Favourite Blink Lyric of all time?

Recommended Posts

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

Because near 30 year olds totez relate to songs about fitting in in High School and lashing out against mom and dad more than 40 year olds.

Tom was 25 when he wrote Give Me One Good Reason, Feldmann was 50 when he wrote Parking Lot.  It's a huge difference.

Can we just have one blink-related thread on here that doesn't descend into pointlessly cherrypicking lyrics for the 475th time? Is that too much to ask people?

Could also argue Tom wasn't mentally grown up either. 25 year old Tom mentally was 18-20. He never really had the chance to experience growing up the way most normal teenagers do. He was kicked out of high school and was constantly touring with blink in his late teens too. That's not to defend TOYPAJ though. That album sucks lyrically anyway.

Blink should be looking at Enema & Dude Ranch when it comes to them kinda lyrics. Or even +44 with Cliff Diving & Baby Come On.

25 year old actors play high schoolers in TV shows, it's in part because they have perspective/experience now.  It's still lame but forgiveable.  Being 45-50 writing it is not, and is wrong for many reasons.

Favorite Feldmann lyric of all time??

 

"Living for the paycheck, dying for the weekend
Take another Xanax, cheating on your girlfriend"

No but

"Whoaa ohh oh"

But really

"Don't wake me up before you leave.
Is there the slightest trace of what you once believed?
I feel your hand unlock the door
Leaving fingerprints of water in the oil"

"Sometimes I sit at home and
Wonder if she's sitting at home
Thinking of me and wondering if I'm
Sitting at home, thinking about her
Or am I just wasting my time"

 

"And it's happened once again
I'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands
Sees through the master plan

But everybody's gone
And I've been here for too long
To face this on my own
Well I guess this is growing up"

"I'm sick of always hearing
All the sad songs on the radio
All day it is there to remind an over sensitive guy
That he's lost and alone, yeah"

 

"Please stay until I'm gone
I'm here hold on to me I'm right here
Waiting and take
My one last breath, and don't forget
That I will be right here
Waiting"

 

 

I could keep going, but this post is long enough as it is.

Yeah that's true too. That's how I feel about TOYPAJ. Crap lyrics but I can forgive Tom for it. Can't forgive blink so much for songs like Parking Lot & Wildfire. California definitely has some great lyrics here and there though. I like San Diego, 6/8, Hey I'm Sorry & Long Lost Feeling when it comes to lyrics though.

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

 

this. GATC’s chorus takes the cake for me as my top blink lyrics. the band could be wacky, but at their core they were unabashedly sentimental. take for example wasting time: “maybe if i act real tough / she’d let me hold her hand”. it’s not a far cry from the beatles’ i wanna hold your hand, just has other lyrics about farting lol

heres some more of mine:

”this room is bored of rehearsal, im sick of the boundaries, i miss you so much”

“You're cold with disappointment / While I'm drowning in the next room / The last contagious victim of this plague between us / i’m sick with apprehension / I'm crippled from exhaustion / And I dread the moment when you finally come to kill me”

all of go is really really great too

Stockholm Syndrom.

“You're cold with disappointment,
While I'm drowning in the next room.
The last contagious victim of this plague between us.
I'm sick with apprehension,
I'm crippled from exhaustion,
And I dread the moment when you finally come to kill me”

I made a mistake, I'm sorry. I've let you down.

Also Depression is just a sarcastic state of mind. I feel like this is a Bad Religion reference, but I'm not sure. 

always been one of my favourites.
