The Artist

from by Visc.



I had a lot of fun with this song -- probably a little too much fun.
'The Artist' is about the occasional fib-telling, but exaggerated in the classic Visc way. Almost every part of the song changes drastically, and my vocal line gets a teeny bit silly at times. I wanted the song to kind of reflect someone changing their story a lot, since liars often have to pivot to the truth to make their tale a bit more believable.

Anyways, the song kind of talks about the fear that you live with when you tell a lie. Maybe you can't relate, dear reader, but I know there have been a few times in the past that I've told a lie, even a small lie, and then spent days worrying that I would be exposed as a filthy liar.

I promise I don't lie as much as the song says (or do I?!).



I weave words I'm a busy little spider
ooh like a trail of crumbs they lead you to
my perfectly thought out and executed little lie lie

I'm a wordsmith, I plan every single move I ever make
but I don't sleep, I hardly take a break
I fear that they'll catch on, and look into my eyes
and see lies

it's an art, adding color to sheets of gray
without a lie, what would an average man display?
I'm an artist, a con-artist, I'm so damn dishonest
I've gone off of the road
I've gone off of the road
I've gone off of the road
he's gone off of the road

a thousand pounds has made it hard to breathe
and even harder to believe I swear it's worse than it seems

it's been so long, I've forgotten the things I've said
the way of life has left me on a precipice
I may jump off, the landing could be soft
or I could fall to my death
I'll probably fall to my death

he's gonna tell a lie
he's gonna tell a lie
he's gonna tell a lie
he's gonna tell a lie

he's gonna do it
gonna lie again
a lying tongue on one hell of a man
he's gonna do it
gonna lie again
a liar liar fucking piece of shit man
