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"
"From a thousand branches, spreading the new voice."
the squirrel wheel begins,
Fasten the left-hand belts.
Remember not to think too much,
and your trip will be numbingly pleasant."
"Can we identify them,
As the flint buried in our reptile skulls,
Or the time-bomb coded in our DNA?"
"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."
I refuse to pick just one.
"I feel like shit, but at least i feel something"
I really don't have anything to say...
"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.
"We've only seen the outlines of the beginning, and this core the slowly moving raptor, will make the very notion of Hell seem celestial in comparison."
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.
Turning, twisting the alphabet.
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.''
''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"
I have a better plan
I Have a better plan
I have a better plan
I HAVE A BETAA PLAAAAN
, nah my favourites are off Colony
My favs are mostly on Colony

...You did make me semi-grin though, I'll give you that, but keep it serious for once -.-
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."
How do you know I wasn't being serious... I do listen to BVB after all
@ 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
Under the fading sun,
Searching for shelter,
I feel my time has cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!"
Poor Anders, he's got such a tough life
"Discover me like emptiness--a defense for a broken heart" -discover me like emptiness
"From green to red our days by.
waiting for a sign to tell us why
are we dancing all alone
collect some stars to shine for you,
but start today cause theyre only a few--
a sign of times my friend"
"gather the faithful and propose to the epoch of indifference" -ordinary story
"one night is a mare; two is worse
how can i manage three?"
"we the plague of terra firma;
natures grand and last mistake,
plant the poisoned seeds cancer
set the severed fruits awake"
"Archaic pearls of sleep and death,
the voice of december losing its breath
and the floweryard of white and grey is haunted
white as the down of the flaking snow--heroic emblems of life."
"I'll crawl through knives an inch per tear" -crawl through knives
"I once read a poem, held my breath, but that moments gone..." -evil in a closet
"Im selling heavenly sketches..." -my sweet shadow
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
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
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.
