Opinion on profound lyrics.
And in the end,
The love you take,
Is equal to the love,
"The End" The Beatles
When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.
Politicians hide themselves away.
They only started the war.
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor, yeah.
Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Treat others how you would like to be treated.
I am the everything, the all knowing
The omnipotent one
I watch the fields, i do not feel
I circumnavigate everyone
I am the scarecrow, alone and disconnected
You stare right past me undetected
I am only here when you expect it
Nowhere man, i live invisible
And i feel a sadness undescribeable
i hang here motionless holding a bible
I died and became apathy
Then married vacancy
Then moved my children to the tundra of complacency
I do not exist in your world
I've burned bridges, i've cut the life line
No all i have left is my mind
Which judges all of you
Analyizes your dumb philosophies
In wonderment of how you all have ruined your ecology
But you do not hear for i am to you only but the nothingness
And i can't understand why i'm the only one that feels like this
Its all piss, I flee
Out of all the people that have left me
The one i miss most, is me
I am the scarecrow, and i'm so alone
Scarecrow - Rehab

Falling in love is like learning to play the guitar; first you learn to follow the rules, then you learn to play with your heart.

The willows will hang their heads
I'll live my life in sorrow
Since mother and daddy are dead. Stanley Brothers

And, although not a lyric, I always liked this little poem.
Tiger got to hunt
Bird got to fly
Man got to ask himself why why why
Tiger got to rest
Bird got to land
Man got to tell himself he understand

I've always loved...
She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
"I thought you'd never say hello," she said
"You look like the silent type."
Then she opened up a book of poems
And handed it to me
Written by an Italian poet
From the thirteenth century.
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burnin' coal
Pourin' off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you,
Tangled up in blue.
Now you're never too old... old... old...
to rock 'n roll... oll... oll
If you are too young to die!
I not the average girl from your video

No matter what I'm wearing I will always be me----India Arie
