Favourite Lyrics

Hey everybody I was just listening to one of my favourite songs and I was just struck by how awesome its lyrics were. I did a search of the music forums and didn't find a thread devoted to lyrics, so I wanted to create this thread! Lyrics are a huge part of songs for me and I feel like good ones are pretty scarce nowadays. Share your favourite lyrics! Here are a few of my favourites.

Spoiler for phantom by Fukuyama Masaharu:
Poetic and haunting, I love the epic picture it paints in my mind! I imagine a lone samurai standing alone in a misty mountain or something...


Spoiler for Michishirube by Fukuyama Masaharu:
Nostalgic and beautiful...

Spoiler for Daybreak's Bell by L'arc~en~Ciel:
Again, it's haunting and beautiful stuff.

I like Japanese song lyrics a lot but there's the downside of getting translated... that's why I prefer just seeing them in their original language

I love looking up lyrics as well. There are some that are well-written and really speak out to you.

school food punishment, besides from rocking, has a distinctive way of writing lyrics. I don't think I can describe their style of music as anything other than artistic.

I heard that the singer cried when she was writing this song, and I can definitely see why:
Spoiler for percentage:

Kakenukeru is one of my absolute favorite songs from them, as it has this really uplifting feel:
Spoiler for kakenukeru:

Supercell is one of my favorite artists as well. They made all of the classic Vocaloid songs and have gone official with their skills, and their singles really touch the heart. There's a lot of emotion as each song tells a bittersweet story with ryo's masterful compositions and nagi's sweet voice heightening the experience. Sayonara Memories is my favorite because it just feels so real.

Spoiler for Sayonara Memories:

Sakomoto Maaya's Gravity stands out to me because it has nearly perfect English in it and you can feel the sorrow and loneliness of a person on their journey. This song really reflects Wolf's Rain perfectly.
Spoiler for Gravity:

Gumi's Yowamushi Montblanc really stands out to me as a song that tells the story of a girl that's too afraid to move forward. I love DECO*27 and his songs.
Spoiler for Yowamushi Montblanc:

Megurine Luka's Just Be Friends is also a very popular song that details the breaking up of a relationship. I think the video adds a lot to the meaning of this, and it really hits home for those who have experienced the same situation.
Spoiler for Just Be Friends:

Madoka's ending Magia, apart from sounding freaking awesome, has some really powerful lyrics.

my favorite song, it fits me perfectly...

Unwell
All day
Staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night
Hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something
Hold on
I'm feeling like I'm headed for a
Breakdown
I don't know why
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
Me
Talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
I know
I know they've all been talking 'bout me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong
With me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow
I've lost my mind
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
I been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
Hey, how I used to be
How I used to be, yeah
Well I'm just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be

My favourite song, from my favourite band:

A Lesson Never Learned- Asking Alexandria

"Please you have to help me
This is not my true face
If you could see my soul
As I have seen my soul
I could show it to you
It's rotten
It's poison
Help me please

Please, give me a f**king excuse
I beg for just one reason to give you regret, regret!

Are you with me or are you on your own
It's time to choose your side
So choose your side
Are you with me or are you on your own
It's time to choose your side
So choose your f**king side

Could be the end of the world
I'd still be laid here on my own wasting my life away (x2)

Hear me now
Get off your knees
Nothing changes within you pray
I'm the closest thing to a God you'll ever know
Get off your knees

Open your eyes
I'll regret, never again
And I stand above you
I'll regret, never again
And I stand above you

And I can't feel this pain anymore
And I can't carry on this way
I'm hiding behind false eyes

Could be the end of the world
I'd still be laid here on my own wasting my life away (x2)

Over and over

F**kn' hell

F**K!"

Exemplifies Americanization and Californiacation greatly. It shows the...false dreams that Hollywood has, how it brainwashes people ("Sicker than the rest There is no test But this is what you're craving") and how it changes people ("Pay your surgeon very well To break the spell of aging").

[See the cemetery sky
Carmine red and deep
Watch the oceans rising high
It?s the human stain]

Talk about the growing hunger
Ask why with deep concern
Don?t you think
the human race is ceaselessly vain

But it hurts to be alive, my friend
In this silent tide we're driftwood passing by
Don?t you wish you were a child again
Just for a minute
just for a minute more

Hear the ticking of a clock
The sound of life itself
No one really wants to die
To save the world

Tell me that you're torn asunder
From how we fail to learn

And tell me
as the earth goes under
Where?s your anger now

So it hurts to be alive, my friend
In this masquerade where all one day must die
Don?t you wish you were unborn again
Just for a minute
just for a minute more

Tic toc
The ticking that could tear asunder
The beating from a heart of stone
The lust of your divine prosperity

'Cause it costs to be alive, my friend
And this life that someone merely gave to you
That's the price you pay
Minute by minute
You beg for a minute more

I don’t care for adulation
or so that strangers may weep.
I sing for a far strip of country
narrow but endlessly deep.
This is the best thing I've seen on this thread, and while I don't normally look at lyrics threads, discovering Victor Jara was definitely worth the time.

Since I don't want to post entire huge songs, I'll just put my favorite lines, out of context:

Quote:
Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering.
There's a crack in everything;
  That's how the light gets in.
  - Leonard Cohen, "Anthem"

Quote:
We want your pardon ere we go
For having agonized you so,
  So pardon us,
  So pardon us,
  So pardon us,
    Or die!
  - W. S. Gilbert, Ruddigore

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
Call Alice
When she was just small.

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"

My new favourite! lyrics about alice and lsd
