What I used to be will pass away and then you'll see that all I want now is happiness for you and me. -Elliott Smith

A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

-- Stephen Crane

A Poison Tree, William Blake

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine.
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

I don't think Ok Go gets enough credit for thier humorous and intelligent lyricism:

The demon's in the design; seemed like a good idea at the time. How it all went down, only Pilate knows - the only thing I ever asked of him was when the bars were closed.

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
