously?

    My OpinionI love this song for the hooks and off-speeds (whatever the terminology is in the music biz).

    The man is very deep. Complicated on the outside, simple and loving on the in. I think their videos say that.

    General CommentBasically this person isn't really for monogamy. He feels that his girl wants to be exclusive but his life is "too f*cking short!" hahah love this song.
