Favourite Song Lyric

Recommended Posts

What is your favourite lyric from a song? I mean a particular line or couple of lines that you really like.

 

I like the following...

 

"I feel his hand on my brain, when i write rhymes i go blind and let the lord do it's thing!" - Tupac - Ghetto Gospel.

 

Obviously it's better with the music, but that's my choice. I love the rhyme and it puts a powerful picture in my head.

 

What's your favourite?

Couple of Thunder lyrics:

 

You Can't Live Your Life In A Day

 

I said don't you believe in tomorrow?

Because today's just a scene in the play

You might get some bad breaks and you'll make your mistakes

But you can't live your life in a day

 

A Better Man

 

Once in a while, I drift in time

To a place in my memory that it still hurts to find

I was taking on the world with a see through smile

But dying on the inside all the while

 

AC/DC - Sin City

 

Ladders and snakes

Ladders give, snakes take

Rich man, poor man, beggarman, thief

Ain't got a hope in hell, that's my belief

'I am what I am' by Gloria Gaynor. I love that song too much I think.

 

'Somewhere there is an angel watching over your life Sometimes there is a silence somewhere a face in the light' from a song called Inside of you by Alice Martineau. She was a brilliant singer, and in a way I will always look up to her, with the ammount she managed to acheive with just 30 years of life.

For its pure surreal greatness... This little bit of Mars Volta's 'Roulette Dares (the haunt of)' has a place in my heart...

 

Specter will lurk

Radar has gathered

Midnight nooses from boxcar cadavers

 

For pure insane happiness through depression try 'Headfirst For Halos' by My Chemical Romance...

Well let's go back to the middle of the day that starts it all

I can't begin to let you know just what I'm feeling

And now the red ones make me fly

And the blue ones help me fall

And I think I'll blow my brains against the ceiling

And as the fragments of my skull begin to fall

Fall on your tongue like pixie dust just think happy thoughts

 

And for the horrors that men cause other men... 'Angel Of Death' by Slayer... the whole damn thing... F**k you Nazi Germany...

 

Auschwitz, the meaning of pain

The way that i want you to die

Slow death, immense decay

Showers that cleanse you of your life

Forced in

Like cattle

You run

Stripped of

Your life's worth

Human mice, for the angel of death

Four hundred thousand more to die

Angel of death

Monarch to the kingdom of the dead

Sadistic, surgeon of demise

Sadist of the noblest blood

 

Destroying, without mercy

To benefit the aryan race

 

Surgery, with no anesthesia

Fell the knife pierce you intensely

Inferior, no use to mankind

Strapped down screaming out to die

Angel of death

Monarch to the kingdom of the dead

Infamous butcher,

Angel of death

 

Pumped with fluid, inside your brain

Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes

Burning flesh, drips away

Test of heat burns your skin, your mind starts to boil

Frigid cold, cracks your limbs

How long can you last

In this frozen water burial?

Sewn together, joining heads

Just a matter of time

'til you rip yourselves apart

Millions laid out in their

Crowded tombs

Sickening ways to achieve

The holocaust

Seas of blood, bury life

Smell your death as it burns

Deep inside of you

Abacinate, eyes that bleed

Praying for the end of

Your wide awake nightmare

Wings of pain, reach out for you

His face of death staring down,

Your blood running cold

Injecting cells, dying eyes

Feeding on the screams of

The mutants he's creating

Pathetic harmless victims

Left to die

Rancid angel of death

Flying free

 

Angel of death

Monarch to the kingdom of the dead

Infamous butcher,

Angel of death

 

Angel of death

Nas from "Ether" (Second verse)

 

I've been ****ed over, left for dead, dissed and fogotten

Luck ran out, they hoped that I'd be gone, stiff and rotten

Y'all just piss on me, **** on me, spit on my grave (uh)

Talk about me, laugh behind my back but in my face

Y'all some "well wishers," friendly actin, envy hidin snakes

With your hands out for my money, man, how much can I take?

When these streets keep callin, heard it when I was sleep

That this Gay-Z and Cockafella Records wanted beef

Started cockin up my weapon, slowly loadin up this ammo

To explode it on a camel, and his soldiers, I can handle

This for dolo and it's manuscript, just sound stupid

When KRS already made an album called Blueprint

First, Biggie's ya man, then you got the nerve to say that you better than Big

Dick suckin lips, whyn't you let the late, great veteran live

 

Jay-Z & Eminem from "Renegade"

 

Jay-Z]

Motherf***ers -

say that I'm foolish I only talk about jewels

Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?

See I'm influenced by the ghetto you ruined

That same dude you gave nothin, I made somethin doin

what I do through and through and

I give you the news - with a twist it's just his ghetto point-of-view

The renegade; you been afraid

I penetrate pop culture, bring 'em a lot closer to the block where they

pop toasters, and they live with they moms

Got dropped roasters, from botched robberies niggaz crotched over

Mommy's knocked up cause she wasn't watched over

Knocked down by some clown when child support knocked

No he's not around - now how that sound to ya, jot it down

I bring it through the ghetto without ridin 'round

hidin down duckin strays from frustrated youths stuck in they ways

Just read a magazine that f***ed up my day

How you rate music that thugs with nothin relate to it?

I help them see they way through it - not you

Can't step in my pants, can't walk in my shoes

Bet everything you're worth; you'll lose your tie and your shirt

 

[Eminem]

Since I'm in a position to talk to these kids and they listen

I ain't no politician but I'll kick it with 'em a minute

Cause see they call me a menace; and if the shoe fits I'll wear it

But if it don't, then y'all can swallow the truth grin and bear it

Now who's the king of these rude ludicrous lucrative lyrics

Who could inherit the title, put the youth in hysterics

Usin his music to steer it, sharin his views and his merits

But there's a huge interference - they're sayin you shouldn't hear it

Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit

Maybe it's beautiful music I made for you to just cherish

But I'm debated disputed hated and viewed in America

as a motherf***in drug addict - like you didn't experiment?

Now now, that's when you start to stare at who's in the mirror

and see yourself as a kid again, and you get embarrased

And I got nothin to do but make you look stupid as parents

You f***in do-gooders too bad you couldn't do good at marriage!

(Ha ha!) And do you have any clue what I had to do to get here I don't

think you do so stay tuned and keep your ears glued to the stereo

Cause here we go - he's {*Jigga joint Jigga-chk-Jigga*}

And I'm the sinister, Mr. Kiss-My-Ass it's just a

 

 

Lil' Wayne from "6 Minutes"

 

Hit me!

**** that **** this the south side, I got a fat dick when yo mouth wide

I've come to take outside, nah do it right here

nah hop out later on when everybodys home, "show you Who You ****in' With?"

Wheezy F baby, please say the baby

Riding with your bitch got keys on the lady

Triple gold D's Volgue tires on the whip

Young Carter sliding out I'm flyer than the whip

Yeah, higher than an angel, or hotter than the devil

The pot or kettle, uh

The metal let 'em burn like Usher

If there's any beef I come running like Mertza

Word up, eagle street I'm throwing my curve up

We take your ice cream and turn you into sherbert

I got flow I'm like "Sure nuf" but, if it's about dough I'm like "Sure 'nuff"

I'm from the bird bunch, Birdman Jr. you niggaz bird lunch

I see your lips moving but I ain't heard much

You see the wirst moving, it look like pure punch

I hear the playa hating but I don't endorse such

I got the Escalade, guts like the tour bus

I got the styrofoam poured up with syrup

And in the tires little package is gone

Might I spend a good deal with these Firestones

I spit like Myer's bones, born in chromers

For the buyers chromosomes I got summers

I got vicadens, valiums I ain't stopping

Got pot and heroin, ex, oxycontin

And that's how we rocking

How can you hear that bop unless I'm be-bopping

Yeah skip when you hear that click

Cash money nigga I'm that ****

I leave the begging ungh!

 

Cam'Ron from "More Gangsta Music"

 

I'm on the southside of Chicago lookin for a real hoe

I dont see a touchdown, arms up feild goal

Got some ill gold, diamonds thats still low

Lil dick you a dickhead, nah dildo

I chill though, pippin in the Range

All this icin I'm ashamed, look like lightnin' in the chain

Who was first that moved wit they fam (who)

Ask you, tattoos on they hand (who)

Slang all the white (who) cruise wit the tan (who)

Pink on they back (who) blue in they van (who)

Yellow on his ear (who) steam on the rock (who)

Puple in the air (who) green in his pocket

I aint dissin you dog, I'm dismissin you

Get the R. Kelly tape and see how we piss on you

Thats Kool-Aid, Moutain Dew, and Cris on you

Ya family will be missin you, theres a kiss for you

I have one simple lyric that never fails to bring a smile to my face. Its from the classic track that is Pinball Wizard by The Who, and it goes like so:

Pinball Wizard there has to be a twist

A Pinball Wizard's got such a supple wrist

Ever since i first heard that lyric it made me laugh, and it will do so until the day i die!

I know its only meant to be afew lines but....

 

Well, I'm rumblin' in this JCB.

I'm 5 years old and my dad's a giant sitting beside me.

And the engine rattles my bum like berserk

While we're singin, 'Don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work!'

 

My dad's probably had a bloody hard day

But he's been good fun and bubblin and jokin' away

And the procession of cars stuck behind

are gettin all impatient and angry, but we dont mind.

 

An' we're holdin up the bypass

oh

Me and my dad havin a top laugh

oh woah

 

Sittin on the toolbox

oh

And I'm so glad I'm not in school, boss

So glad I'm not in school

 

Oh no...

 

And we pull over to let cars past

And pull off again, speedin by the summer green grass

And we're like giants up here in our big yellow digger

Like zoids, or transformers, or maybe even bigger

 

And I wanna transform into a Tyrannosaurus Rex!

And eat up all the bullies and the teachers and their pets

And I'll tell all my mates that my dad's B.A. Baracus

Only with a JCB and Bruce Lee's nunchuckas

 

And We're holdin up the bypass

Weh Oh

Me and my dad havin a top laugh

Weh Oh weh oh

 

Sittin on the toolbox

Weh Oh

And I'm so glad I'm not in school, boss

So glad I'm not in school

 

And we're holdin up the bypass

Weh Oh

 

Me and my dad havin a top laugh

Weh Oh

I'm sittin on the toolbox

Weh Oh

 

And I'm so glad I'm not in school, Boss

So glad I'm not in school

 

-

 

Said I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round

 

And we're holdin' up the bypass

Weh Oh

 

Me and my dad havin a top laugh

Weh Oh

And I'm sittin on the toolbox

oh

 

And I'm so glad I'm not in school, Boss

So glad I'm not in school

 

I said

 

I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his

 

Aw, I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

I'm Luke, I'm five, and my dad's Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

 

......the whole song ROCKS!!!

"I cant believe he's so trusting,

More seriously.

 

"Sing like you think no-ones listening" - Straylight run

 

"I did my best, it wasn’t much

I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch

I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you

And even though

It all went wrong

I’ll stand before the lord of song

With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah" - Leonard Cohen Hallelujah

 

"There’s nothing left to prove

There’s nothing I won’t do

There’s nothing like the pain

I feel for you" - Our Lady Peace - Not Enough

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo" - Eminem lose youself

Listening to Green Day now and have just heard a line that i think tops the Tupac one...

 

"It didn't say much but it only confirmed, that the centre of the Earth is the end of the world."

 

I do like that one. Billie Joe can write some very moving lyrics when he wants to.

"Hurt" as sung by Johnny Cash; Written by Trent Reznor

 

I hurt myself, today,

To see if I still feel.

I focus on the pain,

The only thing thats real.

The needle tears a hole,

The old familiar sting.

Try to kill it all away,

But I remember everything.

 

{Chorus}

 

What have I become?

My sweetest friend?

Everyone I know,

Goes away in the end.

And you could have it all.

My empire of dirt.

I will let you down.

I will make you.....hurt.

 

I wear this crown of thorns,

Upon my liars chair.

Full of broken thoughts,

I cannot repair.

Beneath the stains of time,

The feelings disappear.

You are someone else.

I am still right here.

 

{Chorus}

 

If I could start again,

A million miles away.

I would keep myself,

I would find a way.....

I Will Play My Game Beneath The Spin Light - Brand New

 

"Wrote more postcards than hooks, I read more maps than books,

seems ever chance to leave is another chance I should have took,

every minute is a mile, I've never felt so hollow,

I'm an old abandoned church with broken pews and empty ailes,

my secrets for a buck, watch me as I cut myself wide open on this stage,

yes I am paid to spill my guts, wont see home till spring,

oh I would kill for the Atlantic but I am paid to make girls panic while I sing"

Wednesday 13 - I Walked With A Zombie

 

'I'm damned if I voodoo, and I'm dead if I don't

Kick the crypt and baby walk with me

And we'll find a new place to haunt

Now the dead can't die, they're not alive

I've got one walking by my side

It's a curse, a hex, tell me what comes next

Tie the noose around my neck

 

See you in the graveyard at midnight

Such a horrifying delight

Your ice-cold touch, it feels so right

And just last night

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie

 

Her stare is so demanding and her clothes are so commanding

She makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop

With my head on the butcher block

You're the only one for me, I'm in love with a decomposing zombie

Beauty's on duty in this horror movie

Make me spill my guts with just one touch

 

See you in the graveyard at midnight

Such a horrifying delight

Your ice-cold touch, it feels so right

And just last night

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie

 

She makes me do everything she wants me to

And that's okay with me because I'm walking with a zombie

 

See you in the graveyard at midnight

Such a horrifying delight

Your ice-cold touch, it feels so right

And just last night

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a zombie, zombie, zombie

I walked with a

Zombie, zombie, zombie, zombie'

 

I recently found this kick arse song again. It roxorz hardcore.
