    In terms of lyrics, I liked Colony the best

    "for those who cling to this
    dominion will partake in its fall"

    "Despite all the misguided faith, I'll find a place in this mess" (have this tattooed on my arm)

    "Early morning moments
    A glimpse of joy
    But soon it's over and I return to dust"

    Swim
    "From a thousand branches, spreading the new voice."

    Episode 666
    "Welcome here,
    the squirrel wheel begins,
    Fasten the left-hand belts.
    Remember not to think too much,
    and your trip will be numbingly pleasant."

    Jotun
    "Can we identify them,
    As the flint buried in our reptile skulls,
    Or the time-bomb coded in our DNA?"

    Coerced Coexistence
    "Don't hurt a fly, they all sing.
    We're all just ants in a great big play.
    Commercialize, Infect. Annihilate, progress. Visualize, Inhale. Pretend, betray."

    Brush the Dust Away
    "Hey, get in line for tragic,
    Let us dance to the pistol magic.
    Just aim and end another.
    But think, as I rape your mother."



    So manyyyyy... :worship:
    I refuse to pick just one.

    "Drug me, infiltrate my never land
    Like the floodtide drowning the shore"

    "An all too ordinary story
    The aftertaste so bitter, so bitter
    Forced to be someone I don't want to be
    I'm losing myself
    Sinking deeper down in a word wound web"

    "How much can we take before we care to settle
    Thought we were set for a perfect scene"

    There's way too many to name but these are just a few off the top of my head.

    Apart from everything already posted...

    From Bullet Ride:

    ''And takes you to the end, where it begins.''

    Also, the chorus, which is also my all-time IF chorus music wise.

    ''Silent screaming.
    Turning, twisting the alphabet.
    Frantic eyes
    Awaiting the answer.
    Splinters of a poem.
    Fragments of what you used to be.
    Habitual and gullible.
    Run-down memoirs is all that's left.''

    Abnegation:

    ''We are the scavengers
    We plunder and rape
    We're the guests here
    The new breed
    But act like its ours to take''

    Another Day In Quicksand:

    ''I see beauty in dead flowers
    I let the tide show me what's next
    But all you do is fade away''

    Honorable mention that makes me laugh everytime I hear it, from Clayman:

    ''I've tried confidence, had it for breakfast today''

    Dismiss The Cynics:

    ''If we fail our expectations
    We will fall into the deepest void
    Is there a limit to how many times
    We will dust ourselves off?''

    ''Would you choose supremacy
    If it led to isolation?
    Could you handle the solitude?
    Would you still prefer the throne? ''

    And lastly, Embody The Invisible:

    ''I demand nothing, but I want it all
    what privilege do we have under the sun,
    that gives us the right to the throne?

    species come and go, but the earth stands forever fast
    all river runs towards the sea, but the sea is never full''

    Satellites and Astronauts:

    "Buy me a trip to the moon
    so I can laugh at my mistakes
    I can see the end from here
    From this perspective it looks kind of silly
    Satellites and astronauts
    Tell me there are greater things ahead"

    Great personal lyrics:

    "Your presence kept me floating far from depths where secrets lie,
    Maybe in another lifetime, I could be the first you meet?"

    "Spent some quality time with a demon of mine,
    He said "I like the way you struggle, but you know I'm here to win."

    "You stole my pure intentions, you are the sickness inbetween."

    "Be gentle to the tear in his eye, lonesome arms, lost his wings again."

    Great global/impersonal lyrics:

    "Jotun, a body of black that carried no reflection."

    "A world where fashion outshines morality."

    "What decides when you've lost the war? When the first man falls, or when they erase it all?"

    "We are ghosts of a concrete world, genetic codes of a dying breed..."

    "We would make the very notion of hell seem celestial in comparison."

    "There is no trace of me in their altered blueprints of life."

    @ DE4life, here's another one for your list

    "I feel the fear takes hold
    Afraid this hell I create is my own
    Calm my franticness, I can't take it anymore,
    This used to be my own world,
    But now I've lost control :erk:

    Chasing leftovers,
    Under the fading sun,
    Searching for shelter,
    I feel my time has cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!" :yell:

    :ill:

    a sign of times my friend"

    oh and WWtM

    "Raindrop hits the leaf changing it's position slightly on the street
    next to polls of monotonous waters He walks Slipping feet from
    steps at random He falls

    In the space of between his body and the ground
    comets cast off their names stellar neurones misfire

    Witnesses
    inhale the seed
    and spit out a million branches

    Buds abloom in all directions
    frin which events occur
    relations and virused meetings
    catch fire and explode
    In the margin of butterfly wings
    entire cycles of evolution
    outplayed and faded
    sparked away and leaned back into
    vacuum-filled nirvana

    Between the two of my eyes
    feverish fractal scar
    Dance like were they on drugs
    peyote labyrinth re-mapped exits
    A hasty blink
    and a million life-to-comes
    will never be the same
    as they never were

    In the kinetic energy of a moving fist
    lies a birth-machine for a parallel universe

    With the first movement in organic scap
    came a bouquet of alternative answers
    all different multiplied and re-divided

    Coded in the spinal cord of a trilobite
    written between the legs on the Meganeura
    suburban city maps and dormant dictator semen
    marked their way through time"

    I love these lyrics too. It is really interesting that flowers are so often mentioned in flames lyrics. I love flowers and generally I am of the opinion that flowers are something very positive. I love to send flowers to friends and family. So it is somehow quite funny that flowers are so often mentioned in such lyrics.
