Favorite Lyrics in a song

I thought I might give it a try to have a thread where you post your favorite lyrics snippits.

So I guess just post the quote, song/artist, what it means, if it needs translation, etc.


Here's mine -

"Desperado" by The Eagles

"Don’ you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of heats is always your best bet"

What I got out of this quote was that its always best to follow your heart, not where the money is. Something of that sort.

Lets hear your guys's.

Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues

Quote:
"Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down
I went right home and I went to bed
I stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head"
don't **** with me

i listen to dance music

Knowing I am safe on the inside
Blankets wrapped and drifting off to sleep

Resistant Culture- Hang on to nothing

Turn it all over
And bury the dead
Kill this illusion
That lives in your head
The seeds have been planted
The crops will grow
We must come together
Or die all alone!

"For All Have Sinned"



"Violators be damned for your desecration proud, blasphemers your wickedness will not go unpunished, for he crushes his oppressors and embraces his righteous! Those who call upon his name for strength shall be blessed. Standing by my faith is where I belong; facing trials and oppression makes me strong. But I am a good person, oh no we're not! Evil men walk in heaven through repentance, good men sizzle through ignorance. Do not talk down on what you don't know, or there will be hell to pay. For he crushes his oppressors."

I have a couple.
First is a monologue from the song Dead Flag Blues by Godspeed You! Black Emperor. I wanna see if I can get it all without looking it up. Really powerful statement.

"The car's on fire... and there's no driver at the wheel... The sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides... And a dark wind blows... The government is corrupt... and we're all selling drugs with the radios on and the curtains drawn... we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine... and the machine is bleeding to death... The sun has fallen down... and the billboards are all leering... and the flags are all dead... at the top of their polls... It went like this... the buildings toppled in on themselves... mother clutching babies picked through the rubble and pulled out their hair... The skyline was beautiful on fire... all burning metal twisted upwards... Everything washed in a thin orange haze... I said 'Kiss me you're beautiful, these are truly the last days.'... You took my hand, and we fell into it. Like a daydream, or a fever...* 4 minute break for music* We woke up one morning and fell a little further down... For sure as the valley of death... I open my wallet... and it's full of blood."

But actual lyrics. It's King's Crossing by Elliott Smith.
King's crossing was the main attraction
Dominoes falling in a chain reaction
A scraping subject ruled by fear
Told me whiskey works better than beer
The judge is on vinyl
Decisions are final
And nobody gets a reprieve
And every wave is tidal
If you hang around you're going to get wet
I can't prepare for death anymore than I already have
All you can do now is watch the shelves
The game looks easy
That's why it sells
Frustrated fireworks inside your head
Are going to stand and deliver talk instead
The method acting that pays my bills
Keeps a fat man feeding in Beverly Hills
I got a heavy metal mouth that hurls obscenity
And I get my check from the trash treasury
Because I took my own insides out
It don't matter 'cos I have no sex life
And all I want to do now is inject my ex-wife
I've seen the movie and I know what happens
It's Christmas time, and the needles on the tree
A skinny Santa is bringing something to me
His voice is overwhelming, but his speech is slurred
And I only understand every other word
Open your parachute and grab your gun
Falling down like an omen, a setting sun
Read the part and return at five
It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive
But I don't care if I **** up
I'm going on a date with a rich white lady
Ain't life great?
Give me one good reason not to do it
(Because I love you)
So do it
This is the place where time reverses
Dead men talk to all the pretty nurses
Instruments shine on a silver tray
Don't let me get carried away
Don't let me get carried away
Don't let me be carried away

I'm really surprised I'm saying this, but Coheed and Cambria has some very well written songs. I love some of the lines from them.

"god grant you one wish to turn back the time...
correct and create, making sense of

me and my star matthew good night
you know by law when you'll be forgiven
maria my star matthew good night
you know my lord when you'll be forgiven

...wait, now, here when will you believe?
me i'm merely asking you to help me when did i say to murder?
wait, now, here, please hear me out
time consumer, time consuming, consume me"

Time Consumer - Coheed and Cambria

"Your Father's dead. He passed in his sleep.

And I awoke... to the sound... of her crying."

The Light and the Glass - Coheed and Cambria

Fearless by Pink Floyd

You say the hills too steep to climb
Climbing.
You say youd like to see me try
Climbing.

You pick the place and Ill choose the time
And Ill climb
The hill in my own way.
Just wait a while for the right day.
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds
I look down, hearing the sound of the things youve said today.

Strange thing is, for most people who listen to it a lot, it tends to have the opposite effect. Kinda makes you appreciate it more.

Imagine- John Lennon

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one



Not real deep lyrics but the general message
