My favorite lyrics don't rhyme. I love the lyrics and the unique singing, and here they are:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nRNoXT_gUc

Tina lives in berlin
Her voice so seldom
On my machine
Is here tonight
And Im on the market
And when Im on a market
Words move faster
Wire and clouds move
Thin between us
Like a skin
Like a salty skin
For a seed
A fat circles
A smiling smiling
Her voice so intentionally
Smiling
And a cloud between us
And these are my intentions
Pushing [x7]
Push
Ah [x10]
? the blonde
Is carrying something
Is carrying me
And someone I used to be
Great plastic someone
Blue plastic girl
Your dream is
Pushing [x5]
Pushed away your body is
Pushing [x3]
Pushed away your
Come me for the unbelieve
Carry on song
Lipstick fodder
The boyfriend blond
Between the holes of sheets
Is professionally poised
Faces watching her
Shes watching the faces
Watching her
Pushin [x3]
Push
Pushing [x3]
Love [x5]
Ha
Pushing [x3]
Push
Push
Pushing [x3]
Love [x9]
Ha [x10]

Who are you to wave your finger?
You must have been out your hair
Eye hole deep in muddy waters
You practically raised the dead

Rob the grave to snow the cradle
Then burn the evidence down
Soapbox house of cards and glass so
Don't go tossin' your stones around

You must have been high

Foot in mouth and head up ass
So whatcha talkin' 'bout?
Difficult to dance 'round this one
'til you pull it out. boy,

You must have been so high

Steal, borrow, refer, save your shady inference
Kangaroo done hung the jury with the innocent

Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo
(Musta) got lemon juice up in your eye
When you pissed all over my black kettle.

You must have been high!

Who are you to wave your finger?
So full of it
Eye balls deep in muddy waters
F**kin' hypocrite
[Pot lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]


Liar, lawyer, mirror, show me. What's the difference?
Kangaroo done hung the guilty with the innocent.

Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo
(Musta) got lemon juice up in your eye
When you pissed all over my black kettle.

You must've been...

So who are you to wave your finger?
Who are you to wave your fatty fingers at me?
You must have been out your mind

Weepin' shades of indigo
Shed without a reason
Weepin' shades of indigo

Liar, lawyer - mirror, for you what's the difference?
Kangaroo be stoned. He's guilty as the government.

Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo
(Musta) got lemon juice up in your eye
Now when you pissed all over my black kettle.

You must've been high!

Eyeballs deep in muddy waters
Eyeballs deep in muddy waters
Ganja? P-lease!
You must have been out your mind

Damien Rice's are my biggest lyrical inspiration. They're so good and so well written along with his music. I'll find my favorites real quick.

Really anything from this guy is amazing but these are IMO the best written and most unique I've ever heard.

EDIT:

she lives with an orange tree and a girl that does yoga
she picks the dead ones from the ground when we come over
and she gives i get without giving anything to me
like a morning sun
like a morning
like a morning sun
like a good good morning sun
the girl that does yoga
when we come over
the girl that does yoga

he lives in a little house on the side of a little hill
picks the litter from the ground, litter little brother spills
he gives i get without giving anything to me
and the dogs they run
and the dogs they
and the dogs they run
in the good good morning sun
side of a little hill
litter little brother spills
side of a little hill

and she's always dressed in white
she's like an angel man she burns my eyes
when she turns she pulls a smile
we drive her 'round man she drives us wild
and she moves like a little girl
i become a child man she moves my world
and she gets splashed in paint and turns away and leaves me standing...

she lives with an orange tree and a girl that does yoga
got a wolf to keep her warm when he comes over
she gives he gets without giving anything to see
and the day it ends
and the day it
and the day it ends
and there's no need for me
with a girl that does yoga
when we come over
with a girl that does yoga
"We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment"

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine
Staying home to watch the rain
And you are young and life is long
And there is time to kill today
And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to nought
Or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desparation is the English way
The time is gone
The song is over
Thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells
sup?

Bob Dylan - Its Alright Ma (Bleeding)

Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying.

Pointed threats, they bluff with scorn
Suicide remarks are torn
From the fool's gold mouthpiece
The hollow horn plays wasted words
Proves to warn
That he not busy being born
Is busy dying.

Temptation's page flies out the door
You follow, find yourself at war
Watch waterfalls of pity roar
You feel to moan but unlike before
You discover
That you'd just be
One more person crying.

So don't fear if you hear
A foreign sound to your ear
It's alright, Ma, I'm only sighing.

As some warn victory, some downfall
Private reasons great or small
Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
To make all that should be killed to crawl
While others say don't hate nothing at all
Except hatred.

There is more but it's too long.

As the footsteps die out forever-Streetlight Manifesto

She was diagnosed on a Friday,
The kids were almost home,
The kids were on their way back home from school,
Lying face down in the gutter,
Of unaccomplished dreams,
And broken memories of things to come.
"Sorry ma'am, I really am. I had to break the news.
I had to make the phone call to tell you that you're due,
You know where, I'll tell you when,
And I suggest you start living these next three weeks,
The best way that you can."

Every night for three long weeks,
She’d roam the hallways half asleep,
And as the footsteps fade away,
In my mind, I could swear, I could swear, I heard her say:
Don't wait for me, you’ve got a lot to do, you’ve got a lot to be,
And in the end maybe, I'll see you there.

Lost her strength on a Saturday,
Spent the day in bed.
Yeah, I'm fine; it's just the flu she said, with a smile,
But when they turned their backs,
The tears would flow.
She knew she only had a while, to live,
To breathe, to be, to see, to bleed,
To stand on her own two weakened feet,
"And so I pray everyday: don't take my mother away"

Every night for three long weeks,
She’d roam the hallways half asleep,
And as the footsteps fade away,
In my mind, I could swear, I could swear, I heard her say:
Don't wait for me, you’ve got a lot to do, you’ve got a lot to be,
And in the end maybe, I'll see you there.

Every night for three long weeks,
She’d roam the hallways half asleep,
And as the footsteps fade away,
In my mind, I could swear, I could swear, I heard her say:
Don't wait for me, you’ve got a lot to do, you’ve got a lot to be,
And in the end maybe, I'll see you there.
And in the end you know ill see you,
There and in the end I’ll see you there.

Don’t wait for me, you’ve got a lot, to do you’ve got a lot, to be,
And in the end maybe, I’ll see you there.
I'd just like to say I fall into the 5% of us on this site who aren't metalheads.

very seldom are whole songs lyrically perfect to me. however, a few odd lines stand out to me here and there. so i guess i don't really have any favourite
"And after all of this, I am amazed...

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

Children of a Worthless God - Exodus

Brainwashed into madness,
your children are killers without fear
Manipulate and dominate,
stealing their lives for your hate
Twisted perverted minds,
think as we do or you die
Demagogue, fanatical tyrant
a false prophet seething with lies

I you fear, seeing through your lies
You I fear, raping of innocent minds

Folow us blindly or die like a dog
Blood mixed with sand for this holy war
Your saviors a killer, you die for allah
You are all children of a worthless god

Propagation of violence
your one god a disease upon man
Execution, crucifiction
the answer for those not in your plan
The penalty for contempt against your god
is death and nothing else
Ignorant infidels
are subhuman and will all burn in hell

I you fear, seeing through your lies
You I fear, raping of innocent minds

Folow us blindly or die like a dog
Blood mixed with sand for this holy war
Your saviors a killer, you die for allah
You are all children of a worthless god

Smite the pervets and the obstinate
praising the death of the free
United States of islam
that's what you would like it to be
Violate the unbelievers
praising crimes against man
Human rights mean nothing
Doctrine of death a scourge upon man

I you fear, seeing through your lies
You I fear, raping of innocent minds

Folow us blindly or die like a dog
Blood mixed with sand for this holy war
Your saviors a killer, you die for allah
You are all children of a worthless god

Well here's a song I really rate... Nowhere by Therapy?. Reading the lyrics in this sterile form doesn't really do their simple intelligence, beauty and finesse any justice really. Sometimes the things that don't beat about the bush and don't use a million metaphors, renders of alliteration and simile abuse are the most powerful of musical poetry.

Heaven kicked you out
You wouldn't wear a tie
Staring at some pictures by yourself
At something that you want to have but will never get

You get drunk every night
You can't get drunk on life
Shouting at the world you'll never change
But it's what's inside you've got to rearrange

Making up for what you never had
Losing every single thing you've ever had

Going nowhere

theres a pair of lines in Redneck from Lamb Of God that i really love

"You can tell the same lie a thousand times but it never gets any more true
So close your eyes once more and once more believe that they all still believe in you"

Killing is so much easier than forgiving... So much more fun too

Frank's Wild Years-Tom Waits

Frank settled down in the Valley,
and he hung his wild years on a
nail that he drove through his
wife's forehead.

He sold used office furniture out
there on San Fernando Road and
assumed a $30,000 loan at
15 1/4 % and put a down payment
on a little two bedroom place.

His wife was a spent piece of used jet trash
Made good bloody-marys, kept her mouth
shut most of the time, had a little Chihuahua
named Carlos that had some kind of skin
disease and was totally blind.

They had a thoroughly modern kitchen;
self-cleaning oven (the whole bit)
Frank drove a little sedan.
They were so happy.

One night Frank was on his way home
from work, stopped at the liquor store,
picked up a couple of Mickey's Big Mouth’s.
Drank 'em in the car on his way to the
Shell station; he got a gallon of gas in a can.

Drove home, doused everything in
the house, torched it.
Parked across the street laughing,
watching it burn, all Halloween
orange and chimney red.

Frank put on a top forty station,
got on the Hollywood Freeway
headed North.

Never could stand that dog.
What have we learned.....

Words are weightless here on earth,
because they're free


.....from this wee exercise?

Brandon Boyd's
Cedric Bixler-Zavala's

Oh come on, Boyd's a good singer and comes up with the occasional lovely line but usually he is pretty terrible. Why does he feel the need to use stupidly long words? Sometimes it really is cringe worthy...

"Love is a verb here in my room" - both crap and lovely at the same time.

Here's my 2nd contribution - Innocence faded by Dream Theater -

Animation
Breathes a cloudless mind
Fascination
Leaves the doubting blind
Until the circle breaks and wisdom lies ahead
The faithful live awake
The rest remain misled

Some will transcend spinning years
One as if time disappears

Innocence faded
The mirror falls behind you
Trinity jaded
I break down walls to find you

Callow and vain
Fixed like a fossil, shrouding pain
Passionless stage
Distant like brothers
Wearing apathetic displays
Sharing flesh like envy in cages
Condescending
Not intending to end

Some will transcend spinning years
One as if time disappears

Beginnings get complicated
The farther we progress
Opinions are calculated
Immune to openness

Beyond the circles edge
Were driven by her blessings
Forever hesitating
Caught beneath the wheel
#24
Wish I was too dead to cry
My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater
You don't need to bother
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

Wish I was too dead to care
If indeed I cared at all
Never had a voice to protest
So you fed me **** to digest
I wish I had a reason;
my flaws are open season
For this, I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying

You don't need to bother
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

Wish I'd died instead of lived
A zombie hides my face
Shell forgotten
with its memories
Diaries left
with cryptic entries

And you don't need to bother
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

You don't need to bother
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on
I'll never live down my deceit

Bother-Stone Sour
When life gives you lemons just say fuck the lemons and bail

Brand New - "Limousine"

If you know what this song is actually about it's so much more emotional. But it's very emotional when just relating it to anything.

"K, here's your ride.
Get your petals out and lay them in the aisle
Pretend you are God, and grow,
And that it's your own day to wed
We've found your man.
He's drinking up. He's all-American,
and he'll drive.
He's volunteered with grace to end your life.
We'll tidy up.
It's sad to hold, but leave your shell to us
You explode, you firefly, you tiny boat with oars,
Feather oars
The world tilts back and pours and pours
And so, you satellite, you tidal wave,
You're a big surprise
And I've one more night to be your mother."

Her signal was interrupted.
My baby's frequency not strong enough
Remain in my hands and smile.
"We will miss you but in time you'll get set up,
we will write"

Hey, you beauty supreme.
Yeah, you were right about me.
But can I get myself out from underneath
This guilt that will crush me
and in the choir I saw our sad Messiah.
He was bored and tired of my laments.
Said, "I died for you one time, but never again"
Never again, never again, never again
Never again, never again, never again
Never again, never again... [continues in the background]

Well I love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

One'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Two'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Three'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Four'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Five'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply,
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Six will love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Seven loves you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.


Seven loves you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
'cause I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

(I'll never have to buy adjacent plots of earth
We'll never have to rot together underneath dirt
I'll never have to lose my baby in the crowd
I should be laughing right now)

1st two verses on Radiohead's 'Creep'.

When you were here before,
Couldn't look you in your eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so ****ing special

I'm the man, I'm the king, I'm the one,
That's pure inside,
Everyday, everyway I smell of suicide

Her green plastic watering can
For her fake chinese rubber plant
In fake plastic earth.
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plants
Just to get rid of itself.
And it wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out.

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns.
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins.
And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out.

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love.
But I cant help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run
And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out.

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted,
All the time, all the time
"There are millions of people in the world, and none of those people are an extra. They're all leads in their own stories."

Hey! do you know what you are?
Youre an asshole! an asshole!

Some of you might not agree
cause you probably likes a lot of misery
But think a while and you will see...
Broken hearts are for assholes
Broken hearts are for assholes
Are you an asshole?
Broken hearts are for assholes
Are you an asshole too?
Whatcha gonna do, cause youre an asshole...

Maybe you think youre a lonely guy
Maybe you think youre too tough to cry
So you went to the grape,
Just to give it a try
And dagmar
Without a doubt, the ugliest sonofabitch I ever saw in my life
Was his name...
One two three four!
The whiskers sticking out from underneath of his
Pancake make-up
And yet he was a beautiful lady
Nearly drove you insane
Lets talk about leather: leatherrrrrr
And so you kissed a little sailor
Tex abel, starring in the latest shepperton production:
Who had just blew in from spain
Sir richard pump-a-loaf
You sniffed the reeking buns of angel
The story of a demented bread-boffer
And acted like it was cocaine
Cucumber pud annexed to a fine whole-wheat loaf
You were dazzled by the exciting new costume of ko-ko
Then on tuesday night, ceasars back in town
In a way you cant explain
Facing off in a no-holds-barred tag team grudge match
With kona.
And so you worked the wall with michael
Three-hundred-seventy-nine pounds of samoan dynamite
Which gave your back an awful strain
Volcanic hell
But you came back on sunday for the gong show
Next thursday, teen towns finest...
But you forgot what I was sayin
cause youre an asshole, youre an asshole
Thats right
Youre an asshole, youre an asshole
Yes, yes
Youre an asshole, youre an asshole
Thats right
Youre an asshole, youre an asshole

Now you been to the grape n you been to the chest
n now I think you know what you are: youre an asshole

You say you cant live with what you been through
Well, ladies you can be an asshole too
You might pretend you aint got one on the bottom of you,
But dont fool yerself girl
Its lookin at you
Dont fool yerself girl
Its winkin at you
Dont fool yerself girl
Its blinkin at you
Thats why I say
Im gonna ram it, ram it, ram it
Ram it up yer poop chute
Corn hole
Ram it, ram it, ram it
Ram it up yer poop chute
Fist ****
Ram it, ram it, ram it
Ram it up yer poop chute
Wrist-watch; crisco
Ram it, ram it, ram it
Ram it up yer poop chute
Pud!

Dont fool yerself, girl
Its goin right up yer poop chute
Dont fool yerself, girl
Its goin right up yer poop chute

Well, I dont have a favorite song full of lyrics, but rather, a lyricist. And that person is Chuck Schuldiner. Proably not so much the "Scream Bloody Gore" and "Leprosy" (kinda) stuff, but Individual Thought Patterns, Human, Symbolic, and The Sound of Perseverance have some amazing, philisophical lyrics in them.

Off the top of my head, here's one:

"What would you do without your narrow minded approach to life that reflects your lack of abilities?...Your opinions are self destructive."


Amazing.

I am quite loving "Deadly Lethal Ninja Assassin" by Reuben at the moment, just because I am finding the lyrics very relevant. Well some of them anyway, a couple of the verses are a bit weird...

"Shall i bother trying to do it properly? God I went out of tune there... I ****ing well/around..."

Soft little body swollen by the sun,
Waiting for a break that he knows will never come,
Four brittle limbs weak from under-use,
And a head full of words,

Long green hair, funny looking dude,
Big mouth on him and a wicked attitude,
And at first impression he must seem kinda rude,
But he does his best, yeah,

Anyway....
I wanna be just like you,
Get myself a job and a really cool tattoo,
I wanna be just like you,
Get myself a job and a really cool tattoo,
And I'm walking home beside you,
Your hair is long and blonde and your eyes are both bright blue,
I wanna be just like you in all I do,

Jimmy got drunk on his way to class,
Swinging from the roof, showed everyone his ass,
And if you him why he shakes his head and laughs,
"There was nothing for it!"

Stacey got laid! Boyfriend number one!
Took him to her room and had a little fun,
And she's wearing out her mouth, she's telling everyone,
And you can't ignore it,

Anyway...
Anyway....
I wanna be just like you,
Get myself a job and a really cool tattoo,
I wanna be just like you,
Get myself a job and a really cool tattoo,
And I'm walking home beside you,
Your hair is long and blonde and your eyes are both bright blue,
I wanna be just like you,

Get myself a job and a really cool tattoo, (repeat)

Don't take it so hard, you always take it so hard,
Don't take it so hard, don't take it to heart,
Don't take it so hard,
It's only cos I like you,
You are everything I wish I could be,
And maybe if I'm like you,
Baby would you like me?

You're dressed like a Victorian at a swimming pool, (repeat)
You're dressed like a deadly lethal ninja assassin,
ALL IN BLACK!
YEAH!

I want to be just like you, (repeat)
I want to be just like you, get myself a job and a really cool tattoo (repeat)
And I made you Trent Reznor, spinning on his back with a motorised action,
You made me a red and black scarf, wrap it round my neck but no motorised action,
No motorised action, (repeat)

Weeping Willow-The Verve

When morning breaks
We hide our eyes and our love's aching
Nothing's strange

It was in our hands from 6 to 10
It slipped right out again

There'll be no better time
There'll be no better way
There'll be no better day to save me
Save me
Yeah, save me

I hope you see like I see
I hope you see what I see
I hope you feel like I feel

And the world don't stop
There is no time for cracking up
Believe me friend
Cause when freedom comes
I'll be long gone
You know it has to end

There'll be no better time
There'll be no better way
There'll be no better day to save me
Save me
Yeah, save me
Yeah, save me
I hope you see what I see
I hope you feel like I feel
Someone to stand beside me
Beside me
Beside me
Beside me
Beside me

Weeping willow
The pills under my pillow
Weeping willow
Pills under my pillow
Weeping willow
The Gun under your pillow
Weeping willow
Beside me
Beside me
Beside me
Beside me

Chop Suey by System of a Down

Wake up
(wake up)
Grab a brush and put on a little make up
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup
(hide the scars to fade away the shakeup)
Whyd you leave the keys up on the table
There you go create another fable
You wanted to
Grab a brush and put on a little makeup
You wanted to
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup
You wanted to
Whyd you leave the keys up on the table
I dont think you trust in my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die (die)
Wake up
(wake up)
Grab a brush and put on a little make up
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup
(hide the scars to fade away the shakeup)
Whyd you leave the keys up on the table
There you go create another fable
You wanted to
Grab a brush and put on a little makeup
You wanted to
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup
You wanted to
Whyd you leave the keys up on the table
I dont think you trust in my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die
In my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die
Father father father father
Father into your hand I comend my spirit
Father into your hand why have you forsaken me in your eyes
Forsaken me in your thoughts
Forsaken me in your heart
Forsaken me ohh
Trust in my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die
In my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die

I'm seraph. I'm snake.
Controlled, pre-programmed entrapped soul.
Extraneous powers conditions my mind.
I'm vermin. I'm fake.
Causality ignores the persecutory illutions of free will.
Morality justifies no cause,
beyond reason: we eat, reproduce and die.
A genetically conditioned psychomotor machine.
I'm seraph. I'm snake. An evolutionary mistake.

Entering hellbound dominion, acid rain,
human mortification. Hades glows red-hot.
Howling mind accelerates, trapped in this time-knot.
Place there is none: we go backward and forward and there is no place.
Horror or infinity, internal draught
floor a tempest sanitorium.
Who are you? Why are you here?
No chemical aid. No keys. No doors, walls or locks.
Wing-dipped phoenix. Ashes: you asshole!

Immolate reliance suffocate defiance.
Cardboard figure, skeletal man in venomous confinement.
New dawning of fate. No exit from this torment, sickness and hate.
All in vain, everlasting suffering in pain.
Constricting steel headbands. Adrenaline boil,
temperature rise. Pressure succeed
in crushing my skull, destroying my seed.
Divine epiphany of pyrocatharsis.
Internal ascension to skyward domains.
Preparation for rebirth.

And more. Has to be heard, though. It's the most amazing lyrics ever, and the way they're wrapped around the music is simply mind-blowing.
I'm a communist. Really.

Modest Mouse- 3rd planet

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
I've got this thing that I consider my only art of ****ing people over

My boss just quit the job
Says he's going out to find blind spots and he'll do it

The third planet is sure that they're being watched
By an eye in the sky that can't be stopped
When you get to the promised land
Your going to shake that eye's hand

Your heart felt good
It was dripping pitch and made of wood
And your hands and knees
Felt cold and wet on the grass to me

Well, outside naked, shivering, looking blue
From the cold sunlight that's reflected off the moon
Baby cum angels fly around you
Reminding you we used to be three and not just two
And that's how the world began
And that's how the world will end

A third had just been made and we were swimming in the
water
Didn't know then, was it a son, was it a daughter?
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
And another had been found, another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic
And how

Well, the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were
And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth

Your heart felt good
It was dripping pitch and made of wood
And your hands and knees
Felt cold and wet on the grass to me

Well, outside naked, shivering, looking blue
From the cold sunlight that's reflected off the moon
Baby cum angels fly around you
Reminding you we used to be three and not just two
And that's how the world began
And that's how the world will end

A third had just been made and we were swimming in the
water
Didn't know then, was it a son, was it a daughter?
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
And another had been found, another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic

Well, the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were
And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
I've got this thing that I consider my only art of ****ing people over
