I lie, you lie, he/she/it lies, we lie, you (pl) lie, they lie.

past tense & participle are the only difference:

I lay bleeding in the pile of broken glass.
I lied to the cop.

I have lain in my own vomit more than once.
I have lied to potential employers to avoid unwanted scrutiny.

edit: gerund of both is "lying":
lying in a pool of human waste can be surprisingly "cleansing".
lying to a federal judge should be carefully considered.
