Favourite Line In A Matthew Good (band) Song

Recommended Posts

There's literally too many to list, so I'll just do the first one that came into my mind.


From Go Fly Blind: You can walk tragically into the distance, and I can stand here cryin in the rain, and if anyone asks you if it ever made me crazy just say I thought it was boring to be sane.

and how I feel is like a child in a foreign place

far too alone, far too alone to face the fear that I have to face

and how I feel is like a burning sun behind clouds of grey

far too alone, too far away

to say the words I need you to hear me say

-Break In the Rhythm


and all of Parable.

i like:


- "Today I'm leaving

This bullshit one horse town

Full of Cowboys and Indians

Who only have balls when there's a camera around" - A Long Way Down


- "It's all right now, take the world and make it yours again" - Symbolistic White Walls


- "Man makes god so god can make man

man makes the devil so that he can understand

why it is that every day,

everything always turns out this way" - Ommisions of the Omen

My favourite at least so far as the image it creates in my mind:


"I looked out over the bay at the water and the lights

I noticed we had gone to great lengths but not to great heights" - Dancing Invisible



I think I like that one because I remember staring across the Vancouver Bay for hours when I would visit. I remember one time we were in a hotel and I just looked out the window all night long, staring at the lights.

I love some of the lines already pointed out. I'm particularly partial to songs that work acoustically.


I would like to add:

Cross continents and oceans, transplanted the great divide, though the rookies they 'en't moved none.


What the hell is ZON?

I like the last part of Avalanche:


"This key is to your Kingdom, this key is to your heart... neither ones a doorway, but both of them a part... so one foot in front of the other"


Also, like someone else pointed out, i like very much the lyrics of the song "Parable"
