Thread: Favorite Song Verse?

  1. #51

    Pretty bad ass song.
    It all starts with a name and flows from there. A ridiculous moniker springs to mind and it launches like a multi-lubed slippery-sloop down chutes made of buttery-floops. Down, down, down. We watch, spellbound. Rapturous. Glockenspiel. We do our due diligence with penitence and penicillin. Do what’s due, then dew drops on your moon-pops.

    Big Dream Theater fan here.

    How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
    Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
    Creep into our ears: soft stillness and the night
    Become the touches of sweet harmony.

    - Shakespeare,
    Merchant...Act 5

    Just can't pick one verse ^^;

    Woodkid - Conquest of Spaces

    Stretched to the core of galaxies
    Distorted city grids
    By a black hole of vanity
    Blossoms the age of greed


    Beyond the laws of density
    Towers of glass and steel
    Temples and fragments of memories
    Drifting away from me


    I'm ready to start the conquest of spaces
    Expanding between you and me
    Come with the night the science of fighting
    The forces of gravity


    After the gates of prophecies
    A million light years away from me
    Straight for the eye of destiny
    Reaching the point of tears


    Behind the dreams of mastery
    Love dies silently
    Torn to the flesh as the fire bleeds
    Echoes of history


    I'm ready to start the conquest of spaces
    Expanding between you and me
    Come with the night the science of fighting
    The forces of gravity


    I'm ready to start the conquest of spaces
    Reaching the starlight and silver fields
    Come with the night the science of fighting
    The forces of gravity


    I'm ready to start the conquest of spaces
    Expanding between you and me
    Come with the night the science of fighting
    The forces of gravity


    I'm ready to start the conquest of spaces
    Reaching the starlight and silver fields
    Come with the night the science of fighting
    The forces of gravity
    Remember kids: Drink vodka, play Dotka!

    Terrapin Station - Grateful Dead

    One of my favorite tunes.

    Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm,
    That will not forsake you, till my tale is told and done.
    While the firelight's aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow,
    Till things we've never seen will seem familiar.

    Shadows of a sailor, forming winds both foul and fair all swarm.
    Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady many years ago.
    Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him,
    Who came through many fights, but lost at love.

    While the story teller speaks, a door within the fire creaks;
    Suddenly flies open, and a girl is standing there.
    Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair,
    She takes her fan and throws it, in the lion's den.

    Which of you to gain me, tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell?
    I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance.
    The sailor gave at least a try, the soldier being much too wise,
    Strategy was his strength, and not disaster.

    The sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
    That's how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.
    The story teller makes no choice. Soon you will not hear his voice.
    His job is to shed light, and not to master.

    Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold,
    In hopes he will return, but he cannot be bought or sold.

    Terrapin Station

    Inspiration, move me brightly. Light the song with sense and color;
    Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
    Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.
    Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin.

    Counting stars by candlelight, all are dim but one is bright;
    The spiral light of Venus, rising first and shining best,
    On, from the northwest corner, of a brand new crescent moon,
    While crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune,
    Terrapin Station.

    In the shadow of the moon, Terrapin Station.
    And I know we'll get there soon, Terrapin Station.
    I can't figure out, Terrapin, if it's the end or beginning, Terrapin,
    But the train's put it's brakes on, Terrapin,
    And the whistle is screaming, TERRAPIN.

    Terrapin Station - At the Siding

    While you were gone, these faces filled with darkness.
    The obvious was hidden. With nothing to believe in,
    The compass always points to Terrapin.

    Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain.
    You're back in Terrapin for good or ill again, for good or ill again

    Come undone, surrender is stronger
    I dont need to be the hero tonight
    We all want love we all want honour
    Nobody wants to pay the asking price

    It kills me not to know this but I've all but just forgotten
    What the color of her eyes were and her scars or how she got them
    As the telling signs of age rain down a single tear is dropping
    Through the valleys of an aging face that this world has forgotten

    "To Be Someone (Didn't We Have A Nice Time)"

    To be someone must be a wonderful thing
    A famous footballer a rock singer
    Or a big film star, yes I think I would like that

    To be rich and have lots of fans
    Have lots of girls to prove that I'm a man
    And be No. 1 - and liked by everyone

    Getting drugged up with my trendy friends
    They really dig me and I dig them
    And the bread I spend - is like my fame - it's Quickly diminished

    And there's no more swimming in a guitar shaped Pool
    No more reporters at my beck and call
    No more cocaine it's only ground chalk
    No more taxis now we'll have to walk

    But didn't we have a nice time -
    Didn't we have a nice time
    Oh wasn't it such a fine time

    I realize I should have stuck to my guns
    Instead shit out to be one of the bastard sons
    And lose myself - I know it was wrong - but it's Cost me a lot

    And there's no more drinking after the club shuts down,
    I'm out on me arse with the rest of the clowns
    It's really frightening without a bodyguard
    So I stay confined to my lonely room
    The only one who can heal you is you.

    Peter Gabriel - My Body is a Cage

    -

    My body is a cage
    That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
    But my mind holds the key

    I'm standing on a stage
    Of fear and self doubt
    It's a hollow play
    But they'll clap anyway

    You're standing next to me
    My mind holds the key

    I'm living in an age
    That calls darkness light
    Though my language is dead
    Still the shapes fill my head

    I'm living in an age
    Whose name I don't know
    Though the fear keeps me moving
    Still my heart beats so slow

    My body is a cage
    We take what we're given
    Just because you've forgotten
    That don't mean you're forgiven

    I'm living in an age
    That screams my name at night
    But when I get to the doorway
    There's no one in sight

    I'm living in an age
    They laugh when I'm dancing with the one I love
    But my mind holds the key

    Set my spirit free
    Set my spirit free
    Set my body free
    Set my body free

    Set my spirit free
    Set my body free
    "When I am gone, it won't be long before I disturb you in the dark."

    from A Jester Arrayed in Burning Gold (A Hill to Die Upon)
    "Tread ye not, now, where I have failed.
    That spirit has flown, that ship has sailed.
    My feet have failed to dance the steps,
    And for bare bones I have loved and wept;
    Arrayed am I in burning, Trojan gold
    For the sake of He whose name I hold."

    from Where Roses Grow (Rez Band)
    "Stand with me at the mercy seat
    With mounds... mounds of ashes spread about my feet,
    You know who I am, all I think I know,
    See it in the marrow, buried deep in the bone.
    How is there no anger in the words I hear?
    Only love and mercy erasing every fear. . ."

    from In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (Neutral Milk Hotel)
    "And one day we will die
    And our ashes will fly
    From the aeroplane over the sea,
    But for now we are young
    Let us lay in the sun
    And count every beautiful thing we can see."
    "So long is the way to the unknown, long is the way we have come. . ." ~ Turisas, Five Hundred and One

    "[An artist is] an idiot babbling through town. . .crying, 'Dreams, dreams for sale! Two for a kopek, two for a song; if you won't buy them, just take them for free!'" ~ Michael O' Brien,
    Sophia House

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.

    Good thread to resurrect.

    Judas Priest - Painkiller
    Cheeseball and legendary. Great for getting you pumped while lifting.
    Through boiling clouds if thunder
    Blasting bolts of steel
    Evils going under deadly wheels
    He is the painkiller
    This is the painkiller
    Faster then a laser bullet
    Louder than an atom bomb
    Chromium plated boiling metal
    Brighter than a thousand suns


    Watain - Reaping Death
    Really the whole damn song but it's the image conjured up by verse 4 that has had the biggest artistic influence on me:
    There the blood of Abel impregnates the soil,
    In which hungry darkness dwells and serpents coil,
    So that plants may rise to bear the strangest fruit,
    For all of ye that hunger

    Deicide - Trifixion
    Not necessarily my favorite of favorites but it had a big influence on my current story:
    Blessed by the sign, symbolically I die
    Intwist me in the lines of trifixion
    Torment, semantic in design
    Inflict this mortal shrine,
    with pure hatred
    Kill me, before my time is lived
    It's all I have to give, to be thankful
    Satan, entangled in my sores
    Forever I am bound by your conviction
    Dead by Dawn!
