Best Song Lyrics?
« on: January 11, 2014, 07:52:18 pm »
What are the best song lyrics you've ever heard? It can be because any reason; if they get you happy, make you think, get you pumped, etc. Just give me your favorites. Mine are... well, I don't happen to have any right now. I haven't heard any that strike any particular chord. Anyways. Go nuts.

The lyrics to Talking Heads' "Once in a Lifetime" are by far my favorite lyrics from any song ever written. The song is delivered almost like a pentecostal sermon, but the lyrics delve into the harsh reality of life. In essence the narrator is drowning in the water of adult life, realizing that he's pursuing a career to get a large house, nice car, a beautiful wife, but comes to the realization that he's halfway through his life and still has none of these things and exclaims "MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?!". This song is what's guiding me through life decisions, as dumb as that sounds. The last thing I want in my life is to wake up 30 years from now, realizing that I didn't jump on my passion and keeping a 9-5 job that stops me from pursuing my interests. idk, that's just me.

Hmmm, I love the lyrics to most of Flobot's songs as they can go deep and talk about the world around us. Definitely worth listening closely to and searching up the lyrics.

 Because its just amazing

Amen. This song is amazing.

I personally love Tesseract's lyrics, especially back when they had Ashe O' Hara as the writer. Periphery has some good lyrics, like "Cradled in the thick of it, but too ignorant to give a shit.", that always makes me laugh. Their song Absolomb is nice as well, it's about love but in a different way than most songs, basically asking if love really is infinite, and the idea of caring about someone forever through time and space. Sounds cheesy but it's interesting.

BUT TESSERACT

Tesseract has some of my favorite lyrics. Specifically Exile and Retrospect. Seven Names has some good lyrics as well.

Some of my favorites:


Dwelling on what has come to pass
no force alive will bring it back
I would know
I can feel the pressure getting steeper with every life lost
You hope that I won't see the light of day in time to come
With no conviction founded
Just judgement contorted based on lust


We're all alone
Until we let our minds take to the skies

Our blood runs cold yet we remain alive

What's the confliction between heart and mind?
How to bridge the void?
Fuse the two in kinship
To understand your prospects and vistas
And yet to see the love here too
It's more than I can do
Vows and pursuits which at best hollow
I remain torn in two


Why won't you forgive me?
I was so alone, soaking to the bone
How could you forgive me?
Was I pitiful, unforgivable?

Unholiest, irrelevant, immoral son
Ungodly one



If anyone actually read all that, I am impressed XD

From "Take Me to Church" by Hozier:
"No masters or kings
When the ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean"

Peaches come from a can,
they were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
If I had my little way,
I'd eat peaches every day
