"Your Life Is A Lie" as written by and Ben Goldwasser Andrew Vanwyngarden....
Here's the deal
Open your eyes
Your life is a lie
Don't say a word
I'll tell you why
You're living a lie
Your life is a lie
But you deny, you ever lied
Wondering why
Bury your life
Count your friends
On your hands
Now look again
They're not your friends
Hold your breath
Everyone left
No surprise
Living a lie

Tell your wife
This is your life
Your life is a lie
This is your wife
Now she knows, she understands
Her life is a lie
Nobody wins
Try not to cry
You'll survive
On your own

Lessons in life
Your life is a lie
Now there's no time
Wondering why
Where in the world
Is that girl?
He knows she's alright
To live a life
Waiting to die
Not knowing that
Your life is a lie
Wondering why
Nobody writes
Hollow inside
Periods in light
Fire and ice
Your life is a lie
Your life is a lie
Your life is a lie
Your life is a lie
On your own
One more time
Your life is a lie

    General CommentThis is no political song. No or is it simple. It's about being human. All your goals and dreams aren't met and bad shit keeps happening but you put on a facade that everything is OK so you don't bum everyone out. The friends you thought you could count turns out are not your friends. Your wife has free will and could leave any second. Nobody is anybody's friend. Your on your own. It's MGMT's way of saying everyone looks happy but they aren't. Being human can feel very alone sometimes, but this song reminds us that we're all in the same boat. Your life is a lie.
