    Man, I didn't realize there were so many songs whose lyrics I really liked in this thread! Weird! I love the lyrics of "Mad World," too.

    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I'm dying
    Are the best I've ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It's a very, very
    Mad World
    Mad world
    [...]
    Went to school and I was very nervous
    No one knew me, no one knew me
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love

    Wait a minute... this is a lyrics thread, and no one has posted Sondheim?! No more, I say! ...and that's the song that plays in my head at least once a week. (the italicized lyric loops in my head far more often)

    NO MORE

    No more questions,
    Please.
    No more tests.
    Comes the day you say, "What for?"
    Please- no more.

    MYSTERIOUS MAN
    They disappoint,
    They disappear,
    They die but they don't...

    BAKER
    What?

    MYSTERIOUS MAN
    They disappoint
    In turn, I fear.
    Forgive, though, they won't...

    BAKER
    No more riddles.
    No more jests.
    No more curses you can't undo,
    Left by fathers you never knew.
    No more quests.

    No more feelings.
    Time to shut the door.
    Just- no more.


    MYSTERIOUS MAN
    Running away- let's do it,
    Free from the ties that bind.
    No more depair
    Or burdens to bear
    Out there in the yonder.

    Running away- go to it.
    Where did you have in mind?
    Have to take care:
    Unless there's a "where,"
    You'll only be wandering blind.
    Just more questions.
    Different kind.

    Where are we to go?
    Where are we ever to go?

    Running away- we'll do it.
    Why sit around, resigned?
    Trouble is, son,
    The farther you run,
    The more you feel undefined
    For what you've left undone
    And, more, what you've left behind.

    We disappoint,
    We leave a mess,
    We die but we don't...

    BAKER
    We disappoint
    In turn, I guess.
    Forget, though, we won't...

    BOTH
    Like father, like son.

    BAKER
    No more giants
    Waging war.
    Can't we just pursue out lives
    With out children and our wives?
    'Till that happy day arrives,
    How do you ignore
    All the witches,
    All the curses,
    All the wolves, all the lies,
    The false hopes, the goodbyes,
    The reverses,
    All the wondering what even worse is
    Still in store?

    All the children...
    All the giants...

    No more.

    The Kinks -- Strangers

    Where are you going I don't mind
    I've killed my world and I've killed my time
    So where do I go, what do I see?
    I see many people coming after me
    So where are you going to I don't mind
    If I live too long I'm afraid I'll die
    So I will follow you wherever you go
    If your offered hand is still open to me

    Strangers on this road we are on
    We are not two we are one

    So you've been where I've just come
    From the land that brings losers on
    So we will share this road we walk
    And mind our mouths and beware our talk
    'Till peace we find, tell you what I'll do
    All the things I own I will share with you
    If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
    We'll take what we want and give the rest away

    Strangers on this road we are on
    We are not two we are one

    Holy man and holy priest
    This love of life makes me weak at my knees
    And when we get there make your play
    'Cos soon I feel you're gonna carry us away
    In a promised lie you made us believe
    For many men there is so much grief
    And my mind is proud but it aches with rage
    And if I live too long I'm afraid I'll die

    Strangers on this road we are on
    We are not two we are one
    Strangers on this road we are on
    We are not two we are one

    I love the way Devin writes his lyrics. They're are so... different.

    Devin Townsend - The Death Of Music

    Question...
    Leapt like dog from man...
    Terminate high thinking...
    Known in your prophecy...

    Sun... Son...
    Sun it shifts, and brittleness subsides
    To sleep... sleep away

    One comes, the rain will always be
    And things I am
    Are things that should not be
    They laughed at me but we never bothered

    My friends and I
    There were no others

    Now it comes...
    Bolt across the blue...
    Shadows dance over the land...
    Walls high, water deep
    Brick and steel gathering speed
    Guess it's just a feeling
    Guess it's just a feeling...

    Rain may come
    The rain may never be
    In things you are
    Are things I need to be
    My friends were there but they never bothered

    Now there's you and I an
    There are no others

    It's like when death becomes musical
    It's musical
    It's like a death becomes musical
    Musical

    And it comes
    To make sure that he will never rise
    And the groans from the bellies
    Have never cried this hard
    And the eyes of the wicked ones
    Have never been full of dust
    In the middle of the sea it waits...
    Closer...

    Home, nor anywhere on Earth on that final day will anyone be apart
    ...one...schooled...together...
    Towards the sea...
    And we may drown, fly, fall from faith
    ...but the pain won't be realized
    Because the emotions will hit as god should
    And the mountains will offer no shelter
    And the clouds will be no cover
    No matter where we run...

    Don't die on me
    Don't go away
    When I need you here
    In my need

    The rain will come
    The rain will always be
    In things I am
    Are things that have to be
    My friends have come and I never bothered

    Myself and I
    There is no other

    It's like a death becomes musical
    It's musical
    _______________________________________________

    I love this song. It's so beautiful...

    Oh, how could I forget this one?

    Devin Townsend - Dynamics

    Winter hides the dead
    Just like summer ends too soon
    Springing forth the new knowing
    Autumn is the tomb

    And I'll wait for you
    'Cause it's waiting for you
    Living hides the dead just like
    Suns and earth and moon
    Springing forth the new knowing
    Flowers need to bloom

    And I'll wait for you
    'Cause it's waiting for you
    Unsure? Well, here's help with the wait
    The heavens move and the earth will quake
    And now god has failed as a metaphor
    There's only awe forever more

    Life is all dynamics
    Life is all... dynamics
    There's life in all dynamics

    Life is all dynamic

    Unsure? Well, here's help with the weight
    There's only "god" for "heaven's" sake
    There's only one key to unlock the door
    You must get by the metaphor
    (God help our mother... love one another!)

    Really, really, really good.

    I said please don't slow me down
    If I'm going too fast
    You're in a strange part of our town...

    Yeah, the night's not over
    You're not trying hard enough,
    Our lives are changing lanes
    You ran me off the road,
    The wait is over
    I'm now taking over,
    You're no longer laughing
    I'm not drowning fast enough.

    Now every time that I look at myself
    "I thought I told you
    this world is not for you"

    Here's part of one that I have a serious love-hate relationship with... As the thread title says, it won't leave me alone, but it may have scarred me.


    "Fitter, happier, more productive,
    comfortable,
    not drinking too much,
    regular exercise at the gym
    (3 days a week),
    getting on better with your associate employee contemporaries,
    at ease,
    eating well
    (no more microwave dinners and saturated fats),
    a patient better driver,
    a safer car
    (baby smiling in back seat),
    sleeping well
    (no bad dreams),
    no paranoia,
    careful to all animals
    (never washing spiders down the plughole),
    keep in contact with old friends
    (enjoy a drink now and then),
    will frequently check credit at
    (moral) bank (hole in the wall),
    favors for favors,
    fond but not in love,
    charity standing orders,
    on Sundays ring road supermarket
    (no killing moths or putting boiling water on the ants),
    car wash
    (also on Sundays),
    no longer afraid of the dark or midday shadows
    nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate,
    nothing so childish - at a better pace,
    slower and more calculated,
    no chance of escape,
    now self-employed,
    concerned (but powerless),
    an empowered and informed member of society
    (pragmatism not idealism),
    will not cry in public,
    less chance of illness..."

    Everybody talks about a new world in the morning.
    A new world in the morning so they say.
    I, myself don't talk about a new world in the morning.
    A new world in the morning, that's today.
    And I can feel a new tomorrow comin' on.
    And I don't know why I have to make a song.
    Everybody talks a bout a new world in the morning.
    New world in the morning takes so long.

    I met a man who had a dream he had since he was twenty.
    I met that man when he was eighty-one.
    He said too many people just stand and wait up til the mornin',
    Don't they know tomorrow never comes.
    And he would feel a new tomorrow coming on.
    And when he'd smile his eyes would twinkle up in thought.

    Everybody talks about a new world in the morning.
    New world in the morning never comes.
    And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on.
    And I don't know why I have to make a song.
    Everybody talks about a new world in the morning.
    New world in the morning takes so long.
