Just pick one, limit it to a couple lines if you can.

 

Somewhat of an experiment, as much has been said about lyrical quality over the last few albums, so if I get enough replies I would be curious to see to which album/era/song most of your choices pertain. I wonder how the distribution will turn out.

 

I'll start.

 

As if I could live on words and dreams and a million screams. Oh, how I need a hand in mine to feel.

 

-Across the Sea

 

OK GO!

can i quote the whole "Falling For You"?
It has to either be that same line from across the sea or "You can't avoid her She's in the air In between molecules Of oxygen and carbon dioxide" from only in dreams.
Rivers is a lyrical genius though so almost all of his songs have a real good line or 2
And when it's partytime like 1999, I'll party by myself because I'm such a special guy.

RULEBREAKER!

 

I get to pick, I pick the first one.

"gonna make my chance, gonna rock and dance. gonna hit the ground with a brand new sound lookin' for romance"

 

 

ALRIGHT!

 

SO FAR HERE ARE THE STATS, ROUGHLY.

 

OVERWHELMINGLY, most people's choices are coming from Pinkerton-era or pre-Pink music. A little bit of Blue sprinkled in so far, lots of Pinkerton.

 

Greatest Man That Ever Lived is getting lots of love, with a couple votes for Troublemaker as well, so looks like Red isn't doing badly either.

 

One vote for a lyric off of Hurley.

let's keep dis goin'

mine has always been:

"i'm me, me be, god-damn, i am"

Whah???  I don't really get your +1 comment.  And yes, I was serious.  I have lots of favorite lyrics, but I'm a rule player so I chose one of them.  I stand by it :)

+1 this post for every Red album, Hurley, or Raditude quote.

"I'm such a mystery, as anyone can see, there isn't anybody else exactly quite like me.  And when it's party time, like 1999, I'll party by myself because I'm such a special guy"

 

 

"Oh girl
when I'm in love with you
keep fishin'
if you feel it's true
there's nothing much
that we can do
to save you from yourself"

 

Keep Fishin'

If you want to destroy me sweater

Hold this thread as I walk awayyyyyyyyy

Watch me unravel I'll soon be naked,

lyin' on the floor

I've come undone

It's hard to choose, but I'll go with:

When I'm stable long enough,

I start to look around for love

See a sweet in floral print

My mind begins the arrangements

-Pink Triangle

It really doesn't get any better than that, does it? Straight dropping some Cartesian knowledge!
