I don't know how many people are going to be interested in this but it's worth a shot.

I love music and a lot of the lyrics can be poetic and pretty and help get me through the day. So I figured it would be cool to have a thread where everyone can post a line or a verse from a song that really reflects how they're feeling and stuff. Or if you just find it pretty. Who knows? It could help brighten other people's day too. :)

I guess I can start.

All this life is all for love
Its the only road Ill choose
And every street and avenue
Only one will lead me back to you
"All of Me" by Angus & Julia Stone
This has always just spoken to me.

Intestines slick with blood cannot escape my grip
Surgical incisions give way to frenzied carving
Delirium has taken hold, disembowelment is complete
Horror grips my mind, my entrails are in my hands
My entrails are in my hands
My entrails are in my haaaaands...


"Evisceration Plague" by Cannibal Corpse.
There is already a thread for this, isn't there? I'm pretty sure... it hasn't been posted in in forever though maybe it's been archived. Anyway I'll post lyrics later if that's the case. xD

OH GOSH. Really? In that case, feel free to delete this thread. I didn't see anything before.

idk i'm posting in this thread if anything i guess they can merge it


"something's gotta change, 'cause our love is the slowest moving train"
literally everything in a better son/daughter

also i love death cab:

Will I have learned so very little
When these bones are old and brittle?
I wait to talk when I should listen
And cloud mistakes with false revisions

All my friends are forward-thinking
Getting hitched and quitting drinking
And I can feel them pulling away
As I'm resigned to stay the same
and then there's marina and the diamonds:

Cause it's my problem
If I want to pack up and run away
It's my business if I feel the need to
Smoke and drink and swear
It's my problem, it's my problem
If I feel the need to hide
And it's my problem if I have no friends
And feel I want to die
also sometimes typing the lyrics just don't do them justice; like i love the part in teen idle that goes "super super super super! suicidal" but you'd have to really hear the song to get why i love that part so much

anyway yeah



My favourite band is The Mountain Goats, and not because they can't play music or sing (they can't) but because their lyrics are effing incredible. I'm going to post a bunch of random examples but honestly guys their stuff is fucking choice.
On the morning when I woke up without you for the first time
I felt free! (And I felt lonely and I felt scared)
And I began to talk to myself almost immediately
Not being used to being the only person there.
The first time I made coffee for just myself, I made too much of it
But I drank it all just cause you hated when I let things go to waste,
and I wandered through the house like a little boy lost in the mall
and an astronaut could have seen the hunger in my eyes from space.
King Saul fell on his sword when it all went wrong
And Joseph's brothers sold him down the river for a song
And Sonny Liston rubbed some Tiger balm into his glove
Some things you do for money
And some you do for love, love, love...
Raskolnikov felt sick, but he couldn't say why
when he saw his face reflected in his victim's twinkling eye
some things you do for money, and some you do for fun,
but the things you do for love are gonna come back to you one by one...
And way out in Seattle, young Kurt Kobain
snuck out to the greenhouse, put a bullet in his brain
snakes in the grass beneath our feet, rain in the clouds above
some moments last forever
and some flare out with love, love, love.
I always get a late start
when the sun's going down
and the traffic's thinning out
and the glare is hard to take
I wish the west Texas highway
was a mobius strip
I could ride it out forever
when I feel my heart break
I almost swear I hear it happen
it's that clear and that hard
I come in off the highway
and I park in my front yard
I fall out of the car
like a hostage from a plane
think of you a while
start wishing it would rain
I handed you a drink of
the lovely little thing on which our survival depends.
People say friends don't destroy one another,
what do they know about friends?
Stray syllables were gurgling
From her throat one at a time
Face hidden from my view
I let myself imagine she was you
If I ever want to drive myself insane,
all I have to do is watch you breathing
and at 5 AM, I turned the radio on,
and an old man's voice sang a short sweet song,
and then the static roared again hungry for blood
I heard the rain falling from the rain spout
down down into the sweet wet mud,
and you punched out all the windows
and the wind began to wail
and you gathered your hair behind your head
like god was gonna catch you by the pony tail
and then the old voice crackled through the static
and I felt young and alive
and the hair stood up on the back of my neck
we were rising from the grave, yeah yeah.
I hope that our few remaining friends give up on trying to save us
I hope we come up with a failsafe plot to piss off the dumb few that forgave us
I hope the fences we mended fall down beneath their own weight
and I hope we hang on past the last exit, I hope it's already too late
And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here someday burns down
And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away and I never come back to this town again
In my life
I hope I lie and tell everyone you were a good wife
I hope you die
I hope we both die
I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow I hope it bleeds all day long
Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises
We're pretty sure they're all wrong
I hope it stays dark forever, I hope the worst isn't over
and I hope you blink before I do
I hope I never get sober
And I hope when you think of me years down the line
you can't find one good thing to say
And I hope that if I found the strength to walk out
You'd stay the hell out of my way
I am drowning, there is no sign of land, you are coming down with me,
Hand in un-lovable hand
I hope you die, I hope we both die.


The Weakerthans are also up there, but they are more hit-or-miss for me. This song is holy shit though.

here's some song lyrics that give me feels:

The Academy Is... The Test
If this is a test,
I’m losing my shit
Would it kill you to care
As much as I did?
If this is a test,
I’m wasting my breath
You’re a stranger I know well,
And not at all.
All about your heart - Mindy Gledhill
I dont mind your odd behavior
Its the very thing I love
You´re a butterfly held captive
Small and safe in your cocoon
Go on you can take your time
Time is said to heal all wounds
Rainbow - Oh Land
Drive a little bit further
Don't get out, the morning wants to keep us safe in here
Resting on your shoulder
We won't go, until there's no
More people out there
Only you are on my rainbow
No one else here
Nothing gets near
Nothing's fast or slow
It's in-between
Where red and green
And land and oceans meet
Peacefully I'm quiet
Cause nothing here is
Mad, bad or dangerous to know
When I'm Alone - Lissie

But it's almost
Always never you
Never you
I scream like a child
My insides went wild
When I'm alone with you
you make me feel
you are the one
One More Day - Lydia

Don't you say that I've gone crazy.
Because I haven't gone crazy yet.
I just lost my mind,
But I still got you.

Stay up late so you're sure.
Sure that I wont stray too far,
But surely that got too hard.
Love is not for me,
I promise.
by the same artist:
Is it a wonder you're lonely,
Taking chances to feel again.

I down this bottle of wine,
I don't know how to feel but
I don't mind the buzz
As the night moves slow you
look more and more like someone I could
love tonight
without the fuss

And the feelings
I don't know if you've been there
I don't think I can go there again
