Tom. F---ing. Waits.

Now they surrounded the house,
They smoked him out, took him off in chains.
The sky turned black and bruised
And we had months of heavy rains.
Now the ravens nest in the rotten roof
At Chenoweth's old place,
And no one's asking Cal about that scar upon his face
'Cause there's nothing strange about an axe with bloodstains in the barn.
There's always some killin' you've got to do around the farm.
-- "Murder in the Red Barn" from "Bone Machine." I'm right now turning that song into a movie.

I got to keep my eyes open
So i can see my Lord
I'm gonna watch the horizon
For a brand new Ford

I can hear him rolling on down the lane
I said Hollywood be thy name
Jesus gonna be, be here soon
-- "Jesus Gonna Be Here" from "Bone Machine." Seriously, everyone should own that album.


I also have a soft spot for Karen O's obscure symbolism and simplicity.

Can't say why I kept it from you
My, those quiet eyes become you
Leave it where it can't remind us
Turn this all around behind us
Oh, well I know
I'll fall right in to keep you out
I’d like to tell you all about it
-- "Turn Into" from "Show Your Bones."


And a guy I know named Kevin, half of the band The K-Macks Endeavor. www.myspace.com/kmacksendeavor

We pulled into debt-ridden Georgia,
The lights were dying down, my mind was making rounds.
And I couldn't help but look beyond the dumpsters and the potholes
And maybe make my fears go down the road.
And I see the lack of hope, but I feel that I can dream.
But I'm fearing that is all it will ever be.
-- "Among the Ash Heaps" from "Softly Rock the Ghetto." Check them out, they're amazing.
Can't stop the signal.

Why are people still discussing this? Chris Barnes or Corpsegrinder is the correct answer.

No. Everybody dies. And one day, given that your relationship doesn't crash and burn like so many do, one of you will end up deep in sorrow while watching the other one die.

Bob Dylan, no contest...ever.

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Adam Duritz of Counting Crows. Here's a few samples:

Quote by Mr Jones

Well, I'm gonna paint my picture
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
Yeah, well, you know gray is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a gray guitar and play


Quote by Mrs Potter's Lullaby

Well, I woke up in mid-afternoon,
'Cause that's when it all hurts the most
I dream I never know anyone at the party,
And I'm always the host
If dreams are like movies,
Then memories are films about ghosts
You can never escape,
You can only move south down the coast

Someone's probably already said it, but Bob Dylan.
Hurricane is absolutely incredible.

EDIT:// I also love the works of Lennon/McCartney/Harrison as well...
Possibly Plant/Page as well. Good duo there..

Ringo never did much for me... He was the silly Beatle.

Saul Williams anyone?

I can recite the grass on the hill and memorize the moon

I know the cloudforms of love by heart

and have brought tears to the eye of a storm

and my memory banks vaults offorests and amazon river banks

and i've screamed them into sunsets that echo in earthquakes

shadows have been my spotlight as I monologue the night and dialogue with days

soliloquies of wind and breeze applauded by sun rays

we put language in zoos to observe caged thought

and tossed peanuts and p-funk at intellect

and mother****ers think these are metaphors

i speak what I see

all words and worlds are metaphors of me

my life was authored by the moon

footprints written in soil

the fountain pen of martian men

novelling human toil

and yes, the soil speaks highly of me

but earth seeds root me poet-tree

now, maybe i'm too serious

too little here to matter

though i'm riddled with the reason of the sun

i stand up comets with the audience of lungs

this body of laughter is it with me or at me?

hue more or less though gender's mute

and the punch line has this lifeline at it's root

i'm a star this life's the suburbs, I commute

I'd have to say Paul Banks, of Interpol. He writes great lyrics, which come to be great songs. What I really love about the lyrics is how from one line to the other, each line is it's own subject. Not to say he's all over the place, he simply presents a different idea every line, all of it being, to varying degrees, cryptic.

How are things on the west coast?
I hear you're moving real fine
You wear those shoes like a dove
Now strut those shoes we'll go roaming in the night
Well how are things on the west coast?
You keep it moving to your soul's delight
Now I've tried the brakes
I've tried but you know it's a lonely ride
How are things on the west coast?
Oh I'd move heaven behind those eyes

Today my heart swings
Yeah today my heart swings
But I don't want to take your heart
And I don't want a piece of history
No I don't want to read your thoughts anymore, my god
'cause today my heart swings
Yeah today my heart swings

How are things on the west coast?
Hear you're moving real fine tonight
You wear those shoes side to side
Ah, strut those shoes
We'll go roaming in the night
Well how are things on the west coast?
Yeah but you're an actress; I don't identify

Today my heart swings
Yeah today my heart swings, say it
But I don't want to play the part
And I don't want a taste of victory
No I don't want to read your thoughts anymore, my god
'cause today my heart swings
Yeah today my heart swings

Say it 'cause today my heart swings
Yeah today my heart swings

Let it come 'cause I've got a chance for a sweet sane life
I said I've got a dance and you'll do just fine
Well I've got a plan with forward in my eyes
Let it come. Well I've got a chance for a sweet sane life
I said I've got a dance; it moves into the night
Well I've got a plan with forward in my eyes

But today my heart swings


That's from the song No I in Threesome, one of my favorites.

LMAO I love how he called him the silly beetle. But Ringo's not bad, he just isn't as good as Lennon/McCartney/Harrison.

Silly, I think, might actually be fairly accurate. I've always thought that Ringo's stuff was way more lighthearted and, well, silly than the other's.

Oh don't get me wrong he IS the silly one. It just sounded so funny. It reminded me of a Beetles video I saw where ringo had the goofiest look on his face.

Paul Baribeau. His lyrics are very simple, as is his guitar playing, but it seems to work really well together. It's just all very real.
