Solution:


Recognize that only declarative statements have a truth value.
Don't make a declarative statement; that way it won't be the truth or a lie.
Here are three possibilities:

[1] Remain silent. - or if you must say something, ask a question
[2] Why do you want to kill me? - or exclaim something:
[3] No! Please do not kill me!
