This came up on my iTunes and I played it over and over again. This means you need to hear it.

L.A. dream pop band The Devics, "Lie to Me", off their album Push the heart.

We are a nation, a people, a human race, that demands to be lied to. Lies are what gives meaning to our futile short lives of masticating and defecating and fornicating and meaningless labor and sleep. Without lies we are faced with the reality of infinity and the eyeblink that we live within it. We are nothing more than complex microbes infesting the surface of a watery planet, we're born, we live a picosecond in universe time, we die, and everything we build will eventually be consumed by the sands of time. Our lives are meaningless. That is a reality that most shudder from, and seek refuge in some lie, some savior, some cause to believe in.

And nowhere does this happen more than in affairs of the heart...

  1. Hell, these American monkeys don't even know when they are lying to themselves.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
