    What are your favorite lyrics by type? Lol.

    So if you care to find me, look to the western skies. As someone told me lately,
    everyone deserves a chance to fly. And If I'm flying solo, at least I'm flying free
    to those who ground me, take a message back from me! Tell them how I am
    defying gravity, I'm flying high defying gravity, and soon I'll match them in renown. And nobody in all of oz, no wizard that there is or was- is ever gonna
    bring me down!

    Ha.... Elphaba's no ENTJ, though...

    "One day we will die
    and our ashes will fly
    from the aeroplane over the sea,
    But for now we are young,
    let us lay in the sun
    and count every beautiful thing we can see
    Love to be
    How strange it is to be anything at alllllll"

    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments. He concluded that There is more than one way of doing good science.
    It was Watsons form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA. It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    No one but the writer truly knows the lyerics, but I did my best to write them down. My username there is "ObeyBunny," same as it is here.

    I don't really have favourite lyrics it all depends on the mood I'm in on a particular day. But recently I've been liking the lyrics of Tom's Diner by Suzanna Vega which I feel describes the INTP personality quite well:

    I am sitting
    In the morning
    At the diner
    On the corner

    I am waiting
    At the counter
    For the man
    To pour the coffee

    And he fills it
    Only halfway
    And before
    I even argue

    He is looking
    Out the window
    At somebody
    Coming in

    "It is always
    Nice to see you"
    Says the man
    Behind the counter

    To the woman
    Who has come in
    She is shaking
    Her umbrella

    And I look
    The other way
    As they are kissing
    Their hellos

    I'm pretending
    Not to see them
    Instead
    I pour the milk

    I open
    Up the paper
    There's a story
    Of an actor

    Who had died
    While he was drinking
    It was no one
    I had heard of

    And I'm turning
    To the horoscope
    And looking
    For the funnies

    When I'm feeling
    Someone watching me
    And so
    I raise my head

    There's a woman
    On the outside
    Looking inside
    Does she see me?

    No she does not
    Really see me
    Cause she sees
    Her own reflection

    And I'm trying
    Not to notice
    That she's hitching
    Up her skirt

    And while she's
    Straightening her stockings
    Her hair
    Has gotten wet

    Oh, this rain
    It will continue
    Through the morning
    As I'm listening

    To the bells
    Of the cathedral
    I am thinking
    Of your voice...

    And of the midnight picnic
    Once upon a time
    Before the rain began...

    I finish up my coffee
    It's time to catch the train
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."

    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"

    -Tommy Tiernan, Irish comedian.

    Default Talking Shit About a Pretty Sunset

    Oh noose tied myself in, tied myself too tight
    Looking kind of anxious in your cross armed stance
    Like a bad tempered prom queen at a homecoming dance
    And I claim I’m not excited with my life any more
    So I blame this town, this job, these friends
    The truth is it’s myself
    And I’m trying to understand myself
    And pinpoint where I am
    By the time I get things figured out
    I’ve change the whole damn plan
    Oh noose tied myself in, tied myself too tight
    Talking shit about a pretty sunset
    Blanketing opinions that I’ll probably reget soon
    I’ve changed my mind so much I cant even trust it
    My mind changed me so much I cant even trust myself

    The current theme song for my obligatory twenty-something existential crisis.

    "Everyone who believes in telekinesis, raise my hand."

    Marillion - Misplaced Childhood

    (esp like the bold bits)

    brief encounter

    A spider wanders aimlessly within the warmth of a shadow
    Not the regal creature of border caves
    But the poor, misguided, directionless familiar of some obscure scottish poet

    The mist crawls from the canal
    Like some primordial phantom of romance
    To curl, under a cascade of neon pollen
    While I sit tied to the phone like an expectant father
    Your carnation will rot in a vase

    B) lost weekend

    A train sleeps in a siding
    The driver guzzles another can of lager, lager
    To wash away the memories of a friday night down at the club

    She was a wallflower at sixteen, she’ll be a wallflower at thirty four
    Her mother called her beautiful
    Her daddy said, a whore

    C) blue angel

    The sky was Bible black in lyon, when I met the magdalene
    She was paralyzed in a streetlight
    She refused to give her name

    And a ring of violet bruises
    They were pinned upon her arm
    Two hundred francs for sanctuary and she led me by the hand
    To a room of dancing shadows where all the heartache disappears
    And from glowing tongues of candles I heard her whisper in my ear
    ’j’entend ton coeur’, ’j’entend ton coeur’
    I can hear your heart, I can hear your heart, I can hear your heart
    Hear your heart
    I hear your heart

    I met a girl who sang the blues
    And I asked her for some happy news,
    But she just smiled and turned away.
    I went down to the sacred store
    Where I'd heard the music years before,
    But the man there said the music wouldn't play.

    And in the streets: the children screamed,
    The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed.
    But not a word was spoken;
    The church bells all were broken.
    And the three men I admire most:
    The father, son, and the holy ghost,
    They caught the last train for the coast
    The day the music died.

    Don't really have any favorite songs, but I like lyrics of this one .
    I monster- Who is she


    Oh who is she
    A misty memory
    A haunting face
    Is she a lost embrace?

    Am I in love with just a theme
    Or is Aisha just dream
    A mystery
    Oh who is she

    Oh who is she
    A misty memory
    A haunting face
    Is she a lost embrace?

    I call her name
    Across an endless place
    She'll answer me
    Wherever she may be

    Oh who is she
    A misty memory
    A haunting face
    Is she a lost embrace?

    Somewhere across the sea of time
    A love immortal, such as mine
    Will come to me
    Eternally
    Immortal she
    Return to me

    I don't have an all-time favorite, but lately I have come across the following that didn't quite make it into the 6th Harry Potter movie. I like this:

    Carry my soul into the night
    May the stars guide my way.
    I glory in the sight
    As darkness takes the day.

    Ferte in noctem animam meam
    Illustre stelle viam meam.
    Aspectu illo glorior
    Dum capit nox diem.

    Cantate vitae canticum
    Sine dolore acte
    Dicite eis quos amabam
    Numquam obliviscar

    Sing a song, a song of life
    Made without regret
    Tell the ones, the ones I loved
    I never will forget
    Never will forget.

    One tin soldier:

    Listen, children, to a story
    That was written long ago,
    'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
    And the valley-folk below.

    On the mountain was a treasure
    Buried deep beneath the stone,
    And the valley-people swore
    They'd have it for their very own.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after....
    One tin soldier rides away.

    So the people of the valley
    Sent a message up the hill,
    Asking for the buried treasure,
    Tons of gold for which they'd kill.

    Came an answer from the kingdom,
    "With our brothers we will share
    All the secrets of our mountain,
    All the riches buried there."

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after....
    One tin soldier rides away.

    Now the valley cried with anger,
    "Mount your horses! Draw your sword!"
    And they killed the mountain-people,
    So they won their just reward.

    Now they stood beside the treasure,
    On the mountain, dark and red.
    Turned the stone and looked beneath it...
    "Peace on Earth" was all it said.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after....
    One tin soldier rides away.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after....
    One tin soldier rides away.
