Insincere Song Lyrics, ARTIST

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Cats Can Fly's, "Lies Are Gonna Get You"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Lies are gonna get ya,
But the truth is gonna set you free.
Why They're Insincere:
Apparently, the band didn't worry about the lie in its own name! Incidentally, the whopping big cliche that "the truth will set you free" started with a saying of Jesus in the gospel of John. In the context, Jesus was addressing what he presented as a very specific truth, the truth of where salvation comes from, according to his teachings. He was not talking about truth in general. But those who have turned his saying into a runaway cliche present it out of context, as if it applied to truth in general. Ironically, among the prominent perpetrators of this runaway cliche are folks who couldn't hate Christianity more.

Annie (The Musical)'s, "Let's Go To The Movies"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Only happy endings
That's our recipe
Why They're Insincere:
Greta Garbo's character in "Camille" died, not to mention that the line contradicts with "And Greta Garbo is probably crying/While Robert Taylor is locked in her dying embrace". Grace Farrell wouldn't be sobbing in that theatre scene for nothing.
