    favourite quotes from song lyrics

    Here are a couple of mine:

    "Why can't we see
    That when we bleed we bleed the same"
    - 'Map Of The Problematique' by Muse

    "And so I sent some men to fight, and one came back at dead of night.
    Said he'd seen my enemy. Said he looked just like me,
    So I set out to cut myself and here I go."
    - 'Same Mistake' by James Blunt

    "Your dream is over... or has it just begun?"
    - 'Silent Lucidity' by Queensryche

    "We all want to change the world
    But when you talk about destruction
    Don't you know you can count me out in"
    - 'Revolution' by the Beatles

    I'll post more when I hear some of your guys' favourite quotes from song lyrics. =]

    and gone."

    This one always cracks me up:

    "She'll see right through you with only one eye" from Fiona by Lyle Lovett.

    There are more but that's the only one that comes to mind since I'm listening to that disc now.

    Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Lights
    Or just another lost angel-city of night?
    Doors-LA Woman

    Time-don't let it slip away,
    Raise your drinking glass
    Here's to yesterday.
    In time-we're all going to trip away,
    Don't piss Heaven off
    We got Hell to pay.
    Aerosmith- Full Circle

    i gonna have to double toni here with the tide began to rise i love that song.

    looking for angles by Skillet

    Who can help protect the innocence of our children
    Stolen on the internet with images they can't forget
    We want it we want
    We want a reason to live
    We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation
    To let love be our light and salvation


    Ghetto by POD

    Whether you think I'm so confused
    Or if you feel the way I do
    So don't give in to this hate within
    Living in this world of pain
    Don't let it bring you down
    The world is a ghetto


    Goodbye for now by POD

    We’re still smilin as the day goes by
    and how come nobody
    ever knows the reasons why
    Burry you deep so far
    you can't see
    If you're like me
    who wears a broken
    heart on your sleeve
    Pains is troubles that
    you know so well
    Either time don't
    It can't or you just won't tell
    I'm not the type to say
    I told you so
    I think the hardest part
    of holding on is lettin it go

    these are just scratching the surface of my fav lyrics i'll add more later

    i have one;

    the kids you used to love
    but then we grew old


    fall out boy, sophomore slump or comeback of the year
    reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

    the kids you used to love
    but then we grew old.

    "Something has to change.
    Un-deniable dilemma.
    Boredom's not a burden
    Anyone should bear.

    Constant over stimu-lation numbs me
    and I wouldn't have
    It any other way.

    It's not enough.
    I need more.
    Nothing seems to satisfy.
    I don't want it.
    I just need it.
    To feel, to breathe, to know I'm alive. "
    Maynard James Keenan - Tool

    Standing above the crowd,
    He had a voice so strong and loud and I
    Swallowed his facade cuz I'm so
    Eager to identify with
    Someone above the ground,
    Someone who seemed to feel the same,
    Someone prepared to lead the way, with
    Someone who would die for me.

    Will you? Will you now?
    Would you die for me?
    Don't you ****in lie.

    We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,
    We are choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside
    This holy reality, this holy experience.
    Choosing to be here in

    This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
    This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
    All this pain is an illusion.

    Alive, I

    In this holy reality, in this holy experience. Choosing to be here in

    This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
    This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
    All this pain is an illusion.

    Twirling round with this familiar parable.
    Spinning, weaving round each new experience.
    Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing.

    This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
    Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal.
    All this pain is an illusion.

    (some amazing talent in that band. If your not familiar should check it out.
    Hate to classify it with a genre for fear of discouraging others but i would say some of their songs are considered "heavy".) lol

    "Passive"

    “Dead as dead can be,” my doctor tells me
    But I just can’t believe him, ever the optimistic one
    I’m sure of your ability to become my perfect enemy
    Wake up and face me, don’t play dead cause maybe
    Someday I will walk away and say, “You disappoint me,”
    Maybe you’re better off this way

    Leaning over you here, cold and catatonic
    I catch a brief reflection of what you could and might have been
    It's your right and your ability
    To become…my perfect enemy…
    "When griping grief the heart doth wound, and doleful dumps the mind oppresses, then music, with her silver sound, with speedy help doth lend redress."

    ^^APC! Nice!

    You call this living a dream?
    Well everything's not what it seems
    To be
    Grace, not glory,
    Life, not a story.
    ----

    They only want you when you're 17,
    When you're 21,
    You're no fun.
    ---- 17, Ladytron
    Naked except for a cigarette, you let your mind drift and forget your disbelief. Feel the chill down your back and the flutter of wings through dandelion fields, and forget the pull of gravity in a night without stars.

    I lack eloquence and commitment to my arguments. They are half baked, and I will begin passionately, and then abandon them.
