    I always loved these:

    We see a man preaching the word of god
    provin to be a fraud
    his own church applauds
    stop lookin out start lookin in
    be your own best friend stand up and say HEY
    this is mine


    the chorus to 5150

    Cool topic!

    In A Simple Rhyme

    Well, ain't life grand when ya finally hit it?
    I'm always a sucker for a real good time
    Woke up in life, found I almost missed it
    Ain't I glad that love is blind?

    Judgement Day

    I done most anything, keep 'em doin' anything 'cause
    Sometimes I just wanna do nothin'
    Nothin' lost, so tell me how can I lose?
    When I'm startin' off with nothin'

    Dirty Water Dog

    I don't belong to any race
    Pledge allegiance to a place
    No borderline in the sand I'd trace
    I'm just a sucker for a pretty face

    Fire In the Hole

    Rudder of ship, which sets the course
    Does not the bit, bridle the horse
    Great is the forest, set by a small flame
    Like a tongue on fire, no one can tame

    Here's some of my favorites,

    I can see you don't know which way to turn
    but the sun still shines
    Don't you know you can dance with me anytime?

    You can change your friends, your place in life, you can change your mind
    we can change the things we say and do anytime

    Now what you think is nothin, might be somethin after all -simple, but I like it!

    i'm with you glenn

    Secrets has gotta be hands-down Dave at his best. the lyrics don't make much sense but are just sewn together so amazingly that it's just plan simple poetic.

    i remember reading somewhere Dave was inspired by greeting cards they sell on Indian revservations.

    "At night I walk the stinkin' streets
    and see the crazies on my block.
    I see the same ol' faces and I hear
    that same ol' talk."

    "Nobody rules these streets at night but me!
    The atomic punk!"

    These two songs are similar in their words.
    Some of the best words AND guitar work!

    Ok dude. Just makin sure.

    Mine are in no particular order....

    the chorus to 5150

    "Well I, I always heard it said
    That the truth will set you free
    Woman with the way you do
    Well how can I believe?
    A smokin' mountain got to blow
    I'm the livin' proof
    Well, right now I think it's time

    To Tell the Truth, baby
    (Time to tell the truth)
    Yeah, you got to try
    Stop lying baby
    (Time to tell the truth)

    Doin' time behind these bedroom walls
    Blink of an eye another shooting star falls, yeah
    Tried to tell you babe
    But you don't want to hear me
    Take one good look
    These are tears of fury

    Well, then let it show
    A big catastrophe, yeah yeah
    Now I don't wanna know
    Your social activities

    If the world loves a bad guy
    Well, then, how 'bout the doubt
    I was first one to get in
    Now I'm the last one out
    Profess to love me, babe
    Then, why can't I tell?
    All you do is use me babe
    You're lying to yourself
    I think it's time..."
