    What are they?

    I like a lot of Pulp's lyrics... but one that comes to mind...

    Pulp - I Spy

    And it's just like in the old days -
    I used to compose my own critical notices in my head.
    "The crowd gasp at Cocker's masterful control of the bicycle,
    skilfully avoiding the dog turd next to the corner shop."
    Imagining a blue plaque
    above the place I first ever touched a girl's chest,
    but hold on,
    you've got to wait for the best.
    You see you should take me seriously.
    Very seriously indeed.
    Cause I've been sleeping with your wife for the past sixteen weeks,
    smoking your cigarettes,
    drinking your brandy,
    messing up the bed that you chose together.
    And in all that time I just wanted you to come home unexpectedly one afternoon,
    and catch us at it in the front room.
    You see I spy for a living,
    and I specialise in revenge,
    on taking the things I know will cause you pain.
    I can't help it,
    I was dragged up.
    My favourite parks are car parks,
    grass is something you smoke,
    birds are something you shag.
    Take your "Year in Provence"
    and shove it up your arse.
    Your Ladbroke Grove looks turn me on, yeah.
    With roach burns in designer dresses,
    skin stretched tight over high cheek-bones,
    and thousands of tiny dryness lines beating a path to the corners of your eyes.

    Walk Like A Man - Bruce Springsteen
    taken from the album Tunnel Of Love

    I remember how rough your hand felt on mine
    On my wedding day
    And the tears cried on my shoulder
    I couldn't turn away
    Well so much has happened to me
    That I don't understand
    All I can think of is being five years old following behind you at the beach
    Tracing your footprints in the sand
    Trying to walk like a man

    By Our Lady Of The Roses
    We lived in the shadow of the elms
    I remember ma draggin' me and my sister up the street to the church
    Whenever she heard those wedding bells
    Well would they ever look so happy again
    The handsome groom and his bride
    As they stepped into that long black limousine
    For their mystery ride
    Well tonight you step away from me
    And alone at the alter I stand
    And as I watch my bride coming down the aisle I pray
    For the strength to walk like a man

    Well now the years have gone and I've grown
    From that seed you've sown
    But I didn't think there'd be so many steps
    I'd have to learn on my own
    Well I was young and I didn't know what to do
    When I saw your best steps stolen away from you
    Now I'll do what I can
    I'll walk like a man
    And I'll keep on walkin'

    Two songs srping to mind, first Cradle To Enslave (Cradle Of Filth)

    Two thousand fattened years like maniacs
    Have despoiled our common grave
    Now what necrophagous Second Coming backs
    From the cradle to enslave?

    Sickle constellations
    Stud the belts that welt the sky
    Whilst the bitter winter moon
    Prowls the cloud, dead-eyed
    Like shifting parent flesh
    Under silk matricide...

    Watchful as she was upon Eden
    Where every rose arbour and orchard she swept
    Hid the hissing of a serpent Libido
    In an ancient tryst with catastrophe
    Soon the be kept

    Hear that hissing now on the breeze
    As through the plundered groves of the carnal garden
    A fresh horror blows but ten billion souls
    Are blind to see the rotting wood for the trees

    This is the theme to a better Armageddon
    Nightchords rake the heavens
    PAN DAEMON AEAON

    And what use are prayers to that god?
    As devils bay concensus for the space to piss
    On your smouldering faith
    And the mouldering face
    Of this world long a paradise lost

    This is the end of everything
    Hear the growing chora that a new dawn shall bring

    Danse macabre 'neath the tilt of the zodiac
    Now brighter stars shall reflect on our fate
    What sick nativities will be freed when those lights burn black?
    The darkside of the mirror always threw our malice back...

    I see the serpentine in your eyes
    The nature of the beast as revelations arrive

    Our screams shall trail to Angels
    For those damned in flames repay
    All sinners lose their lot on Judgement Day
    We should have cut our looses as at Calvary
    But our hearts like heavy crosses held the vain belief
    Salvation, like a promised nation
    Gleamed a claim away...

    This is the end of everything you have ever known
    Buried like vanquished reason
    Death is season
    Drive like the drifting snow
    Peace, a fragile lover, left us fantasising war
    On our knees or another f**ker's shore
    Heiling new flesh
    Read, then roared
    To a crooked cross and a Holy Cause
    What else be whipped to frenzy for?

    This is the end of everything
    Rear the tragedies
    That the Seraphim shall sing

    Old adversaries
    Next to Eve
    Now they're clawing back
    I smell their cumming
    As through webbed panes of meat
    Led by hoary Death
    They never left
    Dreaming sodomies
    To impress on human failure
    When we've bled upon our knees

    Tablatures of gravel law
    Shall see Gehennah paved
    When empires fall
    And nightmares crawl
    From the cradle to enslave....

    This is the end of everything

    And....

    Resurrection (Fear Factory)

    Consumed with memories that preceded today
    Given a chance to bereave life that’s slipping away
    Suffered through tragedy of my slow decay
    Deceptive tendencies dragged my soul away
    All that I know there was no God for me
    Force that shatters all, absence of mortality

    Revive all my fears
    Revive wasted tears
    Revive void within
    Revive once again...

    Forsaken by destiny, forsaken by my own mind
    I must remove my skin to see belief in your eyes
    All that I know there was no God for me
    Force that shatters all, absence of humanity

    Revive all my fears
    Revive wasted tears
    Revive void within
    Revive once again...

    Reach for the sky
    Touch the sky
    Revive a hope
    For mankind

    (Both songs really need to be sung by the respective groups to get the best idea)

    Danwin, i used to listen to Different Class all the time, its a fucking quality album, every tune is a classic!!! but here's a fave:

    "Bar Italia"

    Now if you can stand I would like to take you by the hand, yeah
    And go for a walk past people as they go to work.
    Oh, let's get out of this place before they tell us that we've just died.
    Move, move quick, you've gotta move.
    Come on it's through, come on it's time.
    Oh look at you, you,you're looking so confused just what did you lose?
    If you can make an order could you get me one.
    Two sugars would be great 'cos I'm fading fast and it's nearly dawn.
    If they knocked down this place, this place, it'd still look much better than you.
    Move, move quick, you've gotta move.
    Come on it's through, come on it's time.
    Oh look at you, you, you're looking so confused, what did you lose?
    Oh, it's ok it's just your mind.
    If we get through this alive I'll meet you next week, same place, same time.
    Oh move, move quick you've gotta move.
    Come on it's through, come on it's time.
    Oh look at you, you, you're looking so confused, what did you lose?
    That's what you get from clubbing it.
    You can't go home and go to bed because it hasn't worn off yet
    And now it's morning there's only one place we can go.
    It's around the corner in Soho where other broken people go. Let's go.

    John Mellencamp Small Town
    --------------------------

    Well I was born in a small town
    And I live in a small town
    Prob’ly die in a small town
    Oh, those small communities

    All my friends are so small town
    My parents live in the same small town
    My job is so small town
    Provides little opportunity

    Educated in a small town
    Taught the fear of jesus in a small town
    Used to daydream in that small town
    Another boring romantic that’s me

    But I’ve seen it all in a small town
    Had myself a ball in a small town
    Married an l.a. doll and brought her to this small town
    Now she’s small town just like me

    No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
    I cannot forget the people who love me
    Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
    And people let me be just what I want to be

    Got nothing against a big town
    Still hayseed enough to say
    Look who’s in the big town
    But my bed is in a small town
    Oh, and that’s good enough for me

    Well I was born in a small town
    And I can breathe in a small town
    Gonna die in this small town
    And that’s prob’ly where they’ll bury me


    Thin Lizzy Whiskey in the jar
    -----------------------------

    As I was goin’ over the cork and kerry mountains
    I saw captain farrell and his money he was countin’
    I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
    I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya

    Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
    Whack for my daddy-o
    Whack for my daddy-o
    There’s whiskey in the jar-o

    I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
    I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly
    She swore that she’d love me, never would she leave me
    But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy

    Being drunk and weary I went to Molly’s chamber
    Takin’ my money with me and I never knew the danger
    For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
    I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels

    Now some men like the fishin’ and some men like the fowlin’
    And some men like ta hear a cannon ball a roarin’
    Me I like sleepin’ specially in my Molly’s chamber
    But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah

    Song: Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1


    Her name is Yoshimi
    she's a black belt in karate
    working for the city
    she has to discipline her body

    'Cause she knows that
    it's demanding
    to defeat those evil machines
    I know she can beat them

    Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots eat me
    Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots defeat me

    Those evil-natured robots
    they're programmed to destroy us
    she's gotta be strong to fight them
    so she's taking lots of vitamins

    'Cause she knows that
    it'd be tragic
    if those evil robots win
    I know she can beat them

    Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots defeat me
    Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots eat me

    Yoshimi

    'Cause she knows that
    it'd be tragic
    if those evil robots win
    I know she can beat them

    Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots defeat me
    Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots defeat me

    Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots eat me
    Yoshimi, they don't believe me
    but you won't let those robots eat me

    He who tries, will be wasted
    Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

    REM. Great song, great lyric, from their latest album.

    "I Wanted To Be Wrong"

    You know where I come from
    You know what I feel
    You're Yul Brenner Westworld
    Reporting from the field.
    I threw it into reverse,
    Made a motion to repeal.
    You kicked my legs from under me,
    And tried to take the wheel.

    I told you I wanted to be wrong,
    But everyone is humming a song
    That I don't understand.

    Now I know that the sun has shined on my side of the street.
    The basket of America, the weevils and the wheat.
    The milk and honeyed congregation, scrubbed and apple-cheeked
    Salute Apollo 13 from the rattle jewelry seats.

    Mythology's seductive and it turned a trick on me
    That I have just begun to understand.

    I told you I wanted to be wrong,
    But everyone is humming a song
    That I don't understand.

    The rodeo is staged, gold circle goat-ropers and clowns.
    A rumble in the third act, tie 'em up and burn 'em down.
    We're armed to the teeth, born a little breech;
    Blue-plate special analysts, cells and SUV's

    We can't approach the Allies 'cause they seem a little peeved
    And speak a language we don't understand.

    I told you I wanted to be wrong
    But everyone is humming a song
    That I don't understand.

    (Prop up The Omega Man, we're primed for victory,
    God gave us the upper hand, there's honor among thieves.
    Temper it with arrogance, a dash of sad conceit.
    The top's down on the T-Bird, we're the children of the free)

    Storm into the boardroom of the conquering elite.
    Did you recognize the madman who is shouting in the streets?
    Destroy the things that I don't understand
    Destroy the things that I don't understand.

    Sonic Youth - Eric's Trip

    [Lee]
    {Whispered: Achooooo Braaaaancafest}
    I can't see anything at all
    All I see is me
    That's clear enough, that's what's important
    To see me

    My eyes can focus, my brain is talking
    It looks pretty good to me
    My head's on straight, my girlfriend's beautiful
    It looks pretty good to me

    Sometimes I speak
    Tonight there's nothing to say
    Sometimes we freak
    And laugh all day

    Hold these pages up to the light
    See the jackknife inside of the dream
    A railroad runs through the record stores at night
    Coming in for the deep freeze

    Mary: a simple word, are you there in the cold country?
    Your eyes so full, your head so tight
    Can't you hear me?
    Remember our talk
    That day on the phone
    I said I was the door, and you were the station
    With shattered glass, and miles between us
    We still flew away in the conversation

    My cup is full, and I feel okay
    The world is dull, but not today

    She thinks she's a goddess
    She says she talks to the spirits
    I wonder if she can talk to herself?
    If she can bear to hear it?

    This is Eric's trip
    We've all come to watch him slip
    He's slipping all the way to Texas
    Can you dig it?

    (Eric says "The sky is blue...")
    I see with a glass eye
    The pavement view
    A shadow forming, across fields rushing
    Through me to you

    We tear down our the world, and put up four walls
    I breathe in the myth
    I'm over the city, fucking the future
    I'm high and inside your kiss

    We can't see clear
    But what we see is alright
    We make up what we can't hear
    Then we sing all night

    Shattered pages and shattered lights
    See the jackknife; see the dream
    There's something moving over there, to the right
    Like nothing I've ever seen

    Widespread panic, Jack

    Jack was really a jester
    Who held his one good eye on the queen
    And there sat the king beside her
    He's pointing his sword up and down with every scene
    And the wizard's in the corner
    Catching peanuts between his teeth
    And the dogs lying in the shadow in the archway
    There's one good dog sleeping filled with good ol' dog dreams

    He slipped next to the wizard
    Whispered something deep, to the bottom of his ear
    A little joke, the one about the farmer's daughter
    How she was stomping on grapes, coming up with blue feet and beer
    And he slipped behind the queen
    Where the fools go the rich don't mind
    Lately the king's (k)nights have turned a little rusty
    And his halo - I mean his crown - has gone and slipped around his eyes

    The wizard's in the corner
    Pulling lizards between his knees
    And the dog he been long gone
    Gone to pitch for the winning team
    Fifty-two, I mean fifty-four bicycles on the wall
    Ready to ride, ready to ride until the last of them falls
    Jack's been cooking in the kitchen
    Whompin' up some biscuits for us all
    For us all, For us all
    Ready to ride, ready to ride, ride

    Heaven
    (David Byrne)

    Transcribed by: Kevin Watson


    Everyone's tryin' to get to the bar
    The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven
    In Heaven the band plays our favorite song
    They play it one more time they play it all night long

    Oh! Heaven. It is a place
    A place where nothing, nothing ever happens

    And there is a party. Everyone is there.
    Everybody gonna leave at exactly the same time.
    Its hard to imagine that nothin' at all
    Could be so exciting, could be this much fun.

    Oh! Heaven. It is a place
    A place where nothing, nothing ever happens

    And when the kiss is over, we'll start again.
    It won't feel any different. In fact it's exactly the same.
    Its hard to imagine that nothin' at all
    Could be so exciting, or this much fun

    Oh! Heaven. It is a place
    A place where nothing, nothing ever happens
    Oh! Heaven. It is a place
    A place where nothing, nothing ever happens

    Mercury Rev - Holes

    Time, all the long red lines, that take
    Control, of all th smokelike streams that flow into yr
    Dreams, that big blue open sea, that can't be
    Crossed, that can't be climbed, just born
    Between, oh th' two white lines, distant gods an' faded
    Signs, of all those blinking lites, you had t' pick the one tonite...

    Holes, dug by little moles, angry jealous
    Spies, got telephones for eyes, come t' you as
    Friends, all those endless ends, that can't be
    Tied, oh they make me laugh, an' always make me
    Cry, til they drop like flies, an' sink like polished
    Stones, of all th' stones i throw, how does that ol' song go
    how does that ol' song go...

    Bands, those funny little plans, that never work quite right.


    Pulp - Pencil Skirt

    When you raise your pencil skirt,
    like a veil before my eyes,
    like the look upon his face as he's zipping up his flies.
    Oh I know that you're engaged to him.
    Oh but I know that you want something to play with baby.

    I'll be around when he's not in town,
    I'll show you how you're doing it wrong,
    I really love it when you tell me to stop.
    Oh it's turning me on.

    You can tell me some lies,
    about the good times that you've had,
    but I've kissed your more than twice,
    and now I'm working on your Dad.
    Oh baby.



    I'll be around when he's not in town,
    I'll show you how you're doing it wrong,
    I really love it when you tell me to stop.
    Oh it's turning me on.

    If you look under the bed,
    then I can see my house from here,
    so just lie against the wall,
    and watch my conscience disappear now baby

    I'll be around when he's not in town,
    I'll show you how you're doing it wrong,
    I really love it when you tell me to stop.
    Oh it's turning me on.

    I only come here cause I know it makes you sad.
    I only do it cause I know you know it's bad.
    Oh yes I know,
    that it's ugly and it shouldn't be like that.
    Oh but oh it's turning me on.

    THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT - THE JAM. 1980 Paul Weller

    a police car and a screaming siren,
    a pneumatic drill and rippped up concrete,
    a baby wailing and stray dog howling,
    The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking.

    That's entertainment

    A smash of glass and the rumble of boots,
    an electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth,
    paint splatterd walls and the cry of a tomcat,
    lights going out and a kick in the balls.

    That's entertainment

    Days of speed and slow time mondays,
    pissing down with rain on a boring wednesday,
    watching the news and not eating your tea,
    a freezing cold flat and damp on the walls.

    That's entertainment

    waking up at 6:00 am on a cool warm morning,
    opening the windows and breathing in petrol,
    an amateur band rehearse in a nearby yard,
    watching the tele and thinking 'bout your holidays.

    That's entertainment


    Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes,
    cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume,
    a hot summers's day and sticky black tarmac,
    feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away.

    That's entertainment

    Two lovers kiss amongst the scream of midnight,
    two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude,
    getting a cab and travelling on buses,
    reading the grafitti about slashed seat affairs.

    That's entertainment.

    Absolute feckin' genius, nobody ever summed up what it was like to be a teenager growing up in Thatchers Britain quite like Paul Weller, this song supposedly written in 10 mins after a heavy night on the beer too.

    Bob Dylan - Forever Young

    May God bless and keep you always,
    May your wishes all come true,
    May you always do for others
    And let others do for you.
    May you build a ladder to the stars
    And climb on every rung,
    May you stay forever young,
    Forever young, forever young,
    May you stay forever young.

    May you grow up to be righteous,
    May you grow up to be true,
    May you always know the truth
    And see the lights surrounding you.
    May you always be courageous,
    Stand upright and be strong,
    May you stay forever young,
    Forever young, forever young,
    May you stay forever young.

    May your hands always be busy,
    May your feet always be swift,
    May you have a strong foundation
    When the winds of changes shift.
    May your heart always be joyful,
    May your song always be sung,
    May you stay forever young,
    Forever young, forever young,
    May you stay forever young.


    Fun Lovin Criminals - Big Night Out

    Axamillion morals, difference in opinion
    I was with him, he had 7 jack and cokes in him
    They had platform heels, nose job bills
    And some look like their ill with the fucked up grill
    Supermodels on my 'D', 1 2 3
    He said '2 for you, 2 for me'
    Face like a saint, suckin' like a sinner
    Cocaine makes you thinner, cocaine makes you thinner

    Chorus:
    I got supermodels on my 'D' (3x)

    Like Roger Grimsby on eye witness news
    Man he'll tell you the truth while he's singin' the blues
    Just like gasarama on Avenue B
    He'll check under the hood, man he'll teach you Tai Chi
    He laughed and with a gesture bought a drinks for the girls
    He said 'You gotta have the love in this fucked up world'
    You gotta have the love in this fucked up world
    You gotta have that sweet, sweet love
    That keeps your woman nigh - ooo bop bop shabba
    You gotta have that love, for the world
    the world ain't what it's cracked up, get it cracked up to be - ha ha ha
    Shoo be doo bop bop

    I got Supermodels on my 'D' (8x)

    Can't you see, can't you see
    That I got a supermodel on my 'D' (repeat to end)

    HAHA someone mentioned liza minelli!! :lmao:

    joost mate, that is one of best bob dylan songs ever, and he's got loads of great lyrics.

    LIKE A HURRICANE by Neil Young
    Once I thought I saw you in a crowded hazy bar,
    Dancing on the light from star to star.
    Far across the moonbeam I know that's who you are,
    I saw your brown eyes turning once to fire.

    You are like a hurricane
    There's calm in your eye.
    And I'm gettin' blown away
    To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
    I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

    I am just a dreamer, but you are just a dream,
    You could have been anyone to me.
    Before that moment you touched my lips
    That perfect feeling when time just slips
    Away between us on our foggy trip.

    You are like a hurricane
    There's calm in your eye.
    And I'm gettin' blown away
    To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
    I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

    You are just a dreamer, and I am just a dream.
    You could have been anyone to me.
    Before that moment you touched my lips
    That perfect feeling when time just slips
    Away between us on our foggy trip.

    You are like a hurricane
    There's calm in your eye.
    And I'm gettin' blown away
    To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
    I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

    I DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING by Aerosmith
    I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
    Watch you smile while you are sleeping
    While you're far away and dreaming
    I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
    I could stay lost in this moment forever
    Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

    I don't wanna close my eyes
    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
    And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
    Wondering if it's me you're seeing
    Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
    And I just wanna stay with you
    In this moment forever, forever and ever

    I don't wanna close my eyes
    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    I don't wanna miss one smile
    I don't wanna miss one kiss
    Well, I just wanna be with you
    Right here with you, just like this
    I just wanna hold you close
    Feel your heart so close to mine
    And stay here in this moment
    For all the rest of time

    Don't wanna close my eyes
    Don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    Cause I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    I don't wanna close my eyes
    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I'd miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing
    Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you, baby
    And I don't wanna miss a thing

    Don't wanna close my eyes
    Don't wanna fall asleep, yeah
    I don't wanna miss a thing

    DON'T THINK TWICE IT'S ALL RIGHT by Bob Dylan
    It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
    It don't matter, anyhow
    An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
    If you don't know by now
    When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
    Look out your window and I'll be gone
    You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
    Don't think twice, it's all right

    It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
    That light I never knowed
    An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
    I'm on the dark side of the road
    Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
    To try and make me change my mind and stay
    We never did too much talkin' anyway
    So don't think twice, it's all right

    It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
    Like you never did before
    It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
    I can't hear you any more
    I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road
    I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
    I give her my heart but she wanted my soul
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe
    Where I'm bound, I can't tell
    But goodbye's too good a word, gal
    So I'll just say fare thee well
    I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
    You could have done better but I don't mind
    You just kinda wasted my precious time
    But don't think twice, it's all right
