    For me. I'd have to choose the lyrics

    "Justifying violence

    Citing from the holy book

    Teaching hatred in the name of god."

    From [i]in the name of god- train of thought.

    To me, those lyrics. Are the most accurate, short, and truthfull lyrics I've ever heard.

    I thought about that for days.

    I've never thought the same about religion.

@Ytsejam58: Ah, "Learning To Live" might just be my all-time favorite DT song! Good choice!

i like Learning to live.

"I look at the world and see no understanding
I'm waiting to find some sense of strength
I'm begging you from the bottom of my heart
To show me understanding

I need to live life
Like some people never will
So find me kindness
Find me beauty
Find me truth
When temptation brings me to my knees
And I lay here drained of strength
Show me kindness
Show me beauty
Show me truth"

"The Answer Lies Within" just speaks to me. It's almost like they went back to the "A Change of Seasons" carpe diem theme. It definitely builds my confidence whenever I listen to it.

"As I Am" too, particularly these lines:

Still running uphill
Swimming against the current
I wish I weren't so fucked
Feels like I'm stuck
Lost in a sea of mediocrity

In darker times, I couldn't think of a better way to describe my despair with things that were going on. Songs like "Answer" though help me get through times that make me feel like the above lyrics.

I think that all of the lyrics are insightful and interesting in some way. If I had to pick favorites, I might go with the lyrics on the early albums: "Images and Words" and "When Dream and Day Unite." The words on those albums always seemed very poetic to me and I like that sort of thing.
