about

Liam wrote this song in 2007, so it's been sitting for quite a while.

lyrics

Vernon's name was death and hell followed with him along
as he died in his proclaimed gasoline ecstasy there
and he vaporized into the air

don't want your 15th wife or the 15 years of her life
as she cries in your most shameful, nastiest ecstasy here
want's not a reason to care

Vernon tempted fate as he tilted his head back and laughed
friend have mercy here he knew he'd never be jailed
plots for his silence had failed

in a sanctuary for scum he's protecting with guns
ah, fuck off in your bunker we're coming for you anyway
not for your genius we're coming to take the guns away
not for your conquest we're coming to take the kids away
not for your genius we're coming to blow your house away
not for your centuries we're coming out to make them end today
don't worry we'll find out what's wrong with you
