I am big fan of Beck and Nirvana, but I think the best lyrics ever come from Tool from Sober. Here is a little bit:

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.

Default Neil Peart

I'm a huge fan of Rush, and obviously love Neil Peart for his percussion skills - however, he is also an amazing writer - (his book on his experiences after his wife and daughter died is amazing) - but some of his lyrics are profound and metaphorical - my personal favorite is 'The Trees'

'There is unrest in the forest,
there is trouble in the trees,
for the Maples want more sunlight,
and the Oaks ignore their pleas'

While perhaps not the best example of his lyrics, the whole song is very cleverly crafted, telling the story of oppression, almost commenting on big business and it's power to overshadow little business...

Just my thoughts!

To the extent that I wear skirts
And cheap nylon slips
I’ve gone native
I wanted to know the exact dimension of hell
Does this sound simple?
F**k you! are you for sale?
Does ’f**k you’ sound simple enough?
This was the only part that turned me on
But he was candy all over

Come on down to the store
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more

I grew up in a shotgun row
Sliding down the hill
Out front were the big machines
Steel and rusty now I guess
Outback was the river
And that big sign down the road
That’s where it all started

Come on down to the store
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more
Come on down to the store
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more
Come on down to the store
You can buy some more, and more, and more, and more
You can buy some more, more, more, more

Sonic Youth- The Sprawl

I'm not sure who did this song I think it's Tom Paxton and I know Pete Seeger released a version.

What did you learn in school today,dear little boy of mine ?
What did you learn in school today,dear little boy of mine?
I learned that Washington never told a lie,
I learned that soldiers seldom die,
I learned that everybody`s free,
and that`s what the teacher said to me.
That`s what I learned in school today, that`s what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine ?
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
I learned that policemen are my friends,
I learned that justice never ends,
I learned that murderers die for their crimes,
even if we let them escape sometimes.
That`s what I learned in school today, that`s what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine ?
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
I learned that government must be strong,
it`s always right and never wrong,
our leaders are the finest men,
and we elect them again and again and again and again.
That`s what I learned in school today, that`s what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine ?
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
I learned that war is not so bad,
I learned about the great ones we have had,
we fought in Germany and in France,
and some day I will get my chance.

Code Blue - TSOL

I never got along with the girls at my school
Filling me up with all their morals and their rules
They'd pile all their problems on my head
I'd rather go out and f*ck the dead
'Cause I can do what I want and they won't complain
I wanna f*ck I wanna f*ck the dead
Middle of the night so silently
I creep on over to the mortuary
Lift up the casket and fiddle with the dead
Their cold blue flesh makes me turn red
'Cause I can do what I want and they won't complain
I wanna f*ck I wanna f*ck the dead
And I don't even care how she died...
But I like it better if she smells of formaldehyde!
Never on the rag or say leave me alone
They don't scream and they don't moan
Don't even cry if I shoot in their hair
Lying on the table she smiles and she stares
Chorus

Suicidal Tendencies - I Saw Your Mommy

Yesterday, as I went out of the house
I saw a body lying down quiet as a mouse
Lying face down in the sewer
I got up closer and realized that I knew her
All her organs coming from her inside
Slashed up skin sliced up hide
Turned her over and saw the tire tracks on her head
That's when I realized she was dead

I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead
I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead

Twisted body chopped off feet
Her body was minced meat
Bugs crawling on her arms
She's dead, can't do no harm
Gnarled up legs, broken and bent
Her last breath has been spent

I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead
I watched her as she bled
Chewed off toes on her chopped off feet
I took a picture cause I thought it was neat
But the thing I like seeing the best
Was the rodents using her hair as a nest

I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead
I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead
I saw your mommy nnd your mommy's dead
I saw her lying in a pool of red
I think it's the greatest thing I'll ever see
Your dead mommy lying in front of me
I'll always remember her lying dead on the floor
I hope she dies twenty times more

I saw your mommy and your mommy is dead
I saw your mommy and your mommy is dead
