Hello all, a newbie from Australia, a few of my favourite J.A or J.A-ish lines are...
"...the Human dream,doesnt mean shit to a tree".
or "No more room here to fuck around like we did before"
maybe "Amerika Hates her crazies"
and you gotta love Crazy Miranda. "she wants all the pretty boys beside her, to write some pretty words to guide her. To tell her that they love her body as well as her mind"

I am 44 years old and have been listening to JA since i was about 19. The owner of my local record shop had a copy of "Baxters" and he told me to try it out,This was in suburban NSW in the mid 80s for Gods sake :shock: Have been a lost cause ever since :)

For me, "Today" is all ONE single line.....so beautiful:):)

Today I feel like pleasing you more than before
Today I know what I want to do but I don't know what for
To be living for you is all I want to do
To be loving you it'll all be there when my dreams come true
Today you'll make me say that I somehow have changed
Today you'll look into my eyes, I'm just not the same
To be anymore than all I am would be a lie
I'm so full of love I could burst apart and start to cry
Today everything you want, I swear it all will come true
Today I realize how much I'm in love with you
With you standing here I could tell the world what it means to love
To go on from here I can't use words, they don't say enough
Please, please listen to me
It's taken so long to come true
And it's all for you
all for you....

This is a list rather. Why pick just one.

"If you smile at me you know I will understand 'cause that is something everybody everywhere does in the same language."
-Wooden Ships

"If you were a cloud and you sailed up there. Sailed on water blue as air. You'd see me here in the fields and say, 'doesn't the sky look green today?'"
-Ballad of You & Me & Pooneil.

"You know the sands of time are just made of sand."
-J.P.P. McStep B Blues

"The summer was dry like your nose when you've been behind coke for a day in a season."
-Hijack (Blows Against The Empire)

Best I quit before I get ahaead of myself.

"Well you can fool your friends about the way it ends but you can't fool yourself."
