    I know this wasn't directed at me, but I want to answer anyway

    I like his seventies stuff best. Try:

    Ziggy Stardust (probably my all time favourite)
    Rebel, Rebel
    Rock + Roll Suicide

    Hope you enjoy them

    Oh I have so many!
    I'll post the ones I can think of now and add more later. Have also answered this question on a similar thread a while ago so I won't post those again.

    "I just don't wanna die like a fool. I'm not lost, I'm somewhat off the way" Dogs Die In Hot Cars

    "It's nothing so simple, nothing so silly, nothing so mundane"
    Straylight Run

    "People spend so much time,
    Every single day,
    Running round, all over town,
    Giving their forever away,
    But no not me, I won't let my forever roam,
    And now I hope I can find my forever a home."
    Ben Harper

    "Just let me hold you while we're falling apart. Just let me hold you and we'll both fall down"
    Rob Thomas (This might not be an amazing lyric but I think the sort of love it describes is beautiful.)

    "Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude"
    The Jam

    "While my stepfather yells at my mother. Launches a glass across the room, straight at her head and I dash upstairs to take cover. Lean in close to my little record player on the floor, so this is what the volume knob's for."
    The Mountian Goats

    "A tiger's never gonna change its stripes, I guess, I guess, but Jesus what a mess."
    The Mountian Goats

    "There will be feasting, and dancing, in Jerusalem next year. I am gonna make it, through this year, if it kills me."
    The Mountain Goats

    "And you said "This is the first day of my life, I'm glad I didn't die before I met you."
    Bright Eyes

    "She acts like Summer and walks like rain, reminds me that there's a time to change"
    Train

    "Baby, instant soup doesn't really grab me, today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial."
    REM

    "I don't wanna die, but I ain't keen on living either"
    Robbie Williams

    "I'm not scared of dying, I just don't want to"
    Robbie Williams

    "Hang the blessed DJ,
    'Cause the music that he constantly plays,
    It says nothing to me about my life"
    The Smiths

    All I can think of for now!

    A better version imo is from the Smiths (who I see you have on your lyrics list ):

    "I think about life and I think about death
    And neither one particularly appeals to me"

    The moon hangs like the blade of an axe tonight,
    and it's poised to drop sometime soon enough on this dump truck where I lie mixed up with the morning's trash.
    There's a piece of glass sticking in my back and tar covering my mouth.
    But it's okay cause I'm still breathing and my hands are free of the heap.
    when I think that I see that big blade falling.
    And I think that I see that big blade coming.
    And the pressure is getting to me and the waste in which I sit is just lurking beside me.
    And I can't tell if it's me or the meat that's rotting.
    I'm gonna have to give up sometime soon.
    But it's okay cause I'm still breathing and my hands are free of the heap.
    when I think that I see that big blade falling.
    And I think that I see that big blade coming.
    You can watch me disappear.
    You can watch me.
    All I'm losing is me.
    And I think that I see that big blade falling.
    And I think that I see that big blade coming to slice open a great canyon through the earth so you can watch me disappear.

    all i'm loosing is me - saves the day

    also..

    Broken this fragile thing now
    And I can't, I can't pick up the pieces
    And I've thrown my words all around
    But I can't, I can't give you a reason

    I feel so broken up (so broken up)
    And I give up (I give up)
    I just want to tell you so you know

    (Chorus)
    Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
    You are my only one
    I let go, there's just no one that gets me like you do
    You are my only, my only one

    Made my mistakes, let you down
    And I can't, I can't hold on for too long
    Ran my whole life in the ground
    And I can't, I can't get up when you're gone

    And something's breaking up (breaking up)
    I feel like giving up (like giving up)
    I won't walk out until you know

    (Chorus)
    Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
    You are my only one
    I let go, there's just no one that gets me like you do
    You are my only my only one

    (Interlude)

    Here I go...so dishonestly leave a note for you my only one
    And I know...you can see right through me
    So let me go...and you will find some one

    Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
    You are my only one
    I let go, there's just no one...no one like you
    You are my only my only one
    My only one(x3)
    You are my only my only one!

    An ending fitting for the start
    You twist and tore our love apart
    Your light fingers threw the dark
    that shattered the lamp and into darkness cast us

    No you've got it the wrong way round
    You shut me up, and blamed it on the brown

    Cornered the boy, kicked out at the world...
    The world kicked back a lot ****ing harder now...

    If you wanna try
    There's no worse you could do

    It's hard to beat Modest Mouse's lyrics:

    Modest Mouse - Bury Me With It

    Well fads they come and fads they go
    God I love that Rock n' Roll
    Well my point was fast but it was too blunt to miss
    Life handed us a paycheck. We said "We worked harder than this"

    Some of my favourite are AC/DC lyrics (covered by Mark Kozelek)

    AC/DC/Mark Kozelek - Bad Boy Boogie

    Being Bad ain't that bad
    I've had more pretty women than most men have
    So all you all come along with me
    And I'll show you how fun can be

    AC/DC/Mark Kozelek - Love At First Feel

    Didn't know where you came from
    And I didn't know your name
    And if you were legal tender
    Well I'd spend you just the same
    Didn't know it could happen
    Love in the third degree

    It was Love at first feel (6X)

    They told me it was disgusting
    They told me it was a sin
    Every night at your front door
    I'd smile when you let me in
    Now it's you and me baby
    In Your House all alone
    Better make things happen
    Before Your Mum and Dad get home

    As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
    And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
    Just as hate knows love's the cure
    You can rest your mind assure
    That I'll be loving you always

    As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
    But in passing will grow older every day
    Just as all that's born is new
    You know what I say is true
    That I'll be loving you always

    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

    Did you know that true love asks for nothing
    Her acceptance is the way we pay
    Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
    To last through forever and another day

    Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
    And the seasons know exactly when to change
    Just as kindness knows no shame
    Know through all your joy and pain
    That I'll be loving you always

    As today I know I'm living, but tomorrow
    Could make me the past, but that I mustn't fear
    For I'll know deep in my mind
    The love of me I've left behind
    'Cause I'll be loving you always

    Until the day is night and night becomes the day
    Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
    Until the day that eight times eight times eight is four
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Until the day the earth starts turnin' right to left
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
    Until dear mother nature says her work is through
    Until the day that you are me and I am you
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high

    another green salad, another ice tea
    there's a tunic in the closet waiting just for me
    I feel like I'm disappearing - getting smaller every day
    but I look in your eyes - and I'm bigger in every way

    If love is surrender
    Then whose war is it anyway?
    Frou Frou- Psychobabble

    I feel so holy and clean when I stretch out on the floor and sing.
    Sometimes god comes in for a minute and says I'm doing fine, I'm almost there.
    Every day I get a little closer to vanishing.
    Some days I can't stand up because the room moves under my feet and I smile
    because I'm almost there, I'm almost an angel.

    We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
    Although I wasn’t there, he said I was his friend
    Which came as some surprise I spoke into his eyes
    I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

    Oh no, not me
    I never lost control
    You’re face to face
    With the man who sold the world

    I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
    I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed
    I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
    We must have died along, a long long time ago

    Oh no, not me
    I never lost control
    You’re face to face

    the best lyrics ever in my opinion: Bjork- Scatterheart
    Black night is falling
    The sun is gone to bed
    The innocent are dreaming
    As you should, sleepy-head
    Sleepy-head, sleepy-head:

    All the love above
    I send into you
    Comfort and protection
    I'll watch over you

    But don't ask me
    What's gonna happen next
    I know the future
    I'd love to lead you the way
    Just to make it easier on you

    You are gonna have to find out for yourself

    My

    Dearest

    Scatterheart

    There is comfort
    Right in the eye
    Of the hurricane
    Just to make it easier on you

    You are gonna have to find out for yourself

    All the hurt in the world
    You know
    There's nothing I'd love to do more
    Than spare you from that burden
    It's gonna be hard

    If I only could
    Shelter you
    From that pain
    Just to make it easier on you

    You are gonna have to find out for yourself



    and:
    'He said I’m gonna buy this place and see it go
    Stand here beside me baby watch the orange glow
    Some’ll laugh and some just sit and cry
    But you just sit down there and you wonder why'- Coldplay, A rush of blood to the head,
