The Lie is a political and social criticism poem probably written by Sir Walter Raleigh circa 1592. Speaking in the imperative mood throughout, he commands his soul to go "upon a thankless errand" and tell various people and organizations of their misdeeds and wrongdoings. And if they object, Raleigh commands, publicly accuse them to be lying, or "give them the li. To "give the lie" was a common phrase in Raleigh's time of writing.
The incredible sadness that permeates the whole album is relatively unique, including the abandon with which Küchen is willing to expose his own feelings in what some might call brutally sentimental. I have tried to find comparable voices, but I get no further than Frank London's "Invocations" or Lou Reed's "Berlin", but the former is more spiritual and the second more personal, yet the common denominator is the infinite sadness and powerlessness of the individual. A stellar achievement.
