    Two Words I Do Not Understand

    Hello,

    Below words are from a song. I understand all ofthem but I cannot find what does 'Станет' and 'лжи' mean. Could you please tell me ? Best.

    Это мое увлечение. Станет, увы, заключением чьей-то лжи. Танцуй, дыши
    Иди и учи русский!

    This is my passion. It'll become (станет) alas (увы) a result (заключением) of someone's lies. Dance, breathe...

    I think so, but the word is really tricky.
    I can't say 100% what it means here. Maxim's texts are so trashy even with a good rhythm and melody.

    The word заключение:
    ending
    conclusion
    imprisonment
    signing (of a contract)
    pronouncement (marriage)
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.
