about

This song is dedicated to confirmation bias and anyone who has shared something on the internet they agreed with before checking its veracity.

This song has a bad word. If you don't like bad words then I respect that. Check out the bad-word-free version here: pedestrianzero.bandcamp.com/track/lie-to-me-baby-censored

lyrics

Just lie to me baby
Speak the words I want to hear
Look me straight in the eye...
Tell me I'm always in the right
And hang the consequences as long as we're blind

Such a beautiful hoax; walking around with your eyes half closed
No uncomfortable truths; all justified 'cause words are just tools

So come on lie to me baby
I've been here waiting on you
Give me a reason to fight
A cause with which I can identify
I'm not contrarian, but I love to decry

Is it so wrong to find our comfort inside
The safest point of view, see me I am inclined
To fuck the consequences, I'll be better off blind

Such a beautiful hoax; walking around with your eyes half closed
No uncomfortable truths; all justified 'cause words are just tools yeah
It's my invincible cloak; walking around with my eyes half closed
And nothing touches my truth; I am justified and I am resolute

Don't care for consequences, I've got right on my side
