The Revenge Of The Quote Game

Recommended Posts

TheUnknown

Okay, with Wyld_Knight having disappeared into the abyss, I'm restarted the quote threads. All of these are quotes from songs. All but one are very big songs. All but one are from the 1990s. All are rock/alternative. All but one are from relatively big bands.

To answer, give the song title and artist name. Try answering them on your own, without using a search engine.

1. "Down in a Hole" by Alice in Chains - solved by Fett

Bury me softly in this womb

I give this part of me for you

Sand rains down and here I sit

Holding rare flowers

In a tomb...in bloom

2. "Hero of the Day" by Metallica - solved by Fett

But now the dreams and waking screams

That everlast the night

So build a wall

Behind it crawl

And hide until it’s light

So can’t you hear your babies crying now?

3. "Little Things" by Bush - solved by Mirax

Bigger you give

Bigger you get

We’re boss at denial

But best at forget

4. "Fell on Black Days" by Soundgarden - solved by Fett

So what you wanted to see good has made you blind

And what you wanted to be yours has made it mine

So don’t you lock up something that you wanted to see fly

Hands are for shaking

No, not tying

No, not tying

5. "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" by the Smashing Pumpkins - solved by Mirax

The world is a vampire, sent to drain

Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames

6. "Love Boat Captain" by Pearl Jam - solved by Fett

Hold me, and make it the truth,...

That when all is lost there will be you.

Cause to the universe I don’t mean a thing

And there’s just one word that I still believe and it’s

Love,... love. love. love. love.

7. "Interstate Love Song" by the Stone Temple Pilots - solved by Mirax

Leavin’ on a southern train

Only yesterday you lied,

Promises of what I seemed to be

Only watched the time go by,

All of these things you said to me.

8. "Head Like a Hole" by Nine Inch Nails - solved by Mirax

Head like a hole.

Black as your soul.

I’d rather die than give you control.

9. "Heart-shaped Box" by Nirvana - solved by Mirax

She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak

I’ve been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks

I’ve been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap

I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back

10. "Far Behind" by Candlebox - solved by Fett

And now maybe

Your friends they stand beside as you were flying

Oh you were flying oh so high

But then some day people look at you for what they call their own

They watch you suffer

Yeah they hear you calling home

Do we have to answer them all at once, or can we do just the ones we know?

All are right except for numbers 2 and 6. Fett, you're close, yet so far. And yes, when you get them, you can do the next one.

Yeah, the Metallica song. I just messed up the title. It's Hero of the Day.

And for number 6, same deal. It's "Love Boat Captain"

I just messed up the title.

Which is why I said, "So close, yet so far." :p
