Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

Pillage the village, trash the scene

But better not take it out on me

'Cause a ghost town is found

Where your city used to be

So out of the darkness and into the light

Sparks fly everywhere in sight

From my double barrel, 12 gauge,

Can't lock me in your cage

"When I find out all the reasons

maybe I'll find another way

find another day

with all the changing seasons of my life

maybe I'll get it right

next time

and now that you been broken down

got your head out of the clouds

back down on the ground

and you dont talk so loud

you dont walk so proud

anymore and what for"

"well you run and you run to catch up to the sun but it's sinking, racing around to come up behind you again, the sun is the same in a relitive way but your older, shorter of breath, but one day closer to death"

Time (Pink Floyd)

I got a job working construction for the johnstown company

But lately there aint been much work on account of the economy

Now all them things that seemed so important

Well mister they vanished right into the air

Now I just act like I dont remember, mary acts like she dont care

But I remember us riding in my brothers car

Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir

At night on them banks Id lie awake

And pull her close just to feel each breath shed take

Now those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a curse

Is a dream a lie if it dont come true

Or is it something worse that sends me

Down to the river though I know the river is dry

Down to the river, my baby and i

Oh down to the river we ride

Bruce Springsteen - The River

Here are some of my favourites rock3

HIM - Beyond Redemption

Oh I see you crawl you can barely walk

And arms wide open you keep on begging for more

I've been there before knocking on the same door

It's when hate turns to love and love to hate

Faith to doubt and doubt to faith

Avenged Sevenfold - Remenissions

A good friend once told me we are our memory

Without them we equal nothing

And all I can see is the place I wanna be

Timeless my life was so free

Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground

their echoes are reaching my ears

Nights coming fast, suns going down - confused

I don't know the answers but neither do you

Guns N' Roses - Rocket Queen

I see you standing

Standing on your own

It's such a lonely place for you

For you to be

If you need a shoulder

Or if you need a friend

I'll bee here standing

Until the bitter end

No one needs the sorrow

No one needs the pain

I hate to see you

Walking out there

Out in the rain

So don't chastise me

Or think I, I mean you harm

Of those that take you

Leave you strung out

Much too far


I could name more but I'd be here all week :rolleyes:

Hey there, people, Im Bobby Brown

They say I'm the cutest boy in town

My car is fast, my teeth are shiney

I tell all the girls they can kiss my heiney

Here I am at a famous school

Im dressin sharp n' I'm

Actin' cool

I got a cheerleader here, wants to help with my paper

Let her do all the work n' maybe later I'll rape her

Oh God I am the American Dream

I do not think I'm too extreme

An' I'm a handsome sonofabitch

I'm gonna get a good job n' be real rich

(get a good

Get a good

Get a good

Get a good job)

Women's Liberation

Came creepin' across the nation

I tell you people I was not ready

When I fucked this dyke by the name of Freddie

She made a little speech then,

Aw, she tried to make me say when

She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick

I guess its still hooked on, but now it shoots too quick

Oh God I am the American Dream

But now I smell like vaseline

An I'm a miserable sonofabitch

Am I a boy or a lady...I dont know which

(I wonder wonder

Wonder wonder)

So I went out n' bought me a leisure suit

I jingle my change, but I'm still kinda cute

Got a job doin' radio promo

An' none of the jocks can even tell I'm a homo

Eventually me n' a friend

Sorta drifted along into S&M

I can take about an hour on the Tower of Power

Aslong as I gets a little golden shower

Oh God I am the American Dream

With a spindle up my butt till it makes me scream

An' I'll do anything to get ahead

I lay awake nights sayin "Thank you, Fred!"

Oh God, oh God, I'm so fantastic!

Thanks to Freddie, I'm a sexual spastic

And my name is Bobby Brown

Watch me now, I'm goin' down

And my name is Bobby Brown

Watch me now, I'm goin' down

There's quite a few I really like, but Silent Lucidity by Queensryche is probably one of my top favs....

Hush now don't you cry

Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

You're lying safe in bed

It was all a bad dream

Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain

Of someone close to you leaving the game of life

So here it is, another chance

Wide awake you face the day

Your dream is over...or has it just begun?

There's a place I like to hide

A doorway that I run to in the night

Relax child, you were there

But only didn't realize it and you were scared

It's a place where you will learn

To face your fears, retrace the tears

And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world

Suddenly, you hear and see

This magic new dimension


I-will be watching over you

I-am gonna help you see it through

I-will protect you in the night

I-am smiling next to you...in silent lucidity

If you open your mind for me

You won't rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within

Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn

You're safe from pain in the dream domain

A soul set free to fly

A round trip journey in your head

Master of illusion, can you realize

Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

I'm a big fan of fun/silly/innuendo/double entendre type songs so my top three are in this order:

The Jack (card game version)- AC/DC

Big Balls- AC/DC

Ice Cream Man- Van Halen (I know it's not really theirs, but I've never heard the original)

I know there must be songs more clever than this, and I've heard some of them, but these songs overall are awesome, so they're my favorites.

Favorite serious lyric:

Time- Pink Floyd

this is another set of lyrics that i like.

Iron Maiden - Powerslave[

The night was black was no use holding back

Cos I just had to see was someone watching me

In the mist dark figures move and twist

was this all for real or just some kind of hell

666 the number of the beast

Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised

as they start to cry hands held to the sky

In the night the fires burning bright

the ritual has begun Satan's work is done

666 the number of the beast

Sacrifice is going on tonight

This can't go on I must inform the law

Can this still be real or just some crazy dream

but I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes

they seem to mesmerise me...can't avoid their eyes

666 the number of the beast

666 the one for you and me

Told you once about your friends and neighbours

They were always seeking but they'll never find it

It's alright, yes it's alright

Where to go and where to see

It's always been this way and it can never be

It's alright, yes it's alright

Give it all and ask no return

And very soon you'll see and you'll begin to learn

That's it's alright, yes it's alright

Don't you know that it's so good for you

You can be making love and see it all go through

But it's alright, yes it's alright

Ted Nugent-Cat Scratch Fever

Well I don't know where they come from

But they sure do come

I hope they comin' for me

And I don't know how they do it

But they sure do it good

I hope they doin' it for free

They give me cat scratch fever

Cat scratch fever

The first time that I got it

I was just ten years old

I got it from some kitty next foor

I went and see the Dr. and

He gave me the cure

I think I got it some more

They give me cat scratch fever

Cat scratch fever

It's nothin dangerous

I feel no pain

I've got to ch-ch-change

You know you got it when you're going insane

It makes a grown man cryin' cryin'

Won't you make my bed

I make the pussy purr with

The stroke of my hand

They know they gettin' it from me

They know just where to go

When they need their lovin man

They know I do it for free

They give me cat scratch fever

Cat scratch fever

Led Zeppelin-Kashmir

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream

I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been

To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen

They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear

But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear

Oh, oh.

Oh, I been flying... mama, there ain't no denyin'

I've been flying, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground

And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land

Trying to find, trying to find where I've been.

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream

Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream

My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again

Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin' through Kashmir.

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years

With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear


When I'm on, when I'm on my way, yeah

When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm down...

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down

Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there

Let me take you there. Let me take you there

there's a lot for all time

however right now..since they just came up with a new album and have these 2 songs that i find amazing and think are up there with my best of all time..esp fake plastic trees....

fake plastic trees- Radiohead..

Her green plastic watering can

For her fake Chinese rubber plant

In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man

In a town full of rubber plans

To get rid of itself

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

It wears him out, it wears him out

It wears him out, it wears...

She looks like the real thing

She tastes like the real thing

My fake plastic love

But I can't 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

and videotape- radiohead

When i'm at the pearly gates

This'll be on my videotape

My videotape

Mephistopheles is just beneath

And he's reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days

And i have it all here

In red, blue, green

In red, blue, green

You are my center when I spin away

Out of control on videotape

On videotape

On videotape

On videotape

On videotape

This is my way of saying goodbye

Because i can't do it face to face

I'm talking to you

Before it's too late

on videotape

No matter what happens now

I won't be afraid

Because i know today has been

The most perfect day i've ever seen

Well as well as the ones I already posted mine would have to be Coma, Estranged, November Rain, The Blues and of course Don't Cry. Hell I love all GN'R lyrics.

I was also just listening to Audioslave and realised that Cornell really is a fantastic lyricist, great voice too :)

Audioslave - Like A Stone

On a cobweb afternoon

In a room full of emptiness

By a freeway I confess

I was lost in the pages

Of a book full of death

Reading how we'll die alone

And if we're good we'll lay to rest

Anywhere we want to go


In your house I long to be

Room by room patiently

I'll wait for you there

Like a stone I'll wait for you there


On my deathbed I will pray

To the Gods and the angels

Like a pagan to anyone

Who will take me to heaven

To a place I recall

I was there so long ago

The sky was bruised

The wine was bled

And there you led me on


In your house I long to be

Room by room patiently

I'll wait for you there

Like a stone I'll wait for you there


And on I read

Until the day was gone

And I sat in regret

Of all the things I've done

For all that I've blessed

And all that I've wronged

In dreams until my death

I will wander on


In your house I long to be

Room by room patiently

I'll wait for you there

Like a stone I'll wait for you there

Alone, alone

I Am The Highway also has amazing lyrics by Cornell. Audioslave rock!!
