about

This song is about a lady who exhibits a most disturbing disregard for veracity and a man who exhibits a most disturbing longing for said lady. Neither knows this song concerns them.

lyrics

Lying Lisa
Lying Lisa is gone
I know that you want her
I know what you feel is strong

I know that you want to play her pawn
I know that you want to try
But every word that her lips pass on
Eventually is a lie

Lying Lisa

You want to believe her
Want to believe it’s true
But the pretty deceiver
Will leave her tread marks on you

I know that you want to fill your sails
And float away in the sky
But the wind that she whispers never fails
It turns out to be a lie

Lying Lisa
Lying Lisa is gone
Lying Lisa
Lying Lisa is wrong

I know that you want to play her pawn
I know that you want to try
But every word her lips pass on
Eventually is a lie

Lying Lisa
Lying Lisa
