Lies Lyrics - Evanescence

Review The Song (35)

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'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


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

I really enjoyed this song, I find it very moving. I like how the other person doing to reveiw stated that it is sung in 3 person. One of a person, on of satin, and one of Jesus.

Its obvious to say that this song is Christian as one of Jesus most famous lines was- I will never leave you nor forsake you.
I mean, who else has stated those words.?
I wish modern Evanescence was like this because I really enjoy it. Its a shame that david hodges left...He would have made Evanescence greater.

Beautiful Song | Reviewer: SilentSound | 8/7/11

There's the same feeling that I had when I was depressed and didn't know should I believe in God or not. I think this is a master piece - whole CD is. Those other songs like Going Under... I'm not even good musician but I could still easily make song like that. Just use 3 differend cord and make melody. So I think this is far better than that shit.

Love the Meaning | Reviewer: bri | 7/22/11

We used this song for an amazing DRIME in church. It still gives me chills everytime I hear it. Love the fight between our own failed self-esteem, the lies Satan feeds us, and the voice of Jesus calling out to us over both. If only we would listen to Him more than ourselves or the king of lies!

about Lies | Reviewer: ~*AM*~ | 4/6/11

This is my favorite Evanescence song, its amazing!!! Its very deep and dark and raw even though its well-layered. I thing Evanescence sounded better during the Fallen and pre-Fallen years, who agrees?
It's definitely Ben, ive heard him sing before and it sounds like him.

Lyrics Meaning... | Reviewer: EvenescenseIsDaBomb | 11/20/10

I can't help but assume that the lyrics to Lies do have a very powerful meaning. I broke it down, stanza by stanza, and found some incredible things. The song is sung from 3 different view points: one of a person, one of Satan, and one of Jesus himself. The first stanza, the thoughts of a person, is about pain and understanding you can't live on your own. The second, which is Satan speaking to the person, is telling the person that they're worthless and feeding them all these lies. The third goes back to the person trying to fight the lies that are being thrown at them. The fourth is still the person saying that they found Jesus. The apostle Paul saw a blinding light on the road to Damascus when he found Jesus. The bleeding tree mentioned may mean the cross where Jesus' blood was poured out. The fifth is Jesus speaking to the person. In the Bible Jesus says "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Jesus was born knowing he would die for the sins of the world, and when He died on the cross his arms were nailed apart, as if he was asking for a hug or something. Jesus says somewhere else in the Bible "I will never leave you nor forsake you." That's just my opinion, feel free to disagree. However, if you have any questions about the Bible, God, Jesus, or anything like that, send me an email. I'd love to try to help answer your questions.

seriously? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/24/10

look if u dont like evanescence and think this song is boring, then dont listen to it. i don understand how people like u cant get the concept that no one is making u listen to them, also with we are the fallen, the have a girl that looks and sounds simila to amy lee, i say sounds similar because amy lee sounds amazing, the other girls voice is kinda tweaky and not as powerful, but she is a good singer. so im not quite sure where your getting the whole voice rangeing thing

not that great to me | Reviewer: anonymous | 7/21/10

this song is just kinda boring. no great genius work here at all. one of the simplest songs Ive heard. they kind of disappoint me when she sings live. its not very good. it makes me sad. i like we are the fallen. better voice ranges there.

Brilliance | Reviewer: DragonriderGirl | 6/14/10

I like how Evanescence write so many different songs in so many different genres... I love this song though. After arguing with my parents on getting Origin - fake or not - off of Ebay, it looked like I never had to go through the trouble when I found the link to all Pre-fallen material through the Evanescence Reference.
However, i'm curious on what the Lies lyrics mean. And who the background singer is... Ben Moody? Rocky Gray????

MY THEME SONG!! :DD | Reviewer: Valnmyra | 11/29/09

I LOVE this song!!! My iTunes said this was under the category of "Gothic Rock",...Well if it is, It's the best Gothic Rock song I've heard so far! My favorite parts are the heavy speaking near the end, and the end itself. =>

I do not get it at all | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/9/09

I've looked at the lyrics, listen how it was sung, and it's a great tune really, very well put together, but I honestly have to say I can't enjoy it simply because I don't get the point of the song. doesn't make sense to me at all, and if a song has no point I find it's hard to understand

captivating | Reviewer: xXLoVeXx | 10/3/09

This song is wonderful. It is my absolute favorite and it's lyrics really speak to me even more every time I listen to it. Is it on itunes?
Amy Lee is gifted beyond belief with her GORGEOUS voice. I love all Evanescence has to offer, but Lies, is definitely THE BEST by far (for me that is)

Nice | Reviewer: J.M. | 5/20/09

My gosh i tried so hard to get this song as stupid itunes did'nt have it but then I had my brother find it in a differnt website and he found it and I made him e-mail it to me as I was totally desperate for this song as it's one of the most coolest songs i've ever listen to.

how can it be bruce fithugh if its off their origin album? they werent even known then. fyi, origin was an EP and i doubt bruce fithugh from living sacrifice [which is good, ill admitt] have done a song with only amy lee and ben moody? they couldnt even hire band members back than why would someone from such a successful metal band go join evanescence for one song without being paid or even being mentioned on the ep as 'featured with' or 'guest vocals by'...

Amy and Ben are Generous | Reviewer: AmyListener | 12/8/07

Idk if you found the source yet but Lies and almost all the Pre-Fallen music is available for free at

This is one of the best songs they produced. So many bands struggle to put out a good first CD. Evanescence had to cut so much of their original good stuff. They really should have started with a double CD album. XD
