    Here are a few ...

    Your light's reflected now, reflected from afar. We were but stones, your light made us stars.

    But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed by faceless men, well, fuckers he still stands.

    I know I was born and I know that I'll die. The in between is mine.

  • Believe in nothing, believe me,
    Those who can be trusted can change their mind.
    When the anxious is the present, unwrap your gifts, take your time.
    Everything you imagine needn't be stuck in your mind.
    'You know time is long, and life is short.
    Begin to live while you still can.'

    While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness.-Gilda Radner
  • So many to choose from and some previous posts have quoted killer lines. I like "the rocking horse of time" in Release, I think it's a pretty good metaphor for how the past sneaks up on you at times and memories (good or bad) that you thought long gone still hover around.
    I also like "and now my bitter hands cradle broken glass" from Black. Such a fitting image of loss and despair. I really like how these lyrics can express so much in very few words.

    I love Bee Girl! It will be my next tattoo! :D

    I also love "I've got scratches all over my arms one for each day, since I fell apart, oh I did... what I had to do, if there was a reason, it was you." and "hear my name, take a good look, this could be the day..." *o*

  • I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
    In somebody else's sky, but why, why, why
    Can't it be, can't it be mine...
    just perfect. Just black

  • In order of their studio released albums, I decided to pluck a line from each album. It was hard to do, because there are so many great lines amongst all their songs. The first line has stuck with me since the first time I heard it and from there the rest of the lines have gathered behind like waves brought in by the ever changing tides of life.

    I hope you enjoy - McQueen.

    “Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned...” Off He Goes

    “I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down” Wishlist

    “Byzantine... is reflected in our pond...” Thin Air

    “And fuck me if I say something you don't wanna hear
    And fuck if you only hear what you wanna hear
    Fuck me if I care,... but I'm not leaving here” Save You

    “If nothing is everything, I'll have it all” Gone

    “I escaped it,... A life wasted,..
    I'm never going back again.” Life Wasted

    "Cannot find the comfort in this world."
    I find this line incredibly sad....

    "Little secrets, tremors, turned to quakes,
    the smallest oceans still have big big waves."
    This line always makes me think about what I'm doing... the consequences of my actions, no matter how small.
