    Talking Favorite Song Lyric

    just a quick random thread - as it says in the title, what's your favorite song lyric, could be for any reason - name the song and band then post it up
    (go on, you can have 2 if you cant decide )

    30 Seconds To Mars - Attack
    "Your Promises, they look like lies, your honesty: like a back that hides a knife"

    first one that sprang to mind, i just think its an awesome use of comparison from a very cool song

    Aquabats - The cat with 2 heads

    I kept it in a box
    I watched it grow a lot
    It chewed right through the lock
    And ate all the new kids on the block.

    The Smiths - How Soon Is Now

    "There's a club if you'd like to go,
    you could meet somebody who really loves you.
    So you go and you stand on your own,
    and you leave on your own,
    and you go home and you cry and you want to die."

    Here's a few...

    'You think you're so clever, and classless, and free,
    But you're still f*cking peasants, as far as I can see'

    (John Lennon - Working Class Hero)

    'I'm as hard as I can get,
    You lie there, dripping wet...'

    (Roy Harper - 20th-century man)

    'There's no way out of here,
    Once you come in, you're in for good...'

    (Dave Gilmour - No Way Out)

    Re: Favorite Song Lyric

    too many... but any elvis costello is always a good thing...

    He's got all the things you need and some that you will never
    But you make him sound like frozen food, his love will last forever
    Still he knows what you want and what you don't allow
    And I hope that you're happy now
    (..i hope you’re happy now)

    I asked for water
    And they gave me rosé wine
    A horse that knows arithmetic
    And a dog that tells your fortune
    I want to buy you
    A big blue diamel
    Cheap white plastic shoes
    That don’t walk out and don’t let in..

    (…uncomplicated)

    and there's always...

    Life is hard
    And so am i
    You’d better give me something so I don’t die
    Novocaine for the soul, before I sputter out
    (eels, novocaine for the soul)

    Hmm... not a "favourite", but certainly an interesting one...

    "I intentionally ran over your dog" by AxCx (look them up on Wikipedia for their very NSFW real name and more of their 'delightful' song titles)

    YOUR DOG WAS YOUR ONLY FRIEND
    YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE SAVINGS FIXING IT'S BROKEN LEG
    YOU LOVED IT MORE THAN YOUR PARENTS LOVED YOU
    AND THEN I RAN IT OVER

    YOUR DOG WAS DUMB, AND NOW IT'S DEAD
    MY TIRE-TRACKS ARE TATTOOED ON IT'S HEAD
    MY TIRE-TRACKS ARE TATTOOED ON IT'S HEAD

    I DRAGGED IT 50 YARDS DOWN THE STREET
    AND YOU RAN AFTER ME IN TEARS
    I ALMOST CRASHED BECAUSE I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD
    THEN I TURNED AROUND, AND TRIED TO HIT YOU

    YOUR DOG WAS DUMB, AND NOW IT'S DEAD
    MY TIRE-TRACKS ARE TATTOOED ON IT'S HEAD
    MY TIRE-TRACKS ARE TATTOOED ON IT'S HEAD

    I think my favourite of their oeuvre is "Hitler was a sensitive man", perhaps followed by "You're Gay".

    Their songs are mercifully short...

    Re: Favorite Song Lyric

    Various bits from "Memory Lane" by Jim O'Rourke:

    It’s quite a gamble to speak out of place
    Those things could kill you but so could your face

    These things I say, may seem kinda cruel
    So here’s something from my heart to you
    Looking at you, reminds me of looking at the sun
    And how the blind are so damn lucky

    Those holes on your face could be used better ways
    Breathing’s a distraction when you chatter away

    These things I say, may seem to offend
    But not half as much, as I’d like to intend
    Listening to you, reminds me of
    A motor’s endless drone
    And how the deaf are so damn lucky

    I’d be happy, if life came to a stall
    Then I wouldn’t need my senses at all

    These things I say, might seem out of line
    But day to day, I’m right every time
    Looking at you, reminds me of
    Looking at the sun
    Too long

    Favourite song lyrics? Easy ...

    Star Trekking, across the universe. On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk. Star Trekking, across the universe. Boldly going forward, 'cause we can't find reverse. Lt. Uhura, report. There's Klingons on the starboard bow. Starboard bow, starboard bow. There's Klingons on the starboard bow. Starboard bow, Jim.

    And so on
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Stephen Lynch - Down to the old pub instead

    And she'll want you to sample the fruit of her loins
    But son, it'll taste like some old rusty coins


    I haven't laughed so much from a song.

    This one is also rather true:

    She'll retain her water, her breasts will be tender
    And every third word that you say will offend her
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
