    What are the worst lyrics in a song ever, as in they don't make any sense.

    #1 Should go to Jefferson Airplane/Starship -We Built This City

    We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll
    Built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll
    ....
    Moscone plays the mambo, listen to the radio, don't you remember
    We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll
    ...
    Police have got the choke hold, oh, [but] we just lost the beat
    ...
    Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars
    --------

    #2 Should go to "It's Raining Man"
    ^^I laugh everytime I hear this song

    ...Humidity is risin (Ooh, risin)
    ...Cause tonight for the first time (First time)
    Just about half past ten (Half past te-en)
    For the first time in history
    Its gonna start raining men (Start raining men)
    ...Im gonna go out, Im gonna let myself get, Absolutely soakin' wet
    ...od bless Mother Nature, Shes a single woman too
    She took on the heavens, And she did what she had to do-hoo

    Number 1 to me makes very little sense. Number 2 is just strange.

    How about Bonnie Tyler's 'Total Eclipse of the Heart'?

    "Turn Around Bright Eyes"? Gimme a break! :D :cool:

    At least in the Starship version, I thought these lyrics were...

    Marconi plays the mambo -- listen to the radio.

    (Marconi was one of the inventors of the radio).

    :)

    Oh, yes, and I will go with Poison: Like gasoline, you want to pump me. :D

    music is music, just sit back enjoy......
    to me, the only music to "read into" is jazz
    like transcribing and transposition
    which transcribing is quite hard

    James Blunt's got a monopoly on this stuff.


    Laughable:

    Did I disappoint you or let you down?
    Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?​

    Creepy:

    So I took what's mine by eternal right
    Took your soul out into the night​

    Just plain meaningless:

    My life is brilliant
    My love is pure
    I saw an angel
    Of that I'm sure
    She smiled at me on the subway
    She was with another man
    But I won't lose no sleep on that
    'Cause I've got a plan​

    You'll get competition. So many bad lyrics, so little time.

    This one always makes my teeth itch:

    Some places they get mildew and others get too hot.
    Some places are so damp that everything you've got just rots.
    All kinds of condensation, direct result of rain,
    they're not much compensation when everything's been stained.
    Some have sentimental value that cannot be erased.
    Go store it in a cool dry place.

    Yea I thought it was Marconi, but I copied the lyrics from a site.

    That is the greatest song since..... EVER. Don't diss it LOL :)


    And Total Eclipse of the heart makes sense, the music video makes none what so ever.

    "Under a Glass Moon" by Dream Theater
    They're awesome musicians but man, they've written some awful lyrics


    Tell me
    Remind me
    Chase the water racing from the sky
    Always beside me
    Taste the memories running from my eyes
    Nervous flashlights scan my dreams
    Liquid shadows silence their screams
    I smile at the moon
    Chasing water from the sky
    I argue with the clouds
    Stealing beauty from my eyes

    Outside the soundness of your mind
    Bathing your soul in silver tears
    Beneath a blackened summer sky
    Praying for time to disappear

    Beneath a summer sky
    Under glass moonlight
    Night awaits the lamb's arrival
    Liquid shadows crawl
    Silver teardrops fall
    The bride subsides to her survival

    By your hand
    I've awakened
    Bear this honor in my name

    I don't get it...you're saying all the lyrics in all of these songs rankle you? Okay, some of them I personally see, but as a group, it's a strange set to be angry about. ;)

    The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
    The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
    First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
    First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
    The caterpillar sheds his skin to find the butterfly within.
    Caterpillar sheds his skin to find the butterfly within.
    First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
    First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain.
    Oh Juanita! Oh Juanita! Oh Juanita, I call your name.
    Oh, the snow will be a blinding sight to see as it lies on yonder hillside.
    The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.

    Here's my nominee for the most original, thought-provoking, and emotionally stimulating song of my generation.

    My hero, Ashlee Simpson. The preteen sleaze queen.

    I don't know who it is (mainly because I don't listen to ****** country music) but one verse goes:

    "I've got a barbecue stain on my white t-shirt..."

    Whoever sings this: DIE. No, seriously, please just kill yourself for being part of the degradation of Country music, and for writing like a five year old.

    Johnny Cash is rolling in his grave...

    I think the creepiest lyrics belong to The Ides of March for Vehicle.

    Any verse of ANY SONG by Fallout Boy, Yellowcard or any EMO band/my father never hugged me crybabies out there.

    We're going down, down, in an earlier round
    and sugar we're going down swinging
    i'll be your number one with a bullet
    a loaded God complex, cock it and pull it. :D

    Those bands can be really obnoxious. I do like that song, however... to each his own I guess.
