hey guys! im taking a calligraphy course (I'm an art minor) and for a project we need a quote around 30 words long. I was trying to think of a cool, deep song lyric, something badass like metallica or pantera or something would be sick.

my professor wants it to kind-of 'fit' with the alphabet, which is all-caps and looks like this:


on the right there.


There will be 4 projects and different alphabets throughout the semester so I'll take all the ideas I can get!


Thanks for your help guys!

Really, did you think we were too stupid to know what the alphabet looks like?

thanks for the unnecesary attitude man.

imo, a pantera quote kinda loses some significance if its written in an alphabet like this one....




i realize you know what the 26 letters look like....

The wreckage to plagues we sing of
On the breath of harmony
Submersed, forgotten, and singing in suffering
While I stand behind these shimmering tired eyes
Watching your faithless stride
Deep into hell


that's a good one

Come to think of it, my penis should've listened to more death metal.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

"I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning forks does a raw blink on Hari-Kiri rock. I need scissors! 61!"

Use that.

Imedit: Didn't really read the post it's not from a song but use it anyway.

1. You're welcome.
2.You're original post said nothing about the fucking FONT of the alphabet, it showed us what the alphabet looks like, you dope.
3. Welcome (back) to the Pit. Enjoy your stay, dodo brain.
4. Metallica's "Fade to Black" sounds like it should work.

i don't fully understand the project, but this may be my favorite lyric, probably too edgy for school though

"The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Qur'an is mute
If you burned them all together you'd be close to the truth"

here' The Nail by children of bodom

Your eyes are full of hate, forty one,
thats good
Hate keeps a man alive, its gives him strength
While cutting their shadows, kill them into the dark trough
Black is all the way, furious never-ending darkness show
Only way could be hard in their small and human nation
I kill the first man, getting by death, we are God, through death

[Chorus]
Go, get up... victims that died
Waiting for death, I should cry

Take the farther off to cut your means,
Listening up for afraid by means,
They showed laughing me for my heart
So they wake up these scythes, following me,
Cold wind blow out, now to go,
Let it go again with the scythes

(Something wild!)

It`s got the light, blow it out within you
Never let the best shot come from ****ing Avalon, that`s the one
Time to feel my spirit... I gathered my souls
Beat my night to kill them into my sin (doom... get up!)

[Chorus:]
Well go, get up... victims that died
Waiting for death, I should cry

[Laughter]

I can`t wait to for my heart...
I can`t get up, shadows... down (can't get up!)
Set them along, time is right, far too along...
They wake me up (wake me up!)

Your eyes are full of hate, forty one,
thats good
Hate keeps a man alive, its gives him strength

all that has been, and that's to be. lord, i'm just killing time, and time's killing me.


that always struck me. BLS is pretty similar to 'Tallica/Pantera right?...

... right?
"And after all of this, I am amazed...

...that I am cursed far more than I am praised."

You mean a font, not alphabet.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

Maybe some Bob Dylan?

Or maybe China Cat Sunflower or Terrapin Station by the Grateful Dead?

I think something with imagery would be real cool.

Or Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles... that has some pretty good imagery.

Aerials - System

Life is a waterfall
Were one in the river
And one again after the fall
Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves
But we find it all....
Cause we are the ones that want to play
Always want to go
But you never want to stay
And we are the ones that want to choose
Always want to play
But you never want to lose
Aerials, in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life
#22
wake up
and face me
don't play dead
because maybe
someday
i will walk away and say
"you ****ing disappoint me.
maybe you're better off this way."
Go Veg.
