You are the voice of reason that I can't escape
Cut me down a thousand times a day
I don't need you anymore
I don't need you anymore

I trusted you and there was no one else
All you did was make me doubt myself
Don't believe you anymore
Don't believe you anymore

You bled me out
You tore me down
Your time has come
You can go

'Cause you're a liar, liar
Lie!
All my faith's been wasted, wasted
'Cause you're a liar, liar
Lie!
I don't need you to save me anymore

I'm fragile, but I'm not a fool
I won't hear another word from you
You won't hurt me anymore
You won't hurt me anymore
The hand I held just held me down
It took so long, now I know

'Cause you're a liar, liar
Lie!
All my faith's been wasted, wasted
'Cause you're a liar, liar
Lie!
I won't sit here and take this anymore

You can say anything that you wanna say
But my attention's long gone and turned away
You're such a lie
You were only the enemy
Everything you are, I will deny

(Solo)

'Cause you're a liar, liar
Lie!
I'll just come out and say it, say it
'Cause you're a liar, liar
Lie!
All my faith's been wasted, wasted
'Cause you're a liar, liar
Liar!
I don't need you to save me anymore

I don't need you to save me anymore
I don't need you to save me anymore

    What the f...!! What a devastating time between two friends, from a lost way to a lost watchman/celeb. This is difficult. Time and true understanding will help both refind what matters most.

    This is a song dedicated to all the claims by the companies that market "low fat", "reduced calorie", and "new and improved" products. They are a lie!

    By the way, just wanted to correct you guys, drugs are not liars, you were aware that someday it will ruin your life somehow, but you still used them. So it never lies about anything, everybody knows that it has terrible side effects

    This song may be depicted as a song about love and relationships, but if you look into the song deeper, its more about drug life. Think about it... Every single lyric in this song is leading to drugs. He doesn't need them anymore, they did nothing but ruin his life, nevertheless... The drugs are liars.
