Who is the better lyrcist? Roger Waters? John Lennon? Paul McCartney? The Lennon/McCartney duo? Syd Barrett? Peter Grabiel? Bob Dylan? Freddie Mercury? Donovan? David Bowie? Who is the better writer of classic music? There are many different ones but each have one thing in common: music. Many different styles apply. Except the oldies like Bach and Bethohoven :p Let's begin...

Lies.

Roger Waters is one of my favorite ltricists, in my top 10, but he's not my favorite ever. THAT would have to be John Lennon.

Waters is my second favourite if you count Lennon/McCartney as one, 3rd if you count em seperately

Snake, history will never know what she did. No one will ever learn the truth. Her story... her debriefing... will endure only in your heart. Everything she did, she did for her country. She sacrificed her life and her honor for her native land. She was a real hero. She was a true patriot. ~ EVA re: The Boss (MGS3)
