Post some song lyrics that you believe have real meaning and that can really get to you. Stuff the artist(s) have put alot into and are trying to express themself.

Elliott Smith - King's Crossing

the king's crossing was the main attraction
dominoes are falling in a chain reaction
the scraping subject ruled by fear told me
whiskey works better than beer
the judge is on vinyl, decisions are final
and nobody gets a reprieve
and every wave is tidal
if you hang around
you're going to get wet
i can't prepare for death any more than i already have
all you can do now is watch the shells
the game looks easy that's why it sells
frustrated fireworks inside your head
are going to stand and deliver talk instead
the method acting that pays my bills
keeps the fat man feeding in beverly hills
i got a heavy metal mouth that hurls obscenity
and i get my check from the trash treasury
because i took my own insides out

it don't matter cause i have no sex life
all i want to do now is inject my ex wife
i've seen the movie
and i know what happens

it's christmas time
and the needles on the tree
a skinny santa is bringing something to me
his voice is overwhelming
but his speech is slurred
and i only understand every other word
open your parachute and grab your gun
falling down like an omen, a setting sun
read the part and we turn out fine
it's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive
but i don't care if i fuck up
i'm going on a date
with a rich white lady
ain't life great?
give me one good reason not to do it

this is the place where time reverses
dead men talk to all the pretty nurses
instruments shine on a silver tray
don't let me get carried away
don't let me get carried away
don't let me be carried away

Everclear - wonderful

I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope it's over when I open them

I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
Make everything be wonderful again

Hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
Hear them scream, I hear them fight
They say bad words that make me wanna cry

Close my eyes when I go to bed
And I dream of angels who make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything when you're little and the world's so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now

Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

I go to school and I run and play
I tell the kids that it's all okay
I laugh aloud so my friends won't know
When the bell rings I just don't wanna go home

Go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I don't believe you when you say
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything when you're little and the world is so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

No
No, I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
No
No, I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you say
That I will understand someday
No, no, no, no

I don't wanna hear you say
You both have grown in a different way
No, no, no, no

I don't wanna meet your friends
And I don't wanna start over again
I just want my life to be the same, just like it used to be

Some days I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

Its arguable that wonderful is emo... But I don't care, its not emo in the modern day stuff like simple plan and what not, its real. Its true and its got actual emotion behind it, its not written just to follow a trend.

Any way go ahead and post some of yours

slipknot-before i forget

Go!

Stapled shut, inside and ouside would and I'm
Sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm
Catostrophic, not again
I'm smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me up on all your sordid little insurrections,
I've got no time to lose, and I'm just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the strings
Throw the sheathes
Hold your breath
And listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I'm ripped across the ditch, and settled in the dirt and I'm
I wear you like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscrestions
I've got no right to way, I'm just caught up all the battles

Locked in clutch
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
And listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

My end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road is my end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
THE END OF THE ROAD!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OH!

i want to know what inspired this song

Manntis - Axe of Redemption

Fallen before me
The bringers of despair
Forgiveness will be forgotten
The time has past to care
Bow down and beg redemption
Severed is my control
Swing the axe cry for justice
Watch the heads begin to roll

Bow down and beg
Time to pay
Axe redemption

This time no one lives
No one will breathe again
Sacrifice what you have stolen
Time to pay
No time for your forgiveness
This time you fucked yourself
Once again bow down and beg
Time to pay

Time to pay
Bow down
This time
Swing the Axe
Sacrifice
Heads roll
your lost soul

This song is about chopping peoples heads off, its so touching.

http://www.slipknot-metal.com probably the best fan site you can find. this site is very good and personal favorite.


Staind - Epiphany

Your words to me just a whisper
Your face is so unclear
I try to pay attention
Your words just disappear

'Cause its always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said

So I speak to you in riddles because
My words get in my way. I smoke the
whole thing to my head and feel it
wash away 'cause i can't take anymore
of this, I want to come apart.
or dig myself a little hole inside
your precious heart

'Cause its always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said

I am nothing more than a little boy inside
That cries out for attention
yet I always try to hide
'Cause I talk to you like children,
Though I don't know how I feel
But I know I'll do the right thing
If the right thing is revealed

'Cause its always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said

Hyde- "The Other Side"

“And the sea
Waits to bring me down
Drown me in its waves
Still I have no doubt
This meaning of life

Wearing this shroud I’ve journeyed long
I’ve seen so many worlds in my time
Wandering far and back again
My soul is getting worn
And the happiness like a firework
Hows it shone, now it’s gone

And the sea
Waits to bring me down
Drown me in its waves
Still I have no Doubt
This meaning of life

I know that darkness follows light
I see the traps that stand in my way
I’ll use my head to make it through
Believers get it tough
Everything I cherished so dearly
Wasn’t love, wasn’t love

And the Sea
Waits to bring me down
Drown me in its waves
Still I have no doubt

Though my flesh
Perishes in time
I will reach the shore
On the other side

This meaning of life"

i think almost all Atreyu songs have good lyrics. Very interesting, coz i find that alot of their stuff is apparent to what people feel today. And metallica, eg Nothing else matters, or Turn the Page.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OH!

Those were the strongest lyrics I've read since since U2's Vertigo.

Most of A Perfect Circle's songs have real deep and cryptic lyrics. And you have to listen to the songs about 20 times before you can work out what they mean.

Riders on the storm...

Anyone ever read the poem form from American Poet?

THE HITCHHIKER
Stood by the side of the road
And leveled his thumb
In the calm calculus of reason

Hi. How you doin'? I just got back into town. L.A.
I was out on the desert for awhile.
Riders on the storm
Yeah. In the middle of it.
Riders on the storm
Right . . .
Into this house we're born
Hey, listen, man, I really got a problem.
Into this world we're thrown
When I was out on the desert, ya know,
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
I don't know how to tell you,
Riders on the storm
but, ah, I killed somebody.
There's a killer on the road
No . . .
His brain is squirming like a toad
It's no big deal, ya know,
I don't think anybody will find out about it, but . . .
Take a long holiday
just, ah . . .
Let your children play
this guy gave me a ride, and ah . . .
If you give this man a ride
started giving me a lot of trouble,
Sweet family will die
and I just couldn't take it, ya know?
Killer on the road
And I wasted him.
Yeah.

Stealing People's Mail

this song really speaks to me and emotionally affected me.

"Stealing People's Mail" by The Dead Kennedys
We ain't goin' to the party
We ain't goin' to the game
We ain't goin' to the disco
Ain't gonna cruise down main
We're stealing peoples' mail
stealing peoples' mail
stealing peoples' mail
on a Friday night
Drivin' in the mountains
Winding round and round
Rummage thru your mailboxes
Take your mail back to town
And we got license plates, wedding gifts, tax returns,
Checks to politicians from real estate firms,
Money, bills and cancelled checks,
Pretty funny pictures of your kids
We're stealing peoples' mail
On a Friday night
We're stealing peoples' mail
By the pale moonlight
We got grocery sackful after grocery sackful
After grocery sackful after grocery sackful
After grocery sackful after grocery sackful
Of the private lives of you
Ha ha
People say we're crazy
We're sick and all alone
But when we read your letters
We're rolling on the floor
We got more license plates, wedding gifts, tax returns,
Checks to politicians from real estate firms,
Money, bills and cancelled checks
We cut relationships with your friends
We're gonna steal your mail
On a Friday night
We're gonna steal your mail
By the pale moonlight
We better not get caught
We'll be dumped in institutions
Where we'll be drugged and shocked
'Til we come out born-again Christians...

Riders on the Storm is great, but right now I'd have to go with Franz Ferdinand-The Fallen. I was on a discussion webiste with that song, and the innuendos they put into those lyrics are so amazing.
