I won't share the songs, but I think the modern hardcore scene has a few of the greatest lyricists.
"We played house with the neighbors in their basement
Sister made me husband she was older so I did her bidding
I remember once their dad came in said, 'You think this is bad?
You don’t know the half.' And he laughed.
It’s funny what things come back
The first things you see
How he sort of smiled like it’s only a joke but he was lying
There was something else inside of his eyes
All those secrets people tell to little children
Are warnings that they give them
Like, 'Look, I’m unhappy. Please don’t make the same mistake as me.'"
-For Mayor in Splitsville by La Dispute
"In a moment of clarity, bathed in these broken shards, we found our muse through deconstructive means and laid it out for the world to see."
-The Man with the Broken Nose by Locktender
"Drunk in the morning
I woke to Dragon's breath and summer tugging at my sheets to pull me out of bed
Drunk in the night
I swear I saw a raven grow black as your hair
Out of your thoughts, into the sky and through the outer holds
One year ago I watched dance across a wedding floor
In a bridesmaids dress that fell to pieces at your feet
Could you not see?
So many thoughts came unsummoned to me then
Unuttered on the car ride home
Before you left for the new world in shades of blue
I woke yesterday to no one lying by my side
Just empty pictures frames and broken dresser drawers
Where did you go?"
-I'm Still a Loner, Dottie by Troubled Coast
"Pick your poison as dead beats do
Leave a wake in the hearts that hurt you
Pick your poison as dead beats do
Blood pulsing through your wounds
A thousand warnings are ringing true
Burning their homes, writing in stone
The name of demons inside of you
You left your mark on this world
You left your scar on this world
You left your scar
You left your mark
-Dead Beat by Converge
Death ran away then life flooded in world
This I am: Imbalanced, beautifully so
Hands connected, perhaps...
Then dead reflections saw You
I did, didn't I?
I didn't, did I?
You saw reflections dead then
Perhaps, connected hands...
So beautifully Imbalanced: Am I this world?
In flooded life then away ran Death
-REDIVIDER by Silent Planet
"lost you in overflowing fog
that's been here awhile
so I plan to keep watch
as long as the wolves are out
they're always around
and more violet than hell
I have eyes of every color now
and they're vigilant
it doesn't matter who knocks
you don't let them in
there are terrible men
I'm one so I should know
heaven smiles on me now and then
but the devil always had hooks in"
-Moor by Every Time I Die
"Languages rot and insects lose interest;
Mountains of plastic: melting away
As long as these struggles are aimless,
We will all be standing still
When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche;
This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears
Collect the leaves
Study each and every single one of them"
-Danger: Wildman by The Devil Wears Prada
just to name a few.
