Lyrics

It Was All Lies
By Carrie Ferguson and Garrett Sawyer

You and I ought to try a little harder
That’s what we always tell ourselves
Dress a little nicer, act a little smarter
Try to be someone else

We’ve been looking at the television
Lots of pretty plastic things to buy
All the happiness that we’ll be missing
If we don’t keep up with the other guys

But it was all lies, it was all lies
Why are we still believing it?
It was all lies, oh yeah

Everybody wants to be somebody
Everybody wants to get somewhere
Make a big splash, make a lot of money
Everyone wants to get their share

We’ve been listening to the politician
He says we’re gonna get it all for free
He blames our problems on the opposition
While winkin’ his corporate creeps

But it was all lies, it was all lies
Why are we still believing it?
It was all lies, oh yeah

Out in the ocean there’s a giant island
Made of metal and plastic stuff
But they tell us to keep buying
Cuz we will never be enough

I guess that this is not the best time to discuss it
It seems like we’re not in the mood

But it was all lies, it was all lies
Why are we still believing it?
But it was all lies, it was all lies
Why are we still believing it?
It was all lies, oh yeah

But it was all lies, it was all lies
Why are we still believing it?
But it was all lies, it was all lies
Why are we still believing it?
It was all lies, oh yeah
