Default Ridiculously Cool Lyrical Passages

NO MORE THAN FOUR LINES - THEM'S THE RULES.

Well, I stand up next to a mountain
Chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise just a little sand

A seasoned witch could call you from the depths of your disgrace,
And rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace,
And achieve it all with music that came quickly from afar,
Then taste the fruit of man recorded losing all against the hour

Really don't mind if you sit this one out
My word's but a whisper your deafness a shout
I may make you feel but I can't make you think
Your sperm's in the gutter your love's in the sink

And all the shady preachers
Begging for my cash
Swiss bank accounts while giving their secretaries the slam

When you fall in love with me
We can dig a hole by the willow tree
Then, I will **** you until you die
Bury you and kiss this town goodbye

Edit: Oops, my reading comprehension is poor today; didn't see the four lines bit. I'll edit shortly.


There ain't no devil, only God when he's drunk
It ain't no sin, to take off your skin and dance around in your bones
How do the angels get to sleep when the devil leaves his porch light on?
Lookin' for a good time starts with throwin' in the line.

(Tom Waits - Come On Up To The House)

Fall out of the window with confetti in my hair
Deal out jacks or better on a blanket by the stairs
I'll tell you all my secrets, but I lie about my past
Send me off to bed for evermore

(Tom Waits, Tango 'Til They're Sore)

The poker's in the fire
And the locusts take the sky
And the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you

(Tom Waits again)

..Still working on choosing my favorite four lines from the other ones.

Yeah ... I love Waits too, but he said a max of four lines...
Also, "Kentucky Avenue" is one of many songs that makes me cry every time I listen to it. Have you paged through my entire complete Tom Waits discography review in my journal, perchance?

Edit: Oh, and my "The Word According to Waits" sections, too...

Sorry for temporarily hijacking your thread, Chula. We now return you to your regular programme...

I'm an idiot, sorry; I'm editing my post presently!

..And no, I haven't seen your review but I would love to! I'll do that shortly.

There are so many emotionally annihilating Waits songs. "I'm Still Here" just destroys me.

I'm dippin' up the block and I'm robbin' bitches too
Up the herringbones and bamboos
I wouldn't give a **** if you're pregnant
Gimme the baby rings and the "#1 Mom" pendant

All my life I been considered as the worst
Lyin' to my mother, even stealin' out her purse
Crime after crime, from drugs to extortion
I know my mother wished she got a ****in' abortion

So you want to die, commit suicide
Dial 1-800-Cyanide line
Far as life, yo it ain't worth it
Put a rope around your neck and jerk it

"Old men kneeling to accept their fate
Wives and daughters caught and raped
A generation drenched in hate
Says he has been here."

("No Bravery" - James Blunt.)
