"Keep on Lying" as written by and Kevin Parker....
All I give are little clues
Maybe one day I'll get through
There is nothing I can do
I'll just keep on lying to you

I only need to say its true
Your poor little heart already knew
But there is nothing you can do
I'll just keep on lying to you

Should my cover ever blow
Would you ever let it go?
There is something you should know
But hell if I'd ever let it show

So here I am, trying to be strong
It was noon, now my shadow's long
I guess I'll go and tell you just as soon as I
Get to the end of this song
To the end of this song, to the end of this song
To the end of this song, to the end of this song

The curse has won again
Soon I'll be alone
Take all you can
But please understand
It never really was love

All I give are little clues
Maybe one day I'll get through
But there is nothing you can do
I'll just keep on lying to you

    My Interpretationi see this song through the perspective of someone who also has a lying problem. he is genuinely invested in this relationship but cant keep himself from lying, and is self-sabotaging himself in the process even though he means well.

    i dont see "falling apart" as the relationship but as a self-analysis... kinda like im falling apart telling all these lies but now that i have told them i have to hold them up and so im going to keep lying... the never-ending hole that lies create.

    there's something the lyricist is hiding and its more than just relationship doubts.. deep trauma that he doesnt want to fully disclose but just give "little clues" and hope the recipient understands. and she doesnt and he keeps lying to cover up the initial embarassment and ugliness that comes from initially bringing it up.

    i dunno thats what i get from it. its less about the direct relationship between the lyricist and his romantic counterpart but more about his own personal demons that he tries to hint at but cant fully bring up to his counterpart and it kinda kills him inside so he keeps on lying
