General information

Written by: A. Lee and B. Moody

Lies is the ninth track from Evanescence's demo album, Origin.

Bruce Fitzhugh of Living Sacrifice provided the male vocals and Stephanie Pierce provided the female soprano-style backup vocals. Later, this song was remade with Amy and David's vocals with different lyrics.

This is one of Evanescence's shortest titles of all their songs, sharing this with Sick.

Lies was aired on the radio in the summer of 2000, before Origin was released[1]. The Blitz trasmission, KABF 88.3 FM, had already aired several Evanescence songs.

Lyrics

Origin version

Bound at every limb by my shackles of fear
Sealed with lies through so many tears
Lost from within, pursuing the end
I fight for the chance to be lied to again

You will never be strong enough
You will never be good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

But through my tears breaks a blinding light
Birthing a dawn to this endless night
Arms outstretched, awaiting me
An open embrace upon a bleeding tree

Rest in me and I'll comfort you
I have lived and I died for you
Abide in me and I vow to you
I will never forsake you

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

Rest in me, I'll comfort you
I have lived and died for you
Abide in me, I vow to you
I will never forsake you

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

Post-Origin demo

Bind [Bind] my limbs with fear [fear]
Choke me with tears [tears]
I won't die for you

You've [you've] been here before [before]
And come back for more [more]
But not this time

You will never be strong enough
You will never be good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
I should have known all along it was all a lie
I should have known it was all a lie

Now [now] I know the truth [truth]
I'm through fearing you [you]
And I am free

You will never be strong enough
You will never be good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
I should have known all along it was all a lie [lie]
I should have known it was all a lie

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
I should have known all along it was all a lie [lie]

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
[I should have known] I should have known it was all a lie
I should have known it was all a lie

Notes

  1. In a post on EvBoard (now deleted), Amy has stated that she would like fans to refer to this "Lies" version as "Lies (Post-Origin demo)" rather than "Lies (Remix)" or "Lies (Remake)".
