Menzingers, The - Tellin' Lies Lyrics




Oh yeah, oh yeah, everything is terrible
When buying marijuana makes you feel like a criminal
When your new friends take a joke too literal
Making you feel like the bad guy

Oh where are we gonna go
Oh now that our twenties are over?

Oh yeah, oh yeah, all hope abandoned
I'm not young enough to be your companion
Not old enough to be your guide
What a cliche time to try

Oh where are we gonna go
Oh now that our twenties are over?

Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
Everyone's asking me over and over
The decade taken hostage
By my own guilty conscience
When you gonna quit this nonsense?
Everyone's asking me over and over
But I don't mind telling lies, lies

So oh yeah, oh yeah, let's go to Vegas
Put it all on black and get married by Elvis
If we wake up broke, we'll be fine
We'll get rich in another lifetime

Oh where are we gonna go
Oh now that our twenties are over?

Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
Everyone's asking me over and over
The decade taken hostage
By my own guilty conscience
When you gonna quit this nonsense?
Everyone's asking me over and over
But I don't mind telling lies, lies

Like tension you can cut with a knife
Like a wedding ring that never fit right
Like a car alarm that won't stop howling
A decade lost in the motions
To romance and cheap whiskey
The subtle sound of a fleeting feeling
Like four chords that don't love you no more
In a motel room, a sleeping bag on the floor

Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)
Is it wrong to say that things can change? (Telling lies)

Menzingers, The Tellin' Lies Comments
  1. Justin Reyes

    Just turned 30, "where am I gonna go now that my 20s are over"

  2. Scott Carpenter

    I like this band except for the vocals. It is like they have two guys singing backing vocals and no one singing lead.

  3. Justin Reyes

    I'm turning 30 this year :( where am I gonna go now that my 20's are over? :(

  4. Craig Rothon

    Listening on my 30th birthday 👍

  5. Rory Burns

    love finding new punk bands, the breath and depth of the emotion of this song is incredible, makes me feel so exhileratingly fatalistic and fond of past and present times whilst mourning the fading of my youthnall at once

  6. Wilhelms Cream

    I've slept on this but good godamn it's awesome, listened to Chamberlain Waits (obviously their best) the other night and am really enjoying them again. This band is heavily underrated. Having to listen to god awful radio music the whole day coming to this gives me goosebumps.

  7. The Yodaneer

    If you're turning 30, this is the song you're supposed to play. LOUD.

    Justin Reyes

    Agreed, just turn 30 today :'(

    Tangerine Man

    I got about 7 years but I just told myself that in my head lol

    Toby McMullen

    Oh, where are we gonna go, oh, now that our twenties are over?

    Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
    Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
    Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?
    Everyone's asking me over and over

  26. Paddie Corley

    Isaac B

    Yeah, this albums on repeat has gotten me through a few states.

  27. Brennan Hartnett

    Oh yeah oh yeah everything is terrible, when buying marijuana makes you feel like a criminal. Great fucking way to start a record.

  36. Miguel Ramirez

    Great opening track to a marvelous record. The way the melody is sung, reminds me of Rancid. Such a killer track.

    ANONYMOUS GOOD CHARLOTTE FAN!!!!!

    Miguel Ramirez omg yessssss

    Alex Rakowski

    never would've thought that if i didn't see this comment, but that's spot on

  37. MrMotherfuck123

    New Record does NOT beat On the impossible Past.

    Michael O'Malley

    MrMotherfuck123. yeah, but we've already heard OTIP tons of times and it's nice to hear some new output.

    MastaShake

    They have been evolving their music with age. So you can't expect this album to 'beat" any other album. It's just different... and if you don't like it in comparison, don't listen to it.

    James Marlon

    Did you really expect it to beat one of the best punk albums of the decade? This album is still great.

    William Dawson

    MrMotherfuck123 this record grows on you

    Branko Nikolić

    This album is better. It is possible.

  38. David Lorandi

    This song express perfectly their feeling about getting older while they feel themselves still young rockers.
    Great "four chords song"!!!

  39. Zack Smith

    Mark hoppus approved
