Top 10 Songs of the 21st Century with the Most Favorite Lyrics


The Top Ten

1 Anthem - Iced Earth

We have the power make our lives what they ought to be
Reconnect with our humanity
Transcend to a higher place, accepting reality
You are the key to the life that you seek

Torn asunder, our destiny is in sight
This is the anthem to celebrate your life - Metal_Treasure

2 Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards

I know the secrets are within me
In a world of broken dreams
Depressed and haunting me
No way out
So many times it's hopeless dark and gray
No way out
And other times it's hope that saves the day

No longer struggle with the fear of

The end and what's beyond
I live a life of loyalty
True to myself and my own

The way out
A sea of life so peaceful and serene
The way out
The path of life lies open wide for me

Come join the path of glory
Leave all your fear behind - Metal_Treasure

3 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian

Now as my time's passing by
What am I waiting for?
Who'll grant me wings to fly?
And will I have another try?
'Cause I would not miss my moment again
Yes, I would not miss my moment my friend - Metal_Treasure

4 Our Loved Ones - Volbeat

You open up but what you gain is another hole
reaching out for a hand and I know
the fear of losing all the trust that it craves
and feel that parts of you are never coming back
I used to think that life was ugly and a mess
well I was right but what else to do other than your best
the meaning of it all you find within yourself
I hold the key but where's the door
I kick it in - Metal_Treasure

5 Cocoon - Jack Johnson

Take what's left of this heart and use
Please use only what you really need
You know I only have so little
So please
Mend your broken heart and leave - Metal_Treasure

6 Moth Into Flame - Metallica

You’re falling, but you think you’re flying high
High again
Sold your soul
Built the higher wall
Now you’re thrown away
Same rise and fall
Who cares at all?
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame
Addicted to the Fame - Metal_Treasure

7 I'll Sue Ya - Weird Al Yankovic

"I sued Petco

Cause I ate a bag of Kitty Litter and now I got bad breath!
I sued Coca Cola
Yo, cause I put my finger in a bottle and it got stuck!
I'll Sue Delta Airlines
Cause they sold me a ticket to New Jersey, I went there, and it SUCKED!
I'll Sue Colorado!
Because y'know I think it looks a little too much like Wyoming!

I'll Sue Ben Afleck!
...awww do I even need a reason? " - Metal_Treasure

8 What If Eminem Did Jingle Bells? - Bob Rivers

I like this parody and the way rap lyrics give Xmas a new meaning, LOL. Quotes:

"Give a new meaning to 'ho, ho, ho'
Shake that a*s girl, bump your booty in the snow"
No, Santa Claus wouldn't list me as nice

In fact, could have me listed as 'naughty' twice
Not because' of the fight, or the Christmas gift hiest
Because of the nog, I left on his wife
It's time for Old Nick to move and retire
Or we roast his nuts on a big a** fire
Yes I'm that bad, Yes, I'm that crued
I mean your a** is huge, lose weight, for real dude
All the cookies and milk, simply quite sick
I mean, when's the last time you've seen your d*ck
I don't mean to throw a fit and I'm not one to bitch
But every year I get underwear, socks, and sh*t - Metal_Treasure

9 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

This song is so epic. And Bruce Dickinson is an excellent storyteller

10 Painters of the Tempest (Part II): Triptych Lux - Ne Obliviscaris

Angels fall...
Into the canvas
Reaching for the light
Heaven is empty
...and all the beauty is here - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Take Me to Church - Hozier

"Every sunday's getting more bleak
Fresh poison each week
We were born sick
I heard them saying
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me worship in the bedroom
The only heaven I'll be send to
Is when I'm alone with you
I was born sick
But I love it" - Martin_Canine

12 Roar - Katy Perry
13 If Today Was Your Last Day - Nickelback

Thanks to whoever added this song. I also like the lyrics - very meaningful. - Metal_Treasure

14 American Idiot - Green Day

Don't wanna be an American Idiot!

15 Bless the Child - Nightwish

"Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child
Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time

I've never felt so alone in my life
As I drank from a cup which was counting my time
There's a poison drop in this cup of man
To drink it is to follow the left hand path" - Martin_Canine

16 Sing for the Moment - Eminem
17 Waking Dreams - Ayreon

Life, imagination

We are your roots, we are your blood
Come to you in waking dreams - Metal_Treasure
