Genesis "The knife":
"Tell me my life is about to begin
Tell me that I am a hero,
Promise me all of your violent dreams
Light up your body with anger."

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

Hmmmm....nice to see this thread again.

I've been listening to some CDs I haven't played in a while and the lines that have stuck in my mind for a while now are:

"There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me. It's right for me and the word is love" - Yes, Time and a word.

You can't keep an old hippy down....

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

Haven't read all the entries in this interesting thread, so perhaps this has been entered already:

From King Crimson's Islands

"Beneath the wind-turned wave
Infinite peace...
Islands join hands
'neathe heaven's sea".

Just love that image.

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

Seeing as how what might seem important to me might not seem important to you and vice versa, here's mine...

"My zero to your power of ten equals nothing at all". Jethro Tull.

(sorry if this was in a previous thread,no time to go through them all)

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

Seems I missed this thread first time around, and this may have already been posted, but you gotta consider Tull:

"So you ride yourselves over the fields
and you make all your animal deals
and your wise men don't know how it feels
to be thick as a brick."

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

I'm always inspired by this searing irony in Yes' Relayer:

Listen your friends have been broken
They tell us of your poison
Now we know
Kill them give them as they give us
Slay them burn their children's laughter
On to Hell

Anyway, I'm not sure what's important to others, but here's some that hit me right:

"And all your money, won't another minute buy" ...Kansas

"You can go sleep at home tonight, if you can get up and walk away"...Who

"Sadder still to watch it die, than never to have known it".....Rush

"Brave the knife to make em bigger, take a pill to make it harder, suck the fat then run the treadmill, give them toys for time...buy the land then pour the concrete, drive the car but leave the kiddies, break their bones then ask forgiveness, pose while they're in rags"...Salem Hill (So Human)
Sometimes when I look at a post an old page comes up. This was from July 2006, so I think I'll just keep it - saves me the trouble of thinking again!

Dino, Ian's got a million great lines, is true (even Kissing Willie )

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

One of my favorite Andersonisms has always been this one.


Get the idea cross around the track
Underneath the flank of a thoroughbred racing chaser
Getting the feel as a river flows
Would you like to go n' shoot the mountain masses
And here you stand no taller than the grass sees
And should you really chase so hard
The truth of sport plays rings around you

Going for the one
Going for the one



Even for those who speak Jonish, I think this one can be a difficult decipher.

Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid,
Wipes his gun-he's forgotten what he did,
And the lamb lies down on Broadway.

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

It can't be a list unless you put in some old Marillion

And so as I patrol in the valley of the shadow of the Tricolour I must fear evil
For I am but mortal and mortals can only die
Asking questions, pleading answers from the nameless faceless watchers
That parade the carpeted corridors of Whitehall
Who orders desecration, mutilation, verbal masturbation in the guarded bureaucratic wombs
Minister, Minister care for your children
Order them not into damnation
To eliminate those who would trespass against you
For whose is the kingdom, the power, the glory for ever and ever
Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

"Halt who goes there!" - " Death!!"
"Approach ... friend"

Re: The most important sentences in prog rock lyrics

Added another one before work Sort of rings true this day and age

"Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth,
Crawling out of dirty holes, their morals, their morals disappear."

Yes-Yours Is No Disgrace
