    For me, rn

    Alice in chains-rooster:

    Aint found a way to k--- me yet
    Eyes burn with stinging sweat
    Seems every path leads me to nowhere
    Wife and kids, household pet
    Army green was no safe bet
    The bullets scream to me from somewhere

    Or
    Gnarls barkley- just a thought

    Life is a one way street and,
    If you could paint it,
    I'd draw myself going in the right direction,
    So I go all the way,
    Like I really, really know but the truth is,
    I'm only guessing


    How about you people

    I'll lay down the tracks,
    Sandbag and hide,
    January has April showers,
    And two and two always makes a five
    It's the Devil's way now,
    There is no way out,
    You can scream and you can shout,
    It is too late now

    Limelight by Rush

    Living on a lighted stage
    Approaches the unreal
    For those who think and feel
    In touch with some reality
    Beyond the gilded cage

    Cast in this unlikely role,
    Ill-equipped to act
    With insufficient tact
    One must put up barriers
    To keep oneself intact

    Living in the Limelight
    The universal dream
    For those who wish to seem

    Those who wish to be
    Must put aside the alienation
    Get on with the fascination
    The real relation
    The underlying theme

    Living in a fisheye lens
    Caught in the camera eye
    I have no heart to lie
    I can’t pretend a stranger
    Is a long-awaited friend

    All the world’s indeed a stage
    And we are merely players
    Performers and portrayers
    Each another’s audience
    Outside the gilded cage

    it changes every minute but the first thing that came to mind was marquee moon

    I remember how the darkness doubled
    I recall lightning struck itself
    I was listening, listening to the rain
    I was hearing, hearing something else

    Life in the hive puckered up my night
    The kiss of death, the embrace of life
    There I stand beneath the marquee moon
    Just waiting

    I spoke to a man down at the tracks
    And I asked him how he don't go mad
    He said "Look here junior, don't you be so happy.
    And for Heaven's sake, don't you be so sad."

    Life in the hive puckered up my night
    The kiss of death, the embrace of life
    There I stand beneath the marquee moon
    Hesitating

    Well a Cadillac, it pulled out of the graveyard
    Pulled up to me, all they said "get in" ("get in")
    Then the Cadillac, it puttered back into the graveyard
    Me, I got out again

    Life in the hive puckered up my night
    The kiss of death, the embrace of life
    There I stand bneath the marquee moon
    I ain't waiting, uh-uh

    I remember how the darkness doubled
    I recall lightning struck itself
    I was listening, listening to the rain
    I was hearing, hearing something else

    Every word of Modest Mouse - Float On

    Tbh I don't really focus on lyrics outside of rap, for other genres it's more of the feel and sound I pay attention to.

    I'll give you head till you're burning up
    Head till you get enough
    Head till your love is red
    Head love you till you're dead
