Define the state of things
So far
Crazy things
With your eyes open
You know soft-spoken changes nothing
A view so cruel

Skinny Puppy - Worlock
My favorite "fark you" line from a song...

Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day
And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf
But let me tell you I got some news for you
And you'll soon find out it's true
And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself
'Cause I'm already gone

Already Gone, The Eagles
I once hid my lust for stardom like a filthy magazine
I stroked the shaft of my guitar and watched you on the screen
I've become now what I wanted
To be all along
A psychopathic poet, the devil's bastard son

Wall of Voodoo - Far Side of Crazy
Now, some kind of man he can't do anything wrong, if I see him I'll tell him you're waiting

Mercenary Territory - Little Feat / Lowell George
From lips without passion to the lips with a kiss
There's nothing of your love that I'll ever miss
The stain on my notebook remains all that's left
Of the memory of late nights and coffee in bed

Squeeze, Black Coffee in Bed
"Did you exchange
A walk-on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?"

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

I always thought that line was "a walk-on part in The Wall", referencing the movie based on the album. Just looked it up and learned that the album The Wall wasn't even released until 4 years after this song...
It ain't home till you take the wheels off,
it ain't home till its up on blocks.
There ain't nothin' like your very own spot,
Your own redneck camelot.

It ain't home till you take the wheels off...

It Ain't Home Till You Take the Wheels Off -Antsy McClain And The Trailer Park Troubadours
I dunno why it took me so long to recall this one... When Kurt Cobain blew his brains out, a lot of his pop-mentality 'fans' asked 'why?', to which I'd qoute his words... The blank uncomprehending stare I got in response never failed to make me laugh;

He's the one who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along and he likes to shoot his gun
But he don't know what it means

In Bloom - Nirvana

...and that calls to mind one of my personal favourites from years earlier;

Why kill time when you can kill yourself

Why Kill Time (When You Can Kill Yourself) - Cabaret Voltaire
"I fought the <blackberries> and the <blackberries> won"

PSA Kiddies: trim the dying stalks that flowered prior year, well in advance of next year's explosion of skin shredding thorn hell.
You've been warned.

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day’s useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold-hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colors from our sight.
Red is gray and yellow white,
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?

Late Lament, spoken word from Nights in White Satin, The Moody Blues

I bought this album (Days of Future Passed) at a garage sale for $.25 way back in the eighties. Still have it but no way to play it.
