    Share with us your favorite lyric lines from tunes that are nearand dear to you. I'll start with;

    "Hitched a ride with a vending machine repairman
    Said he'd been down this road more than once or twice
    He was really high on intellectualism
    Ain't never been there but the brochure sure looks nice"

    Hatesong by Porcupine Tree

    "This is a hate song just meant for you
    I thought that I'd write it down while I still could
    I hope when you hear this you'll want to sue"


    ...or
    The Sound Of Muzak by Porcupine Tree

    "The music of rebellion
    Makes you want to rage
    But it's made by millionaires
    Who are nearly twice your age"

    when we are young
    wandering the face of the earth
    wonderingt what our dreams might be worth
    learning that we're only immportal -
    for a limited time

    - dreamline, rush


    every single word of "circle game" by joni mitchell

    Yesterday a child came out to wonder
    Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
    Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
    And tearful at the falling of a star

    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
    Skated over ten clear frozen streams
    Words like, when you're older, must appease him
    And promises of someday make his dreams

    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
    Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
    And they tell him,
    Take your time, it won't be long now
    Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down

    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
    Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
    There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
    Before the last revolving year is through

    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return, we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    We can walk our road together
    If our goals are all the same.
    We can run alone and free
    If we pursue a different aim.

    Switching it over to AM
    Searching for a truer sound
    Can't recall the call letters
    Steel guitar and settle down
    Catching an all-night station somewhere in Louisiana
    It sounds like 1963, but for now it sounds like heaven

    So, so you think you can tell
    Heaven from hell
    Blue skies from pain
    Can you tell a green field
    From a cold steel rail
    A smile from a veil
    Do you think you can tell

    Did they get you to trade
    Your heroes for ghosts
    Hot ashes for trees
    Hot air for a cool breeze
    Cold comfort for change
    Did you exchange
    A walk on part in the war
    For a lead role in a cage.

    How I wish, how I wish you were here
    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
    Year after year
    Running over the same old ground
    What have we found
    The same old fears
    Wish you were here

    --Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here

    Their love was meant to last forever, them together;
    But the loved ones in our world will come and go.
    Their time and lives go quickly by, and she still cries,
    Remembering that autumn night that left her all alone.

    One of mine...

    Old Friend (I'll Have To Run)

    it’s funny how it’s good
    to have you as a friend
    even though you’re like a stray
    I never should have fed
    and I’ve accepted the notion
    you’ll always be around
    wonderin how I’ve been
    as that first one goes down

    (chorus)
    here we go
    again
    two old friends
    I’ll play the part
    I always do
    lay all my fears
    and hurt on you
    when you start feelin empty
    I’ll be about done
    it’ll be closing time anyway
    then I’ll have to run
    .....aint I always had to run

    (second verse )
    I always was the one
    who never took the blame
    any time one was leavin
    denial named the game
    and through all the years you’ve listened
    never gave your point of view
    there’s times I’ve sat and wondered
    who’s really using who

    (chorus)
    here we go
    again
    two old friends
    I’ll play the part
    I always do
    lay all my fears
    and hurt on you
    when you start feelin empty
    I’ll be about done
    it’ll be closing time anyway
    then I’ll have to run
    .....aint I always had to run

    (bridge)
    what’s that they say about all bottled up
    I’ve got me enough to fill two
    so I’ll pour it out as I pour you in
    let it flow and give me some room

    (chorus)
    here we go
    again
    two old friends
    I’ll play the part
    I always do
    lay all my fears
    and hurt on you
    when you start feelin empty
    I’ll be about done
    it’ll be closing time anyway
    then I’ll have to run
    .....aint I always had to run

    You're in a fight to the death my friend
    Black metal t-shirts your shield
    You've got your past on your breath my friend
    Now name all the monsters you've killed
    Let's name all the monsters you've killed

    So if you wake up with the sunrise
    And all your dreams are still as new
    And happiness is what you need so bad
    Girl, the answer lies with you, yeah

    I looked for you at every fiesta
    For you I wanted to meet
    Maybe I’d sell you a chicken
    With poison interlaced with the meat.

    Greetings from the North,

    Hear the sounds of life and death
    surging through the dank cement
    Merge with the infinite
    But I'm not ready for that yet...
