Liar

Album: So Far, So Good... So What? (1988)
  • You take great pride in never having lived up to anything
    Lie, steal, cheat and kill, a real bad guy
    Your daddy is a wino and you mommy's quite insane
    From altar boy to sewer rat, you don't give a damn
    You're sister is a junkie, gets "it" any way she can
    Your brother's a gay singer in a stud leather band
    Your girlfriend's got herpes to go with your Hep and AIDS
    There ain't one person you know you ain't ripped off yet
    Look deep in the mirror, look deep into its eye
    Your face is replaced, as creature you despise
    But I know what you're made of, it ain't much I'm afraid
    I know you'll be lying until your dying day
    Make up your stories, the truth's so hard to say
    Brain is numb and your tongue will surely dig your grave
    Your mind is sickly from Alzheimer's disease
    And decadence and debauchery killed your memories
    You're a liar, liar, liar, everyone can see
    Liar, liar, it's all you'll ever be
    Liar, liar, liar, it's what you mean to me
    Liar, liar, lies...
    Start trouble, spread pain
    Piss and venom in your veins
    Talk nasty, breathe fire
    Smell rotten, you're a liar
    Sweat liquor, breathe snot
    Eat garbage, spit blood
    Diseased, health hazard
    Scum bag, filthy bastard
    Greasy face, teeth decay
    Hair matted, drunk all day
    Absessed, sunken veins
    Rot gut, scrambled brain
    Steal money, crash cars
    Rob jewelry, hock guitars
    Rot in Hell, it's time you know
    To your master, off you go
    You're a liar, a fucking liar!
    Filthy liar, liar!
    You fucking liar, liar!

  • Russell from London Ontario Canadawell it is what Chris Poland and Jimmy DeGrasso did to Dave and Dave, they basically were bigger and worst drug addicts and literally pawned off most of Dave and Dave's gear to buy more drugs and never admitted to their deceptive actions. I would be very pissed as well if my band mates went behind my back and pawned my equipment. True Story!!
  • Mat from Houston, TxWhat did Chris Poland DO to Dave that made him so angry?
  • Derek from Flin Flon, Mbpossibly the best song describing hatred for a liar
  • Whiplash from Glendale, NyWell I honestly have no idea but i think we can all agree. Dave Mustaine is a epic singer and songwriter!
  • Justin from Tempe, AzThis song is nuts, especially the part where Dave spits out a dozen lyrics in the span of just about thirty seconds. I'm curious, though, why Spencer thinks Dave is the liar. He didn't try to sell the band's gear for drugs, did he?
  • Spencer from Mcbride, CanadaDave mustaine is a great guitarist, but in my view he himself is the liar.
