In Their Words: "If the listener isn't careful, he or she is liable to think 'Oh! You Lied' is uplifting. That's why it's one of my favorite songs from our new EP. It's one of those 'happy-sad' songs, where the music bounces along, all major chords and melodies, but, when you listen to the lyrics, you realize the song is about a devastated, betrayed, and confused narrator. All in all, it's pretty heartbreaking. Even more so, I think, because that realization comes at you by surprise. Sad lyrics over sad chords are one thing; sad lyrics over happy chords are another thing altogether." -- Guitarist Robbie Horlick
