i'm sorry if this has been done before, i'm sure it has, but what are your favourite lyrics from an offspring song? mine are ' dog eat dog, everyday, on our fellow man we prey! dog eat dog, to get by, hope you like my genocide!', because i think it really sum's up today. what about you?

I believe it's my God-given right, to destroy everything in my sight.

Maybe life is like a ride on a freeway
Dodging bullets while you‘re trying to find your way
Everyone‘s around, but no one does a damn thing
It brings me down, but I won‘t let them

I gotta go find my own way
I gotta go make my own mistakes


This is life
What a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true
Or a playground if we choose
And I choose


erm...i mean...can't decide...there are so many more LOL

can't post all of them anyway....so i give up :cool:

" Back off your rules,
back off your jive
'cause I'm sick of not living to stay alive"

"But I won‘t be burned by the reflection
Of the fire in your eyes
As you‘re staring at the sun"

" I am waiting
On a mountaintop
For the moment that the sky will strike"

and all the lyrics in Blackball

they're my favourites but all the Offspring's lyrics are good

"I'm always feeling steered away
By someone trying to tell me
What to say and do
I don't want it
I gotta go find my own way
I gotta go make my own mistakes
Sorry man for feeling
Feeling the way I do
On yeah, Oh yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in
Their meaning of life
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
But not for me I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
Open wide and swallow their meaning of life
I can't make it work your way
Thanks but no thanks"

thinking about it, I think an easier question to answer are which lyrics DON'T you like... cause 90% of their lyrics are so good... it's hard to pick favorites.

i like heaps

you don't wanna change the world like you say, you're in it for yourself and no one else

when she's sayin oh, that she wants only me then i wonder why she sleeps with my friends. when she's sayin oh, that i'm like a disease, then i wonder how much more i can spare. well i guess, i should stick up for myself, but i really think it's better this way. the more you suffer, the more it shows you really care...right?

this is life. what a fucked up thing we do. what a nightmare come true. or a playground if we choose. and i choose

friend for life - such shallow words for broken minds - show me a frined for life

back off your rules and back off your jives coz im sick of not living to stay alive. leave me alone, i'm not asking alot just don't wanna be controlled - that's all i want

deep inside your soul theres a whole you don't wanna see, every single day what you say makes no sense to me, even though i try, i can't get my head around you

have you ever been at some place recognizing everybodies face, untill you realise that there was no one that you knew?

have you ever burried your face in your hands coz no one around you understands or has the slightest idea what makes you be?

maybe life is like a ride on a freeway, dodging bullets while you're trying to find your way.

im not a trendy asshole, i'll do what i want and i'll do what i feel like. i'm not a trendy asshole, i don't give a fuck if that's good enough for you.

where cultures defined by the ones least refined and you'll be left behind if you don't fit in, it's all distorted in americana my way

The lyrics for "Self Esteem." They get right to the point.

Friend for life, such shallow words for broken minds. show me a friend for life. 'cause i'll be waiting for that day to arrive when i fell aive, cause i'll be waiting for that day (the best one)

I am waiting
On a mountaintop
For the moment that the sky will strike

deep inside your soul theres a whole you don't wanna see, every single day what you say makes no sense to me, even though i try, i can't get my head around you

I gotta agree with everyone who said Smash and Self Esteem. Those lyrics are simple but get the message across. Also, Forever and a Day has great lyrics, and Demons is pretty good as well.

"When the rain comes, I sit home and pray.
Make it all numb, I wish it all away.
All I really is just somewhere to hide away"

Me and my old lady
Suck each other dry
And when in that position
I‘m the luckiest man alive

By the way
I know your path has been tried and so
It may seem like the way to go
Me, I‘d rather be found
Trying something new

Mommy doesn‘t have her head any more
Keep it underneath my bed on the floor
Well that‘s all right though
That‘s OK
She never really used her head anyway

I‘ve been told that to get what you want
You just gotta give what you can
But I know for what I want it don‘t come easy as that
They say, “Look out, boy
Tomorrow comes and things will look better by then.”
But I‘ll look out the window
Then look in the mirror at the same old me again

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay
So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to think the world is a better place

Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head
And it's more than I can take
I think I'm on a roll
But I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me

Have you ever been at someplace
Recognizing everybody's face
Until you realized that there was no one there you knew

We're living in chaos

Red over white
It's one last fatal scene
Brought on by
Someone unseen
Moving on their own
Bring on the night
And bring us all to our knees
All are gone and none agreed
The one who acts alone

Nobody wins
Nobody hears us fall
Nobody wins when it's done
Conspiracy of one

Bring on the night
And bring us all to our knees
All are gone and none agreed
The one who acts alone
Red over white
It's one last fatal scene
Brought on by
Someone unseen
Moving on their own


and all of I Choose
