    Thumbs up Which of Dexter's lyrics are the best?

    Guys and girls!

    I would like to know which you think is the best lyrics in any Offspring song. Or the best line. Also what you think is the funniest.
    Me and my friends had a discussion one night and it made me wonder what everyone else thinks. So please let me know.

    My favourite would have to be this one from Self Esteem because i can relate to it

    When she‘s saying that she wants only me
    Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
    When she‘s saying that I‘m like a disease
    Then I wonder how much more I can spend
    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?

    And the funniest would have to be, well the whole of Beheaded. But there just my opionions!

    And when you know you can't relate
    To one more shiny face
    Your heart breaks
    No one cares
    And when you know you can't go on
    Cause everything is wrong
    Your heart breaks
    But no one's there

    Amazed shattered, relating lyrics. Dexter fucken rocks when it comes to breaking my heart. lol

    I would say all of Gone Away. That is some of the best song writing I have ever heard. One Fine Day has hilarious lyrics, I love them!

    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

    Awesome!
    End of the Line also has great lyrics
    Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Chances thrown
    Nothing‘s free
    Longing for what used to be
    Still it‘s hard
    Hard to see
    Fragile lives, shattered dreams

    That's for sure. I had a loss of a family member the other week and i always listen to that song when i'm down but as weird as it sounds, it helps me get through.
    Does anybody else get that with their songs?

    Yeah, besides the fact they mae great music, Dexter knows what he's talking about and his lyrics make me feel better knowing that other people have had the same things happen and get through them.

    That's true. He is amazing but we still can't forget about Noodles, Greg and Atom. Or to be truthful Ron either. He's been a big part of the band since i've liked them back in '93 but i'm positive Atom will be just as good!
