    I know it’s a cover, I prefer the version of The Sound Of Silence by Disturbed

    the lyric that resonates with me is:

    “Hear my words that I might teach you,
    take my arms that I might reach you”

    I was born on the back streets
    On the rotten side of town
    I never had me nothin'
    Just people puttin' me down
    Living on the dark side
    Across the railroad track
    Leaving wasn't easy
    But I'm never going back

    Now what's the good of two strong legs

    If you only run away?
    And what use is the finest voice
    If you've nothing good to say?

    And what good is strength and muscle
    If you only push and shove?
    And what's the use of two good ears
    If you can't hear those you love?
    Between those who use their neighbours
    And those who use a cane
    Between those in constant power
    And those in constant pain
    Between those who run to evil
    And those who cannot run
    Tell me which ones are the cripples
    And which ones touch the sun?

    I love that song, was melted when I heard it played live.

    It's not just what you're born with
    It's what you choose to bear
    It's not how big your share is
    It's how much you can share
    It's not the fights you dreamed of
    It's those you really fought {ah-wah}
    It's not what you've been given
    It's what you do with what you've got

    Not really inspiring but memorable from Bowie’s track Five Years.

    I walk in Holyrood Park quite often, and when I reach the crest of the hill on a sunny day and see Edinburgh below, shining in the sun, this lyric often comes to mind. I have no idea what it means, but it certainly resonates.

    ETA: I looked it up, and it seems that he's talking about a type of guitar, called a National guitar. They make metal bodied guitars, like the one on the cover of Brothers In Arms. Hence, "shining".

    Also ETA: other lines in that same song are also worthy of note:

    And I see losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Well, everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody feels the wind blow

    Whilst it's a great line, the cynic in me wonders who he stole it from.😁

    I'm currently reading 2 books about musicians, both of which are very critical of his "opportunism".

    Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude.

    Always thought that was a beautifully written lyric from That’s Enrertainment.

    Good explanation. I never thought of that. I always thought that Paul Simon was comparing the splayed out shapes of the river delta with the splayed out strings of the head of a guitar.

    That's a great track. B side to go let it out which went to number 1 but it should have made SOTSOG undoubtedly. Liams vocals are almost perfect.

    Agree, should have made the final cut for SOTSOG instead of tracks like Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is and Who Feels Love.

    That's part of what made oasis so good, there are countless B sides that are better than the album tracks, Noel knew exactly what he was up to in that regard

    Couple of old favs there but ‘fade away’ the one for me.

    Not the lyrics as a such but the song as a whole. Hazel O'connor - Will You. Unbelievable song and doesn't get enough air play. I'll need to watch the film Breaking Glass again with her in it.

    I like my music but, what is music inspiring you to do? I'm not getting it. 🤔

    Wouldn't say any lyrics have inspired me (there used to be a general lyrics thread on here but I couldn't find it) but this is genius and a gorgeous tune, complete with a wee bit of Waterloo Sunset at the end of the last verse.

    Famous Tracheotomies by Okkervil River

    When I had my tracheotomy
    I was blue and had stopped breathing
    There was something wrong with me
    Doctors cut through the cartilage and skin
    At the bottom of my throat
    And then they snaked that trach tube in
    And I was one and a half
    I was my parents only kid
    And they had lost two before that
    And growing up, I always knew how close I'd come
    Well, that must have been scary, Mom

    Gary Coleman, he was "Arnold" on TV
    Well, I grew up watching him and Conrad Bain and Kimberly
    It turns out that he had a trach scar too
    Where they cut into his throat
    And then they threaded that tube through
    But that was much later on
    In the year that he turned forty when his fanbase was all gone
    And his health was so touch-and-go
    His girlfriend proposed
    But they broke up on a TV show

    Mary Wells, she was known as Motown's Queen
    But laryngeal cancer left her unable to sing
    They tried radiation, multiple surgeries
    But she didn't have insurance and lost almost everything
    Poor thing
    But Diana Ross helped with her bills
    Aretha Franklin tried her very best to help out Mary Wells
    And Dionne Warwick did all she could do
    And Mary Wells, she pulled through
    For one more year or two

    Dylan Thomas looked completely pale and weak
    On a trip to New York City to promote his poetry
    Three straight days of drinking out in Greenwich and Chelsea
    He was taken to the hospital, turned blue and not breathing
    And Caitlin Thomas said
    When she walked into St Vincent's
    Is the bloody man dead yet?
    And later that day she got so drunk she was restrained
    And her husband slipped away

    Ray Davies had a tracheotomy
    He was at St. Thomas' Hospital in London, aged thirteen
    And during his long recovery
    Nurses put him in a wheelchair
    And they'd wheel him out onto a balcony (on a balcony)
    And down that evening sun did sink
    Painting London and the river and that freaked-out future Kink
    Waterloo lit up for one sick kid
    And, at 23, he recorded a song about it

    Old lyrics, but relevant today:

    A curse upon you men of war with gun or pen in hand
    Your power sought or won or bought
    Your castles made of sand
    You always have "good reason" to take more than you need
    Your hearts are filled with hatred and your minds are filled with greed

    Bring 'em down.
