Call me a safe bet?
I'm betting im not.

I need you like water in my lungs.

Die young and save yourself.

If looks could really kill
Then my profession would be staring.
And if ever You come near, I will hold up high a mirror.
Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as You.

So, is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with.
Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish.
I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids.
Have another drink and drive yourself home.
I hope there's ice on all the roads.
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
and again when your head goes through the windshield.

And is that what you call tact?
You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back.
So let's end this call, and end this conversation.
and is that what you call a getaway?
well tell me what you got away with.
cause you left the frays from the ties you severed
when you say best friends means friends forever

They say you need to pray if you want to go to heaven

You are calm and reposed, let your beauty unfold.
Pale white like the skin stretched over your bones.
Spring keeps you ever close, you are second hand smoke.
You are so fragile and thin, standing trial for your sins.
Holding on to yourself the best you can.
You are the smell before rain, you are the blood in my veins.

Also, the ones listed above, I like the No Seatbelt Song for lyrics especially.

Actually, anything he's ever written I pretty much love.

Yes that sounds fanboyish, but I really don't care.

I wrote your name and burned it
to see the colour of the flame.
But it burned out the whole spectrum
as if you were everything.
Mine just burned gold. A normal flame...
I am not anything...

And all that I remember is the feeling of waking up.
We were kids, you were the sun to which my eyes would not adjust.
We were kids, I was a fountain, you could never drink enough.

Someone's already quoted 'Seventy Times 7' (shit, is it 7 or 9?), which is what I would have said.

Other than that, there's a few good one-liners.

'This is war.
Every line is about who I don't wanna write about anymore'
- from "Okay I Believe You..."

'And we learn, as we age, we've learned nothing'
- from "Jaws Theme Swimming"

'The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed'
- from "Guernica"

As for the first CD, I don't have the lyric book to hand so I can't recall anything in particular. But he is definitely a talented lyricist, whether you like the subject matter or not.

'He is the lamb, she is the slaughter'

'And even if her plane crashes tonight she'll find some way to disappoint me,
by not burning in the wreckage, or drowning at the bottom of the sea'
Blah.

What we invented, I am now ending"

"And the coastline is quiet, while we're quiet we're loosing control, and we're silent but sure we invented the cure that will wash out my memories, the harpoon is loaded, the cage is lowered, the water is red like you"

"Your using all your looks that you thrown from the start,
if you let me have my way I swear I'll tear you apart,
cause it's all you can be, your a drunk and your scared,
it's ladies night, all the girls drink for free."


There's too many more to count, but those haven't been mentioned.

I think it was on their old old demos.

I've only heard it like twice though
And if ever You come near, I will hold up high a mirror.
Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as You.

Yea, I just downloaded it.

It was off a split ep or somthing like that.

give me one night inside of your thighs
a million girls would kill to be you right now

From My Nine Rides Shotgun and

You call me on the phone, and you don't even want to talk.
You're staring at me from across the room,
Then turn your back when I walk up.
We got inches away, and I never even got close.

Moshi Moshi is so cutesy it's disgusting almost, but in a good way.

How about:

So We've fixed you up with cement galloshes
no one can save you now
Unless you know friends among fish
there will still be no air to breathe
and you can drink up the entire ocean
and still find someone to be everything we know that you'll never be

Their lyrics are so much better if you know the Bible:

like:

"cause i've seen what happens to the wicked and proud when they try to take over the thrown for the crown"

"Who will cast the first stone?
You can sin or spend the night all alone"

or the title "Seventy Times Seven"...all of which are biblical references.

But my all time favorite lyrics are from "Flying At Tree Level"
"We were doomed from the start....as starters are...why am i doing this?"
"i see my baby..shes starry-eyed..i hear my bones break all the time...
and i see my baby...shes starry-eyed....she follows..dont call me unkind."
a little lie says you'd like nothing better.....

I am all you've ever wanted.
What all the other boys all promised.

Hope you come down with something they can't diagnose
Don't have the cure for.

Plus anything from Deja and the No-Seatbelt Song+ everything ever.

"And even if her plane crashes tonight,
she'll find some way to dissapoint me,
by not burning in the wreckage,
or drowning at the bottom of the sea"

"But when I say Let's keep in touch,
I really mean I wish that you'd grow up"

"So is that what you call a getaway? (etc.)"

"Die young and save yourself"

"You're just jealous 'cause i'm young and in love,
your stomach's filled up but you're starved for conversation,
you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed,
and you're tearing up your photos 'cause you wanna forget,
it's over..."

"I begin to hate you for your face, not just the things you do"

The second line in that picture is

"We love you. We miss you. I love you so much that it hurts my head."

"we love you. we miss you. i love you so much that it hurts my head."

Did anyone mention Deja?

The one song that I really dont like by them was the "O Holy Night" song. It just sounded weird in a way.

did anyone ever hear their song "car"?
it's short and sweet.
good line from it is:
"you get car i'll get the night off, we'll get the chance to take the world apart and figure out how it works."
