It's A Lie
c 2014 Greg Lambert

Do what you want and you'll be happy
You can stake your claim on any deed
Live your life the way that suits you
Have all you want and more than you need

You can always trust your feelings
After all, they've gotten you this far
Truth is yours to interpret
Does the truth really know just who you are?

It's a lie
It's a lie from hell
You can trust your feelings
And all will be well

It's a lie
Sometimes it's hard to tell
Truth from dime-store fiction
Straight from the pit of hell

Some would trade a plan for the ages
Flawless in design
For these utterly outrageous
Lies and lullabies of our time

Rules are fine for common people
But the laws of nature bow to you
You are free and unaccountable
For what you say and do


You can please yourself without assistance
You can have your cake and eat it too
Life is your buffet with no restrictions
All you care to eat and say and do

There really isn't any Heaven
This life is it so live it well
You can redesign your existence
There's no such thing as hell

I love this song and the singer is great

Well there was Elijah, Elisha, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and then there's this guy, a modern day prophet proclaiming the truth without holding anything back. Exposing the lies of this world in such a creative way! This is one of the best songs I have heard on BJ in a long time. Every word is a sword. One that cuts between the soul and the spirit. The question is: Is anyone listening? Great guitar work (both of them). Vocal is perfect. I like the way you double-paired the verses, then sang the chorus. Excellent writing! Fantastic performance!

Guitar and raspy vocals got me right away.
Dime-store fiction is a nice line. lies and lullabies also
the tone and tempo come across as wisdom. The guitar work is pretty nice.
I may not, personally agree with the hook, but it does grab you. I dont think I agree with the message, but it does come across as words wanting to be spoken.
