Favourite Blink Lyric of all time?

Recommended Posts

Tom's: Can you comfort yourself with a sense of revenge? Are you leaving me here with the taste of the end?

Mark's: I'll take what you're willing to give and I'll teach myself to live with a walk-on part of a background shot from a movie I'm not in

 Apple shampoo is such a great song. One of mine is Pathetic - “Don't pull me down, this is where I belong. I think I'm different, but I'm the same and I'm wrong.” Also pretty much all of Waggy.

Going Away to College always reminds me of a good time and I personally love these lines. So simple yet so blink.

I haven't been this scared in a long time
And I'm so unprepared so here's your valentine
Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody
This world's an ugly place, but you're so beautiful to me

I can't wait 'til I'm off of work
I'll meet my friends at the Target curb

Fucking phenomenal lyrics right there nqat

Pretty damn good, but doesn't quite compare to:

"Mom and dad they quite don't understand it, all the kids they laugh as if they planned it, why do girls want to pierce their nose and walk around in torn panty hose OoOoh Yaaaaa"

Both of those songs fucking suck, no need to diss one to prop up the other

Both great tunes if you ask me, Parking Lot just has much better lyrics

"I'm talking to the ceiling, my life just lost all meaning"

"Don't pull me down this is where I belong. 
I think I'm different but I'm the same and I'm wrong"

"Where do we go (life's temporary)

After we're gone (like new years resolutions)
Why is this hard (do you recognize me)
I know I'm wrong (but I can't help believing)

I'm so lost
I'm barely here
I wish I could explain myself
But words escape me"

"You seemed so sweet at the start
But the start's all wrong
You say you speak from your heart
But your heart's all gone"

"We'll have the time of our lives, although we're dying inside"

Can you comfort yourself with a sense of revenge?
Are you leaving me here with a taste of the end?

I never needed to hear all of the pain and the fear
Your secrets filled up my ears like the ocean blue
I never wanted to know how deep these cuts on you go
And like a river they flow to the ocean blue (my favourite Skiba moment in blink)

Your hollow accusations no one ever hears
Your wounded sense of pride, a guilty souvenir
All your protests and vacant excuses ring insincere
I just wanna find a car to overturn
I just wanna light a fire to watch it burn
Now we're past the point of no return and no one is here

Can we learn to get by if we learn to have scars
If we learn to forgive and accept who we are (Tom nailed it lyrically with this whole song IMO)

Have your fill of disappointment
Two more years of unemployment (Not the greatest lyric but definitely one of my favourites and it's deeply personal to Mark as we all know)

I haven't been this scared in a long time
And I''m so unprepared, so here's your valentine
Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody
This world's an ugly place but you're so beautiful to me

Blackjack and architect
Let's drink ourselves to death
The crimes of everyone passed down from father to son
Hopeless and destitute
Destroyed my gratitude
Your strongest lines of defence are all just self inflicted wounds

Bite your lips, your word's a robbery
Do you grin inside, you're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kinda think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end is not too far away
Did you know, I'm here to stay

Stop banging away on my kaleidoscope
Stop draining the colour out of my scene
Just play me something I can dance to
I can dance to anything you wanna sing

I never thought I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest who'd have known?
I trace the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
I took my time, I hurried up
The choice was mine I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed to go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

This place was never the same again
After you came and went
How can you say you meant anything different
To anyone standing alone
On the street with a cigarette
On the first night we met
Look to the past
And remember her smile
And maybe tonight
I can breathe for a while
I'm not in the seat
I think I'm falling asleep
But then all that it means is
I'll always be dreaming of you

Don't waste your time on me, you're already the voice inside my head
Don't waste your time on me, you're already the voice inside my head

You say you want to take off your shoes, and walk barefoot down the street, just to be the things that you can be, just live for one more week

Are we alone, do you feel it? So lost and disillusioned

This place, void of all passion, if you can imagine, it's easy if you try

Just about done with your butt, we'll let you know, hey!

Nearly all of the lyrics from TOYPAJ suck I think. It's why I don't rate that as a top blink album and laugh whenever people try to compare California to that, because they're both as bad as each other. They're no Enema & Dude Ranch when it comes to lyrics. I'll say California has the edge lyrically over TOYPAJ now and then though but TOYPAJ instrumentally kicks California out of the water. It's an amazing album when it comes to instruments and melodies. I do like Mark's lyrics in the bridge of the Rock Show and his verses in STFTK though.

I think Anthem Part Two's chorus is great too if you try not to think of the shitty lyrics from the verses.

We really need to see this through
We never wanted to be abused
We'll never give up, it's no use
If we're fucked up, you're to blame

They could've been really deep and dark lyrics (simple but effective too) about actual abuse and not that teenage politics crap they were trying to talk about.

Sort of an unconventional pick, but "I guess this is growing up" turned out to be such a perfect summation of the band and the subject their lyrics all kinda revolved around for most of their career. The struggles and fun and shittiness and weirdness and hilarity and sadness of navigating the adult world when you still feel more like a stupid kid.

Oh, how I wish that
They would last
Moments of peace that
Just slip through me so fast
Just when I think that
They are gonna stay
Everything inside me
Just starts fading away
Sometimes it seems
Like all I hope for
Just gets thrown
Down on the floor
And then it seems like
You don't love me anymore
Sometimes I wish that
I could run away
Sometimes I wish
I just had something to say

or:

You're gonna drown in the mess you make
Your self-inflicted hate
You turn your back on the friends you lose
When they don't follow all your rules

But people are what they wanna be
They're not lemmings to the sea
Maybe it's time you looked at yourself
And stop blaming life on someone else

Both lyrics are equally terrible.

You won't find me trying to defend either of them!

Both bad lyrics. Here's a big difference. Being  25 instead of 40.
