I love the 'I Choose' lyrics. Very playful but also meaningful. I like that.


The Blurb.Didn't you make that joke before, or was that me?

Off the top of my head I'd say:

Bad Habit, Staring at the Sun, I Choose, Stuff Is Messed Up, and The Meaning of Life.

There's probably more/better one's but I'm too lazy to think currently.

These are the lyrics that mean the most to me :

Hypodermic ... Can't you see like you saw anymore, Can't you feel like you felt before, Can't you face anything anymore

Nothing From Something ... Cut me for the lion's share, It's mindless, But I don't care

Leave It Behind ... The sun has set, and I can't be friends, I don't know if I can forgive, the day is long, but you were so dead wrong

*By the way, these are my favourite three songs* :)

Oh yeah, it is the better: "Like Holden Caulfield, I tell myself there's got to be a better way."

Catcher in the Rye. My favourite book.


"Then I lay in bed and stare at the ceiling dream of brighter days."

I do the same. :)

Denial, Revisited: Good song to listen to if you're going through a break-up.

I also like the lyrics in Defy You, Takes Me Nowhere, Half-Truism, Gotta Get Away, Stuff Is Messed Up, Leave It Behind, and Dirty Magic.

Most of Self Titled, Ixnay and Americana hit the nail on the head for their chosen song topics. They're so damn true and easy to relate to.

Most of you are posting "songs" when it asked for lyrics. I believe the OP was looking for specific lines. So here are mine.

Meaning of Life -
"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."

Smash -
"Head over heels I've fit in before,
now, I don't want to do it no more.
I just want to be who I want to be,
guess that's hard for the others to see."

Smash -
"I'm not a trendy asshole.
I do what I want,
I do what I feel like.
I'm not a trendy asshole.
I don't give a fuck if it's good enough for you.
Cause I'm alive."

To continue on, and agree, i would like to expand that the whole song means a lot to me

Smash -
"Smash is the way you feel all alone
Like an outcast out on your own
Smash is the way you deal with your life
Like an outcast smashing his strife."

Takes me Nowhere:

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

Want you bad:

Don‘t get me wrong
I know you‘re only being good
But that‘s what‘s wrong
I guess I just misunderstood

One Fine Day:

I believe it‘s my god-given right
To destroy everything in my sight
Cause it never gets dull, it never gets old
The only thing it gets is more bold
Drinkin‘, fightin‘, going to the game
In our world it‘s a way to stay sane
If you‘re asking me
To have it my way, I‘d say that‘s
One fine day

The last one its just incredible don't you guys agree? :D

But I personally like the lyrics of almost every song on Ixnay on the Hombre and the albums that followed it.
