      It's not my favourite by any means....  But I love the lyrics....

      Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip – Thou Shalt Always Kill

      Thou shalt not steal if there is a direct victim
      Thou shalt not worship pop idols
      Or follow lost prophets
      Thou shalt not take the names of Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer, John Hartmond, Desmond Dekker, Jim Morrisson, Jimi Hendrix or Syd Barrett in vain

      Thou shalt not think any male over the age of 30 that plays with a child that is not their own is a paedophile, some people are just nice

      Thou shalt not read NME
      Thou shalt not stop liking a band just because they became popular
      Thou shalt not question Stephen Fry
      Thou shalt not judge a book by its cover
      Thou shalt not judge lethal weapon by Danny Glover

      Thou shalt not buy Coca Cola products
      Thou shalt not Nestlé products

      Thou shalt not go into the woods with your boyfriends best friend, take drugs, and then cheat on him
      Thou shalt not fall in love so easily

      Thou shalt not use poetry, art or music to get into girls pants...
      ...use it to get into their heads

      Thou shalt not watch Hollyoaks
      Thou shalt not attend an open mic and leave as soon as you've done your shitty little poem or song, you self-righteous pr**k
      Thou shalt not return to the same club or bar, week in, week out Because you once saw a girl there that you fancied that you're never gonna f**king talk to

      Thou shalt not put musicians and recording artists on ridiculous pedestals no matter how great they are, or were
      The Beatles were just a band
      Led Zeppelin, just a band
      The Beach Boys, just a band..
      The Sex Pistols, just a band
      The Clash, just a band
      Crass, just a band
      Minor Threat, just a band
      The Cure, just a band
      The Smiths, just a band
      Nirvana, just a band
      The Pixies, just a band
      Oasis, just a band
      Radiohead, just a band
      Bloc Party, just a band
      The Arctic Monkeys, just a band
      "The next big thing", just a band

      Thou shalt give equal worth to tragedies that occur in non-english speaking countries as to those that occur in english speaking countries

      Thou shalt remember that guns, bitches and bling were never part of the 4 elements and never will be

      Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music
      Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music
      Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music
      Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music

      Thou shalt not Pimp My Ride
      Thou shalt not scream if you wanna go faster
      Thou shalt not move to the sound of the wickedness
      Thou shalt not make some noise for Detroit
      When I say "Hey", thou shalt not say "Ho"
      When I say "Hip", thou shalt not say "Hop"
      When I say, he say, she say, we say; "Make some noise.", kill me

      "Ah, I've forgot were I was, hang on..."

      Thou shalt not quote me happy
      Thou shalt not shake it like a polaroid picture
      Thou shalt not wish your girlfriend was a freak, like me
      Thou shalt spell the word "Pheonix"
      P-H-E-O-N-I-X
      Not, P-H-O-E-N-I-X, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you

      Thou shalt not express your shock at the fact that Sharon got off with Brad at a club last night by saying; "Izziiit"

      Thou shalt think for yourselves

      And thou shalt always, thou shalt always, kill

      Those lyrics are based in one of the most brilliant books I've ever read, The Grapes of Wrath.

      Bruce Springsteen - The Ghost of Tom Joad

      The highway is alive tonight
      Where it's headed everybody knows
      I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
      Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad

      Now Tom said "Ma, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy
      Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
      Where there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
      Look for me, Ma, I'll be there
      Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand
      Or a decent job or a helpin' hand
      Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free
      Look in their eyes, Ma, you'll see me."

      I could put so many Bruce lyrics in this thread...

      THE RIVER

      I come from down in the valley
      where mister when you're young
      They bring you up to do like your daddy done
      Me and Mary we met in high school
      when she was just seventeen
      We'd ride out of this valley down to where the fields were green

      We'd go down to the river
      And into the river we'd dive
      Oh down to the river we'd ride

      Then I got Mary pregnant
      and man that was all she wrote
      And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
      We went down to the courthouse
      and the judge put it all to rest
      No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
      No flowers no wedding dress

      That night we went down to the river
      And into the river we'd dive
      Oh down to the river we did ride

      I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
      But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
      Now all them things that seemed so important
      Well mister they vanished right into the air
      Now I just act like I don't remember
      Mary acts like she don't care

      But I remember us riding in my brother's car
      Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
      At night on them banks I'd lie awake
      And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
      Now those memories come back to haunt me
      they haunt me like a curse
      Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
      Or is it something worse
      that sends me down to the river
      though I know the river is dry
      That sends me down to the river tonight
      Down to the river
      my baby and I
      Oh down to the river we ride

      Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band - Live in NYC - The River

      This is so sad and beautiful... and you can easily reflect them to so many real stories... which I think is one of Bruce's main talents...

      And we waited for sirens that never come
      And we only write by the moon, every word handwritten
      And to ease the loss of youth and how many years I've missed you
      Pages plead forgiveness, every word handwritten

      Jeep Azz Niguh/Born to Roll

      Black boy, black boy, turn that sh*t down
      You know that America don't wanna hear the sound
      Of the bass drum, jungle music, Go back to Africa
      Niguh, I'll arrest ya if you're holding up traffic

      I'll be damned if I listen
      So cops, save your breath and
      Write another ticket if you have any left and
      I'm breakin eardrums while I'm breakin the law
      I'm disturbin all the peace cause Sister Souljah said, "War"

      So catch me if ya can, if ya can, here's a doughnut
      Cause when you drive away, yo, you know I gonna go nut
      And turn it up to where it was before, Nice try,
      But you can't stop the power of the bass in your eye

      If wonder if I blasted a little Elvis Presley
      Would they pull me over and attempt to arrest me?
      I really doubt, doubt it, they'll probably start dancin,
      Jumpin on my dick and, Pissin in they pants and
      wiggling and then jiggling and grabbing on they pelvis
      But you know my name, so you never hear no Elvis
      Strictly the hardcore, dirty street-level sh*t
      God's on my side so watch what the devil get
      Positivity hittin like fifty level deep
      Comin out the, comin out the, woofers in my jeep

      Lovely. So defiant!

      Jolene - Ray LaMontagne

      Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
      Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
      Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes
      In the early mornin' rain

      Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
      My eyes been stung with dust and blind
      Held you in my arms one time
      Lost you just the same

      Jolene
      Well, I ain't about to go straight, it's too late
      And I found myself face down in the ditch
      Booze in my hair, blood on my lips

      A picture of you holding a picture of me
      In the pocket of my blue jeans
      Still don't know what love means
      Still don't know what love means

      Jolene
      Jolene

      It's been so long since I've seen your face
      Or felt a part of this human race
      I've been living out of this here suitcase
      For way too long

      Man needs something he can hold onto
      Nine pound hammer or a woman like you

      Either one of them things will do

      Jolene
      Well, I ain't about to go straight, it's too late
      And I found myself face down in the ditch
      Booze in my hair, blood on my lips

      A picture of you holding a picture of me
      In the pocket of my blue jeans
      Still don't know what love means
      Still don't know what love means

      Jolene

      Sold my coat when I hit Spokane

      One of my favorite songs and one of PJ's best ever.....


      Just Breathe - Pearl Jam

      Yes I understand that every life must end, aw huh...
      As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, aw huh...
      I'm a lucky man to count on both hands
      The ones I love...

      Some folks just have one
      Others they got none, aw huh...

      Chorus 1:
      Stay with me
      Let's just breathe

      Verse 2:
      Practiced are my sins
      Never gonna let me win, aw huh...
      Under everything, just another human being, aw huh...
      Yea, I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world
      To make me bleed

      Chorus 2:
      Stay with me
      You're all I see

      Bridge 1:
      Did I say that I need you?
      Did I say that I want you?
      Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
      No one knows this more than me
      As I come clean

      Verse: 3
      I wonder everyday
      As I look upon your face, aw huh...
      Everything you gave
      And nothing you would take, aw huh...
      Nothing you would take
      Everything you gave

      Bridge 2:
      Did I say that I need you?
      Did I say that I want you?
      Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
      No one knows this more than me
      As I come clean

      Outro:
      Nothing you would take
      Everything you gave
      Hold me 'till I die
      Meet you on the other side

      So what is it worth, I'll sell my soul
      What is it worth, only you know

      "She runs through the streets
      With her eyes painted red
      Under a black belly of cloud in the rain
      In through a doorway she brings me
      White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
      She is raging
      She is raging
      And the storm blows up in her eyes
      She will...

      Suffer the needle chill
      She's running to stand...still"

      What took you so long? Courteeners

      What took you so long?
      Was there a queue at the post office?
      What took you so long?
      Was there a dirty, double stage coach you just happened to miss?

      Is it heaven or hell at dawn
      you really go it up or your going down
      do you say your prayers late at night
      or do you save them for the desperate times

      do you see the beauty of a rose, i doubt it
      do you hear the children sing aloud, no
      can you see the leaves change the colors out there
      can you taste the water in your mouth

      is it any wonder
      is there any hope
      100mph
      yet the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow

      do you believe in good will forever guide
      does your devil take you to your other side
      can karma kill you in your mind
      do you plan to solve this one tonight
      do you see the beauty in a rose, i doubt it
      can you hear the children sing aloud

      is it any wonder
      is there any hope
      100mph
      yet the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow

      were running out of time, my friends
      your running out of time, oh yeah, oh yeah

      is there any wonder
      is there any hope
      100mph
      yet the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow
      the race just still runs slow
      the race just still feels slow

      Let the raining teardrops rain down on me tonight
      I think making up, faking up stories is alright
      Tick tock stop the clock, fiction is my thing
      My attitude is always I and me and mine

      Oh I'm so clever
      Until my paranoia kicks in then I'll accuse her
      Of doing all the worst things i do best
      Its funny how me, f**king her about,
      Has got me in this f**king mess

      Liar liar pants on fire
      Lies alibis lies more alibis
      From the truth, I admit I'm more than shy
      Ain't the the times we are living in
      Everybody's doing it so why cant i?

      I tally up tonight's strangers
      And stragglers that I've kissed
      Training ground notches, perfectly executed notches
      And near misses
      Its all about going out and getting pissed with eagle eyes
      And sincerity bottom on my list
      What's the story morning glory?
      I feel so low and worthless

      So this is where the outcome unfurls and the truth is being told
      A cloud has gathered over my head and now i know
      Infidelity and my good friend ecstasy doesn't work, it makes you worse
      I'm feeling so guilty about the things i said to my mum when i was ten years old
      I'm feeling so guilty about any old sh*t
      And how I think my missus is f**king every guy that she looks at
      This is it, the end was always coming and now its here

      So this is the grande finale
      The crescendo of demise
      This is the happy ending
      Where the bad guy goes down and dies
      This is the end
      With me on my knees and wondering why?
      Cross my heart, hope to die
      Its my own cheating heart that makes me cry

      The boy with the thorn in his side
       Behind the hatred there lies
       A plundering desire for love
       How can they see the Love in our eyes
       And still they don't believe us ?
       And after all this time
       They don't want to believe us
       And if they don't believe us now
       Will they ever believe us ?
       And when you want to Live
       How do you start ?
       Where do you go ?
       Who do you need to know ?

      This wont mean much to non Dubliners, but its a belter. 1st line hooks ye in straight away

      Raised on songs & stories, heroes of re-known
       The passing tales & glories that once was Dublin town
       The hallowed halls & houses, the haunting childrens' rhymes
       That once was Dublin city in the rare ould times

       [Chorus:]
       Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
       I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times

       My name it is Sean Demspey, as Dublin as can be
       Born hard & late in Pimlico, in a house that ceased to be
       By trade I was a cooper, lost out to redundancy
       Like my house that fell to progress, my trade's a memory

       & I courted Peggy Dignan, as pretty as you please
       A rogue & a child of Mary, from the rebel liberties
       I lost her to a student chap with a skin as black as coal
       When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my soul

       [Chorus]

       The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims my brain
       'Cause Dublin keeps on changing & nothing stays the same
       The Pillar & the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down
       As the great unyielding concrete makes a city of my town

       [Chorus]

       Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay
       & watch the new glass cages, that spring up along the quay
       My mind's too full of memories, too old to hear new chimes
       I'm part of what was Dublin in the rare ould times

      I grew up fast
      And I grew up hard
      Something was wrong from the very start
      I was fighting everybody
      I was fighting everything
      But the only one that I hurt was me
      I got society's blood running down my face
      Somebody help me get outta this place
      How could someone's bad luck last so long?
      Until I realized that I was wrong.
      I was wrong
      Self destruction's got me again
