    After reading the "best qoute from anything" thread, i was wondering what are some people's favourite song qoutes?
     
  2. Ok this is the first one that jumps to mind but not even close to the best. "Stuck in the chair of the city gas chamber, why I'm here I can't quit remember, the surgon general say's it's hazardous to breath, I'd have another cigarett but I can't see"

    "I wonder when I wander home If I’ll be fit to drink alone.
    Sleep with my memories, Pictures, apologies.
    For every minute yesterday, Regret reminds me anyway.
    If I remember anything, I’ll make mistakes again."


    "Consider the odds,
    consider the obvious.
    The martyr is meaningless,
    the campaign has died.
    In the planning stages and the fallen faces
    are the singular proof that it was ever alive.


    This purchased rebellion has been outdated,
    denounced and rescinded and left to die championless.
    I begged you not to go.
    I begged you, I pleaded.
    Claimed you as my only hope
    and watched the floor as you retreated.


    Hope has sprung a perfect dive
    a perfect day, a perfect lie.
    A slowly crafted monologue conceding your defeat."



    "The first star I see may not be a star.
    We can't do a thing but wait.
    So lets wait for one more.
    The time such clumsy time in deciding if it's time.
    I'm careful but not sure how it goes.
    You can lose yourself in your courage.
    The mindless comfort grows when I'm alone with my "great" plans.
    This is what she says gets her through it:
    "If I don't let myself be happy now then when?
    If not now when? "

    The air was thick with cat calls (no pun intended),
    but not even a muscle in her neck did twitch
    as she sauntered straight to the heart of the alleyway.
    She knew what she wanted!
    She was lookin’ for that stud bull.
    She was lookin’ for that He cat.
    And that was me.

    Tommy the Cat is my name, and I say unto thee,

    Yep, very cool. Tom Waits doing the Tommy the cat voice is icing on the cake. Love that album.

  12. I think I have to go with the Dire Straits quote by FatFunker. I was in the middle of a set at the gym when I heard that...It's impossible to work out while you are laughing.

    I don't care if it hurts,
    I want to have control.
    I want a perfect body,
    I want a perfect soul.
    I want you to notice,
    when I'm not around.
    You're so ****ing special,
    I wish I was special.

    But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
    What the hell am I doing here?.
    I don't belong here

    Whatever makes you happy,
    whatever you want.
    You're so ****ing special,
    I wish I was special,

    ...I smoke two joints in the morning, I smoke joints at night, I smoke two joints in the afternoon it makes me feel alright. I smoke two joints in time of peace and two in time of war. I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints and then I smoke two more...
