"There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup"
- Don't Dream It's Over, Crowded House

"Hear the sound of music drifting in the aisles
Elevator prozac stretching on for miles
The music of the future will not entertain
It's only meant to repress and neutralise your brain"
- The Sound Of Muzak, Porcupine Tree
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Just kidding. Here's a few of my favourites. Excluding U2, because I'm feeling a bit bored with U2 right now.

Joy Division - Atrocity Exhibition

"I was in heaven, I was in hell - believe in neither but fear 'em as well."
Modest Mouse - Doin' The Cockroach

"Please beware of them that stare, they'll only smile to see you wile your time away."
Nick Drake - Things Behind The Sun

"Big man, pig man! Ha ha, charade you are."
Pink Floyd - Pigs (Three Different Ones)

"The lunatic is on the grass."
Pink Floyd - Brain Damage

"Please could you stop the noise? I'm tryin' to get some rest...from all the unborn chicken voices in my head."
Radiohead - Paranoid Android

"I am the key to the lock in your house that keeps your toys in the basement."
Radiohead - Climbing Up The Walls

"Rows of houses are bearing down on me, I can feel their blue hands touching me."
Radiohead - Street Spirit

High above this road, filled with shadow and doubt"
