It's impossible to put all the great songs in order. But most interesting songs for me are Gone Away, Forever And A Day, Hypodermic, Lightning Rod, The Meaning Of Life, You're Gonna Go Far Kid, Something To Believe In and Trust In You.

WTF? I find it really hard to chose 20!!! I think there are, at least, 50 songs whose lyrics are good at least!
That's a gift, coz not too many bands are good in writing lyrics!!!

The best album, "lyrically" spoken, i think it's Ixnay. I love the betrayal, the freedom, the life, the way dexter speaks about those issues.
That's why i chose a lot of songs from that album.
