House of Lies


This is a house of lies
I guess that makes me liar-in-chief
Chief Supporter of Delusions
Chief Enabler of Foolishness
Chief Promoter of Farces and Falsehood
Can I put that on a resume?

Sir, do you have mess that needs hiding?
A jalopy that needs a selling?
Then, I’m your gal.
At least until you want the Truth
Ain’t seen her sorry face around here in years
Not sure I’d even recognize her.

Yell, if you see her coming
Tell her I’m in the house of lies
The one built of walls with no footholds.
But like a rock face in the sun
The cracks hold promise:
Maybe Truth is a climber
