    So many!

    But, one of my favorite snippets:
    "No longer overwhelmed and it seems so simple now/It's funny when things change so much/It's all state of mind/ I swallow my words (the truth) to keep from lying/ I swallow my face just to keep from biting/ I swallowed my breath and went deep I was diving/I surfaced & all of my being was enlightened/Now I'm in hiding"
    "Sometimes you find yourself having to put all your faith in no faith."

    "Born on third, thinks he got a triple"

    One of the greatest lines ever! Although written about Bush, I think we all know someone who could be perfectly summed up by this line.

    Things were different then, all is different now. I tried to explain, somehow... - Hard to Imagine

    That's a great line, not only for the words, but for the part of the song where the words come out of...somehow.

    I swallow my words to keep from lying
    I swallow my face just to keep from biting, I, I..
    I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving, diving
    I surfaced when all of my pen wasn't writing

    You're in your own world ...lets see the whole world

    I would rather starve than eat your bread

    Everything has changed....absolutley nothing's changed

    No I don't wanna hurt, theres so much in this world to make me bleed

    there's some really great quotes on here!!!

    These are a few of my favorites

    " I will stare the sun down until it burns my eyes."

    "I escaped it a life wasted and I am never going back again"

    " I surfaced and all of my being was enlightened"

    "I'm like an opening band for the sun"

    "Don't call me daughter.. not fit to.. the picture kept will remind me" -side note, this is engraved into my mother's urn, and her picture sits beside it..

    " like Pilate I have a dog.. Obeys, listens, kisses, loves.."

    " Visions of falling up somehow"

    and last, but very far from least,

    "how much difference does it make??"

    I have a few favorites:

    "whos kidding rainy way ticket headstone....
    occupations overthrown....a whisper thru a megaphone..."
    I don´t know the meaning or really understand what is about but it sounds good and I like it.. :D

    "The smallest oceans still get ... big,big waves"
    Again don´t know what the lyrics is all about but it fits the song perfect :mrgreen:
    Burn my eyes and try to blind me
    Bury me so they won't find me
    Try to suck my power empty
    Got no crown of thorns on me
  • Darkness comes in waves,... tell me,
    why invite it to stay?

    Such good advice for everyone/

    There are so many great lines and words, some of my favourites:

    love boat captain take the reign

    saved for tears that were waterfalling

    and from ITW: ... make me feel I´m falling ... safely to the ground

    I had a dream, before I heard the song, driving down from a mountain by bike, very quickly and then ... not getting the curve, but going straight on into ... thin air and: falling, falling, falling for hundreds of meters and then ...landing save on the ground.

    Most inspirational lines as of right now :

    'Are we going to the same place ? If so, can I come ?'

    'I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.'

    'Escape is never the safest path'

    'The direction of the eye, so misleading, the defection of the soul, nauseously quick. I don't question our existence, I just question our modern needs'.
