A liars fav tact when caught is to turn it around, blaming anyone but themselves for it.
I honestly don't know about honesty
There seems so many a kind
For some, it's the greatest challenge
Trying to deceive another's mind

The justifications are it seems
All too many and varied
No matter what excuse is given
They're about to become dead and buried

It depends which end of the deception
You might find yourself on
Is it better to be the one who is lied too?
Or the one who's about to be gone

Lies are often found wanting
And liars remarkably lazy
It's too hard to remember the details
Enough to drive them crazy

If you don't ask me any questions
I promise to tell you no lies
“I will be everything you ever wanted”
Put me up on a pedestal in your own eyes

“But remember who put me up there”
“And who brought on my inevitable fall”
"It's all your fault for making me lie to you"
And for causing our love to stall
