How is this not on list. It is a legendary song with best lyrics. Cone on people, vote it up

I guess it is lack of Floyd knowledge

I love this song. lyrically the best by Pink Floyd

35? This HAS to be #1. One of the reasons Dark Side of The Moon is so great.

48Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park

Great lyrics which we can all relate to

49Feel Good Drag - Anberlin
50Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Just listening to the opening Rocks my Mind!

The Gift have best lyrics of all. Fade to Black is rocks, but I pleased to have seether in 1st place.

53Stricken - Disturbed

Hotel California is one of the greatest lyrical pieces in rock history. They tell a story in a mesmerizing and eerie way and you can't help but get teleported to the dark desert highway while listening to these. Great song about addiction.
