Writer's Block: “We built this city on rock and roll”

What are your favorite song lyrics, and why?


"What is the law?
NO SPILL BLOOD
What is the law?
NO SPILL BLOOD

Who makes the rules?
SOMEONE ELSE
Who makes the rules?
SOMEONE ELSE

We walk on two legs
not on four
Who walks on four legs
breaks the law

What happens when we break the law?
What happens when the rules aren't fair?
We all know where we go from there:
TO THE HOUSE OF PAIN"

--Oingo Boingo, "No Spill Blood" (paraphrasing The Island of Lost Souls, which was in turn an adaptation of "The Island of Dr. Moreau" by H.G. Wells)

As for why, there are lots of reasons. It's a great story, that was made into a great movie, that was made into a great song. It's creepy. It's moody. It's thought-provoking.

It also helped me get through some issues from my childhood, which I totally wasn't expecting. O.o
