Best Lyrics from PJ

In your opinion, what are the best lyrics from PJ?

For me, it would be Love Boat Captain on top. Plus Given To Fly, Ghost, Indifference, You Are, Just Breathe.
Ooh, yeah! All right!
Were [Pearl] jammin
I wanna [Pearl] jam it wid you.
Were [Pearl] jammin, [Pearl] jammin
And I hope you like [Pearl] jammin too.

    most recent...UNTHOUGHT KNOWN...freaking awsome!!

    LET THE SKY BLANKET YOU IN GEMS AND RHINESTONES!! (i scream this in my car while driving & listening)
    SEE THE PATH CUT BY THE MOON...FOR YOU TO WALK ON

    and then, this part I yell and cry almost simultaneously

    DREAM THE DREAM OF OTHER MEN...YOU'LL BE NO ONE'S RIVAL
    DREAM THE DREAM OF OTHERS THEN...YOU WILL BE NO ONE 'S RIVAL!!!

    seeing it live was my ultimate.

    how does he come up with words that move so many of us time and time again??
    "Dream the dream others then...you will be no one's RIVAL!"
    "Doo do do do doo do doo, Doo do do do doo do doo..."

    one of many-

    It's a disease,... and they're all green
    It emanates from their being
    A satiation,.. with occupation

    And like weeds,.. with big leaves
    Stealing light from what's beneath
    Where they have more,...
    Still they take more
    The whole world will be different soon... - EV

    Wow, just like everything from PJ, it is so hard to pick one song or one section of a song that is the "Best".

    I love the lyrics to Black, Tremor Christ, Off He Goes, Nothingman,....list goes on and on.
    More recently, I really like Force of Nature!

    Under a star-lined ceiling...
    And darkness so sleep. Ah,...
    Your sense is revealed...
    In the moonlight...
    It's a love drawn nearer.
    Darkened days are spent in.

    A night bird is followin' you all the time.
    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    I feel part of the universe open up to meet me
    My emotion so submerged, broken down to kneel in
    ...

    My love is safe for the universe
    See me now, I'm bursting
