Default best lyricists

I'm talking about the people who make you stop everything and just listen to what they have to say.

john Darnielle is the best lyricist ever

Kurt Cobain, the couple from Over the Rhine, Aarom Weiss from mewithoutYou, David Bazan (ex-Pedro the Lion) and whoever writes the lyrics for System of a Down.

In Brazil, I really enjoy Cazuza, Renato Russo and Humberto Gessinger, probably even more than english-speaking lyricists.

Alanis Morissette is brilliant with words.

I can't listen to Tom Waits long enough to understand his lyrics because of his voice.
