Everybody's sayin' that the Scatman stutters
But doesn't ever stutter when he sings.
But what you don't know I'm gonna tell you right now
That the stutter and the scat is the same thing.
Yo I'm the Scatman.

ohhhh yeah.

Something by Tool or Incubus. They both have amazing lyrics.

In my fantasy I?m a pantomime
I?ll just move my hands and everyone sees what I mean
Words are too messy
And it?s way past time

Reinvent the sea

For Tool... Lateralus.

oh the way you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never

Once the stone you're crawling under

"Got your mind in submission
Got your life on the line
But nobody pulled the trigger
They just stepped aside
They be down by the water
While you watch 'em waving goodbye
They be callin' in the morning
They be hangin' on the phone
They be waiting for an answer
When you know nobody's home
And when the bell's stopped ringing
It was nobody's fault but your own
There were always ample warnings
There were always subtle signs
And you would have seen it comin'
But we gave you too much time
And when you said that no one's listening
Why'd your best friend drop a dime
Sometimes we get so tired of waiting
For a way to spend our time
An "It's so easy" to be social
"It's so easy" to be cool
Yeah it's easy to be hungry
When you ain't got **** to lose
And I wish that I could help you
With what you hope to find
But I'm still out here waiting
Watching reruns of my life
When you reach the point of breaking
Know it's gonna take some time
To heal the broken memories
That another man would need
Just to survive"
Coma - Guns N' Roses

04-14-2006, 12:20 PM
How did I let her inside?
We're drippin in sweat, and feelin' alright
Her lips were the last thing touched tonight,

I can't really say I have an acctaul favourite, but one of the is;
Recontruction Site- by The Weakerthans

Well I'm lost
I'm afraid
rope tied down a leaky boat
to the roof of a car on a road in the dark and its snowing
if I'm more than it means less
last call for happiness
im your dress near the back of your knees and your slip is showing
I'm a float in a summer parade
up the street in the town that you were born in
with the girl at the top wearing tool
and a Miss somewhere sash
waving like the queen
well beautys just another word
im never certain how to spell
go tell the nurse to turn the tv back on
and throw away my misery it never meant that much to me
it never sent a get well card
and i broke like a bad joke
somebody's uncle told
at a wedding reception in 1972
Where a little boy under a table with cake in his hair
Stared at the grown-ups feet as they danced and swayed
And his father laughed and talked on the long ride home
And his mother laughed and talked on the long ride home
And he thought about how everyone dies someday
And when tomorrow gets here where will yesterday be
And fell asleep in his brand new winter coat
Buy me a shiny new machine
That runs on lies and gasoline
And all those batteries we stole from smoke alarms
And disassembles my despair
Never took me anywhere It never once bought me a drink

well, I like it :)

Hand of fate is moving and the finger points to you
He knocks you to your feet and so what are you gonna do
Your tongue has frozen now you've got something to say
The piper at the gates of dawn is calling you his way

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the sun a newborn in the light
Say goodbye to gravity and say goodbye to death
Hello to eternity and live for every breath

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

The ferryman wants his money you ain't going to give it back
He can push his own boat as you set up off the track
Nothing you can contemplate will ever be the same
Every second is a new spark, sets the universe aflame

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the sun a newborn in the light
Brothers and their fathers joining hands and make a chain
The shadow of the Wicker Man is rising up again

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
-iron maiden- I like it cuz well ....its good :P

Sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey ?cause I?m going far away
I?d like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally Maclennane

The Pogues - Sally Maclennane

04-15-2006, 08:15 PM
My favorite:

Melodical prodigal flows,
Hypnotical blows to brain pieces,
When I reach this pinnacle, cynical, clinical,
Microphone autobots waiting on lotto spots,
Trying to rock.

K-OS- Heaven Only knows. Kickass.

04-15-2006, 10:47 PM
"...The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything"

Hurt- NIN

04-15-2006, 11:08 PM
I Can't Remember Anything
Can't Tell If this Is True or Dream
Deep down Inside I Feel to Scream
this Terrible Silence Stops Me

Now That the War Is Through with Me
I'm Waking up I Can Not See
That There Is Not Much Left of Me
Nothing Is Real but Pain Now

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God,wake Me

Back in the Womb its Much Too Real
in Pumps Life That I must Feel
but Can't Look Forward to Reveal
Look to the Time When I'll Live

Fed Through the Tube That Sticks in Me
Just like a Wartime Novelty
Tied to Machines That Make Me Be
Cut this Life off from Me

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God,wake Me
Now the World Is Gone I'm Just One
Oh God,help Me Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God Help Me

Darkness Imprisoning Me
All That I See
Absolute Horror
I Cannot Live
I Cannot Die
Trapped in Myself
Body My Holding Cell

Landmine Has Taken My Sight
Taken My Speech
Taken My Hearing
Taken My Arms
Taken My Legs
Taken My Soul
Left Me with Life in Hell

Metallica - "One"

Teabag of Truth

I like the ones in my sig, from Villainy and Virtue by Dead To Fall.

04-16-2006, 05:50 AM
I usually can't have a favorite song without knowing the words, so I have tons of favorite lines like:
I'll hide my true face, like Dorian Grey - James Blunt - Tears and Rain

I would go on, but I really shouldn't, I just bombed the hell out of another topic as is

04-16-2006, 11:28 AM
Well you're dirty and sweet, Clad in black, Don't look back, And I love you, You're dirty and sweet oh yea- Marc Bolan

Hot chocolate boy by Beat Happening:
he's always waitin
gotta make a move to tell her
hot chocolate boy
he's never had one
hot chocolate bad one
hot choclate boy
walk by at midnight
thinking he could maybe see her
he's never met one
hot chocolate wet one
hot chocolate boy
hot chocolate boy
every girl yelling
wanting him to be the terror
hot chocolate boy
he's a sensation
hot chocolate nation
hot chocolate boy
whatchin TV
watching tv has nobody and no one at all
deep sweet and bitter
spoon and a plate for breakfast
hot chocolate boy
hot frosted creamy
he was only dreamy (dreaming?)
hot chocolate boy

and The smiths - Suffer little children

Over the moors,take me to the moors
dig a shallow grave
and I'll lay me down

Lesley-Anne, with your pretty white beads
oh John, you'll never be a man
and you'll never see your home again
oh Manchester, so much to answer for

Edward, see those alluring lights?
tonight will be your very last night

a woman said "I know my son is dead
I'll never rest my hands on his scared head"

Hindley wakes and Hindley says:
"Wherever he has gone, I have gone "

But fresh lilaced moorland fields
cannot hide the stoild stench of death

Hindley wakes and Hindley says:
"Whatever he has done, I have done"

But this is no easy ride
for a child cries

"find me...find me, nothing more
we're on a sullen misty moor
we may be dead and we may be gone
but we will be right by your side
until the day you die
this is no easy ride
we will haunt you when you laugh
yes, you could say we're a team
you might sleep

Oh Manchester, so much to answer for
Oh Manchester, so much to answer for
Over the moor, I'm on the moor
the child is on the moor

04-17-2006, 10:59 AM
If I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way
