  1. Funky Ghost

    Funky Ghost Translucently Groovy

    Summer Highland Falls

    They say that these are not the best of times
    But they’re the only times I’ve ever known
    And I believe there is a time for meditation
    In cathedrals of our own

    Now, I have seen that sad surrender in my lover’s eyes
    And I can only stand apart and sympathize
    For we are always what our situations hand us
    It’s either sadness or euphoria

    So we’ll argue and we’ll compromise
    And realize that nothing’s ever changed
    For all our mutual experience,
    Our separate conclusions are the same

    Now we are forced to recognize our inhumanity
    Our reason coexists with our insanity
    And though we choose between reality and madness
    It’s either sadness or euphoria

    How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies
    Perhaps we don’t fulfill each others fantasies
    And as we stand upon the ledges of our lives,
    With our respective similarities
    It’s either sadness of euphoria

    ~ Billy Joel

    You have to be trusted
    By the people that you lie to
    So that when they turn their backs on you
    You'll get the chance to put the knife in

    Dogs
    Pink Floyd
    Animals

    No body can turn a phrase like Roger Waters

    I don't know why but I could probably scroll along all damn day reading one or a few lines from tunes that are cherry picked by the poster... but I have no interest in reading a whole song's worth of lyrics.

    You talk too much
    You worry me to death
    You talk too much
    You even worry my pet

    You just talk
    Talk too much

    1. I would love to tour the Southland
      In a traveling minstrel show
      Yes I'd love to tour the Southland
      In a traveling minstrel show
      Yes I'm dying to be a star and make them laugh
      Sound just like a record on the phonograph
      Those days are gone forever
      Over a long time ago, oh yeah
      I have never met Napoleon
      But I plan to find the time
      I have never met Napoleon
      But I plan to find the time
      'Cause he looks so fine upon that hill
      They tell me he was lonely, he's lonely still
      Those days are gone forever
      Over a long time ago, oh yeah
      I stepped up on the platform
      The man gave me the news
      He said, You must be joking son
      Where did you get those shoes?
      Where did you get those shoes?
      Well, I've seen 'em on the TV, the movie show
      They say the times are changing but I just don't know
      These things are gone forever
      Over a long time ago, oh yeah
     
  7. I am young in this world
    I am glad that I’m alive
    I know someday, I’ll fly away

    Those are really Steven Wilson songs. He’s pretty vocal about making that distinction. :bored:

    You can feel it in the distance the deeper down You stare
    From up above it's hard to see
    But you know when you're there
    On the bottom words are shallow
    On the surface talk is cheap
    You can only judge the distance by the company you keep

    She said, you're a good man, Baby
    To treat me like you do
    She said, you ain't done nothin' to me
    I just can't stay here with you
    I stood and watch my baby as far as I could see
    You know the girl started runnin'
    After waiving goodbye to me
    Now that was too much for me
    That's why I walked the backstreets and cry

    Walk the Backstreets and Cry (Little Milton)

    A fun bass line on this track too!

    Sometimes you get too close to see
    A different side of what life can be
    And if you stare too long
    It all becomes a blur
    And it's easy to forget just who we are
    Don't stare too hard
    Just take a look around

    -"Too Close To See" by Strung Out

    'N' every gimmick hungry yob digging gold from rock 'n' roll
    Grabs the mike to tell us he'll die before he's sold
    But I believe in this and it's been tested by research
    He who f**ks nuns will later join the church

    -"Death Or Glory" by The Clash

    They're listed as Porcupine Tree songs on YouTube and they're off PT albums. I guess he can sue me if he wants...

    No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains
    Til a man from the northeast arrived
    Waving hundred dollar bills, he said "I'll pay you for your minerals"
    But he never left Harlan alive

  20. How could I forget this classic Floyd gem:

    Time spent lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain,
    you are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today

    And then one day you find, ten years have got behind you
    no one told you when to run; you missed the starting gun


    And you run and you run, to catch up with the sun as it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again

    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    shorter of breath and one day closer to death.


    Goosebumps every time.
