No matter how many times I hear it, I still can't think past:
"Space may be the final frontier
But itís made in a Hollywood basement"
No doubt others will now beat it though.
An insane coincidence! I was thinking how clever that lyric was about an hour ago!.. I don't usually listen to the chilli's..
You can pick so many from that song..
"A teenage bride with a baby inside, getting high on information
and buy me a star on the boulevard, thats Californication.."
"I love you like a fat kid loves cake"
marc, i think that lyric is indeed very clever
Yeah, Californication has got some great lyrics.
One of my favourite lyrics would be:
"Hush little baby, don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beast under your bed
In your closet, in your head"
I don't know if you'd call it clever but its good..
A little while ago I was thinking about some great lyrics around, and now I've forgotten them all :@
For cleverest lyrics, I nominate Madvillain - Great Day...a link since you have to listen/read to all the lyrics to really 'get' it.
"Shake their spears with Shakespeare."
I`ll certainly post more up later. SOAD have some mad ones about war.
"Bounce pogo, pogo, pogo, pogo, pogo, pogo..."
Hang on, thats more stupid than clever..
"If songs could kill
I'd spell out your name"
Tom McRae - Boy With The Bubblegun
Every at the drive in/the mars volta song is pretty wild literacy wise.
but my personal faves are from Park:
Park - Which Wrist First
"Don't let me shut this light
For the killer in my head
Needs a signal to prove that I am not dead just yet
But burned out and going blue
The salt is set with open wounds
Doused and fresh
Just act as if I'm gone
And decaying in my room
I hold a shadow as close as a silver ghost
Grasps onto an image known to him as you
At this fast rate, I'll be lucky if I'm dead by morning
Tonight I'm spent
Pretend this razor is your lips
You're finding ways to kiss
(Ways to kiss me)
Deeply on the wrists
I loved what I had
It's impossible to get it back"
Park - Pomona For Empusa
"Are these lungs desperatley filled by someone
starving and sad,
because you know your lover,
won't be back?
Are these words useless and absurd?
Such a sight of this,
makes the harbor and the water sick.
I understand your reasons,
for this awkward dance.
I'd leave me, too,
if I thought I had the slightest chance.
I cry loud to these sheets they grip back tight.
Fall asleep to the sound of my own life.
If I drink this bottle fast enough,
I might get lucky and won't wake up. "
"Stupid people do stupid things, smart people out-smart each other."
...that`s pretty cool.
I had a date
It didnt go well
I wonder if its
The way that I smell?
Well I took a shower
but sometimes you just cant tell
What will turn some people
