"Liar" as written by and Dave/ellefson Mustaine....
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!

    General CommentActually, I heard that this song was about Chris Poland, a former band member. He was fired because he stole all of Dave's guitars and sold them to get money for drugs.

    General CommentI always heard James kicked Dave's dog and Dave punched him in the face and James just told him it was the last straw with his alcohol and drug abuse. Kicked him out and Dave was pissed so he started Megadeth so he could make a heavier, bigger and better band than Metallica.

    Anyways, here's a quote from Dave in 1992 about Chris [Poland]:

    "Chris Poland - you know what? - he could die tomorrow and it wouldn't affect me... Chris has never made amends to me for stealing all my gear. I had a collector's item Echoplex which just disappeared, all sorts of guitars, which were all stolen to cash in for heroin. I'm willing to forgive and forget, but until he comes and makes amends with me then I'm not willing to give in."

    General CommentI love this song, Mustaine is my Hero! Its basically about Poland stealing his awesome equip for some heroin and said he never did it.

    I'm pretty sure this sparked a certain The Used song "Liar Liar (Burn in Hell)"
