Need to keep the sub forum badge alive.

I'm typically not much for lyrics, as long as they sound cool all together, I'm not really into exactly what they say most of the time.  There are a few exceptions. 

I've listed a few I think are brilliant.  Injoy.


Dusted  - Guided by Voices (Pollard)

Comes the sign of wasted times
I will wait no more
Ever trudging through the aimless
Forests we explore
In our boots and money chains
Misfitting cloaks we can't contain
Hidden hates of urgency
Declaring our emergency
And up the tallest window world
The distance was not clear
Unoccupied my brutish thoughts
We had no cause to fear
A lesson so severe
Hotter than the fire we built
Darker than the truth
Ignorance reflected in the windows of our youth
Push me now beyond the bounds
Of healing hands and thorny crowns
And all the sadness it implies
I've tasted with my own two eyes
And as the cattle rack was cleared
The floor was brightly stained
And larger though we grew in size
Not a thing was gained
The fate as so ordained

I'm Pregnant - Kleenex Girl Wonder (G.Smith)

One minute is all it took
And now I get it
Hey, look, there's a lot of history here
Let me tell you I hope your sitting down baby
Sorry it took so long
But you were far away
And I just found your phone number today
So I'll spit it out now baby
Are you feelin' me?
I don't believe your stories
You're no more brave than you used to be
Oh take me seriously
Oh I pretend that I'm naive
But it still hurts and I still grieve
But while I'm quick to admit that the outlook's bleak
I'm pulling in $500 bucks a week
And I'm fine with the way things are
And I'm in love
Oh and there's nothing I would rather do
Than anything involving you
You're still the one I can't stop thinking of
We got lost on the Penna Turnpike
The grey moon as bright as a prison searchlight
How soon we forget
How much it hurt the first time
I smiled at the stroke of midnight
Cause I knew the trap I'm in is skintight
Somehow I know we'll get by
Because baby
I'm much smarter now
Oh I know all your secrets
And even they don't get me down
You're hard to figure out
And even harder to please
But that's what I need
I know it's hard to believe
But just trust me
I know how it feels to be seventeen
To be young and in love and feel so unclean
To just lie in your bed and pray that your eyes won't close
Cause heaven only knows
How much I dream about you
Cause I know what I'd be without you
And that's the saddest image I have seen
You'll run straight through my scarred cuirass
And shatter my heart of glass
And how hard I'll laugh as I cash in the insurance policy
You say it's obvious, men prefer honesty
Well I'm in no mood to defend my immodesty
So let's just pretend that I've ended my odyssey
Where else can I go?
You're the sweetest girl I know
I'm pregnant and I'm coming home to you
But what can you do?
There's been some indiscretion
But who needs an ancient history lesson?
I feel good, and you look fetching
Oh, as if there's any question
