"Lie On Lie" as written by Michael Duff, Trace Ritter, Orlando Sims and Toby Scarbrough....
Any town, any day, the separation's real
And I find it is based on nothing
Passed from father to son
Mothers to their girls enough
And I fall once again from my own ideals
And I fight back the fear of something
That I don't understand
But learned when I was young
And I know that it's strange
I know that it's strange

And I think it will take us more than legislation
I think it will take us more than filling graves
And I say that you can not force appreciation
Lie on lie

I will not run away from the battle now
If it seems that's the way I'm fighting
I will just pass away the pieces of my life
'cause I know that it's right, I know that it's right

And I think it will take us more than legislation
I think it will take us more than filling graves
And I say that you can not force appreciation
Lie on lie

And I think it will take us more than legislation
I think it will take us more than filling graves
And I say that you can not force appreciation
Lie on lie
And I think it will take us more than legislation
I think it will take us more than filling graves
And I say that you can not force appreciation
Lie on lie
Lie on lie

    My InterpretationThe first verse is about racial / religious / or other types of separation that are based upon the beliefs of the individual groups.

    Similarly, "passed from father to son, mothers to their girls" could be about gender lines, and the acceptance of inequality passed on by each generation.

    The chorus is simple: Laws and wars will not solve the issues. It will take time and mutual respect of one another's beliefs to make change happen.

    The second verse is a bit more esoteric. It could be that the author is stating that he will not stop fighting for change, even if his fight is passive, instead of aggressive.
