    If I ever get a tattoo, it's going to say: "someone left the door ajar".

    After 15 years of living and breathing his music, this is my favorite lyric.

    What's your DG lyric tattoo?

    " I'm searching every mirror
    For a trace of yesterday"

    I've always liked this line from Only the lonely .....

    I'd leave out the "so" at the beginning though ;)

    If I could tattoo music on my soul it would definitely be Flesh on the Bones of My Dreams. Alas,...

    If I would ever get a tatoo - what never will happen - I'm pretty sure it would be a whole body print of Davids lyrics...
    But I love it more just to listen to the things he wants to spread or I understand and imagine out of them.. His lyrics are really above everything.

    I love it, to write them down on a blank paper and to see, how magically they are. :)

    Hi there, about 5 years ago I got the last line of Transformation tattooed "Water lapping at my feet, transformation is complete" ...... I have since thought of loads more like say, the entire lyrics of Nemesis but haven't braved anymore since. Now I'm thinking about it again, cheers

    I have had lyrics from "Sail Away" for a long time now on my forearm and "DG" from an album cover on my toe... No regrets... Gearing up for another on my foot!!!

    I recently got "25 past eternity" tattooed on my arm. ("Nightblindness"). Next may well be "Carnivals of silverfish waiting to dance upon our bones."
