"Forward" he cried from the rear....and the front rank died. The General sat, and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

Advertising signs that con
you into thinking you're the one
who can do what's never been done
who can win what's never been won
meantime life goes on outside
all around you—
Dylan, "It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)"

This lyric came to mind this past weekend as I walked through the Atlanta airport noticing all the people hooked up to their smart phone/dialysis machines.

You say I wouldn't know you now,
Well, I didn't even know you then.

Not a line or two, but:

quote:

We were walking, holding hands
With our bare feet in the sand
And the seagulls overhead
When I broke the spell and said

"I could never divorce you
Without a good reason
And though I may never have to
It's good to have options"

But for now, I need you
But for now, I need you
But for now, I need you

But it was only in my head
Because no one ever says
What they really mean to say
When there's so much at stake

So I told her I loved her
And she told me she loved me
And I mostly believed her
And she mostly believed me


- Pedro the Lion

Left my neggaz house paid
Picked up a girl been trying to frick since the 12th grade
It's Ironic
I had the booze she had the chronic
The Lakers beat the Super Sonics
Felt on the big fat fanny
Pulled out the Jammy
And kilt the poonanny


This made LOL after reading all the serious ones

Some brief distraction from your memory
Is all that I hoped that she might be

Wish you were her

Just because you're better than me
Doesn't mean, I'm lazy
Just because you're going forward,
Doesn't mean I'm going backwards

Good call on the TVZ earlier, I'll add this:

quote:

Goodbye to all my friends
It's time to go again
Think of all the poetry
And the pickin' down the line
I'll miss the system here
The bottom's low
And the treble's clear
But it don't pay to think to much
On things you leave behind.
I will be gone
But it won't be long
I will be a'bringin' back the melodies
And rhythm that I find.

TVZ

I'll throw in one more:

quote:

Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes As far as they can
They don't just care
You're a wasted face
You're a sad-eyed lie
You're a holocaust.

A.C.

Laughing on the bus
Playing games with the faces
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
I said "Be careful his bowtie is really a camera"

"Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat"
"We smoked the last one an hour ago"
So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine
And the moon rose over an open field

re: Best line or two of lyrics ever....
That is a great lyric, pw. I remember when that song came out, I heard it and thought to myself, "that's is so simple and so powerful at the same time."

Before you cross the street, take my hand.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.


John Lennon "Beautiful Boy".

I'll stand by you. I'll stand by you.
Won't let nobody hurt you. I'll stand by you.


The Pretenders "I'll Stand By You".

I've seen your flag on the marble arch.
Love is not a victory march.


Rufus Wainwright version of "Hallelujah".

I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.

Jim Croce "Lover's Cross".

And if California slides into the ocean,
Like the mystics and statistics say it will.
I predict this motel will be standing
Until I pay my bill.


Warren Zevon "Desperados Under the Eaves"

And of course:

Hold me closer, Tony Danza.
Count the head lice on the highway.


Elton John and Bernie Taupin
