I personally love some of Lupe Fiasco's,

In particular this one:
“And pray to god that the flood subside,
'Cause you gon' need a sub ‘till he does reply,
But not of Jared’s…” -The Coolest
It's so awesome, you'll need a sub(submarine) until he replies, but not of Jared's (subway dude, not one of his subway subs).

from the same song:
“And if the rain stops,
And everything's dry
She would cry
Just so I could drink the tears from her eyes
She'd teach me how to fly
Even cushion my fall
If my engines ever stall
and I plummet from the sky
But she will keep me high.”

and also this one:
“Before she reach the shore of the land of the free,
Where they feed you,
Treat you like equals,
Deceive you,
Stamp you and call you illegal,
there's an…
(chorus) Inturder… Alert” -Intruder Alert

This one too:
“The scientist say it only affects the mind
The little boy said it only affects the girls
The preacher man said it's going to kill off the soul
A bum said it's going to kill the whole wide world”
-Streets On Fire

But what are your favourite song lyrics or any really good ones you've heard?

“We are in the stickiest situation since Sticky the stick insect got stuck on a sticky bun.” - Blackadder

Choruses?

Well, I like this one…

I left my throne a million miles away
I drink from your tit
I sing your blues every day
Now give me the strength
To split the world in two yeah
I ate all the rest and now I've gotta eat you

-Space Lord. Monster Magnet. Very silly really, but it has a funny appeal.

I like zillions upon quadrillions of song lyrics though (probably only 400 or so in reality).

I particularly enjoy the Frankenstein Drag Queens lyrics to ‘Chop off my hand’ - (Which is based on Evil Dead II)

we'll swallow your soul
we'll swallow your soul
we'll swallow your soul
we'll swallow your soul
OH NO YOU WONT!

I'm gonna chop chop chop chop chop off my hand
It's posessed by the evil dead
It will be over before too long
Cause we'll all be dead by dawn!

They say I'll be dead by dawn!
Well, I'm gonna have to say Bring it on!
And there'll be blood shed for all
I gotta replace my hand with a chainsaw!

- Awesome ^^

I like lots of mainstream and alternate music, but as far as consistent talent, I've always been a big Billy Joel fan. I think he is one of the greatest lyricists in the world. Combined with perfect mood setting music, he tells doesn't just tell a story, he transports you there. Some of my favorites include:

The Downeaster ‘Alexa’
Scenes From an Italian Restaurant
Summer, Highland Falls
The Ballad of Billy The Kid
An Innocent Man
The Stranger
New York State of Mind
Baby Grand
I've Loved These Days

Actually all on that one probably…

Great album.

I live about 40 minutes from Allentown, PA. Allentown was known for its steel production though, not coal. The coal miners were actually from my neck of the woods (Northeast PA).

Still a brilliant song. ;)

Kekal - Isolated I

“You are knocking at my private door
Yes, you - the shadow of my very soul
A covert companion in my part of darkness
No common world-light shall connote to illuminate me
Together, we travel into my deepest realm
Together, we invert the law of material bliss
I don't need fake sympathy
Let my world spins, I will not be there to care
I will remain isolated
Until the coming of my time
I have my ‘truest identity’
And the real side of me will be kept off-surface
I am here but they will never see me
It is no matter what if they would call me insane
Together, we laugh at the every day’s issues
Together, we seek for pleasures of a loner
I don't need fake sympathy
Let my world spins, I will not be there to care
I will remain isolated
Until the coming of my time”

Very underrated band.

In Flames- “Artifacts of the Black Rain”

“Stood there cursing at the soul-dead mass
with their fabled illusions, the vain dreams that passed
splinters of a life rushing by in the whirl
alone, silent warrior in a fantasy world.

He cried for night, but night could not come
so, swept in the shroud of misanthropia he went away
and fed the empty galleries
with the artifacts of the black rain
sunken into the shadows with a dry, sardonic smile.”


These lyrics in particular were actually a big inspiration for creating the main character in my comic.

This is probably my favorite ever.

Soda Stereo- En Remolinos:

Dejame vivir este sueño
Que delirio
Una flor
Una flor
Otra flor
Un maestro
Una causa
Un efecto
Quien sabra el valor de tus deseos
Quien sabra
Gira el sol
Gira el mundo
Gira Dios
Energía misteriosa
Resplandor
Al soltar mi cuerpo en remolinos
Resplandor
Otra flor
Paraíso
Es una cura
Perfección
Florecer mirándote a los ojos
Perfección
Florecer mirándote a los ojos
Perfección
Florecer los dos
Florecer
Florecer los dos
Florecer…
