They Lied

“You can be anything you want -
you can do anything you want"
they said
they lied
"You can dream what you want to be -
dreams will always set you free"
they said
they lied

Did you ever stop to think
Did you ever wonder why
in the face of certain failure
some fool says.....

you can buy a book on astrology
to find your perfect match
I tried
they lied
Fixed me up with a psychopath
Eyes of coal and a miners laugh
I cried
By god she lied...

Did you ever stop to think?
Did you ever wonder why
in the face of certain failure
Some fool says

I wouldn't give it a second thought if I could understand
Which gods or demons have I displeased? -
My life won't go as planned I could be sitting in the Garden of Eden
Sipping from the cup of life
Sitting in the Garden of Eden

You can take a course on happiness
Learn to be self-aware
it's hard
But it's only fair
That you look yourself right in the eye
Say "this is me 'til the day I die
But I may
Well I just might have lied"

Did you ever stop to think?
Did you ever wonder why?
in the face of certain failure
Some fool says…

I wouldn't give it a second thought if I could understand
which gods or demons have I displeased? -
My life won't go as planned I could be sitting in the Garden of Eden
Sipping from the cup of life
Sitting in the Garden of Eden
