    post some of your favorite lyrics or artist you would consider being amazing lyricists.

    Sometimes music seems so poetic.
    (Also post artist and song Incase I want to check it out TIA)


    I really like Issac Brock, front man of Modest Mouse

    “If life’s not beautiful without the pain, well I’d just rather never ever even see beauty again. Well as life gets longer, awful feels softer, and it feels pretty soft to me.” “The view” modest mouse


    “I wish I could take the pain away, if you can make it through the night there’s a brighter day. Everything will be alright if you hold on. It’s a struggle everyday, gotta roll on.” “Changes”-2pac

    Rush - Bastille Day

    Ooh, there's no bread, let 'em eat cake
    There's no end to what they'll take
    Flaunt the fruits of noble birth
    Wash the salt into the earth

    But they're marching to Bastille Day
    La guillotine will claim her bloody prize
    Free the dungeons of the innocent
    The king will kneel and let his kingdom rise

    Ooh, bloodstained velvet, dirty lace
    Naked fear on every face
    See them bow their heads to die
    As we would bow when they rode by

    And we're marching to Bastille Day
    La guillotine will claim her bloody prize
    Sing, oh choirs of cacophony
    The king has kneeled to let his kingdom rise

    Lessons taught but never learned
    All around us anger burns
    Guide the future by the past
    Long ago the mould was cast

    For they marched up to Bastille Day
    La guillotine claimed her bloody prize
    Hear the echoes of the centuries
    Power isn't all that money buys

    Rush - Natural Science

    [1. Tide Pools]

    When the ebbing tide retreats
    Along the rocky shoreline
    It leaves a trail of tidal pools
    In a short-lived galaxy
    Each microcosmic planet
    A complete society

    A simple kind mirror
    To reflect upon our own
    All the busy little creatures
    Chasing out their destinies
    Living in their pools
    They soon forget about the sea...

    Wheels within wheels in a spiral array
    A pattern so grand and complex
    Time after time we lose sight of the way
    Our causes can't see their effects

    [2. Hyperspace]

    A quantum leap forward
    In time and in space
    The universe learned to expand

    The mess and the magic
    Triumphant and tragic
    A mechanized world out of hand

    Computerized clinic
    For superior cynics
    Who dance to a synthetic band

    In their own image
    Their world is fashioned
    No wonder they don't understand

    [3. Permanent Waves]

    Science, like nature
    Must also be tamed
    With a view towards its preservation
    Given the same
    State of integrity
    It will surely serve us well

    Art as expression
    Not as market campaigns
    Will still capture our imaginations
    Given the same
    State of integrity
    It will surely help us along

    The most endangered species
    The honest man
    Will still survive annihilation
    Forming a world
    State of integrity
    Sensitive, open and strong

    Wave after wave will flow with the tide
    And bury the world as it does
    Tide after tide will flow and recede
    Leaving life to go on as it was...

    Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence

    [Verse 1]
    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    [Verse 2]
    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by
    The flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    [Verse 3]
    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Don't you dare mess with my mean machine
    It's long and slick and olive green
    Don't you dare mess with my mean machine
    A '68 coupe is all I need
    So don't ya dare mess with my mean machine
    Don't f*ck with it"

    "Woke up this morning and it seemed to me,
    That every night turns out to be
    A little bit more like Bukowski
    And Yeah, I know, he's a pretty good read,
    But god who'd want to be, god who'd want to be such an asshole?"


    One of my favorite bands singing about my favorite poet lol

    "Oh, say can you see,
    by the dawn's early light.
    What so proudly we hail
    at the twilight last gleaming.
    Who's brought stripes and bright stars
    through the perilous night.
    O'er the ramparts we watched . . . ."

    Falalalan falan falalalera
    Falalalan as the shepherd herds
    Falalalan falan falalalera
    Falalalan as the shepherd herds

    When I come home from herding the cattle
    Everybody calls me Pedro the recently married
    Yes that's true as I am with the master's daughter
    and this little ring she gave me
    Falalalán falán…

    There high up in Val de Roncales
    There I have my food and my firestones
    And my little haversack made of deer skin
    There I make my fire and I feel at home
    Falalalán falán…

    In Lent I don't eat anything
    I don't eat sardines, nor salted food
    What I actually want nobody makes
    Bread crumps with oil set my teeth on edge
    Falalalán falán…
