    "The live shows? Well, that's church on Sundays"
  • so, so many...
    a few would be;

    You don't have to stray the oceans away.
    Waves roll in my thoughts. Hold tight the ring.
    The sea will rise please stand by the shore.

    I get the words and then I get to thinking.
    I don't want to think, I want to feel.

    I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving.
    I surfaced and all of my being was enlightened.

    Is this just another phase of earthquakes making waves?
    Trying to shake the cancer off... us stupid human beings.

    Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing.
    And there's just one word I still believe, and it's love.

    Up here so high, the boughs they break...up here so high, the sky I scrape.
    And my eyes fell both wide open...and I got a glimpse of my inner sense.
    Got back my innocence.

    Sometimes I burn like a dot on the sun...

    The man they call my enemy.
    I've seen his eyes he looks just like me

    And the wind keeps roaring... and the sky keeps turning grey.
    And the sun is setting... the sun will rise another day.


    ...and all of Thumbing My Way
    I get the words and then I get to thinking.
    I don't want to think, I want to feel...

  • "The waiting drove ME mad"

    i like that line i don't why, but i do!
    I don't live today.....Maybe tomorrow?-Jimi Hendrix
  • Holy crap, this is impossible to narrow down!
    Here are just a few of my favorites, sorry for the repeats...
    .
    From "Thumbing My Way"
    there's no wrong or right, but i'm sure there's good and bad
    i wish that i could hold you
    i wish that i had

    i can't see what's next, from this lonely overpass
    hang my head and count my steps, as another car goes past
    all the rusted signs we ignore throughout our lives
    choosing the shiny ones instead
    i turned my back, now there's no turning back


    "Black"
    I take a walk outside
    I'm surrounded by some kids at play
    I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
    Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
    I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
    How quick the sun can, drop away
    And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything?

    "Alive"
    What you thought was your daddy was nothin' but a...
    While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen
    Your real daddy was dyin', sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked...

    "Jeremy"
    at home
    drawing pictures
    of mountain tops
    with him on top
    lemin yellow sun
    arms raised in a V
    dead lay in pools of maroon below

    "Dissident"
    escape is never, the safest path

    "Old Lady Behind the Counter..."
    memories like fingerprints are slowly raising

    i swear i recognize your breath
    cannot find the candle of thought to light your name

    "Better Man"
    as he opens the door, she rolls over...
    pretends to sleep as he looks her over

    she dreams in color, she dreams in red,
    There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.-Howard Zinn
  • Definitely very hard to chose..but a few are:

    "I wish I was the verb to trust & never let you down"

    "its a hopeless situation...and im strating to believe that this hopeless situation..is what im trying to achieve"

    "its an art to live with pain.."
    there are soooo many!
  • This is an impossible topic...my head is reeling with every PJ song there is..but because of the little insight that comes with Lost Dogs, what sticks on me right now is not a lyric, but a memory of Mikes:

    A riff loosely based on...somthing I had during the Ten sessions. I thought it was pretty. Eddie started making up words on the spot and we kept them. I still don't know what it's about and I don't want to! I love it. Fans like it to.

    This is what PJ is all about.
  • " There is no wrong or right, but I'm sure there is good and bad..."

    "I changed by not changing at all"

    "The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrow's denied..."

    "hold me and make it truth, that when all is lost there will be you"

    "It's evolution, BABY!!!"

    "I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind, i wont change direction and i wont change my mind."


    "I am lost i am no guide, but im by your side, i am right by your side."


    "Saw things so much clearer. once you were in my rearview mirror."

    "I know what i wear not a box or the bag(this is because i love the song and still dont know what the hell that line means:)

    "I remember when..yeah, swore i knew everything."

    "Been washed in black...tatooed everything."

    "Spent her best days, reading naked on the bed."

    "I ll just lie alone and wait for the dream, where im not ugly and you looking at me."

    "Hear my name, take a good look, this could be the day, hold my hand, walk beside me, I just need to say........."

    I ALWAYS have that line in my head every single day:)

    Me, too. Not a single day goes by that it's not there.

    wow, what a great read. thank you.

    Here's a few favourites that i don't think have been mentioned...

    “I want to go but I don’t want to go alone. With you I could never feel alone.” (and all the wonderful variations).
    -Untitled

    “And now he’s home and we’re laughing like we always did my same old, same old friend.”
    -Off He Goes

    “I take a walk outside I'm surrounded by some kids at play, oh I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?”
    -Black

    “Rise, life is in motion.”
    “Won’t let the light escape from me, won’t let the darkness swallow me.”
    -Down

    “This is my chance, this is my life and my hope in an alleyway”
    “Its okaaa-aa-ayyyyy, you know I love you anyway.”
    -It’s OK (Daughter tag)

    Most of those lines are pretty heavily influenced by the way they are sung...but i can't help it!
