    Put them all here, no need to explain why...lyrics are not to be analyzed.


    Here's a couple:

    You are my center when I spin away...

    Code - A Cloud Formed Teardrop Asylym

    I am ready to face my fears
    As my consciousness disappears
    To the internal sanctuary of seers
    Where the clouds last for years & years

    Anything by Dia Psalma really. no band come close to them lyric-wise.

    other than that:
    anything by Katatonia or Trent Reznor.
    "Raubtier - Kamphund" is the best song to warm up with before a fight or something. I listen to it everytime before I play a football match.

    "Here at the edge of this world
    Here I gaze at a pantheon of oak, a citadel of stone
    If this grand panorama before me is what you call God. . .
    Then God is not dead..."

    That there
    That's not me
    I go
    Where I please
    I walk through walls
    I float down the Liffey
    I'm not here
    This isn't happening
    I'm not here
    I'm not here

    Devin Townsend - Earth Day

    Eat your beets, recycle...recycle...
    Don't eat your beets, recycle...recycle

    The message is; 'THERE IS NO MESSAGE'

    Babe, you better not ever think,
    Staring into the drink...get out of my mind...
    Cause I may not be the one to say,
    is there no other way we could do this another day?

    I saw God.

    She said...'If you don't believe me, guaranteed you'll never leave me'
    On your way, and out of my time
    But I didn't even know if it was true or just a result of chemicals



    And so on. Love all the lyrics in this song really.

    Love those lyrics and that song.


    Like snowfall, you cry a silent storm
    Your tears paint rivers on this oaken wall. . .
    Amber nectar, misery ichor
    . . .cascading in streams of hallowed form
    For each stain, a forsaken shadow

    And the lyrics in all of "You were but a ghost in my arms". I also love the vocal passage at the end of Bloodbirds, "Our fortress is burning against the grain of the shattered sky" etc.

    John Haughm certainly has a way with words.

    As an appetizer,I let you taste my daughter" by Bloodbath.

    Completely agree. Also, pretty much anything Katatonia. Can't think of any in particular right now though.
