  • To me:

    - everything on Light Years, Sleight of Hand, Parting Ways, Oceans, Thumbing my Way and yes, Just Breathe and The End - but I am biased by the last two songs due to personal experiences.

    Hear the sirens, hear the siren
    Hear the siren, hear the circus all go found
    I hear the sirens more and more in this here town
    Let me catch my breath to breathe then reach across the bend

    Just to know we’re safe, I am a grateful man
    This light is pit, alive and I can see you clear
    I could take your hand, and feel your breath
    For feel that someday this will be over
    I pull you close, so much to lose

    Knowing that, nothing lasts forever
    I didn’t care, before you were here
    A distant laughter, with the everafter
    But, all things change, let this remain

    Hear the sirens covering distance in the night
    The sound, echoing closer, will they come for me, next time?

    For every choice, mistake I made, is not my plan
    To see you in the arms of another man
    And if you choose to stay, I’ll wait, I’ll understand

    Oh, it’s a fragile thing, this life we lead, if I think too much, I can’t
    get over
    When by the graces, by which we live our lives with death over our
    shoulders
    Want you to know, that should I go, I always loved you, held you high above
    too
    I studied your face, the fear goes away.



    It’s a fragile thing, this life we lead, if I think too much, I can’t get
    over
    When by the graves, by which we live our lives with death over our
    shoulders
    Want you to know, that should I go, I always loved you, held you high above
    too
    I studied your face, the fear goes away, the fear goes away, the fear goes
    away.
    "...Dimitri...He talks to me...'.."The Ghost of Greece..".
    "..That's One Happy Fuckin Ghost.."
    “..That came up on the Pillow Case...This is for the Greek, With Our Apologies.....”
  • Rearviewmirror, Tremor Christ, Satan's Bed, Bugs, Indifference, Inside Job grew on me (see post here somewhere), Force of Nature... Just to mention a few.
  • It's hard to say just one ... But these are some of my favorite songs:

    - Come Back
    - Unthought known
    - I am mine
    - Elderly Woman
    - Got some
    - The Fixer
    - Yellow Ledbetter
    - Animal
    - Nothingman
    - Garden
    - Who you are
    - Smile
    - Off He goes
    - Breakerfall
    - The end
    - Just breathe
    ...

    In the hearts and minds of men
    When progress becomes plausible
    In reverse we curse ourselves
    By thinking we're infallible
    Are we chancing fate instead?

    keep on locking your doors
    keep on building your floors
    keep on just as before

    pay disasters no mind
    didn't get you this time
    no prints left at the crime

    our ship's come in
    and it's sinking

    of everything that's possible
    in the hearts and minds of men
    somehow it is the biggest things
    that keep on slipping right through our hands

    by thinking we're infallible
    oh, we are tempting fate instead

    time we'd best begin
    here at the ending

    want a third second-chance?
    put your faith in big hands
    pay no more than a glance

    all good things come to an end
    this could be good as it gets
    how's the view from the fence?

    you'd think we'd been here before
    you are mistaken

    of everything that's possible
    in the hearts and minds of men
    when progress could be plausible
    in reverse we curse ourselves

    by thinking were infallible
    oh, we are chancing fate instead

    time we'd best begin
    here at the ending

    of everything that's possible
    in the hearts and minds of men
    somehow it is the biggest things
    that keep on slipping right through our hands

    by thinking were infallible
    oh, we are tempting fate instead

    time we'd best begin
    here at the ending
    here at the ending

    So many amazing lyrics to choose from. My personal Favorite's are

    I am Mine
    Present tense
    Black
    Nothingman
    These lines from Thumbing my Way are great that haven't been mentioned yet, just love them.

    I can't be free with what's locked inside of me...
    If there was a key, you took it in your hands.

    and

    All the rusted signs we ignore throughout our lives

    Easy come easy go
    Easy left me a long time ago

    I'm in the fire, but I'm still cold
    Nothing works, works for me anymore

  • My new favorite is:
    It's a fragile thing
    This life we lead
    If I think too much
    I can get over
    Whelmed by the grace
    By which we live our lives
    With death over our shoulders

    Do the Evolution: it's herd behavior goes through my mind at least a couple times a day when I see people in action

    and these tragic lines from Yellow Moon:
    They sky grows dark
    With fallen stars
    Who'd come so far
    A headstone engraved
    The colors turn gray
    The black and white fades

    There are tons to choose from on LB. This album is amazing lyrically.

  • I think LB is their best album lyrically since No Code, and their second best overall.
