Magpie, magpie, I stand here watching the world go by
I wonder do you ever question why?
... I'm still here wondering what you knowing
I've seen more everyday than I could dream
I don't mind no what I tell you
I don't mind no what I say
I don't mind no what we're saying
But it's a hard hard fight
A hard, hard fight
And I'm turning this one in,
I'm turning this one in
I won't turn back, I've seen the sign
I won't turn back not for anyone
I've seen the sign, and I know what is mine

Eh what a lie, what a lie, what a lie, what a lie looks like
Eh what a lie, what a lie, what a lie, what a lie looks like

You didn't take I don't think you mean quite what you say
I'm hoping you're the friend you claim to be
Oh crow, crow, will you tell me ṗlease,
Tell me please what you know
You've seen more of the book than I could dream

I do not know what to tell you
I do not know what to say
I do not know what we're saying friend
But it's a hard hard fight
A hard, hard fight
And I'm turning this one in,
I'm turning this one in
I won't turn back, I've seen the sign
I won't turn back not for anyone
I've seen the sign, and I know I have faith

Eh what a lie, what a lie, what a lie, what a lie looks like
Eh what a lie, what a lie, what a lie, what a lie looks like
Eh, eh yeah

Silence when I won't be here anymore
Silence when I won't be here anymore
Silence when I won't be here anymore
Silence when I won't be here anymore

What a lie, what a lie, what a lie
What a lie, what a lie, what a lie
What a lie, what a lie, what a lie
What a lie, what a lie, what a lie
What a lie, what a lie, what a lie
