Here we go again. Now I know lots of you out there are fans of this band:


one last thing before I quit

I never wanted any more than

I could fit into my head I still remember

every single word you said and all the

shit that somehow came along with it

still there's one thing that comforts me

since I was always caged and now I'm free

When I Grow Up by Garbage. Had to research that on. Haven't listened to much Garbage. Listened to the first one a few times and the singles off Version 2.0. Anyway...damnit, I wanna post lyrics to Mother by Pink Floyd, but I you that's just gonna get me a bunch of blank stares, a few cricket chirps, two coughs and a tumbleweed rolling by. Let's try this one:


Spirit desire Spirit desire Spirit desire

We will fall Spirit desire We will fall

Spirit desire Spirit desire Spirit desire

We will fall Spirit desire We will fall

Everybody's talking 'bout the stormy weather

And what's a man do to but work out whether it's true?

Looking for a man with a focus and a temper

Who can open up a map and see between one and two

God, where have I been!


KoS, that earlier one of yours was from 'One Armed Scissor' by At the Drive-in.


JMT, your earlier one was from 'Plateau' originally by Meat Puppets and then covered by Nirvana.


Not sure about your recent one JMT.


Here's one from me:


..All the corpses like the way I play my guitar...

You're not supposed to post your own until you answered the previous. If you're eager to post your own, just enter the lyrics posted into to a search engine along witht eh word "lyrics" and you can figure it out in no time flat. Of course, it's more satisfying when you know the lyrics. Mine was "Teenage Riot" by Sonic Youth. I don't know yours MLB.

find, I just figured that songs would easily be forgoten and leave behind forever that way. But whatever!


Have you ever been out someplace,

recognizing everybody's face,

Until you realized that there was no one there you knew.

Have you ever walked through a room,

And it was more like the room moved around you,

Like there was a leash around your neck that pulled you through.

What I've felt

What I've known

Never shined through in what I've shown

Never be

Never see

Won't see what might have been

Dude, I know it's a little late, but I didn't even have to research it. "Unforgiven"--maybe it's "The Unforgiven"--I know the sequel's "The Unforgiven II"--by Metallica. :D


Can't believe no one got that before me, and before now.


Everyone's asleep.


--Oops, forgot my lyrics. Likely, no one'll remember this thread and I won't get replied to. No matter.


I love the way you speak, and I love the way you swear

I love the way you walk 'round with your head held in the air

I love the way your words move, and I love the way you drive

I love the way you're scared of people scared to be alive


I love the way you dress up on Saturday night

I love the way you never speak until it feels just right

I love the way you're spending all your money on yourself

I love the way you answer the phone and pretend you're someone else


Now, I don't wanna talk about the things you overcame

By draggin' up the past--I'd put you through it all again

I've got the greatest admiration for the way that you got through it

Couldn't ask nobody else to do it better than you do it

Hah..some people type fast ya know. Usually we give em fewer lyrics to get it too...its just that people forget we got people here from all over the states, europe etc...we listen to some similar shit but either were citing radio lyrics that we all know (like unforgiven) or a garage band that 3 guys worldwide know of. In the end, Jax or someone looks it up on google.


For instance, where's this come from?


"Do it for the strong; we do it for the meek...

boom it in ya, boom it in ya, boom it in ya jeep

or your Honda or your Beemer or your Legend or your Benz

the rave of the town to your foes and your friends.."


Its obviously rap, so you prolly dont know...nothin against your taste but for most on this board it aint there thing. See where it gets tricky?
