Background and compositionEdit
Diamandis deemed "Lies" a "personal record" about a boy who was a coward and for whom she had no respect. She was angry about what happened between them so she wrote "Lies" as a form of release. Half of the track was written in the home of Bruce Springsteen while the verse was written after a gig in Stone Pony, New Jersey.
Notably, Diamandis performed an alternate version of the song – including an added bridge – on the final leg of The Lonely Hearts Club Tour as well as on Conan.
