    Already posted some of them here and there:

    So, in answer to the prayer,
    The one you feel is there,
    The one you feel so close to (The order of the Sun).
    And everyone is one,
    And all the pieces fit together.
    Did it all begin with Someone?
    Did it all begin with Someone?
    I couldn&#8217;t admit to being alive! (yes)

    Relayer, all the passion spent on one cross
    Relayer, sail the futile wars they suffer
    Relayer, we advance, we retrace our story
    Fail safe now (yes)'

    Sometimes I freeze...until the light comes
    Sometimes I fly...into the night
    Sometimes I fight...against the darkness
    Sometimes I'm wrong...sometimes I'm right (Rush)

    And the sign said "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sound of silence (Simon/Garfunkle)

    They say there are strangers who threaten us
    In our immigrants and infidels
    They say there is strangeness too dangerous
    In our theaters and bookstore shelves
    That those who know what's best for us
    Must rise and save us from ourselves (Rush)

    There was a young girl, whose heart was a frown
    'Cause she was crippled for life, and she couldn't speak a sound
    And she wished and prayed she could stop living,
    So she decided to die
    She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
    And to her legs she smiled "you won't hurt me no more"
    But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say
    "Look a golden winged ship is passing my way."

    And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...
    And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually... (Jimi)

    I know this one may be "teen", but i was down as i never figured i could be when it sounded.

    Stolen by Kelly Rowland

    He was always such a nice boy, the quiet one with good intentions
    he was down with his brother, respectful to his mother
    but good don&#180;t get attention
    one kid with the promise
    the brightest kid in school, he&#180;s not a fool
    reading books &#180;bout science and smart stuff, it&#180;s not enough no
    cause smart don&#180;t make you cool

    well, he&#180;s not invisible anymore
    with his father&#180;s nine and a broken fuse
    since he walked through that classroom door
    he&#180;s all over prime time news

    Mary&#180;s got the same size hands as Marilyn Monroe
    she put her fingers in the imprints
    at Mann&#180;s Chinese Theatre Show
    she couldn&#180;t been a movie star
    never got the chance to go that far
    her life was stole, now we&#180;ll never know

    they&#180;re crying to the camera, said he never fitted in, he wasn&#180;t welcome
    he&#180;d show up to the parties we was hanging in
    some guys were putting him down, bulling him &#180;round
    now i wish i would have talked to him
    gave him the time of day, not turn away
    if i would&#180;ve then it wouldn&#180;t maybe go this far
    he&#180;d might&#180;a stayed at home playing
    angry chords on his guitar

    Greg was always getting net from 21 feet away
    he had a try out with the sixahs couldn&#180;t wait for saturday
    now we&#180;ve never gonna see him slam
    flying as high as Kobe can
    his life was stole, now we&#180;ll never know

    sometimes life is hard

    I never wanted to be your weekend lover
    I only wanted to be some kind of friend
    Baby, I could never steal you from another
    It's such a shame our friendship had to end

    Amazing song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This song still gives me chills, but the line that floors me is
    "You remain my power, MY PLEASURE, MY PAIN !"

    and from Ani diFranco, " 'Cause I know there is strength in the differences between us, and I know there is comfort where we overlap"

    Here's to Life


    Lyrics - Phyllis Molinary, Music - Artie Butler

    No complaints and no regrets
    I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets
    And I have learned that all you give is all you get
    So give it all you've got

    I had my share, I drank my fill
    And even though I'm satisfied, I'm hungry still
    To see what's down another road, beyond a hill
    And do it all again

    So here's to life
    And every joy it brings
    Here's to life
    To dreamers and their dreams

    Funny how the time just flies
    How love can go from warm hellos to sad goodbyes
    And leave you with the memories you've memorized
    To keep your winters warm

    But there's no yes in yesterday
    And who knows what tomorrow brings, or takes away
    As long as I'm still in the game, I want to play
    For laughs, for life, for love

    So here's to life
    And every joy it brings
    Here's to life
    To dreamers and their dreams
    May all your storms be weathered
    And all that's good get better

    Here's to life
    Here's to love
    And here's to you

    I don't know about the "best", but I'll be posting what's dear to me...

    "Bittersweet Symphony" - The Verve

    'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
    Try to make ends meet
    You're a slave to money then you die
    I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
    You know the one that takes you to the places
    where all the veins meet yeah,

    No change, I can change
    I can change, I can change
    But I'm here in my mold
    I am here in my mold
    But I'm a million different people
    from one day to the next
    I can't change my mold
    No, no, no, no, no

    Well I never pray
    But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
    I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
    I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
    But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

    No change, I can change
    I can change, I can change
    But I'm here in my mold
    I am here in my mold
    And I'm a million different people
    from one day to the next
    I can't change my mold
    No, no, no, no, no
    I can't change
    I can't change

    'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
    Try to make ends meet
    Try to find some money then you die
    I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
    You know the one that takes you to the places
    where all the things meet yeah

    You know I can change, I can change
    I can change, I can change
    But I'm here in my mold
    I am here in my mold
    And I'm a million different people
    from one day to the next
    I can't change my mold
    No, no, no, no, no

    I can't change my mold
    no, no, no, no, no,
    I can't change
    Can't change my body,
    no, no, no

    I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
    I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
    Been down
    Ever been down
    Ever been down
    Ever been down
    Ever been down
    Have you ever been down?
    Have you've ever been down?

    The opening bass riff should be familiar to the MTV Generation...

    "What is this garbage you're watching? I want to watch the news!"

    "This is the news..."

    "Peace Sells" - Megadeth

    What do you mean, "I don't believe in God"?
    I talk to him every day
    What do you mean, "I don't support your system"?
    I go to court when I have to
    What do you mean, "I can't get to work on time"?
    I got nothing better to do
    And, what do you mean, "I don't pay my bills"?
    Why do you think I'm broke? Huh?


    If there's a new way,
    I'll be the first in line
    But it better work this time


    What do you mean, "I hurt your feelings"?
    I didn't know you had any feelings
    What do you mean, "I ain't kind"?
    Just not your kind
    What do you mean, "I couldn't be the President
    of the United States of America"?
    Tell me something, it's still "We the people," right?


    If there's a new way
    I'll be the first in line
    But it better work this time


    Can you put a price on peace?

    Peace
    Peace sells...
    Peace
    Peace sells...
    Peace sells... but who's buying?
    Peace sells... but who's buying?
    Peace sells... but who's buying?
    Peace sells... but who's buying?
    No, peace sells...

    'freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose' and 'I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday' from 'Me and Bobby McGee', in my opinion two of the best lines in any song.

    ...and with a emphatic nod for the heads-up on this one to HickBoy, and to all the religion threads...

    And not that I actually believe I've done anything that God will fuck me up for doing...

    "Hand Of The Almighty" - John R. Butler

    Oh, sinner, do not stray
    From the straight and narrow way
    For the Lord is surely watching what you do
    If you approach the Devil's den
    Turn 'round don't enter in
    Lest the hand of the almighty fall on you

    He'll fuck you up (he'll fuck you up)
    Yes, God will fuck you up
    If you dare to disobey his stern command
    He'll fuck you up (he'll fuck you up)
    Don't you know he'll fuck you up
    So you better do some prayin' while you can

    Long ago a man named Lot
    Had a wife he thought was hot
    But she could not stop her black and sinful ways
    You know it was her own damn fault
    When God turned that bitch to salt
    That's the way he used to work back in those days

    He fucked 'em up (he fucked 'em up)
    He really fucked 'em up
    When the people went and turned their backs on him
    He can fuck you up (he'll fuck you up)
    No shit he'll fuck you up
    Just like he fucked the people up back then

    I used to have a friend named Ray
    Who walked that evil way
    He cursed and drank and broke his neighbor's fence
    You know Ray was full aware
    That some sheep were over there
    And he knew them in the Biblical sense

    God fucked him up (he fucked him up)
    He went and fucked Ray up
    Went and paid him back for all his wicked sins.
    He fucked him up (he fucked him up)
    Fucked that boy completely up
    Now he's married to a Presbyterian

    Other sweet lil lyrics i've loved (see if these ring a bell)...

    Please don't wake me no don't shake me
    Leave me where I am I'm only sleeping.

    Mister City Policemen sitting pretty little policemen in a row...

    One pill makes you larger
    And one pill makes you small,
    And the ones that mother gives you
    Don't do anything at all.


    Love - Devotion - Feeling - Emotion
    Don't be afraid to be weak
    Don't be too proud to be strong
    Just look into your heart my friend
    That will be the return to yourself
    The return to innocence


    All alone the captain stands
    Hasn’t heard from his deck hands.
    The gambler tips his hat and walks towards the door.
    It’s the second half of the cruise.
    And you know he hates to lose.

    THE RECEIVING END OF SIRENS- "This Armistice"

    Your gross fabrication of pretense could bore,
    Yet still I fall victim to syntax omitted,
    Just shy of something I could understand
    So blissful, I press on to the sound of the organs
    Playing their most convincing tunes
    As they serenade to the parade of paid-off parts

    And now the only thing left to discuss is
    The details of this armistice
    We've come to this agreement...

    Check my vitals
    The truth is vile, but vital to this cause
    I've been held hostage;
    A captive of this passive shell
    Give me gravity, give me clarity,
    Give me something to rely on

    We're all puppets (Tell me who's pulling the strings)
    We're all marionettes
    We're all puppets (Tell me who's that you move for)
    We're all marionettes

    These body parts are parts of plans,
    Passed by my hands
    My hands shake through handshakes,
    Forsaken by my limbs
    My limbs sing the hymns;
    The hymns of a tyrant in a crumbling pantheon
    As inhabitants will raise their fists and bid him to disarm

    Check my vitals
    The truth is vile, but vital to this cause
    I've been held hostage;
    A captive of this passive shell
    Give me gravity, give me clarity,
    Give me something to rely on

    We're all puppets (Tell me who's pulling the strings)
    We're all marionettes
    We're all puppets (Tell me who's that you move for)
    We're all marionettes

    And now the only thing left to discuss is
    The details of this armistice
    We've come to this agreement...

    Oh, how I've been teething (Tell me who's pulling the strings)
    In light of your misleading
    You've caused this collapse (Tell me who's that you move for)
    Between the heart and the synapse

    We're all puppets
    We're all marionettes
    We're all puppets
    We're all marionettes

    ...The strings and joints will join us together...
    The strings and joints will join us
    The strings and joints will join us together...

    Forgive sounds good, forget i´m not sure i could
    they say time heals everything but i´m still waiting
    i´m through with it down, there´s nothing left for me
    to figure out
    i´ve paid a price and i keep paying

    i´m not ready to make nice
    i´m not ready to back down
    i´m still mad as hell and i don´t have time
    to go round and round and round
    is too late to make it right
    probably i wouldn´t if i could
    coz i´m still mad as hell
    can´t bring myself to do what it is you think i should

    Cause everybody hurts sometimes, but some are hurted everytimes

    Ok, let me correct.


    Forgive, sounds good
    Forget, I’m not sure I could
    They say time heals everything
    But I’m still waiting

    I’m through with doubt
    There’s nothing left for me to figure out
    I’ve paid a price
    And I’ll keep paying

    I’m not ready to make nice
    I’m not ready to back down
    I’m still mad as hell and
    I don’t have time to go round and round and round
    It’s too late to make it right
    I probably wouldn’t if I could
    ‘Cause I’m mad as hell
    Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

    I know you said
    Can’t you just get over it
    It turned my whole world around
    And I kind of like it

    I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
    With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
    It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
    Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
    And how in the world can the words that I said
    Send somebody so over the edge
    That they’d write me a letter
    Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
    Or my life will be over

    I’m not ready to make nice
    I’m not ready to back down
    I’m still mad as hell and
    I don’t have time to go round and round and round
    It’s too late to make it right
    I probably wouldn’t if I could
    ‘Cause I’m mad as hell
    Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

    I’m not ready to make nice
    I’m not ready to back down
    I’m still mad as hell and
    I don’t have time to go round and round and round
    It’s too late to make it right
    I probably wouldn’t if I could
    ‘Cause I’m mad as hell
    Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

    Forgive, sounds good
    Forget, I’m not sure I could
    They say time heals everything
    But I’m still waiting

    "My Curse" - Afghan Whigs

    You hurt me baby
    I flinch so when you do
    Your kisses scourge me
    Hyssop in your perfume
    Oh, I do not fear you
    And slave I only use
    As a word to describe the special way I feel for you
    You look like me
    And I look like no one else
    We need no other
    As long as we have ourselves
    But I won't cry about it
    Every time you get obsessed
    Every time I came undressed
    All ugly thoughts are gone
    I'm sure we'll all be friends
    I'll try to break your back
    You'll try to make amends
    Curse softly to me baby
    And smother me in your love
    Temptation comes not from hell but from above
    And there's blood on my teeth
    When I bite my tongue to speak
    Zip me down, kiss me there
    I can smile now
    You won't find out ever
    Hurt me baby
    I flinch so when you do
    Your kisses scourge me
    Hyssop in your perfume
    Oh I do not fear you
    And slave I only use as a word to describe
    The way I feel when I'm with you
    If I have to lie about it everytime I came undressed
