Ahh good idea, this was tried before but it got boring because people just posted entire lyrics.

Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made;
Were every blade of grass on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade.
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.

:yawn: Figures Graham would mistake songs for psalms :p
psalm ( P ) Pronunciation Key (säm)
n.
1. A sacred song; a hymn.
2. Psalms (used with a sing. verb)

tr.v. psalmed, psalm·ing, psalms

To sing of or celebrate in psalms.

:p

Now let's try that again:

psalm ( P ) Pronunciation Key (säm)
n.
1. A sacred song; a hymn.
2. Psalms (used with a sing. verb)

tr.v. psalmed, psalm·ing, psalms

To sing of or celebrate in psalms.

Just how you look at it :p

Had it been the same thing as what one would entitle as 'ordinary songs' then that's what it would have said.

Instead, the dictionary does all it can to describe it DIFFERENTLY. "Sacred song" instead of just 'song' and "Hymn".

Face it, its not exactly mainstream :p:D

Pah, like I want it to be. 99% of mainstream music is a joke. Anyway I was just doing what the thread asked me to

Slipknot - Wait & Bleed

My eyes are red and gold, the hair is standing straight up
This is not the way I pictured me
I CAN'T CONTROL MY SHAKES!
How the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong...
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this
Is it a dream or a memory?

Blink 182 - Adam's Song

I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside

Here is another one of my favs it tells a great story its called never again by nickelback..

He is drunk again, its time to fight, she must have done something wrong tonight, the living room becomes a boxing ring, she knows its time to run when she sees him clenching those hands.. she is just a woman...never again.

Probably not my favorite lyric, but it just came to mind -- and it's so simple and yet set the stage for so many punk lyrics to follow.

The Sex Pistols':

"I don't know what I want, but I know how to get it."

I love you for what i am not
I do not want what i have got

I don't want the world to see me cos I don't think that they's understand, when everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am.

The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn across a blue blanket, I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless, and in this moment I am happy, happy.
