"You can fool yourself, I promise it will help, so every single day I just wanna hear you sayin'
I'm so lucky lucky, I'm so lucky lucky, I'm so lovely lovely, I'm so lovely lovely,
You can fool yourself, I promise it will help, so every single day I just wanna hear you say it."

"Do you know what it takes to be a hero? When you lost, a piece of love, a piece of you. Do you have what it takes to beat the fear thats in your heart, to grow up strong, and undo wrong. To grow up strong, and undo wrong" Hero by All-Insane Kids
"Would you dance, if I asked you to dance?
Would you run, and never look back?
Would you cry, if you saw me crying?
And would you save my soul, tonight?

Would you tremble, if I touched your lips?
Would you laugh? Oh please tell me this
Now would you die, for the one you love?
Hold me in your arms, tonight

I can be your hero, baby
I can kiss away the pain
I will stand by you forever
You can take my breath away"

"It starts with one thing I don't know why It doesn't even matter how hard you try keep that in mind I designed this rhyme to explain in due time all I know time is a valuable thing watch it fly by as the pendulum swings. Watch it count down to the end of the day The clock ticks life away."

My favourite line right now is probably from "Reckless Serenade" by Arctic Monkeys - "Topless models, doing semaphore, wave their flags as she walks by and get ignored"

My favourite verse of all time would be from "Let's Not **** Ourselves (To Love and to Be Loved)" by Bright Eyes -

"Well I awoke in relief, my sheets and tubes were all tangled
Weak from whiskey and pills in a Chicago hospital
And my father was there, in a chair by the window
Staring so far away
I tried talking, just whispered, "So sorry, so selfish"
He stopped me and said, "Child, I love you regardless
There's nothing you could do that would ever change this
I'm not angry, it happens
But you just can't do it again""

My overall favourite lyrics of all time are in the Dismemberment Plan song "Back and Forth":

"There’s a kind of music that reminds me of you
It’s all clear expensive drinks and shiny shirts
And the click of heels as they descend from the taxi like the first foot on the moon
Oh and it glows with ache
And if it hits me right on it’s almost too much to take
And it’s got right angle razor thin lines
That curve and swerve like perfect sines
As we dress to the nines
In an attempt to leave it all behind
In a search of the moment between the seconds
Where everything is just fine
That silver thread embedded deep within our spines
And I used to be kind of weird about this
A fear of dependence on a guilty gilt-edged
hedged transcendence that makes us liars
And tense with fear of looking down and seeing that nothing really suspends us
But it was never just another Saturday night
Not with you in attendance
So throw your hands in the air
And wave them like you just don’t care
It’s on a whim; it’s on a dare
To shrug away what we can’t bear
And we’re going back and forth
And back and forth and back and forth and back
We’re going back and forth
And back and forth and back and forth and back

So it’s a deep blue see-through membrane
That protects us, it connects us
A pulsing cellophane
Party-train skein that helps us and envelopes And keeps us locked inside
Forever and ever along for the ride
And we’re moving through a phosphorescent gel a semi-solid self-lit ocean
And it’s a funny notion, isn’t it?
Yeah, but I’m kinda digging it
And it’s rigged and isn’t nearly so big
And it speaks only of its own perpetual near miss
Like the uncertain memory of a stranger’s mistaken kiss
As faces slide by in glowing shadows
Like snowbound ghosts that go up and down
In epileptic shivers and negative radioactive slivers
In a landscape of endless dull glitter
And a taste in my mouth so sweet, yet so bitter
And we exhaust ourselves trying to get there
Somebody scream "all right"
We’ll try to fill the echoless night
So fasten up and hold tight
We can’t give up without a fight
And we’re going back and forth
And back and forth and back and forth and back
We’re going back and forth
And back and forth and back and forth and back

So in the end, whatever, we die, we dissolve
Equations unbalanced, riddles unsolved
And we were never connected or involved
Except for the intersections and crazy mathematics
With no time and no space and no schedule and no place
And they pass right through us without a trace
And sometimes that music drifts through my car
On a spring night when anything is possible
And I close my eyes and I nod my head
And I wonder how you been
And I count to a hundred and ten
Because you’ll always be my hero even if I never see you again"

It really needs to be heard IMO to realise how skilful a singer he is as well to work these fantastic lyrics in: Back and Forth - Dismemberment Plan - YouTube

"Held within the Pleasure Dome.
Decreed by Kublai Khan.
To taste my bitter triumph.
As a mad immortal man.
Nevermore, shall I return.
Escape these caves of ice!
For I have dined on honeydew.
And drunk the milk of paradise.
Or is it paradise?!"

I can't really choose one line, but the entire song in general has good lyrics.

When Things Explode - UNKLE featuring Ian Astbury (click on the first "listen" to listen to the song)

Your skull froze little lives
In shadows where you hide
A life that was designed
You've been cheated oh so blind

You laid it on the line
These twisted words of time
And how your spirit shines
I wish that you were mine

Yeah lately I know that I've been crawling
I know that I've been falling
Into your dream

Imagine no more tears
Dissolving all your feras
With tooth and claw we fight
Into this endless night

Yeah lately I know that I've been crawling
I know that I've been falling
Into your dream

I saw my tears in your eyes
You saw your fears in mine
We watched it burn together
Watched it burn together

Burn yeah, burn watched it burn burn yeah burn
Watched it burn, burn watched it burn
Watched it burn, burn watched it burn

All is forgiven

"We all gonna die, but I'm not gonna fry.
Even though most never try;
I'm not gonna let this pass me bye, no"

Pass me By - Insane Clown Posse

"I'd catch a grenade for you.
Throw my hand on a blade for you.
I'd jump in front of a train for you.
You know I'd do anything for you.

I would go through all this pain;
Take a bullet straight through my brain.
Yes, I would die for you, baby;
But you won't do the same."

For a minute there, I lost myself.........

I'm not sure which song lyrics would be my favorite (likely something by Tool or Radiohead...), so I just quoted my favorite song. :P
