Lyrics for Rebellion (Lies) by Arcade Fire:

Verse 1Sleeping is giving inNo matter what the time isSleeping is giving inSo lift those heavy eyelidsPeople say that you'll dieFaster than without waterBut we know it's just a lieScare your son, scare your daughterVerse 2People say that your dreamsAre the only things that save youCome on baby, in our dreamsWe can live our misbehaviorRefrainEvery time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyesEvery time you close your eyesEvery time you close your eyesEvery time you close your eyesVerse 3People try and hide the nightUnderneath the coversPeople try and hide their liesUnderneath the coversCome on hide the loversUnderneath the coversCome on hide the loversUnderneath the coversHiding from your brothersUnderneath the coversCome on hide the loversUnderneath the coversVerse 4People say that you'll dieFaster than without waterBut we know it's just a lieScare your son, scare your daughterScare your son, scare your daughterScare your son, scare your daughterRefrainNow here's the sun, it's alright! (Lies! Lies!)Now here's the moon, it's alright! (Lies! Lies!)Now here's the sun, it's alright! (Lies! Lies!)Now here's the moon, it's alright! (Lies! Lies!)But every time you close your eyes (Lies! Lies!)Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies!)Every time you close your eyesEvery time you close your eyesEvery time you close your eyes
