I would say the lyrics I like the most are those written by Bob Dylan, and Jim Morrison of The Doors.
"Desolation Row" by Dylan is a true masterpiece if you haven't heard it, as someone mentioned it above.
One of my favorites by Dylan is "Mr. Tambourine Man"-
"Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow."
Part from "The End" By Jim Morrison (He would usually perform this song with improvised poetry during different sections...it was always played last at concerts, and the audience would leave, stunned, after seeing and hearing this performance, download a live version of this song)
"This is the end
This is the end
My only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die"
