Lie can also be used when we wanna talk about position. It can sound a little bit strange at first because we often see this word as the opposite of "true".
"Lie (verb) - If something lies in a particular place, position, condition, or direction it is in that place, position, condition, or direction.
Ex: The river lies 40 miles to the south of us."
It was taken from the website http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dict ... ie_1?q=lie
Another example is: Brazil lies in South America.
