En Vogue


Lies, lies, using lies as alibis

Lie's, lies, just a devil in disguise

It's the same game

Played in so many ways

Everyone is the victim too

It's just a waste of time

Made for simple minds

So why do people insist on lies

I'll give my life a different way

Refuse to let myself become a victim

Getting caught you in a vicious web of lies, they can hurt you

And destroy you, you watch out for lies, just a devil in disguise


The nation's leaders as well as teachers

Practice lies as a way of lie, yes they do

So think before you speak

Cause what you sow you reap

The truth will always come to light

Will we ever learn one day

That telling lies always bring to matters

Misery and sometimes pain

chorus x4


Lies and deceit

Yes it's running real rampant

Communities suffering, yo I can't stand it

When we think of lies we tend to think of politicians

But what about the husband who's on a mission

Lying to his wife so he can get it on and get some

Coming back home with a dumb expression

Written on a face that he's guilty as a criminal

It's time to change your attitude

People do you hear me, don't listen

To a funky rhyme that's kickin' knowledge that we need

We lie about our hair

And we know we got a weave

Politicians lie about the things they're gonna do

And everybody's tale affects me and you

A smoker lies about the money that he stole

And a dope dealer never tells you how he got his gold

I guess what Debbie T. is really trying to say

When you break it all down we're all the same

I'll live my life a different way

Refuse to let myself be caught up

In a vicious web of lies
