481 Hick-A-dickery-Dick-A-dick-A-dickery-Dock - Hollywood Undead
482 Song of the Moon - Cave Story Song of the Moon - Cave Story V 1 Comment
483 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
484 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

This song has some sad, but very motivating lyrics.

485 One-X - Three Days Grace One-X - Three Days Grace
486 Something Good - Alt J Something Good - Alt J

Somehow, this song manages to describe someone's death, even as a metaphor for a dying love, as something good. The great matador is dragged out of the arena, and the crowd is cheering for his sanguinary loss. Even though the song is short on its lyrics, it succeeds in giving the exact feeling intended. Amazing.

487 One of My Turns - Pink Floyd One of My Turns - Pink Floyd

This song from the album " The Wall" is an amazing song that talks about how pink turns quickly from the lyrics. "Day after day, love turns grey
Like the skin of a dying man
Night after night, we pretend it's all right
But I have grown older and
You have grown colder and
Nothing is very much fun any more."

This is one of the best lyrics I have heard in a song.

488 21st Century Breakdown - Green Day 21st Century Breakdown - Green Day

"We are the cries of the class of 13
Born in the era of humility
We are the desperate in the decline
Raised by the bastards of 1969"
"I swallowed my pride then I choked on my faith
I have given my heart and my soul
I have broken my fingers and lied through my teeth
The pillars of damage control
I went to the edge and I threw a bouquet
Of flowers left over the grave
I sat in the waiting room wasting my time
And waiting for judgement day
I praise liberty
The freedom to obey
It's a song that strangles me
Well don't cross the line"
These might have been some of the best lines ever written in the history of mankind.
This song is poetic and aggressive at the same time. How can this not be in top 10? Also, why are generic lyrics bands like Linkin Park and Coldplay here?

489 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

How this isn't in the top ten, much less even on the list. Is shocking. Just look up a lyric sheet and let them paint a clear picture of a very interesting and original story. - Songsta41

490 Bad Blood - Taylor Swift Bad Blood - Taylor Swift
491 Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding
492 Budapest - George Ezra Budapest - George Ezra

This song is amazing because it descirbes how a man can give all his material objects for a higher purpose, and that purpose is love.

493 The Sentinel - Judas Priest The Sentinel - Judas Priest

Possibly the greatest lyrics of all time.

494 Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin
495 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion
496 Ave Maria - Franz Schubert Ave Maria - Franz Schubert
497 Just Like Heaven - The Cure Just Like Heaven - The Cure
498 High - The Cure High - The Cure
499 21 Guns - Green Day 21 Guns - Green Day
500 Paranoid Android - Radiohead Paranoid Android - Radiohead
