    My favorite two are Morrissey, of the Smiths fame, and Ian Curtis, deceased lead singer of Joy Division. Out of the two I would have to say that Morrissey was the superior. His profound loneliness and depression permeated his lyrics, but he did it not only with sappiness and a "woe is me" attitude, but with wit and drama.

    Johnny Whitney writes some pretty insane lyrics.

    Literally, they sound insane.

    Say what you want of Axl Rose, but that guy can write lyrics.


    I've come to know the cold
    I think of it as home
    When there ain't enough of me to go around
    I'd rather be left alone
    But if I call you out of habit I'm out of love and
    I gotta have it
    Would you give it to me if I fit you needs
    Like when we both knew we had it
