Reply to "Great Lyrics"

Radiohead, Fake Plastic Trees:

"She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the 80s
But gravity always wins"

And IMO from one of the greatest songs ever written:

Procol Harum, A Whiter Shade of Pale:

"And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale"

And for PJ fans, Sirens lyrics always stick with me. Although, Off He Goes is my favorite song from them:

"It's a fragile thing, this life we lead.
If I think too much I can get overwhelmed by the grace
By which we live our lives with death over our shoulder

Want you to know that should I go,
I always loved you, held you high above, true.
I study your face, and the fear goes away"
