Killer Lines

Not a favourite lines ever list cos fuck that effort, just some gr8 lines that have been popping my head recently, loosely ranked
1Eyedea & Abilities
By the Throat

Empathy is the poor man's cocaine / and love is just a chemical by any other name
Translating the Name

I have your voice on tape in a Southern accent screaming at me
3Andrew Jackson Jihad
Christmas Island

Shoot him again, cos I can see his soul dancing
4Bob Dylan
Another Side of Bob Dylan

Ah but I was so much older then / I'm younger than that now
5Modest Mouse
The Lonesome Crowded West

So I'll go to college and I'll learn some big words / and I'll talk real loud, goddamn right I'll be heard / you'll remember that guy who said all those big words he musta learned in college
6The Smiths
Meat Is Murder

It was dark as I drove the point home / and on cold leather seats, well it suddenly struck me / I just might die with a smile on my face after all
War All the Time

One day we'll be complete like modern saints / baptise our kids in gasoline / and hang our doubts up in cathedrals so that they turn to faith in the coloured sunlight
8The National

You were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges like I do now
9Elliott Smith
Roman Candle

They never get uptight when a moth gets crushed / unless a lightbulb really loved him very much
10Jimmy Eat World

Lead my skeptic sight / to the table and the light
Brother, Sister

And if she comes circling back, we'll end where we begun / like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one
12Belle and Sebastian
The Boy With the Arab Strap

You're constantly updating your hit parade of your ten biggest wanks
13Modest Mouse
Building Nothing Out of Something

I'm the same as I was when I was six years old / and oh my god I feel so damn old, I don't really feel anything
14Kendrick Lamar

When I lie on my back and look at the ceiling, it's so appealing to pray / I wonder if I'm just a villain dealing my morals away / some people look at my face, then tell me don't worry bout it / I give 'em back they deposit, no money, just total silence
15Leonard Cohen
Various Positions

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born / dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
16Pink Floyd
The Final Cut

Ashes and diamonds / foe and friend / we were all equal in the end
17The Sound of Animals Fighting
Lover, the Lord Has Left Us...

Flesh is heretic / my body is a witch / I am burning it
18Crowded House

We are the mirrors / are the mirrors of each other in a lifetime of suspicion / cleansed in a moment of recognition

Wish your drinking would hurry and kill you / sympathy's better than having to tell you the truth

Now that you have been disarmed / we will cross over unharmed
Achtung Baby

Did you come here for forgiveness? / did you come to raise the dead? / did you come here to play Jesus / to the lepers in your head?
22The Weakerthans
Reunion Tour

But I can't remember the sound you found for me

With eyes unimpressed, you're stealing the conversations
24Manic Street Preachers
The Holy Bible

He's a boy / you want a girl so tear off his cock / tie his hair in bunches, fuck him, call him Rita if you want
25Alkaline Trio
Good Mourning

And I wanted you to know / it was you that we were thinking of, as we quietly died in the snow
26Tears for Fears
The Hurting

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad / the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
27Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

At midnight all the agents, and the superhuman crew / go out to round up everyone that knows more than they do (just because Watchmen)
28Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water

...and cut him 'til he cried out, in his anger and his shame / “I am leaving I am leaving but the fighter still remains”
29Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here

Did they get you to trade / your heroes for ghosts?
Out of Time

I skipped the part about love / it seemed so shallow, and low
31Have a Nice Life

Jesus Christ why is love so lonely
Modern Life Is Rubbish

Practice doesn't make perfect when it's interbreeding / speaking drivel can it be confused with heavy breathing?
33The National
High Violet

Lay me on the table put flowers in my mouth / and we can say that we invented a summer-lovin' torture party
34Third Eye Blind
Third Eye Blind

Every glamorous sunrise, throws the planets out of line / a star sign out of whack, a fradulent zodiac
35The Beatles
Abbey Road

And in the end the love you take / is equal to the love you make
36The Antlers

Well this is my house, so fuck your doubts and your cute battalion
37Manchester Orchestra
I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child

Cos formulas are for nothing / if I can barely get to sleep
38Pearl Jam

I know one day you'll have a beautiful life / I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky / but why, but why can't it be, can't it be mine?
39Jeff Buckley

It's never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter / It's never over, she's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
40The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

Let me get my hands / on your mammary glands

I switched my motto; instead of saying "fuck tomorrow" / that buck that bought a bottle could've struck the lotto (for my man Key)
42Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

And when we break, we'll wait for our miracle / God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life
43Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
Let Love In

There's a man in the theatre with girlish eyes / who's holding my childhood to ransom / on the screen there's a death, there's a rustle of cloth / and a sickly voice calling me handsome
44Elliott Smith
From a Basement on the Hill

Veins full of disappearing ink / vomiting in your kitchen sink
45Eyedea & Abilities
First Born

It's like reading a book where each words describe your thoughts / and in quotations, it reads whatever you say when you talk (2deep)
46Passenger (UK)
Wicked Man's Rest

You can say I'm mad, you can say I'm crazy / but I'm only as bad as the maker who made me
In Rainbows

You'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking
48Sufjan Stevens
Carrie and Lowell

There was blood on that blade / fuck me I'm falling apart
49The Wonder Years
Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing

Growing up means / watching my heroes turn human in front of me

My face has changed you know it's me / you know by the stillness in my eyes
