refused - the shape of punk to come
'i've got a bone to pick with capitalism, and a few to break!'
'a friend in needs a friend indeed, a friend with weed is better'
"For sale? dumb cunts same dumb questions. Virgin? All virgins are liars honey."
They say I made the moon
Everything was in the dark
No memories at all
Just a tiny freezing wind in my back
As I was sitting there
Singing a song they had never heard before
Suddenly, a voice told me
"Keep on singing, little boy
And raise your arms in the big black sky
Raise your arms the highest you can
So the whole universe will glow"
couldn't think of my actual favourite of the top of my head
"I must have read a thousand faces, I must have robbed them of their cause"
although "It doesn't matter if we all die" comes to mind too.
(Relationship of Command and Pornography respectively)
Teenage angst has paid off well.
Now I'm bored and old.
Self-appointed judges judge.
More than they have sold.
(and I just had a flashback to the day I bought this on tape when it came out and played it when I got home from school)
sample, not lyric but still the best by far. As I say in any of these threads. Hooray for Boobies by The Bloodhound Gang in case you didn't know.
"I'm a streetwalking cheetah with a heart full of napalm" probably, or
"Once I was an embryo, til I got the old heave-ho"
weird weird weird.
But "This is the home of the vain!" from "The Classical" by The Fall is pretty damned good.
HEY THERE FUCK FACE
By the 2nd verse dear friends, my head will burst, my life will end, so i'd like to start this one off by saying live and love.
Dont think it gets much better than that^ okkervil river- John Allyn Smith sails
and i think they're on to me.
sets the tone perfectly.
I am also a fan of:
"WE JUST WANNA EMOTE TILL WE'RE DEAD!"
"There are nights when I think that Sal Paradise was right - boys and girls in America have such a sad time together."
and others too but I don't want to list too many.

laying on the bathroom floor, kitty licks my face once more, & I, I should try, but waking up is harder when you want to die.
sets the tone that this isnt the album for and 'eels on soundtrack to disney film' album.
Smiled and said 'yes I think we've met before'. In that instant it started to pour*
even if it fucking kills me.
You kill me with your smelly fingers, your smelly fingers from the sex you had on Christmas Day
Well son, the funny thing about regret is,
It's better to regret something you have done,
Than to regret something you haven't done.
And by the way, if you see your mom this weekend,
Be sure and tell her, SATAN, SATAN, SATAN!!!
Oh how is it that I could come out to here and be stiiiiiill floating?

"Burn these sheets that we've just fucked in"
we blew the doors, didn't we
pissed in their champagne
If I ignore it, it gets uncomfortable, she wants to argue about the past....
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! PLEASE TAKE YOUR SEUUURGGHTSSSS!
modest mouse-shit luck
yeah, i know it dosen't open the album but it is still the best lyric to open a song.
but it's not like we're really going anywhere
in a jack-knifed juggernaut i am born again
after years of waiting, nothing came.
'You ain't nothing to me if you got nothing to say;
I don't know what you got that I can use anyway'
JET from their legendary album GET BORN... Arr YOUGUNNABEMA...GRRRL!?!
'If we stand here together
And we see the world as one
We may think there’s no future
But it’s the same for everyone.'
KULA SHAKER Peasants, Pigs and Astronauts FTW!
Failing that, whatever opened the OPM or Alien Ant Farm records!
Rejoice a noble birth, a prince is born. Behold: the birth of violence, beasts of fang and feather cry for our concrete rapture, and if we beg to be put down, unto us the most inspired storm.
although I'm not sure it counts as ALL the lyrics are this good.
"In 1984 I was hospitalized for approaching perfection". Great lyrics band.
I wonder how much stick I'll get?
it was the moment i stopped liking bloc party. :)
what we don't know! cannot hurt us!
We blew the doors didn't we?
Pissed in their champagne
And did a real thing didn't we?
There's only one year left.
One of the funniest intros i've ever heard.
Did you miss me?
I bet you did.
Did you miss me?
And what I did?
How's it going kid?
Hows the love life?
