Original song written on the day and played without rehearsal for the monthly literary/music session in the Heidelberg Jazzhaus, 4 April 2014. The theme was Lies. Peter Antony: music, text, keyboards and vocals. Jochen Seiterle: guitar. Christoph Keller: bass. Tom Beisel: drums.

Things ain't al-ways as they seem
But sometimes they are on this little blue dot.
And if a liar tells you he's lying
It must be the truth - or maybe it's not.

'Cos you're such a dog ma vic tim
And you've always been relying
When it's a religious congregation
To hear some common sense denying

So watch how the tail wags the dog
Lies be-come truth
Don't look for proof
Follow the line
Don't take the time
To stop
And think
'Cos the bigger the lie 
The harder to perceive
The bigger the lie 
The easier to believe
Just believe the lie
It's easy
So easy

But me
I only lie in bed
And listen to your lonely tales
Of the love you thought you lost
When he lied to you in yours
And said

Things ain't always as they seem
But sometimes they are on this little blue dot.
And if a liar tells you he's lying
It must be the truth - or maybe it's not.

You're just a propaganda victim
And you've always been so willing
When it's a red flag operation
To condone the senseless killing

So watch how the tail wags the dog
Lies be-come truth
Don't look for proof
Follow the line
Don't take the time
To stop
And think
'Cos the bigger the lie 
The harder to perceive
The bigger the lie 
The easier to believe
Just believe the lie
It's easy
So easy
