Lyrical phrases that for some reason get to you

    To be honest, I've never bothered to read Opeth lyrics, cause the lyrics themselves don't really connect with me.

    Just remembered that my signature quote is actually from a really cheesy Symphony X song (The Accolade) chorus. But hey, here goes:

    Into the morning sun
    Down his chosen road he rides to
    save the world
    Cross of crimson, robe of white
    Sworn to the quest for the rest of
    his life

    Play shields and wooden swords
    Slaying dragons as a knight of
    Arthur's Court
    Trained to kill, to sing a song
    Youthful hope to right the wrong

    Sons of Antioch
    An angel's voice cries out to him
    Free the holy lands,
    bring peace to it again

    Across the seas through sands of time
    Knight of the Templar
    A charging steed through lands unkind
    A legend forever


    Yup, cheesy stuff, but I kinda like it!

    "What could be better? The homies together. So won't you come clean?"

    I don't know the name of the artist. The song was playing on some tv show. The lyrics are obviously dealing with homosexual issues.

    the leper affinity and deliverance have some godd lyrics.

    FOr instance deliverance:

    Mercy in my eyes
    Is the shade of the night

    very clear metaphor reallyit is perhaps not the most "beautiful" or "good" (Define "good") but its nonetheless very clear and above all, easy to understand. Basically the whole deliverance song stands out as easily understood but still maintaining the "lyrical atmosphere"

    Between love and hate
    Which path to follow?
    How can I keep balance in this race?
    Come faith, I'm dying...

    Amused by the trials and tribulations
    If I survive I fly from here
    But as the chosen pessimist

    I carve my name in stone



    felt like posting it in this thread too. I know, the song sucks.

    Dream Theater - Lines in the Sand

    Sometimes, if you're perfectly still
    You can hear the virgin weeping
    For the savior of your will
    Sometimes, your castles in the air
    And the fantasies you're seeking

    Are the crosses you bear

    Sacred conflict, blessed prize
    Weeping crosses, stainless eyes
    Desperate addict, faith disguised

    Swept away with the tide
    Through the holes in my hands
    Crown of thorns
    At my side drawing lines in the sand


    King Crimson - Epitaph

    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams,
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    As silence drowns the screams.


    And Mike isn't the greatest lyricist in the world - but for me the ending of Demon of the Fall is one of his best moments. Also, that Agalloch quote was the first thing I was going to put here ;)

    I suggest that we post only a couple of "lyrical phrases" instead of whole song lyrics and I would also like you guys to express why (some reasons) these lyrics get to you.

    From Katatonia - Brave

    The sound of falling
    When the pictures are moving
    Between the memories
    Dead in time

    The way Åkerfeldt sings those lines just make them so damn great.

    From Ghost of Perdition;

    The incoherent talk of ordinary days,
    why would we really need to live?

    From Fantasia (Stratovarius);

    What kind of man kills
    because of ideology?
    What kind of god justifies
    violence?

    From Honey & Sulphur (Cradle of Filth);

    Jesus saves but the devil made him.

    I quote myself.
    This whole MJ-thing is exactly what this song is about.
    I dislike just about everyone right now for pretending to be his biggest fan, even though they hated him before.
    PEOPLE ARE GRINDIN' MY GEARS! :(

    Anathema - One Last Goodbye (pretty simple, still great):

    Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
    Somehow I knew you could never, never stay
    And in the early morning light
    After a silent peaceful night
    You took my heart away
    And my being

    In my dreams I can see you
    I can tell you how I feel
    In my dreams I can hold you
    And it feels so real

    For me it's not about that...i never was a fan, i just think it's weird when somebody you've heard about through your whole life dies, but i never said it made me sad.
    I know for a fact that everyone in this forum has somekind of personal experience or impact involving michael jackson.
