"Lies" is the ninth track on Evanescence's demo album, Origin.

Background[]

Bruce Fitzhugh of the band 'Living Sacrifice' provided the male vocals on the Origin version and Stephanie Pierce provided the female backup vocals (soprano) for this version.[1] Later, this song was remade with Amy and David's vocals, and different lyrics. The latter version was labelled as "remix", but Amy noted on EvBoard that fans should refer to it as "Post-Origin demo".

Lyrics[]

Origin version[]

Bound at every limb by my shackles of fear
Sealed with lies through so many tears
Lost from within, pursuing the end
I fight for the chance to be lied to again

You will never be strong enough
You will never be good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

They I'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

But through my tears breaks a blinding light
Birthing a dawn to this endless night
Arms outstretched, awaiting me
An open embrace upon a bleeding tree

Rest in me and I'll comfort you
I have lived and I died for you
Abide in me and I vow to you
I will never forsake you

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

Rest in me and I'll comfort you
I have lived and I died for you
Abide in me and I vow to you
I will never forsake you

They'll never see
I'll never be
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me

Post-Origin version[]

Bind [Bind] my limbs with fear [fear]
Choke me with tears [tears]
I won't die for you

You've [you've] been here before [before]
And come back for more [more]
But not this time

You will never be strong enough
You will never be good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
I should have known all along it was all a lie
I should have known it was all a lie

Now [now] I know the truth [truth]
I'm through fearing you [you]
And I am free

You will never be strong enough
You will never be good enough
You were never conceived in love
You will not rise above

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
I should have known all along it was all a lie [lie]
I should have known it was all a lie

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
I should have known all along it was all a lie [lie]

Somebody tell me what made us all believe you
[I should have known] I should have known it was all a lie
I should have known it was all a lie
