Art of Lyrics

Spent my weekend breaking in a new pair of headphones by running through a chunk of my music collection. Came across a few songs that I haven't heard in awhile with powerful lyrics that either just jumped out at me or mean something to me personally. So I made this thread so we can all share what I think is a huge aspect of the music that we all love. So post any lyrics that mean something to you along with the artist and song names. Here are a few that jumped out to me to start off.

Artist: Porcupine Tree
Track: Time Flies
She said luck is all you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let’s dance a while
She said nothing ever happens
If you don’t make it happen
And if you can’t laugh then smile

Artist: This Town Needs Guns
Track: Lemur
What’s this?
Don’t bother listing your dependencies
We already know that you've got them
You've photographed the bottom glass
And it tastes like fear
You’re afraid of what might be
You know from the get go it’s over
It’s already fallen apart…

Artist: The Smiths
Track: A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours
Oh, but don’t mention love
I’d hate the pain of the strain all over again
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
It has been before
So why can’t it be now ?
And people who are weaker than you and I
They take what they want from life

Artist: Gov't Mule
Track: Beautifully Broken
She’s so beautifully broken
Shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again
She’s so beautifully broken
Barely see the flaw
Especially from a distance
Which is always how I fall
