Telling me to go,
But hands beg me to stay.
Your lips say that you love,
Your eyes say that you hate.

There's truth in your lies,
Doubt in your faith.
What you build you lay to waste.
There's truth in your lies,
Doubt in your faith.
All I've got's what you didn't take.

So I, I won't be the one,
Be the one to leave this,
In pieces.
And you, you will be alone,
Alone with all your secrets,
And regrets.
Don't lie.

You promised me the sky,
Then tossed me like a stone.
You wrap me in your arms,
And chill me to the bone.

There's truth in your lies,
Doubt in your faith.
All I've got's what you didn't take.

So I, I won't be the one,
Be the one to leave this,
In pieces.
And you, you will be alone,
Alone with all your secrets,
And regrets.
Don't lie.

So I, I won't be the one,
Be the one to leave this,
In pieces.
And you, you will be alone,
Alone with all your secrets,
And regrets.
Don't lie.

    I think it means that she cheated on him, and that hes not gonna be the one that ruined everything that it'll be her and that what goes around comes around so what she did will make her alone. Also that when he says "theres truth in your lies doubt in your faith", that he means that nothing is true, all her lies arent complete lies her faith isnt real faith. Yup, go LP, great guitar work and I love his voice XD

    its about a girl that consistantly lied to him cheated or not is not specified. when he says theres truth in your lies meaning probably when theyd get into a fight shed say something hurtfull and then say it was a lie when it really wasnt. he is not going to break up with her becuase he wont be the one to leave this in pieces, shes doin all the work for it to end. well thats just my opinion of this mainly cuz of how it relates to my personal life.

    I think it means that she cheated on him and that he is now through with her and is breaking up with her. I don't know. But what I am absolutly positive on is that guitar solo ROCKS!!!

    i somewhat agree with paramorerox, but i think its more like "you lied to me about everything, so own up to it."
