Rollins Band - Weight - Liar lyrics[edit]

Watch the clip for 'Liar' on Henry Rollins's site

you think you're going to live your life alone
in darkness and seclusion... yeah, I know
you've been out there and tried to mix with those animals
and it just left you full of humiliated confusion
so you stagger back home and wait for nothing
but the solitary refinement of your room
spits you back onto the streets
and now you're desperate and in need of human contact
and then you meet me and your whole world changes
because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear
so you drop all you defenses, and you drop all your fear 
I'm perfect in every way
 'cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside
you feel so lucky
but your ego obscures reality that you never bothered to
wonder why things are going so well
you want to know why?

'CAUSE I'M A LIAR, YEAH, I'M A LIAR
I'LL RIP YOUR MIND UP, I'LL BURN YOUR SOUL
I'LL TURN YOU IN-TO ME, I'LL TURN YOU IN-TO ME,
'CAUSE I'M A LIAR, A LIAR, A LIAR, A LIAR

I'll hide behind a smile and understanding eyes
and I'll tell you things that you already know so you can say:
I REALLY IDENTIFY WITH YOU, SO MUCH!
and all the time that you're needing me 
is just the time that I'm bleeding you, don't you get it yet???
I'll come to you like an affliction
then I'll leave you like an addiction
you'll never forget me... YOU WANNA KNOW WHY? 

'CAUSE I'M A LIAR, YEAH, I'M A LIAR
I'LL TEAR YOUR MIND UP, I'LL BURN YOUR SOUL
I'LL TURN YOU IN-TO ME, I'LL TURN YOU IN-TO ME,
'CAUSE I'M A LIAR, A LIAR, A LIAR, A LIAR

I don't know why I feel the need to lie and cause you so much pain
maybe it's something inside, maybe it's something I can't explain
 'cause all I do is mess you up and lie to you
I'm a liar, ooh, I'm a liar

but if you'll give me another chance
I swear I'll never lie to you again
 'cause now I see the destructive power of a lie,
they're stronger than truth
I can't believe I ever hurt you, I swear I will never lie to you again
please, just give me more chance, I'll never lie to you again, no,
I swear, I will never tell a lie, I will neer tell a lie, no, no
HA HA HA HA HO HO HO HO! SUCKER! SUCKER! SUCKER!

I am a liar, yeah, I am a liar, yeah, I am a liar
I lie, I feel good, I am a liar, yeah
I lie I LIE I LIE I LIVE
 OHH, I lie, Yeah, I lie
I'm a liar, I lie, I like it, I feel good, I like it, and again
I like it again and I'll keep lying, 
I promise <laugher>
