A Fortune in Lies Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I can remember when
In the unity of our five-day sessions
Not even once did we hear
The siren song

What kind of imagination
Asleep in some lyrical coma
Who's vain futile memory
Could have been so wrong?

You can make a fortune in lies
You can keep a giant alive
You can ride the red
Until everybody smiles

A trifling euphoria
Was such an untimely religion
Maybe your life can explain
The reason for my indecision

Here is a poor man
The heart of this monster creation
He said we both will be heroes
And I was led into temptation

You can make a fortune in lies
You can keep a giant alive
You can ride the red
Until everybody smiles

Can you show me
Your gold and your silver?
A hero in frozen water

Now you've made a fortune in lies
And you kept a giant alive
You rode the red
You rode the red
