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.
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
It really doesn't get any better than that, does it? Straight dropping some Cartesian knowledge!
mine has always been:
"i'm me, me be, god-damn, i am"
Descartes was a fool (topic for a different thread) but classic line, I agree
I might get my ass beat,
My throat slit, and my fingers hacked
But I'll never miss another chance to watch my brother's back
-I Was Scared
OP's line is my favorite as well.
What's the deal, with my brain, why am i so obviously insane, in the perfect situation, i let love down the drain.
"I'm sick and tired of everybody tryin' to tell me what to do, if I needed your advice then surely I would come to you"
"Imma do the things that I wanna do, I aint gotta thing to prove to you"
-Pork and Beans- I also love the part where Rivers just sings "I don't care" over and over
And I like the part in troublemaker where Rivers says "Marryin' a b****, havin' seven kids" because it makes me giggle
I've always liked the honesty in this line;
I'm alot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me.
In between molecules of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide.
-Only In Dreams
All of I just threw out the love of my dreams
If i could only live off words and dreams..
I asked you if you have a good heart, you answered yes ill never do you harm.
I'm a burning candle and your a gentle moth teaching me to lick a little bit kinder..
all of butterfly..haha
