Everybody Lies
Fiction Plane Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can't feel the warmth from the gestures that are false
The hand feeds me stabs me from behind
As the blade inches in you don't even begin
To think that I'd be one to do the same
We're all alone and there is only one throne
So come on tell me that you really are my friend

You hold me a story that I told
Who wouldn't trust a person if they said it was true
You believe when I'm thinking that you lie
Because I do all the time and so does everybody else

I can't feel the warmth from the gestures that are false
The hand feeds me stabs me from behind




I found myself lost on a straight and narrow course
If you can't see it then you must be blind

Overall Meaning

In Fiction Plane's song "Everybody Lies," the lyrics address the concept of friendship and the ways in which people can be false, deceptive, and untrustworthy. The singer of the song expresses frustration and disappointment with individuals who claim to be friends but ultimately turn out to be insincere or even actively harmful. The opening lines, "I can't feel the warmth from the gestures that are false / The hand feeds me stabs me from behind," suggest that there are people in the singer's life who pretend to be kind and supportive but are actually working against him.


As the song progresses, the lyrics become more pointed in their critique of dishonesty and betrayal. The lines "You hold me a story that I told / Who wouldn't trust a person if they said it was true / You believe when I'm thinking that you lie" highlight the fact that even when people tell the truth, there is often doubt and suspicion surrounding their words. The final lines, "I found myself lost on a straight and narrow course / If you can't see it then you must be blind," imply that the singer has had to navigate difficult and uncertain situations alone, without the guidance or support of those who claim to be friends.


Overall, Fiction Plane's "Everybody Lies" is a powerful exploration of the complex and often fraught nature of human relationships. The lyrics provide a hard-hitting critique of deception and falsehood, while also highlighting the need for trust, honesty, and genuine connection.


Line by Line Meaning

I can't feel the warmth from the gestures that are false
I can't feel comfort from insincere actions


The hand feeds me stabs me from behind
You act friendly but then hurt me secretly


As the blade inches in you don't even begin
You hurt me without even realizing it


To think that I'd be one to do the same
You don't think I would hurt you too


We're all alone and there is only one throne
We all strive for power and control


So come on tell me that you really are my friend
Prove to me that our friendship is genuine


You hold me a story that I told
You remind me of things I've said in the past


Who wouldn't trust a person if they said it was true
It's natural to believe someone who sounds truthful


You believe when I'm thinking that you lie
I doubt your honesty despite your belief in mine


Because I do all the time and so does everybody else
I lie frequently and so do you and everyone else


I found myself lost on a straight and narrow course
I'm confused and unsure about the right path


If you can't see it then you must be blind
If you can't understand my perspective, you lack insight
