Show me how to lie, you're getting better all the time
And turning all against the one, is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word, sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back in the line, a mob jumps to their feet.

Now dance, fucker, dance,
Man he never had a chance,
And no one even knew
It was really only you.

And now you steal away,
Take him out today,
Nice work you did,
You're gonna go far, kid.

With a thousand lies, and a good disguise
Hit em right between the eyes, hit em right between the eyes,
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see em running for their lives

Slowly out of line, and drifting closer in your sights,
So play it out, I'm wide awake,
its a scene about me..
There's something in your way, and now someone is gonna pay
And if you cant get what you want, well, its all because of me.

Now dance, fucker, dance,
Man I never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you'll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid
(Trust, deceived)

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit em right between the eyes, hit em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see em running for their lives

Now dance, fucker, dance, he never had a chance
And no one even knew, it was really only you
So dance, fucker, dance, I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit em right between the eyes, hit em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see em running for their lives

Clever alibis, Lord of the Flies
Hit em right between the eyes, hit em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see em running for their lives.
