my favourite is...

"Now thank god for the media, for saving the day
Putting it all into perspective in a responsible way
With more celebrity news
Typical bullshit views
I think weíre losing this fight
Sponsored by Bud Light"

Offspring's lyrics were allways a good example of how songs should be written. RAFRAG's lyrics are very strong aswell. Take any line / few lines and it will look damn good.

"She sees a million stars like holes in the sky, all God's tears for her they cry, and I am in her rain"

Pretty damn brilliant.

And me, the sharpest thorn on your vine
Twisting and turning, we're all intertwined

I love it.

"I am the..."
"...willing to find out whats really inside"
"trust in you "
"cause i am ready ...(waiting...)"
"so i am willing to change
i am going to try"

"she wakes up
rage and grace
pulling me closer, pushing me away"
"she sees a million stars
like holes in the sky
all gods tears for her they cry
and i am in her rain"

"dance fucker dance"

"shit is fucked up"

Waisting away, we're hitting rock bottom and
Call me anyway, 'cause I got two friends.

Sounds really simplistic, but I love the lamentation, uncertainty, and loneliness that those two lines capture all at once.

When the day begins
All the guilt sinks in
And I look on the wreckage of the night
Though I try to break free
The cycle breaks me
Am I ever gonna see the light?
All the friends Iíve lost
And the pain Iíve caused
Have never been enough just to make me stop

Though I try to break free
The cycle breaks me
Am I ever gonna see the light?
All the friends Iíve lost
And the pain Iíve caused
Have never been enough just to make me stop

Pretty much what I was gonna quote, without the last 3 lines.

"One is for envy, and one just for spite, the cuts in my heart, they show in your eyes"
"Dance, fucker, dance"
Really fast part from Stuff Is Messed Up (I don't wanna type it out)

"One is for envy, and one just for spite"

Yeah that's a really, really good line. Great way to kick off an album. I have the shirt that says it, and I love it!

I am the rock that pushes away
I gave up tomorrow to spite today

Too proud to beg
Too stubborn to try
Iíd look in your face
And spit in your eye

Who tied the other
End of my rope?
I want to move on
I want to have hope

So Iím willing to change
Iím going to try

from trust in you

------

But today, if I change
And stop digging my own grave
I will try, to set things right

from takes me nowhere

------

She sees a million stars like holes in the sky
All Godís tears for her they cry
And I am in her rain

from fix you

------

Now thank god for the media, for saving the day
Putting it all into perspective in a responsible way
With more celebrity news
Typical bullshit views

"Dance, fucker, dance"

agreed... that is a simple and classic line!

I also like

"The banner your waving is burning and red,
its blocking the sunlight that shines overhead"

Don't waste your whole life tryin'
To get back what was taken away

I've had this stuck in my head all day long.

And on another note my girlfriend loves this song and You're Gonna Go Far, Kid. Previously she had no idea who The Offspring were.

My favorite at the moment is:
"If we don't make it alive, well it's a hell of a good day to die"
I think you all know where that comes from :cool:

Pretty much all of Trust In You.

"And today, if i change, and stop digging my own grave"

"And that guy on TV is like, a total asshole" cos its sung with attitude, bitch.

"Trust Decieved!"

"Will fear no evil for thou art with meeeeeeee"

"The banner your waving is burning and red,
its blocking the sunlight that shines overhead"

This is something very very wisely said. In fact it's so clever that I think most of us don't even understand it's greatness.

The most depressing one on the album:
"A beaming sunrise buries the night
The setting sun destroys the light"

So sad :(

I also like:
Gini's out of the bottle, and WE CAN'T PUT IT BACK!


Funny...I had in mind creating a thread like this :P

I'm norwegian, so I can't every english word, but I understand that sentence if I translate it directly. But does it have a "inner" meaning?

Second Me Best Verse is the first words of album


One is for envy and one just for spite

From "Half-Truism"

And the rain comes
And the world is on my head

Rise and fall is
Good and evil,
Appearance and reality,
Judgment and reflection.
It is to judge and to be judged,
To dream and to accept.
It is Triumph and despair,
Wish and realization,
And we are both.

Seems like it was added to the lyrics booklet as an afterthought cause it's not sung in Rise and Fall, but I really fucking like this.
