Carcass lyrics on the whole are MUCH better written than Cannibal Corpse. Now if we're talking "Descanting the Insalubrious"-era Carcass, then there are a ton of bad lyrics. On that album, there are numerous instances where they just string together a bunch of words that do not belong together.

Nonono. I believe I've found the winner.

Britney Spears - Do Somethin'

Do you feel this
I know you feel this
Are you ready
I dont think so

Somebody give me my truck
So I can ride on the clouds
So I can turn up the bass like

Somebody pass my guitar
So I can look like a star
And spend this cash like

Whatcha gonna do when the crowd goes ayo?
Why ya'll standin on the wall?
Music`s startin everywhere
So why dont u just move along

I see your looking at me
Like i'm some kind of freak
Get up outta your seat
Why dont you do somethin'?

I see your looking at me
Like I got what you need
Get up outta your seat
Why dont ya do somethin'?

now your all in my grill
cuz i say what i feel
only rock to whats real
never gonna bump bump
but i cant do that with you
only here with my crew
you can roll if you can
don`t be a punk punk

whatcha gonna do
when the crowd goes ayo?
why ya'll standin on the wall?
music startin everywhere
so why don`t you just move along?

I see your looking at me
like im some kind of freak
get up out your seat
why dont you do somethin'?

na na na na na na na na na na na
uh huh
na na na na na na na na na na na

I see you looking over here
can't you tell im having fun
if you know like I know
you would stop!
Starin at us
Wow
get your own space
and do somethin'

FREAK
do somethin'
oww
why don`t you do somethin'



Note: All of the "Do Somethin"s are pronounced "Do Suh In." Just for reference.

A while ago a radio station here (JJJ for you Aussies) had a phone in competition for anyone who could do better than the abovementioned "lyrics". My fave:

A train
Going to Balmain
And coming back again
Central Station

If that aint poetry, I don't know what is.

This is indeed horrible. Can you imagine these lyrics in 'Elevation'? Bono could never write anything this bad. Just look at the line "you can roll if you can". Nice one.

Can anyone please explain why these lyrics are so bad? It must be the 'mole, living in a hole' line, because the rest is just fine. And even the 'mole' line is somewhere between average and fair. Certainly not the abomination it's made out to be.

Exactly how I've felt about the vast amount of other songs people have posted on here.

It's all relative. If its ok for U2 to make songs that "werent supposed to have good lyrics", why is it not for everyone else?

I don't think Elevation has bad lyrics....they are fun lyrics....just kinda fun to shout them out loud....i think it takes some kind of genius to have yeahs and ooooohs in the proper places in songs

There is a song that gets constant radio attention despite its cookie-cutter sound and awful lyrics. This song is "Cold" by Crossfade, and it is the bane of my existence.

Looking back at me I see
That I never really got it right
I never stopped to think of you
I'm always wrapped up in
Things I cannnot win
You are the antidote that gets me by
Something strong
Like a drug that gets me high

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold to you

And I'm sorry about all the lies
Maybe in a different light
You could see me stand on my own again
Cause now i can see
You were the antidote that got me by
Something strong like a drug that got me high
I never meant to be so cold

I never really wanted you to see
The screwed up side of me that I keep
Locked inside of me so deep
It always seems to get to me
I never really wanted you to go
So many things you should have known
I guess for me theres just no hope
I never meant to be so cold


I just threw up in my mouth after reading it again.
