[Verse 1]
B                    E
  He burned down the house one night
         B               G#m E
He had a loaded six-pack gun
             B
He said that Jesus Christ was
E
just like a cop You know you
B                       G#m F# E F#

  She said every day above ground
     B                 G#m E
was another dream come true
            B
He said I'd hang and swap
   E
cliches all night But

I'm not in love with you
 
 
[Refrain 1]
F#                G#m
  And I never got serious
    B               E
Til everything went black
F#               G#m
  And I ain't so curious
         B          E
That I'm ever going back

B
  He said man you
E
want to be Elvis
       B
I said I ain't
           G#m E
dying face down
            B
He said you gotta die
       E
facing up in the world
              B
cause there's too
            G#m  F# E F#
many holes around
 
 
[Verse 4]
B                   E
  He asked what was wrong
                  B
with me He said I looked
                 G#m E
like a Hollywood girl
            B
I said that Hollywood can
              E
fall into the ocean man
               B
cause it's the ugliest
             G#m
place in the whole
F#   E     F#

Til everything went black
F#               G#m
  And I ain't so curious
         B          E
That I'm ever going back

                  He burnt down the house one night
He had a loaded sixpack gun
He said that Jesus Christ was just like a cop
You know you never know when they'll come

She said, every day above ground
Was another dream come true
He said, I'd hang and swap cliches all night
But I'm not in love with you

And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back

On the lie
On the lie
On the lie
On the lie

He said, man, you want to be Elvis
I said, I ain't dying face down
He said, you've got to die facing up in the world
'Cause there's too many holes around

He asked what was wrong with me
He said, I looked like a Hollywood girl
I said that Hollywood can fall into the ocean, man
'Cause it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world

And he never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back

On the lie
On the lie
On the lie
On the lie

On the lie
He was on the lie
On the lie
She was on the lie
On the lie
He was on the lie
There's always stinking lies
