Great lines in Rock

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

There's an engineer on that long black train

Let me ride on that long black train

Oh. Look! A Pharisaical-Orthodox-Latin-Rite dodge on what the meaning of is, is.

You are either brilliantly gifted in philosophical debate or, a douchbag.

I like my country rocking', how 'bout you?

Into the corner, mister. 15 minutes. Yes, you have to wear the hat. What good is it if you don't wear the hat?
Since the majority of what is played on a “country station” in 2018 sounds much like 1990s pop music; I can see your confusion.

You see, I never thought I would see the day that The Eagles would be played on a country station, but it happens.

I’m not sure where the line is, but I’m thinking Mr. Turner probably thinks of himself as closer to Mr. Cash or Mr. Twitty than Mr. Bono (?) or Mr. Hagar.

Do not turn your face towards me
Confronting me with my loneliness
You are in a forest unknown
The secret orchard
And your voice is vast and achromatic
But still so precious

The percentage you're paying is too high priced
While you're living beyond all your means
And the man in the suit has just bought a new car
From the profit he's made on your dreams

I will seek refuge in the woods
To be alone to pray
Just as the Christ, who often withdrew
Unto the mountains
Beside the streams
Into the forest
Among the trees
In His creation I find peace
And pray

Not Rock but Western:
"Sit tall in the saddle, Hold your head up high Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky And live like you ain't afraid to die And don't be scared, just enjoy your ride" From "The Ride" by the late Chris Ledoux. Ed, Moscow, Idaho
"What doesn't kill you, gives you a lot of unhealthy coping mechanisms and a really dark sense of humor."

God save the child who rings that bell
I may have one good ring baby, you can't tell
One watch by night, one watch by day
If you get confused just listen to the music play

If I'm not blind why can't I see

There's a hole in my heart
That can only be filled by you

I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
But my guitar couldn't hold you so I split the band
Love lies bleeding in my hands

"Don't wanna be alone but I love my girl at home
I remember what she said (what she said)
She said, "my, my, my, don't tell lies, keep fidelity in your head
My my my, don't tell lies, when you're done you should go to bed
Don't say hi, like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead and you're dead"

But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery
All the greenery is comin' down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you're part of the furniture
Oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice

Decide what to be
And go be it.-
The Avett Brothers - Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise

When at first I learned to speak.
I used all my words to fight.
With him and her and you and me.
Ah, but it's just a waste of time.
Yeah it's such a waste of time.
The Avett Brothers - I and Love and You

That woman she's got eyes that shine.
Like a pair of stolen polished dimes.
The Avett Brothers - I and Love and You

Last night I dreamt the whole night long
I woke with a head full of songs
I spent the whole day
I wrote 'em down, but it's a shame
Tonight I'll burn the lyrics
'Cause every chorus was your name

One of my favorites. Used to sing it to my babies instead of lullabies.
But, my friends and I always had a problem with that line. He must have had a telephone, otherwise I have not seen catfish jumping naturally.
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal

'If I don't see you no more in this world, I'll see you in the next, and don't be late" ~ Jimi Hendrix, Voodoo Child

I quoted this to my oldest brother the last time I saw him and I had no idea how prophetic it would be.
"At present we're on the wrong side of the door. But all the pages of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so." ~ C.S. Lewis
