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.
1The Antlers

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
2The 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
3Frank Turner
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.
4Leonard Cohen
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.
5Pink Floyd

If you didn't care What happened to me And I didn't care For you We would Zig-zag our way Through the boredom and pain Occasionally glancing up through the rain Wondering which of the buggers to blame And watching For pigs on the wing
6King Crimson
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?
7Jethro Tull
Heavy Horses

The leaded window opened to move the dancing candle flame And the first Moths of summer suicidal came.
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
9Faith No More
Angel Dust

Yes, hmm, now for the next question Does emotional music have quite an effect on you?
10Deathspell Omega

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
12Bob Dylan
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.
13Robert Wyatt
Rock Bottom

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?
14The Zombies
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
15Nick Drake
Pink Moon

Take a look you may see me coming through For I am the parasite who travels two by two
