What are some of the song lyrics that have made an impression on you?

Asked by Only138 (4601 points ) June 15th, 2011

Ever hear a song, and some of the lyrics just kinda “grab” you and stick with you? If so, what are they?
One of my favorites are from Megadeth…..“What do you mean I ain’t kind? Just not your kind”.

“It was on the good ship venus
By christ you shoulda seen us
The figurehead was a whore in bed
And the mast was a mammoth penis”

I mean, that’s almost Shakespearian in it’s beauty ;¬}

“Who wouldn’t be the one you love? Who wouldn’t stand inside your love?” from Stand Inside Your Love by surprise Smashing Pumpkins
That’s just one line from the song, but I love that whole song. I think it’s a neat diversion from a normal love song; he sings about how much he wants to be the one that this woman should love rather than professing his own love outright.

“They will stop degrading us”
Uprising by Muse. I first heard it when everyone was outside of school looking at the newest vandelism on the wall. I’m sure the wall was thinking the same thing.

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

Well I’m upper upper class high society
God’s gift to ballroom notoriety
And I always fill my ballroom
The event is never small
The social pages say I’ve got
The biggest balls of all

I’ve got big balls
I’ve got big balls
They’re such big balls
And they’re dirty big balls
And he’s got big balls
And she’s got big balls
But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all

And my balls are always bouncing
My ballroom always full
And everybody cums and cums again
If your name is on the guest list
No one can take you higher
Everybody says I’ve got
Great balls of fire

I’ve got big balls
Oh I’ve got big balls
And they’re such big balls
Dirty big balls
And he’s got big balls
And she’s got big balls
But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all

Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they’re held for pleasure
They’re the balls that I like best
My balls are always bouncing
To the left and to the right
It’s my belief that my big balls
Should be held every night

We’ve got big balls
We’ve got big balls
We’ve got big balls
Dirty big balls
He’s got big balls
She’s got big balls
But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all

We’ve got big balls
We’ve got big balls

And I’m just itching to tell you about them
Oh we had such wonderful fun
Seafood cocktail, crabs, crayfish
But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all

Ball sucker
Ball sucker

We are the kings of wisdom, of fools as well, we are the gods too many, we are humble men. We who build great works just to bring them down, we who make our rules so we never fail.

Those lyrics from Joy (VNV Nation, one of my favourite groups ever) have stayed with me for years.

So don’t you fuck me around
Because I’ll shoot you down
I’m gonna drink, fight and fuck
And pushing my luck
All the time now

Maybe you’re the runner up
But the first one to lose the race
Almost only really counts in
Horseshoes and hand grenades – Green Day

Oh and of course, our super special song;

One two three, who should I kill? Every motherfucker runnin’ up the hill! One two three, what should I do? Get fucked up, and fuckup with you! :D

Now, the girls would turn the color of an avacado
When he would drive down the street in his El Dorado
Why, he was only 5’3; girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
Not in New York

Some people try to pick up girls get called an asshole
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
Why he could walk down your street, girls could not resist his stare
Subsequently, Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
Nope, Not around here
Not like you

We are all polylingual
But some of us pretend
There’s virtue in relying
On not trying to understand
We’re all citizens of the womb
Before we subdivide
Into sexes and shades
This side
That side
And I don’t need to tell you
What this is about
You just start on the inside
And work your way out
Undressing for the fan
Like it was a man
Wondering about all the things
That I’ll never understand
There are some things that you can’t know
Unless you’ve been there
But oh how far we could go
If we started to share

Man in the Mirror Michael Jackson.

I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference, Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My Favorite Winter Coat This Wind Is Blowin’ My Mind.
I See The Kids In The Street, With Not Enough To Eat Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See Their Needs A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top, And A One Man’s Soul
They Follow Each Other On The Wind Ya’ Know
‘Cause They Got Nowhere To Go.
That’s Why I Want You To Know

I’m Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change

I’ve Been A Victim Of A Selfish Kind Of Love
It’s Time That I Realize That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me, Pretending That They’re Not Alone?

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody’s Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
They Follow The Pattern Of The Wind, Ya’ See
Cause They Got No Place To Be
That’s Why I’m Starting With Me

I’m Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself And Then Make A Change

Cause a real man knows a real woman when he
sees her (when he sees her)
And a real woman knows a real man
Ain’t ‘fraid to please her (please her)
And a real woman knows a real man always
comes first (first)
And a real man just can’t deny
A woman’s worth (a woman’s worth)

Yes this is Alicia keys: A real woman.
But I have a lot of lyrics that give me big impacts! But this only one of them that has been recent since I just remember Alicia keys

Time by Pink Floyd

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but 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

If you look in the mirror it’s your father’s face
And the thin grin, the thin grin, the thin grin
It’s Santa Claus pulling up snow pees
Everyday in the morning when you get up and you crawl out of bed
