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.
