Arctic Monkeys - Dance Little Liar Lyrics




I heard the truth was built to bend
A mechanism to suspend the guilt is what you will require
And still you've got to dance little liar

It's just like those fibs to pop and fizz
And you'll be forced to take that awful quiz
And you're bound to trip and she'll detect the fiction on your lips
And dig a contradiction up

And the clean coming will hurt
And you can never get it spotless
When there's dirt beneath the dirt
The liar takes a lot less time

I'm sure it's clear and plain to read
It's not an alibi you need just yet
Oh no, it's something for those beads of sweat
Yes that will get you back to normal

And after you have dabbed the patch
You'll breathe and then proceed to scratch the varnish off
That newly added calmness
So as not to raise any alarms too soon

And the clean coming will hurt
And you can never get it spotless
When there's dirt beneath the dirt

The liar takes a lot less time to decide on the saunter
Have you got itchy bones and in all your time alone
Can you hack your mind being riddled with the wrong memories?

And the clean coming will hurt
And you can never get it spotless
When there's dirt in between the dirt

  7. Say 10

    I heard the truth was built to bend
    A mechanism to suspend the guilt
    Is what you are requiring still
    You've got to dance little liar
    Just like those fibbs that pop and fizz
    And you'll be forced to take that awful quiz
    And you're bound to trip
    And she'll detect the fiction on
    Your lips and dig a contradiction up
    And the clean coming will hurt
    And you can never get it spotless
    When there's dirt beneath the dirt
    The liar take a lot less time
    I'm sure it's clear and plain to me
    Its not an alibi you need just yet
    Oh no it's something for those beads of sweat
    Yes that we'll get you back to normal
    And after you have dabbed the patch you'll grieve
    And then proceed to scratch the varnish off
    That newly added calmness
    So as not to raise any alarms too soon
    And the clean coming will hurt
    And you can never get it spotless
    When there's dirt beneath the dirt
    The liar takes a lot less
    Time to decide on his saunter
    Have you got itchy bones
    And in all your time alone
    Can you hack your mind being riddled
    With the wrong memories
    And the clean coming will hurt
    And you can never get it spotless
    When there's dirt between the dirt

    This song made me ask myself if there are still some kinds of wild cows out there
    i dont know why

  10. Marissa Turner

    Once I broke my left headphone and in the solo part at 3:18 suddenly the song stopped and I was like “what happened!” and saw that the song was still playing I thought that maybe there was a glitch in my phone or something so I kept listening the song and all the time got cut in that part and then continued after the solo ends. Then I bought new headphones and again I was ready for the “glitch” to cut off the song again...and then I realized that in this part you can only hear the first part in the right headphone and in the second part you can only hear it in the left headphone! I was amazed they made the song in a way that right and left side have their own part to be listened.

    Un petit riff à peine colérique ou des intentions bigarrées de musique. Le miel coule électrique à pleins flots, en de petits ruisseaux .La batterie en plein discernement cogne à souhaits, légère et brutale, dispose. Sa mesure d'accompagnement.La colonne vertébrale.Essentielle.La basse. Les piliers du rock. Survient l'envol de la palombe effrayée. Le refuge dans les branches épineuses, éviter le menteur qui suscite une telle ire. Et puis tout défouraille, l'énergie des instruments de la voix, envoie cet élixir de bonheur. A entendre dans la jouissance. Les notes entremêlées. Celles des auteurs.S'en repaître jusqu'à plus soif. Dans la stridence progressive. Ecouter. Juste ça. Ecouter.Plaisirs. Aimer jusqu'au bout de la nuit. Noire et blanche selon homo sapiens.Revigorer les heures joyeuses, le chaos sous-jasent est tapis dans l'ombre de sa propre terreur.

  12. calvez philippe

    Une chanson qui fait du bien. Entre rage et suavité. il n'existe pas de musique meilleures que d'autres. Ça n'existe pas. Jamais . Cette mélopée chaotique m'envoie rêver dans des cieux d'harmonies.

    Posting the lyrics here so I wouldn't have to look them up all the time I find myself listening to the song here.

    Kevin Yu

    Scorched7879 your fault for going in circles

    7879

    Kevin Yu I know what you meant I just disagree. I've tried to explain what I think to you but you keep trying to push your idea that he is trying to get likes so if you think that then fine. I've not fine in circles, you have, because I have said people only try to get likes when they want people to see what they wrote, and if he knew that it was in the description then he wouldn't want people to see what he wrote, and therefore wouldn't want to get likes, but then you have said he did it to get likes, and went in a circle. You have your opinion, I have mine. Fine I don't care anymore.

    Kevin Yu

    Scorched7879 loser

    Remix Dragon

    Scorched7879 ok so he’s saying that he’s doing something known that’s gets likes in the comments section and that’s likes and he was a bit of a dick to assume a lot of people go straight to the comments for the lyrics instead of the description

    7879

    Remix Dragon yeah I understood he just didn't listen to anything. But jeez I did get angry yikes.

  66. TimeSpace

    This song is slept on!

  67. Michael Monks

    Why is this not a regular in their set lists. Massively underrated!!

  68. _]_]

  72. Fernando Duran

    Humbug > AM

    Church

    八月August I don’t think humbug is better than AM because I’m trying to be hipster I just find a lot of the tracks on AM a little bland and not the kind of music I like from the monkeys while I think humbug is a masterpiece of an album

    八月August

    @Church
    I do think Humbug is better, but like everyone in the comments is all "HuMBUG iS sUPerIOr, aM fAnBOys stuPiD"

    K J

    Of course

    K J

    @八月August No one says AM sucks. I love the album but Humbug is just better. Calm down.

  91. Mert Kaan Yılmaz

    1.25 is so damn goood

  92. ClumsyAmbivert

    First time I heard the song I actually got annoyed on the beginning, then I thought "this song has to be really good to redeem itself"
    I swore, when the drums started my jaw dropped and after that I knew this song would be my favorite.
    (still dk why I thought the beginning was annoying, since nowadays I don't mind it at all)

    Laila Hariri

    Carol A A I used to find Brian Molko's voice annoying when I first heard every you, every me. Now Placebo is my fav band.

  93. Igor19485

    This.. this is more than art. Alex is a pure genius.

    Umut

  94. Bob SAMs

    This shit is crazy .... I've never heard so many songs before that are put together close to the word if perfect ....... There's not a word u can put on it ....theses songs and lyrics and musically put together instruments ... The way they do it ., is masterpieces

  95. thisismusic

    This is just sublime. Honestly, this is a work of genius. Turner will surely go down as the one of the greatest lyricists of all time.

    Alexa Levi
