From a progressive rock fan's point of view, "The Lady Lies" is certainly the most exciting song on Genesis' And Then There Were Three. An allegory on a woman's power over a man, it tells the story of a knight who is lured by a demon lady to her house and enters, never to leave again. The song is written in a fast 12/8 time signature which feels like an even faster 3/4 at times. It is driven by a relentless and bouncy rhythm section reminiscent of old Genesis favorites, including a busy bass line.
