    Favorite Lyrics

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Forsaken, Jan 7, 2007.

    I'd like to take the "What are you listening to" thread a bit farther and find out what kind of lyrics strike you most.

    Mine are from Mnemic - Ghost

    "Don't want this
    It's true what they say
    Ignorance is bliss
    I'll find another way
    In my mind
    It's all good now
    Don't do things
    thats abnormal
    They'll take me
    and lock me away
    Listen to me
    when I tell you:
    I'm not insane."

    Radiohead's "Street Spirit (Fade Out)"


    Rows of houses are bearing down on me
    I can feel their blue hands touching me
    All these things into position
    all these things are one to swallow whole

    And fade out again and fade out

    This machine will not communicate
    these thoughts and the strain I am under
    Be the war child from the circle, before we all go under

    And fade out again and fade out again

    Cracked eggs, dead birds
    scream as they fight for life
    I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
    All these things into position
    all these things are one to swallow whole

    And fade out again and fade out again

    Immerse your soul in love
    Immerse your soul in love



    For anyone interested, here's a link to the music video on YouTube.

    Samson by Regina Spektor



    You are my sweetest downfall
    I loved you first, I loved you first
    Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
    I have to go, I have to go
    Your hair was long when we first met

    Samson went back to bed
    Not much hair left on his head
    He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
    And history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us
    And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

    You are my sweetest downfall
    I loved you first, I loved you first
    Beneath the stars came fallin' on our heads
    But they're just old light, they're just old light
    Your hair was long when we first met

    Samson came to my bed
    Told me that my hair was red
    Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
    Oh I cut his hair myself one night
    A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
    And he told me that I'd done alright
    and kissed me 'til the mornin' light, the mornin' light
    and he kissed me 'til the mornin' light

    Samson went back to bed
    not much hair left on his head
    Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
    Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
    Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
    And history books forgot about us
    And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

    You are my sweetest downfall
    I loved you first

    My favourite song/lyrics at the moment is "Butterflies And Hurricanes" by Muse:

    change,
    everything you are
    and everything you were
    your number has been called
    fights, battles have begun
    revenge will surely come
    your hard times are ahead

    best,
    you've got to be the best
    you've got to change the world
    and you use this chance to be heard
    your time is now​

    'defence is paper-thin, just
    one touch and I'll be in, too
    deep now
    to ever swim
    against the current.
    so let me slip away.'

    South of heaven.

    An unforseen future nestled somewhere in time.
    Unsuspecting victims no warnings, no signs.
    Judgment day the second coming arrives.
    Before you see the light you must die.

    Forgotten children, conform a new faith,
    Avidity and lust controlled by hate.
    (The) Never ending search for your shattered sanity,
    Souls of Damnation in their own reality.

    Chaos rampant,
    An age of distrust.
    Confrontations.
    Impulsive habitat.

    Bastard sons bagat your cunting daughters,
    Promiscuous mothers with your incestuous fathers.
    Engreat souls condemned for eternity,
    Sustained by immoral observance a domineering deity.

    Chaos rampant,
    An age of distrust.
    Confrontations.
    Impulsive sabbath.

    On and on, south of heaven [x 4]

    [LEAD: KING]

    The root of all evil is the heart of a black soul.
    A force that has lived all eternity.
    A never ending search for a truth never told.
    The loss of all hope and your dignity.

    Chaos rampant,
    An age of distrust.
    Confrontations.
    Impulsive habitat.

    On and on, south of heaven [x 4]

    Oh em gee
    Uh
    I have no idea. I enjoy pop punk lyrics, very clever and catchy(good ones anyway) eg: Brand New.
    I like pink floyd/prog metal lyrics. And yeah.

    Brand New - Jude Law And A Semester Abroad

    Whatever poison's in this bottle will leave me broken sore and stiff.
    But it's the genie at the bottom who I'm sucking at. He owes me one last wish.
    So here's a present to let you know I still exist.
    I hope the next boy that you kiss has something terribly contagious on his lips.

    But I got a plan (I got a plan)
    Drink (drift) for forty days and forty nights.
    A sip for every second-hand tick.
    And for every time you fed me the line, "you mean so much to me...".
    I'm without you.

    [Chorus x2]
    So tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states.
    The American boy you used to date.
    Who would do anything you say.

    (And even if her plane)
    And even if her plane crashes tonight she'll find some way to disappoint me,
    by not burning in the wreckage, or drowning at the bottom of the sea.
    "Jess, I still taste you, thus reserve my right to hate you."
    And all this empty space that you create does nothing for my flawless sense of style.

    It's 8:45 (it's 8:45). The weather is getting better by the hour.
    (Rains all the time) I hope it rains there all the time.
    And if you ever said you miss me then don't say you never lied.
    I'm without you.

    [Chorus x2]
    So tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states.
    The American boy you used to date.
    Who would do anything you say.

    Who would do anything you say

    Never gonna get it right, you're never gonna get it [x7]

    [x2 (previous singing continues in the background)]
    No more songs about you
    After this one, I am done
    You are, you are, you're gone

    [Chorus x2 (previous singing continues in the background)]
    So tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states.
    The American boy you used to date.
    Who would do anything you say.

    So turn,
    Up the corners of your lips
    Part them and feel my fingertips
    Trace the moment for forever

    Vindicated - Dashboard Confessional

    Look at the stars,
    Look how they shine for you,
    And everything you do.
    .....
    I came along,
    I wrote a song for you,
    And everything you do.

    One sound, one single sound
    One kiss, one single kiss
    A face outside the window pane
    However did it come to this?

    A man who ran, a child who cried
    A girl who heard, a voice that lied
    The sun that burned a fiery red
    The vision of an empty bed

    The use of force, he was so tough
    She'll soon submit, she's had enough
    The march of fate, the broken will
    Someone is lying very still

    He has laughed and he has cried
    He has fought and he has died
    He's just the same as all the rest
    He's not the worst, he's not the best

    And still this ceaseless murmuring
    The babbling that i brook
    The seas of faces, eyes upraised
    The empty screen, the vacant look

    A man in black on a snow white horse,
    A pointless life has run its course,
    The red rimmed eyes, the tears still run
    As he fades into the setting sun

    M: you're going on that plane to take you where you belong.
    W: but no, i have...
    M: you have got to listen to me. do you have any idea what
    You have to look forward to if you stay here? nine chances out of 10 we both end up in a concentration camp and that....
    W: you're only saying these things to make me go.
    M: i'm saying it 'cause it's true. inside us, we both know we belong in different......
    ....maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life.
    W: but what about us?
    But what about us?
    But what about us?

    in the middle of the madness
    they can stretch me out like canvas
    I won't ever fit their frame.

    Another Space Song - Failure

    The solar panel's shining face
    Is smiling back on me
    Twisting off into the sun
    It's okay to be lonely

    All my missions float away
    I never trained too hard
    I'm so caught up in the tree of stars
    Falling in my backyard

    She'll always be what I can't find
    She'll always be where I break down
    She'll always hide behind a star
    I'll always dream she can't be far

    I've got no Houston to whine down to
    I've got no protocol
    Gravity's so far away
    Wrapped on that shrinking ball

    I eclipsed my memories
    Sleeping inside this pod
    Patient time will carry me
    On her back without a sigh

    And I won't let her down
    My soul is celestial-bound
    And if I'm never found
    She'll always be

    She'll always be what I can't find
    She'll always be where I break down
    She'll always hide behind a star
    I'll always dream she can't be far
