"Born to Lie" as written by Mark Hockings and Richard James Silverthorn....
You’re a bitch
You’re a queen
You behave
Indestructible
Black heart
So smart
Play the part
You get the best of them

You’re strange
Can’t Change
Next page
So excitable
You’re hard
In charge
In bed
So invitable

Why is it that you were born to lie?
It’s a game to you
Why is it that you’re just borderline insane?
It’s true
You pull them in
You kick them out
You leave a trail of destruction around
Why is it that you were born to lie?
Just a game to you

You’re mad
So bad
You run
With the best of them
Your kind
So refined
they’re blind
Make the most of them

It’s a game (like chess)
Like fame (what’s best?)
It’s a skill (cheap thrill)
Always watching you
You tease
You please
They seize
They hold a flame to you

Why is it that you were born to lie?
It’s a game to you
Why is it that you’re just borderline insane?
It’s true
You pull them in
You kick them out
You leave a trail of destruction around
Why is it that you were born to lie?
Just a game to you

You can’t be told, what can’t be said
The road to loneliness is knowing when to go to bed

(all you touch unfolds)

Why is it that you were born to lie?
It’s a game to you
Why is it that you’re just borderline insane?
It’s true
You pull them in
You kick them out
You leave a trail of destruction around
Why is it that you were born to lie?
Just a game to you

    General CommentI would think that most of us knew this person, or perhaps we WERE that person years ago and have matured over the years. It could be a woman, it could be a man. They would require center stage no matter what the situation.

    On the outside, this person was attractive, desirable, a figurative unicorn... but then things would start to unravel and you got to the heart of their personality and found out it was all done for attention and without any regard for the other person.

    A narcissistic sociopath.
