Thread: Favorite Song Verse?

    There's people around who tell you that they know
    The places where they send you, and it's easy to go
    They'll zip you up and dress you down
    Stand you in a row
    But you know you don't have to
    You could just say no

    -Alex Chilton, Big Star. (The Ballad of El Goodo.)

    "And I know that I deserve your love
    There's nothing I'm not worthy of..."

    Simple words, but they really resonate with me.

    "This Is Me" from the Greatest Showman soundtrack
    Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
    As performed by Keala Settle

    "Where have all the flowers gone.
    long time passing...gone to graveyards everyone,
    oh when will they ever learn..."

    Pete Seeger

    A good one for Memorial Day
    "Self-righteousness never straddles the political fence."

    "Foghorn through the night, calling out to sea
    Protect my only light, 'cause she once belonged to me
    Let the waves rush in, let the seagulls cry
    For if I live again, these hopes will never die."

    -The Band, "Whispering Pines."
    -Lyrics by Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel.

    Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground.
    Silly monkeys. Give them thumbs, they make a club to beat their brother down.
    How they've survived so misguided is a mystery.
    Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
    To lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.

    Tool: "Right in Two"

    "Ammonia will disinfect sin."

    "Art is life, just add bull****."
    --Chris Miller

    Hotel Books - "Broke Love"

    "We'll make loneliness into love when we're bored
    And find the right emotional principle to cut like a sword
    Over the words of a past me whispering
    Love was the destination, but we would settle for some sympathy
    Turning myself into my own lord
    And then finding my own spinal cord
    It's finally safe to throw our bones back into the sea
    So we can forget what it means to have bodies
    When pursuing sanity just feels like some sort of couples' therapy
    For these dual personalities bleeding into my psyche
    Just questioning the answers I give to those I see
    And I was taught to never let someone take parts away from who I am
    But there are parts that sometimes make me want to hurt myself
    So what am I supposed to do with them?..."

    Aren't many lyrics within songs that I would consider eternally classic that no matter what give you a sense of profundity. Most music lyrics suit a mood and give you a sense for that moment or they change your attitude but you got to be in the mood for whatever it is or it doesn't seem that great.

    I'm not a huge John Lennon fan for various reasons, for one he was a communist and two he was a white robe pacifist and three he didn't take his fame serious enough to be concerned about personal security and that's why he was killed. And for all his faults and all the ideological reasons to dislike him he nonetheless wrote some profound lyrics. So, I would pick "Strawberry Fields Forever" for the timeless classic profundity of the lyrics.

    Tragically Hip - An Inch an Hour
    I want a book that'll make me drunk
    full of freaks and disenfranchised punks.
    No amount of hate, no load of junk,
    No bag of words, no costume trunk
    could make me feel the same way.

    Tragically Hip - The Bear
    I think it was Algonquin Park
    It was so cold and winter-dark
    A promised hibernation high
    took me across the great black plate of ice.

    Now I'm the Islander.
    I found a place to call my den
    and dreamt of the Ferry and
    the Enormous Man
    Huge as were his children
    following around after him

    I'm the Islander
    woke up in the furtive Spring
    more capable of anything

    And probably my absolute favourite song lyrically:
    Warren Zevon - Mr. Bad Example
    I started as an altar boy working at the church
    Learning all my holy moves, doing some research
    Which led me to a cash box labeled "Children's Fund" --
    I'd leave the change and tuck the bills inside my cummerbund

    The rest of the song details the life of this ne'er do well. It's great from beginning to end.
