    Mine:

    My shadow's
    Shedding skin and
    I've been picking
    Scabs again.
    I'm down
    Digging through
    My old muscles
    Looking for a clue.
    I've been crawling on my belly
    Clearing out what could've been.
    I've been wallowing in my own confused
    And insecure delusions
    For a piece to cross me over
    Or a word to guide me in.
    I wanna feel the changes coming down.
    I wanna know what I've been hiding in

    My sinful glare at nothing holds thoughts of death behind it
    Skeletons in my mind commence tearing at my sanity
    Vessels in my brain carry death until my birth
    Come and die with me forever
    Share insanity

    Do you want to die!

    The waves of blood are rushing near, pounding at the walls of lies
    Turning off my sanity, reaching back into my mind
    Non-rising body from the grave showing new reality
    What I am, what I want, I'm only after death

    Too many to name. This one's in my head today:

    Empty playgrounds of the living
    Lonely swingsets of the dead
    It must be nice in heaven to have an angel
    To heal the subtle silence in your head
    ....
    Everything is gone
    Everything's just fine
    The monkey bars live lightning
    And the slide takes me away
    From evil looks and bloodshot eyes
    Empty playgrounds of the living
    Lonely swingsets of the dead

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Fools", said I, "You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you"
    But my words, like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed
    In the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls"
    And whispered in the sounds of silence

    Choices always were a problem for you.
    What you need is someone strong to guide you.
    Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow,
    what you need is someone strong to guide you..
    like me, like me, like me, like me
    If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me.
    Now don't judge or question.
    You are broken now, but faith can heal you.
    Just do everything I tell you to do.
    Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
    What you need is someone strong to guide you.
    Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
    Let me lay my holy hand upon you.

    The house next door to me's been sold to A group of lovely people.
    They claim to be wild Indians from the plains.
    Oh, but they ain't a-shuckin' me -- they're colored
    people.
    We'll make "Cowboys and A group of lovely people," our new game.

    Last night when I come home, I's warmly greeted.
    But not by my sweet wife sayin', "Hello, Dear."
    Instead it was, "Hello, duh. What mamma-jamma?"
    Says, "How does you like us dark folks livin' here?"

    [Instrumental break.]
    (From: http://www.elyrics.net)

    I'd sell my house, but I ain't had no offers.
    Though I paid twenty-thousand, I'd take two.
    'Cause this Reggie crap's done killed all my red roses.
    And my violets turned black instead of blue.

    Last night the N-A-A-C-P came a-callin'.
    I didn't know what it was all about.
    Oh, but it didn't take me long to understand them.
    When they said, "Won't you kindly move your white butt
    out."

    You used me like an ashtray heart
    Case of the punks
    Right from the start
    I feel like a glass shrimp in a pink panty
    With a saccharine chaperone
    Make invalids out of supermen
    Call in a "shrink"
    And pick you up in a girdle
    You used me like an ashtray heart
    Right from the start
    Case of the punks
    Another day, another way
    Somebody's had too much to think
    Open up another case of the punks
    Each pillow is touted like a rock
    The mother / father figure
    Somebody's had too much to think
    Send your mother home your navel
    Case of the punks
    New hearts to the dining rooms
    Violet heart cake
    Dissolve in new cards, boards, throats, underwear
    Ashtray heart
    You picked me out, brushed me off
    Crushed me while I was burning out
    Then you picked me out
    Like an ashtray heart
    Hid behind the curtain
    Waited for me to go out
    A man on a porcupine fence
    Used me for an ashtray heart
    Hit me where the lover hangs out
    Stood behind the curtain
    While they crushed me out
    You used me for an ashtray heart
    You looked in the window when I went out
    You used me like an ashtray heart
