The words
Came down the line
Just a few words
At a time
The meaning
It was Clear
There was no sign of fear
The scene
That they described
Were sad
You could have cried
The journey's
Just too long
To even
Take the ride

It's always
The same
It's always
In vain
If the truth
Were only known
If the words
Had only shown

That lies and deception
They move in one direction
And then in the end you lose........

That lies and deception
They move in one direction
And then in the end you lose........
You lose

And now
The line is dead
You did everything
You ever said
You brought it down
You turned around
And what was said
Was said
The deed is done
You've had your fun
And home again
You'll run

You know inside
You'll never hide
And what was done
Was done

It's always
The same
It's always
In vain
If the truth
Were only known
If the words
Had only shown

That lies and deception
They move in one direction
And then in the end you lose........

That lies and deception
They move in one direction
And then in the end you lose........
