Devine Lies

Devine Lies

Continually pushing the boundaries of modern rock, Devine Lie flex their creative muscle on their first album, Devine Lies. Diverse, thought-provoking, alternative songs with haunting hooks and emotional impact.

Anchored by a solid rhythm section, Devine Lie play a mixture of instruments to catch the mood of the song and to sculpt descriptive soundscapes – from haunting pipes to illuminate the song Dromoland, which was written in the grounds of ancient Dromoland Castle in Ireland, to multi-layered electric guitars on Barquentine’s Gasp, possibly the only song ever written about one of the characters from Mervyn Peake’s Titus Groan Gormenghast trilogy.

- written, produced and performed by Devine Lie.

Song Lyrics:

Underground

Underground
Walking down a dark street Waiting for the girl Street lights begin to flicker You start your twirl

Deep dirty underground

Been a long time Since I committed a crime Been a long time What was I expecting to find

Another world far removed From the daily grind Deep inside a place I’ve just started to find

Deep dirty underground

Been a long time Since I committed a crime Been a long time What was I expecting to find

You were someone’s daughter I’m someone’s son Who sets the lines That drive us underground

Deep dirty underground

Been a long time Since I committed a crime Been a long time What was I expecting to find

Just Leave

Just Leave
Life’s what you make it Love’s what takes it Come on Come on Love’s the only fee Life’s your tragedy Come on Come on Never grabbed the chance Never slipped a glance Leave Just leave Always quick to bite Never missed a fight Go Just go Life’s how you make it Lie don’t fake it Come on Come on Try all you can Try and make a stand Come on Come on Never grabbed the chance Never slipped a glance Leave Just leave Always quick to bite Never missed a fight Go Just go Love’s never free Love’s a massive fee Come on Come on Life’s a final turn Love’s what make it burn Come on Come on Never grabbed the chance Never slipped a glance Leave Just leave Always quick to bite Never missed a fight Go Just go

Dreams

Stay
Stay And be kind to me Stay Life’s no guarantee If only you could see What’s happening to me You’d stay You’d stay You’d stay with me

Stay Give me all your love Stay I’m not the one your sick of A dimming sunlit glow Is all I’ll have to show Just stay Just stay Just stay with me

Time

Time
Time is precious Time is fear Time is always Far too near Time to think Time to cry Time is gone Before you sigh Before you die Time is money Time is clear Time is only a Second tear Time to see Time to lie Time is gone before you sigh Before you die

Eyes

Eyes
Your eyes Led me on Led me astray Led me away Away From today From white walls From cluttered halls I’m sure Sure you knew I was hooked Hooked right through

Eyes made me cry Made me lie Made me fly Away Eyes made me see Made me need Need to be Free

Your eyes Led me on Led me astray Led me away Away From what’s grey From those stares From those glares I’m sure Sure you knew I was hooked Hooked right through

Devine Lies

Devine Lies
Whatever you might say They say it’s wrong Whatever you might do It’s just the same old song Feel the grief Feel the pain Widows scream Soldiers die But we all know It’s just Devine lies

Search the barren land Find the charm Search the buried tombs Touch the withered arm Squeeze the juice Squeeze the frame Mothers scream Children cry But we all know It’s just Devine Lies

Lift the saddened veil Sallow eyes Free the tethered soul See how she cries Grab the stare Take the strain Hear the prayer So arcane Fascist thoughts Controlling eye Don’t they know It’s just Devine Lies

Barquentine’s Gasp

Barquentine’s Gasp
Keda What you waiting for You know you’ve got to go Got to slam the door Fire rages brightly Around the ancient walls Your last gasp echoes Through the Castle Halls I tried to save you Tried to save you so hard Doctor believe me I meant no harm

Keda Go through the glade The carvers will guide you All along the way The shadowy figures On the roof still peer Memories linger But only I will steer I tried to save you Tried to save you so hard Doctor believe me I meant no harm
