I haven't seen a thread for this, so I figured out I could make one.
Post your favorite lyrics! Feel free to explain why they're meaningful to you.


Usually I tend to focus more on the music rather than the lyrics, however for the album "England made me" by black box recorder it was different. Some lines really hit me, here I'll mention a few that come to mind
In any case I really recommend to listen to the song to really feel the lyrics
>I trapped a spider underneath a glass
>I kept it for a week, to see how long it'd last
>He stared right back at me, he fought that he could win
>We play a waiting game, he fought that I'd give in
>England made me
Something about this really touches me. With the music this becomes a very memorable and strong image. I'm afraid I struggle to describe it further... The second verse and third verse are alright, but not as hard hitting to me personally
>Life is unfair
>Kill yourself, or get over it
Well! This is obviously pretty provocative, but I think the message behind it is positive: one should learn to accept life and how things are rather than keep dwelling on the negatives. Actually this idea (specifically, and more in general) is very meaningful to me, because often I get stuck and can't "get over it". Yet not taking the decision between living and leaving only brings misery. I think this line is very bold and effective, it's the one that caught my attention to this album and I'm happy it did because I really like it
>If I set fire to you now
>Would you even make a sound
>Feeling rotten to the core
>And I don't need you anymore
Also the first verse is good. And a few other lines too. I really love this song, can you tell?
I really like the "If I set fire to you now" line. Sometimes I feel robotic, apathic. And this is line is like, if I was on fire, would I even make a sound? Now, of course I take it metaphorically: I understand that in the real world I'd be screaming and shouting and rolling on the floor if I caught fire. But, emotionally, it somewhat makes sense
Regarding the second quote (and the first verse), in full honesty I like it just for the atmosphere it creates together with the music, in a similar way to the spider lyric. That one is cooler though
And that's it. I could post more lyrics I like form other music some other time if anybody cares
Anyway, OP, now it's your turn


I like black box recorder a lot. The first song you linked it's beautiful, truly. And, alright, I'll link some songs.

>Haven't had a dream in a long time
>See, the life I've had
>Can make a good man bad
>So for once in my life
>Let me get what I want
>Lord knows, it would be the first time

>Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette
>I'm a lifeless face that you'll soon forget
>And my eyes are damp from the words you left
>Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest

>There's no way out for cowards
>Suicide is embarrassing
>The whole town at your door
>I just needed more money
>More time, more love
>All my desires are so poorly drawn now
>In my wildest sexual dreams I dream
>That I'm watching porn, but there's too much sunlight
>Shining on my laptop monitor
>So I can't see anything with any amount of clarity
