Favorite Lyric section/part of song...?

Yours gets a 7 from me. I have many favourite snippets, but here's the one that immediately springs to mind:

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

"and you run and you run to catch up with the sun but its singking, racing around to come up behind you again. the sun is the same in a relative way but your older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death."

baby's just a little bit tired of the city
billboards and bull---- got her down
seems like you need a little hill country
a little back roads driving, a little bit of that old top down

Everybody's gotta get away sometime
forget about yourself for a while
we'll go down to el arroyo, have some tacos and beer man let ourselves go

-Pat Green, Carry On



You ain't got the balls, son

" I've forgotten what it feels like,
To feel normal, to be normal,
And I've forgotten what food tastes like,
The way it tastes right,
The taste buds tastes right,
Well I wake up, in so much spit and sweat,
It is not normal,
But what is normal?
I go to bed, when I wake up,
After cleaning all, all this spit and sweat,
Now I'm, Now I'm Sh Sh Shakin' Sh Shakin'
I'm Sh Sh Shakin' Sh Shakin' now,
Sh Sh Shakin', Sh Shakin' now
Sh Sh Shakin'..." ~~~Rooney

night after night
going round and round my brain
his dream is driving me insane
in the corner of some foreign field
the gunner sleeps tonight
what's done is done
we cannot just write off his final scene
take heed of his dream
take heed

-The Gunners Dream - Floyd

Big man, pig man, ha ha, charade you are
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost a joker
With your head down in the pig bin
Saying "keep on digging"
Pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find?
When you're down in the pig mine
You're nearly a laugh
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry.

-Pigs (three different ones) - Floyd

Hey you, standing in the road
always doing what you're told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

-Hey You - Floyd

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How ev'rything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

-Stairway to Heaven - Zep

Got hips like cinderella
Must be having a good shame
Talking sweet about nothing
Cookie I think you’re
Tame

I’m making good friends with you
When you’re shaking your good frame
Fall on your face in those bad shoes
Lying there like you’re tame

I can remember a place I used to go Chrysanthemums of white, they seemed so beautifulI can remember, I searched for the amaranth I'd shut my eyes... to see

Oh, how I smiled then, so near the cherished ones I knew they would appear... saw not a single one Oh, how I smiled then, waiting so patiently
I'd make a wish... and bleed

Nothing from nowhere, I'm no one at all Radiate, recognize one silent call
As we all form one dark flame... Incinerate

Light, like the flutter of wings, feel your hollow voice rushing into me As you're longing to sing So I... I will paint you in silver, I will wrap you in cold
I will lift up your voice as I sink

As I... walked away, heard them say "Poisoned hearts will never change"
Walked away again Turned away in disgrace Felt the chill upon my face cooling from within

So I called up the captin, please bring my mine wine, and he said "we haven't had that spirit here since 19699999...

Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, and she said "we are all just prisoners here of our own device, and in their master's chambers, they gathered for the feast, they stabbed it with their steely knifes, but they just can't kill the beast, last thing I remember, I was running for the door, I had to find the passage back to the place I was before..."relax said the nightman, we are programmed to recieve", "you can check out anytime you'd like but you can never leave."

Man, these are just all the immediate ones I can think of off of the top of my head...

I could seriously sit here and type for the next 3 days and not finish with all my favorite portions of songs...

whew!
 
A chilling silence. A world of violets. My breath materialized again. Immaculate. Inanimate. A comfort cutting time I see... a string of white lights. Forever walking through December. Forever longing for a sign of life, a bringer of light

Father can you hear me?
How have I let you down?
I curse the day that I was born
and all the sorrow in this world

Let me take you to the herding ground
where all good men are trampled down
Just to settle a bet that could not be won
between a prideful father and his son

Keep the noise low, she doesn't wanna blow it. She stripped from head to toe and then left him with his shoulder out. Go get your heartbeat. It beats me straight into the ground. You don't recover from a night like this. Our victim, still lying in bed, completely motionless. A hand moves in the dark to her zipper. And a boy best in tourniquet sheets barely whispers, "This is so messed up." Upon arrival the guests had all stared. Dripping wet and clearly depressed, he'd headed straight for the stairs. No longer cool, but a boy in a stitch, unprepared for a life filled with lies and failing relationships. (Up the stairs, the station where the act becomes the art of growing up.) He keeps his hands low, he doesn't wanna blow it. He's wet from head to toe and his eyes give her the up and the down. His stomach turns and he thinks of throwing up. Get the body on the bed like it's flowered and he starts going down. The people, the focus. The reasons that I had to believe you weren't too hard to settle. Die young and
save yourself. They take all the taste out. It used to be the reason that we're even, now it's choking me up. Die young and save yourself. She hits the lights. This doesn't seem quite fair. Despite everything he learned from his friends, he doesn't feel so prepared. She's breathing quiet and smooth, he's gasping for air. "This is the first and last time", he said. She fakes a smile and presses her hips into his. He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides. He's holding back from telling her exactly what it really feels like. He is the lamb, she is the slaughter. She's moving way too fast and all he wanted was to hold her. Nothing that he touches is really having an effect. He whispers that he loves her, but she's probably only looking for... (Up the stairs, the station where the act becomes the art of growing old.) So much more than he could ever give. A life full of lies and failing relationships. He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides. He waits for it to end and for the aching in his guts to subside.

I believe I have the king of all lyrics:

"I woke up this morning, with a bad hangover...
And my penis was missing...
This happens all the time...
It's detachable."
 
Whenever life gets you down
keeps you wearing a frown
and the gravy train has left you behind
and when your all out of hope
down at the end of your rope
and nobodys there to throw you a line
If you ever get so low that you don't know which way to go
come take a walk in my shoes
I never worry bout a thing
got the world on a string
cause I got the cure for all of my blues
I take a look at my enourmous penis
and my troubles start a meltin away
I take a look at my enourmous penis
and the happy times are here to stay
I gotta sing and dance every time I glance in my pants
got me feeling like a sun shiny day
I take a look at my enourmous peeeeeeenis
and everythings a goin my way....

Consumed with memories that preceded today
Given a chance to bereave life that's slipping away

Suffered through tragedy of my slow decay
Deceptive tendencies dragged my soul away

All that I know there was no God for me
Force that shatters all, absence of mortality

Revive all my fears
Revive wasted tears
Revive void within
Revive once again...


Forsaken by destiny, forsaken by my own mind
I must remove my skin to see belief in your eyes

All that I know there was no God for me
Force that shatters all, absence of humanity

Revive all my fears
Revive wasted tears
Revive void within
Revive once again...

Reach for the sky
Touch the sky
Revive a hope
For mankind

Edit: For the song above I'd say a 6.5. Not as good as the almighy Detachable Penis.

Tool - Gaping Lotus Experience
I had a friend once he took some acid
Now he thinks he's a fire engine
It's okay until he pisses on your lighter
Kinda smells kinda cool kinda funny anyway

satan, satan, satan...

I had a friend once he took some ecstasy
Tried to marry me and every one in the room
He was sort of loving kinda caring,
kinda tried to **** my lazy boy
It got a bit messy all over the curtains,
arm chair covers, throw pillows, and carpeting

satan, satan, satan...

I'm getting bored again...

I would say, err' 5. Frankly Tool was much keener on their humor on "Disgustipated" and "Hooker with a Penis".



My inner demons compel me to be here.
Your cheeks flush like rose petals,
you're consumed with rage and I am consumed with you.

Our eyes intertwine through the haze.
Intoxicated by your bloodshot stare.
In all my dreams, I've never thought I'd see
a face that could launch a thousand ships.

And the music was like wind in your hair
and the light caressed your silhouette.
Kiss of ocean mist is in your hair.
Why must God punish me this way?

Omg, I love this forum so much. So many AFI fans . . .

AFI, "Now the World" -

I looked inside to find the one I sent away.
(I wanted this excoriation.)
I nearly froze when I stepped inside to find the flowers turned to gray.
I closed my eyes and kissed them one last time.
(I thrive on this self mutilation.)

Summer, a morning so pale, alone when they found me.
As I remained sleeping I heard them say
"This summer created a boy of abject misery."
He was designed by you.

I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Adore you, and want you so
I'm just a no one,
With nothing to give you but Oh
I Love You

He, He buys you diamonds
Bright, sparkling diamonds
But believe me, dear when I say,
That he can give you the world,
But he'll never love you the way
I Love You

He can take you anyplace he wants
To fancy clubs and restaurants
But I can only watch you with
My nose pressed up against the window pane
I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Must watch you, go dancing by
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else
When darling it's I
Who Loves you

I Love You
I Love You
I Love You

The Warm Room
KAte Bush

In the warm room
She prepares to go to bed.
She'll let you watch her undress,
Go places where
Your fingers long to linger.

In the warm room
You'll fall into her like a pillow.
Her thighs are soft as marshmallows.
Say hello
To the soft musk of her hollows.

She'll tell you that she'll stay,
So you'd better barricade the way out.
She'll tell you she's true.
She'll tell you she loves you.
She's waiting in that warm room.
