Serj Tankian – Lie Lie Lie lyrics
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie

My baby, my baby
Let me know
Because you love me, you love me
Let me go
And you're my lover, you pay me
Twice my size
And on your knees you lay
In my thighs,

Take my hand and lets end it all,
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Take my hand and lets end it all,

My baby, My baby
Let me go
And if you love me, you love me
Let me go,
Cause I'm your brother, your brother,
Have some pride,
And now you love me, you love me
Then die tonight

Take my hand and lets end it all,
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Take my hand and lets end it all,
Broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
And while she fell I delightfully said,

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie

She took my hand and I let her go
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Took my hand and she ended it all,
Broke her little bones on the boulders below,
And while she fell, I smiled.

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie

    PoliticallyAware
    Let us not forget that while Serj is an artist, he is also a very politically aware person and almost always reflects that in some way. He likes to share the truth, or at least his interpretation of it in a manner that even the most oblivious person can still find enjoyment from it.
    In all of Serj's creations, I've never understood him to write folk music without some underlying issue in there. With all the things in the world, I would hardly think that a suicide pact went wrong would be the main message in this song.
    Now, this might seem a bit of a stretch, however with his background, and his beliefs; I would assume this song has to do with the betrayal of the government towards its people and how they still blindly love and follow it (note how she continually returned after him killing her multiple times); the ignorance and blind patriotism being willfully exploited by the government if you will.
    This act of betrayal leads to the downfall of our government as we know it; because as I take it, from the video, they don't seem to understand the importance of their people.
    He's shown that he believes society and civilization as we know it is over; I just take this song to be a prelude to that, showing his belief in how it happened.
    Of course, I could be reading into it far too much. : p

    What I have heard, is that he falls in love with a girl. He then finds out that this girl, is his sister. They soon make up a suicide pact for jumping off of a waterfall together so they can be together in death. Instead, he decides to get rid of her, and lets go of her when he was also supposed to jump. He then ends up hiding his sin.

    Well sometimes you do thing and without knowing you end up understanding thing that wasn't mean to say. What darkomen said could have been true but when you look at all the other songs, the message is clear, but this one is really mixed up lol. I feel less stupid knowing that he didn't really mean anything^^' like zetsubou said. But even if there's no point really in the song doesn't mean there was absolutly no critics in that either.

    To me this just seems like one of Serj's nightmares but I do like the idea of songs not obligated to mean something. It makes you feel free to enjoy the art without thinking too much about the message. I like this song and I don't even know why! It is an art form, there to initiate debate and thoughts!

    I see the posts and see literally "sister". But I had a relationship with a girl (not related) that I should have been a better friend to and end up breaking her heat because she was more committed than I was. Kind of a childhood relationship. Bottom line. I dropped her off because I was a young kid and now see the error. This could be anthem for all the guys (i guess or girls) who take the others for granted, or worse, for their bodies.

    Every song. The writer can have a specific meaning to it, or not. But it can mean anything listeners want it to. It's good that way. :) one song can get someone all pumped up and excited and the song doesn't have to have meaning to them. But to someone else, it could mean so much to them. Maybe having to do with something that has happened to them, or reminding them of a relationship or someone who has passed on. Songs can have infinite meanings. But this little message board is cool, because people can share their ideas and maybe give it more meaning to some people. Music is so great. :)

    I believe that Serj did have a point to bring up in this song, cause to make a song usually a thought comes in your mind and you complete it is you think its good. I think this song brings up the meaning and what happens when someone tells a lie. The character seams to be only using the girl, and telling her lies. Because of all these lies he takes control. And in the music video when you see that the girl changes faces to an ugly look telling you that a lie can change a person from good to bad. And by saying let me go he could probably mean that hes leaving her, and by this she realizes the lies and becomes bad and gets taken over by evil, and at the end the man dies showing revenge. This brings up the reason of whats going on in the world, all the lies and break ups, and divorces going on is ruining peoples lives which is cause people to not be able to cooperate with each other making civilization over. If there was truly no reason behind this song it wouldn't be in the album. This song is made for others to find the real reason, and for us to realize what he has to say about whats going on.

    True, serj did say that there is no real meaning behind this song. But he also said that he does not decide the meaning behinds his songs. He does create them from ideas or events in his past, but that does not mean that there is only one interpretation of each of his songs. His songs can mean different things to different people. Just because this song was made by serj just to be fun and for no real reason does not mean that someone else could not find meaning in it.

    This song is about the Iraq war. The lie is the lies perpetrated by the us government against the American and Iraqi people in order to go to war. The us is the dominant force in the relationship, and the song is from the perspective of the Iraqi people, who want to be let go from the us involvement. They are currently in the middle of a violent insurrection that is killing both us and Iraqi citizens. Iraq was the beginnings of civilization, and the "ending of it all" is the demise of civilization between the oldest and newest civilizations on the planet. He says you're my brother because we are all humanity, but our similarities are obscured by the fuckers in charge who risk the destruction of the human race in their greed and bloodlust.

    I completely and totally agree with Politically Aware here. Serj tankian rarely makes meaningless songs, and if he does, I've never heard em and I've listened to him since the beginnings of soad. But to say that this song is just about suicide/homicide is like saying empty walls is really about drywall! This is a political song, and I think however a stretch it may have been, Aware hit it right on the money on this one. Congrats! Looking forward to hearing more of your conclusions about the rest of his stuff!

    I got the feeling that he was a serial killer who often had fake relationships and killed the women after. In the end he has unfortunate incident and is killed in an ironic twist.
    Maybe compared to how the government lies and kills the people it is supposed to protect all the time, but when the time comes, it will trip and die in its own ironic twist of fate.

    I believe that the guy was in love with someone he shouldn't have fallen for. He is more of a prostitute, but not for money. "You pay me twice my size", or more than I'm worth, and they love for it. Now the guy can't take how far this relationship has gone, but the female is so controlling. So he delightfully killed her, and then he ended his own life to put an end to the guilt.
