I recently came across some great tunes by a band called Local Natives and I've been taken in by their album Gorilla Manor. The song, "Shapeshifter" has some great lyrics....
Why does the soul hallucinate?
I've got control, I shift my shape
If flesh and bone do not contain
The mirrors don't reflect my face
The song "Wide Eyes" is another one that stands out lyrically, as it seems to present an honest and desperate desire to make sense of the world around us. Musically and vocally this band makes these poetically thoughtful lyrics really come alive. I love it when bands have layers to their music and lyrics like these guys, instead of just throwing some pithy cliches together and having some sound mixer put some beats to it. Highly reccommend listening to the whole album (sample it on their website).
