"The town bishop's an extortionist, and he don't even know that you exist. Stand still when it's die or die, you'd better run for your fucking life!"-Letterbomb (I just love how it's sung and the words themselves are awesome.)

"Seig heil to the president Gasman, bombs away is your punishment! Pulverize the Eiffel Towers who criticize your government! Bang, bang goes the broken glass, man. Kill all the fags that don't agree! Trials by fire, setting fires, it's not a way that's meant for me! Just because we're outlaws, yeah!"- Holiday (Just fucking badass)

"I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies, this is the dawning of the rest of our lives"- Holiday (I fucking love Holiday if you didn't figure that out)

There are so many great lyrics but the first thing that came into my mind was:

No culture's worth a stream of piss
Or a bullet in my face
To hell with unity
Separation's gonna kill us all

Green Day's lyrics mean so much to me. Sometimes I get really emotional just from reading the lyrics. Other great lyrics:

The world owes me so fuck you.

Is there any cure for this disease someone called love.

My own worst friend, my own closest enemy.

Looking out of my windo for someone who's passing by, no one knows I'm locked in here and all I do is cry.

It's not over till your underground.

I don't want to stop but I guess that was already too much ;)

I don't want to live in the modern world

And

I am a nation without bureaucratic ties

my favs:

"We are all born in a world of doubt,

but there's no doubt

i figured out, i love you."

"infatuation touches me just when i thought that it would end"

"home is where your heart is, but what a shame 'cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same"

Fuck it, I'm posting up the whole lyrics to "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?":

"A thought burst in my head and I need to tell you

It's news that I for thought
Was it just a dream that happened long ago?
I think that I just forgot
Well it hasn't been the first time
And it sure does drive me mad
There's a boy who fogs his world and now he's getting lazy
There's no motivation and frustration makes him crazy
He makes a plan to take a stand but always ends up sitting.
Someone help him up or he's gonna end up quitting
I shuffle through my mind
To see if I can find
The words I left behind
Was it just a dream that happened long ago?
Oh well...
Never mind.
Well it hasn't been the first time
And it sure does drive me mad"
This is among the only songs that I'll ever tell myself "Damn, I wish I wrote that song." It's almost as if the song was written for me because I could relate to it in so many ways and the way I interpret the lyrics... it just speaks to me so loud and clear. So many thoughts burst in my head that I need to tell a certain someone. And yes, most of it just feels like a dream that happened long ago and I don't want to forget. It sure does drive me mad sometimes...
Edit: I know it couldn't be a whole verse. xD

Well I toss and turn all night,
Thinking of your ways of affection,
But to find that it's not different at all.
Well I throw away my past mistakes and contemplate my future,
That's when I say: what the hey

Would we last forever?
You and I together hand in hand
We run away (far away)
I'm here for nasty weather
But I'll take whatever you can give
That comes my way

I genuinely can't pick between like 20 lyrics...and they're all great for different reasons.

There seems to be at least one great lyric for every emotion...

Your father's rage and your mother's love

Is that even possible, have just one favorite Lyric?! I don't think so but this are my favorites, or at least those i can remember :P

My anger dwells inside of me/i'm taking it all out on you and all the shit you put me through- Having A Blast

It's something unpredictable but in the end is right i hope you have the time of your life- Good Riddance

'Cause i love you's not enough i'm lost for words- Redundant

If you live with me i'll die for you and this compromise- Church On Sunday

Waiting for a sign to smash the silence with the brick of self control- She

I've been waiting a long time for this moment to come i'm destined for anything at all - Waiting

Everytime i'm falling down you take the reprecussions- Do Da Da

And in the darkest night if my memory serves me right, i'll never turn back time, forgetting you but not the time- Whatsername

I'm a mess and you're a work of art- Fell For You :wub:

She gave up on Jesus for living on venus- Wild One

Hello stranger, i'm a disaster, this brutal love- Brutal Love

you're not around and i'm a complete disaster, i'm missing you- Missing You

I don't wanna be an imbecil, but jesus made that way- Sex, drugs and violence

'Cause the first day you came into my life, my time ticks around you- When It's Time :wub:

Just to mention a few :P

Hard to pick just one...

'Let's nuke the bridge we torched 2000 times before,

This time we'll blast it all to hell,

I've had this burning in my guts now for so long,

My belly's achin' now to say'

No one's picked this yet so im gonna put it as mine, i know its a whole chorus but i couldn't pick between the 1st and 2nd half of it of which was better.

serious people are funny to me, funny people seem so serious.

for what it's worth, it was worth all the while.

radioactive and primal, nuclear and so delightful.

we've come so far we've been so wasted, it's written all over our faces.

what's the difference between you and me? i do what i want, and you do what you're told.

i think that's it for now, haha.
