Hey all, I have another "What's your favorite" post.
This time, it's song lyrics!
If you can post the lyrics in either quotes or spoilers, with a link to to the song if you can, that would be great!  :D

One of my favorite lyrics come from a song called Helplessness Blues, by Fleet Foxes


"I was raised up believing I was somehow unique.
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see.
And now after some thinking, I'd say I'd rather be,
A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me."

For me it's Mellow Gold; Beck...


"Pay now mind"... "Sleeping sound"... "I just got signed"...


"So get out your lead pipe, pipe dreams... and get out your ten foot flags..."


"Cause the insects are huge, and the poisons all been used...And the drugs can  kill your day job... Honey..."

Dylans All around the Watchtower. It is surreal and epic in equal measure!

Heh.


If you really really gotta know:




It's my all-time favourite when I need a pick-me-up during bouts of being down! Lyrics always make me smile!

Code:
			Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro
			Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw.
			Had two big horns and a wooly jaw.
			Wooly bully, wooly bully.
			Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

			Hatty told Matty, "Let's don't take no chance.
			Let's not be L-seven, come and learn to dance."
			Wooly bully, wooly bully
			Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

			Matty told Hatty, "That's the thing to do.
			Get you someone really to pull the wool with you."
			Wooly bully, wooly bully.
			Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Mine's from a song by The Protomen,( B) ) called: The Stand (man or machine)

"Tell me now, is there a man among you here? Is there no one who will stand up and try to fight?


And tell me man, is there not one in all your ranks? Is there no one who values courage over life?


They looked to me once, now they turn to you. Do you understand now? Do you see that the truth is, they don't want to change this, they don't want a hero. They just want a martyr, a statue to raise


I've given everything I can, but there are no heroes left in man.


And so it begins, no matter which one of us lives, the ground we're standing on will crack and blow away, and you will fight! And when you fight, you fight alone, and in the end you'll see there was no other way


I've been here before, I stood where you stand, they called me their hero, the hero of man, but why should we save them when they stand for nothing? If they deserve life let them stand for themselves!"








Odd for me as the POV character singing this is basically telling his brother that humanity doesn't deserve saving. :/

Actually this album in general has some of my fav song lyrics, and I encourage you guys to check it out.  :D

I love Eminem's Lose Yourself


Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted. In one moment
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?
Yo

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down,
The whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up, over, blaow!
Snap back to reality. Oh, there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that
Easy, no
He won't have it, he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that but he's broke
He's so sad that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again, yo
This whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him

[Hook:]
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go (go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime (yo)
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go (go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime (yo)
(You better)

The soul's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a new world order
A normal life is boring, but superstardom's close to postmortem
It only grows harder, homie grows hotter
He blows. It's all over. These hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's known as the globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows
He's grown farther from home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water
His hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose it's old partner, but the beat goes on
Da da dum da dum da da da da

[Hook]

No more games, I'mma change what you call rage
Tear this mother****ing roof off like two dogs caged
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed
I've been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhyming and stepped right into the next cypher
Best believe somebody's paying the Pied Piper
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can't get by with my 9 to 5
And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
'Cause man, these dayum food stamps don't buy diapers
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard, and it's getting even harder
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus
Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a primadonna
Baby, mama drama's screaming on her
Too much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony's gotten me
To the point, I'm like a snail
I've got to formulate a plot or I end up in jail or shot
Success is my only mother****ing option, failure's not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got to go
I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
So here I go it's my shot.
Feet, fail me not
This may be the only opportunity that I got

[Hook]

You can do anything you set your mind to, man

I'm not sure if many of you will get this since it's in french but my favorite lyricist's got to be Boris Vian. I love a lot of his songs, but let's go with this one:


Quand j'aurai du vent dans mon crâne
Quand j'aurai du vert sur mes osses
P'tête qu'on croira que je ricane
Mais ça s'ra une impression fosse
Car il me manquera
Mon élément plastique
Plastique tiqu' tiqu'
Qu'auront bouffé les rats
Ma paire de bidules
Mes mollets mes rotules
Mes cuisses et mon cule
Sur quoi je m'asseyois

Mes cheveux mes fistules
Mes jolis yeux cérules
Mes couvre mandibules
Dont je vous pourlèchois
Mon nez considérable
Mon coeur mon foie mon râble
Tous ces riens admirables

Qui m'ont fait apprécier
Des ducs et des duchesses
Des papes des papesses

Des abbés des ânesses
Et des gens du métier
Et puis je n'aurai plus
Ce phosphore un peu mou
Cerveau qui me servit
A me prévoir sans vie

Les osses tout verts
Le crâne venteux
Ah comme j'ai mal
De devenir vieu





If you insist on something in english, I'd have to go with something from Tim Minchin. Once again I'd have a hard time picking a particular song, so I'll go with this one :


Sleep, little baby, sleep now my love
The Milky Way's shining high up above
When you grow up, you will learn all that stuff
But for now, close your eyes
Close your eyes

Sleep, little baby, try not to squawk
Tomorrow and tomorrow you'll learn how to walk
To love and laugh, to make toast and talk
But for now, beddy-byes

Your blanket's hand-knitted with pure angora wool
Your nappy is dry and your tummy is full
Of enough antihistamine to chill out a bull
Yet still all this gringing

What more could you want for? I just cannot guess
You constantly complain to me; you should feel blessed
There are children in Africa, starving to death
And you don't hear them whinging

What more can I do to put a stop to
This mind-numbing noise you are making?
Where is the line between patting and hitting?
When is rocking "rocking" and when is it "shaking"?

I don't know what else I can do to try to hush you
My heart says "I love you", but my brain's thinking "frick you"
And hoping a child trafficker will abduct you
At least then I'll get a few hours in bed

I've shushed and I've cooed and I've even try to sing
"Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" in the exact voice of Ringo
Now all I have left is to hope that a dingo
Will sneak in and rip off your fat *****ing head

Hush little baby, don't say a word
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird
In the hope you get avian flu
The nice folk in A&E will take care of you

That's it, close your eyes, shhh, not a sound
I can barely see your tiny belly moving up and down
One thing they don't mention in the parenting books:
Your love for them grows, the closer to dead they look[SIZE=10pt][/SIZE]

I'm a big musical fan, so I'm gonna go with Finale B from RENT.

There is no future
There is no past
Thank God this
Moment's not the last



There's only us
There's only this
Forget, regret or
Life is yours to miss
No other road, no other way
No day but today



I can't control
(Will I lose my dignity)
My destiny
(Will someone care)
I trust my soul
(Will I wake tomorrow)
My only goal
(From this nightmare)
Is to be



Without You
(There's only now)
The Hand Gropes
(There's only here)
The Ear Hears
(Give in to love)
The Pulse Beats
(Or live in fear)
Life Goes On
(No other path)
But I'm Gone
(No other way)
'Cause I die without you
(No day but today)



I die without you
(No day but today)
I die without you
(No day but today)
I die without you
(No day but today)



I die without you
(No day but today)
I die without you
(No day but today)
No day but today

Peste noire, french Black metal!!


La foudre pleure son or, en de secs, fracas! Sur ma nuit détrônée par des soleils en transe. Claque un cataclysme flambant l'arborescence De mon corps inondé d'électriques ténias... Hurlez frénétiques Muses insufflez-moi Les flammées cataractes de la transcendance! [II. Cantique] "Là-bas, brûlante tombe Ta pluie de phalènes ensemençant De gemmes d'hécatombe Les contrées rougies baignées d'âcre encens. Pleure Nuit délétère De chaudes ondées d'incarnates cendres, Ensanglante l'éther D'essaims d'insectes aux fiévreux méandres! Sourde va t'en flétrir L'ivraie viciée, ferment d'inanité, Abreuver d'élixir Toxique le sein de l'humanité." FIN Blette flore de corps. Cloaque de chairs en putréfaction. Ventre lourd où s'endort, Un remous de plaies en décantation... Il faut noyer la peste Par la peste, qu'un acide expiatoire Issu des cieux infeste Nos citées dressées comme des crachoirs.


----------------------------------------------------------------


Lightning weeps its gold in sharp thunder’s roar!
Over my night usurped by entranced suns.
A cataclysm falls, inflaming the arborescence
Of my body flooded with electrical tapeworms…

Scream frantic muses, inspire me
With the flaming cataracts of transcendence!


II. Canticle


‘There, pour
Your burning rain of moths
Sowing gemstones of carnage
On the reddened lands bathed in acrid incense.


Deleterious Night, weep
Hot showers of incarnated cinders,
Bloody the ether
With feverish insect swarms!


Deafly, go wither
The tainted chaff, ferment of inanity,
With your elixir, irrigate
The toxic womb of humanity.’


END


Overripe flora of bodies.
Cesspool of putrefying flesh.
Pendulous womb where there sleeps
A swirling sediment of wounds…


One must drown the plague
With the plague, so that an atoning acid
Issuing forth from the heavens infests
Our cities that stand as cuspidors.
