Guns n Roses have some pretty amazing lyrics out there.  I think that Breakdown is their best song lyricaly, "Everybody warms thenselves to a different fire, well sometimes we get burned, you think sometime we'd learn, that the one you love, is the one that can take you higher", I also think the last 2 minute of Coma are really tight.  What are everyone else's thoughts on GnR lyrics?

Axl is lyrical genius in my opinon,  the BEST. I especially love these lyrics on Locomotive :

"Sweetness is a virtue

And you lost your virtue long ago

You know I'd like to hurt you

But my conscience always tells me no

You could sell your body on the street

To anyone whom you might meet

Who'd love to try and get inside

And bust your innocence open wide

'Cause my baby's got a locomotive

My baby's gone off the track

My baby's got a locomotive

Got ta peel the bitch off my back"

these too from the same song :

"Kindness is a treasure-

And it's one towards me you've seldom shown

So I'll say it for good measure

To all the ones like you I've known

Ya know I'd like to shave your head

And all my friends could paint it red

'Cause love to me's a two way street

An all I really want is peace"

D'you wear a black armband

when they shot the man who said

"peace could last forever"

an in my first memories they shot kennedy

i went numb when i learned to see

so i never felt for vietnam

we've got the wall of d.c. to remind us all

that we can't trust freedom when it's not in your hand

when everybode's fighting for their promised land

2nd verse in civil war. so damn good. the whole song is so fucking good.

Last night I was thinking of this subject....and I realized what lyric I've been listening to the most lately...:

"I'll never find anyone to replace you, guess I'll have to make it through, this time, whoa this time,...without you"

everybody can relate to that at some point in their lives....some more than others....  :'(

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've been broken down...

Got your head out of the clouds

you're back down on the ground

And you don't talk so loud

And you don't walk so proud

Any more... and what for

(argh this solo is tooooo good)


so fucking amazing...

One of Axl's most emotionally heavy verses has to be:

"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?"

Estranged kicks ass

Have you guys seen the queen tribute? axl and elton john sing bohemian rhapsody? damn it's good.

when and where was that concert? and who's concert was it??

will everybody hate me if i write a piece of the lyrics?

"Mama, didn't mean to make you cry

If I'm not back again this time tomorrow

Carry on, carry on as

If nothing really matters...."
