I mean, why not?

I'll kick it off with a classic: "Black" by Pearl Jam:

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of plain
Her legs spread out before me as her body holds still
All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

And all I taught her was everything
I know she gave me yarn that she wore
And now my bitter hands shake beneath the clouds of what was everything
All the pictures sent all been washed in black
Tattooed everything

I take a walk outside, I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?

And twisted thoughts that spin round my head, I'm spinnin'
Oh I'm spinnin', how quick a sun can drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything
All the pictures sent all been washed in black
...Tattooed everything
All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all that I'll beeee

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky
But why, why, why can't it be...how can I be more?

I generally really like Travis Morrison's (Dismemberment Plan) lyrics, even though he can cross the line into being obnoxious/pretentious sometimes, when he doesn't he's awesome.

There are times when you will not like the sound of my voice
there are days when a warm look from a strange face will make me forget my name
there'll be nights when you wonder where the party's at now
and you wonder why you never split this beat scene when a higher life awaits
there'll be days when you don't know how you picked the wrong life
in a second when it's over in our own minds -- and it's gone without a sound
there are fights that'll hear things that we know we don't mean
and we say 'em 'cos we don't know what we both want and we can't get to the other side
There are years that'll fly like wind across a flood plain
unaware of its own weight, free of friction, and immune to its own speed
there are weeks that'll crawl like slugs across a hot road
only moving 'cos it just don't know how to stop on a search for God knows what
and there are songs that'll make your skull ring like a dropped cup
Resonating with the reasons why you worked through -- and the reasons why you stayed
For the long nights when you found a new resolve that I never knew was there
For the cold eye and the warm embrace now
For the righteous vibe that I need like the air I breathe
There are times when you'll think you've got my funny number figured out
there'll be days when I don't feel like I ever knew you all that well and there are lines, drawn around, behind, above and over everyone
in an effort to figure out the place and time, the right, the wrong, the yours, the mine, and I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything
but if don't keep moving on that last hill,
we'll never know what's on the other side

The correct answer is...

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

I'll forever defend that Time by Pink Floyd has the greatest lyrics I've ever heard.

Girls - all I really want is girls
And in the morning it's girls
Cause in the evening it's girls

I like the way that they walk
And it's chill to hear them talk
And I can always make them smile
From White Castle to the Nile

Back in the day
There was this girl around the way
She liked by home-piece M.C.A.
He said he would not give her play
I asked him, "Please?" - he said, "You may."
Her pants were tight and that's ok
If she would dance - I would D.J.
We took a walk down to the bay

I hope she'll say, "Hey me and you should hit the hay!"
I asked her out - she said, "No way!"
I should have probably guessed her gay
So I broke North with no delay
I heard she moved real far away
That was two years ago this May
I seen her just the other day
Jockin' Mike D. to my dismay

Girls - to do the dishes
Girls - to clean up my room
Girls - to do the laundry
Girls - and in the bathroom
Girls - that's all I really want is girls
Two at a time - I want girls
With new wave hairdos - I want girls
I ought to whip out my - girls, girls, girls, girls, girls!

My city's still breathing (but barely it's true)
through buildings gone missing like teeth.
The sidewalks are watching me think about you,
sparkled with broken glass.

I'm back with scars to show.
Back with the streets I know
Will never take me anywhere but here.

The stain in the carpet, this drink in my hand,
the strangers whose faces I know.
We meet here for our dress-rehearsal to say " I wanted it this way"

Wait for the year to drown.
Spring forward, fall back down.
I'm trying not to wonder where you are.

All this time lingers, undefined.
Someone choose who's left and who's leaving.

Memory will rust and erode into lists of all that you gave me:
a blanket, some matches, this pain in my chest,
the best parts of Lonely, duct-tape and soldered wires,
new words for old desires,
and every birthday card I threw away.

I wait in 4/4 time.
Count yellow highway lines that you're relying on to lead you home.

I love The Weakerthans.

Well they come and pull me from my house
And they drag my body through the streets
And the sun’s so hot I think I’ll catch fire and burn up
in the summer air so moist and sweet

And the people all come out to cheer
Rocks in the pathway break my skin
And there’s honeysuckle on the faint breeze today
With every breath I’m drawing in

I want to cry out but I don’t scream and I don’t shout
And I feel so proud to be alive
And I feel so proud when the reckoning arrives

Crowds grow denser by the second
As we near the center of the town
And they dig a trench right in the main square right there
And they pick me up and throw me down

And I start laughing like a child
And I mark their faces one by one
Transfigurations gonna come for me at last
And I will burn hotter than the sun

I waited so long and now I taste jasmine on my tongue
And I feel so proud to be alive
And I feel so proud when the reckoning arrives

Haha no....

Tonights the night that we got the truck
Were goin downtown gonna beat up drunks
Your turn to drive Ill bring the beer
Its the late, late shift no one to fear
And ride, ride how we ride
We ride, lowride

Its roundup time where the good whores meet
Gonna drag one screaming off the street

And ride, ride how we ride

Got a black uniform and a silver badge
Playin cops for real/playin cops for pay

Lets ride, lowride

Pull down your dress heres a kick in the ass
Lets beat you blue til you shit in your pants
Dont move, child got a big black stick
Theres six of us babe, so suck on my dick

And ride, ride how we ride
Lets ride, lowride

The left newspapers might whine a bit
But the guys at the station they dont give a shit
Dispatch calls are you doin something wicked?
No siree, jack, were just givin tickets

As we ride, ride, how we ride
Lets ride, lowride

Sometimes I feel like I can't even sing
I'm very scared for this world, I'm very scared for me
Eviscerate your memory,
Here's a scene, you're in the backseat laying down,
The windows wrap around to the sound of the travel and the engine
All you hear is time stand still in travel,
You feel such peace and absolute stillness,
Still that doesn't end but slowly drifts into sleep,
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen and they're there for you,
For you alone, you are the everything.

I think about this world a lot and I cry,
And I've seen the films and the eyes, but I'm in this kitchen
Everything is beautiful, and she is so beautiful,
She is so young and old, I look at her
And I see the beauty of the light of music,
The voice is talking somewhere in the house, late spring,
And you're drifting off to sleep with your teeth in your mouth
You are here with me, you are here with me,
You have been here and you are everything.

I love these lyrics just because of the way I interpret them. I think this song is about a lot more than is immediately evident.

Green has two of R.E.M.'s best lyrics. The one you posted and "STAND!!!!!!" are amazing.

Fixed.

My current favorite:


Run, run, run to your grave
Run, run, run to your grave

Run, oh, run, run to your grave
Run, oh, run, run to your grave

Cause they're coming for your brain but
They will leave with your head
And they've got money and science
And they will leave you for dead

Sleep, sleep, sleep in your tomb
Sleep, oh, sleep, sleep in your tomb

Don't bury your body with your diamonds
Cause you know they'll dig up your grave
And don't hold on to your riches
Cause when you die, you're a slave

And emotion is a simple test to the synapse
Don't let it fool you into thinking that you've got brains
And the more you feel, the more you will take with you
So cut the flesh and let your blood flow to the drain

You've got to
Tear, burn, soil the flesh
God will do the rest
Scream, cry, pray, confess
God will do the rest

Scream, cry, pray, confess
God will do the rest
Scream, cry, pray, confess
God will do the rest

From "Run To Your Grave" by the Mae Shi.

I saw you, in a way
Beyond figured out
These lines of life have been drawn and can't be removed
Our eyes is all it took to know

Open up your eyes
Deep blue, glassy lake
and swim 'till water and sky
Now are one, out of two
Oh, my bloodshot eyes

Open up your mouth
Touch your lips to mine
That we may make a kiss that can pierce through death and survive
Your words have branded my mind

Still I hold your hand
Wrapped as if a ring
We of flesh and blood are only carrying
It's so hard to
Well, you know...

The seed waits for the reaper to sow

Every breath an art
The dignity to learn it can strain & break your heart
Take all your pieces home
And ask when you're alone, "what is love?"
The blood is love...

Readying to bury your father and your mother,
What did you think when you lost another?
I used to wonder why did you bother,
Distanced from one, blind to the other?

Listen here my sister and my brother
What would you care if you lost the other?
I always wonder why did we bother,
Distanced from one, deaf to the other.

Oh, o, but sweetness follows

It's these little things, they can pull you under.
Live your life filled with joy and wonder.
I always knew this altogether thunder
Was lost in our little lives.

Oh, oh, but sweetness follows.
Oh, oh, but sweetness follows.

REM - "Sweetness Follows." Always jumps to my mind. There are a lot of beautiful lyrics for an awful song they don't fit, but "Sweetness Follows" is one of the best songs I've ever heard in terms of beautiful lyrics flowing beautifully with a beautiful song.

Two to the one from the one to the three
I like good pussy and I like good trees
Smoke so much weed you wouldn't believe
And I get more ass than a toilet seat
Three to the one from the one to the three
I met a bad bitch last night in the D
Let me tell you how I made her leave with me
Conversation and Hennessy

Oh, another addition: "Lemon" by U2:

Lemon
See through in the sunlight
She wore lemon
But never in the daylight
She's gonna make you cry
She's gonna make you whisper and moan
And when you're dry
She draws her water from the stone

And I feel
Like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly slipping under
And I feel
Like I'm holding onto nothing

She wore lemon
To colour in the cold grey night
She had heaven
And she held on so tight

A man makes a picture
A moving picture
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
A man captures colour
A man likes to stare
He turns his money into light to look for her

And I feel
Like I'm drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore
And I feel
Like I'm swimming out to her

Midnight is where the day begins

Lemon
See through in the sunlight

A man builds a city
With banks and cathedrals
A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside
(You're gonna meet her there)
A man makes a car
(She's your destination)
And builds roads to run them on
(You gotta get to her)
A man dreams of leaving
But he always stays behind

And these are the days
When our work has come asunder
And these are the days
When we look for something other

Midnight is where the day begins

A man makes a picture
A moving picture
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
(You're gonna meet her there)
A man captures colour
(She's your destination)
A man likes to stare
He turns his money into light
To look for her

She is the dreamer
She's imagination
Through the light projected
he can see himself up close.

I once had a girlfriend,
But then one day she dumped me and everywhere
I'd go people would ask me where she was.

I don't want to talk about her.
Someone always asks about her.
So I tell them all my girlfriend's dead.

I say it's leukemia or sometimes bulimia
Or a great big truck ran her over
And chopped off her head.

I don't want to talk about her.
Someone always asks about her.
So I tell them all she's dead.

I guess there's a part of me that likes the sympathy
Or the looks on their faces when I tell them how
She passed away.

I don't want to talk about her.
But someone always asks about her.
So I tell them all she's dead.

My girlfriend's dead you see,
It's a total lie - but it's easier on me
Than having to admit that she like's someone else.

My girlfriend's dead you know,
Please change the subject or I am going to go
Jump off a building and join her in heaven

I don't want to talk about her.
Someone always asks about her.
So I tell them all she's dead.

I once had a girlfriend,
But then one day she dumped me and everywhere
I'd go people would ask me where she was.

I don't want to talk about her.
But someone always asks about her.
So I tell them all my girlfriend's dead.

I don't want to talk about her.
But someone always asks about her.
So I tell them all my girlfriend's dead.

"A Joyless Euphoria" by Vendetta Red

A scream engaged to peel your eyelids back.
Her skin like silk, my lips like knives.
A marriage of art and atrocity.
A sultry silhouette ensemble.

Rib into lung. Head on collision.
Tooth into tongue. Insipid succubi.
Match to the fuse.
And I'm un-anesthetically revived,
so ashamed that I survived.
A faceless fuck betrothed to his bedside,
A bed pan for a bride.

"And now that this curse is in my blood,
a time of redemption has begun.
A song for the ages, silent and sweet."
The voice of forever singing through me.

Our varicose unholy abortionist
inquisitors' black crusade.
To cleanse your womb unfit for demon seed.
An anti-nest for the anti-christ.

"Can you hear me?
There's something I've been wanting to tell you.
When you were laying face down
in a pool of blood and broken glass,
you never looked so beautiful.
So who's the big man now, motherfucker?
The one missing his arms and legs?
Well I wanna lick those bloody stumps,
and cum candy in your mouth until you cry."

Please, mom
You ground me all the time
I know that I was right
All along

And I'm hoping
Remember I'm a kid
I know not what I did
Just having fun

You couldn't wait for something new
And yesterday I thought of you
It left me to think as if I couldn't walk away
It's too late, I fell through

Nothing to lose
A boy who went out when he finished all his chores
Nothing to do
They can't trust me because I blew it once before

Shit, dad
Please don't kick my ass
I know I've seen you trashed
At least one time

Can I blame it
On one of my dumb friends
It's been awhile
Since I have used that line

You couldn't wait for something new
And yesterday I thought of you
It left me to think as if I couldn't walk away
It's too late, I fell through

Nothing to lose
A boy who went out when he finished all his chores
Nothing to do
They can't trust me because I blew it once before

Nothing to lose
A boy who went out when he finished all his chores
Nothing to do
They can't trust me because

If time is my vessel, then learning to love
Might be my way back to sea
The flying, the metal, the turning above
These are just ways to be seen
We all get paid
But some get faith before they die
Then the stars we will navigate
Through the holes in your eyes

Interpol in general has pretty amazing lyrics in my opinion.

They're tearing up streets again.
They're building a new hotel.
The Mayor's out killing kids to keep taxes down,
and me and my anger sit folding a paper bird,
letting the curtains turn to beating wings.
Wish I had a socket-set to dismantle this morning.
And just one pair of clean socks and a photo of you.
When you get off work tonight,
meet me at the construction site,
and we'll write some notes to tape to the heavy machines,
like "We hope they treat you well. Hope you don't work too hard.
We hope you get to be happy sometimes."
Bring your swiss-army knife, and a bottle of something,
and I'll bring some spraypaint and a new deck of cards.
Hey I found the safest place to keep all our tenderness.
Keep all our bad ideas, keep all our hope.
It's here in the smallest bones, the feet and the inner-ear.
It's such an enormous thing to walk and to listen.
I'd like to fall asleep to the beat of you breathing
in a room near a truckstop on a highway somewhere.
You are a radio, you are an open door.
I am a faulty string of blue christmas lights.
You swim through frequencies, you let that stranger in
as I'm blinking off and on and off again.
We've got a lot of time.
Or maybe we don't, but I'd like to think so, so let me pretend.
These are my favourite chords.
I know you like them too.
When I get a new guitar, you can have this one
and sing me a lullaby, sing me the alphabet.
Sing me a story I haven't heard yet.

03-07-2008, 01:10 PM
and because i'm super gay:


If you hate the taste of wine
Why do you drink it till you're blind?
And if you swear that there's no truth and who cares
How come you say it like you're right?
Why are you scared to dream of God
When it's salvation that you want?
You see stars that clear have been dead for years
But the idea just lives on...

In our wheels that roll around
As we move over the ground
And all day it seems we've been in between
A past and future town

We are nowhere and it's now
We are nowhere and it's now

In like a ten minute dream in the passenger's seat
While the world was flying by
I haven't been gone very long
But it feels like a life time

I've been sleeping so strange at night
Side effects they don't advertise
I've been sleeping so strange
With a head full of pesticide

I've got no plans in too much time
I feel too restless to unwind
I'm always lost in thought as I walk a block
To my favorite neon sign

Where the waitress looks concerned
But she never says a word
Just turns the jukebox on and we hum along
And I smile back at her

And my friend comes after work
When the features start to blur
She says these bars are filled with things that kill
By now you probably should have learned

Did you forget that yellow bird?
How could you forget your yellow bird?
She took a small silver wreath and pinned it onto me
She said this one will bring you love
And I don't know if it's true
But I keep it for good luck

I enjoy the lyrics to this little song by the White Stripes. I'm not sure why, but they just stand out to me.

A Martyr For My Love For You

She was sixteen and six feet tall
In a crowd of teenagers comin' out of the zoo
She stumbled started to slip and fall
Teeter-tottered on the top of patent leather shoes
I happened to catch her and said,
"maybe these ruby shoes are a little cumbersome for you"

Maybe for you, now

But not as shaky as I must have seemed
Talkin' junk through her giggle, little teenage dream
And on the phone I could not compete
My dumb-love fake competence was getting weak
For a sec' I thought I sounded sweet
But sure 'nough in a gruff, faint voice
I heard myself speak

[Chorus:]
I could stay a while
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
And we could share a kiss
But I feel like I can't go through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing for me to do
Is to leave you alone

Leave you alone, now

I'm beginning to like you
So you probably won't get what I'm going to do
I'm walkin' away from you
It probably don't make much sense to you
But I'm trying to save you
From all of the things that I'll probably say or do

I'll probably do

[Chorus:]
I could stay a while
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
And we might share a kiss
But I feel like a can't go through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing for me to do
Is to leave you alone

Leave you alone, now

You'll probably call me a fool
And say I'm doin' exactly what a coward would do
And I'm beginning to like you
It's a shame what a lame way to live
But what can I do?
I hope you appreciate what I do

I'm a martyr for my love for you
A martyr for my love for you, now
A martyr for my love for you
A martyr for my love for you

Dave Matthews Band - "Grey Street"

Oh look at how she listens
She says nothing of what she thinks
She just goes stumbling through her memories
Staring out onto Grey St.
And she thinks...hey
How did I come to this
I dreamed myself thousand times around the world
But I can't get out of this place
There's an emptiness inside her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
But all the colors mix together
To grey, and it breaks her heart

Oh how she wishes it was different
She prays to God most every night
And though she swears He doesn't listen
There's still a hope in her He might
She says I pray
But they falls on deaf ears
Am I supposed to take it on myself
To get out of this place
There's a loneliness inside her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
And though it's red blood bleeding from her now,
It feels like cold blue ice in her heart

When all the colors mix together
It's grey, and it breaks her heart

There's a stranger speaks outside her door
Says take what you can from your dreams
Make them real as anything
It will take the work out of the courage
She says please
There's a crazy man creeping that's outside my door
I live on the corner of Grey Street
And the end of the world

Oh there's an emptiness insider her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
It's more like cold blue ice in her heart
She feels like kicking out all the windows
And setting fire to this life
She could change everything about her
Using colors bold and bright
But all the colors mix together
To grey

Day after day your home life‘s a wreck
The powers that be just
Breathe down your neck
You get no respect
You get no relief
You gotta speak up
And yell out your peace
So back off your rules
Back off your jive
Cause I‘m sick of not living
To stay alive
Leave me alone
I‘m not asking a lot
I just don‘t want to be controlled
That‘s all I want
All I want
How many times is it gonna take
Till someone around you hears what you say
You‘ve tried being cool
You feel like a lie
You‘ve played by their rules
Now it‘s their turn to try
So back off your rules
Back off your jive
Cause I‘m sick of not living
To stay alive
Leave me alone
I‘m not asking a lot
I just don‘t want to be controlled
That‘s all I want
All I want
I said it before
I‘ll say it again
If you could just listen
Then it might make sense

You should know them...

Fastest song on Earth? Even in The Offspring's own discography, they have faster songs. I can think of All Along and No Brakes off the top of my head.

Well, some of the brutal death/speed/black metal songs are 2 times faster than All I Want...

Short People-Randy Newman

Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
To live

They got little hands
And little eyes
And they walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

Well, I don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Round here

Short People are just the same
As you and I
(A Fool Such As I)
All men are brothers
Until the day they die
(It's A Wonderful World)

Short People got nobody
Short People got nobody
Short People got nobody
To love

They got little baby legs
And they stand so low
You got to pick 'em up
Just to say hello
They got little cars
That go beep, beep, beep
They got little voices
Goin' peep, peep, peep
They got grubby little fingers
And dirty little minds
They're gonna get you every time
Well, I don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
'Round here

Pearl Jam - Given to Fly

He could’ve tuned in, tuned in
But he tuned out
A bad time, nothing could save him
Alone in a corridor, waiting, locked out
He got up outta there, ran for hundreds of miles
He made it to the ocean, had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up, set him down on his knee

A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, "Hey, look at him now"
Arms wide open with the sea as his friend
Oh, power, oh

He's.. flying
Whole…
High.. wide, oh

He floated back down 'cause he wanted to share
This key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere
But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men, well, fuckers
He still stands...

And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen, a strange spot in the sky,
A human being that was given to fly

High.. flying
Oh, oh
High.. flying
Oh, oh
He’s…flying
Oh, oh

There are a lot of great song with great lyrics... but if I had to choose I'd choose this one::cool:

Awake.
Shake dreams from your hair
my pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
the day's divinity
First thing you see.

A vast radiant beach and cooled jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by it's quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.

Choose they croon the Ancient Ones
the time has come again
choose now, they croon
beneath the moon
beside an ancient lake

Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream
Come with us
everything is broken up and dances.

Indians scattered,
On dawn's highway bleeding
Ghosts crowd the young child’s,
Fragile eggshell mind

We have assembled inside,
This ancient and insane theater
To propagate our lust for life,
And flee the swarming wisdom of the streets.

The barns have stormed
The windows kept,
And only one of all the rest
To dance and save us
From the divine mockery of words,
Music inflames temperament.

Ooh great creator of being
Grant us one more hour,
To perform our art
And perfect our lives.

We need great golden copulations,

When the true kings murderers
Are allowed to roam free,
A thousand magicians arise in the land
Where are the feast we are promised?

One more thing

Thank you oh lord
For the white blind light
Thank you oh lord
For the white blind light

A city rises from the sea
I had a splitting headache
From which the future's made
The Doors-The ghost song

For the record, I think this is the most single most perfect song ever written, from a band that's not one of my favorites.

Switchfoot - "Company Car"

Mike was right when he said I'd put up
A fight to be someone, a fight to be me
But see now, I'm down
Under the pavement
Of Capitals hills and lowercase people
As time rolls by my dreams have
become
That which is attainable
Now what I'm looking for!

Chrous:
I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car


(Hey)I'm the king of things I've always
despised
I'm the gingerbread man
Who got eaten alive
I'm half baked. I'm fake,
but see I've got hotels on
Park Place and Boardwalk
And two hundred bucks
I pass go but, oh! Life's taken it's toll
Have I won monopoly to forfeit my soul?

But see, I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car

All the kings horses
At the foot of the wall
They're taking pictures of
The man who's lost all of his
Masks of pretension
He's got two faces left
His is the one that he hides
On the left behind that smile

Hiding tears and fear
That burn like an engine
It drives him away
From the ones that he loves
Mike was right:
"Hey Mike. We're one and the same;
We're the faceless combatants in the
loneliest game"
Ah but say, I'll wave as I'm driving by
With that smirk in my eye, yelling
"Hey, I'm something man, check me
out!"

But see, I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car, yeah
check me out I've got the company car, yeah
check me out I've got the company car, yeeeeeah.

Deepest, most meaningful lyrics ever:

Uno, dos, tres, quatro...

When you fucked grandpa did he tell you that he loved you?
Did he hold you till the sun did rise and did he look into your eyes
And ask you to fellate him, and stick a finger or two in his ass

He seems like a total asshole, grandpa is a total fucking asshole
Who would ever want a dirty, greasy finger in his ass?
He rubs his dick in broken glass

When you fucked grandpa did he kiss you soft and tender?
Did he tie your hands behind your head and was it on your mother's bed And
He seems like a total asshole,
Grandpa is a total fucking asshole
Who would ever want a dirty, greasy finger in his ass?
He rubs his dick in broken glass

This is fucking stupid man
I can't believe you'd have sex with your own grandfather
I mean, you guys are related!
What's he gonna do?
Take out his false teeth and just leave them on the side of your bed?
Man, you like to fuck him in the butt and have people come in and watch and masturbate and cum all over the place
This is stupid, I hate you all
I'm not even gonna have sex with my mom tonight, this is stupid!

I hate you
