Best lyrics in a song? (even if you hate the song)

I was watching the real blair witch a minute ago and a cover of mad world by Tears for Fears was on....Its also used in my favourite film Donnie Darko - dunno who its by but its awsome. The lyrics to that song are so fantastically depressing it made me wonder are there any lyrics better? so post your favourite lyrics to a song (I know the Smiths have loads )




All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tommorow, no tommorow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

The Donnie Darko soundtrack is excellent and very fitting to the film.

I really like Killing Moon (E&TBM?)
Not sure who covers 'Mad World' but once again it's a great track for the film

There are lots, but I love "Jilted John" by Jilted John.

"I was so upset that I cried all the way to the chip-shop"

A brilliant line, and funny cos it contains an element of reality.

That is pretty cool

Killing moon is echo+his bunny men - a fantastic song, made better by the opening scene of Donny Darko - brilliant!

I love Just - Radiohead for its line "You do it to yourself, you do, you and knowone else" and one of my all time favs, Love will tear us apart - Joy Division.

When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways, taking different roads
Then love, love will tears us apart again
Love, love will tears us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
You've turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect run so dry
Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives
But love, love will tears us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

You cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed
And there's a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Just that something so good just can't function no more
But love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Tindersticks - Jism

The further I fall
The more I know
The tighter your grip around me
So easily broken
Running down your skin
And the pain runs into the blue
If there's ever anyone else, I'll understand
And kill them

If I had $1000000 (if I had $1000000)
I’d buy you a green dress (but not a real green dress, that’s cruel)

Relax don't do it when you want to come,
Come oh oh oh!

But shoot it in the right direction, Make makin' it your intention!
(Ooh yeah! Ooh yeah!)

Got to hit me (Hit me) hit me (Hit me)
Hit me with those laser beams, Laser beam me!

Relax. Don't do it..
Relax.. When you want to come!
Come Oh!
I'm coming I'm coming Yeah hit me yeah yeah!

Relax don't do it Rushing inside me! When you want to go to it,
Relax don't do it when you want to come,
Relax don't do it when you want to sock it to it,
Relax don't do it (love), when you want to come,
When you want to come, When you want to come,
Come!

Huh! Get it on the scene of love, Oh feel it!

Relax don't do it when you want to to go to it,

Relax don't do it when you want to sock it to it,

[b]Golden Brown[b] by the Stranglers ignoring the ''drug'' reference (which I only found out about a few years ago :rolleyes: ) contains some wonderful lyrics. Just the way they flow...

B!

She said I know you and you cannot sing,
I said that's nothing you should hear me play piano.

The Queen is Dead by The Smiths.


But I'm warning you, don't ever do
those crazy, messed-up things that you do
If you ever do,
I promise you I'll be the first to crucify you

Dear God - XTC

Dear God, hope you got the letter, and...
I pray you can make it better down here.
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
but all the people that you made in your image,
see them starving on their feet
'cause they don't get enough to eat from God,
I can't believe in you

Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but...
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear.
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
and all the people that you made in your image,
see them fighting in the street
'cause they can't make opinions meet about God,
I can't believe in you

Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
Did you make mankind after we made you? And the devil too!

Dear God, don't know if you noticed, but...
your name is on a lot of quotes in this book,
and us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,
and all the people that you made in your image
still believing that junk is true.
Well I know it ain't, and so do you, dear God,
I can't believe in
I don't believe in

I won't believe in heaven and hell.
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.
You're always letting us humans down.
The wars you bring, the babes you drown.
Those lost at sea and never found,
and it's the same the whole world 'round.
The hurt I see helps to compound
that Father, Son and Holy Ghost
is just somebody's unholy hoax,
and if you're up there you'd perceive
that my heart's here upon my sleeve.
If there's one thing I don't believe in

it's you...

Dear God.

How stunning are these lyrics:

Pigs, they tend to wiggle when they walk
the infrastructure rots
and the owners hate the jocks
with their agents and their dates

if the signatures are checked
you'll just have to wait

and we're counting up the instants that we save
tired nation so depraved
from the cheap seats see us
wave to the camera
it took a giant ramrod
to raze the demon settlement

but high-ho silver, ride
high-ho silver, ride

take another ride to see me home
listen to me! i'm on the stereo stereo
oh my baby baby baby baby babe
gave me malaria hysteria

what about the voice of geddy lee
how did it get so high?
i wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?
(i know him and he does!)

and you're my fact-checkin' cuz
(Aww...)

well focus on the quasar in the mist
the kaiser has a cyst
and i'm a blank want list
the qualms you have and if they stick
they will drown you in a crick
in the neck of a woods
that was populated by
tired nation on the fly
everybody knows advice
that was give out for free
lots of details to discern
lots of details

but high-ho silver ride
high-ho silver ride
takes another ride to make me
oh, get off the air
i'm on the stereo stereo
oh my baby baby baby baby baby babe
gave me malaria hysteria
