I'm the son of rage and love
The Jesus of Suburbia
From the bible of none of the above
On a steady diet of
Soda pop and Ritalin
No one ever died for my sins in hell
As far as I can tell
At least the ones I got away with

And there's nothing wrong with me
This is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
That don't believe in me

Get my television fixed
Sitting on my crucifix
The living room or my private womb
While the Moms and Brads are away
To fall in love and fall in debt
To alcohol and cigarettes
And Mary Jane
To keep me insane,
Doing someone else's cocaine

At the center of the Earth
In the parking lot
Of the 7-11 where I was taught
The motto was just a lie
It says home is where your heart is
But what a shame
Cause everyone's heart
Doesn't beat the same
It's beating out of time

Look at me and tell me that's not the greatest lyric you've ever heard

Time of Your Life is probably the most meaningful songs I've ever heard!

Taylor Swift is over him. I hate this world.

You know there's something wrong with the world when Billie is only 7 places above Justin Bieber.
Billie is an amazing lyricist. So many other artists on this list are known for their media presence, and not their lyrics. Billie is probably most famous for his lyrics and that is one reason why Green Day are such a successful band.

Hotel California!

Yes, He stole the name from the Eagles, If he even knows who the Eagles are, Probably another rapper who thinks he's better than anyone else on this planet and knows nothing about music.

Wow... Okay... Umm... Who ever put this guy on the list is just as much of a moron as Justin Bieber is. I'm sorry but I don't think he's even a moderately talented lyricist, or artist for that matter. He isn't a good singer, Also I don't think he even writes his own music... When he asks his lyricists to write his music he must say: "I want you to write the worst song you could possibly write, and I'll sing it with my high pitched annoying voice and all my musically illiterate fan girls will love it because I've brain washed them into believing I'm talented." I swear it must be something close to that, or they're just some groupies who got so high they thought they were a lyricist.

He is the worst I ever heard
