One night I had a vision That the world was taken over By a race of dirty filthy birds I dropped to my knees And I begged for mercy But they never understood a word No I was never heard -or- I gave you my heart I gave you my soul Now I'm just another number at the center for disease control Feels like a fire down below -or- Three two one I'm the bomb And I'm ready to go off in your shit All courtesy of Electric Six.

The Smiths!!!
"Some girls are bigger than others
Some girls are bigger than others
Some girl's mothers are bigger than
Other girl's mothers"

also by The Smiths...

"I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Oh, of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

There's a club, if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home, and you cry
And you want to die"
(I suppose Morrissey's delivery is really what makes them special)

Manic Street Preachers:
Culture sucks down words
Itemise loathing and feed yourself smiles
Organise your safe tribal war
Hurt maim kill and enslave the ghetto

Each day living out a lie
Life sold cheaply forever, ever, ever

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

Life lies a slow suicide
Orthodox dreams and symbolic myths
From feudal serf to spender
This wonderful world of purchase power

Just like lungs sucking on air
Survivals natural as sorrow, sorrow, sorrow

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

All we want from you are the kicks you've given us

Drive away and its the same
Everywhere death row, everyones a victim
Your joys are counterfeit
This happiness corrupt political shit

Living life like a comatose
Ego loaded and swallow, swallow, swallow

Hem - Dance With Me (not really just the lyrics, but the song as a total work) Dance with me, now darling - make me late I've been hanging 'round this barroom, and I can wait I can wait, now darling, don't you know Dance with me, now darling, sweet and slow I've been here in the corner, playing it cool But I could hang off your shoulder like a fool Like a fool, now darling, all night long Dance with me, now darling, to this song Take me home in a big car - drive it slow And if we turned off the highway, who would know Who would know in the morning's yellow light Where these two lost lovers were last night

The Decemberists - A Cautionary Song There's a place your mother goes when everybody else is soundly sleeping Through the lights of beacon street And if you listen you can hear her weeping, She's weeping, cause the gentlemen are calling And the snow is softly falling on her petticoats. And she's standing in the harbour And she's waiting for the sailors in the jolly boat. See how they approach With dirty hands and trousers torn they grapple 'til she's safe within their keeping A gag is placed between her lips to keep her sorry tongue from any speaking, or screaming And they row her out to packets where the sailor's sorry racket calls for maidenhead And she's scarce above the gunwales when her clothes fall to a bundle and she's laid in bed on the upper deck And so she goes from ship to ship, her ankles clasped, her arms so rudely pinioned 'Til at last she's satisfied the lost of the marina's teeming minions, and their opinions And they tell her not to say a thing to cousin, kindred, kith or kin or she'll end up dead And they throw her thirty dollars and return her to the harbour where she goes to bed, and this is how your fed So be kind to your mother, though she may seem an awful bother, and the next time she tries to feed you collard greens, Remember what she does when you're asleep

I would include part 1 as well, but I didn't want to clutter up the thread.

Neutral Milk Hotel - Two headed boy, part 2

Daddy, please, hear this song that I sing
In your heart there's a spark that just screams
For a lover to bring
A child to your chest that could lay as you sleep
And love all you have left like your boy used to be
Long ago wrapped in sheets warm and wet

Blister, please, with those wings in your spine
Love to be with a brother of mine
How he'd love to find
Your tongue in his teeth, in a struggle to find
Secret songs that you keep wrapped in boxes so tight
Sounding only at night as you sleep

In my dreams you're alive and you're crying
As your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet
Rings of flowers around your eyes and I'll love you
For the rest of your life

Brother, see, we are one and the same
And you left with your head filled with flames
And you watched as your brains
Fell out through your teeth, push the pieces in place
Make your smile sweet to see, don't you take this away
I'm still wanting my face on your cheek

And when we break, we'll wait for our miracle
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies
And when we break, we'll wait for our miracle
God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life

Two headed boy, she is all you could need
She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires
And retire to sheets safe and clean
But don't hate her when she gets up to leave

I love television; anyway:

You know I'm born to lose,
and gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't wanna live for ever!

Ya'll should just write your favorite lines. These posts are too long.


Ali's a big teddybear
'till they scream "Stop slammin' the car door, that's my fucking head in there!"
Your teeth are everywhere
I'll serve your family and write about it in my journal like I'm Mr. Belvedere.

These problems I'm having all Of structure and dreaming of Of humans and animals and beautiful people The grass that we nurtured all When thoughts equal dreams and still These conflicts directed to the conquering people To be in a garden with a skyline perverted by You were my first day, my first day of silence We're marching a rat race all through the day Our hands on the home, head for home The science of driveways to captives

"Virtual Insanity" -- Jamiroquai

Oh yeah, what we're living in (let me tell ya)
It's a wonder man can eat at all
When things are big that should be small
Who can tell what magic spells we'll be doing for us
And I'm giving all my love to this world
Only to be told
I can't see
I can't breathe
No more will we be
And nothing's going to change the way we live
Cos' we can always take but never give
And now that things are changing for the worse,
See, its a crazy world we're living in
And I just can't see that half of us immersed in sin
Is all we have to give these -

Futures made of virtual insanity now
Always seem to, be govern'd by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh, now there is no sound - for we all live underground

And I'm thinking what a mess we're in
Hard to know where to begin
If I could slip the sickly ties that earthly man has made
And now every mother, can choose the colour
Of her child
That's not nature's way
Well that's what they said yesterday
There's nothing left to do but pray
I think it's time I found a new religion
Waoh - it's so insane
To synthesize another strain
There's something in these
Futures that we have to be told.

Futures made of virtual insanity - now
Always seem to, be govern'd by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh, now there is no sound - for we all live underground

Now there is no sound
If we all live underground
And now it's virtual insanity
Forget your virtual reality
Oh, there's nothing so bad.
I know yeah

Of this virtual insanity, we're livin in.
Has got to change, yeah
Things, will never be the same.
And I can't go on
While we're livin' in oh, oh virtual insanity
Oh, this world, has got to change
Cos I just, I just can't keep going on, it was virtual.
Virtual insanity that we're livin' in, that we're livin' in
That virtual insanity is what it is

Futures made of virtual insanity - now
Always seem to, be govern'd by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh, now there is no sound - for we all live underground

Living - Virtual Insanity
Living - Virtual Insanity
Living - Virtual Insanity
Living - Virtual Insanity

Virtual Insanity is what we're living in

"Milk Cow Boogie." I think Elvis was the first to popularize this song (forget who wrote it), but Levon Helm's version is the definitive one. Well, I woke up this morning, And I looked out the door. I can tell that old milk cow By the way she lowed. Hold it fellows, that don't move me. Let's get real, real gone for a change. Well, I woke up this morning And I looked out the door I can tell that that old milk cow I can tell the way she lowed. Well, if you've seen my milk cow, Please ride her on home. I ain't had no milk or butter Since that cow's been gone. Well, believe me, don't that sun look good going down? Well, believe me, don't that sun look good going down? Well, don't that old moon look lonesome When your baby's not around.

The Hold Steady -
In the bar light, she looked all right
In daylight, she looked desperate
That's all right I was desperate too

Jenny Lewis -
I went to a cobbler
To fix a hole in my shoe
He took one look at my face
And said, "I can fix that hole in you"
I beg your pardon
I'm not looking for a cure
Seen enough of my friends
In the depths of the godsick blues

The Old 97's -
I went through the motions with her
With her on top and me on liquor
Didn't do no good, well I didn't think it would

"your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
do you know you're unlike any other?
you'll always be my thunder

i said
your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
i don't wanna ever love another
you'll always be my thunder
so bring on the rain
and bring on the thunder."

thunder by boys like girls

damn good song following the summer after high school ended

The best song lyrics, in my opinion, are by far "what goes around" by Justin Timberlake.

The Love That You Left To Die by Metro Station

Would you still want to see me,
if you knew how i feel?
You claim you still love him,
I can't see how it's real.
We went out for just a drive,
it turned into the story of your life.

I've never met a girl as beautiful as you.
It may be a craze when we get over it soon.
I think if he loved you,
He'd never make you cry,
Then we both hugged,
and we said goodbye.
Goodbye.

Don't speak,
I'm dying cause I know it all.
Don't leave,
He's only gonna let you fall.
I'm here,
You know that you can have it all.
Take me,
I'm never gonna let you fall.

How's it feel, hurting all the time?
Tell me what it's like,
Putting up with all his lies.
Stick with me,
and we could leave this town.
Never look back,
It's part of the past now.
Past now.

Don't speak,
I'm dying cause I know it all.
Don't leave,
He's only gonna let you fall.
I'm here,
You know that you can have it all.
Take me,
I'm never gonna let you fall.
