Speaking about worst lines, "How do you sleep, there's nothing to keep, this is deep" has made me facepalm when I hear it.

This.
And also:

I won't lie, 
It's exciting 
When I try 
To decide things.

At least those have different words rhyming with each other.. not one word rhyming with itself ;)

Since I am into No Substance these days, here are what I think are the worst lines in each song:

1. Hear It: "Blanket statements cover you like a rug"
2. Shades Of Truth: "You don’t know I’m alright"
3. All Fantastic Images: "If your only hope is simply peace and love"
4. The Biggest Killer: "Furniture makers, carpenters too"
5. No Substance: "And the fun never ends"
6. Raise Your Voice: "It’s the primary rule, you gotta wanna be fooled"
7. Sowing The Seeds Of Utopia: "The innocence of youth needs protection not abuse"
8. The Hippy Killers: "The hippy killers"!!
9. The State Of The End: "Today you are freer than ever to do what you want, provided you can pay for it"
10. The Voracious March Of Godliness: "And the conquest of nature meant nothing at all"
11. Mediocre Minds: "They wanna keep me locked away ‘Cause I’m an overactive brain"
12. Victims Of The Revolution: "When something is won, it comes with sacrifice"
13. Strange Denial: "Forward is the hope"
14. At The Mercy Of Imbeciles: "What you do is what you are"
15. The Same Person: "You want prosperity, For yourself, but not for me"
16. In So Many Ways: "No one really knows why we die"

But I dont want to sound too negative - there are some gems too on that album, which will be for a future post!

there are for sure some gems on No Substance, but yeah.  Raise Your Voice is garbage, and that rhyme is as bad as Mike Ness rhyming cool, school, fool and rules in one of his songs.  Poetry 101.  I generally like the musicality of All Fantastic Images, but "made me stick like glue" and the opening lines about England...hell, the entire song....are what I would expect out of a band just starting out, and certainly not from the same band who brought us, "A misanthropic anthropoid with nothing to say".

Raise Your Voice, lyrically and musically, seems like it would be a perfect fit on New America. Basically the same theme as You've Got a Chance. 

The rest of NS is the usual cynical BR, maybe even a little on the negative, dark end of things. Then there is this goofy rah-rah posi anthem right in the middle of the record.

Least favorite song on favorite album : The Lie
Favorite song on least favorite album : Don't sell me short.

About No Substance, back in 2006 they played Sowing the Seeds at a show in Quebec City, and it sounded so good.

Otherwise, Hear It and In so Many Ways are pretty much the only ones I listen to from this album. From time to time I catch myself playing the riff from No Substance and it's a fun one, similar to The Fault Line.
