Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 22XW

421The Catalyst - Linkin Park

Sounds creepy.. But it always makes me think of another world that we have after we die.. The lyrics is so deep:
God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
For the sins of our hand?
The sins of our tongue?
The sins of our father?
The sins of our young?

422Sukiyaki - Kyu Sakamoto

Read the translation... Don't listen to the "English" version (not the same)

423Empty Garden - Elton John

Best tribute song ever. Since John Lennon was his friend, he can rarely perform this live.

424French Waltz - Art GarfunkelV1 Comment
425End of the Line - Traveling Wilburys

So much talent in one place together. The video handling of Roy Orbison's death between recording the audio and making the video was masterful. Jeff Lynne sings my favorite line ever from any song in this ("every day is just one day"). Great song for a bad day... Or, a good day!

426Clayman - In Flames
427Famous Last Words - My Chemical Romance

"I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

428Pendulous Fall - Kamelot

Well written song, usually so difficult to write songs on this topic, but it does it well and it sounds epic to boot.

429Build God, Then We'll Talk - Panic! at the Disco

It's such a deep song (and video... ) by Panic! At the Disco! Although it can be interpreted a little differently, it's about being forced to make choices like abandoning your purity to obtain the things you want and stooping to new lows, hence the 'sleeping with roaches'. It's also telling a story about a sleazy lawyer at a motel with someone whoring themselves off for their job, then getting caught and having to pay the consequences (pregnancy). If you haven't hear it, you really should listen! Aside from lyrics, it is also brilliant. that cello solo makes my heart quiver every time! It's not an uplifting song, and it's not about things like politics, love, or friendship, but the story it tells is so moving! It also disproves the meaning behind the song 'my favorite things' for the Sound of Music.

430Here, There, and Everywhere - The Beatles
431Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold
432Desperado - The Eagles
433Sirens - Pearl Jam
434One Vision - Queen

At the end he says
Just gimme gimme gimme gimme fried chicken

The whole song is also awesome

435Ultraviolet (Light My Way) - U2

Classic song which any U2 fan would agree is one of their less well-known gems!

"There is a silence that comes to a house
Where no one can sleep
I guess it's the price of love
I know it's not cheap
Oh come on, Baby baby baby light my way"

436Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day
437World Wide Suicide - Pearl Jam
438Headlights - Eminem
439Janie's Got a Gun - Aerosmith
440Photograph - Nickelback
