    The poetic stuff , you know...

    "I wore a minotaur's mask and I live among cows"... Grant Lee Buffalo. I always wonder about this one...

      When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
      Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
      But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
      When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry.

      Folsom Prison, Johnny Cash.

        You get nothing back for all you've saved, just eternity in a spacious grave.

            I was a doctor, a lawyer, a senator's son
            Brad Pitt's bother and a man on the run
            anything I thought would get the job done

            Out last night -- Kenny Chesney

            Been there :biglaugh:
            I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. - Thomas Edison

              "For long you live and high you fly
              And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
              And all you touch and all you see
              Is all your life will ever be."

              Breathe - Pink Floyd

                Echoes of the Broadway Everglades,
                With her mythical madonnas still walking in their shades:
                Lenny Bruce, declares a truce and plays his other hand.
                Marshall McLuhan, casual viewin', head buried in the sand.
                Sirens on the rooftops wailing, but there's no ship sailing.
                Groucho, with his movies trailing, stands alone with his punchline failing.
                Klu Klux Klan serve hot soul food and the band plays 'In the Mood'
                The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand, there's a smell of
                peach blossom and bitter almonde.
                Caryl Chessman sniffs the air and leads the parade, he know in a scent,
                you can bottle all you made.
                There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes, smiling at the majorettes
                smoking Winston Cigarettes.
                And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home
                with needles; needles and pins.

                Anyone care to guess this one??? No search engines!!! :whoopie:

                      Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed, cause we were barely 17 and we were barely dressed. (I can see paradise by the dashboard lights.)

                        "Ah, but maybe it's the way you were taught
                        Or maybe it's the way we fought
                        But a smile never grins without tears to begin
                        For each kiss is a cry we all lost"

                            "Stood still on a highway
                            I saw a woman
                            By the side of the road
                            With a face that I knew like my own
                            Reflected in my window
                            Well she walked up to my quarterlight
                            And she bent down real slow
                            A fearful pressure paralyzed me
                            In my shadow
                            She said son what are you doing here
                            My fear for you has turned me in my grave
                            I said Mama I come to the valley of the rich
                            Myself to sell
                            She said son this is the road to hell"
