    Turn off lies?

    Dear Forum Users,

    Does anybody know what Oceana means by 'running through the night' in the song Cry? Also, what does 'turning off her lies' mean?

    Thank you.

    Csika

    I imagine that she is a source of lies. Imagine her like a big machine that produces lies. Then imagine this machine turned off.

    Whether she stops or not is not given in the phrase "turning off her lies" which is not a declarative statement.
    "running through the night" could meaning "running for the duration of the night" or more likely, simply "running (somewhere) at night time".
