|I am the parasite who travels two by two|
In the past year or so, as I've discovered bands like The Antlers, I've realized just how important lyrics are to a song. Here's some of my favorites.
But you came back to see me for a minute or less
And left me your ring in my fist
My hair started growing, my face became yours
My femur was breaking in half
The sensation was scissors and too much to scream
So instead, I just started to laugh
|2||The Tallest Man On Earth|
The Wild Hunt
Oh but rumor has it that I wasn't born
I just walked in one frosty morn
Into the vision of some vacant mind
Sleep Is For The Week
We're going nowhere slowly, but we're seeing all the sights.
And we're definitely going to hell,
But we'll have all the best stories to tell.
Songs Of Love And Hate
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I'm glad you stood in my way.
If you didn't care
What happened to me
And I didn't care
Zig-zag our way
Through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain
Wondering which of the buggers to blame
For pigs on the wing
In The Court Of The Crimson King
The wall on which the prophets wrote
Is cracking at the seams.
Upon the instruments of death
The sunlight brightly gleams.
When every man is torn apart
With nightmares and with dreams,
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
As silence drowns the screams?
The leaded window opened
to move the dancing candle flame
And the first Moths of summer
Close To A World Below
The sweetness of death upon our lips
Far are we...From everlasting joy
Close are we...To a world below
|9||Faith No More|
Yes, hmm, now for the next question
Does emotional music have quite an effect on you?
The eye can out-stare neither the sun, nor death... if I sought God it was in delirium and in the delight of temptation.
Blinking Lights & Other Revelations
I knew true love and I knew passion
And the difference between the two
I have some regrets but if I had to do it all again
Well, it's something I'd like to do
Blood On The Tracks
They walked along by the old canal
A little confused, I remember well
And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin' bright.
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train
Moving with a simple twist of fate.
You look different every time you come
From the foam-crested brine
Your skin shining softly in the moonlight
Partly fish, partly porpoise, partly baby sperm whale
Am I yours? Are you mine to play with?
Odessey and Oracle
Do you remember summer days
Just after summer rain
When all the air was damp and warm
In the green of country lanes?
And the breeze would touch your hair
Kiss your face and make you care
About your world
Take a look you may see me coming through
For I am the parasite who travels two by two
