    Cleverest lyric?

    No matter how many times I hear it, I still can't think past:

    "Space may be the final frontier
    But it’s 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.."

    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.

    Whooooop to ES, mad song, though I`m a tad sick of it now.

    "Shake their spears with Shakespeare."

    I`ll certainly post more up later. SOAD have some mad ones about war.

    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. "

    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
    off.
