Favourite Lyric?

Most of you have been listening to the new album for some time now so I'm sure you've got some lyrics already that you love (or loath).

Probably not a common choice: "Every beauty needs to go out with an idiot / How can you stand next to the truth and not see it?" from IGCIIDGCT

Favourite lyric: "The worst of us are a long drawn-out confession /
The best of us are geniuses of compression"
from COL

Just a couple:


Infinity is a great place to start

Time is irrelevant, it's not linear, then she put her tongue in my ear OOOOOH

My first cry, it was a joyful noise!


Fez/Being Born - the whole thing.

The roar that lies on the other side of silence

We are people borne of sound

If found grace inside a sound, I found grace, it's all I found

Stop helping God across the road like a little old lady.

I was punching in the numbers at the ATM machine. I did not notice the passersby and they did not notice me.

"Every day I die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I have to find the courage
To walk out into the street
With arms out
Got a love you can’t defeat
Neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need"
From Breathe

Yeah when I first heard this it kinda jarred but on reflection i think that the ATM machine can be seen as a symbol of materialism and how this person is quite taken in or over by making money or the material world and then he has his epiphany and moves towards spirituality.

Just a thought.

I like that one too. And this:

The right to be ridiculous is something I hold dear

My favorite, not sure why exactly but I've really loved it from the first time I heard the song.

The worst of us are a long, drawn out confession
The rest of us are geniuses of compression.
You say you're not gonna leave the truth alone
I'm here 'cause I don't wanna go home.

Choose your enemies carefully 'cause they will define you
Make them interesting, 'cause in some ways they will mind you
They're not there in the beginning but when your story ends
Gonna last with you longer than your friends
