"Lies" is the third song on the second studio album by Marina and the Diamonds, called Electra Heart. On July 17th, 2013, a music video was released for the song as the tenth part of the Archetypes video series.

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.[1]

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.
