"We hung on like barnacles on a boat. Even though the ship sinks you know you can't let go."

"you'll be drowned in boots like Mafia
but your feet will still float like Christ's
and i'll be damned
they were right
i'm drowning upside down
my feet afloat like Christ's"

I have TONS, but these are just the two I like and can think of at the moment. :D


Enjoy

This aint subliminal
Feel the critical mass approach horizon
Tha pulse of the condemned
Sound off Americas demise
Tha anti-myth rhythm rock shocker
Yes I spit fire
Hope lies in the smoldering rubble of empires
Yes back through tha shanties and tha cities remains
Same bodies buried hungry, uh-huh
With different last names, uh-huh
The vultures robbin everyone
Leave nothing but chains
Pick a point here at home
Yes the pictures tha same
Theres a field full of slaves
Some corn and some debt
Theres a ditch full of bodies
Tha check for the rent
Theres a tap, tha phone, tha silence of stone
The numb black screen
That be feelin like home

And the riot be the rhyme of the unheard



-Calm Like a Bomb, Rage Against the Machine


oh yeh.. i give your's a 7. Brownie points for liking Evanescence (even tho the quote isn't evanescence)
 
6.5-7
I like older Rage personally.

"cause it hurts when you discover one's worse and one's better
to suffer or cause others to
and you can live by your conscience
now guilt is a concept
you're no longer subscribing to"

"oh we got no health insurance
no cellular service
no disease they can cure
but we need more money to burn
so each person must learn the dollar amount they are worth"

"and your pills make me dizzy
forgetting my body
i watch as it walks away
and i just keep drinking the poison
and smoking the cartons
a pack and a half a day"

All the same song... just different sections.

With my feet upon the ground I move myeslf between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out. I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

I give a 6.75 for your Modest Mouse lyrics (is that a band or a nickname?).

"Wave upon wave of demented avengers marched cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream..."

"There will be no flowers, no not this time. There will be no angels gracing the lines. Just these stark words I find. "

"Don't waste your touch, you won't feel anything. Or have you come to save me?"

"If you can't stand upon the water I will see you on the ocean floor"

Various AFI.

Modest Mouse = GOD

But the first one was Ugly Casanova.
Yeah I quickly realized that right after I posted, notice my edit. (Although close enough, both are Isaac.)

Talk to me on aim if you want me to send you the new modest mouse single.

Anyone heard of Jack Johnson, just thought I'd grab some of his lyrics :


I was reading a book
Or maybe it was a magazine
Suggestions on where to place faith
Suggestions on what to believe
But I read somewhere
That you've got to beware
You can't believe anything you read
But the good Book is good
And it's all understood
So don't even question
If you know what I mean

But it's all relative
Even if you don't understand
Well it's all understood
Especially when you don't understand
And it's all just because
Even if we don't understand
Then lets all just believe

But there you go once again
You missed the point and then you point
Your fingers at me
And say that I said not to believe
I believe
I guess
I guess it's all relative

I like older Rage personally.
Just for you :D


Hey yo, and **** with this...uggh!
Word is born
Fight the war, **** the norm
Now I got no patience
So sick of complacence
With the D the E the F the I the A the N the C the E
Mind of a revolutionary
So clear the lane
The finger to the land of the chains
What? The land of the free?
Whoever told you that is your enemy?

Now something must be done
About vengeance, a badge and a gun
'Cause I'll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against 'em

Now action must be taken
We don't need the key
We'll break in

I give u a 5...

one thing we all adore...
something worth dying for...
nothing but pain,
stuck in this game
searching for fortune and fame

Though we exist and breathe
Some believe currency comes to g's
Stresses half the ghetto
With success comes greed
They got me hot
When they shot me
Plotted
My revenge
To increase my ends
Enemies gettin dropped
Win or lose
Red or blue
We must all stay true
Play the game
Never let the game play you
And for the fame
niggaz change fast
That's a shame
What's the game
Lost souls
Who controls our brain?
Who can I blame?
The world seems strange at times
Somewhat insane
I'm hoping we can change with time
I'm living blinded
Searching for a refined curse
I know death follows me
But I murder him first
And worse yet
With each breathe
Steps I take
Breathless
Be rocking beats
Fake in fame
Fading fast...

Fame - Tupac Shakur

If there were no rewards to reap, no loving embrace to see me through, this tedious path I've chosen here; I certainly would have walked away by now. And I still may.
 
"They said it was for the black man, they said it was for the Mexican, and not for the white man, but when you look on streets, it wasn't about Rodney King. It's about this ****ed up situation and these ****ed up police. It's about coming up, and staying on top, and screaming 1-8-7 on a mother ****ing cop"

"The girl on the wall always waited for me and she was always smiling. The teenage death boys, the teenage death girls..and everyone was dancing. Nothing could touch us then no one could change us then, and everyone was dancing"

Tech gets 400/10 for posting some of the lyrics from one of the best songs Pink Floyd ever released. Plus its an awesome lyric.

My selection is the sixth 'movement' of Symphony X's The Divine Wings Of Tragedy. Particularly the bit towards the end of it with all the minor arpeggiated chords/solos.
