What's your favorite line from a song, and why?


I've never done a writer's block but I saw this in porcelain72's journal and lately I've been obsessed with the group Freakwater. They have some great lyrics, among other things. Here are a few of my favorites.

"Give her a cake, she's looking for a file. Give her a kiss, she'll suck the gold out of your mouth."

"Whiskey is not evil when it's sitting on the shelf."

"My baby's a swinger and he's hard to dodge, kicking up gravel by the motor lodge."

"I've been good and I've been good for nothing. I had it bad for something."

"I would trade everything I believe and keep no trick card up my sleeve just to know the angels hold you in their arms tonight."

"I won't have far to go when I go crazy."

And since it's the Rapture, here's an entire song:

Are you ready for your new home in the sky?
Think your luck will finally turn around the minute that you die?
And all your prophets who profit only from your fears
Will they stand by and hold your hand when the end is finally near?

Are you ready to claim your great reward?
To climb those shining stairs and shake hands with your Lord?
When you look down on those poor sinners such as I
Who missed our chance to be redeemed will your laughter drown our cries?

Are you ready to leave this sinful world?
Would you like to read your name when that great scroll is unfurled?
And if Jesus calls you home when that angel trumpet sounds
Won't you just leave me alone if I'm six feet under ground?

Are you ready for your new home in the sky?
Think your luck will finally turn around the minute that you die?
And all your prophets who profit only from your fears
Will they stand by and hold your hand when the end is finally near?

Are you ready?


..and finally, a video:
