Your Life is a Lie Lyrics


Here's the deal
Open your eyes
Your Life is a Lie
Don't say a word
I'll tell you why
You're living a lie
Your life is a lie
But you deny, you ever lied
Wondering why
Bury your life
Count your friends
On your hands
Now look again
They're not your friends
Hold your breath
Everyone left
No surprise
Living a lie

Tell your wife
This is your life
Your life is a lie
This is your wife
Now she knows, she understands
Her life is a lie
Nobody wins
Try not to cry
You'll survive
On your own

Lessons in life
Your life is a lie
Now there's no time
Wondering why
Where in the world
Is that girl?
He knows she's alright
To live a life
Waiting to die
Not knowing that
Your life is a lie
Wondering why
Nobody writes
Hollow inside
Periods in light
Fire and ice
Your life is a lie
Your life is a lie
Your life is a lie
Your life is a lie
On your own
One more time
Your life is a lie

Your Life is a Lie
  • The second single released from MGMT's eponymous third album is a short, sharp slice of surrealism. Vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden told Relix magazine that he wrote the song, "while tripping hard on acid by a fire."
  • MGMT premiered the song live during their concert at Portland, Maine's State Theatre on April 30, 2013.
  • The song's music video finds MGMT again working with Tom Kuntz, who was director of the band's 2010 mini-epic widescreen clip for "Congratulations." Kuntz pairs the band with an assortment of colorful characters, including skeletons singing around a piano, talking dolphins and Happy Days actor Henry Winkler.
  • On the face of it, some of the lyrics could be read as a rebuttal to MGMT's fair-weather fans who ditched the duo after their commercially successful Oracular Spectacular album:

    "Count your friends on your hands
    Now look again, they're not your friends."

    VanWyngarden said in an interview this interpretation would be missing the point: "It's not supposed to be directed at our fans," he said. "It's more for people to use and direct towards whoever they want, whoever they feel like is holding them down."
