    I'm a lyrical gangsta

    Post some song lyrics you enjoy, and, if you are so inclined, DEFEND YOUR POSITION!
    (Or just share what it is you enjoy about them.)

    They don't have to be your favorite, or "the best" or even good. Just song lyrics that do ....something for you, even if that something is pure, unbridled rage.

    The lyrics in the thread title just plain amuse me. Until I heard that song lo those many years ago, I was not aware that gangsters of the lyrical variety existed, now I hope someday to meet one.

    Another one I enjoy (and was the inspiration for this thread) is "She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean, she was the best damn woman that I ever seen. She had sightless eyes, telling me no lies, knocking me out with those American thighs." Why do I love it? Not sure exacty, and after belting it out in the car ride home, I spent the rest of the drive pondering that question.

    I want to close the doors
    behind my bleeding back
    and dance among the shadows
    for future glory's lost


    Not entirely sure why I love it, but I never get tired of it. Captures the feel of my occasional self-destructive revelings after some disappointment or failure.

    And somethin's in the way she looks at her prey
    There's no way she'll allow you to live
    Swallow the fight, inhale the night
    There's not much else left for you to give

    I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
    And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
    Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

    Really? The serious tone, the passion for which people sing it. Just cracks me up.

    She said, "I never wanna make you mad.
    I just wanna make you proud."
    I said, " Baby just make me cum,
    Then don't make a sound."

    Ooh, those are all beautiful and interesting without music. Which clarifies my love of the AC DC lyrics. It's his delivery and his intensity.

    Excellent! That one cracks me up too, and I really dislike that song as a whole,

    Listening to this song is like looking at yourself in a mirror with another mirror behind you the images go on and on till they fade away. It's a pure self-referential feedback loop of bittersweet memory, a mobius strip of regret.

    I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
    Turned on some music to start my day
    I lost myself in a familiar song
    I closed my eyes and I slipped away

    It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
    I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
    'Till I see Marianne walk away
    I see my Marianne walkin' away

    So many people have come and gone
    Their faces fade as the years go by
    Yet I still recall as I wander on
    As clear as the sun in the summer sky

    -refrain

    When I'm tired and thinking cold
    I hide in my music, forget the day
    And dream of a girl I used to know
    I closed my eyes and she slipped away
    She slipped away

    This whole song, but particularly these lyrics:

    I hope you're unhappy and hurting inside
    I want you to choke when you swallow your pride
    Lay in your coffin and sleep with your sins
    Give me the nails and I'll hammer them in
