The Lyrics

Must be getting early
the meetings running late
Press release by Numbers
Looks so phony
Scandal breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glareDraw the curtains, I don't care
'Cause it's all right

I will just lie
I will just lie
I will just lie
I will survive

I see the story just got out
She said her piece thru me out
Yes I got the gist of it
But it's all right
Sorry that she feels that way
The only thing there is to say
Every affair I have got a shade of grey

I will just lie
I will just lie
I will just lie
I will survive

It's a lesson to me
The money and the press and the C's
The music we all must face
To save to a little face

It's a lesson to me
The wife and the kids give me the Freeze
The cuts we all think of
To try to buy a little love

I know the state is in arrears
The budget has not been black in years
It's even worse than it appears
But it's all right
The truth is like tasting kerosene
My kid can't read at seventeen
The words I taught are all obscene
But it's all right

I will tell lies
I will tell lies
I will survive

The truth gives my image fits
There's really nothing much to it
Lie through your teeth and spit 'Cause it's all right!

Oh well, a shade of grey
Kind of suits me anyway
That was all I had to say
And it's all right

I will just lie
I will just lie
I will just lie
I will survive


We will just lie
We will just lie
We will just lie
We will survive
