I don't get the spacing. I would put it all on one line:

lie lie fear

Barticus - I just wanted "Fear" to be in the middle of "Lies" but I didn't want to make it

Lies
Fear
Lies

So I added the dots..

Nice one! That was fun!

That is a really good one! I didn't look at the hint, and I didn' take the title into account. Without those clues, the "tower" arrangement and the dots and spacing just had me lost, cause it seemed that it must have something to do with lies being between fear, or I thought it wouldn't be between them.

I don't know, I like the suggestion above for one line, but is really an excellent teaser, an excellent concept, thanks!

Excellent Ex!!!!!

I'm with Barticus - there was not really a need for using 3 lines, nor for the spacing.
You could even have had it laid out:
FEAR LIES LIES
However, I guess your arrangement threw most of us off, so it was a good idea, after all!

I mean
FEAR LIE LIE

I never would have figured this out without the hint.

This was an exceptional 'true' rebus! I'm thrilled to see it on site! Fantastic job!

I like this type of teaser, good job. Had me stumped. I was seeing it as fear getting ahead of lies, like a race... I was way off.

Great, great! But of course it left me like DUH! I had something like lies create fear???? Even with the clue it went right over my old head, but I loved it. Going into my faves.

I thought lies lead to fear which leads to lies- a vicious circle!

The more common phrase is "paralyseD with fear". The "just ignore the dots" part didn't come through in the emailed Teaser of the Day. If you're supposed to ignore the dots, why include them in the first place?!?

That was a good one. Keep up the good work!

What hint, what dots? Fun rebus
katamaster*
Apr 22, 2009

This was a little bit tricky as fear was inside of the two lies so I thought that was also a clue.
emu77alu02us*
Apr 22, 2009

That was creative! Even though it looked so simple, I was stumped!
FatHeadAus*
Apr 22, 2009

Nice, but I would have thought "lie lie fear".

I usually have no problem with rebus teasers, but this was stumped me. Great job, I love it!! Thanks for posting.

Very good one, but what dots....and what hint....
I couldn't come up with the right answer, but it was very clever.
avonmaAus*
Apr 22, 2009

I guess it just went over my head, or was too complicated for my little pea brain...

Nice! But what dots?
Babe*
May 30, 2012

I did not see dots either and I agree with most that it should have been on one line.
iggy39Aus*

Thought it was fun and a good one too.
Liked it.

All I could think of was "Fear in between lies" as in lieing but then fearing you shouldnt have done it.
