And here comes another magical song....buckle up and enjoy the funky ride. Also loved the video editing, with its many winks and humorous style, great job! I see this song played live in the future.
Thank you again to the AV team ��

HOUSE OF LIES

I'm living in a house of lies
You're telling me about the truth
I'm looking straight into your eyes
But what's the use
Can you give me any proof

Truth's a garden, lies are king
Lies are all and everything
Truth is golden, lies are fair
Lies are rainbows in your hair
Truth's a once fantastic light,
Lies are shining in the night
Truth is fire from above,
Lies are you and lies are love

Just a little bit of your lies,
Just gimme your lies
Just a little bit of your lies
I wanna all of your lies
Just gimme abit of your lies
I want your funky lies
Gimme your little lies
Just gimme your lies, yeah yeah lies!
Just gimme your lies (suck it, baby!)

Venus de Milo, faster than light
Albert Einstein, infinite fight
Mona Lisa, the prettiest star
That's what you are
Can you give me any proof, oooooh!

I'm living in a house of lies
You're telling me about the truth
I'm looking straight into your eyes
But what's the use
Can you give me any proof
Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier

suck it, suck it up baby!

I just shared the Youtube video to House of lies on Facebook. It's getting likes from people who have never been Alphaville fans. My Dad's just shared it. My Dad. A folkie. Alternate reality!

This song is like old Alphaville track from 1996 - Life Is King. I hope, House Of Lies will be on some CD (maybe on new Dreamscapes XIII, XIV, XV and XVI or on new album ?).
Alphaville has so many wonderful tracks, but they exist in web only, unfortunattely.

Really sharp, witty tune! Musically rather simple but AMAZING vocals... Marian delivering one of his best performances to date. Also the instrumentation is very effective. Would be a lot of fun to hear this played with a Ska band! I love the parody on "life is king" it contains, thus subtly linking "lies" to "life" for those in the know. Quite an ear worm. And superb video, Tobi!


I prefer to walk with my own feet
I prefer to dance to my own beat
I prefer to sing my own song
I prefer to live - do you wanna come along?
