Rough list, I hardly find the time to get on the site these days. But these are personal favorites in the category of lyrics. Sweet.
Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't
We admit to the truth, we are the best at what we do. And these are the words you wish you wrote down. This is the way you wish your voice sounds.
And there's kids playing guns in the street. And one's pointing his tree branch at me. So I put my hands up, said enough is enough. If you walk away, I'll walk away. And he shot me dead.
From the Hips
From our hips we don't give a shit. It just feels good, and that's no sin. It's the only way to feel alive.
My (Fucking) Deerhunter
I'll have his wife just to display my power. I'll drink his win and spit it right back out. Somewhere I grew legs...
I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal. When will we learn? When will we change? Just in time to see it all come down.
Walking side by side with death. The devil mocks their every step. Snow drive's by the foot that's slow. The dogs of doom are howling more.
Maybe there's a god above, but all I've ever learned from love is how to shoot somebody who outdrew you. And it's not a cry that you hear at night. It's not somebody who's seen the light. It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.
A Victim, A Target
How could I justify this? I can make anything alright. But what do you know about sacrifice?
Bury Me With It
The point was fast but it was too blunt to miss. Life handed us a paycheck, we said "We worked harder than this!"
|10||Nine Inch Nails|
Devil's speak of the way in which she'll manifest. Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress. Need to contaminate, to alleviate this loneliness. I now know the depths I reach are limitless.
|11||I'm Looking Forward to Joining You, Finally|
Thought he had it all before they called his bluff. Found at that his skin just wasn't thick enough. Wanted to go back to how it was before. Thought he lost everything, then he lost a whole lot more. A fool's devotion swallowed up in empty space. The tears of regret frozen to the side of his face.
Goodbye Blue Sky
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the promise of a brave new world unfolded in the clear blue sky?
Climbing Up the Walls
So lock the kids up safe tonight. Put the eyes in the cupboard. I've got the smell of a local man who's got the loneliest feeling.
|14||How to Disappear Completely|
Strobe lights and blown speakers. Fireworks and hurricanes. I'm not here, this isn't happening.
Yellow Cat (Slash) Red Cat
Lou is bugged and shot up with drugs. He sweats this bird he hardly knows. All that he wants is to see someone he respects without their clothes. So like some hybrid mother slash lover she?d soothe and heal his wounds. And kiss those dying ears so softly that the reaper stops to swoon. Oh, please.
Only in Dreams
You walk up to her, ask her to dance. She says, "Hey baby, I just might take the chance." You say "It's a good thing that you float in the air. That way there's no way I will crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces."
