    ... there really are too many, but great idea for a thread.

    I had a job
    And a piece of land
    My sweet wife was my best friend
    But I traded that for cocaine and a whore....

    Something to Believe In -

    Twenty-two years of mental tears
    Cries a suicidal Vietnam vet
    Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
    To find his country didn't want him back
    Their bullets took his best friend in Saigon
    Our lawyers took his wife and kids,
    No regrets
    In a time I don't remember
    In a war he can't forget
    He cried forgive me for
    What I've done there
    'Cause I never meant the things I did"



    That whole song has always resonated with me.

    Oh, and lately this line has stuck in my head...

    Seether - Dangerous
    God I hope you choke on hate and stomach bile

    She's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake.

    The whole song is full of good lines, but somehow that one stuck.

    I was once out walking one very hot summers day when I thought I'd lay myself down to rest in a big field of tall grass I lay there in the sun and felt it caressing my face as I fell asleep and dreamed I dreamed I was in a hollywood movie and that I was the star of the movie this really blew my mind the fact that me an overfed long haired sleeping gnome...

    huh thought I'd remember more. never realized how much of this I have to mumble.... Oh well, Spill The Wine is a great song

    I do love that song, and that sentiment, and I still wonder why “Her Majesty” is tacked on at the end. It’ll be something deep and philosophical I expect, don’t take it all too seriously, I don’t know.

    Like the lion tears the flesh off of a man
    So can a woman who passes herself off as a male
    They sang "Danny Boy" at his funeral and the Lord's Prayer
    Preacher talking 'bout Christ betrayed
    It's like the earth just opened and swallowed him up
    He reached too high, was thrown back to the ground
    You know what they say about bein' nice to the right people on the way up
    Sooner or later you gonna meet them comin' down

    Many of the ones mentioned have stuck with me, too. Here's a couple more:

    I don't pray, but sometimes I find something worthy of praise. Nature, God, I'm grateful for the problems I've got -- their scope and scale, and what they are and what they are not. (Self Defense Family)

    Intravenously polite, it was the walkie-talkies that knocked the pins down as their shoes gripped the dirt floor in the silhouette of dying.
    (At the Drive In)

    I got a guitar at an early age. Fiddled around, never learnt to play.

    And if California slides into the ocean
    Like the mystics and statistics say it will
    I believe this hotel will be standing
    Until I pay my bill
