When We Lie | The 30 Years Mix

about

As of this writing, it is March 21st, 2020 and we should all be at home doing our part to help level out that bell curve against Covid-19. This means that for most musicians, paid shows are gone. And for those of us who relied on shows for our careers? Well, it's a scary time. It cannot be denied by me or anyone else in this industry.

This is a special version to celebrate When We Lie's (Peace), 30-year birthday. It's longer, it's bolder, and what else? It's about time. I originally created this version to be part of a 12" Vinyl, but with all the stuff that's going on, I don't think this is going to happen any time soon.

Look, it just does not make sense. But here is in its HQ glory, ready to be played loud, to incite dancing in your living room as you stay put during these trying times... And to sit there on your phone whenever you need it. The record will happen when it can, I promise.

As a creator, I am stuck at home too. My shows were canceled, and who knows when they will return. Until then, there is now, and so here you go. It's a #synthpop favorite of Abox fans and I hope you will spread the word!

This song is not going to Spotify. It's here and only here.

lyrics

I look to you
And I see that you’re aware
I feel as though
You can see what’s deep inside
Do you ever feel the need
For the honesty in what you see? Do you ever want to know What’s in store for you and me?
When we lie
We lie together all the time The future’s mine
When we lie
We lie together all the time The future’s mine
I have never seen
The honesty in some people’s minds Only in you
Did I ever find something inside
The loneliness and the broken dreams
That’s what we’re going to share Everything that is in your face
I will recognize with time
When we lie
We lie together all the time The future’s mine
When we lie
We lie together all the time The future’s mine
Everything that is in your face
I will recognize with time (when we lie) Everything that you’ve ever done
You will do to me
When we lie
We lie together all the time The future’s mine
When we lie
We lie together all the time The future’s mine
Claude S. (1990)

Whatever you think you know about 'synthpop' throw it out your window. Synthpop here is an art movement, a dadaist version. For people. Maybe someone like you. We like you. You're still reading this? OK. Be careful, time displacements have been known to occur in this construct. Are you still reading this? Good. You are worthy. ... more
