    What are the best song lyrics that you have ever heard?

    Post them on here, so we can see what moves you...

    One of my favorites:

    There's a shadow just behind me/shrouding every step I take/making every promise empty/pointing every finger at me
    Waiting like a stalking butler/who upon the finger rests/murder now the path called must we/just because the son has come
    Jesus won't you f***ing whistle/something 'bout the past and done/Jesus won't you f***ing whistle something 'bout the past and done
    Why can't we not be sober/just want to start things over/why can't we sleep forever/just want to start this over
    I am just a worthless liar/I am just an imbecile/I will only complicate you/trust in me and fall as well/I will find a center in you/I will chew it up and leave/I will work to elevate you/just enough to bring you down
    Mother Mary won't you whisper/something 'bout the past and done/Mother Mary won't you whisper/something 'bout the past and done
    Why can't we not be sober/just want to start things over/why can't we drink forever/just want to start this over
    I am just a worthless liar/I am just an imbecile/I will only complicate you/trust in me and fall as well/I will find a center in you/I will chew it up and leave
    trust me/trust me/trust me/trust me
    why can't we not be sober/just want to start things over/why can't we sleep forever/just want to start this over
    I want what I want/I want what I want/I want what I want/I want what I want

    "sober" by TOOL
    I've walked these streets, a loaded six-string on my back, I play for keeps 'cause I might not make it back, I've been everywhere still I'm standin' tall, I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all!!:salute!:

    WAR- Bob Marley

    Until the philosophy which holds one race
    Superior and another inferior
    Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
    Everywhere is war, me say war

    That until there is no longer first class
    And second class citizens of any nation
    Until the colour of a man's skin
    Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
    Me say war

    That until the basic human rights are equally
    Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
    Dis a war

    That until that day
    The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
    Rule of international morality
    Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
    To be pursued, but never attained
    Now everywhere is war, war

    And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
    That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
    South Africa sub-human bondage
    Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
    Well, everywhere is war, me say war

    War in the east, war in the west
    War up north, war down south
    War, war, rumours of war

    And until that day, the African continent
    Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
    We find it necessary and we know we shall win
    As we are confident in the victory

    Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
    Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

      This song fits my life right now! It is the perfect lyric... (I'm not going to post the whole song, I just like this one line)

      The Professor- Damien Rice


      Loving is fine, if you have plenty of time
      For walking on stilts at the edge of your mind!

        Holiday - Green Day

        Hear the sound of the falling rain
        Coming down like an Armaggeddon flame
        The shame
        The ones who died without a name
        Hear the dogs howling out of key
        To a hymn called "Faith and Misery"
        And bleed the company lost the war today

        I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
        This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
        On holiday

        Hear the drum pounding out of time
        Another protester has crossed the line
        To find the money's on the other side
        Can I get another Amen?
        There's a flag wrapped around a score of men
        A gag
        A plastic bag on a monument

        The representative of California has the floor
        Zieg Heil to the President Gasman
        Bombs away is your punishment
        Pulverize the Eiffel Towers
        Who criticize your government
        Bang Bang goes the broken glass
        Kill all the f*gs that don't agree
        Trials by fire setting fires
        Is not a way thats meant for me
        Just cause - just cause we're outlaws yeah!

        I begg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
        This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
        This is our lives on holiday
        There's more to life than the Denver Broncos. Let me know when you find it.

        Hear the dogs howling out of key, to a hymn called 'Faith and Misery' - Green Day

        "If I can not bend heaven, I shall move Hell." - Vergil (Aeneid VII)

          Deftones -- Lhabia

          Somewhere outside there are tricks and evil,
          Holler downstairs while I drive.

          I make a plan just to get you back,
          You're bored doing what a girl does.
          I want to watch you think,
          Think again deep within.
          Keep it deep inside while I serenade buttercup,
          And it's a bad curse and what you need to do is burn again and bow slow again.
          And how we'll do it again and again to make the best of a simple thing,
          To be like this bound coming through the fog.

          Dying of bordom I'll try it all,
          Sixteen olive, skin bound by a voice.

          I bleed within like the girl that can make them turn,
          Don't want to go but I want it.
          Too much blood to my stomache its because it's sick,
          Pass by you -- break the bands between us.
          I can dare to go but I'd never.
          What you're scared to do is what you get,
          It's never what you want to get.
          Now to pray, your sigh is over like a doped drug like a voice,
          Well at least you ****ing care.

          Dying of bordom I'll try it all,
          I'll feel faint like a crook.

          God it looks and feels great but look at what its doing to you,
          That's okay cause look at how it feels.
          Goodbye -- Goodbye -- Goodbye.

          Burning down it starts to stir again,
          ****ing heretic I've opened up this for me.
          Like to stare up? I'll stack the bricks down.
          Hurt you doing much working around too,
          I can punch it through.
          But the hair sticks, don't want to hurt you -- just want to **** you.
          I'm out of time so I'll let you rest some,
          I'll rely on me and still you will be fine.

          Dying of bordom I'll try it all,
          I'll feel faint like a crook.

          God it looks and feels great but look at what its doing to you,
          That's okay cause look at how it feels.

          Sorry if the lyrics offend you, didn't mean to make it a big deal -- they're very dark, but it's one of my favorite songs of all-time so I had to put it up here.

            A Perfect Circle - Judith

            You're such an inspiration for the ways
            That I'll never ever choose to be
            Oh so many ways for me to show you
            How the savior has abandoned you
            (F**k/Thank) your God
            Your Lord, your Christ
            He did this
            Took all you had and
            Left you this way
            Still you pray, you never stray
            Never taste of the fruit
            You never thought to question why

            It's not like you killed someone
            It's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
            Praise the one who left you
            Broken down and paralyzed
            He did it all for you
            He did it all for you

            Oh so many many ways for me to show you
            How your dogma has abandoned you
            Pray to your Christ, to your god
            Never taste of the fruit
            Never stray, never break
            Never---choke on a lie
            Even though he's the one who did this to you
            You never thought to question why

            It's Not like you killed someone
            It's Not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
            Talk to Jesus Christ
            As if he knows the reasons why
            He did it all for you
            Did it all for you
            He did it all for you



            As to the profanity, it has also been written as "thank", so if you dont like profanity, thats what its saying

            Superintendent Chalmers: "Thank the Lord"? That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don't have a place within an organized religion."

              STORY OF MY LIFE by SOCIAL DISTORTION

              High school seemed like such a blur,
              I didn't have much interest in sports or
              School elections.
              And in class I dreamed all day,
              About a rock 'n' roll weekend.
              And the girl in the front of the room, so close yet so far y'know she never seemed
              To notice
              That this silly school-boy crush
              Wasn't just pretend.
              chorus:
              Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
              Close your eyes and then it's past;
              (It's the) Story of my life.
              And I went down to my old neighborhood,
              The faces have all changed, there's no one left to talk to.
              And the pool hall I loved as a kid
              Is now a Seven Eleven.
              I went downtown to look for a job,
              I had no training, no experience to speak of.
              I looked at the holes in my jeans
              And turned and headed back.
              chorus:
              Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right.
              Close your eyes and then it's past;
              (It's the) Story of my life.
              Good times come and good times go,
              I only wish the good times would last a
              Little longer.
              I think about the good times we had
              And why they had to end.
              So I sit at the edge of my bed,
              I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw
              love song.
              Wonderin' bout what you're doin' now
              And when you're comin' back.
              "It's okay to be a cliche....Everything under the sun has been done."

                Afternoon Delight
                ( Starland Vocal Band )

                Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
                Gonna grab some afternoon delight
                My motto's always been 'when it's right, it's right'
                Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?
                When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
                And we know the night is always gonna be there any way

                Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
                Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
                Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
                And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
                Sky rockets in flight
                Afternoon delight
                Afternoon delight
                Afternoon delight

                Started out this morning feeling so polite
                I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite
                But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might try nibbling
                A little afternoon delight
                Sky rockets in flight
                Afternoon delight
                Afternoon delight
                Afternoon delight

                Please be waiting for me, baby, when I come around
                We could make a lot of lovin' 'for the sun goes down

                Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
                Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
                Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
                And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
                Sky rockets in flight
                Afternoon delight
                Afternoon delight
                Afternoon delight

                Afternoon delight!

                  Wow these are great! Thanks Broncology for putting a Deftones tune up here. their lyrics are the best.

                  Something has to change/an undeniable dillema/boredemn no a burden anyone should bear/
                  Constant over-stimulation numbs me/but I wouldn't want you any other way
                  It's not enough/I need more/nothing seems to satisfy/I don't want it/I just need it/To breath to feel to know I'm alive
                  Finger deep within the border-line/tell me that you love me and that we belong together/relax turn around and take my hand
                  Love can help you change tired moments into pleasure/say the word and we'll be well upon our way/A blend and balance of pain and comfort deep within you/'till you will not want me any other way
                  It's not enough/I need more/Nothing seems to satisfy/I don't want it/I just need it/To breath to feel to know I'm alive
                  Knuckle deep inside the border-line/This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to/relax turn away
                  There's something kind of sad about the way that things have come to be/desensitized to everything/what became of subtlety
                  But how could this mean anything to me/when I don't feel a thing at all/yet, but I'll keep digging/ 'till I feel something
                  Elbow deep within the border-line/show me that you love me and that we belong together/shoulder deep within the border-line/relax turn around and take my hand

                    Immortal Technique Leaving the past

                    [Verse 1]
                    They told me I would never make it, I would never achieve it
                    Reality is nurishment, but people don't believe it
                    I guess its hard to stomach the truth like a bulimick
                    its a dirty game and nobody is willing to clean it
                    But this is for the paralygics, people dreamin' of runnin'
                    ladies married to men who dont please 'em, dreamin' of comin'
                    urbanly murderous like David Berkowitz when I'm gunnin'
                    Some cowards on the internet didn't think I would sell
                    scared to talk **** in person, cuz they stuck in a shell
                    and couldn't understand the pain of being stuck in a cell
                    Hell is not a place you go, if you not a christian
                    it's the failure of your lifes greatest ambition
                    It's a bad decision to blindly follow any religion
                    I don't see the difference in between the raw and the wrong
                    Soldiers emptyin' the clips at little kids and they moms
                    I'm just like a desperate mother****er strapped to a bomb
                    Humanity is gone, smoked up in a gravity bong
                    by a democrat republican Cheech and Chong
                    Immortal Technique, you never heard me preachin' a song
                    I'm not controversial, I'm just speakin' the facts
                    Put your hands in the air like you got the heat to your back
                    and shake your body like a baby born addicted to crack
                    And since life is a gamble like the crabstables at Vegas
                    I freestyle my destiny, it's not written in pages

                    [Verse 2]
                    I hate it when they tell us how far we came to be
                    as if our peoples history started with slavery
                    Painfully I discovered the **** they kept us secret
                    this is the exodus like the black jews out of Egypt
                    I keep it reality based wit the music I make
                    brought the truth to your face with the style I run wit

                      Queen - "You Take My Breath Away"

                      Look into my eyes and you’ll see I’m the only one
                      You’ve captured my love
                      Stolen my heart
                      Changed my life
                      Every time you make a move you destroy my mind
                      And the way you touch
                      I lose control and shiver........deep inside
                      You take my breath away

                      You can reduce me to tears with a single sigh
                      Ev’ry breath that you take
                      Any sound that you make is a whisper in my ear
                      I could give up all my life for just one kiss
                      I would surely die if you dismiss me from your love
                      You take my breath away

                      So please don’t go
                      Don’t leave me here all by myself
                      I get ever so lonely from time to time
                      I will find you anywhere you go
                      I’ll be right behind you
                      Right until the ends of the earth
                      I’ll get no sleep until I find you
                      To tell you that you just take my breath away

                      (solo)


                      I will find you anywhere you go
                      Right until the ends of the earth
                      I’ll get no sleep until I find you
                      To tell you when I’ve found you
                      I love you

                      Take my breath take my breath ... away

                      Everybody's gotta elevate from the norm...

                        Thats how I feel, Im down and out, the pains so real
                        Cut off at the pass, nowhere to go, fading so fast
                        Once a shining star, a fall from grace, lights seem so far
                        away, from where i was, the place to be, all lost because
                        I over stepped my bounds, who was I to reach, Now im making rounds
                        with nowhere to go, friends all lost, just people seldom known
                        But as i try to hold, few that i have, just repeatedly told
                        Im just not tough, lacking all the skills, Ive finally had enough

                        So I snap,
                        Breakdown,
                        They say the sky is the limit
                        but Im shackled to the ground
                        I step back
                        I look around
                        Dont like what I see
                        Rip my chains from the ground
                        Take off
                        Until the end
                        F*ck being held back
                        It won't ever happen again
                        Because I've snapped

                        Left out in the cold, battered and bruised, this hand ready to fold
                        good times pass so fast, shadows linger on, seperated from the past
                        No family to be turned, through the years, all bridges burned
                        Attempt to recollect, all my thoughts, just cant connect
                        to memories past stored, just wonder on, venturing toward
                        a future unknown, feather in the wind, just being blown
                        well of the common track, society's ideals, this deck is stacked
                        Cant take anymore, prepared to die, I prepare for war

                        So I snap,
                        Breakdown,
                        They say the sky was is limit
                        but Im shackled to the ground

                        It... wont... ever...

                          I've walked these streets, a loaded six-string on my back, I play for keeps 'cause I might not make it back, I've been everywhere still I'm standin' tall, I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all!!:salute!:

                            Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - METALLICA

                            Welcome to where time stands still
                            no one leaves and no one will
                            Moon is full, never seems to change
                            just labeled mentally deranged
                            Dream the same thing every night
                            I see our freedom in my sight
                            No locked doors, No windows barred
                            No things to make my brain seem scarred

                            Sleep my friend and you will see
                            that dream is my reality
                            They keep me locked up in this cage
                            can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

                            Sanitarium, leave me be
                            Sanitarium, just leave me alone

                            Build my fear of what's out there
                            and cannot breathe the open air
                            Whisper things into my brain
                            assuring me that I'm insane
                            They think our heads are in their hands
                            but violent use brings violent plans
                            Keep him tied, it makes him well
                            he's getting better, can't you tell?


                            No more can they keep us in
                            Listen, damn it, we will win
                            They see it right, they see it well
                            but they think this saves us from our Hell

                            Sanitarium, leave me be
                            Sanitarium, just leave me alone
                            Sanitarium, just leave me alone

                            Fear of living on
                            natives getting restless now
                            Mutiny in the air
                            got some death to do
                            Mirror stares back hard
                            Kill, it's such a friendly word
                            seems the only way
                            for reaching out again.


                            Disposable Heroes - METALLICA

                            Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
                            No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
                            running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
                            Victim of what said should be
                            a servant `til I fall

                            Soldier boy, made of clay
                            now an empty shell
                            twenty one, only son
                            but he served us well
                            Bred to kill, not to care
                            just do as we say
                            finished here, Greeting Death
                            he's yours to take away

                            Back to the front
                            you will do what I say, when I say
                            Back to the front
                            you will die when I say, you must die
                            Back to the front
                            you coward
                            you servant
                            you blindman

                            Barking of machinegun fire, does nothing to me now
                            sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
                            More a man, more stripes you bare, glory seeker trends
                            bodies fill the fields I see
                            the slaughter never ends

                            Soldier boy, made of clay
                            now an empty shell
                            twenty one, only son
                            but he served us well
                            Bred to kill, not to care
                            just do as we say

                            he's yours to take away

                            Back to the front
                            you will do what I say, when I say
                            Back to the front
                            you will die when I say, you must die
                            Back to the front
                            you coward
                            you servant
                            you blindman

                            Why, Am I dying?
                            Kill, have no fear
                            Lie, live off lying
                            Hell, Hell is here


                            I was born for dying

                            Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
                            had no chance to see myself, moulded day by day
                            Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
                            left to die with only friend
                            Alone I clench my gun

                            Soldier boy, made of clay
                            now an empty shell
                            twenty one, only son
                            but he served us well
                            Bred to kill, not to care
                            just do as we say

                            he's yours to take away

                            Back to the front
                            you will do what I say, when I say
                            Back to the front
                            you will die when I say, you must die
                            Back to the front

                              --- all along the watchtower ---

                              "There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief
                              "There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief
                              Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
                              None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

                              "No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke
                              "There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
                              But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate
                              So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late".

                              All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
                              While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

                              Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
                              Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.
