He burnt down the house one night
He had a loaded six-pack gun
He said that Jesus Christ was just like a cop
You know, you never know when they'll come
She said every day above ground
Was another dream come true
He said I'd hang and swap clichĐšs all night
But I'm not in love with you


And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back


On the lie
On the lie
On the lie
On the lie


He said, man, you want to be Elvis
I said I ain't dying face down
He said you've got to die facing up in the world
'Cause there's too many holes around
He asked what was wrong with me
He said I looked like a Hollywood girl
I said that Hollywood can fall into the ocean, man
'Cause it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world


And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back


On the lie
On the lie
On the lie
On the lie


On the lie, he was
On the lie
On the lie, she was
On the lie
On the lie, he was
On the lie
It's all been a stinkin' lie
