Tony Banks
The Lie

Thirty odd years before

On some grass covered wasteland

A boy is observed on his own

Who is watching and playing



He's just made a pact with himself

If that rabbit over there

Doesn't go down yonder hole

Let the ground beneath him disappear



And it runs on past

Fades away in the distance

But the earth doesn't move

Nobody thought that it would



He makes bets and pledges

Again and again

Sometimes he wins

Sometimes he loses no matter



Some might call him stupid

To tempt fate in this way

But he really does believe in it

Each time the rules are made



There he goes again

If I never fall for a lady

Then let me be famous

Let me be wise



Now this one I like

It has a different ring

Instead of something trivial

That's a serious undertaking



So I say to you

This time, I think I'll act

I'll be a witness to this contract

I'll settle everything



So if you should ever fall in love

You'll not only not be wise

You'll lose your memory and most of your mind

And I've never been known to lie



And now, he's not really sure

If he truly heard someone

So what if he did, he thinks

For nothing will happen



Though he seems to shrug it off

He won't play that game again

Forever morning after the night before

When even one drop would cause pain



And the years go by

The incident is all but forgotten by one

But the other who lives it

Remembers that innocent fun


Mirror lyrics:

Remembers that innocent fun

But the other who lives it

The incident is all but forgotten by one

And the years go by



When even one drop would cause pain

Forever morning after the night before

He won't play that game again

Though he seems to shrug it off



For nothing will happen

So what if he did, he thinks

If he truly heard someone

And now, he's not really sure



And I've never been known to lie

You'll lose your memory and most of your mind

You'll not only not be wise

So if you should ever fall in love



I'll settle everything

I'll be a witness to this contract

This time, I think I'll act

So I say to you



That's a serious undertaking

Instead of something trivial

It has a different ring

Now this one I like



Let me be wise

Then let me be famous

If I never fall for a lady

There he goes again



Each time the rules are made

But he really does believe in it

To tempt fate in this way

Some might call him stupid



Sometimes he loses no matter

Sometimes he wins

Again and again

He makes bets and pledges



Nobody thought that it would

But the earth doesn't move

Fades away in the distance

And it runs on past



Let the ground beneath him disappear

Doesn't go down yonder hole

If that rabbit over there

He's just made a pact with himself



Who is watching and playing

A boy is observed on his own

On some grass covered wasteland

Thirty odd years before
