Wow! This thread is longer than I thought!

Here's a few; I know the Martian beat me to one already....

Somewhere in a lonely hotel room
There's a guy starting to realize
That eternal Fate has turned its back on him.

It's two a.m. ...

--Golden Earring
Twilight Zone


Hello, Darkness, my old friend...

--Simon & Garfunkle
Sound of Silence


Hey there, Mister
Can you tell me what happened
To the seeds I've sown

Can you give me a reason, sir
As to why they've never grown

--Bruce Springsteen
This Hard Land

I come from down in The Valley
Where, Mister, when you're young
They bring you up to do
Like your daddy done

--Bruce Springsteen (again)
The River


Well I went to see the preacher
To teach me how to pray
Well He looked at me and smiled
Then that preacher turned away
He said "If you want to tell him something
You ain't gotta fold your hands.
Say it with your heart, your soul and believe it
And I'll say 'Amen'

-- Jon Bon Jovi (solo)
Bang a Drum

Across the border
they turn water into wine
Some say it's the devil's blood
They're squeezing from the vine
Some say it's a savior
In these hard and desperate times
You see it helps me to forget
That we're just born
To die
-- Bon Jovi
Dry County


If there's one thing in my life that's missin'
It's the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters
--Little River Band
Cool Change


As if I really didn't understand
That I was just another part of their plan
I went off looking for the promise
Believing in the Motherland
And from the comfort of a dreamer's bed
And the safety of my own head
I went on speaking of the future
While other people fought and bled
--Jackson Browne
(I was made) For America

I went out for a ride

And I never went back"

I am angry, I am ill, and I am ugly as sin
My irritability keeps me alive and kicking.
