Favorite Song Lyrics/Poetry
« on: October 01, 2005, 06:30:08 am »
Name your favorite small chunk of lyrics or poetry. Just looking for a couple of lines or so.

My favorite lyrics:
Quote from: Live - White, Discussion

When the final sunset rolls behind the Earth
And the clock is finally dead

(This band normally blows chunks, especially in their new ultra-Christian mode, but this couplet FTW.)
Lossage, sausage, whatever.

It's not a lyric, but someone should definitely mix an MP3 of it:

ugh.

but here's mine, for the moment:

Sweetness
Sweetness I was only joking when I said
I’d like to smash every tooth in your head.
Oh sweetness
Sweetness I was only joking when I said
By rights you should be bludgeoned in your bed.

Enveloped in a sentiment,
a sound that rushes over me.
Engage an impulse to pretend
I have a faith as pure.
Not forgetting what it means to dream.
Indulging everything.
Entertaining thoughts that I've the strength
of those I yearn to be.
Cheers and tribute greet the saviours.
Reckless thoughts survive.
Anachronistic and impulsive.

"Eminem's got a cuss in his raps to sell records.  Well, me too, so fuck Will Smth."

"That don't rhyme."

"Drats"

-Bloodhound Gang, Strictly for the Tardcore.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

ghostface - verse 1 off 'nutmeg'
(something like this)

Scientific, my hand kissed it
Robotic let's think optimistic
You probably missed it, watch me dolly dick it
Scotty watty cop it to me, big microphone hippie
Hit Poughkepsie crispy chicken verbs throw up a stone richie
Chop the O, sprinkle a lil' snow inside a Optimo
Swing the John McEnroe, rap rock'n'roll
Tidy Bowl, gung-ho pro, Starsky with the gumsole
Hit the rump slow, parole kids, live Rapunzel
P-Tone stizzy really high, the vivid laser eye guide
Jump in the Harley ride, Clarks I freak a lemon pie
I'm bout it, bout it - "Lord forgive me", Ms. Sally shouted
Tracey got shot in the face, my house was overcrowded
You fake cats done heard it first
On how I shitted on your turf
at times, Cuban Link verse yo
Check out the rap kingpin, summertime fine jewelry drippin
Face in the box, I seen your ear twitchin
As soon as I drove off, Cap' came to me with three sawed-offs
Give one to Rae', let's season they broth
Lightning rod fever heaters, knock-kneeder Sheeba for hiva
Diva got rocked from the receiver bleeder
Portfolio, lookin fancy in the pantry
My man got bigger dimes son, your shit is scampi
Base that, throw what's in your mouth, don't waste that
See Ghost lampin in the throne with King Tut hat
Straight off
neat hell

Rollins Band, "Liar"

I'll hide behind a smile and understanding eyes
And I'll tell you things that you already know so you can say:
"I really identify with you, so much"
And all the time that you're needing me
Is just the time that I'm bleeding you
Don't you get it yet?
I'll come to you like an affliction
Then I'll leave you like an addiction
You'll never forget me... you wanna know why?

Cause I'm a liar, yeah
I'm a liar
I'll tear your mind up, I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me
'cause I'm a liar, a liar, a liar, a liar...
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

Either my current sig, which is Comfort Eagle by Cake, or The Hardest Button to Button, by the White Stripes.

Now its easy when you dont know better
You think its sleazy?
Then put it in a short letter
We keep warm
But theres just something wrong when you
Just feel like youre the hardest little button
To button
I had opinions
That didnt matter
I had a brain
That felt like pancake batter

Or possibly someting else
"we are building a religion
we are making a brand
we're the only ones to turn to when your castles turn to sand
take a bite of this apple
mister corporate events
take a walk through the jungle
of cardboard shanties and tents
some people drink pepsi
some people drink coke
the wacky morning dj says democracy's a joke
he says now do you believe in the one big song
he is now accepting callers who would like to sing along"


I AM A COMPLETE AND UTTER FUCKING IDIOT!
