    I am creating this thread to discuss song lyrics. If there are certain songs or songwriters that appeal to you, this is the place to discuss them. Or if you just want to share some lyrics with us you find inspiring, cool, funny etc. go ahead.

    I'll start, with Joni Mitchell(surprise, surprise).

    "They took all the trees, put 'em in a tree museum, and they charged the people a dollar and a half just to see'em"

    That line is from "Big Yellow Taxi". I just love it, always makes me chuckle.

    Wow, talk about thread failure.

    Lesson number 1: Never post anything even remotely meaningful on the Hype.

    "I’ve got the understanding of a 4-year-old
    I’ve got the piece of mind of a killer soul
    I’ve got the rationale of a new york cop
    I’ve got the patience of a chopping block yeah

    Trip like I do
    Trip like I do (oh my God this is the best)

    I’ve got the acumen of a season broke
    I’ve got the lack of say of a billion souls
    I’ve got the world on my back but I don’t seem to care
    I’ve got the comprehension of a world unaware yeah

    Trip like I do"

    bad assssssssss, its from Filter's "Trip Like I Do" song, 'tis the best :o

    LOL, great line. Joni Mitchell is a genius.

    I don't think the line means anything, maybe it's a response to something that was going around in the environment at the time. It's a perfect example of how great music doesn't have to make sense as long as it's great.

    Anyway, here's my submission, thought I'd get to it before anyone else does.

    "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now. It's just a spring clean for the May Queen."

    If you don't know what song that lyric is from, you're a sad person.

    I triumphed in the face of adversity
    And I became the man I never thought I'd be
    And now my biggest challenge, a thing called love
    I guess I'm not as tough as I thought I was

    Every day she fears her life will end
    Every time the call rings they are late
    They never come quite in time to see his fist
    Leave its mark on the side of her disgrace
    They'll never charge him anyway and you know it
    Say we can't get involved today
    So where's the choice and who protects her now
    Bruised and battered the blood has stained her gown
    Useless screams for help can't save her now
    Choices rendered the house is burning down
    No one will ever understand cause they don't have to feel his crushing hands
    And the ears that ignored her screams before are now wondering what she did it for
    But with a bottle of kerosene she found her freedom
    And then burned the bastard to the ground and ran
    The fire will now wash away the blood on her white wedding dress

    Warning, explicit content :o
    "Damn it feels good to be a gangsta" By the Geto Boys
    Verse 1

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    A real gangsta-ass ***** plays his cards right
    A real gangsta-ass ***** never runs his ****in mouth
    Cuz real gangsta-ass *****s don't start fights
    And *****s always gotta high cap
    Showin' all his boys how he shot em
    But real gangsta-ass *****s don't flex nuts
    Cuz real gangsta-ass *****s know they got em
    And everythings cool in the mind of a gangsta
    Cuz gangsta-ass *****s think deep
    Up three-sixty-five a year 24/7
    Cuz real gangsta ass *****s don't sleep

    And all I gotta say to you
    Wannabe, gonnabe, *****uckin', *****-eatin' prankstas
    Cuz when the fry dies down what the **** you gonna do
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    Verse 2

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    Feedin' the poor and hepin out wit they bills
    Although I was born in Jamaica
    Now I'm in the US makin' deals
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    I mean one that you don't really know
    Ridin' around town in a drop-top Benz
    Hittin' switches in my black six-fo'
    Now gangsta-ass *****s come in all shapes and colors
    Some got killed in the past
    But this gangtsa here is a smart one
    Started living for the lord and I'll last

    Now all I gotta say to you
    Wannabe, gonnabe, *****-eatin' *****uckin' prankstas
    When the **** jumps off what the **** you gonna do
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    Verse 3

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    A real gangta-ass ***** knows the play
    Real gangsta-ass *****s get the flyest of the *****es
    Ask that gangsta-ass ***** Little Jake
    Now *****es look at gangsta-ass *****s like a stop sign
    And play the role of Little Miss Sweet
    But catch the ***** all alone get the digit take her out
    and then dump-hittin' the ass with the meat
    Cuz gangsta-ass *****s be the gang playas
    And everythings quiet in the clique
    A gangsta-ass ***** pulls the trigger
    And his partners in the posse ain't tellin' off ****
    Real gangsta-ass *****s don't talk much
    All ya hear is the black from the gun blast
    And real gangsta-ass *****s don't run for ****
    Cuz real gangsta-ass *****s can't run fast
    Now when you in the free world talkin' **** do the ****
    Hit the pen and let the motha****as shank ya
    But *****s like myself kick back and peep game
    Cuz damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    Verse 4

    And now, a word from the President!
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    Gettin voted into the White House
    Everything lookin good to the people of the world
    But the Mafia family is my boss
    So every now and then I owe a favor gettin' down
    like lettin' a big drug shipment through
    And send 'em to the poor community
    So we can bust you know who
    So voters of the world keep supportin' me
    And I promise to take you very far
    Other leaders better not upset me
    Or I'll send a million troops to die at war
    To all you Republicans, that helped me win
    I sincerely like to thank you
    Cuz now I got the world swingin' from my nuts
    And damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    Driving around in a Voltswagon van
    thinking 'bout the people upside down in Japan.
    Staring at the stars in a distant galaxy
    wondering if there's someone out there staring back at me...

    It is sad that alot of kids these days have never even hear Stairway to Heaven in it's entirety. I heard a guy at school saying he thought Led Zepplin stole Stairway from the tencious d song "tribute". I blame the radio stations.

    Oh I love Led Zeppelin, I have about 20 different songs by them on my comp. It's just that I don't like the song Stairway To Heaven. It got WWWAAAAAAYYYYY too much overplay. It's overrated. Much like Freebird by Skynrd.

    The best rock n roll song of all time is the live version of "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed" by The Allman Brothers Band off of "Live At The Filmore East".

    Freebird and Stairway can't be overplayed. It isn't possible.

    My favorite Led Zeppelin song is "Over The Hills And Far Away".

    Hey Lady--you got the love I need
    Maybe, more than enough.
    Oh Darling Darling Darling, walk a while with me
    Oh you've got so much...

    Many times I've loved - Many times been bitten
    Many times I've gazed along the open road.

    Many times I've lied - Many times I've listened
    Many times I've wondered how much there is to know.

    Many dreams come true and some have silver linings
    I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold.

    Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing
    Many many men can't see the open road.

    Many is a word that only leaves you guessing
    Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know, ooh!
    You really ought to know...

    So true.

    And my favorite Zeppelin song is "Trampled Underfoot"

    Greasy, slicked-down body
    Groovy leather trim
    I like the way you hold the road
    Mama, it ain't no sin
    Talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout

    Ooh, trouble-free transmission helps your oil's flow
    Mama, let me pump your gas, mama, let me through your door
    Talkin' 'bout love, ah, talkin' 'bout love, ooh
    I'm talkin' 'bout

    Dig that heavy metal underneath your hood
    Baby, I can work all night, believe I got the perfect tools
    Talkin' 'bout lo-ove, talkin' 'bout lo-ove, talkin' 'bout

    A model built for comfort, really built with style
    Special list edition, mama, let me feast my eyes
    Talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout

    Factory air-conditioned, heat begins to rise
    Guaranteed to run for hours, mama, let me pull your tires
    Talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout

    Groovin' on the freeway, gauge is on the red
    Gun down on my gasoline, believe I'm gonna crack your head
    Talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout love, I'm talkin' 'bout
    I can't stop talkin' about, I can't stop talkin' about
    Oooh, yeah, yes, a-drive on

    Oooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yes, I'm comin' through
    Come to me for service every hundred miles
    Baby, let me check your points, fix your overdrive
    Talkin' 'bout love, I'm talkin' 'bout love, I'm talkin' 'bout

    Ooh, yes, fully automatic, comes in any size
    Makes me wonder what I did before we synchronized
    Talkin' 'bout lo-ove, talkin' 'bout love, I'm talkin' 'bout

    Ooh-ooh, feather-light suspension -- Konis couldn't hold
    I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors
    Talkin' 'bout love, talkin' 'bout low-oh-hove, talkin' 'bout
    I can't, I can't, oh, I can't stop talkin' about love
    I can't stop talkin' about love

    Ooh, let me come down, come down
    Comin' down, comin' down, come down, yes
    I can't stop talkin' about
    I can't stop talkin' about lo-ove, baby
    I can't stop talkin' about love, a-my baby
    I can't stop talkin' about love, my baby-ah
    My baby, my baby, yeah
    Push, push, push, push, yes, push, push
    Ooooh

    Kashmir
    Led Zeppelin
    (Physical Graffiti)

    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
    Ohh.

    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

    That's probably their best song IMO. I love it. It's not my favorite, but it's their most diverse and innovative. If I had to make a list of the best Zep songs ever, here's the list:

    1. Kashmir
    2. Stairway To Heaven
    3. Trampled Underfoot
    4. D'yer Mak'er
    5. The Rain Song
    6. No Quarter
    7. Black Dog
    8. Rock And Roll
    9. Whole Lotta Love
    10. I'm Gonna Crawl

    Thanks.

    And I hate to make this an all Zep thread, but am I the only one who thinks "No Quarter" is the creepiest rock song ever?

    Close the door, put out the light
    Y'know they won't be home tonight, oh-whoa-whoa-oh
    The snow falls hard, and don't y'know
    the winds of Thor are blowin' cold
    They're wearin' steel that's bright and true, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
    They carry news that must get through
    They choose the path where no one goes

    They hold no quarter, they, they hold no quarter
    Uhh-uh-uh, uh-uh, uhh-huh

    Walkin' side-by-side with death
    The Devil mocks their every step, ooh, ooh-ooh
    The snow drives back the foot that's slow
    The dogs of doom are howlin' more, oh, oh-oh
    They carry news that must get through
    to build a dream for me and you, aw-whoa-whoa
    They choose the path where no one goes, oh-oh, ooh-ooh

    They hold no quarter, they ask no quarter
    They hold no quarter, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, they ask no quarter
    Ahh, ahh, ah-ah-ah-ha, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
    Oh, the pain, the pain without quarter, oh, ho, oh, oh, oh
    They ask no quarter/Ah, yeah, without quarter, quarter, quarter
    They need no quarter/Won't they give me no
    Ah-ah-ah-ah-ha-ah-ah ha-ah, ha-ha/
    Dogs of doom are howlin' more, give me quarter
    I hear the dogs of doom a-howlin' more

    Pray For Death by Heathen

    Conquering the ages with their endless plan
    Threatening the future of the new world man
    Ultra technology in our wake
    Who will make the last mistake
    Billions are espent for our defence
    To protect our freedom at our expense
    For us to exist we must live as one
    Divide the wealth to feed everyone

    The future is blind in the political eye
    Bringing us down with their nuclear guides
    It'll be too late when they finally see the light
    Filling our heads with economical lies
    Refusing to hear the people cry
    Leaving no choise but to pray for death

    The government builds machines that kill
    And they use out money against our will
    When will they build a means of peace
    And maybe the future can live with ease
    And what about the churches and all their wealth
    There's an unseen fortune under their belts
    Are golden temples a symbol of God's way
    This horde of wealth is a sickening display

    Organized religion is deaf, dumb and blind
    They think they see through God's eyes
    It'll be too late when they finally see the light
    If the pope would sell his robes of silk
    He could provide the hungry milk
    Leaving no reason to pray for death

    They feed us the future through subliminal blinds
    But we know the stories and we know the rhymes
    So look in the mirror and see the lines
    For it's just a picture seen through their eyes, eyes, eyes


    Future Tense by Sanctuary

    What do you see on the news when you watch T.V.
    War in the name of God, or a playground killing spree
    Politicians promise you the world, and a preacher cries
    All he ever wanted was your money, and a ***** on the side
    What went wrong? Did society twist him?

    What do you see in the center of the public eye
    Rock stars on smack, and a serial killer fries
    Radicals blame suicide and murder on our form of art
    Brainwash the youth, you know they claim we all play a part
    What a shame that they can't think for themselves

    Past tense to future tense let history unfold
    So ends a decade now what will the nineties hold
    You know we're verging on the edge of an age
    Then another century will turn the page

    What do you think they will say when they look back on this
    Were the eighties just a time of spoiled innocence
    We leave our legacy like dust in the sands of time
    Let's hope the seeds we plant can carry the weight of our crimes

    Past tense to future tense let history unfold
    And when we're old and gray these stories will be told
    You know we're verging on the edge of an age
    Then another century will turn the page

    We sail an ocean, a sea of doubt
    Skeptics make no sense, can't work things out
    I'll choose optimism, scream its name
    Look to the future, a burning flame

    Past tense to future tense let history unfold
    So ends a decade now what will the nineties hold
    You know we're verging on the edge of an age
    Then another century will turn the page
    Turn the page.....

    Why I Don't Believe In God - Everclear

    I heard the truth about you
    And it really doesn't read at all
    Like the whipping stick you raised me with
    A scared woman in a private hell
    Hushed voice like electric bell
    Strange talk about Edgar Cayce and the long lame walk of the dark 70's
    Strange talk about Edgar Cayce and the long lame walk of the dark 70's

    I heard the truth about you
    Yeah you
    Mama they woke me up
    I was deep in an idiot sleep
    I was just eight years old
    Heard big words with a horrible sound
    Why'd they have to call my school
    Tell me my mother had a nervous breakdown

    I wish I believed like you do
    Yeah you
    In the myth of a merciful god
    In the myth of a heaven and hell
    I hear the voices you hear sometimes
    Sometimes it gets so much I feel like letting go
    Sometimes it gets so much I feel like letting go
    Sometimes it gets so goddamn hard I feel like letting it all go

    Letting it all go

    I ran away, went looking for you
    Back to Culver City and the old neighborhood
    Need to know if you were really gone
    Need to know if you were gone for good
    I ran through the projects at night
    Hide in the dark from my friends in the light
    Hide from my brother-in-law
    Hide from the things he'd say
    Said you weren't losing your mind
    He said you just needed a rest
    He said you'd be coming home soon
    He said the doctors there would know what's best
    Said that maybe I could go live with them for a while

    I know the truth about you
    I know the truth
    I know the truth
    I know the truth about you

    Mama they woke me up
    I was just eight years old
    Sometimes it gets so hard I feel like letting it go
    Sometimes it gets so hard I feel like letting it go

    Letting it all go
