Best Lyrics

Postby Jegzed » Mon Aug 05, 2002 10:59 am

So I'm sitting at work, bored to oblivion while waiting for my slow pc to recompile the project..

So what song do you listen to repeatedly just cause you really like the lyrics?

I kind of fancy listening to "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Stones..

<I>
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
</I>

Metallica's cover of "Stone Dead Forever", its my "big mob fight" music Image

<I>It's been a long time
It's been a long long wait
And you caught your fingers
In the pearly gates
You better leave your number
And we'll call you
You know your problem
Ain't exactly new

Your time has come today
Your face has turned to clay
What ever happened to your life?
Stone dead forever
That's right</I>

------------------
Just as soon as I belong/Then its time I disappear

man.....
there are so many good lyrics out there. i wouldnt even know where to start, and to me there is no "best" as there are so many songs representing so many different moods
great topic jegzed, i just like way to many songs to pick just one, heck i couldnt even narrow it down to 20 right now, i love music.
i would have to agree that Sympathy for the Devil is one of my favorite songs

One song? Uhh... Ok. That's tough. Something to get me up & going would either be Come Out Fighting by The Vandals, Badge of Pride by Pennywise, or Roots Radicals by Rancid.

I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore,
Before you take a swing, I wonder What are we fighting for,
When I say out loud, I want to get out of this, I wonder,
Is there anything I'm going to miss,
How's it going to be, When you don't know me,
How's it going to be, When you're sure I'm not there,
How's it going to be, When there is no one there to talk to about,
How it's going to be, 'Cause I don't care,
How's it going to be,
Where we used to laugh, There's a shouting match,
Sharp as a thumbnail scratch,
A silence I can't ignore,
Like . . The hammocks and the doorways we spent time in, Swing empty,
don't see lightning like last fall when it was always about to hit me,
I guess that is how it's going to be
How's it going to be
When you don't know me, any more
How's it going to be
Want to get myself back in again,
The soft dive of oblivion.
Want to taste the salt of your skin
The soft dive of oblivion

I know it might seem tired and overdone, but the lyrics to "American Pie" tell a story in symbolism about a turbulent period in American music.

In the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire the most
The father, son and the holy ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died

How many people actually know the stories behind the lyrics?

Actually, the most common intepretation is the Buddy Holly death. But Don McLean have always refused to comment what it is about.

I generally dislike all music of this sort, but this one song is pretty uplifting, and it brings back good memories with me and my transvestite best friend every time I hear it.

Salt N Pepa - I am the Body Beautiful

And where is the body
OOh yeah
Don't hate me cause I'm beautiful
And where is the body
Move over mother
'Cause I'm goin faster *faster*
Than you *than you*
Can drive *can drive*
The body's beautiful baby
That's right, I just can't help it, yeeah
It's not my fault, I was just born this way
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
Body beautiful
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
I am body beautiful
I'm up and comming
I am a child
I'm legendary, hey
I'm free and wild
I am the ocean
I rule the world
I'm sensual
I am body beautiful
My cha-cha pumps
I've got them on
And I work the runway, baby
All night long
I am the one *the only one*
There is no other
I am mother
I am body beautiful
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
Body beautiful
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
I am body beautiful
Lights, camera, action
Satisfaction guaranteed
That's what I need
I celebrate the body
And enjoy good health
And I get down with my bad self
It's all good from the front to the back
Two snaps and a platform with a body like that
It's a good damn thing I don't care what you say
I'm body beautiful, hey thats me
I am grand *grand diva*
I am the Queen *queen bee*
I masquarde *who am I*
I'm fantasy *whispers*
I am a house *the whole mansion*
Of elegance *whispers*
Featuring
I am body beautiful
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
Body beautiful
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
I am body beautiful
(Spoken Image
Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful
Everyone's beautiful in their own special way
Carry yourself like a Queen, and you will attract a King
Beauty comes from within
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe you will achieve
Do you believe that you are body beautiful? *Yes, YES! OOOHH YESS!*
There ain't enough words to express how I feel
I'm body beautiful true thats for real
Am who I am that's all I can be
Open up your mind so you're eyes can see
Body beautiful baby *work that body*
Body beautiful baby *work it, work it*
Body beautiful baby *work that body*
Body beautiful, that me
Now I'm gonna tell ya like this, and I'm gonna tell you this way
And my body's beautiful, that's all I'm sayin
Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes
You're too beautiful to realise it
Can't you see, the beauty in me
Open up your heart, and set your mind free
Everybody's beautiful in their own way
Express yourself everyday
When you got joy on the inside, it shows on the out
Be confident in your beautiful, without a doubt
You're absolutly GOR-geous, don'cha know?
So you got the body beautiful goin
Body beautiful baby *work that body*
Body beautiful baby *work it, work it*
Body beautiful baby *work that body*
Body beautiful, that me *I am body beautiful*
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
Body beautiful
Get with the B-E-A-U-T-Y
Beauty
The body is beautiful
I am body beautiful

A song *without* lyrics, more along my tastes, that really moves me is Halcyon by Orbital.

And every time I hear Stop the Rock by Apollo 440 I just wanna get up and dance :P

Day after day, love turns grey
Like the skin on the dying man.

And night after night, we pretend its alright,
But I have grown older, and you have grown colder...
and nothing is very much fun.... anymore....


And I can feel, one of my turns coming on....

And I feel, cold as a razor blade, tight as a tournaquet, dry as a funeral drum....

Run to the bedroom on the suitcase on the left you'll find my favorite axe...


Don't look so frightened, this is just a passing faze of one of my bad days...

Would you like to watch TV, or get between the sheets, or contemplate the silent freeway, would you like something to eat?

Would you like to learn to fly?

Would you like to see me try?

I prefer NIN, Korn, Staind, Linkin Park, and Adema when it comes to lyrics.

They bring me up when I'm depressed, kick me in the ass when I need it, calm me down when I'm angry..Whatever I need, the music does.

Well tell me can you heal what Father's done
Or fix this hole in a mother's son
Can you heal the broken worlds within
Can you strip away so we may start again
Tell me, can you heal what father's done
Or cut this rope and let us run
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me

just enough to bring you down.

hmm Lyrics..

Metallica Black, Misery, Nothing else matters, unforgiven..

Ballads mostly tho..
Heather alexander is a favorite.
--------------------------------------------
Don't tell a gypsy she has no heart
tho my eyes are dry when we needs must part
for the gift of love I will give you free
It will last forever between you and me

The road is wide and the sky is tall
and before I die I will see it all
and before I die I will see it all
Yes the road is wide and the sky is tall
and before I die i will see it all.

Don't tell a gypsy she has no soul
tho my path my tread where the heathens stroll
If you walk a day that is bright and fair
When you kiss the wind you will find me there.

The road is wide and the sky is tall
and before I die I will see it all
and before I die I will see it all
Yes the road is wide and the sky is tall
and before I die i will see it all.
---------------------------------------------


Then there is one most rpers may acctually be able to place.
---------------------------------------------
How dare you come to my home
And steal so savagly
What we would gladly give for free
If you were to ask

By suns the audacity,
To sieze me for you own
And drag me off to hills unknown
As part of your prize
Yet when I meet your stare
I see somthing there.

Oh no I will not go with you
But pray tell me why
I must gaze in your eye
Tell me what do i hope to see
Somthing dark calls to me

And when you come out and ask
Of me an urgent plea
I find I cannot turn from he
Of yours who would die.

But as I then I touch his soul
I find a thing so strange
As to have caused your kin to change
Throughout years of time
Its kind I've never seen
Spawned from shadows green

Oh no I will not go with you
But pray tell me why,
I find trust in your eye?
Tell me what is this thing I see?
Somthing dark calls to me

Now that you have won our trial
And you have hurt my friend
My quiet life at Sorrows End
Will not be the same.
Why do I still feel this way?
Where is this hidden voice,
That tells me that against my choice
I must join with you?
Yet now I know the name
To make the wild wolf tame

Oh No, I dare not go with you
Though I recognize,
That theres love in your eyes
Tell me how has this come to be?
I hear you calling me....

Who can place it?

The best lyrics ever are definitely contained in Limp Bizkit's masterpiece, Rollin'.

Gems like:

Cuz if you don't care, then we don't care!

That already seemed apparent to me. But then, this one is ever better:

Back the fuck up while we fuck this track up!

It couldn't be more true.

Limp Bizkit has possibly the most shallow lyrics I've heard in popular music. But then, I don't go much for bands whose message is "we r teh ph4ttest band" or "pimpin' hos and smackin' bitches".

We haven't come to the end of our journey
This is just the begining
The begining of what you ask?
The begining of forever
Through the eyes of many we are judged daily
And although their hatred for use may seem great
It will never surpass the love we pledge to each and every one of ya'll

Show me the reason why...
(we do the things that we do)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)
Show me the reason why...
(we represent the underground always have always will now)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)

You're the reason why I can express myself freely
And give the finger to those who try hate but wanna be me
You're the reason why I won't do 20 to life
You shead some light up on the might be able to change the world for all of us
You're the reason my heart is still pumping
And I ain't out on the corner dumping or shooting somthing
You're the reason we representing the twiztid sound
Fuck the mainstream, the life fo me is the underground
You're the reason why the hotlines are updated
And the website is always being upgraded
You're the reason why I'm glad to be a juggalo
And bring the wicked shit to every town now everybody go
Your the reason I be kissing the clouds
And walk through the curtain and captivate the whole crowd
You're the reason I've exsisted all along
You're the reason for this song...

Show me the reason why...
(we do the things that we do)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)
Show me the reason why...
(we represent the underground always have always will now)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)

You're the reason why I get no sleep
Somtimes it's just a couple days
On the tops it's weeks and weeks
You're the reason why I still got heart
For my los and lettes
And BIG KIDS for the most part
You're the reason why the season never change
If we paste our problems together
We all can re-arrange and stand strong
Your's the reason why we been here so long
And representing you for the beats that we flow on
You're the reason why we do what we do
If you see us putting it down, we representing you
You're the reason why I want to cry
Ya see we love ya muhthafuckas so much we dedicate our lives
Family, unity, with diversity and individuality so fuck popularity
You're the reason why we sing this song
And stay high till the break of dawn
Hit the bong and come along

Show me the reason why...
(we do the things that we do)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)
Show me the reason why...
(we represent the underground always have always will now)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)

You're the reason why I can walk on top of water
And represent your sons a daughters
You're the reason why I float below the ground
And when the lights go I'm still alight
Cause I'm living off of sound
You're the reason why I put my life into this shit
I swear to god if you don't feel me, I'm just as real as counter-fit
You're the reason why I've been chosen, selected
With the juggalos I'm connected

You're the reason why I stop to give a shake a hand, and hug the honeys
And tag a twiztid autograph
You're the reason why crows fly
You're the reason we scream DieMuthaFuckaDie to the outside
And everybody who ain't rapping this
You're the reason why the Carnival is blessing this
You're the reason why I act like a ninjalo
You're the reason why muthafacko I think ya know

Show me the reason why...
(we do the things that we do)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)
Show me the reason why...
(we represent the underground always have always will now)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)

I wont let you down...
I wont let you down...
I wont let you down...
I wont let you down...

Show me the reason why...
(we do the things that we do)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)
Show me the reason why...
(we represent the underground always have always will now)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)

Show me the reason why...
(we do the things that we do)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)
Show me the reason why...
(we represent the underground always have always will now)
Show me the reason why...
(take a chance with me I won't let you down)

It's coming...

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance


I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart


He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades


I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart


And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong
I'm not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one
Those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear are lost


I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

you claimed all this time that you would die for me
why then are you so suprised when you hear your own eulogy
he had a lot to say
he had a lot of nothing to say

Heh my personal favorite is a song by Soul Coughing called Soft Serve, goes like this:

Everybody likes soft serve
Drippin down in the june sun,
I tried to shoot a thought, but the thoughts are
nothin to do but scratch words in the dirt and watch the water roll down...
Phantom kisses buzzin like the insects,
Beads of sweat drippin down on the rent check
My candyland, melted down to syrup while i watch the water roll down...

guys this lyric discussion brought one song to my mind. it describes perfictly the situation i am in w/my girl.

I don't want you to give it all up
and leave your own life collecting dust
and I don't want you to feel sorry for me
you never gave us a chance to be

And I don't need you to be by my side
and tell me that everythings all right
I just wanted you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

I did enough to show you that I was willing to give and sacrafice
and I was the one who was lifting you up
when you thought your life had had enough
when I get close you turn away, nothing that I can do or say
so now I need you to tell me the truth
you know I would do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

Is it me? Is it you?
Nothing that
I can do
To make you change your mind

Is it me? Is it you?
Nothing that
I can do
Is it a waste of time?

Is it me? Is it you?
Nothing that
I can do
to make you change your mind

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
(What is it I have to say?)
So why are you running away?
(To make you admit you're afraid)
Why are you running away?

And the three men I admire the most

I always liked Phil Collins when it came to lyrics.. his "both sides of the story" CD is just enough melancolic that it makes me think but not so much as to make me depressed...

Else I tend towards Italian or French or Danish rap, when it's about Lyrics. Especially this Italian band called "Articolo 31"... they have some nice stuff. I really hate the typical American Hiphop/Rap since most of it is about Money and Ho's....

There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,
(And they're quite convinced the're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light.
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade.

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights.
"These oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us light."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.

My favorite lyrics would have to be from Tool(first and foremost), Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails, Machines of Loving Grace, Manson, The Beatles(towards the end), and Led Zeppelin.

Some of my personal favorites:

Opiate by Tool- Choices always were a problem for you. What you need is someone strong to guide you. Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow, what you need is someone strong to use you.. like me, like me. If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me .Don't judge or question.You are broken now, but faith can heal you. Just do everything I tell you to do. Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow. Let me lay my holy hand upon you. My Gods will becomes me. When he speaks out, he speaks through me. He has needs like I do. We both want to rape you. Jesus Christ, why don't you come save my life. Open my eyes and blind me with your light and your lies.

46&2 by Tool (excerpt)- I've been crawling on my belly clearing out what could've been I've been wallowing in my own chaotic and insecure delusions. I wanna feel the change consume me, feel the outside turning in. I wanna feel the metamorphosis and cleansing I've endured within my shadow. Change is coming. Now is my time. Listen to my muscle memory. Contemplate what I've been clinging to. Forty-six and two ahead of me. I choose to live and to grow, take and give and to move, learn and love and to cry, kill and die and to be paranoid and to lie, hate and fear and to do what it takes to move through.

Pushit by Tool (excerpt)- Saw that gap again today as you were begging me to stay. Managed to push myself away, and you, as well. If, when I say I may fade like a sigh if I stay, you minimize my movement anyway, I must persuade you another way. There's no love in fear. Staring down the hole again. Hands upon my back again. Survival is my only friend. Terrified of what may come. Just remember I will always love you, even as I tear your fucking throat away. But it will end no other way.

Echoes by Pink Floyd-
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no one called us to the land
And no one knows the where's or why's.
Something stirs and something tries
Starts to climb toward the light.

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me.
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can.

And no one called us to the land
And no one crosses there alive.
No one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun....

Almost everyday you fall
Upon my waking eyes,
Inviting and inciting me
To rise.
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning.

And no one sings me lullabyes
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky....


Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict by Pink Floyd-

Aye an' a bit of Mackeral settler rack and ruin
ran it doon by the haim, 'ma place
well I slapped me and I slapped it doon in the side
and I cried, cried, cried.


Dogs by Pink Floyd (I think of rogues anytime I listen to this)-
You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
get older.
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
around.
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this
maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun,
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Something I Can Never Have by NiN-
i still recall the taste of my tears.
echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears.
my favorite dreams of you still wash ashore.
scraping through my head 'till i don't want to sleep anymore.

Here's a few of my favs....

---

Fight the Power (excerpt)
Public Enemy

Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fu*k him and John Wayne
Cause I’m black and I’m proud
I’m ready and hyped plus I’m amped
Most of my heros don’t appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you’ll look and find
Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check
Don’t worry be happy
Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
(Get it) Let’s get this party started right
Right on, c’mon
What we got to say
Power to the people no delay
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be
Fight the power!


---

Maria (excerpt)
Rage against the machine

These are her mountains and skies and
she radiates
And through history’s rivers of blood
she regenerates
And like the sun disappears only to reappear
She’s eternally here
Her time is near
Never conquered but here!


---

Battery (excerpt)
Metallica

Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the battery
Smashing through the boundaries
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the battery
Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the battery
Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me!
Battery!


---

Wait and Bleed (excerpt)
Slipknot

I’ve felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can’t see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed…
I wipe it off on tile, the light is brighter this time
Everything is 3D blasphemy
My eyes are red and gold, hair is standing straight up
This is not the way I pictured me
I can’t control my shakes, how the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong…
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn’t like this
Is it a dream or a memory?
Get outta my head cuz I don’t need this
Why didn’t I see this?
I’m a victim – manchurian candidate
I – have – sinned – by – just
Makin’ my mind up and taking your breath away!


---

Cornfed Dames (excerpt)
The Cramps

Callin’ all cows down on the farm
Hey! Shut the door.. you born in a barn?!
I ain’t no farmer that’s no fun
Run some tractor till the work’s all done
Hey milk it bossie I’ll buy ya a diamond ring.
Now good girls can’t pay the rent these days
These cornfed dames done found a way
Unzip that zipper.. snap that snap
Round up the cattle in the cadillac
Whip that cream baby til the butter comes
Shake it baby shake it baby shake it baby shake it
(repeat)
Shake that thing I’ll buy you a diamond ring.


(The Cramps' album: A date with Elvis, is an absolute classic!!)

---

Wake Up! Time to Die (excerpt)
Pop Will Eat Itself

An Alcohol whore is what I was before
Low-life days erased in a purple haze
Maybe just a craze, a phase we were going through
(Between me and you, the habit continues)
Sobriety’s deserted me once again
Surrender to the bender and no saying “when”
Chewing on a bottle of ignorant bliss
And needs must at times like this
Wake Up! Time to die.
That old devil gravity’s having it’s way with me
Bringing me down, surrounding me with misery
A high-tide suicide
A death ride: cut and dried
Inside I can’t hide, though I’ve tried
Confidence crumbling
Can’t talk, I’m mumbling
To myself, I’m stumbling for the top shelf
Get straight, got to decontaminate
Before it’s too late!
Glass jaw, alcohol whore
Cardboard cut-out lying on the floor
Lame brain’s drunk again
Stupid dumb dumb cold plumb insane
I’ve felt worse but I’ve felt better
A human see-saw to the letter
It makes me feel so bad – but so nice..
So bad and so nice!

Adema "Skin"

Days will come that make no sense
My present situation makes me think too much, too much
It all revolves around you
This life that I'm living means nothing without you
I'd shed my skin for you (I'd shed my skin for you)
What would you want me to do (What would you want me to do)
I will always love you, but I can't live like this
This problem here is my fault
It's not that I don't care but I'm so lost

I'd shed my skin for you (I'd shed my skin for you)
What would you want me to do (What would you want me to do)

So many good lyrics out there..so little time (and space!).

Mentioned a ton already, but I didn't see this song from them...Gotta love tool, the thinking man's metal.. Image

So familiar and overwhelmingly warm
This one, this form I hold now.
Embracing you, this reality here,
This one, this form I hold now, so
Wide eyed and hopeful.
Wide eyed and hopefully wild.

We barely remember what came before this precious moment,
Choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside...
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone in
This body makes me feel eternal. All this pain is an illusion.
-Tool, Parabol (Parabola)

Mention this to me
Mention something, mention anything
... and watch the weather change.
-Tool, Disposition

Threw you the obvious
And you flew with it on your back
A name in your recollection
Down among a million, say:
Difficult enough to feel a little bit
Disappointed, passed over.
When I've looked right through,
To see you naked and oblivious
and you don't see me

Well I threw you the obvious,
Just to see if there's more behind the
Eyes of a fallen angel,
Eyes of a tragedy.

Here I am expecting just a little bit
Too much from the wounded
But I see,
See through it all,
See through,
And see you.

...You don't see me at all
-APC, 3 Libras

My friend assures me, "It's all or nothing."
I am not worried
I am not overly concerned
My friend implores me, "For one time only,
make an exception." I am not worried
Wrap her up in a package of lies
Send her off to a coconut island
I am not worried I am not overly concerned
with the status of my emotions
"Oh," she says, "you're changing."
But we're always changing

It does not bother me to say this isn't love
Because if you don't want to talk about it then it isn't love
And I guess I'm going to have to live with that
But I'm sure there's something in a shade of grey,
Something in between,
And I can always change my name
If that's what you mean
-Counting Crows, Anna Begins (Their best song, ever)

Summer time and the wind is blowing, Outside in lower Chelsea.
And I don't know what I'm doing in this city,
The sun is always in my eyes,
it crashes through the windows, And I'm sleeping on the couch,
When I came to visit you,
That's when I knew, I could never have you,
I knew that before you did,
Still I'm feeling stupid,
And there's this burning, Like there's always been,
I've never been so alone, And I've never been so alive.
Visions of you on a motorcycle drive by,
Cigarette ash flies in your eyes, And you don't mind, And you smile,
And say the world doesn't fit with you.
I don't believe you, You're so serene.
Careening through the universe, Your axis on a tilt, Guiltless and free,
I hope you take a piece of me with you,
And there's things I'd like to do that you don't believe in,
I would like to build something, You know it's never going to happen,
And there's this burning, Like there's always been,
I've never been so alone, And I've never been so alive,
And there's this burning, There is this burning.
Where's the soul. I want to know, New York City is evil.
The surface is everything, but I could never do that,
Someone would see through that.
And this will be the last time, We'll be friends again.
I'll get over you and you'll wonder, Who I am.
And there's this burning, Like there's always been,
I've never been so alone, And I've never been so alive,
I go home to the coast. It starts to rain, I paddle out, On the water Alone,
Taste the salt and taste the pain. I'm not thinking of you again,
Summer dies and swells rise, The sun goes down in my eyes, See this rolling wave, Darkly coming to take me, Home,
And I never been so alone, And I've never been so alive.
