Since I'm having a REALLY lousy day (more on that at another time, in another thread) I've decided to resurrect my old "Favorite Song Lyrics" topic, with a new twist: This version of the thread is specifically for posting lyrics revolving around the Dark Side of life, songs about heartbreak, anger, pain whether physical or emotional... in short, songs about how SUCKY life is. No happy, upbeat songs allowed here, nosiree! We don't want 'em! (But don't worry, they've got their own thread (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?t=44735). ;))

First up on my list is an underrated gem off of Godsmack's second album Awake..."Sick of Life" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ-Bt7Ix1-k)

Paralyzed,
nothing's getting through to me
Hypnotized
from all my surroundings
I want to be
something I could never be
I want to say
things that I could never say
Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!
I’m gonna do it again
I’m gonna do it again now!

Sick… of… my life!
I'm tired of everything… in… my life!

Dragged down,
rubbing my face in the ground
No time
for the undecided
I want to know
why I've always felt alone
And I want to love
Why am I untouchable?
Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!
I’m gonna do it again
I’m gonna do it again now!

Sick… of… my life!
I'm tired of everything… in… my life!
I never wanted to be sick… of… my life!
I'm tired of everything in my life!

Sick… of… my life!
I'm tired of everything… in… my life!
I never wanted to be sick… of… my life!
I'm tired of everything in my life!
.......................
More to come later... in the meantime, I look forward to seeing what the rest of you post. ;)

Cradle of Filth - Cthulhu Dawn - relevant because when/if demons come to kick our asses we'll be absolutely completely entirely fucked.

Spatter the stars
Douse their luminosity
With our amniotic retch
Promulgating the birth
Of another Hell on Earth
Shadows gather poisoned henna for the flesh
A necrotic cattle brand
The hissing downfall pentagram
Carven deep upon the church doors of the damned
But no Passover is planned
A great renewal growls at hand
And only when they're running
Will they come to understand...

So ends the pitiful reign of Man

When the moon exhales
Behind a veil
Of widowhood and clouds
On a Biblical scale
We raise the stakes
To silhouette the impaled
Crowds...

Within this kissed disembowel arena
A broken seal on an ancient curse
Unleashes beasts from the seismic breach
With lightning reach and genocidal thirst
Mountains of archaos theories
In collision as at planetary dawn
Apocalypse's razorbacks
Beat wings on glass as thunder cracks
Unfurled across a world hurled to the black

Cthulhu dawn

Shatter the glass house
Wherein spirits breathe out
Halitosis of the soul
From a recking abscess
Plague of far righteousness
All fates hang in the balance
Mocking crucified dolls
An inquisition ours
When the Sun goes out our powers
Will extend throughout Heaven like Asphodel
As they have for countless lustrum
In dark Midian accustoned
To burning effigies of our enemies well

So begins the sibilant world Death knell...

When a corpse wind howls
And awakes from drowse
The scheming dead freed
Of gossamer shrouds
We gorgonise eyes
Of the storm aroused
Red...

Blinding time
All lines dine on this instance
A melting spool of beggar, negative frames
The skies teem alive, to watch die
Mankind hauled to fable in vast tenement graves...

Cthulhu dawn

Cthulhu dawn

Cthulhu dawn

It's Been Awhile
by Staind

Its been a while
Since I could...
Hold my head up high
Its been a while
Since I first saw you
Its been a while
Since I could stand
On my own two feet again
And its been a while
Since I could call you

And everything I can remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
Consequences that Ive rendered
Have stretched myself beyond my means

Its been a while
Since I could say
That I wasnt addicted
Its been a while
Since I could say
I loved myself as well and...
Its been a while
Since Ive gone and fucked things up
Just like I always do
Its been a while
But all that shit seems to disappear when Im with you

And everything I can remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
Consequences that Ive rendered
Gone and fucked things up again... again

Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day
But then I go an fuck things up again

Its been a while
Since I could...
Look at myself straight
Its been a while
Since I said Im sorry
Its been a while
Since Ive seen the way
The candles light your face
Its been a while
But I can still
Remember just the way you taste

Everything I can remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
To me... I know this pain
Can I blame this on my father?
He did the best he could for me

Its been a while
Since I could...
Hold my head up high
Its been a while
Since I said Im sorry

This is one of the songs we are covering for my band's current playlist, and I'm singing lead on it.

I think it's kind of precient considering the state of jobs and the economy.

The Fisherman's Song
(Andy Stewart)

By the storm-torn shoreline, a woman is standing
The spray strung like jewels in her hair
And the sea tore the rocks near that desolate landing
As though it had known she stood there

For she has come down to condemn that wild ocean
For the murderous loss of her man
His ship sailed out on Wednesday morning
And it's feared she's gone down with all hands

And it's white were the wave-caps and wild was their parting
So fierce is the warring of love
But she prayed to the gods, both of men and of sailors
Not to cast their cruel nets o'er her love

And she has come down to condemn that wild ocean
For the murderous loss of her man
His ship sailed out on Wednesday morning
And it's feared she's gone down with all hands

There's a school on the hill where the son's of dead fathers
Are led toward tempests and gales
Where their God-given wings are clipped close to their bodies
And their eyes are bound round with ships' sails

And she has come down to condemn that wild ocean
For the murderous loss of her man
His ship sailed out on Wednesday morning
And it's feared she's gone down with all hands

What force leads a man to a life filled with danger
High on seas or a mile underground
It's when need is his master and poverty's no stranger
And there's no other work to be found

And she has come down to condemn that wild ocean
For the murderous loss of her man
His ship sailed out on Wednesday morning
And it's feared she's gone down with all hands

Chris Daughtry, "Over You" It might not seem like it's all that dark, until you think of the fact that maybe it's about someone you never, ever thought you would HAVE to get over, and imagine the rage you have to feel to be willing to tell someone personally how happy you are to be over them. Then it definitely crosses that line. (The fact that I came up with this song without even a second's thought tells me that maybe I indulge that hatred a little too much. Eh.)

Now that it's all said and done,
I can't believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down,
Like an old abandoned house.
What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath.
I fell too far, was in way too deep.
Guess I let you get the best of me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.
And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
Well I'm putting my heart back together,
'Cause I got over you.
Well I got over you.
I got over you.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

This is Don't Say a Word by Sonata Arcitca. It's about a guy who is slowly killing his girl for cheating on him...or so I take it. This is one of my favorite bands. Most of their songs are angsty and dark.



I am your poison candygram,
The love that's meant to fade away
Vade retro, alter ego, move aside, I'm choking on this life
I think I tolerate your hate, as long as you're afraid
All I wanted was to be with you and suffer every day

Under the moon I hold a wake for a promise torn
Mortally wounded, feelings sheltered me
Once again my shadow will enter your life
Time to walk with me the last mile...

I read a book about a man, a love, a woman, how they died
How I was waved aside, listen how the headless doves cry
I truly see a madman in the mirror when I'm weak
I spent a year in love before I realized it's me

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you're lying
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Could I let you wait out the night

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

It won't be long now, love, like mist I slowly fill the room
I place a black candle on your chest,
The path of night is manifest
I never wanted us to end up in this catatonic phase
It was not me who ran away, you made me stray...

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you lie
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Settling the score, we pass the twilight...

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

Strawberry blonde, your stranglehold
on my heart is bound to end
I suppose, life sometimes,
It doesn't go the way it was meant
Though you never were a believer,
I assure you: I won't die before you
You read the book now,
The part “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust”

Short is the flight of this little starling
Love sounds familiar, but the emotion escapes me
I will carpe the diem while it's still here,
And see how the fear of death becomes her

We had it all so sweet
Made for me, you, indeed...
Big secret, small the lie
Don't cry for me, oh, argentite

No word you say tonight
Can make this be alright
I'll help you follow through
Remember this?: pacta sunt servanda

... The wounds are too deep,
I need to keep the scars
to prove there was a time
When I loved something more than life

Unlike the last time here,
I now have the means and a will sincere
Your knight is nowhere near
Unfortunate for you, this makes me your God...

Closing your eyes, don't ever say you love me, whore
You never meant a word, I know you lied
When there is life, there is despair, indulge me now
And stay alive this night...
I promise you the end before the first light arrives

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

Here's one of my favorite Slipknot songs, make of it what you will.
Pulse of the Maggots ~Slipknot

This is the year where hope fails you
The test subjects run the experiments
And the bastards you know, is the hero you hate
But cohesing is posssible if we strive
Theres no reason, theres no lesson
No time like the present, telling you right now
What have you got to lose, what have you got to lose
Except your soul...who's with us!

I fight for the unconventional
My right, and its unconditional
I can only, be as real as i can
The disadvantage is
I never knew the plan
This isn't the way just to be a martyr
I cant, walk alone any longer
I fight, for the ones who can't fight
And if I lose, at least I tried

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggots

I won't, be the inconsequential
I won't, be the wasted potential
I can make it, as severe as I can
Until you realize
You'll never take a stand
It isn't, just a one-sided version
We've dealt, with a manic subversion
And I won't, let the truth be perverted
And I won't leave another victim deserted

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggots

Do you understand? (yes)
Do you understand? (yes)
Do you understand? (yes)
Do you understand? (yes)

Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)

We fight til no one can fight us
We live, and no one can stop us
We pull when we're pushed too far
And the advantages is
The bottom line is
We never, had to fight in the first place
We only, had to spit back at their face
We won't, walk alone any longer
What doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggots

Do you understand (yes)
Do you understand (yes)
Do you understand (yes)
Do you understand (yes)

Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)

My choice is End of Hope by Nightwish. I'm not a dark music person so this is the closest thing I could find.

It is the end of all hope.
To lose the child, the faith.
To end all the innocence.
To be someone like me.

This is the birth of all hope.
To have what I once had.
This life unforgiven, It will end with birth.

No will to wake for this morn.
To see another black rose born.
Deathbed is slowly covered with snow.

Angels, they fell first, but I'm still here
Alone as they are drawing near.
In heaven my masterpiece will finally be sung.

It is the end of all hope.
To lose the child, the faith.
To end all the innocence.
To be someone like me.

Wounded is the deer that leaps highest, and my wound it cuts so deep.
Turn off the light and let me pull the plug.

It is the end of all hope.
To lose the child, the faith.
To end all the innocence.
To be someone like me.

This is the birth of all hope.
To have what I once had.
This life unforgiven, It will end with a birth.

Mandylion without a face, Deathwish without a prayer.
End of hope, end of love, end of time. The rest is silence.

It is the end of all hope.
To lose the child, the faith.
To end all the innocence.
To be someone like me.

This is the birth of all hope.
To have what I once had.

It is the end of all hope.
To lose the child, the faith.
To end all the innocence.
To be someone like me.

It is the end of all hope.
To lose the child, the faith.
End of all hope.

Be warned, it gets dark and violent.

Slayer--Payback

You need to take a closer look at me
'Cause I was born to be a thorn in your side
No matter what you think you're gonna see
You never wanted this barrage of fucking pride!

You don't want none of me!

You've got a fucking catheter in your brain
Pissing your common sense away
When you draw first blood you can't stop this fight
For my own peace of mind
I'm going to tear your fucking eyes out
Rip your fucking flesh off
Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
Fuck you and your progress
Watch me fucking regress
You were made to take the fall--now you're nothing!
PAYBACK'S A BITCH, MOTHERFUCKER!

You only live to be a parasite
Your life must suck when nothing's going your way
Everything melts away before your eyes
You're just a punk that doesn't have the sense to get away!

Get the fuck away!

You've got a fucking catheter in your brain
Pissing your common sense away
When you draw first blood you can't stop this fight
For my own peace of mind
I'm going to tear your fucking eyes out
Rip your fucking flesh off
Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
Fuck you and your progress
Watch me fucking regress
You were made to take the fall--now you're nothing!
Now you're nothing!
PAYBACK'S A BITCH, MOTHERFUCKER!

I will never become your fucking scapegoat!
I don't know how it feels to come up short!
I only want vengeance to start shining down on me!
I don't want you to die before I get the chance to kill you myself!

You've got a fucking catheter in your brain
Pissing your common sense away
This is for the mindfuck
This is for the hell of it
This is for me!
I'm going to tear your fucking eyes out
Rip your fucking flesh off
Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
Fuck you and your progress
Watch me fucking regress
You were made to take the fall--now you're nothing!
Tear your fucking eyes out
Rip your fucking flesh off
Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
Fuck you and your progress
Watch me fucking regress
You were made to take the fall--now you're nothing!
Now you're nothing!

YOU AIN'T FUCKIN' SHIT!

Pain, Three Days Grace
(When I get used to Flash, I WILL be making a music vid to this, Starring the Evil Queen herself :D)

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

You're sick of feeling numb
You're not the only one
I'll take you by the hand
And I'll show you a world that you can understand
This life is filled with hurt
When happiness doesn't work
Trust me and take my hand
When the lights go out you'll understand

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Anger and agony
Are better than misery
Trust me I've got a plan
When the lights go off you'll understand

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing
Rather feel pain

I know (I know I know I know I know)
That you're wounded
You know (You know you know you know you know)
That I'm here to save you
You know (You know you know you know you know)
I'm always here for you
I know (I know I know I know I know)
That you'll thank me later

Pain, without love
Pain, can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Rather feel pain than nothing at all
Rather feel pain

The Ledge by The Replacements

All eyes look up to me
High above the filthy streets
Heed no bullhorn when it calls
Watch me fly and die, watch me fall

I'm the boy they can't ignore,
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
All the love sent up high to pledge
Won't reach the ledge

Wind blows cold from the west
I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts for the press
A girl that I knew once years ago
Is tryin' to be reached on the phone

I'm the boy she can't ignore,
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
All the love sent up high to pledge...

(Repeat)

(Instrumental break)

Priest kneels silent, all is still
Policeman reaches from the sill
Watch him try to try his best
There'll be no medal pinned to his chest

I'm the boy they couldn't ignore,
For the first time in my life, I'm sure

(Repeat)

I'm the boy for the last time in my life

All the love that they pledge
For the last time will not reach the ledge

Goodbye Blue Sky - The Wall

Goodbye Blue Sky (Waters) 2:48

"Look mummy, there's an aeroplane up in the sky"

Did you see the frightened ones?
Did you hear the falling bombs?
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the
promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue
sky?

Did you see the frightened ones?
Did you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all gone, but the pain lingers on.

Goodbye, blue sky
Goodbye, blue sky.
Goodbye.
Goodbye.
Goodbye.

"The 11:15 from Newcastle is now approaching"
"The 11:18 arrival...."

Goodbye Cruel World - The Wall

Goodbye Cruel World (Waters) 1:05

Goodbye cruel world,
I'm leaving you today.
Goodbye,
Goodbye,
Goodbye.

Goodbye, all you people,
There's nothing you can say
To make me change my mind.
Goodbye.

Brain Damage - Dark Side of the Moon

Brain Damage
(Waters) 3:50

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

"I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvelous! HaHaHa!"

This is an old folk traditional called Silver Dagger. I've always thought it was terribly sad, someone choosing to close up and always be lonely for fear of being hurt.


Don't sing love songs; you'll wake my mother
She's sleeping here, right by my side
And in her right hand, a silver dagger
She says that I can't be your bride.
All men are false, says my mother
They'll tell you wicked, lovin' lies
The very next evening, they'll court another
Leave you alone to pine and sigh.
My daddy is a handsome devil
He's got a chain five miles long
And on every link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he's loved and wronged.
Go court another tender maiden
And hope that she will be your wife
For I've been warned and I've decided
To sleep alone all of my life.

"Away From the Sun" by 3 Doors Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwvqE8S4D8c)

It's down to this,
I've got to make this life make sense
Can anyone tell what I've done?
I miss the life,
I miss the colors of the world
Can anyone tell where I am?

'Cause now again,
I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines into
the darkest place, I'm so far down,
away from the sun again
Away from the sun again

I'm over this,
I'm tired of living in the dark
Can anyone see me down here?
The feeling's gone,
there's nothing left to lift me up
back into the world I know

'Cause now again,
I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines into
the darkest place, I'm so far down,
away from the sun that shines to light
the way for me to find my way
back into the arms that care about
the ones like me, I'm so far down,
away from the sun again
Oh, no
Yeah
Oh no

It's down to this,
I've got to make this life make sense
And now I can't tell what I've done
And now again,
I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines to light
the way for me

'Cause now again,
I've found myself so far down
Away from the sun that shines into
the darkest place, I'm so far down,
away from the sun that shines to light
the way for me to find my way
back into the arms that care about
the ones like me, I'm so far down,
away from the sun again
Oh, no
Yeah
I'm gone...........................

Lyin' in my plastic bed
thinkin' how things weren't so cool to me
my baby likes to shoot pool
I like lyin' naked in my bedroom
tying off that dinousaur tonight
it used to be so cool to...

But now i've got the needle
and i can shake but i can't breathe
i take it away
but i want more, and more
one day i'm gonna lose the war

Lyin' in my plastic bed
thinkin how things weren't so cool to me
my baby like to shoot pool
like lyin naked in my bedroom
tying on the dinousaur tonight
it used to be so cool

now i got the needle
and i can shake but i can't breath
i take it away
but i want more, and more
one day i'm gonna lose the war.

When Tom Waits released "Alice" and "Blood Money" at the same time, I thought the two albums were some of his best work but it was like a double kick in the nuts.

Lyrics to No One Knows I'm Gone :
(Tom Waits/Kathleen Brennan)

Hell above and Heaven below
All the trees are gone
The rain made such a lovely sound
To those who are six feet under ground
The leaves will bury every year
And no one knows I’m gone

Live me golden tell me dark
Hide from Graveyard John
The moon is full here every night
And I can bathe here in his light
The leaves will bury every year
And no one knows I’m gone

Lyrics to Lullaby :
Sun is red; moon is cracked
Daddy's never coming back
Nothing's ever yours to keep
Close your eyes, go to sleep
If I die before you wake
Don't you cry, don't you weep

Nothing's ever as it seems
Climb the ladder to you dreams
If I die before you wake
Don't you cry, don't you weep
Nothing's ever yours to keep
Close your eyes; go to sleep

Johnny Cash "Hurt"

I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but I remember everything
what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt

I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
upon my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappear
you are someone else
I am still right here

what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt

I will let you down
I will make you hurt

if I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Weird Al Yankovic "The Night Santa Went Crazy"

Down in the workshop all the elves were makin' toys
For the good Gentile girls and the good Gentile boys
When the boss busted in, nearly scared 'em half to death
Had a rifle in his hands and cheap whiskey on his breath
From his beard to his boots he was covered with ammo
Like a big fat drunk disgruntled Yuletide Rambo
And he smiled and said, with a twinkle in his eye,
"Merry Christmas to all, now you're all gonna die!"
The night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nick went insane
Realized he'd been gettin' a raw deal
Something finally must have snapped in his brain

Well, the workshop is gone now, he decided to bomb it
Everywhere you'll find pieces of Cupid and Comet
And he tied up his helpers and he held the elves hostage
And he ground up poor Rudolph into reindeer sausage
He got Dancer and Prancer with an old German Luger
And he slashed up Dasher just like Freddie Krueger
And he picked up a flamethrower and barbecued Blitzen
And he took a big bite and said, "It tastes just like chicken!"

The night Santa went crazy
The night Kris Kringle went nuts
Now you can't hardly walk around the North Pole
Without steppin' in reindeer guts

There's the National Guard and the F. B. I.
There's a van from the Eyewitness News
And helicopters circlin' 'round in the sky
And the bullets are flyin', the body count's risin'
And everyone's dyin' to know, oh Santa, why?
My my my my my my
You used to be such a jolly guy

Yes, Virginia, now Santa's doing time
In a federal prison for his infamous crime
Hey, little friend, now don't you cry no more tears
He'll be out with good behavior in 700 more years
But now Vixen's in therapy and Donner's still nervous
And the elves all got jobs working for the postal service
And they say Mrs. Claus, she's on the phone every night
With her lawyer negotiating the movie rights

They're talkin 'bout the night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nicholas flipped
Broke his back for some milk and cookies
Sounds to me like he was tired of gettin' gypped

Wo, the night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nick went insane
Realized he'd been gettin' a raw deal
Something finally must have snapped in his brain
Wo, something finally must have snapped in his brain
Tell ya, something finally must have snapped... in his brain

:p

Ooh, I love that Johnny Cash song. I believe it was originally done by Nine Inch Nails (it's on one of his "American Man" cover CDs) but his version is powerful, and his voice is perfect for it.

Monday Morning Church - Alan Jackson & Patty Loveless

Clickety for video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nF67S93QBJQ)

You left your Bible on the dresser
So I put it in the drawer
'Cause I can't seem to talk to God without yelling anymore
And when I sit at your piano
I can almost hear those hymns
The keys are just collecting dust
But I can't close the lid

You left my heart as empty
as a Monday morning church
It used to be so full of faith and now it only hurts
And I can heart the devil whisper
"Things are only getting worse"
You left my heart as empty
as a Monday morning church

The preacher came by Sunday
said he missed me at the service
He told me Jesus loves me
but I'm not sure I deserve it
'Cause the faithful man that you loved
is nowhere to be found
Since they took all that he believed
and laid it in the ground

Chorus

I still believe in Heaven
and I'm sure you've made it there
But as for me without your love, girl
I don't have a prayer

Chorus

You left your Bible on the dresser
so I put it in the drawer


Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley & Alison Krauss

Clickety For Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYub1neLZmA)

She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

1st Chorus
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

(Sing lullaby)

The rumors flew but nobody know how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

2nd Chorus
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

Both songs that are practically guaranteed to make me weep!

Sad lyrics:

Everclear:Wonderful


I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope it's over when I open them

I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
And make everything be wonderful again

I hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
I hear them scream, I hear them fight
They say bad words that makes me want to cry

Close my eyes when I go to bed and I
Dream of angels who make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say that
Everything will be wonderful some day

Promises mean everything
When you're little and the world is so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

Please don't tell me everthing is wonderful now

I go to school and I run and play
I tell the kids that it's all ok
I laugh alot so my friends won't know
When the bell rings I just don't want to go home

Go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I don't believe you when you say that
Everything will be wonderful some day

Promises mean everything
When you're little and the world is so big (so big)
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

No, no
I don't want to hear you tell me
Everything is wonderful now
No, no
I don't want to hear you tell me
Everything is wonderful now
I don't want to hear you say
That I will understand some day
No, no, no, no
I don't want to hear you say
That you both have grown in a different way
No, no, no
No I don't want to meet your friend
I don't want to start over again
I just want my life to be the same
Just like it used to be
Somedays, I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything

Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

No
Please I don't want to hear you tell me
everything is wonderful now

No
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
Everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you tell me
I don't wanna hear you tell me
Everything is wonderful now
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
Yeah, yeah everything is wonderful now
Oh yeah, everything is wonderful now



Dirty lyrics:

INXS:Need You Tonight

All you've got is this moment
21st Century's yesterday
You can care all you want
Everybody does, yeah that's okay

So slide over here
And give me a moment
You moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind, ooh

I need you tonight
Cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

How do you feel? (I'm lonely)
What do you think? (Can't think at all)
Whatcha gonna do? (Gonna live my life)

So slide over here
And give me a moment
You moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind, oh

I need you tonight
Cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

So how do you feel? (I'm lonely)
What do you think? (Can't think at all)
Whatcha gonna do? (Gonna live my life)
So how do you feel? (I'm lonely)
What do you think? (Can't think at all)
Whatcha gonna do? (Gonna live my life)

So slide over here
And give me a moment
You moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know

So slide over here
And give me a moment
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know

You're one of my kind

Flogging Molly - Another Bag of Bricks
(The thing about Flogging Molly is their songs sound happy till you listen to the words.)
T`was in the early evenin`
Near the presence of the moon
You told me you would meet me here
Well now is not too soon
This dagger twisting in my back
Tells me I never should
Have trusted everything to fall
From beggar to fool
I see your face like every race
A serpent with two arms
Devouring me while rains the sun
With dreams in foreign lands
This cold dark tormented hell
Is all I`ll ever know
So when you get to heaven
May the devil be the judge
With another bag of bricks

I scratch your name across these walls
And with my blood turns red
Then drips upon my killing floor
Where I now call my bed
No precious light to harbor
Like so many here before
Now breathes a thousand more
With another bag of bricks

Temper filled with blindness
Leads this lost and lonely man
Dragged around your whipping tree
A scourge you can`t command
So deafen me with silence
Drown me with your roar
Scowl me with your hollow eyes
Still burnin` to the core
No door will go unanswerd
Like so many closed before
No vagabond to knock upon
This tired and beatin` war
When all return to exile
Free from all once bound
Decline and brawl old parasites
The truth will yet be found
With another bag of bricks

This cold dark tormented hell
Is all I`ll ever know
So when you get to heaven
May the devil be the judge
With another bag of bricks

VNV Nation - Chrome
A million faces, each a million lies
for each and all a chrome disguise
prompts for action, force reaction
embody promise in a sheen so pure.
Hurt, the measure of blind ambition,
the testament to your singular disease.
Against all wisdom you heed no warning,
your desires giving you away.

If I could change your mind,
I wouldn't save you from the path you wander.
In desperation dreams, any soul can set you free.
And I still hear you scream,
in every breath, in every single motion.
Burning innocence, the fire to set you free.

Your actions turn conquest to dust.
Importance of fate, you foolishly place trust.
Sense fear in your broken breathing.
Resort to shadows till your body expires.
All creation has the promise of heaven,
and still you travel the road to hell.
I'm saying nothing for the good of myself,
but I'm still talking and you're not listening.

If I could change your mind,
I wouldn't save you from the path you wander.
In desperation dreams, any soul can set you free.
And I still hear you scream,
in every breath, in every single motion.
Burning innocence, the fire to set you free.

As night descends upon the city,
the streets are cold, the lights go by.
And in the stories of the people,
a million faces, a million lies.
They'll never say they feel what you feel,
that they can see the world you see.
And in their faces, their expressions,
a million faces, a million lies.

VNV Nation - Illusion
I know it's hard to tell how mixed up you feel
Hoping what you need is behind every door
Each time you get hurt, I don't want you to change
Because everyone has hopes, you're human after all
The feeling sometimes, wishing you were someone else
Feeling as though you never belong
This feeling is not sadness, this feeling is not joy
I truly understand. Please, don't cry now

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion trying to change you

Being like you are
Well this is something else, who would comprehend?
But some that do, lay claim
Divine purpose blesses them
That's not what I believe, and it doesn't matter anyway
A part of your soul ties you to the next world
Or maybe to the last, but I'm still not sure
But what I do know, is to us the world is different
As we are to the world but I guess you would know that

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion trying to change you
Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, oh please don't leave here
I don't want you to change for all the hurt that you feel
This world is just illusion always trying to change you

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion trying to change you
Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, oh please don't leave here
I don't want you to change for all the hurt that you feel
This world is just illusion always trying to change you

Faith No More - Falling to Pieces

Back and forth, I sway with the wind
Resolution slips away again
Right through my fingers, back into my heart
Where it's out of reach and it's in the dark
Sometimes I think I'm blind
Or I may be just paralyzed
Because the plot thickens every day
And the pieces of my puzzle keep crumblin' away
But I know, there's a picture beneath
Indecision clouds my vision
No one listens...
Because I'm somewhere in between
My love and my agony
You see, I'm somewhere in between
My life is falling to pieces
Somebody put me together
Layin' face down on the ground
My fingers in my ears to block the sound
My eyes shut tight to avoid the sight
Anticipating the end, losing the will to fight
Droplets of "yes" and "no"
In an ocean of "maybe"
From the bottom, it looks like a steep incline
From the top, another downhill slope of mine
But I know, the equilibrium's there
Indecision clouds my vision
No one listens
Because I'm somewhere in between
My love and my agony
You see, I'm somewhere in between
My life is falling to pieces
Somebody put me together

Everybody Hurts - REM

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
when you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don't let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along.
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
if you feel like letting go, (hold on)
when you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on.

Everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no. Don't throw your hand.
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
when you think you've had too much of this life to hang on.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. (repeat & fade)
(Everybody hurts. You are not alone.)

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky - Manic Street Preachers

You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss your scent around
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out in here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, christ, temple, elders
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss your secent around
Carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out in here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy.

The Minute Of Decay - Marilyn Manson

There's not much left to love
too tired today to hate
I feel the empty
I feel the minute of decay

I'm on my way down now, I'd like to take you with me I'm on my
way down
I'm on my way down now, I'd like to take you with me
I'm on my way down

the minute that it's born
it begins to die
I'd love to just give in,
I'd love to live this lie

I've been to black and back
I've whited out my name
a lack of pain, a lack of hope,
a lack of anything to say

there is no cure for what is killing me

I'm on my way down
I've looked ahead
and everything was dead
I guess that I am too

(chorus)

I'm on my way down now, I'd like to take you with me...

This is Don't Say a Word by Sonata Arcitca. It's about a guy who is slowly killing his girl for cheating on him...or so I take it. This is one of my favorite bands. Most of their songs are angsty and dark.Sonata Arctica is great, and they put on one HELL of a live show! :D

I'll be posting some of their stuff eventually. ;)My choice is End of Hope by Nightwish. I'm not a dark music person so this is the closest thing I could find.Another fantastic metal band from Europe! I'll be seeing them in concert in early May! :D

from Godsmack's album IV... another fave, a really bluesy, sad song that sums up my life perfectly..."One Rainy Day" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDR8e7rUn54)

Oh man, I'm tired and lonely
Again, why must it be?
A man is drowning slowly
and he can't keep above,
gone way too deep, yeah

Open skies are falling,
tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean
and comes back around
One rainy day

Oh, so many times,
I should've crawled when I went running by
And since then,
I've been left feeling traumatized, yeah
Raped and drained of an innocence,
a gift we've lost over time!
And still I gaze through this one rainy day,
alone with no one by my side!

Open skies are falling,
tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean
and comes back around, yeah
I swear I've given,
I've given you all I can
Never will you ever make me feel this way again,
no, on this one rainy day!

Yeah-ah-ah!
Open skies are falling,
tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean
and comes back around
One rainy day
Ooh, one rainy day
Oh, one rainy day
It's been just one rainy day...............................

"How About You" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AX0ORMtGjwY)

If someone else showed you the way,
would you take the wheel and steer?
It hurts me that you're not ashamed
of what you're doing here
If they jumped off a bridge,
would you meet them on the ground?
Or would you try and claim
that it never made a sound?

Everyone plays the hand they're dealt,
and learns to walk through life themselves
Not everything in life is handed on a plate
When people think your words are true,
it doesn't matter what you do
I sold my soul to get here,
how 'bout you?

So you choose to force your hand
What a strange way to make friends
And you always change the rules,
so the drama never ends
And you blindly go through life,
judging only by its worth
Just try not to forget
that the meek inherit Earth

Everyone plays the hand they're dealt,
and learns to walk through life themselves
Not everything in life is handed on a plate
When people think your words are true,
it doesn't matter what you do
I sold my soul to get here,
how 'bout you?

So please don't take offense
This is just a point of view
'Cause I'm the only one who
will say these things to you

Everyone plays the hand they're dealt,
and learns to walk through life themselves
Not everything in life is handed on a plate
When people think your words are true,
it doesn't matter what you do
I sold my soul to get here,
how 'bout you?"Schizophrenic Conversations" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1t1fieeWphU)

Are you afraid, afraid of the truth
in the mirror staring back at you?
The image is cracked, but so is the view here
And the strength of a tree begins in the roots
that I tend to bury into you
At least now the storm can't blow me away

So crawl inside my head with me
I'll show you how it feels to be,
to blame like me

Should I be afraid of this face that I see
in the mirror staring back at me?
So cold were the days when I listened to you
And you say that I'm weak, so show me the proof,
because I still exist in spite of you
But I won't compete with you every day

So crawl inside my head with me
I'll show you how it feels to be,
to blame like me

Schizophrenic conversations that
I'm always having with myself
I hear these voices in my head competing,
maybe I could use a little help
I still have schizophrenic conversations
when there's no one else around to hear
I long for solitude and peace within me,
void of all the anger and the fear

So crawl inside my head with me
and I'll show you how it feels to be
fucked up like me

I'll show you how it feels to be,
to blame like me
Ashamed like me

Kinda shocks a couple of "Dark Side" songs aren't hear already.

Here's my favorite dark side songs, that haven't already been mentioned.

"A Therapy For Pain" by Fear Factory

I welcome death with open arms
Her soft breath and simple charm
Wandering through memories
Takes my hand for me to see

Tried so hard
Tried so hard

Echoes of Innocence
Are my thoughts into dissent

Tried so hard
Tried so hard
Tried so hard
Tried so hard

When we finally reach the end
She lets go off my hand
Walking into realms of light
There will be no death tonight

Tried so hard
Tried so hard
Tried so hard
Tried so hard

"Fade To Black" by Metallica

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free


Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now He's gone
No one but me can save myself, but it to late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye

Blind - Korn

Are you ready?!

This place inside my mind, a place I like to hide
You don't know the chances. Would if I should die?!
A place inside my brain, another kind of pain
You don't know the chances. I'm so blind!

Another place I find to escape the pain inside
You don't know the chances. Would if I should die?!
A place inside my brain, another kind of pain
You don't know the chances. I'm so blind!

Deeper!.. Deeper!.. Deeper inside me!
To live a life that seems to be a lost reality
That can never find a way to reach.
My inner self
I stand alone!
How deep can I go in the ground that I lay?
If I don't find a way to see through the gray that clouds my mind.
This time I look to see what's between the lines!

I can see, I can see, I'm going blind... [x12]
I'm blind [x4]

Originally performed by Tears for Fears it was redone by Gary Jules for the Movie Donnie Darko. Makes me very sad when I listen to it.

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow


And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Mad world


Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me


And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Mad World
Enlarging your world
Mad World.

Evanescence - "Call Me When You're Sober"
Don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
You want me
Come find me
Make up your mind

Should I let you fall and lose it all?
So maybe you can remember yourself
Can't keep believing
We're only deceiving ourselves
And I'm sick of the lie
And you're too late

Don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
You want me
Come find me
Make up your mind

Couldn't take the blame
Sick with shame
Must be exhausting to lose your own game
Selfishly hated
No wonder you're jaded
You can't play the victim this time
And you're too late

So don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
You want me
Come find me
Make up your mind

You never call me when you're sober
You only want it 'cause it's over
It's over!

How could I have burned paradise?
How could I? You were never mine!

So don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
Don't love me
Just get your things
I've made up your mind

Fiona Apple - "Never is a Promise"
You'll never see the courage I know
It's color's richness won't appear within your view
I'll never glow the way that you glow
Your presence dominates the judgements made on you

But as the scenery grows I see in different lights
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
My feelings swell and stretch; I see from greater
heights
I understand what I am still too proud to
mention...to you
You'll say you understand, but you don't understand
You'll say you'll never give up seeing eye to eye
But never is a promise, and you can't afford to lie

You'll never touch these things that I hold
The skin of my emotions lies beneath my own
You'll never feel the heat of this soul
My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown...to you

You'll say don't fear your dreams, it's easier than
it seems
You'll say you'd never let me fall from hopes so
high
But never is a promise and you can't afford to lie
You'll never live this life that I live

I'll never live the life that wakes me in the night
You'll never hear the message I give
You'll say it looks as though I might give up this
fight ...

But as the scenery grows I see in different lights
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
My feelings swell and stretch; I see from greater
heights
I realize what I am now too smart to mention...to
you
You'll say you understand; you'll never understand
I'll say I'll never wake up knowing how or why
I don't know what to believe in; you don't know who
I am
You'll say I'll need appeasing when I start to cry
But never is a promise and I'll never need a lie

Strawberry Gashes - Jack Off Jill

Turn her over
A candle is lit
I see through her
Blow it out and save all her ashes for me
Curse me
Sold her
The poison that runs its course through her
Pale white skin with strawberry gashes
All over all over

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
She said kill me faster
With strawberry gashes
All over

Called her over
And asked her if she was improving
She said feels fine
It's wonderful wonderful here

Hex me told her
I dreamt of a devil that knew her
Pale white skin with
Strawberry gashes
All over all over

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
She said kill me faster
With strawberry gashes all over all over

I lay quiet
Waiting for her voice to say
Some things you lose
And some things you just give away

Scold me failed her
If only I'd held on tighter to her
Pale white skin
That twisted and withered
Away from me away from me

Watch me lose her
It's almost like losing myself
Give her my soul
And let them take some body else
Get away from me

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
She said kill me faster
With strawberry gashes all over all over ME

Cradle of Filth
The Foetus Of A New Day Kicking

I’m chaos international
The writing on the wall
A Lazarus in parable

A dark and sullen lullaby
Whispered softly as you die
Promising torments are nigh

Danger warning levels hissed out loud
I saw the silver lining hidden in a mushroom cloud
Now I’m reeling from the shock at ground zero

If yesterday you would have stood up proud
Then why tonight have you thrown in with the stoning crowd?
I’ll breathe through the foetus of a new day kicking…

The foetus of a new day kicking

It’s true that Jesus cannot save
I’m rising from the grave
To put my double cross to shame

A poison rush, a heart attack
A white assassin painted black
You’ll fear this reaper coming back

Danger warning levels hissed out loud
I saw the silver lining hidden in a mushroom cloud
Now I’m reeling from the shock at ground zero

If yesterday you would have stood up proud
Then why tonight have you thrown in with the stoning crowd?
I’ll breathe through the foetus of a new day kicking…

On a night like this
You laid the serpent’s kiss
In this garden of Gethsemane
You played the traitor well

In a dawn to come
I will blind the sun
To grant you pardon as my enemy

Before damning you to hell…

Danger warning levels hissed out loud
I saw the silver lining hidden in a mushroom cloud
Now I’m reeling from the shock at ground zero

If yesterday you would have stood up proud
Then why tonight have you thrown in with the stoning crowd?
I’ll breathe through the foetus of a new day kicking…

You tried to hit me!

Scream at me again, if you like
Throw your hate at me, with all your might
Hit me 'cause I'm strange, hit me
Tell me I'm a pussy and you're harder than me

A tattooed body to, hide who you are
Scared to be honest, be yourself
A cowardly man

Trying to be, what's not within me
Look, into my eyes

You're just a wanna-be!

Scream at me again, if you like
Throw your hate at me, with all your might
Hit me 'cause I'm strange, hit me
Tell me I'm a pussy and you're harder than me

Fear Of Dying - Jack Off Jill

I'm not afraid of standing still
I'm just afraid of being bored
I'm not afraid of speaking my mind
I'm just afraid of being ignored

I'm not afraid of feeling
and I'm not afraid of trying
I'm just afraid of losing
And I am afraid of dying

Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I do
Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I...

I'm not afraid of being sick
I'm more afraid of being well
I'm not afraid
Put the gun in my hand
I'm just afraid it will hurt like (hurt like) hell

I'm not afraid of screaming
and I'm not afraid of crying
I'm just afraid of forgetting
And I am afraid of dying

Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I do
Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I...

Fear of
Fear of
Fear of
Fear of

I'm not afraid of looking ugly
I couldn't care what they say
I'm not afraid of happy endings
I'm just afraid my life won't work that way

I'm not afraid of forgiveness
I'll absolve you everything
I'm not afraid of lying...
But I am afraid of dying

Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I do
Without you all I do is sit and think about you
Without you yes I...

George Jones, He Stopped Loving Her Today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz2aNifcy20)

He said I'll love you 'til I die
She told him you'll forget in time
As the years went slowly by
She still preyed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all
Hoping she'd come back again

Kept some letters by his bed
Dated 1962
He had underlined in red
Every single I love you

I went to see him just today
Oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I'd seen him smile in years

(Chorus)
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

(Spoken)
You know she came to see him one last time
Oh and we all wondered if she would
And it kept running through my mind
This time he's over her for good

(Repeat Chorus)

Yo La Tengo--Damage
Not much, a Friday night, pinball
Glorious sight walked out of the past and into the bar
I used to think about you all the time
I would think about you all the time
Now it just feels weird, cause there you are
The damage is done

I feel like a kid again
My eyes are glued to the floor
I hope I mumbled goodbye as you walked out the door
The damage is done

Bob Mould--The Next Time That You Leave

The next time that you leave
I'm burning everything you own
Then you'll have no reason,
No reason to return

The next time that you leave
I'm burning out my memories,
I don't need reminders,
remind me to forget

You are not a master
maybe you have mastered
different games that worked with others
but I am not the others,
You are just a bastard...

The next time that you leave
I'll learn how to walk again
walking towards no future
futureless but not for long

The next time that you leave
I'll turn over in my sleep
no one there beside me
besides the sides you've picked your side

You are not the person
I expect to grow old with
but you have changed your colors
and I am not your colors
This has simply worsened...

The next time that you leave
maybe I'll have lots of parties,
maybe I'll sit quietly
maybe you won't know

Freedy Johnston--The Mortician's Daughter (For more Freedy sadness, try Can You Fly or Western Sky)
I used to love the mortician's daughter
We drew our hearts on the dusty coffin lids
I grieve tonight over this letter
My tears dissolve an image in the careful ink

Her father stands in the open door
He's waiting for her
There's a storm blowing across the lake
It's late summer
On the broken step is a cardboard box full of wilted flowers
She whispers in my burning ear
It doesn't matter

I used to love the mortician's daughter
We rolled in the warm grass by the boneyard fence
Her skin so white
The first leaves falling
This long forgotten night I am there again

Her father stands in the open door
He's waiting for her
There's a ribbon printed with last respects
Blowing down the gutter
The rain comes in, she drops my hand, she's turning, laughing
And I used to love the mortician's daughter

I used to love the mortician's daughter
We drew our hearts on the dusty coffin lids
There's a lonely dove out on the telephone wire
I turn my head and she flies away

Warren Zevon--The French Inhaler
How're you going to make your way in the world
When you weren't cut out for working
When your fingers are slender and frail
How're you going to get around
In this sleazy bedroom town
If you don't put yourself up for sale

Where will you go with your scarves and your miracles
Who's gonna know who you are
Drugs and wine and flattering light
You must try it again till you get it right
Maybe you'll end up with someone different every night

All these people with no home to go home to
They'd all like to spend the night with you
Maybe I would, too

But tell me
How're you going to make your way in the world, woman
When you weren't cut out for working
And you just can't concentrate
And you always show up late

You said you were an actress
Yes, I believe you are
I thought you'd be a star
So I drank up all the money,
Yes, I drank up all the money,
With these phonies in this Hollywood bar,
These friends of mine in this Hollywood bar

Loneliness and frustration
We both came down with an acute case
And when the lights came up at two
I caught a glimpse of you
And your face looked like something
Death brought with him in his suitcase

Your pretty face
It looked so wasted
Another pretty face
Devastated
The French Inhaler
He stamped and mailed her
"So long, Norman"
She said, "So long, Norman"

Never Again - Nickelback

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
She must have done something wrong tonight
The living room becomes a boxing ring
It's time to run when you see him
Clenching his fists
She's just a woman
Never again

I hear a scream, from down the hall
Amazing she can even talk at all
She cries to me, Go back to bed
I'm terrified that she'll wind up
Dead in his hands, She's just a woman
Never again

Been there before, but not like this
Seen it before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never again

Just tell the nurse, you slipped and fell
It starts to sting as it starts to swell
She looks at you, she wants the truth
It's right out there in the waiting room
With those hands
Lookin just as sweet as he can
Never again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Well never again
Never again

Father's a name you haven't earned yet
You're just a child with a temper
Haven't you heard "Don't hit a lady"?
Kickin' your ass would be a pleasure

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
The Same old shit, just on a different night
She grabs the gun, she's had enough
Tonight she'll find out how fuckin'
Tough is this man
Pulls the trigger fast as she can
Never again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never again
Never again
Never again
Never again

Kinda shocks a couple of "Dark Side" songs aren't hear already.

Here's my favorite dark side songs, that haven't already been mentioned.

"Fade To Black" by MetallicaI was getting to it! Sheesh! Some people just have no patience! :rolleyes:

Anyway, moving on... here's a tune so good, that it still gets HEAVY airplay some 15 years or so after it first came out... and has also made its way onto Rock Band (I'm AWESOME at singing this song, if I do say so myself! ;))"Creep" by Radiohead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxpblnsJEWM)

When you were here before,
couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
in a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so very special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts,
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
when I'm not around
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh
She's running out the door
She's running out
She run run run run...
run... run...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here...And since Mr. Slugger likes the REALLY dark stuff, i.e. songs dealing with suicide, here's the darkest song on the subject I've ever personally heard... off of Staind's first album, Tormented (which you won't find in any stores, because it's self-published by the band themselves and only available from their website)...

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING SONG LYRICS CONTAIN EXTREMELY DARK SUBJECT MATTER, DEALING WITH SUICIDE! IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED OR UPSET, DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING LYRICS!!!

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!
"4 Walls" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eag5slJ_yag)

The thoughts from my mind
command my lips to say "I hate you"
The thoughts from my mind
command my hands to cut your silken flesh
The thoughts from my mind
command my feet to stomp your head
The thoughts from my mind
have one question:
When will this ever end?

Not much to the life I live,
same 4 walls
I have nothing left to give,
please take it all away
Same 4 walls

The thoughts from my mind
feel the pain as rats gnaw at my flesh
The thoughts from my mind
feel the joy as the needle hits my vein
The thoughts from my mind
smell the stench as shit runs down my leg
The thoughts from my mind
ask for sanity,
no, for this I beg!

Not much to this life I live,
same 4 walls
I have nothing left to give,
please take it all away
Same 4 walls
Same 4 walls

My mind is like today
Damp, dark, dreary
As the rain falls outside beating
The leaves hit the ground
I can feel it
Slipping away
Dying, without decay
Dying, like my soul
From the inside out
I can only pray
It won't be long
It won't be long now
It can't be long
It can't be long now
Help me (Where do I go from here?)

The thoughts from my mind
command my lips to say "I hate you"
The thoughts from my mind
command my hands to cut your silken flesh
The thoughts from my mind
command my feet to stomp your head
The thoughts from my mind
have one question:
When will I be dead?!?!

This is the life I have to live,
same 4 walls
I have nothing left to give,
please take it all away

This is the life I have to live!
Same 4 walls
I have nothing left to give,
please take it all away
Same 4 walls
Same 4 walls
Same 4 walls
Same 4 walls

(There’s nothing left for me)
-=BANG!=-That BANG at the end? That's the sound of a gun going off. The whole album is a concept album. The first thing you hear is the cocking of a gun. Then you hear a bunch of songs about how fucked up his life is. "4 Walls" is the final song listed on the song list. It ends with the gun going off, then silence for several minutes, then a hidden "Funeral Track" that's something like 20 minutes of funeral music. How's that for ending an album on a depressing note? ;)

Patches (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GzyEAC8rOw) - Dickey Lee

Down by the river that flows by the coal yards
Stand wooden houses with shutters torn down.
There lives a girl everybody calls Patches.
Patches my darling of old Shantytown.

We planned to marry when June brought the summer.
I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride.
Now I don't see how that ever can happen.
My folks say no and my heart breaks inside.

Patches oh what can I do?
I swear I'll always love you.
But a girl from that place would just bring me disgrace,
So my folks won't let me love you.

Each night I cry as I think of that shanty,
And pretty patches there watching the door.
She doesn't know that I can't come to see her.
Patches must think that I love her no more.

I hear a neighbor telling my father
He says a girl name of Patches was found
Floating face down in that dirty old river
That flows by the coal yards in old Shantytown.

Patches oh what can I do?
I swear I'll always love you.
It may not be right but I'll join you tonight.
Patches I'm coming to you.

Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne

Wine is fine but whiskey's quicker
Suicide is slow with liquor
Take a bottle, drown your sorrows
Then it floods away tomorrow's

Evil thoughts and evil doings
Cold, alone you hang in ruins
Thought that you'd escape the Reaper
You can't escape the Master Keeper

'Cause you feel life's unreal and you're living a lie
Such a shame who's to blame and you're wondering why
Then you ask from your cask is there life after birth
What you saw can mean Hell on this earth
Hell on this earth

Now you live inside a bottle
The Reaper's travelling at full throttle
It's catching you but you don't see
The Reaper's you and the Reaper is me

Breaking laws, knocking doors
But there's no one at home
Made your bed, rest your head
But you lie there and moan
Where to hide, Suicide is the only way out
Don't you know what it's really about

Wine is fine but whiskey's quicker
Suicide is slow with liquor
Take a bottle, drown your sorrows
Then it floods away tomorrow's

BJ the DJ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHLBqG1RXqw) by Stonewall Jackson

A story bout a pal of mine who worked down near the Georgia Line
A DJ in a little country station

Everybody loved him dear cause he played what they liked to hear
He built himself up quite a reputation

At record hops he stayed out late and his mom would always wait
To see if he had made it home alive

She warned against his loss of sleep and driving fast in that old heap
And that he had to be at work by five.

BJ the DJ you're living much too fast
And if you don't change your ways don't see how you can last.

Every morning just past four from the driveway he would roar
Overslept and he was late again.

Then at breakneck speed he'd drive to sign the station on at five
He had lots of records he must spin.

His mom sat by the radio until his voice told her hello
She knew then that he made it there alright

Then she'd say a little prayer, giving thanks that he was there.
And she'd wait up for him again tonight

Then one cold and rainy morn all the tires were badly worn
But still he scratched off just as fast this time.

BJ had a lot of nerve but he completely missed the curve
And he signed off down near the Georgia Line

Mom sat by the radio the voice she heard she didn't know
BJ had never been this late before

But with the road so bad and all she'd wait a while before she called
And then she heard the knock upon the door

BJ the DJ only twenty four
A wreck at ninety miles an hour he'll spin the hits no more.

The Intense Humming Of Evil - Manic Street Preachers

You were what you were
Clean cut, unbecoming
Recreation for the masses
You always mistook fists for flowers

Welcome welcome soldier smiling
Funeral march for agony's last edge

Six million screaming souls
Maybe misery - maybe nothing at all
Lives that wouldn't have changed a thing
Never counted - never mattered - never be

Arbeit macht frei
Transports of invalids
Hartheim Castle breathes us in
In block five we worship malaria

Lagerstrasse, poplar trees
Beauty lost, dignity gone
Rascher surveys us butcher bacteria

Welcome welcome soldier smiling
Soon infected, nails broken hunger's a word

Six million screaming souls
Maybe misery - maybe nothing at all
Lives that wouldn't have changed a thing
Never counted - never mattered - never be

Drink it away, every tear is false
Churchill no different
Wish the workers bled to a machine

OK, as promised, here's some Sonata Arctica..."Paid In Full" by Sonata Arctica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6lo_kssC3I)

I was nowhere near ready when all it ended
So I hoped we could find a new day,
cannot live without you

You gave me the chance, time and again, in vain
Now my feelings for you, every tear, every smile, paid in full
Break the chain, but no longer can I take the pain

It's hard for me to love myself right now,
I've waited, hated, blamed it all on you

Needed to be strong, yet I was always too weak
So I can only blame myself for this state we are in
I will take what you have for me now, it's not too late
Did you change? I did too. Love can grow from the last grain

It's hard for me to love myself right now
I've waited, hated, blamed it all on...

You...
I need you... less and less...
Every day feeds this moral decay
Yet I have grown to love you even more

I fall back, and I turn another cheek
You mouth the words you're not ready to speak
You're scared of me now; no I never had a clue
that I'd become so much stronger than you

I will take what you have for me now, if it's not too late

If you like, I will leave; I will not miss the last train again

It's hard for me to love myself right now
I've waited, hated, blamed it all on you...

It's hard for me to love your face right now
I'm waiting, hating, needing being
me...
I need you... less and less...
Every day leads us farther away...
from that moment

It's hard for me to hate myself right now
Finally I'm understanding me
One day we may have all new me's and you's
But first I need to learn to love me too...

Manic Street Preachers have loads of lyrics for dark side. xD

Yes - Manic Street Preachers

For sale? Dumb cunts same dumb questions
Virgin? Listen, all virgins are liars, honey
And I don't know what I'm scared of or what I even enjoy
Dulling, get money, but nothing turns out like you want it to

And in these plagued streets of pity you can buy anything
For 200 anyone can conceive a God on video
He's a boy, you want a girl so tear off his cock
Tie his hair in bunches, fuck him, call him Rita if you want

I eat and I dress and I wash and I still can say thank you
Puking - shaking - sinking I still stand for old ladies
Can't shout, can't scream, hurt myself to get pain out

I 'T' them, 24:7, all year long
Purgatory's circle, drowning here, someone will always say yes
Funny place for the social, for the insects to start caring
Just an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff

And in these plagued streets of pity you can buy anything
For 200 anyone can conceive a God on video
He's a boy, you want a girl so tear off his cock
Tie his hair in bunches, fuck him, call him Rita if you want, if you want

I eat and I dress and I wash and I still can say thank you
Puking - shaking - sinking I still stand for old ladies
Can't shout, can't scream, hurt myself to get pain out

Power produces desire, the weak have none
There's no lust in this coma even for a fifty
Solitude, solitude, the 11th commandment

The only certain thing that is left about me
There's no part of my body that has not been used
Pity or pain, to show displeasure's shame
Everyone I've loved or hated always seems to leave

And in these plagued streets of pity you can buy anything
For 200 anyone can conceive a God on video
He's a boy, you want a girl so tear off his cock
Tie his hair in bunches, fuck him, call him Rita if you want, if you want

Power produces desire, the weak have none
There's no lust in this coma even for a fifty
Solitude, solitude, the 11th commandment

Don't hurt, just obey, lie down, do as they say
May as well be heaven this hell, smells the same
These sunless afternoons I can't find myself

Very good song by Metallica

ONE

I Can't Remember Anything
Can't Tell If this Is True or Dream
Deep down Inside I Feel to Scream
this Terrible Silence Stops Me
Now That the War Is Through with Me
I'm Waking up I Can Not See
That There's Not Much Left of Me
Nothing Is Real but Pain Now

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God,wake Me

Back in the Womb its Much Too Real
in Pumps Life That I must Feel
but Can't Look Forward to Reveal
Look to the Time When I'll Live
Fed Through the Tube That Sticks in Me
Just like a Wartime Novelty
Tied to Machines That Make Me Be
Cut this Life off from Me

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God,wake Me

Now the World Is Gone I'm Just One
Oh God,help Me Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God Help Me

Darkness

Imprisoning Me
All That I See
Absolute Horror
I Cannot Live
I Cannot Die
Trapped in Myself
Body My Holding Cell

Landmine

Has Taken My Sight
Taken My Speech
Taken My Hearing
Taken My Arms
Taken My Legs
Taken My Soul
Left Me with Life in Hell

The Nobodies - Marilyn Manson

Today I'm dirty
I want to to be pretty
Tomorrow I know, I'm just dirt

Tomorrow I know, I'm just dirt

We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
When we're dead, they'll know just who we are

When we're dead, they'll know just who we are

Yesterday I was dirty

When we're dead, they'll know just who we are
We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
When we're dead, they'll know just who we are

Some children died the other day
We feed machines and then we pray
puked up and down in morbid faith
You should have seen the ratings that day
Some children died the other day

Clem Snide--Something Beautiful

You make me wanna
Stumble on pillows
Skin both my knees
You make me wanna
Put you inside my mouth so i can't say please

You make me wanna
Soak it in gasoline
Stain my new shirt
You make me wanna
Sip lysol from a cup
So clean it hurts

You make me wanna break
Break
Something beautiful

You make me wanna
Fold the map improperly
Locked in a stall
You make me wanna
Not turn the wipers on when
Rain starts to fall

You make me wanna
Smoke every cigarette
That's ever been made
You make me wanna
Make the rules up as i go
So no one can play

you make me wanna break
Break
Something beautiful

You make me wanna
Drink from the deepest well
Build towers of steel
You make me wanna
Cut down a million trees
Spin fiery wheels

You make me wanna
Block out the moonlight
Turn off the sun
You make me wanna
Fire off my cannon balls
Make the natives run

You make me wanna break
Break
Break
Break
Something beautiful

Get Your Gunn - Marilyn Manson

(God damn your righteous hand)

I eat innocent meat
The housewife I will beat
The prolife I will kill
What you won't do I will

I bash myself to sleep
What you sow I will reap
I scar myself you see
I wish I wasn't me

I am the little stick
You stir me into shit
I hate therefore I am
Goddamn your righteous hand

God damn (hoo, Lord...)
God damn (hoo, Lord...)
God damn (hoo, Lord...)
God damn (hoo, Lord...)

Pseudo-morals work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
selective judgement, good-guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me

I throw a little fit
I slit my teenage wrist
most I can learn
Is records that you burn

Get your gunn
Get your gunn
Get your gunn
Get your gunn

Pseudo-morals work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
selective judgement, goodguy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me

Pseudo-morals work real well
on the talk shows for the weak
selective judgement, good-guy badges
don't mean a fuck to me

I am the VHS
Record me with your fist
Want me to save the world
I'm just a little girl

Pseudo-morals work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
selective judgement, good-guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me

Pseudo-morals work real well

selective judgement, good-guy badges

If I were ever lucky enough to be in a heavy metal band, this is most likely the song I would cover to end every show with. At first, you may ask why this is in the Dark Side Edition. All will become clear once you get to the second verse. ;)"Intro" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sE6YIq_dx4)

Thank you to the people in my life,
for putting up with me
And thank you for the times you sacrificed,
all on account of me

For all the times I didn't say!
The times I didn't say
For all the times I didn't say!
The times I didn't say

Fuck you to the jaded and the fake!
I'd like to see what you would do
Fuck you and the judgments that you make
We're not all perfect just like you,
like you, like you

For all the times I didn't say!
The times I didn't say
For all the times I didn't say!
The times I didn't say

The times I didn't say
The times I didn't say

Thank you to the people in my life,
for putting up with me

Inside - Stiltskin

Swing low in a dark glass hour
You turn and cower
See it turn to dust

Move on a stone dark night
We take to flight
Snowfall turns to rust

Seam in a fusing mine
Like a nursing rhyme
Fat man starts to fall

Year in a hostile place
I hear your face
Start to call

And if you think that I've been losing my way
That's because I'm slightly blinded,
And if you think that I don't make too much sense
That's because I'm broken minded
Don't keep it...
Inside
If you believe it
Don't keep it all inside

Strong words in a ganges sky
I have to lie
Shadows move in pairs

Ring out from the bruised postcard
In the shooting yard
Looking through the tears

Out on the black slate time
We move in line
But never reach an end

Fall in a long stray town
As the ice comes down
Rivers start to bend

And if you think that I've been losing my way
That's because I'm slightly blinded,
And if you think that I don't make too much sense
That's because I'm broken minded
Don't keep it...
Inside
If you believe it
Don't keep it all inside

"Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" - Porcupine Tree, from the album "Deadwing"

Never stop the car on a drive in the dark
Never look for the truth in your mother's eyes
Never trust the sound of rain upon a river
Rushing through your ears

Arriving somewhere but not here

Did you imagine the final sound as a gun?
Or the smashing windscreen of a car?
Did you ever imagine the last thing you'd hear as you're fading out was a song?

All my designs, simplified
And all of my plans, compromised
All of my dreams, sacrificed

Ever had the feeling you've been here before?
Drinking down the poison the way you were taught
Every thought from here on in your life begins
And all you knew was wrong?

Did you see the red mist block your path?
Did the scissors cut a way to your heart?
Did you feel the envy for the sons of mothers tearing you apart?

My Friend Of Misery - Metallica

You just stood there screaming
Fearing no one was listening to you
They say the empty can rattles the most
The sound of your own voice must soothe you
Hearing only what you want to hear
And knowing only what you've heard
You, you're smothered in tragedy
And you're out to save the world

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than what you see
My friend of misery

You still stood there screaming
No-one caring about these words you tell
My friend before your voice is gone
One man's fun is another's hell
These times are said to try men's souls
But something's wrong with all you see
You, you'll take it on all yourself
Remember, misery loves company

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than what you see
My friend of misery

You just stood there screaming
My friend of misery

Here's a couple more of my favorites from Metallica, classics from back when they were still AWESOME!"Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" by Metallica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abHUigYaHRw)

Welcome to where time stands still
No one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
Just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, no windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred

Sleep my friend and you will see
that dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
Can't they see it's why my brain says rage?

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Built my fear of what's out there
Cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain,
assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands,
but violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
He's getting better, can't you tell?

No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well,
but they think this saves us from our hell

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone
Sanitarium, just leave me alone!

Fear of living on
Natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
Got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
Seems the only way
for reaching out again"...And Justice For All" by Metallica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfoDh1XL2wo)

Halls of justice painted green,
money talking
Power wolves beset your door,
hear them stalking
Soon you'll please their appetite,
they devour
Hammer of Justice crushes you,
overpower

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can't believe the things you say
I can't believe,
I can't believe the price you pay
Nothing can save you

Justice is lost,
justice is raped,
justice is gone
Pulling your strings,
justice is done
Seeking no truth,
winning is all
Find it so grim,
so true, so real

Apathy their stepping stone,
so unfeeling
Hidden deep animosity,
so deceiving
Through your eyes their light burns,
hoping to find
Inquisition sinking you
with prying minds

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can't believe the things you say
I can't believe,
I can't believe the price you pay
Nothing can save you

Justice is lost,
justice is raped,
justice is gone
Pulling your strings,
justice is done
Seeking no truth,
winning is all
Find it so grim,
so true, so real

Lady Justice has been raped
Truth assassin
Rolls of red tape seal your lips,
now you're done in
Their money tips her scales again,
make your deal
Just what is truth? I cannot tell,
cannot feel

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can't believe the things you say
I can't believe,
I can't believe the price we pay
Nothing can save us

Justice is lost,
justice is raped,
justice is gone
Pulling your strings,
justice is done
Seeking no truth,
winning is all
Find it so grim,
so true, so real

Seeking no truth,
winning is all
Find it so grim,
so true, so realhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v148/JackTChance/SilentBobHeadbanging.gif

"The Way I Am" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4_6e7ZH78A)

I'm not really good at just paying attention
I'm not very good at remembering things that you say
I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that I play

It's the way I am, you'll never change
The way I am, or rearrange
The way I am, just let me be
The way I am, it's the way I am

I'm not really sure of the coming attractions
I'm not really sure of illusions we read on the wall
I'm not really sure of the preaching we practice
I'm not really sure if we'll notice it before we fall

It's the way I am, you'll never change
The way I am, or rearrange
The way I am, just let me be
The way I am, it's the way I am

Not very good at just paying attention
I'm not very good at remembering things
I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that I play
when I'm trying so hard just to beat you
I'm not really good at controlling my fate
I'm not really good at controlling my anger
I'm not really good at subduing my hate
I'm not really good
I'm not really good
I'm not really good

It's the way I am, you'll never change
The way I am, or rearrange
The way I am, just let me be
The way I am, it's the way I amA very powerful little song about maintaining your uniqueness and individuality in a world that constantly pressures us to conform, and wants us to become one of the mindless sheep blindly following the rest of the herd. This is why I love Staind, Aaron Lewis and company are very much like me in the way that they think. :cool:

Boulevard Of Broken Dreams - Green Day

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But It's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
When the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's th' only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh-Ah
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and every thing's all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's th' only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish a someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh-Ah
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah

I walk alone
I walk a...

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
When the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone

Go Away - Oingo Boingo


Every time I see you now it makes me feel so bad
Reminds me of the memories I wish I never had
Standing in a crowded room too dark for me to see
Someone's pushing from behind, just leave me room to breathe

And go away from me, just go away
To another time, another place
To another world, another dream
Go away from me...

Walking down the sidewalk in a crowd that doesn't care
Bumping into shoulders every eye is on the street
There's a man with tattered clothes who's cursing at the air
Everyone is slowing down to catch a little peak

Just go away from me, just go away
To another time, another place
To another world, another dream
Go away from me...

Every time I wake up and I see myself again
Staring in the mirror like a burnt out piece of wood
Searching every feature for a single trace of life
Couldn't find the answer 'cause the mirror never lies

Just go away from me, just go away
To another time, another place
To another world, another dream
Go away from me, just go away...

Go away from me, just go away
To another time, another place
To another world, another dream
Go away from me...

Go away from me, just go away...


Insanity - Oingo Boingo


Im so sorry, please forgive me
Who do I pray to to straighten out this problem?
Straighten out this problem, straighten out my mind.
Straighten out this crooked toungue...
My mind has wandered, from the straight and narrow.
My mind has wandered from the flock you see.
My mind has wandered, the man just said so.
My mind has wandered, I heard it on tv.
And the flock has wandered away from me.

-chorus-
All around the world now
Like a big bright cherry cloud
Traveling from home to home
Tv sets and telephones
Here it comes just like a storm
Bathe in it and be reborn
Time to let the world know
Welcome madness, say hello
Like a wave we cannot see
Washing over you and me
Hiding here and hiding there
Madness hiding everywhere
Such a curiosity
Here it comes to set us free
Plenty left for you and me
Say hello insanity

I am the virus, are you the cure?
I am morally, Im morally impure
I am a disease and I am unclean
I am not part of gods well oiled machine
Christian nation, assimilate me
Take me in your arms and set me free
I am part of a degenerate elite
Dragging our society into the streeet
Into the abyss and to the sewer dont you see
The man just told me, he told me on tv

Do you think youre better than me
Do you want to kill me or befriend me

And the alchoholic bastard waved his finger at me
His voice was filled with evanglical glee
Sipping down his gin and tonics
While preaching about the evils of narcotics
And the evils of sex, and the wages of sin
While he mental fondles his next of kin
My mind has wandered from the flock you see
And the flock has wandered away from me
And he waved his hypnotizing finger at me

Lets imitate reality
Lets strive for mediocrity
Lets make believe were all the same
Lets sanitize our little brains
Id love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
Id love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
Id love to hear you laugh tonight, Id love to hear you weep
Id love to listen to you while youre screaming in your sleep

Christian sons, christian daughters
Lead me along like a lamb to the slaughter
Purify my brain and hose down my soul
White perfection, perfection is my goal

Do you think youre better than me
Do you want to kill me or befriend me

Christian nation, make us alright
Put us through the filter and make us pure and white
My mind has wandered from the flock you see
And the flock has wandered away from me
Lets talk of family falues while we sit and watch the slaughter
Hypothetical abortions on imaginary daughters
The white folks think theyre on the top ask any proud white male
A million years of evolution, we get danny quayle

(chorus)

Id love to take you home with me, Id love to tuck you in
I wish I could protect you from the wages of our sin
Id love to hear you scream tonight, Id love to hear you cry
Protect you from the madness that is raining from the sky

(chorus)

Id love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
Id love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
I wish that I could keep you in a precious chinese box
On sundays I would pray for you so it would never stop
Id love to hear you laugh tonight, Id love to hear you weep
Id love to listen to you while youre screaming in your sleep
Id love to soothe you with my voice and take your hand in mine
Id love to take you past the stars and out of reach of time
Id love to see inside your mind, to tear it all apart
To cut you open with a knife and find your sacred heart
Id love to take your satin dolls and tear them all to shreds
Id love to mess your pretty hair, Id love to see you dead.

Today, I got in the mood to pull out 2 of my favorite metal albums, the only 2 ever recorded by 1 of my favorite metal bands of this decade, a band that sadly called it quits in September 2003, only 6 months or so after I discovered their music. A little band from Texas called Ünloco who were a rarity on the metal scene, for the fact that their band was comprised completely of hispanic/latino members. And they were damn good, too. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v148/JackTChance/Smilies/headbang.gif

So, here's a few of my favorites from their second (and sadly FINAL) album, Becoming I:"Watching Me Slip" by Ünloco (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUjUws6WP9s)

So I sit here alone,
trying to find my own
way to cope with everything
that I've done wrong
So I try real hard not to see
what you've done to me
But I couldn't find my heart

And there won't be any silence till it's gone
There won't be any silence till I'm…
Look away, you're watching me
as I slip away
'Cause everything I know just falls apart
Now it's me, as I slip away
'Cause everything that I know,
it just falls apart

So I try real hard not to see
what you've done to me
But I couldn't find a way
Then I'll see my own
way to cope with everything
that I've done wrong

And there won't be any silence till it's gone
There won't be any silence till I'm…
Look away, you're watching me
as I slip away
'Cause everything I know just falls apart
Now it's me, as I slip away
'Cause everything I know,
it just falls, it, it just,
it just falls apart, yes
'Cause I'm not enough to bring you down
I'm not enough to bring you down
I'm not enough to make you happy
I'm not enough to make you stay"Texas" by Ünloco (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jals-KUXpWo)

Sometimes I lie awake in bed
thinking about the things you said
So lost for words,
so lost to tell you how I feel
So terrified of changing
what I thought was real

It's too bad you're gone
It's too bad you're not alone
And I know that you couldn't see
that it's just too bad that you're gone
and not here with me

Standing here,
trying to make some sense of this
There's nothing between us,
still I can feel your awkwardness
You're so lost for words,
so you just tell me I'm your friend
There must be one reason,
only one reason, in the end
'Cause it's…

It's too bad you're gone
It's too bad you're not alone
And I know that you couldn't see
that it's just too bad that you're gone
and not here with me

So why are you pulling away?
And it must be from things that I say
And I'm thinking you're thinking of him
So why do I even care at all?And this last one is the song that made me an instant fan when I heard it performed in concert, and it's one EVERY guy should have available to him for when he's in a relationship that he wants to take to a higher level! Why? Because this song asks a very important question, one that should be asked of ANY significant other that you're thinking about making long-term plans with:"Failure" by Ünloco (http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/unloco/failure--2156658)

Maybe I,
I didn't seem to have a thing left to say
I bottled it far away
Maybe I,
I tried too hard to find someone to blame,
or maybe it's me who changed
And now,
I'm left with nothing again

So what if I lost everything?
Would you want me if I was a failure?
So what if I lost everything?
Would you be there even when I am gone?

Maybe I,
I didn't seem to give everything away
Not because I needed you to stay
And I,
I couldn't face the fears I left far behind
I try to answer every question to why
I'm left with nothing again

So what if I lost everything?
Would you want me if I was a failure?
So what if I lost everything?
Would you be there even when I am gone?

Maybe you couldn't see
all the pain inside of me
And now I feel like this was all for nothing
'Cuz I'm left with nothing,
I'm left with nothing again

So what if I lost everything?
Would you want me if I was a failure?

So what if I lost everything?
Would you want me if I was a failure?
So what if I lost everything?
Would you be there even when I am gone?

So what if I lost everything?
Would you want me if I,
if I was a failure?If your significant other can't truthfully answer "yes" to the questions asked in this song, throw her back, 'cuz she's not The One! :p

Sadly, no one has uploaded "Failure" to YouTube... NOT counting the lame cover that some dude recorded in his mom's basement, that is! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v148/JackTChance/Smilies/icon_rolleyes.gif

EDIT: Found the video for "Failure" on Yahoo Video, link inserted. :)

RE-EDIT: A decent Ünloco tribute site can be found HERE (http://unloco.bplaced.net/). :cool:

Time now for some classics, from the ORIGINAL metal band! :D"You Won’t Change Me" by Black Sabbath (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHTrH2EtRA4)

I'm just a man and I
am what I am, yeah
Nobody will ever change my ways
I don't need money and I
don't need your lies, yeah
I only need to live for today

But I'd like to talk things over with you
I wanna hear the things you say, today
Although you won't change me, anyway
Oh, no way

I wish you'd come and see me
I'd like to hold you
I wanna set my mind all free
You understand me woman
You give me time, yeah
But I don't need no sympathy

Still, I wonder what it's like to be loved
instead of hiding in myself
Nobody will change me, anyway
Oh, no way

Nobody's gonna change my world
That's something too unreal
Nobody will change the way I feel

So listen to me now
Hear what I say, yeah
Please give me time and maybe love
If there's a god up there, well,
I hope he helps me
I need him now to set me free

'Cause it may be that it's over for me
if you don't hear the things that I say, today
Nobody will change me, anyway
Oh, no way

Nobody's gonna change my world
That's something too unreal
Nobody will change the way I feel"Killing Yourself to Live" by Black Sabbath (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P2Y6CXp5GU)

Well people look and people stare
Well I don't think that I even care
You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only killing yourself to live

Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live

Just take a look around you, what do you see?
Pain, suffering, and misery
It's not the way that the world was meant
It's a pity you don't understand

Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live

I'm telling you
believe in me
Nobody else will tell you
Open your eyes
and see the lies
oh yeah

(*lyrics intentionally omitted*)

You think that I'm crazy,
and baby I know that it's true
Before that you know it,
I think that you'll go crazy too

I don't know if I'm up or down,
whether black is white or blue is brown
The colors in my life are all different somehow
Little Boy Blue's a big girl now!

So you think it's me who's strange,
but you've never had to make the change
Never give your trust away
You'll end up paying 'til your dying day!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v148/JackTChance/Smilies/headbang.gif

Can't believe we're 4 pages into this thread, and I haven't posted anything by Disturbed yet! :eek:

That ends now, with a few songs that remind me of some of my past... entanglements with the opposite sex:"Numb" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzLvZl1fGgs)

Bleeding, I’m
crying, I’m
falling, I’m
bleeding now
Bleeding, I’m
crying, I’m
falling, I’m
bleeding now

Bleeding now, I’m
crying out, I’m
falling down and I’m
feeling nothing like
laughing now, I’m
stopping now, I’m,
ooh, reaching out and I’m
feeling nothing

Yeah!
You created a rift within me!
Now there have been several complications
that have left me feeling nothing
I might say
you were wrong to take it from me
Left me feeling nothing

Crawling now, I’m
beaten down, I’m
tortured now and I’m
feeling nothing like
hunting now, I’m
stalking now, I’m
reaching out and I’m
killing nothing!

You created a rift within me!
Now there have been several complications
that have left me feeling nothing
I might say
you were wrong to take it from me
Left me feeling nothing

Ooh, I can feel you
ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me,
ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me

I want this
more than you know!
I need this
Give it back to me!

You created a rift within me!
You are the cause of these horrid complications that are
ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me,
yeah
You created a rift within me
Now there have been several complications that are
ripping, tearing,
feeding, growing,
ripping, tearing
ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me!

I want this
more than you know!
I need this
Give it back to me!"Want" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L4QtMu99j8)

She want me, no!

Your mind won’t let you say that you want me
Your mind won’t ever,
never let you say what you want
You howl and wail like a banshee,
still your mind won’t ever let you say
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me
Your mind won’t ever,
never let you say what you want
My little tired devotee,
your mind don’t even let you feel!

Quivering now, shivering now, withering
Your mind won’t let you say that you’re
wondering now, pondering now, hungering
Won’t let you say that you’re
questioning, wavering, weakening!
Your mind won’t let you say that you’re
hearkening, listening, heeding me now
Won’t let you say that you want!

Your mind won’t let you say that you want me
Your mind won’t ever,
never let you have what you want
I feel your hunger to taste me,
still your mind won’t ever let you say!
Your kind is just the type that should use me,
but your mind won’t seem to let you have
the opportunity to abuse me, abuse me
Your mind won’t even let you feel!

Quivering now, shivering now, withering
Your mind won’t let you say that you’re
wondering now, pondering now, hungering
Won’t let you say that you’re
questioning, wavering, weakening!
Your mind won’t let you say that you’re
hearkening, listening, heeding me now
Won’t let you say that you want…
me!

(Savor the addiction,
savor the affliction,
savor me
Savor the addiction,
savor the affliction,
no
Savor the addiction,
savor the affliction,
savor me
Savor the addiction,
savor the affliction!)

Savor the addiction,
savor the affliction,
savor me!
Savor her mind, yeah!

Idiot!
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me!
Idiot!
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me!
Idiot!
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me!
Because,
your mind won’t let you say that you want me, then want me!
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me, then want me!
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me, then want me!
Your mind won’t let you say that you want me, then want me!
What do you want?!
What do you want?!
What do you want?!
What do you want?!"Pain Redefined" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR73w6Vrgsk)

Nuh-hah-hah!

Nuh-hah-hah!

Fading, falling, lost in forever
Will I find a way to keep it together?
Am I strong enough to last through the weather
in the hurricane of my life?
Can it be a conscious decision
that I look for ways to alter my vision?
Am I speeding towards another collision
in the alleyways of my life?

Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
those who have fallen in
Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
those who have fallen in

Please believe me
that my eyes deceive me
Don't stand me up, just leave me
I have fallen again, this is the end
Pain redefined!

Shaking, burning up with the fever
In the realm of pain, I am the deceiver
Now I lie to myself, so I can believe her
as she disassembles my life
I cannot dispel the illusion
All my hopes and dreams are drowned by confusion
Can I find a way to make a solution
that will reconfigure my life?

Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
those who have fallen in
Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
Memories don't lie, you know better than
those who have fallen in

Please believe me
that my ears deceive me
Don't stand me up, just leave me
I have fallen again, this is the end
Pain redefined!

And I know that stillness shatters
We have all been frightened by the sound
of footsteps on the pavement of our lives

I stand and fight!
I'm not afraid to die!
Elochai!
Bury me tonight!

Please believe me
that the world deceives me
Don't stand me up, just leave me
I have fallen again, this is the end
Pain redefined!

Nuh-hah-hah!

Nuh-hah-hah!

"Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Green Day (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZ0CGHwoo6M)

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father's come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again,
falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again,
becoming who we are

As my memory rests,
but never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Ring out the bells again,
like we did when spring began
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again,
falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again,
becoming who we are

As my memory rests,
but never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father's come to pass
Twenty years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends"Whatsername" by Green Day (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F_9ND5SEDQ)

Thought I ran into you down on the street
Then it turned out to only be a dream
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face, but I can't recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Seems that she disappeared without a trace
Did she ever marry old what's his face?
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face, but I can't recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
The regrets are useless,
in my mind
She's in my head,
I must confess
The regrets are useless,
in my mind
She's in my head
from so long ago

(Go, Go, Go, Go)

(Go, Go, Go, Go)

And in the darkest night,
if my memory serves me right,
I'll never turn back time
Forgetting you, but not the time.............................................. ...

I can't believe I haven't posted this one yet... one of the all-time great heavy metal songs..."Veteran of the Psychic Wars" by Blue Öyster Cult (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrd2xf5DIlU)

You see me now, a veteran
of a thousand psychic wars
I've been livin' on the edge so long,
where the winds of limbo roar
And I'm young enough to look at
and far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside…
and I'm not sure that there's anything left of me!

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave!
We've been livin' in the flames,
we've been eatin' up our brains
Oh please, don't let these shakes go on

You ask me why I'm weary,
why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence,
say it's time I changed and grew
But the war's still goin' on dear
and there's no end that I know
And I can't say if we're ever…
I can't say if we're ever gonna be free!

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave!
We've been livin' in the flames,
we've been eatin' out our brains
Oh please, don't let these shakes go on

You see me now, a veteran
of a thousand psychic wars
My energy is spent at last
and my armor is destroyed
I have used up all my weapons
and I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of…
and did I hear you say that this is victory?

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it!
Send me to the rear!
Where the tides of madness swell,
and been slidin' into Hell
Oh please, don't let these shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on!
Don't let these shakes go on!I love this song because it works on so many levels: As a science fiction tale about a psychic warrior in the future.
As a commentary on war in general.
As a powerful metaphor for the mental struggles we all face in our everyday lives.And now, one of my favorite songs from the latest album by Disturbed..."The Curse" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZWYx-ioobQ)

Nuh-hah-hah!

Marked for demolition, I'm
just a time bomb, ticking inside
No hope for the hopeless,
I can see the pieces, all laid out in front of me
No point even asking why
Couldn't help, even if you tried
Step aside, or you might just be
the next contestant to feel the brutality!

Devastation, obliteration,
all to the point of exacerbation
There's no explaining my situation now
Why does this shit keep happening to me?

I've held on too long just to let it go now!
Will my inner strength get me through it somehow?
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender, I'll never be overcome

Too dark for forgiveness, I
can't seem to do anything right
When I try to rebuild,
I see my humble shelter just fall to the ground again!
Object of an evil eye
No point to let anyone try
Take heed, my friend,
lest you be torn asunder like all that's become of me!

Decimation, disintegration,
now beyond the point of imagination!
There's no explaining my situation now
Why does this shit keep happening to me?

I've held on too long just to let it go now!
Will my inner strength get me through it somehow?
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender, I'll never be overcome!

I've held on too long just to let it go now!
Will my inner strength get me through it somehow?
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender, I'll never be overcome!

I've held on too long just to let it go now!
Will my inner strength get me through it somehow?
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender, I'll never be overcome:muya:

We need some more posts in this thread! Why am I the only one posting lately? :confused:

Anyway, more Sonata Arctica..."My Dream's But a Drop of Fuel for a Nightmare" by Sonata Arctica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5P53ozwaec)

My painted face, I'm the clown,
and I'm laughing while my dream turns into a nightmare
Fade away, I'm asleep,
not too deep...

The walls of night have left me scarred,
the broken glass I stepped on twice
The ardent spirits' rusty edge, decapitate me...

I can't sleep, fear darkness
Go through the motions, did I fall asleep?
I'm bowling, the old nine pin, a sign unwanted...

Now I'm a target, I'm hot and frozen,
stormy rain, I'm stuck in an elevator,
wet from the muddy water,
breathing hot air, winds convey me...

bababababaaaa...
The number talks and I cry in my own Hell....
bababababaaaa...
Wide awake, I'm asleep, see a friend as a ghost

I'm skating with a seal,
the tarantula, the fly, the broken ring,
the dusty little flea,
an ugly giant, a disappointed child

Here comes a rabid snake,
the broken violin, a wild ballet
Shakespeare and company
refuse to kill the kitten scratching me...

I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling... awake

You know, if you believe the dreams,
the nightly visions, worlds entwined,
then you also fear your shadow,
paranoia, part two...

All the good things in my life dwell in my mind
Took a wrong lane, every day, I hear myself say
Sickening's this feeling, my life, my hopes,
my dream's but a drop of fuel for a nightmare

They all turn out the same
My destiny, my flame
Believing is control? No!
The painting comes alive,
takes me inside a world without a name,
a place beyond compare

Believe the dreams that let you sleep,
the broken glass you need to sweep
The book you read;
If you found an explanation to help you in any way,
you are your own prison!

Woke up today,
the good and the bad and the ugly dreams are gone
Jumped off the carousel"For the Sake of Revenge" by Sonata Arctica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbeNpJ3sIOk)

We have been stuck in here a day,
seeking answers for all eternity,
or something
Hear the meaning speaking in me
Have faith in me, have faith in me
I cannot say that I am fine and
take all you say at face value
I talk to you more than I have
Have faith in me, have faith in me

I've talked too much today,
you don't trust me
So I keep on talking in every way

Across the sea, I hear you calling me
For the sake of revenge, you command me
This ain't over, it's never over
'til the fat lady sings you love me
I am tired, yet I am swimming
You will not let go of me, you are drowning
as you're quietly pulling me under
We will never make it unless you let go!

There's no crime,
yet I stand accused
and I see the solution naked before me
You reduced me to a weapon, unlike you
Have faith in me, have faith in me

I cannot hear, though I incline my ear
Why do I even try?
I've told you all 'bout what I am
Have faith in me, have faith in me

I'm feeling weak today
Please don't crush me
I keep on walking far away
I keep on crawling, all in vain
I'm feeling slow today,
so don't rush me
We live this wretched serenade
You keep me playing anyway

Across the sea, I hear you calling me
For the sake of revenge, you will command me
This ain't over, it's never over
'til the fat lady sings you love me
I'm so tired, yet keep on swimming
You will not let go of me, you are drowning
Now you're quietly pulling me under
Oh, so quietly pulling me underNow come on, ya poozers! Let's make with the postin'! :p

"Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DMsgjqY6Wk)

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
with you
With you
(This world is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game to play, to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you

And, I don't want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
with you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
with you
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No I.........
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
Nobody loves no one..........

Yeah,
bringing you another disturbing creation,
from the mind of one sick animal who can't tell the difference,
and gets stupified!

Well I've been waiting my whole life for just one FUCK!
And all I needed was just one FUCK!
How can you say that you don't give a FUCK?
I find myself stupified,
coming back again
All I wanted was just one FUCK!
One tiny little innocent FUCK!
And when I feel like I'm shit out of LUCK,
I find myself stupified,
coming back again

Why do you like playing around with
my narrow scope of reality?
I can feel it all start slipping,
I think I'm breaking down
Why do you like playing around with
my narrow scope of reality?
I can feel it all start slipping away

You see but I don't get it
Don't you think
maybe we could put it on credit?
Don't you think
it can take control when I don't let it?
I get stupified!
It's all the same,
you say "live with it",
but I don't get it
Don't you think
maybe we could put it on credit?
Don't you think
it can take control when I don't let it?
I get stupified!
I get stupified!

And all the people in the left-wing FUCK!
And all the people in the right-wing FUCK!
And all the people in the underground FUCK!
I find myself stupified,
coming back again
All the people in the high-rise FUCK!
And all the people in the projects FUCK!
And all the henté in the barrio FUCK!
I find myself stupified,
coming back again

Why do you like playing around with
my narrow scope of reality?
I can feel it all start slipping,
I think I'm breaking down
Why do you like playing around with
my narrow scope of reality?
I can feel it all start slipping away

You see but I don't get it
Don't you think

I get stupified!
It's all the same,

Don't you think

I get stupified!
I get stupified!

If I fail
If I fail

And don't deny me!
No baby now,
don't deny me!
And darling,
don't be afraid!

But I don't get it
Don't you think
maybe we could put it on credit?
Don't you think
it can take control when I don't let it?
I get stupified!
Look in my face,
stare in my soul,
I begin to stupify!
Rah!
Look in my face,
stare in my soul,
I begin to stupify!
Rah!
Look in my face,
stare in my soul,
I begin to stupify!
Rah!
Look in my face,
stare in my soul,
I begin to stupify!
Rah!
Look in my face,

Look in my face,

Look in my face,
stare in my soul
Look in my face!
Look in my face!
Look in my face!
I begin to stupify!
Rah!And yes, I realize that "stupify" is a misspelling, but that's the way Disturbed spelled it in all the liner notes, so that's the way it's staying. Don't like it? Tough. :p"Mistress" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjErTAsaRVU)

(My mistress)

I stand on the brink of your mind
Living inside a nightmare from which
I just cannot awaken
Stand on the edge of your life
Just give me another moment
from which I will never awaken!

Stand on the brink of my own demise
Fallen again for another
mistress of burden to idolize
Hoping that one of them will decide
to let me in!

(My mistress)

To stand on the edge of the knife
Cutting through the nightmare from which
I just cannot awaken
Stand on the edge of the night
Living inside a moment
from which I will never awaken!

Stand on the brink of my own demise
Fallen again for another
mistress of burden to idolize
Hoping that one of them will decide
to let me in

Look at what you've done to me
You've become my enemy
Poisoning the world for me
Take away my everything
Weakened as I am!

(Never)
Awaken!

Stand on the brink of my own demise
Fallen again for another
mistress of burden to idolize
Hoping that one of them will decide
to let me in!

(My mistress)
Decide to let me in!
(My mistress)
Decide to let me in!"Guarded" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyHA940QEY4)

Guarding yourself from the love of another
left you with nothing tonight
Why does it sound like the devil is laughing,
leaving me haunted tonight?
You did decide!

Now I want you, when you're gone, and now it's like
you're holding something just in front of me
Well then, I can't allow this to become another
one of those times that I'm left in the cold, dead
There's no compromise!
Just another tie
I know I need to sever

Guarding yourself from the love of another
left you with nothing tonight
Why does it sound like the devil is laughing,
leaving me haunted tonight?
You did decide!

Ever haunted by the trappings of this life
Sweet redemption just in front of me
Well now, it seems once again that I've lost another
one of the ones that have broke through the wall, damned
Fate won't compromise!
I have sold my soul
and now the devil's laughing
You did decide!

You were bold and strong, and ready to begin your life
All for nothing, you were sacrificed
You began alone, and so it will be when you die
All for nothing, will you be remembered?
You did decide!

Guarding yourself from the love of another
left you with nothing tonight
So now you know why the devil is laughing
He left you with nothing tonight
You did decide!"Overburdened" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyH0l5-3p1c)

(Fate is so unkind
Now I should have known
Blind leading the blind
Reaping what I've sown
If it all amounts to nothing, why,
why am I standing in this line?)

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
I may never know for certain
when will be my time
How was I considered evil?
Pleasures taken in this life?
Someone granted me reprieval
Decades spent in strife…

led to nothing
Repeated in my mind
Led to nothing
If only I was born another time

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How have I been so determined malign?

It's the closing of the curtain
in the play that was my life
Countless chapters left unopened,
tragedies inside
I was fighting for a reason,
holy blessed homicide
Seems I have committed treason
All I've sacrificed…

led to nothing
Repeated in my mind
Led to nothing
If only I was born another time

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How have I been so determined malign?
Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How have I been so determined malign?

Fate is so unkind
Now I should have known
Blind leading the blind
Reaping what I've sown
If it all amounts to nothing,
why, then, am I standing in this line?

Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How have I been so determined malign?
Hell is still overburdened
I must stand and wait in line
Hell is still overburdened
How have I been so determined malign?"Haunted" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCSImHyykNM)

You're broken, so am I
I'm better off alone
No one to turn to
and nothing to call my own
Outspoken, so am I
Explosive words,
that your world wouldn't understand
Turn away again
You're beaten, so am I
I've got a heart of stone
No medication can cure what has taken hold
You're hurting, so will I
When I awake and remember why I've been
running from your…

world,
dishonored by your world
Your world,
I'm haunted by your world

My blood is cold as ice
Or so I have been told
Show no emotion
and it can destroy your soul
Another sacrifice,
to a tormentor
your world wouldn't understand
Turn away again
You're angered, so am I
A thousand fires burn
A land of darkness,
from which I cannot return
You're aching, so will I
When I awake and discover that I've been
damaged by your…

world,
dishonored by your world
Your world,
I'm haunted by your world

(Never will I be welcome amongst
the heartless monsters you surround yourself with
Feeding off the pain and misfortune of others
A maniacal breed of sub-human parasites,
thrown into a feeding frenzy with the smell of fresh blood
Open your eyes and see the creatures for what they are
A swirling mess of hatred and envy
Don't be naïve enough to think you're unaffected
The conversion has already begun)

You're frightened, so am I
A world of demons wait
Watching our movements
and filling my heart with hate
You're burning, so will I
When I awake and discover how I've been
ravaged by your…

world,
dishonored by your world
Your world,
I'm haunted by your world:super:

Guess which band I've been heavily listening to all night? Go on, guess! ;)

"This Time" by 3 Doors Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpQf930WiDw)

Unsure of yourself
You stand divided now
Reach over, lead you there
Last time
you fell and you hit hard
Your wounds have healed by now,
but you still see your scars, yeah

But it's not
the way it used to be right now
You've come so far
to just let this go, my friend
Don't go out the same way
you did the last time, you'll break
When you fall, don't make the same mistakes
you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself
this time

Live on,
live it up today
This life's your cup,
so drink it up I say, yeah

Say it's mine
so give it all up to me now
And walk that line,
don't let this go, my friend
Don't go out the same way
you did the last time, you'll break
When you fall, don't make the same mistakes
you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself
this time
This time

Life's your cup,
life's your cup
Drink it up
Life's your cup, yeah
Life's your cup,
Whoa-oh-oh

The same way
you did the last time, you'll break
When you fall, don't make the same mistakes
you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself
The same way
you did the last time, you'll break
When you fall, don't make the same mistakes
you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself
this time..........

When I am Queen - Jack off Jill

When I am queen I will insist, with perfect scars upon my wrists
That everything you once held dear is taken away from you

When I am queen sweet Girl Scout's face, and not a one will fall from grace
If all their hearts I could replace, but until then I'll have to...

Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown

When I am queen on royal throne made out of parts of broken bones
Of all the devils I have known that suck the angels dry

When I am queen I'll have my way, I'll make it drowning dolly day
And all the tears that we have cried will suck back in our eyes

Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown

Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown

Hush, baby
Hush, baby
Hush, baby, go to sleep
Hush, baby
Hush, baby
Hush, baby, I'll make it be

When I am queen I will not wait, my body type will still be great
I will not leave it up to fate, because I hate you, too

When I am queen they all will see the patron saint of self-injury
The glitter sores will heal themselves, I'll play the part of someone else

Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown, drown, drown, myself
Drown



Bad Habit -Dresden Dolls

biting keeps your words at bay
tending to the sores that stay
happiness is just a gash away
when i open a familiar scar
pain goes shooting like a star
comfort hasn't failed to follow so far...

and you might say it's self-indulgent
you might say its self-destructive
but, you see, it's more productive
than if i were to be healthy

& pens and penknives take the blame
crane my neck & scratch my name
but the ugly marks
are worth the momentary gain...
when i jab a sharpened object in
choirs of angels seem to sing
hymns of hate in memorandum

and you might say it's self-indulgent
and you might say it's self-destructive
but, you see, it's more productive
than if i were to be happy

and sappy songs about sex and cheating
bland accounts of two lovers meeting
make me want to give mankind a beating

and you might say it's self-destructive
but, you see, i'd kick the bucket
sixty times before i'd kick the habit

and as the skin rips off i cherish the revolting thought
that even if i quit
there's not a chance in hell i'd stop
and anyone can see the signs
mittens in the summertime
thank you for your pity, you are too kind

and you might say its self-inflicted
but you see that's contradictive
why on earth would anyone practice self destruction?

and pain opinions are sitcom feeding
they dont know that their minds are teething
makes me want to give mankind a beating

i'm tried bandages and sinking
i've tried gloves and even thinking
i've tried vaseline
i've tried everything
and no-one cares if your back is bleeding
they're concerned with their hair receding
looking back it was all maltreating
every thought that occurred misleading

makes me want to give myself a beating....

A bunch from Husker Du:

Never Talking To You Again

There are things that I'd like to say
But I'm never talking to you again
There's things I'd like to phrase some way
But I'm never talking to you again

I'm never talking to you again
I'm never talking to you
I'm tired of wasting all my time
Trying to talk to you

I'd put you down where you belong
But I'm never talking to you again
I'd show you everywhere you're wrong
But I'm never talking to you again

Something I Learned Today

Something I learned today
Black and white is always grey
Looking through the window pane
I'm not inside your brain
Something I learned today
Yield to the right-of-way
Stopping at a 4-way sign
Someone else's rules, not mine

Something I learned today
Never look straight in the sun's rays
Letting all the sunshine in
Can't remember where I've been

Broken Home, Broken Heart

I look at your house
I wonder what goes on inside
When you have to cry yourself to sleep at night
Your parents fight
You don't know who's wrong or right
Have to cry yourself to sleep at night

A broken home, a broken heart
When the two of them will have to part
Broken home, broken heart
Now you know just how it feels
To have to cry yourself to sleep at night

You know what, screw this. Just buy Zen Arcade.

Husker Du--Celebrated Summer

Love and hate was in the air, like pollen from a flower
Somewhere in April time, they add another hour

I guess I'd better think up a way to spend my time
Just when I'm ready to sit inside, it's summer time
Should I go fishing or get a friend to hang around
It's back to summer, back to basics, hang around

Getting drunk out on the beach, or playing in a band
And getting out of school meant getting out of hand

Was this your celebrated summer? Was that your celebrated summer?

Then the sun disintegrates between a wall of clouds
I summer where I winter at, and no one is allowed there

Do you remember when the first snowfall fell
When summer barely had a snowball's chance in Hell?

Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely

I'm curious to know exactly how you are
I keep my distance but that distance is too far
It reassures me just to know that you're okay
But I don't want you to go on needing me this way

And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know if you are less than lonely
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know, don't want to know

The day you left me, left me feeling oh so bad
Still I'm not sure about all the doubts we had
From the beginning we both knew it wouldn't last
Decisions have been made the die has been cast

The phone is ringing and the clock says four A.M.
If it's your friends, well I don't want to hear from them
Please leave your number and a message at the tone
Or you can just go on and leave me alone

"Releasing the Demons" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drtwBiqHyjw)

(What do you see when you're in the dark,
when the demons come for you?)

If only you could have seen
how fucked up my life used to be
Then everything starts to change,
supposedly healing my pain
I never thought I'd feel this way
I never thought that I'd see a day
I'd run away from anything or anywhere or anyone
It's all these demons haunting me
It's all these little things trapped inside of me
Releasing me from all my sin!

It's taken me all of my anger
and taken me all of my hate
to learn how my life came together
Releasing the demons again!

And now I look through my mind's eye
and see where my past needs to rest
It's always disturbed by these voices
that echo inside of my head!
Another way that I can hide
Another reason to crawl inside and get away
from everything and everywhere and everyone
NO!
It's all these demons haunting me
It's all these little things trapped inside of me
Releasing me from all my sin!

It's taken me all of my anger
and taken me all of my hate
to learn how my life came together
Releasing the demons... again

Facin' the days as I grow into my own
Loving and hating's the same
And three-fold, I told you
it comes back with laughter,
over and over again
It's coming back!

It's taken me all of my anger
and taken me all of my hate
to learn how my life came together
Releasing…
Releasing the demons again!
Releasing the demons again
Releasing the demons again!
Releasing the demons again
Releasing the demons!:super: ..........

Indestructible by Disturbed

Another mission, the powers have called me away
Another time to carry the colors again
My motivation, an oath I've sworn to defend
To win the honor of coming back home again

No explanation will matter after we begin
Unlock the dark destroyer that's buried within
My true vocation and now my unfortunate friend
You will discover a war you're unable to win

I'll have you know
That I've become

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war!

Another reason, another cause for me to fight
Another fuse uncovered now, for me to light
My dedication to all that I've sworn to protect
I carry out my orders without a regret

My declaration embedded deep under my skin
A permanent reminder of how it began
No hesitation when I am commanded to strike
You need to know that you're in for the fight of your life

You will be shown
How I've become

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war!

I'm indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I am indestructible

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war!

Gin Blossoms--Found Out About You


All last summer in case you don't recall
I was yours and you were mine forget it all
Is there a line that I could write
Sad enough to make you cry
All the lines you wrote to me were lies
The months roll past the love that you struck dead
Did you love me only in my head?
Things you said and did to me
Seemed to come so easily
The love I thought I'd won you give for free

Whispers at the bus stop
I heard about nights out in the school yard
I found out about you

Rumors follow everywhere you go
Like when you left and I was last to know
You're famous now and there's no doubt
In all the places you hang out
They know your name and they know what you're about

Whispers at the bus stop
I heard about nights out in the school yard
I found out about you

Street lights blink on through the car window
I get the time too often on AM radio
You know it's all I think about
I write your name drive past your house
Your boyfriend's over I watch your light go out

Whispers at the bus stop
I heard about nights out in the school yard
I found out about you

Indestructible by DisturbedEvery time I listen to "Indestructible", all I can think of is the Master Chief from the Halo games! When the Halo movie finally gets made, "Indestructible" needs to be Master Chief's theme song! :super:

Back in 2007, I discovered one of the best metal bands in the world... Within Temptation, hailing from Holland! Here's a couple of my favorite songs from them, and I can't recommend the band enough! They're perfect for fans of other modern European metal bands such as Nightwish and Lacuna Coil. Check them out when you get a chance, you'll be glad you did! :D"Final Destination" by Within Temptation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCogfVffL2U)

I escaped my final moment,
but it's turning back at me
On every corner I can feel it, waiting
Just a moment, no awareness
I could easily slip away
And then I'll be gone forever!

I'm searching,
I'm fighting for a way to get through,
to turn it away

It's waiting, always trying
I feel the hands of fate,
they're suffocating
Tell me what's the reason
Is it all inside my head?
Can't take it no more!

All around me I see danger
and it's closing in on me
Every second I can hear it, breathing
I can't stand the fear inside me,
'cause it's leading me astray
And it will be my ending!

I'm searching,
I'm fighting for a way to get through,
to turn it away

It's waiting, always trying
I feel the hands of fate,
they're suffocating
Tell me what's the reason
Is it all inside my head?
Can't take it no more!

But now I'll face what's coming my way
And I will let my fear fade away
Whatever may be, I'll have to find out

It's waiting, always trying
Feel the hands of fate,
they're suffocating
Tell me what's the reason
Is it all inside my head?
Can't take it no more!"The Howling" by Within Temptation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bqRn0rLq1c)

We've been seeing what you wanted,
got us cornered right now
Fallen asleep from our vanity,
might cost us our lives

I hear they're getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
And time is running out now
They're coming down the hills from behind

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created,
I want to be awakened somehow
(I want to be awakened right now)

When we start killing,
it all will be falling down
From the Hell that we're in,
all we are is fading away
When we start killing...

We've been searching all night long,
but there's no trace to be found
It's like they all have just vanished,
but I know they're around

I feel they're getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
And time is running out now
They're coming down the hills from behind

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created,
I want to be awakened somehow
(I want to be awakened right now)

When we start killing,
it all will be falling down
From the Hell that we're in,
all we are is fading away
When we start killing...
When we start killing...

I feel they're getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
And time is running out now
They're coming down the hills from behind

The sun is rising
The screams have gone
Too many have fallen
Few still stand tall
Is this the ending
of what we've begun?
Will we remember
what we've done wrong?

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created,
I want to be awakened somehow
(I want to be awakened right now)

When we start killing,
it all will be falling down
From the Hell that we're in,
all we are is fading away
When we start killing...
When we start killing...
When we start killing...:super:

"Destroyed" by Within Temptation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yec5PnolT6o)

I did my best to please you,
but my best was never good enough
Somehow you're only able to see
all I am not

Do you ever look behind?
Aren't you afraid of the pieces you'll find?
I have failed you,
but you have failed me too

It's so easy to destroy and condemn
the ones you do not understand
Do you ever wonder if it's justified?

It's so easy to destroy and condemn
the ones you do not understand
In your life, why didn't you ever try?

I close my eyes as I walk
the thin line between love and hate,
for the person with the same blood in his veins

You show no regrets
about all the things you did or said
I have failed you,
but believe me, you failed me too

It's so easy to destroy and condemn
the ones you do not understand
Do you ever wonder if it's justified?

It's so easy to destroy and condemn
the ones you do not understand
In your life, why didn't you ever try?

It's so easy to destroy and condemn
the ones you do not understand
Do you ever wonder if it's justified?

It's so easy to destroy and condemn
the ones you do not understand
Do you ever wonder if it's justified?..........

Those of you that have paid careful attention to my posts will have realized by now that I am a very politically incorrect individual. I speak my mind, freely, and I don't overly concern myself with what others think of what I have to say. I happen to think political correctness is one of the worst things to ever happen to this country world, and I fight it at every opportunity. :devil:

Therefore, this is one of my favorite alternative rock songs, by a band that hails from my neck of the woods (SR-71 are originally from Baltimore! :D)"Politically Correct" by SR-71 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1MpfTcsV0g)

Well, I don't mean to piss you off
with things I might say
So when I try to shut my mouth,
they come out anyway
So when I speak my mind,
that's when we connect
Yeah, but that's not
politically correct

Your head's so filled with thought,
you can't use your imagination
Like a sky so filled with stars,
you can't find a constellation!
And everyone's so sensitive
to any bad vibration
We're so impressing
while we're regressing!

'Cause I don't mean to piss you off
with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth,
they come out anyway

There's nothing I believe in more
than my own insignificance
So, why does everybody think
my words can make a difference?
I just don't have time to think up
every social consequence!
I'll just keep on talking
and you keep applauding!

'Cause I don't mean to piss you off
with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth,
they come out anyway
And if you spoke your mind,
you might feel more connected,
until you stand politically corrected!

You lean a little to the left or the right, but
you can only see who's on your side
Look a little like a deer in the headlights,
a little blind and hypnotized!
So, you conform with the best of intention
Change comes from inside
And after all that's what this country was founded on,
do nothing different, just fall in line! :rolleyes:
Tell me what happened to make us so afraid that
you couldn't make a Mel Brooks movie today?
No! I saw "Blazing Saddles" yesterday

I don't mean to piss you off
with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth,
they come out anyway
And I don't mean to piss you off
with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth,
they come out anyway:cool:

An oldie, but a goodie, that sums up how I'm feeling right now."Get It Right" by The Offspring (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgLyZFmIfTU)

I've been told that to get what you want,
you just gotta give what you can
But I know, for what I want, it don't come easy as that
They say, "Look out, boy,
tomorrow comes and things will look better by then"
But I'll look out the window,
then look in the mirror at the same old me again

I still can't get it right
I still can't get it right
I still can't get it right
And for all I know,
I swear I never will!

Do you think you'd sell your soul
to just have one thing turn out right?
For the thousandth time, you turn and find
that it just makes no difference to try
Like Holden Caulfield, I tell myself
there's got to be a better way
Then I lay in bed and stare at the ceiling,
dream of brighter days

I still can't get it right
I still can't get it right
I still can't get it right
And for all I know,
I swear I never will
No way out!
Same old stuff always drags me down
No way out!
Never gonna get it, gettin' old!

No way out
No way out
No way out
No way out
Get it right now
No way out
Get it right now
No way out
Get it right now
No way out
Get it right, right, right, right…
I still can't get…
I still can't get it right!
I still can't get it right
And for all I know,
I swear I, swear I,
never never never never!:(

I'm feeling philosophical tonight, so here's a couple songs with some religious themes...

WARNING! THESE SONG LYRICS EXAMINE THE DARK SIDE OF ORGANIZED RELIGION! IF YOU ARE DEVOUTLY RELIGIOUS AND/OR EASILY OFFENDED, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!!!

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!"The Truth Beneath the Rose" by Within Temptation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyuJI73Uxns&feature=related)

Give me strength to face the truth,
the doubt within my soul
No longer I can justify
the bloodshed in His name

Is it a sin to seek the truth,
the truth beneath the rose?
Pray with me, so I will find
the gate to Heaven's door

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

Blinded to see
the cruelty of the beast
It is the darkest side of me
(Forgive me my sins)

The veil of my dreams
deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
(Forgive me my sins)

Pray for me, 'cause I have lost
my faith in holy wars
Is paradise denied to me
'cause I can take no more?

Has darkness taken over me,
consumed my mortal soul?
All my virtues sacrificed
Can Heaven be so cruel?

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me
(Forgive me my sins)

Blinded to see
the cruelty of the beast
It is the darkest side of me
(Forgive me my sins)

The veil of my dreams
deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
(Forgive me my sins)

I'm hoping, I'm praying
I won't get lost between two worlds
For all I've seen,
the truth lies in between

Give me the strength to face
the wrong that I have done
Now that I know
the darkest side of me

How can blood be your salvation,
and justify the pain that
we have caused throughout the times?

Will I learn what's truly sacred?
Will I redeem my soul?
Will truth set me free?

(Forgive me my sins)

Blinded to see
the cruelty of the beast
It is the darkest side of me
(Forgive me my sins)

The veil of my dreams
deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
(Forgive me my sins)"Believe" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECcbhQVqOZA)

Believe, when you lie
You will never need to recognize yourself
to deceive
To remove all chance of doubt and be received
with your lie
The deception is complete when you concede
and decide
to reject your lives,
sacrificed to me

Penance can't absolve your sin
Into me
Penance can't absolve your sin
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin

Believe, when you lie
You will never need to recognize the source
of deceit
To renew your faith in God, you must believe
in your lie
The redemption is complete when you conceive
and decline
to release your lives,
sacrificed to me

Penance can't absolve your sin
Into me
Penance can't absolve your sin
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin

Ooh, reap your life, like you want to
Recognize all you've come to
Reap your life, like you want to
Recognize all you've come to
Reap your life,
veiled in shadow
Recognize
faces of the crucified
I can hear their screams tonight,
ever haunting me!

Burn your lie
into me
Penance can't absolve your sin
Into me
Penance can't absolve your sin
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin
Hello!
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin
Hello!
All your belief
cannot absolve your sin:super:

Falling To Pieces - Faith No More

Back and forth, I sway with the wind
Resolution slips away again
Right through my fingers, back into my heart
Where it's out of reach and it's in the dark
Sometimes I think I'm blind
Or I may be just paralyzed

Because the plot thickens every day
And the pieces of my puzzle keep crumblin' away
But I know, there's a picture beneath
Indecision clouds my vision
No one listens...

Because I'm somewhere in between
My love and my agony
You see, I'm somewhere in between
My life is falling to pieces
Somebody put me together

Layin' face down on the ground
My fingers in my ears to block the sound
My eyes shut tight to avoid the sight
Anticipating the end, losing the will to fight
Droplets of "yes" and "no"
In an ocean of "maybe"

From the bottom, it looks like a steep incline
From the top, another downhill slope of mine
But I know, the equilibrium's there
Indecision clouds my vision
No one listens

Because I'm somewhere in between
My love and my agony
You see, I'm somewhere in between
My life is falling to pieces
Somebody put me together

This is a song that takes me back... it makes me think about ex-girlfriends long gone, women that broke my heart years ago..."Good Enough Is Good Enough" by Sonata Arctica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tCOKr9hA1M)

It was not hard - to choose all the words that I should
put in your mouth
in my own play of shadows
Between lines, word for word, honey
See who I am?
Out where nothing's forgiven
A small yet very loud part of me is still screaming after you...

Good enough was good enough for me
as it should always be
You broke my heart when it was weak
Guess you were not meant for me...

I had a dream you broke - with your twisted ways
Still leaving me? Please take your time, but go away
Don't flash that light anymore, honey...
The seasons change...
I was the summer to your heart
The winter lured you away more than once, now I know:
I am free

Good enough was good enough for me
as it should always be
You broke my heart and still I grieve
How can you be over me?

I always thought we'd made it, found a way to live together
You saved the best for last and now it's too late
I count the hours of the day that
seems to last forever
Words through the door
A glance from a broken window
I found your key from the floor
and my heart, suddenly, cut off clean

Good enough was good enough for me
as it should always be
You broke my heart and still I grieve
How can you be over me?

Good enough was good enough for me
as it should always be
You spread a tale of lies about me
And I believed it, my heart's got a leak…

18 And Life - Skid Row

Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone.
Lived nne to five and he worked his fingers to the bone.
Just barely out of school, came from the edge of town.
Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down, no.
He had no money, no, no good at home.
He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone.

And now it's

18 and life, you got it
18 and life, you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go

(repeat above)

Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burned gasoline.
It kept his motor running, but it never kept him clean.
They say he loved adventure, "Ricky's the wild one."
He married trouble, had a courtship with a gun.
Bang-bang shoot 'em up, the party never ends.
You can't think of dying when the bottle's your best friend.

And now it's

chorus

"Accidents will happen", they all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind - that shot blew a child away.

"Something I Can Never Have" by Nine Inch Nails (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zy5gXC2AgbY)

I still recall the taste of your tears
Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears
My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore
Scraping through my head 'til I don't want to sleep anymore

You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I'm down to just one thing
and I'm starting to scare myself
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I just want something,
I just want something I can never have

You always were the one to show me how
Back then I couldn't do the things that I can do now
This thing is slowly taking me apart
Gray would be the color, if I had a heart

Come on and tell me
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I'm down to just one thing
and I'm starting to scare myself
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I just want something,
I just want something I can never have

In this place it seems like such a shame
Though it all looks different now,
I know it's still the same
Everywhere I look, you're all I see
Just a fading fucking reminder of who I used to be

Come on and tell me!
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I'm down to just one thing
and I'm starting to scare myself
You make this all go away
You make it all go away
I just want something,
I just want something I can never have

I just want something I can never have..........

This is one of my favorite heavy metal songs about war, and the soldiers that fight and die in our wars."Disposable Heroes" by Metallica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUQz_eTe4kg)

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
Running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should be
A servant 'til I fall

Soldier boy, made of clay
Now an empty shell
Twenty one, only son,
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
Do just as we say
Finished here, greetings Death,
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
You will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
You will die when I say you must die
Back to the front
You coward
You servant
You blind man

Barking of machine gun fire, does nothing to me now
Sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
More a man, more stripes you wear, glory seeker trends
Bodies fill the fields I see
The slaughter never ends

Soldier boy, made of clay
Now an empty shell
Twenty one, only son,
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
Do just as we say
Finished here, greetings Death,
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
You will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
You will die when I say you must die
Back to the front
You coward
You servant
You blind man

Why am I dying?
Kill, have no fear
Lie, live off lying
Hell, Hell is here

Why am I dying?
Kill, have no fear
Lie, live off lying
Hell, Hell is here

I was born for dying!

Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
Had no chance to see myself, molded day by day
Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
Left to die with only friend
Alone I clench my gun

Soldier boy, made of clay
Now an empty shell
Twenty one, only son,
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
Do just as we say
Finished here, greetings Death,
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
You will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
You will die when I say you must die
Back to the front
You coward
You servant
You blind man

Back to the front
Back to the front
Back to the front
Back to the front
Back to the front:super:

And now I come to what is very probably my favorite song off of Disturbed's third studio album, Ten Thousand Fists. This is the Chicago quartet's wonderfully scathing indictment of the American Idol-fueled manufactured pop star industry..."Sons of Plunder" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVftXmopJt4)

Hah, hah, tell me you like it
Hah, hah, tell me you like it

You say you found yourself a new sound
The shit's loaded and they're ready to go
A bit too much just like the old sound
Already heard it for the hundredth time
One hundred more, all have the same sound
Running around with all the sheep that you know
"It's so sublime, they're breaking new ground
They're sure to have another hit this time"

Come on,
can't you just leave it alone?
It doesn't have any soul!
Just find a thing of your own
and stop pretending to know

As the countless numbers hunger
for worldwide renown
All the pimping sons of plunder
will roll up their sleeves
All searching for the answers
they don't even care to know
Give it to me, give it to me
You like it?

I'm still surrounded by the "new sound"
I've had enough and I'm ready to go
A stranglehold throughout the world now
The new obsession will fade in time
A thin reminder of the past now
All convoluted, hardly ready to go
Their whines and moans will never last now
I think you've given us our fill this time

Come on,
can't you just leave it alone?
It doesn't have any soul!
Just find a thing of your own
and stop pretending to know

As the countless numbers hunger
for worldwide renown
All the pimping sons of plunder
will roll up their sleeves
All searching for the answers
they don't even care to know
Give it to me, give it to me
You like it?

As it's blown apart,
hundreds thrown away
Makes me question just what I believe
Brothers torn apart,
mindless drones enslaved
Makes me search for an answer
I don't want to know!
It's like a plague from below!
Killing all that I know!
One hundred voices the same!
Drench their sorrow in flame

As the countless numbers hunger
for worldwide renown
All the pimping sons of plunder
will roll up their sleeves
All searching for the answers
they don't even care to know
Give it to me, give it to me

As the countless numbers hunger
for worldwide renown
All the pimping sons of plunder
will roll up their sleeves
All searching for the answers
they don't even care to know
Give it to me, give it to me
You like it?

Hah, hah, hah, hah,
tell me you like it
Hah, hah, hah, hah,
tell me you like it
Hah, hah, hah, hah,
tell me you like it
Hah, hah, hah, hah,
tell me you like it:muya:

"Open Your Eyes" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEfU4ss98ZA)

As I walk along these streets,
I see a man who walks alone
Distant echo of people's feet,
he has no place to call his own
A shot rings out from a roof overhead
A crackhead asks for change nearby
An old man lies in an alleyway dead
A little girl lost just stands there and cries

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

A boy, just thirteen, on the corner for sale
swallows his pride for another hit
Overpopulation, there's no room in jail
And most of you don't give a shit
that your daughters are porno stars,
and your sons sell death to kids
You're so lost in your little worlds,
your little worlds you'll never fix!

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

You turn away
You turn away
You turn away
You turn away

As I walk along these streets,
I'm soaking up the acid rain
Underneath a taxi cab,
I hear the streets cry out in vain!

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?:cool: ..........

Here's 2 of my favorites from Staind's most recent album, The Illusion of Progress. With these 2 songs, Staind continues their trend of getting back in touch with metal's roots in the blues*. :cool:"Raining Again" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-PWAEyYNeo)

A piece of glass,
in the sand under your feet
It cuts you deep
and makes you hate
the beauty that you see
Then you wonder where you are,
how you ever got so far
Now you question what went wrong
It's your heart!

It's raining again
There's a dark cloud
over your head
It follows you 'round
It's bringing you down
It's raining,
it's raining again

A wilted rose
in your bouquet is all you see
You buy the flaws
and miss the beauty
that is yours for free
Realize you are so far
from the things that matter now
And you only wonder how
It's your heart!

It's raining again
There's a dark cloud
over your head
It follows you 'round
It's bringing you down
It's raining,
it's raining again

Come on,
come on, get it right
Come on,
come on, make it right
Come on,
come on, it's alright

It's raining again
There's a dark cloud
over your head
It follows you 'round
It's bringing you down
It's raining,
it's raining again

It's raining,
raining again
There's a dark cloud
over your head"The Corner" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RIqgU48yNk)

It sheltered me from nothing but the weather
I called it home for a moment of my life
This place I see just doesn't look familiar
I wonder if it looks the same inside?

So there's the corner that I sat on
The road I walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

Days go by,
nothing's getting clearer
Can't change my mind,
my troubles are the same
Faces change,
the names they are familiar
And the streets I see
will stand the test of time

So there's the corner that I sat on
The road I walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

And those stars,
stars still shine,
shine down through the rain

And there's the corner that I sat on
The road I walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

And I stare out this dirty window,
as this world goes slowly by
And somewhere out there is the future
that I once thought had passed me by

It sheltered me from nothing but the weather*A little fact that only the best heavy metal fans know is that Black Sabbath, the band that invented the metal sound, actually began its life as a BLUES band called Earth. Over the course of their first year or 2 developing their sound, they eventually came up with the idea of making the musical equivalent of a horror movie, on the theory that people gladly paid good money to watch a movie that would scare them, so they should do the same for scary music. And thus the band renamed themselves after a horror movie that had been playing in a theater across the street from where they rehearsed, and heavy metal was born. But in Sabbath's albums, you can still hear the influence the blues had on the band, and the best metal bands to this day will still incorporate some elements of the blues into their music. :cool:

Just a reeally short one for me, only short because that's what it is, from the Halo ODST Advert, but I really love it

Gafflwn Dihenydd
O’r fuddugol yn wiriol sydd,
Ni fydd neb yn ein drechu,
Falch ydy ni I drochu,

Traed o flaen I’r Annwn,
mewn y gwybodaeth fe godwn ni.

Gafflwn Dihenydd
O’r fuddugol yn wiriol sydd,

Traed o flaen I’r Annwn,
mewn y gwybodaeth fe godwn ni.

Which in english is:

We cheat Death from his rightful victory.
No one can defeat us we are glad to plunge feet first into Hell,
in the knowledge that we will rise.

We cheat Death from his rightful victory.
feet first into Hell,
in the knowledge that we will rise.

Andrew W.K.--Ready To Die

This is your time to pay
This is your judgment day
We made a sacrifice and now we get to take your life
We shoot without a gun
We'll take on anyone
It's really nothing new
It's just a thing we like to do!

You better get ready to die! (Get ready to die!)
You better get ready to kill! (Get ready to kill!)
You better get ready to run 'cause here we come
Whoa-ohh
You better get ready to die (Get ready to die!)

Your life is over now
Your life is running out
When your time is at an end, then it's time to kill again
We cut without a knife
We live in black and white
You're just a parasite
Now close your eyes and say goodnight!

You better get ready to die! (Get ready to die!)
You better get ready to kill! (Get ready to kill!)
You better get ready to run 'cause here we come
Whoa-ohh
You better get ready to die (Get ready to die!)

You better get ready to die (Get ready to die!)
Get ready to die (GET READY TO DIE!)
You better get ready to die (Get ready to die!)
Get ready to die (GET READY TO DIE!)
You better get ready to die (Get ready to die!)
Get ready to die

Been a long time comin'

After having a lengthy conversation tonight with the woman I love, I had to listen to this song. It kinda matches what's running through my head right now. :blink:"Right Here" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4_bl8uTonQ)

I know I've been mistaken,
but just give me a break
and see the changes that I've made
I've got some imperfections,
but how can you collect them all
and throw them in my face?

But you always find a way
to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say
to keep me right here waiting
And if you chose to walk away,
I'd still be right here waiting,
searching for the things to say
to keep you right here waiting

I hope you're not intending
to be so condescending,
it's as much as I can take
And you're so independent
You just refuse to bend,
so I keep bending 'til I break

But you always find a way
to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say
to keep me right here waiting
And if you chose to walk away,
I'd still be right here waiting,
searching for the things to say
to keep you right here waiting

I've made a commitment
I'm willing to bleed for you
I needed fulfillment
I found what I need in you

Why can't you just forgive me?
I don't want to relive all the mistakes
I've made along the way

But I always find a way
to keep you right here waiting
I always find the words to say
to keep you right here waiting

But you always find a way
to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say
to keep me right here waiting
And if I chose to walk away,
would you be right here waiting,
searching for the things to say
to keep me right here waiting?

Here's one of my favorite songs from the Bloodhound Gang, a song that sums up how I've been feeling for pretty much my entire adult life:"Magna Cum Nada" by The Bloodhound Gang (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWkfCqqikSM)

Why try? I'm that guy
Holden Caulfield from "Catcher In The Rye"
Put away 'cause he wasn't all there
Like a jigsaw puzzle, you might compare
me to him, not a liver, but wurst
Been much better off as a still birth
Big let down unparalleled,
like the last episode of "Seinfeld"
Or Jack Lemmon in "Glengarry Glen Ross"
Pepsi Challenge, took it, lost
Just fizzed out with my wires crossed
Buttons pushed, but never went off
Like Martha I will self-destruct
The name's Dunnstock, it's not Dumptruck
Just cursed as fuck with no such luck
My future plans include not much

Never gonna be, never gonna be, never gonna, never gonna be
nothin' more than me
Never gonna be, never gonna be, never gonna, never gonna be
nothin' more than me
Never gonna be, never gonna be, never gonna, never gonna be
nothin' more than me
Always gonna be, always gonna be, always gonna, always gonna be
most likely to suck

Wanna be a Ghostbuster,
first black President, owner of "Hustler"
Got shot down like Larry Flynt
Felt like shit, like a bowel movement
Have you seen my will to live?
Because I seem to have lost it
Love life? No, but Mom thinks I'm handsome
Couldn't get off if I held a pimp for ransom
I feel like Jimmy Stewart, no one sees my Harvey
Toxic Shock Syndrome gets more girls than me
Like Pee Wee Herman spermin' I can
see the future in the palm of my hand
Psychic Friends Network loser,
large phone bill in my very near future
Dealt nothing and bluffing hard
Playing poker with a joker and some Uno cards

Never gonna be, never gonna be, never gonna, never gonna be
nothin' more than me
Never gonna be, never gonna be, never gonna, never gonna be
nothin' more than me
Never gonna be, never gonna be, never gonna, never gonna be
nothin' more than me
Always gonna be, always gonna be, always gonna, always gonna be
most likely to suck

Most likely to suck
Most likely to suck
Most likely to suck
Most likely to suck
Most likely to suck:blink:

"Mistakes" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r58KPj9FWcI)No, I don't feel a thing
Life's going by me
But still I say…
Oh God, I'm making the same mistakes!

Low? I'm on empty
Try to erase all the bad times
Free? I don't seem to be
My soul remains, tied to your life

Every breath you breathe deep,
I feel you circulating through me, yeah
Oh, I'll never forgive myself again
I'm so sick and tired of making the same mistakes!
Oh, same mistakes
Yeah!

Oh, oh, God help me,
God help me,
God help me"Drowning in It" by Ünloco (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7I1NApm2olE)Why are we here? I always seem to ask myself
Question averted by the thought of someone else
And I am hopelessly done with the things that I have tried to do
Should I give up and let the weight just fall on me?
Day by day, I struggle endlessly
There's nothing right,
there's nothing good about this
There's nothing right,
there's nothing great about this life
And I will never know
how it's supposed to be

I keep fighting with the things inside my head
I used to feel so much better than this
I should be laughing, but instead I'm just a mess
It's not right, it's not right to feel this way
I keep fighting with the things inside my head
I don't know how much I could take of this
And now I feel I'm so drowning in it
It's not right, it's not right to feel this way

So you're gone, what are we supposed to do?
I told myself not to care, through and through
And all this time seems so wasted,
when in the end, it was all for nothing
There's nothing right,
'cause I am in a fake fantasy
There's nothing right,
'cause I am in a fake misery
There's nothing right,
there's nothing good about this
There's nothing right,
there's nothing great about this life
And you will always be
another fake part of me!

I keep fighting with the things inside my head
I used to feel so much better than this
I should be laughing, but instead I'm just a mess
It's not right, it's not right to feel this way
I keep fighting with the things inside my head
I don't know how much I could take of this
And now I feel I'm so drowning in it
It's not right, it's not right to feel this way

Why do I always feel this way?
And why do I always feel this way?
And why do I always feel this way?
And why do,
and why do,
and why do,
and why do…

I keep fighting with the things inside my head
I used to feel so much better than this
I should be laughing, but instead I'm just a mess
It's not right, it's not right to feel this way
I keep fighting with the things inside my head
I don't know how much I could take of this
And now I feel I'm so drowning in it
It's not right, it's not right to feel this way

I keep fighting, but drowning in it
And I keep fighting, but drowning in it
And I keep fighting, but drowning in it
And I keep, and I keep drowning in it:blink:

"Make Me Believe" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plcIgTFIWf0)Throw away my dreams
This fight for my life isn't getting behind me
And I've been told to scream
Where no one can hear me,
it doesn't mean nothing

So make me believe!
Just take me away from this hell I've created
And I'm afraid
I'm breaking my own vows,
knowing I'll go down in flames

I know this can't be right
There's got to be something more that I can live for
And I can only hide
inside of this sickness for so long again!

So make me believe
Just take me away from this hell I've created
And I'm afraid
I'm breaking my own vows,
knowing I'll go down
Make me believe
Just take me away from temptation that's calling me
And I'm afraid
I'm breaking my own vows,
knowing I'll go down in flames

Running in circles,
confusion is calling my name
Hiding inside of this poisoning madness again
I'm tired, I'm broken,
I'm walking along with the dead
Will I ever feel like I once did?

So make me...

Make me believe
Just take me away from this hell I've created
And I'm afraid
I'm breaking my own vows,
knowing I'll go down

Make me believe
Make me believe
Make me believe
I'm breaking my own vows,
knowing I'll go down in flames

Wait another minute,

I'm alive and still kicking
What you see, I can't see and maybe
you'll think before you speak

I'm alive for you
I'm awake because of you
I'm alive, told you
I'm awake, swallowing you

Take another second,
turn your back on me
and make believe that you're always happy
It's safe to say you're never alive
A big part of you has died and by the way,
I hope you're satisfied

I'm alive for you
I'm awake because of you
I'm alive, told you
I'm awake, swallowing you

I'm alive for you
I'm awake because of you
I'm alive, told you
I'm awake

(Go)

Tearing it back, unveiling me
Taking a step back so I can breathe
Hear the silence about to break
Fear resistance when I'm awake

Tearing it back, unveiling me
Taking a step back so I can breathe
Hear the silence about to break
Fear resistance when I'm awake
Ooh yeah!

Yeah!

Ah yeah

I'm alive for you
I'm awake because of you
I'm alive, told you

"Trippin'" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7K1ohADUpA)Living a different way,
you can't expect me to be the same
Separating our lives
and wondering why
Face down, I walk away
Every time I think I do the right thing,
you turn your back on me!

Trippin' into a world
that never seems too far away
Too much time,
too many wasted days

How can you be this way?
Now I'm alone and cold today
I'm walking Dead Man's Drive,
reaching out for my life
I've been known to fuck up everything!
In this skin there's a broken man!

Trippin' into a world
that never seems too far away
Too much time,
too many wasted days
Just another vision,
Just another vision in my world!

In my world
In my world

Trippin' into a world
that never seems too far away
Too much time,
too many wasted days
Just another vision,
Just another vision in my world!

In my world
In my world

Fool For Your Loving - Whitesnake

I was born under a bad sign,
Left out in the cold
I'm a lonely man who knows
Just what it means to lose control

But, I took all the heartache
And turned it to shame,
Now I'm moving, moving on,
And I ain't taking the blame

Don't come running to me,
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'm tired of hiding my feelings,
You left me lonely too long
I gave my heart, and you tore it apart,
Oh, baby, you done me wrong

Don't come running to me,
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'll be a fool for your loving no more, no more, no more

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more

Fool for your loving no more...


Steven - Alice Cooper

Years Ago:

Here I go again
Up and down alone
All my friends went home
Years ago
(mmmm mmmm)

All my toys are broken
And so am I inside mum
The carnival has closed
Years ago
(whistle)

(Boy) I'm a little boy
(Man) No, I'm a great big man
(Boy) No, let's be little boys
(Spoken) A little while longer
Maybe an hour
(Man) No, Steven we have to go back now
(Both) Isn't that our mum calling?
(Steven, Steven, Steven it's time to come home)

Steven:

I don't want to see you go
I don't even want to be there
I will cover up my eyes
And pray it goes away

You've only lived a minute of your life
I must be dreaming, please stop screaming

I don't like to hear you cry
You just don't know how deep that cuts me
So I will cover up my eyes
And it will go away

You've only lived a minute of your life
I must be dreaming, please stop screaming

STEVEN!
STEVEN!
I hear my name!
STEVEN!
Is someone calling me? I hear my name!
STEVEN!
That icy breath that whispers screams of pain!

I don't want to feel you die
But if that's the way that God has planned you
I'll put pennies on your eyes
And it will go away
See?

You've only lived a minute of your life
I must be dreaming

Steven....
Is someone calling me? No....
Steven....
I think I hear a voice - it's outside the door!
STEVEN!
I hear my name!
STEVEN!
Is someone calling me? I hear my name!
STEVEN!
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
STEVEN!
WHAT DO YOU WANT? WHAT-DO-YOU-WANT? WHAT DO YOU WANT?

STEVEN!
STEVEN!
STEVEN!
I hear my name....

The Awakening:

I wake up in the basement
I'm so hungry and tired
I must be here sleep walking
Mustn't I?

Getting up from my easy chair
Looking for my wife
Following a trail of crimson spots
That lead into the night

Suddenly I realize
I see it all through real eyes
These crimson spots are
Dripping from my hand
Ahh ooooohhhhhhhhh...

It makes me feel like a man.

Normally, I'd dedicate this song to all the sucky customers I've dealt with over the years, or to all the overly aggressive drivers in the D.C. area. But tonight, this song goes out to the asshole COP that pulled me over!!! :pissed:"I Hope You Die" by The Bloodhound Gang (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpAtG744-hE)

You must die! I alone am best!

I hope you flip some guy the bird,
he cuts you off and you're forced to swerve
in front of a Beatles' tour bus,
a Bookmobile and a Mack truck
hauling hazardous biological waste,
the light turns red, you have no brakes,
and "Hard Copy" gets it all on tape,
so you can see the look on your face

Die die die die die die, die
Die die die die die die, die

I hope your Pinto begins to spin,
takes out a disabled Vietnam Veteran,
mows down a Nobel Peace Prize Winner,
and maybe some orphans having Christmas dinner
Perhaps even the British Royal Family,
and the Rabbi that's clutching the bottle-fed puppy
And we can't forget the newlyweds,
and those Jerry's Kids are as good as dead

I hope this helps to emphasize
I hope this helps to clarify
I hope you die

I hope your cellmate thinks he's God,
but C.N.N. refer to him as "Bowling Ball Bag Bob"
Serving time again for abuse of a corpse,
only this time the victim's a Clydesdale horse
While he masturbates to photos of livestock,
he does the "Silence of the Lambs" dance to Christian Rock,
eats feces and quotes from "Deliverance",
and fights with his imaginary playmate Vince

Die die die die die die, die
Die die die die die die, die

I hope he grins like Jack Nicholson
and forces you to play a game called "Balls On Chin"
And whatever happens next is all a blur,
but you remember "fist" can be a verb
And when you finally regain consciousness,
you're bound and gagged in a wedding dress
And the prison guard looks the other way,
'cause he's the guy you flipped the bird the other day

I hope this helps to emphasize
I hope this helps to clarify
I hope you die

I hope you die!:devil:

And now for 2 of my favorite songs from Nightwish's album Once (the final album they recorded with their original lead singer Tarja Turunen.)"Nemo" by Nightwish (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80kOBeMEm2I)

This is me, for forever,
one of the lost ones
The one without a name,
without an honest heart as compass

This is me, for forever,
one without a name
These lines the last endeavor
to find the missing lifeline

Oh how I wish
for soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart,
lost in the dark
For hope, I'd give my everything

My flower, withered between
the pages two and three
The once and forever bloom,
gone with my sins

Walk the dark path,
sleep with angels,
call the past for help
Touch me with your love,
and reveal to me my true name

Oh how I wish
for soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart,
lost in the dark
For hope, I'd give my everything

Oh how I wish
for soothing rain
Oh how I wish to dream again
Once and for all,
and all for once,
Nemo my name forever more

Nemo sailing home
Nemo letting go

Oh how I wish
for soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart,
lost in the dark
For hope, I'd give my everything

Oh how I wish
for soothing rain
Oh how I wish to dream again
Once and for all,
and all for once,
Nemo my name forever more
Name forever moreSomething that will help immensely in understanding that song is this bit of knowledge that many people here in the USA won't be aware of: Nemo is Latin for "no one". :cool:"Planet Hell" by Nightwish (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR-16SX4Vv4)

Denying the lying,
a million children fighting
for lives in strife,
for hope beyond the horizon

A dead world,
a dark path
Not even crossroads to choose from
All the blood red carpets before me
Behold this fair creation of God!

My only wish, to leave behind
all the days of the Earth
An everyday Hell of my kingdom come

The first rock thrown again
Welcome to Hell, little Saint!
Mother Gaia in slaughter
Welcome to paradise, soldier!

My first cry, never ending
All life is to fear for life
You fool, you wanderer
You challenged the gods and lost

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman
Save yourself and let them suffer
In hope, in love
This world ain't ready for the Ark

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman
Save yourself and let them suffer
In hope, in love
Mankind works in mysterious ways

Welcome down to my planet,
Hell!

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman
Save yourself and let them suffer
In hope, in love
This world ain't ready for the Ark

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman
Save yourself and let them suffer
In hope, in love
Mankind works in mysterious ways:super:

Here's another song by my favorite modern metal band. This one is spot-on for bad experiences my friends and I have had with women in our pasts..."Deceiver" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPsYKDKCo6w)

You've been caught in a lie!

You can't deny it!

So let the war begin
You're far from innocent
Hell, I just don't know where it will end
You are the one to blame
You've made a habit of fucking up my life!
(Ow!)

Another fallacy
is laid in front of me
Now I just don't know what to believe
Another animal,
sent to devour whatever's left inside
(I know now!)

It's all been a lie
and I'll never come to know why
Awoke to discover
you leaving me now
It's all been a lie
I don't ever want to know why
You've mastered the art of
deceiving me now

A mortal enemy
has been revealed to me
How come I wasn't able to see?
Another vampire,
getting a fix from sucking up my life
(Ow!)

An evil entity
had taken hold of me,
ripped out my heart and started to feed
I still remember when
I thought that all you were eating
was my pride
(I know now!)

It's all been a lie
and I'll never come to know why
Awoke to discover
you leaving me now
It's all been a lie
I don't ever want to know why
You've mastered the art of
deceiving me now

This idiot won't let me go
Slowly penetrating the mind
I tell you now, my little puppet,
you'll suffer me
You don't want to let me go
'til I've taken over your life
I'll ensure you survive
Little puppet don't die
Let me, let me die
Little puppet don't die
Let me, let me die
Little toy don't die

It's all been a lie
and I'll never come to know why
Awoke to discover
you leaving me now
It's all been a lie
I don't ever want to know why
You've mastered the art of
deceiving me now

It's all been a lie
and I'll never come to know why
Awoke to discover
you leaving me now
It's all been a lie
I don't ever want to know why
You've mastered the art of
deceiving me now!

(Warning: this song is about man who was abused by a priest when he was a child and confronting him as an adult)

"I'm Not Jesus" by Apocalyptica with Corey Taylor

Dirty little secret
Dirty little lies
Say your prayers and comb your hair
Save your soul tonight

Drift among the faithful
Bury your desires
Aberrations fill your head
You need a place to hide
And I am

Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Do you remember me?

[Chorus:]
When your world's come crashing down
I want to be there.
Your god is looking down on me!
I'm not Jesus,
Jesus wasn't there!

You could confess it all away,
But it's only shit to me
Your god ain't looking down on me!
I'm not Jesus,
I will not forgive!

No I won't! [2x]

I've thought you were a good man,
I've thought you talked to god.
Your hippocratic messiah and child abusive turned satanic.

Do you remember me?
Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Do you remember?
Do you remember?

[Chorus:]
When your own world comes undone,
Let me be the one to say:
I'm not Jesus,
You can't run away!

And the innocence you spoil
Find a way to live
Your god is looking down on me!
I'm not Jesus
I will not forgive!

I won't forgive.
I won't be whatever you want to.
[2x]

Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Not the same as I used to be!
Oh, do you remember me?

No!

[Chorus:]
When your world's come crashing down,
I want to be there
Your god is looking down on me
I'm not Jesus
Jesus wasn't there!

You could confess it all away,
But it's only shit to me!
Your god is looking down on me!
I'm not Jesus,
I will not,
I'm not Jesus,
I will not forgive!

Oh, I will not forgive, yeah yeah!
No, I will not forgive!


"SOS (Anything But Love)" by Apocalyptica with Christina Scabbia

Bound to your side and trapped in silence
Just a possession
Is the sex or only violence
That feeds your obsession

You send me to a broken state
Where I can take the pain
Just long enough
That I am numb
That I just disappear

So go on and fight me
Go on and scare me to death
Tell me I asked for it
Tell me I'll never forget
You could give me anything but love
Anything but love

Does it feel good tonight
Hurt me with nothing
Some sort of sick satisfaction
You Get from mind fucking

Oh stripped down to my naked core
The darkest corners of my mind are yours
That's where you live
That's where you breathe

So go on and fight me
Go on and scare me to death
Dare me to leave you
Tell me I'd never forget
You could give me anything but love
Anything but love

Without any faith
Without any light
Condemn me to live
Condemn me to lie
Inside I am dead

So go on and fight me
Go on and scare me to death
I'll be the victim
You'll be the voice in my head
You could give me anything but love
Anything but love
Anything but love
Anything but love
Anything but love
Anything but love

Roughly 20 years ago, I became a fan of Metallica, when I discovered their album that was their current release at the time, the self-titled Metallica, which most fans prefer to call "The Black Album".

This was one of the songs that made me a big fan of their music, a song that spoke to me then just as much as it still speaks to me today..."Holier Than Thou" by Metallica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAImHAQvYEY)

No more!
The crap rolls out your mouth again
Haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
Little whispers circle around your head
Why don't you worry about yourself instead?!

Who are you? Where ya been? Where ya from?
Gossip burning on the tip of your tongue
You lie so much, you believe yourself
Judge not, lest ye be judged yourself!

Holier than thou
You are
Holier than thou
You are
You know not!

Before you judge me, take a look at you
Can't you find something better to do?
Point the finger, slow to understand
Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand!

It's not who you are, it's who you know
Others lives are the basis of your own
Burn your bridges and build them back with wealth!
Judge not, lest ye be judged yourself!

Holier than thou
You are
Holier than thou
You are
You know not

Yeah, who the hell are you?!

Hey yo!

Holier than thou
You are
Holier than thou
You are
You know not

Not!Good ol' James Hetfield, ranting and raving about how much he hates hypocrites... a hatred I share! :super:

"The God That Failed" by Metallica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Wj4RuKANrk)Pride you took,
pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel
Not the word,
not the love
Not what you thought from above

It feeds,
it grows,
it clouds all that you will know
Deceit,
deceive
Decide just what you believe

I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
Follow the god that failed

Find your peace,
find your say
Find the smooth road on your way
Trust you gave,
a child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

It feeds,
it grows,
it clouds all that you will know
Deceit,
deceive
Decide just what you believe

I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
Follow the god that failed

I see faith in your eyes
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
Follow the god that failed

Pride you took,
pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel
Trust you gave,
a child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

I see faith in your eyes
Never your hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
Follow the god that failed
Follow the god that failed!

Broken is the promise
Betrayal, betrayal:super:

One of my favorite songs from Godsmack's newest album, The Oracle. This is one I can really relate to..."Good Day to Die" by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQde4WfdV-U)

Who really knows what rights all the wrongs anyway?
Who really cares what people do or say?
And no matter where this life takes me,
I'll never let it compromise
Too much luck to bet it on do or die

'Cause I've seen everything that I could see
And now I can say goodbye today
With all I know,
it's time I said goodbye
Today is a good day to die

Lived by the rules that you gave me and fell apart!
All the wrong turns down a dead end street so far
I stretch my wings and breathe in a different day
Alone and broken's the price I pay,
but that's okay

I've seen everything that I could see
And now I can say goodbye today
With all I know,
it's time I said goodbye
Today is a good day to die

Never fought out alive
Taken all I can take
It's time to say goodbye
It's a good day to die!

'Cause I've seen everything that I could see
And now I can say goodbye today
With all I know,
it's time I said goodbye
Today is a good day to die!

'Cause I've seen everything
And I know all I know
It's time I say goodbye today
With all I know,
it's time I said goodbye
Today is a good day to die!

Brand-new Disturbed, and a very timely song, at that. The lyrics mirror EXACTLY what I'm feeling right now."Crucified" by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvSeFojriEo)

When others left before,
I could bear to turn away
Now that it's come to this,
is there nothing left to say?
I've never known before
such exquisite suffering
As I watched you walk away,
I gave in to panicking

I can't believe that
this is really happening
Have I really lost again?
Desperation drives me insane

I will focus all the pain
right into your heart…

'Til it makes you blind,
'til the faces of your former world
have fallen from your sight
'Til you're mine,
until the voice of doubt
no longer dominates your mind,
I'm crucified

Cold and unwhole again,
crying out and questioning
Will I ever love again?
What's the point of anything?
It takes a toll again,
this is where the fun begins
Visions haunt me through the night,
now I'm dying for your sins

I can't believe that,
if you looked me in the face,
you could say there's nothing left
How the silence drives me insane

I will focus all my pain
right into your heart…

'Til it makes you blind,
'til the faces of your former world
have fallen from your sight
'Til you're mine,
until the voice of doubt
no longer dominates your mind,
I'm crucified

I cannot feel anything,
anger, I've been harboring
You've nailed me to the cross,
upon it I will remain
I can't feel anything,
rage inside is festering
You've nailed me to the cross,
upon it I will remain!

I will focus all my pain
right into your heart…

'Til it makes you blind,
'til the faces of your former world
have fallen from your sight
'Til you're mine,
until the voice of doubt
no longer dominates your mind,
I'm crucified

'Til it makes you blind,
'til the faces of your former world
have fallen from your sight
(I’m crucified)
'Til you're mine,
until the voice of doubt
no longer dominates your mind,
I'm crucifiedhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v148/JackTChance/Smilies/CrucifiedSmilie.gif

This song has been something of a personal theme song for me ever since it came out... speaks a lot to my experiences in this life..."Excess Baggage" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0d2KivjanjQ)

Well I know the words,
but I can't really speak them
to you
And I hide all the pain
that I've gained with my wisdom
from you
And I'm eaten alive
by what I hold inside
All the things that I live with,
I can't easily hide

And I'm left here with nothing,
nothing to live for,
but you

It's not easy to hide
all this damage inside
And I'll carry it with me
until I'm not alive

When you look at my face,
does it seem just as ugly
to you?
I can't seem to erase
all the scars I have lived with
from you
I'm so sick of this place
and this taste in my mouth
'Cause of you I can't figure
what I'm all about

And I'm left here with nothing,
nothing to live for,
but you

It's not easy to hide
all this damage inside
But I'll carry it with me
'til I'm not alive

Mikey got with Sharon, Sharon got Cherise
As she was sharin' Sharon's outlook on the topic of disease
Mikey had a facial scar and Bobby was a racist
They were all in love with dying, they were doing it in Texas
Tommy played piano like a kid out in the rain
And then he lost his leg in Dallas, he was dancing with a train

They were all in love with dying
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

I don't mind the sun sometimes, the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how to look through other people's eyes

Some will die in hot pursuit in fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche, coming down the mountain

I don't mind the sun sometimes, the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes

Another Mikey took a knife while arguing in traffic
Flipper died a natural death he caught a nasty virus
Then there was the ever present football-player rapist
They were all in love with dying, they were doing it in Texas
Paulie caught a bullet but it only hit his leg
While it should've been a better shot, got him in the head

They were all in love with dying
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

I don't mind the sun sometimes, the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes

Man, this thread is perfect for me. I make entire PLAYLISTS of dark, depressing-as-hell songs. :p

This one creeps me out. You could take it as not dark, I suppose, but I don't see how. It doesn't help that one of my first introductions to it involved this video: HP Fan Video involving Harry, Hermione, and Ron (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kIkTEbaCho) It sounds very much like he's stalking her and wants to hurt her. :eek:

She Wants Revenge: "Tear You Apart"

Got a big plan, his mind's set, maybe it's right
At the right place and right time, maybe tonight
In a whisper or handshake sending a sign
Wanna make out and kiss hard, wait never mind

Late night, in passing, mention it flip to her
Best friend, it's no thing, maybe it slipped
but the slip turns to terror and a crush to like
when she walked in he froze up, leave it to fright

It's cute in a way, till you cannot speak
And you leave to have a cigarette, knees get weak
escape was just a nod and a casual wave
Obsess about it, heavy for the next two days

It's only just a crush, it'll go away
It's just like all the others it'll go away
Or maybe this is danger and you just don't know
You pray it all away but it continues to grow

I want to hold you close
Skin pressed against me tight
Lie still, and close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right

I want to hold you close
Soft breath, beating heart
As I whisper in your ear
I want to fucking tear you apart

Then he walked up and told her, thinking maybe it'd pass

And they talked and looked away a lot, doing the dance
Her hand brushed up against his, she left it there
Told him how she felt and then they locked in a stare

They took a step back, thought about it, what should they do
Cause theres always repercussions when you're dating in school
But their lips met, and reservations started to pass
Whether this was just an evening or a thing that would last

Either way he wanted her and this was bad
Wanted to do things to her it was making him crazy
Now a little crush turned into a like
And now he wants to grab her by the hair and tell her

I want to hold you close
Skin pressed against me tight
Lie still, and close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right

I want to hold you close
Soft breath, beating heart
As I whisper in your ear
I wanna fucking tear you apart
[3x]




And another one. WARNING: This describes child sexual abuse. :(


Bright Eyes: "Amy in the White Coat"

You take your clothes off
Right after school
The tea is on, the flame is blue.
And you hope it won't take all afternoon.
The TV's waiting to talk to you.
It's your naked body on white velour,
But there's no feeling
Just weight on you.
But you get nauseous now
As he speaks to you
Such proper language
For acts so cruel
He says "We all follow the rules
We can't very well go and break them now can we?
For you, for you, for you..
Your older sisters, I had them too.
But you're my favorite you know it's true.
You look like your mother
In that thin disguise
your parting mouth, your shining eyes.
And the way that you hate me
And the length of your hair
It's the reason I made you
It's the bond that we share.
You see we're all trying to endure
You could easily go and make your own life somewhere
Couldn't you? Couldn't you? Couldn't you, couldn't you, couldn't you, couldn't you, couldn't you?"

With the sun you rise
But you keep your eyes shut
The alarm clock lies
Get to school on time
where you're a bag of warm fluid
You're the corpse in the class
You walk so near to your locker
You lay so low in the grass
Did you get that coat from the principal?
Did you get that bruise on the bus?
You should wash your hair more
You should look more like us.
But I saw you walking once
Under powder blue skies
You looked cold still, your collar was high.
And I tried to talk to you
But you walked right by
I don't know which I said then,
"Hello" or "Goodbye"
see we're all trying to be pure
But it isn't a very easy thing, now is it,
to do? To do, To do, To do, To do, To do
Isn't it, Isn't it, Isn't it, Isn't it,
Isn't it, Isn't it, Isn't it, Isn't it?

Here's some more lyrics from Baltimore's SR-71... lyrics about life and love that speak of a lot of experiences I've had in the past..."Mosquito" by SR-71 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSRLGlpxJho)

You like when we go fast,
so my foot's on the brake
Used to be my girl,
but now you're just my worst mistake
But you don't see it, not a subtle change
Makes me laugh how you turned into a cliché

When every time you told me
that we'd never say goodbye... was a lie
Yeah, you knew what to expect from me
Just like a hit of exctasy
you made me high!

You think I still want you
after all you put me through
You think I can't walk away
and find someone better for me
Just take your overactive ego,
shrink it down like a mosquito
Baby lovin' you was such a chore,
'til I got bored
Now I don't think about you anymore
Anymore

From the first time I saw you naked,
I could see the future,
I knew that my world was shaken
Lost my innocence, then I lost my mind
Thank god now I see,
'cause with you I must have been blind 'cause

Every time you told me
that we'd never say goodbye... was a lie
Yeah, just like a common criminal,
you gave me just the minimal
to keep me hanging on inside!

You think I still want you
after all you put me through
You think I can't walk away
and find someone better for me
Just take your overactive ego,
shrink it down like a mosquito
Baby lovin' you was such a chore,
'til I got bored
Now I don't think about you anymore

Now that I can breathe,
I'm done with therapy
It's your turn to burn
Covered up in lies
and still so full of pride
I hope you choke,
'cause its the sex I'll miss the most!

You think I still want you
after all you put me through
You think I can't walk away
and find someone better for me
'Cause you'll come crawling back one day

You think I still want you (still want you)
after all you put me through (all you put me through)
You think I can't walk away (walk away)
and find someone better for me (someone better for me)
You think I still want you (still want you)
after all you put me through (all you put me through)
You think I can't walk away (walk away)
and find someone better for me (someone better for me)
Just take your overactive ego,
shrink it down like a mosquito
Baby lovin' you was such a chore,
'til I got bored
Now I don't think about you anymore"Here We Go Again" by SR-71 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2swoAdsASk)

I met her just last Wednesday
By Friday she was mine
Saturday she spent the night
and everything was fine
But Sunday she was on my nerves,
I wanna be alone
Tuesday's here, it's been a week
Why won't she go home?

In the bedroom she's fakin'
All the good ones are taken
Do I have "freak" stamped across my forehead?
I just want a normal girlfriend,
but here we go again
Here we go again

The start of week two,
she cooks me dinner at her pad
But I can't believe its just so
I can meet her mom and dad
So I sat her down and told her
I just wanna be friends
Today when I got home,
that crazy bitch was moving in
(Singin' here we go again)

In the bedroom she's fakin'
All the good ones are taken
Do I have "freak" stamped across my forehead?
I just want a normal girlfriend,
but here we go again

Dear God I'm so ashamed
I'll do anything to get laid
Dear God I'm so ashamed
I'm so ashamed

In the bedroom she's fakin' (she's fakin')
All the good ones are taken (are taken)
Do I have "freak" stamped across my forehead?
I just want a normal girlfriend,
but here we go again
(Dear God I'm so ashamed)
Here we go again
(I'll do anything to get laid)
Here we go again
(Dear God I'm so ashamed)
I just want a normal girlfriend,
but here we go again"All American" by SR-71 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWDMDo-e9Is)

I never got high first time that I tried,
just like everyone
I know the cigarettes were bold
for a little four foot nothing ten year-old
On hot summer days,
we went off to the mall,
sent security climbin' up the walls
Just like everyone,
we thought we'd be forever young

I am not so original,
never to be cynical
A little unstable,
clinically labeled
Fucked-up All-American
I am totally miserable,
ever to be pigeon-holed
Completely obsessive,
manic depressive
Fucked-up All-American

We lived out our lives like we would never die,
just like everyone
But before Keith went to bed,
he put a double barreled shotgun to his head

I am not so original,
never to be cynical
A little unstable,
clinically labeled
Fucked-up All-American
I am totally miserable,
ever to be pigeon-holed
Completely obsessive,
manic depressive
Fucked-up All-American

Smashing bottles and cans
for reasons I don't understand
When I look at the past,
it's like staring at pieces of broken glass
Broken glass

I am not so original,
completely fucking miserable (completely fucking miserable)
A little unstable (a little unstable)
A little unstable!

I am, I am (totally miserable, ever to be pigeon-holed)
a little unstable,
clinically labeled
Fucked-up All-American (All-American)
I am, I am (totally miserable, ever to be pigeon-holed)
Completely obsessive,
manic depressive
Fucked-up All-American
Fucked-up All-American
Hey
Fucked-up All-American (All-American)
HeyGreat band that will be sorely missed, shame Mitch Allan moved on to other things. :(

I got some REALLY dark lyrics...you has been warned! :p

This one is just creepy for a lot of reasons...and yet some of the lyrics really...resonate, I guess would be the best word. But still. CREEPY!

Avenged Sevenfold: "Nightmare"

NIGHTMARE!
Now your nightmare comes to life.

Dragged you down below
Down to the devils show
To be his guest forever
Peace of mind is less than never

Hate to twist your mind
But God ain't on your side
An old acquaintance severed
Burn the world your last endeavor

Flesh is burning
You can smell it in the air
Cause men like you have such an easy soul to steal (steal)

So stand in line while banging numbers in your head
You're now a slave until the end of time

Nothing stops the madness turning, haunting, yearning pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here
Yeah
Oooooooh
It's your fucking nightmare
While your nightmare comes to life

Can't wake up in sweat
Cause it ain't over yet
Still dancing with your demons
Victim of your own creation

Beyond the will to fight
Where all that's wrong is right
Where hate don't need a reason
Loathing self-assassination

You've been lied to
Just to rape you of your sight
And now they have the nerve to tell you how to feel (feel)

So sedated as they medicate your brain
And while you slowly go insane they tell ya
"Given with the best intentions, help you with your complications"

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here
Yeah
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate
Is looking so clear
Yeah
Oooooooh
It's your fucking nightmare
HA! HA! HA! HA!

(Break)

(Maniacal laughter)
Fight (Fight! ). not to fail (fail! )
Not to fall (fall! )
Or you'll end up like the others

Die (Die! ), die again (die! )
Drenched in sin (sin! )
With no respect for another
OH!

Down(Down! ), feel the fire(fire! )
Feel the hate(hate! )
Your pain is what we desire

Lost (Lost! ), hit the wall (wall! )
Watch you crawl (crawl! )
Such a replaceable liar

And I know you hear their voices
Calling from above
And I know they may seem real
These signals of love
But our life's made up of choices
Some without appeal
They took for granted your soul
And it's ours now to steal

As your nightmare comes to life

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here
Yeah
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate
Is looking so clear
Yeah
Oooooooh
It's your fucking nightmare





The band Sentenced, in general, was just a depressing-as-shit band. :( Be that as it may, I'm still sad that one member died and then the band broke up.

Here's a particularly disturbing one.

Sentenced: "The Luxury of a Grave" **MENTIONS SUICIDE**

On day zero my mother was expecting the worst
And out of my father´s ass I was born, feet first

"Oh, no."

The most horrendous piece of feces ever forced
To be disposed of is what I was created for

Oh, no...[I´m sorry that I was born!]...so wrong!

When death releases you from me
Just dump my foul remains on some near-by field
- I don´t deserve a grave
When you finally get rid of me
Just let my corpse decay...unburied
- I do NOT deserve the luxury of a grave

My worthlessness is something there is no doubt of:
- I am a waste of the filth I was made out of

How low...[I´m sorry I´m still alive]...can I go!?

When death releases you from me
Just dump my foul remains on some near-by field
- I don´t deserve a grave
When you finally get rid of me
Just let my corpse decay...unburied
- I do NOT deserve the luxury of...

Oh, no...a coffin would be way too nice
Oh, no...a see-through plastic bag will do just fine

When death releases you from me
Just dump my foul remains on some near-by field
- I don´t deserve a grave
When you finally get rid of me
Just let my corpse decay...unburied
- I do NOT deserve the luxury of a grave...


Aaaaaaaaaaand how about this one. This one seriously speaks to me in so many ways. I DO want my innocence back.

Emilie Autumn: "I Want My Innocence Back"

I want my innocence back
And if you can't give it to me
I will cut you down
And I will run you through
With the dagger you sharpened
On my body and soul
Before you slit me in two
And then devoured me whole

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
(I want my innocence back)

I want my innocence back
And if you can't pacify me
I will break your bones
You think I'm bluffing, just try me (just try me)
I will never forget the words you used to ensnare me
Till my dying day
You'll suffer for this, I swear (I swear)

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
(I want my innocence back)

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
(I want my innocence back)

And I demand
You put my heart back in my hand
And wipe it clean
From the mess you made of me
And I require
You make me free from this desire
And when you leave, I'd better be the innocent
I used to be

I want my innocence back!
(I want my innocence back)

I want my innocence back!
(I want my innocence back)

I want my innocence back!
(I want my innocence back)

I want my innocence back!

(I want my innocence back)
(I want my innocence back)
(I want my innocence back)

(I want my innocence back)
(I want my innocence back)
(I want my innocence back)

one of my favorite songs when I am very angry or just in a generally bad mood
Spit it out by slipknot

Did you ever gave a damn in the first place
Maybe it's time you had the tables turned
'Cause in the interest of all involved I got the problem solved
And the verdict is guilty

Man nearly killed me stepping where you fear to tread
Stop drop and roll, you were dead from the get go
Big motherfucker, stupid cocksucker
Are you scared of me now? Then you're dumber than I thought

Always is and never was
Foundation made of piss and vinegar
Step to me I'll smear ya, think I fear ya, bullshit
Just another dumb punk chomping at this tit

Is there any way to break through the noise
Was it something that I said that got you bent
Gotta be that way if you want it
Sanity literal profanity hit me

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out
Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

Maybe it's the way you spread a lotta rumor fodder
Keeping all your little spies and leaving when you realize
Step up, fairy I guess it's time to bury your ass with the chrome
Straight to the dome you heard me right, bitch, I didn't stutter

And if you know what's good
Just shut up and beg brother
Back stab, don't you know who you're dissing?
Side swipe you know, the ass that you're kissing

Biggidy biggidy bitch boy, halfway hauser
Can't hear shit, 'cause it keeps getting louder
C'mon, and get a face full of tactic
Lipping off hard, going home in a basket

You got no pull, no power, no nothing
Now you start shit, well ain't that something
Payoffs don't protect, and you can hide if you want
But I'll find you, comin' up behind you

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out
Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

'Bout time I set this record straight
All the needle nose punching is making me irate
Sick of my bitching falling on deaf ears
Where you gonna be in the next five years?

The crew and all the fools, and all the politics
Get your lips ready, gonna gag, gonna make you sick
You got dick when they passed out the good stuff
Are you sick of me? Good enough, had enough

Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies

Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out
Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

Spit, spit
Spit, spit
Spit it out

Tourniquet - Evanescence

I tried to kill the pain
but only brought more
so much more
I lay dying
and I'm pouring crimson regret and betrayal
I'm dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
am I too lost to be saved
am I too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me
I'm dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
am I too lost to be saved
am I too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

I want to die!!!

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will I be denied Christ
tourniquet
my suicide

I don't have many sad/dark songs in my playlist, but i do like me some Amy Lee... :D

Lithium - Evanescence

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.
Oh, but God, I want to let it go.

Come to bed, don't make me sleep alone.
Couldn't hide the emptiness, you let it show.
Never wanted it to be so cold.
Just didn't drink enough to say you love me.

I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.

Don't want to let it lay me down this time.
Drown my will to fly.
Here in the darkness I know myself.
Can't break free until I let it go.
Let me go.

Darling, I forgive you... After all,
Anything is better than to be alone.
And in the end I guess I had to fall.
Always find my place among the ashes.

I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, ...stay in love with you.
I'm gonna let it go.

Goo Goo Dolls, Ain't That Unusual

Could you talk to me
Honestly?
'Cause I never heard a word you said now
And I ain't just being mean
'Cause all we are is what we're told
And most of that's been lies
It's like a made for TV movie
And I just blew my line

Someday you never made it
and maybe it never will
Hey, you never made it
And ain't that unusual?

Now I feel unknown
And it's safe that way
Are you too bored to care or too dumb to be scared now?
What's that supposed to mean?

I'm burned out on some empty reasons
Another waste of time
There's somethin' that I wish I'd said
But I don't think it'd rhyme

Chorus

See I'd love to be you
Then at least then I'd see you
Sorry I put them words in your mouth
But you wouldn't talk to me
Hey!

Everything I want I haven't got
I'm sick of everything I know I'm not
Put my heavy coat on for a while
It's freezing in the corner of my mind

Chorus

Wanna know why music from the late 60s/early 70s is so much better than music from today? Because back then they did songs like this:

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air...

Laying here, looking at the ceiling,
Someone lays a sheet across my chest.
Something warm is flowing down my fingers
Pain is flowing all through my back.

I try to move my arm and there's no feeling
And when I look, I see there's nothing there.
The face beside me stopped bleeding
The girl I knew has such a distant stare.

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air.

Then I look straight at the attendant,
His face is pale as it can be.
He bends and whispers something softly,
He says there's no chance for me.

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air.

Life is flowing out my body,
Pain is flowing out with my blood.
The sheets are red and moist where I'm lying.
God in Heaven, teach me how to die.

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air.

(Maybe not as dark as some of the songs here, but I find it unsettling...)

Fear Of A Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeTvsGkQdJc)

Sunlight coming through the haze
No gaps in the blinds
To let it inside
The bed is unmade,
Some music still plays

TV, yeah it's always on
The flicker on the screen
A movie actress screams
I'm basking the shit flowing out of it

I'm stoned in the mall again
Terminally bored
Shuffling round the stores
And shoplifting is getting so last year's thing

X-Box is a god to me
A finger on the switch
My mother is a bitch
My father gave up ever trying to talk to me

Don't try engaging me
The vaguest of shrugs
The prescription drugs
You'll never find a person inside

My face is Mogadon
Curiosity has given up on me
I'm tuning out desires
The pills are on the rise

How can I be sure I'm here?
The pills that I've been taking confuse me
I need to know that someone sees that
There's nothing left, I simply am not here

I'm through with pornography
The acting is lame
The action is tame
Explicitly dull
Arousal annulled

Your mouth should be boarded up
Talking all day with nothing to say
Your shallow proclamations
All misinformation

My friend says he wants to die
He's in a band, they sound like Pearl Jam
Their clothes are all black
The music is crap

In school I don't concentrate
And sex is kinda fun, but just another one
Of all the empty ways of using up the day

How can I be sure I'm here?
The pills that I've been taking confuse me
I need to know that someone sees that
There's nothing left, I simply am not here

Bipolar disorder
Can't deal with this boredom
Bipolar disorder
Can't deal with this boredom

You don't try to be liked
You don't mind
You feel no sun
You steal a gun
To kill time

You're somewhere
You're nowhere
You don't care
You catch the breeze
You still the leaves
So now where?

And now for a very special dedication...

this one I'm sending out to ALL of my fellow motorists in the Washington, D.C. area... but especially to all the rubberneckers, and all the aggressive-driving, speed demon assholes that want to do 80 or more in a 55 zone... and also all the drivers from Virginia that insist on coming to the Maryland side of the Beltway to driver slower than everyone else and cause traffic jams! :mad:"I Hope You Die" by The Bloodhound Gang (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpAtG744-hE)

You must die! I alone am best!

I hope you flip some guy the bird,
he cuts you off and you're forced to swerve
in front of a Beatles' tour bus,
a Bookmobile and a Mack truck
hauling hazardous biological waste,
the light turns red, you have no brakes,
and "Hard Copy" gets it all on tape,
so you can see the look on your face

Die die die die die die, die
Die die die die die die, die

I hope your Pinto begins to spin,
takes out a disabled Vietnam Veteran,
mows down a Nobel Peace Prize Winner,
and maybe some orphans having Christmas dinner
Perhaps even the British Royal Family,
and the Rabbi that's clutching the bottle-fed puppy
And we can't forget the newlyweds,
and those Jerry's Kids are as good as dead

I hope this helps to emphasize
I hope this helps to clarify
I hope you die

I hope your cellmate thinks he's God,
but C.N.N. refer to him as "Bowling Ball Bag Bob"
Serving time again for abuse of a corpse,
only this time the victim's a Clydesdale horse
While he masturbates to photos of livestock,
he does the "Silence of the Lambs" dance to Christian Rock,
eats feces and quotes from "Deliverance",
and fights with his imaginary playmate Vince

Die die die die die die, die
Die die die die die die, die

I hope he grins like Jack Nicholson
and forces you to play a game called "Balls On Chin"
And whatever happens next is all a blur,
but you remember "fist" can be a verb
And when you finally regain consciousness,
you're bound and gagged in a wedding dress
And the prison guard looks the other way,
'cause he's the guy you flipped the bird the other day

I hope this helps to emphasize
I hope this helps to clarify
I hope you die

I hope you die!:devil:

Ultimate road rage song right there, my friends! ;)

^I love that song. :p


This one. Just...resonates, I suppose!

Brooke Fraser: "Scarlet"

Middle of nowhere
Finally you can breathe
Nobody knows your name
It's easier

Shut your eyes tightly
Clench your fists 'til they almost bleed
Cautiously, lightly
Gently expose what's underneath

And all you feel now
Is the scarlet in the day
Even if it's real
You can't stay...

[Chorus]
So there you go
You're gone for good
There you go
You're gone for good

Your mind is swollen
From months of thought without release
They've taken their toll on you
And this very moment
Of timid and fragile honesty
Is precious and rare and fleeting

And all you feel now
Is the scarlet in the day
And even if it's real
You can't stay...

[Chorus x2]

Ooo. Me likey metal. Particularly death metal. ^_^

Our Requiem by Winds Of Plague

My friends.
My family.
I ask of you one final time to gather before me.
Tonight we shall leave this earth as legends.
Our only way to never die.
This will be our requiem.
In the company of death we walk side by side.
Cast your differences aside for the lives sacrificed.
I ask one final time to unite.
Earn the right to stand with pride.
We are in the company of death.
Cast your differences aside.
For the lives sacrificed to the earth and for those still to come we wash our hands of blood.
Carry with you the love of a mother and a fathers strength may our names echo throughout history.
Glory, never given without a price.
Glory, gnawed clean from the hands that feed.
The world is at your finger tips, tear it apart.
Rip and cut until the view is clear as far as the eye can see.
Honor the Gods and pay tribute to the human era.
A most humbling wind blows at the dawn of extinction.
Fire signals that sails are near.
Vestals of vile creatures appear.
Rest well tonight.
Tomorrow we walk through the flames of hell.
This will be our requiem.
Our testament to the heavens.

This song has a very special place in my life, as it helped me to wake up and crawl out of the darkness I was stuck in for far too long.

It's also a song that I feel NEEDS to be posted, given what happened here on CS.com this week. If you don't know what I'm referring to, go look at the Site News Forum.

"Waste" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkyjoD5XKI8&feature=share)Your mother came up to me
She wanted answers only she should know,
only she should know
It wasn't easy to deal
with the tears that rolled down her face
I had no answers, 'cause
I didn't even know you

But these words,
they can't replace
the life you,
the life you waste

How could you paint this picture?
Was life as bad as it should seem
that there were no more options for you?
I can't explain how I feel
I've been there many times before
I've tasted the cold steel of
my life crashing down before me

But these words,
they can't replace
the life you,
the life you waste

Did Daddy not love you?
Or did he love you just too much?
Did he control you?
Did he live through you at your cost?
Did he leave no questions
for you to answer on your own?

Well fuck them!
And fuck her!
And fuck him!
And fuck you
for not having the strength in your heart to pull through!
I've had doubts, I have failed
I've fucked up, I've had plans
Doesn't mean I should take my life with my own hands!

But these words,
they can't replace
the life you,
the life you waste

But these words,
they don't replace
the life you,
the life you waste

-shrugs- I suppose you could call these dark... :p

I lock the door
Turn all the water on
And bury that sound
So no one hears anything anymore
Mirrors lie to me, tell me you can see
Maybe you won't be able to recognize me now
I know you can feel all the things you steal
And you're taking, you're taking it

Feeling so easy
Make me skin and bones
I'm always on my knees for you
You break like it's even
When you're leaving it
Thin, where the hell have you been?

Well sometimes it burns
Baby I'll wash it out
It all looks so big
Never mind, I don't feel anything

It only hurt a bit
I still feel like shit
And I think you won't be able to recognize me now
It's easier to quit
It's harder to admit and
You're pushing me, you're fucking pushing me!

Feeling so easy
Make me skin and bones
I'm always on my knees for you
You break like it's even
When you're leaving it
Thin, where have you been?

'cause you always win
And you... yeah!

Laughin' like it works
Bleeding like it don't hurt
Knock you off your feet
Even if you need me
Tear you apart and I hate how I need you

Feeling too easy, make me skin and bones
I'm always on my knees for you
Break like it's even
When you're leaving

It's too fucking easy, make me skin and bones
I'm always on my knees for you
Break like it's even
When you're leaving it
Thin, where have you been?

'cause you always win, and you always win, you always win
I will burn all this [x9]

Wow, I have so many for this thread but I'll start with a couple for now...

Dust in the Wind ~ Kansas

I close my eyes
Only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Oh......

Now
Don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind



Another Day in Paradise ~ Phil Collins

She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh think twice
It's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh think twice
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can't walk but she's trying

Oh think twice
It's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh think twice
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from every place
'Cos she didn't fit in there

Oh think twice
It's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh think twice
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me in paradise

Unwritten Law - Save Me (Wake Up Call)

Had a bad day, don't talk to me, gonna ride this out
My little black heart breaks apart with your big mouth

And I'm sick of my sickness
Don't touch me, you'll get this
I'm useless, lazy, perverted, you hate me

You can't save me
You can't change me
Well I'm waiting for my wake up call
And everything
Everything's my fault

Went to the doctor and asked her to make this stop
Got medication, a new addiction, fuckin' thanks a lot

Had a relapse, I'm bad at rehabs, ruins everything
So point your finger at the singer
He's in the pharmacy

You can't save me
You can't change me
Well I'm waiting for my wake up call
And everything's my fault

You can't save me
You can't blame me
Well I'm waiting here to take the fall
And everything
Everything's my fault

And I'm a death threat
Haven't slept yet
Baby, why the wake up call?
I'm the bad boy
tell the tabloids
everything's my fault

(Whoa)
Yeah
Write it
Write it
(Whoa)
Everthing's my fault
Everthing's my fault

I went to heaven
I Couldn't get in
For what I had done
I said please take me
They said you're crazy
You had too much fun

You can't save me
You can't change me
Well I'm waiting for my wake up call
And everything's my fault

You can't save me
You can't blame me
Well I'm waiting here to take the fall
And everything
Everthing's my fault.

You can't save me
You can't change me
(Everthing's my fault)

Everything's my fault



Eels - It's A Motherfucker

It's a motherfucker
Being here without you
Thinking 'bout the good times
Thinking 'bout the bad
And I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
Getting through a Sunday
Talking to the walls
Just me again

But I won't ever be the same
I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
How much I understand
The feeling that you need someone
To take you by the hand

And you won't ever be the same
You won't ever be the same

Been playing this song a lot this week... VERY appropriate given one of the top news stories right now...

This song was released last year on the album Asylum...

"Innocence" by Disturbed (http://youtu.be/sYQzQAmX1Xo)Who is innocent? No one is innocent
Who is innocent?
Who is innocent? No one is innocent
Who is innocent?

Who is innocent? Is it relevant in the world today?
I shake my head in disbelief
The killer walks again, freed by evil men in their dark charade
This can't be happening

A mother's selfish pride, her child's homicide, can she be to blame?
The suited vultures circling
A father's cruelty, a murdered family, is the world insane?
Their defenders ready to embrace their lies with their devious smiles

Your corruption is like a cancer growing inside
You owe the world an apology
You've been taught all your life that truth is easy to hide
You'll face your judgment another day and suffer eternally

Who is innocent? No one is innocent
Who is innocent?

Presumed innocent, justice fails again in the masquerade
A battered woman trembling
Her lover drunk again, when will the torture end in her web of shame?
Is death the only way?

A child victimized, the crime politicized for the counselor's gain
The rabid media congregates
His tortured memories, a pervert's fantasies, is the world insane?
The parasitic devastation seen on your TV screen

Your corruption is like a cancer growing inside
You owe the world an apology
You've been taught all your life that truth is easy to hide
You'll face your judgment another day and suffer eternally

False defender, burn forever
False defender, burn forever
Cold and spineless, have you no soul?
Wicked minded, out of control and guided by their hunger
They will find new ways to betray us!

Your corruption is like a cancer growing inside
You owe the world an apology
You've been taught all your life that truth is easy to hide
You'll face your judgment another day and suffer eternally!

Who is innocent? Is it relevant in the world today?
I shake my head in disbelief
Presumed innocent, justice fails again in the masquerade
Has the whole world become insane?:muya:

These songs have been my theme songs recently. Both by Hatebreed

In Ashes They Shall Reap

Born to bleed fighting to succeed
Built to endure what this world throws at me

Let me tell you of a force crashing through my veins again
Like a page torn from a chapter of a book of better days
In the moments that we see together some will never know
It’s these words that never give to justice screaming all alone
I was BORN to bleed fighting to succeed
Built to endure what this world throws at me
Born to bleed fighting to succeed
Built to endure what this world throws at me

You may trusted me an answer and put hope in
Me a seed
All these memories come haunt us if we still feel to believe
Now the fear we all once held is a breath we must attain
Because those who sow in flames in ashes they shall reap
Ashes are all that you’re left with what you sow in flames
Our life sorrows of my own creation saving sand for a love
http://www.elyricsworld.com/in_ashes_they_shall_reap_lyrics_hatebreed.html

I was born to bleed fighting to succeed
Built to endure what this world throws at me
Born to bleed fighting to succeed
But those who sow in flames in ashes they shall reap
Those who sow in flames in ashes they shall reap


Give Wings To My Triumph

Here I am
Exposed in my brokenness
For the world to see
Here I am
Screaming these words
It's all I've ever known of serenity
Here I am
Telling my pain, bearing my soul to the world
Here I am
Venting on this page, flawed and insecure no more
Here I am
Coming clean with myself, knowing that this time would come
Here I am
Like a thousand voices, I know I'm not the only one
Now my fists must never become unclenched
Eternally prevailing against
I must endure the misfortune and bring starvation for those who hunger for my defeat

Give Wings To My Triumph
Let this life ascend
Give Wings To My Triumph
Give rebirth for every death

Here I am
Exposed in my brokenness
For the world to see
Here I am
Screaming these words
It's all I've ever known of serenity

See my will before you know
Life ascends in every breath
A rise for every fall
A life for every death

Give me wings
So I ascend
Let me soar, take me farther than ever before

Give Wings To My Triumph
Life ascends in every breath
Give Wings To My Triumph
Rebirth for every death
Give Wings To My Triumph
and let me soar
Give Wings To My Triumph
take me farther than before

Allentown ~ Billy Joel

Well we're living here in Allentown
And they're closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
Filling out forms
Standing in line.

Well our fathers fought the Second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Met our mothers at the USO
Asked them to dance
Danced with them slow
And we're living here in Allentown.

But the restlessness was handed down
And it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
aaaaaaah aaahhhhh ooooooooh ooooooh ohhhhhhh.

Well we're waiting here in Allentown
For the Pennsylvania we never found
For the promises our teachers gave
If we worked hard
If we behaved.

So the graduations hang on the wall
But they never really helped us at all
No they never taught us what was real
Iron or coke,
Chromium steel.

And we're waiting here in Allentown.
But they've taken all the coal from the ground
And the union people crawled awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaah.

Every child had a pretty good shot
To get at least as far as their old man got.
If something happened on the way to that place
They threw an American flag in our face, oh oh oh.

Well I'm living here in Allentown
And it's hard to keep a good man down.
But I won't be getting up todaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy
aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah.

GUITAR SOLO

aaaaaaah aaaaaaah aaaaaaah oh oh oh.

And it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
And we're living here in Allentown.

The Fuse by Jackson Browne:

It's coming from so far away
It's hard to say for sure
Whether what I hear is music or the wind
Through an open door
There's a fire high in the empty sky
Where the sound meets the shore
There's a long distance loneliness
Rolling out over the desert floor

And the years that I spent lost in the mystery
Fall away leaving only the sound of the drum
Like a part of me
It speaks to the heart of me
Forget what life used to be
You are what you choose to be
It's whatever it is you see
That life will become

Whatever it is you might think you have
You have nothing to lose
Through every dead and living thing
Time runs like a fuse
And the fuse is burning
And the earth is turning

Though the years give way to uncertainty
And the fear of living for nothing strangles the will
There's a part of me
That speaks to the heart of me
Though sometimes it's hard to see
It's never far from me
Alive in eternity
That nothing can kill

Oh lord
Are there really people starving still?
Look out beyond the walls of babylon
How long will their needs go unfilled
I want to say right now I'm going to be around
I'm going to be around
When the walls and towers are crumbling
When the towers are tumbling down
And I will tune my spirit to the gentle sound
I want to hear the sound
Of the waters lapping on a higher ground
Of the children laughing


I could post all kinds of dark stuff from him just from one album alone.

Composure by August Burns Red

Shake it off.
Pick yourself up, they say.
Your life fell apart in your hands, and you've got the scars to prove it.
It's not the first time, and they're getting deeper.
Pull it together.
Button up your shirt.
Roll down those sleeves.
Don't let them see how you've coped.
More and more your demeanor looks like quicksand.
It seems like your giving up on everything you worked for.
It's pulling you under.
It's gripping around your throat.
Life can be overwhelming, but don't turn your back on the strongest crutch you've ever had.
They have always been there to brace your fall.
Wave goodbye to the past.
You've got your whole life to lead.
It's time to gain some ground.

I LOVE this song. :lol:

Voltaire: "When You're Evil"

When the Devil is too busy
And Death's a bit too much
They call on me by name you see,
For my special touch.
To the Gentlemen I'm Miss Fortune
To the Ladies I'm Sir Prize
But call me by any name
Any way it's all the same

I'm the fly in your soup
I'm the pebble in your shoe
I'm the pea beneath your bed
I'm a bump on every head
I'm the peel on which you slip
I'm a pin in every hip
I'm the thorn in your side
Makes you wriggle and writhe

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

While there's children to make sad
While there's candy to be had
while there's pockets left to pick
While there's grannies left to trip down the stairs
I'll be there, I'll be waiting 'round the corner
It's a game. I'm glad I'm in it
'Cause there's one born every minute

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

I pledge my allegiance, to all things dark
And I promise on my damned soul
To do as I am told, Lord Beelzebub
Has never seen a soldier quite like me
Not only does his job, but does it happily.

I'm the fear that keeps you awake
I'm the shadows on the wall
I'm the monsters they become
I'm the nightmare in your skull
I'm a dagger in your back
An extra turn upon the rack
I'm the quivering of your heart
A stabbing pain, a sudden start.

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

It gets so lonely being evil
What I'd do to see a smile
Even for a little while
And no one loves you when you're evil
I'm lying through my teeth!
Your tears are all the company I need

Refined in the Fire by Winds of Plague

(my favorite line is 'I fear no evil, evil fucking fears me')

I walk this Earth alone, with broken bones. I fear no evil, evil fucking fears me. Your time has come, looking down the barrel of a smoking gun. I am the shadowed one. Evil fucking fears me! Evil fucking fears me! Refined in the fire, from the flames I emerge. Casted in steel. I am refined in the fire. From the flame we march on, to victory! Urgggggoh. Evil fucking fears me! Evil fucking fears me! I am refined in the fire. I am the weapon of choice. For the warrior King, recognize I'm refined in the fire. You'll see the dragon tremble at the song we sing. . I am refined in the fire. And will His kingdom fall, know that time will tell. Recognize I'm refined in the fire. Under the blood I stand, to bring war. Bring war on Hell.
I represent the army of the shadowed realm. I am a soldier for the damned and the broken. You will know me from my path of destruction. I write to you from Hell. Forward, oh! Forward, oh! Forward, oh! You want a war? You'll get a war. I was trained with pain hate and agony Desensitized, from this fucked world around me. I'm going out, and I'm taking you with me. I walk this Earth alone, with broken bones. I fear no evil, evil fucking fears me. Your time has come, looking down the barrel of a smoking gun. I am the shadowed one. Evil fucking fears me! Evil fucking fears me! Arahhhhhhuuuuhhh! Evil fucking fears me! Oh! Evil fucking fears me!

This is actually supposed to be a bit satirical, I think?


Emilie Autumn: "The Art of Suicide"

The art of suicide, nightgowns and hair
Curls flying every which-way
The fate too pure to hide
Bridges of sighs
Meant to conceal lovers lies

Under the arches of moonlight and sky
Suddenly easy to contemplate why
Why
Why live a life
That's painted with pity and sadness and strife
Why dream a dream
That's tainted with trouble and less than it seems
Why bother bothering
Just for a poem or another sad song to sing
Why live a lie
Why live a lie

The art of suicide, pretty and clean
Conveys a theatrical scene
Alas, I've gone she cried
Ankles displayed
Melodramatically laid

Under the arches of moonlight and sky
Suddenly easy to contemplate why
Why
Why live a life
That's painted with pity and sadness and strife
Why dream a dream
That's tainted with trouble and less than it seems
Why bother bothering
Just for a poem or another sad song to sing
Why live a lie
Why live a lie

Why live a life
That's painted with pity and sadness and strife
Why dream a dream
That's tainted with trouble and less than it seems
Why bother bothering
Just for a poem or another sad song to sing
Why live a lie
Why live a lie
Why live a lie
Why live a lie

Life is not like gloomy Sunday
With a second ending when the people are disturbed
Well they should be disturbed
Because there's a story that ought to be heard

Life is not like gloomy Sunday
With a second ending when the people are disturbed
Well they should be disturbed
Because there's a lesson that really ought to be learned

The world is full of poets
We don't need any more
The world is full of singers
We don't need any more
The world is full of lovers
We don't need any more

Just hearing this on the radio now, and it's not Monday (but soon will be), looks like it might rain today, but my heart is feeling rainy...and the one who supposedly loves me is in a mood... :( (maybe I can count my fellow CSers in the "loves me" category for today?)

Rainy Days and Mondays ~ The Carpenters

Talking to myself and feeling old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around, nothing to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothing is really wrong
Feeling like I don’t belong
Walking around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
It’s nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it’s the only thing to do
To run and find the one who loves me

What I feel is come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hanging around, nothing to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

(instrumental)

Funny but it seems that it’s the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel is come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hanging around, nothing to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Hangin around, nothing do to but frown
Rainy days and mondays always get me down

Avenged Sevenfold: "Welcome to the Family"

Hey kids, do I have your attention
I know the way you've been living
Life's a wreckless tragedy endless
Welcome to the Family
Hey there's something missing
Only time will alter your vision
Never in question lethal injection
Welcome to the Family

Not long ago you found the answers were so crystal clear
Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear
Can you look at yourself now, can you look at yourself
You can't win this fight

In a way it seems there's no-one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And feelings aren't sure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight

Hey I have to question
What's with the violent aggression
Details blurry, lost him too early
Welcome to the Family
Hey, why won't you listen
Can't help the people you're missing
It's been done a casualty re-run
Welcome to the Family

I try and help you with the
Things that can't be justified
I need to warn you
There is no way to rationalize
So have you figured it out now
So have you figured it out
You can't win this fight

In a way it seems there's no-one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And feelings aren't sure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight

(Gunning for you
And all mankind
I've lost my mind
Psychotic
Rabid dementia
I won't be fine)

I see you're a king who's been dethroned
Cast out
In a world you've never known
Stand there
Place your weapons by your side
It's a war in the end
We'll surely lose
But that's alright

So have you figured it out now
So have you figured it out

And in a way it seems there's no-one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And our feelings aren't sure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight

(Deep inside
Where nothing's fine
I've lost my mind
You're not invited
So step aside
I lost my)

Emilie Autumn "Let the Record Show"

Turning tricks with absent guile
Reeling in your crooked smile
Why did I turn to you?
I only wanted a hand to pour my heart into
And now I'll bump my grind through another night
Lose my mind in another fight
Why did I turn to you?
I only gave you a chance to prove the rumors true
And now I'm paying with my
Paying with my life
I'm paying with my life
My life
My life

So let the record show
That you murdered me
In your coldest blood
With your own two hands
Don't think no one understands
It happens every day

Working life like a burlesque show
Get them off and they'll let you go
Why did I turn to you?
I only turned out to be just one more girl you slew
And now I'll bump my grind through another
Lose my mind in another
Why, why, why, why?
I only gave you a chance to prove the rumors true
And now I'm paying with my
Paying with my life
I'm paying with my life
My life
My life

So let the record show
That you murdered me
In your coldest blood
With your own two hands
Don't think no one understands
It happens every day
You're jealous, oh
You're jealous, why?
It's a simple excuse
For a complex crime
So write this on your soul
But don't waste my time

If I'm going down
Then I'm doing down good
If I'm going down
Then I'm going down clean
If I'm going down
Then I'm going down
The prettiest broken girl you've ever seen
If I'm going down
Then I'm going down good
If I'm going down
Then I'm going down clean
If I'm going down
Then I'm going
The prettiest wretched whore you've ever seen

But while I breathe
I've got no evidence to prove my end
And so you'll walk away?
Nope, wrong again

So let the record show
That you murdered me
In your coldest blood
With your own two hands
Don't think no one understands
It happens every day
You're jealous, oh
You're jealous, why?
It's a simple excuse for a complex crime
So write this on your soul

And let it show
That you murdered me
In your coldest blood
With your own two hands
Don't think no one understands
It happens every day
You're jealous, oh
You're jealous, why?
It's a simple excuse for a complex crime
So write this on your soul
But don't waste my time

Anyone heard this light hearted catchy tune?


Pumped Up Kicks

Robert's got a quick hand.
He looking 'round the room, he won't tell you his plan.
He's got a rolled up cigarette, hanging out his mouth he's a cowboy kid.
Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
In his dad's closet with a box of fun things, I don't even know what.
But he's coming for you, yeah, he's coming for you.
(chorus)
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, you'd better run, better run faster than my bullet.
(repeat chorus)

Daddy works a long day.
He's coming home late, yeah, he's coming home late.
And he's bringing me a surprise. His dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice.
I've waited for a long time.
Yet the slide of my hand is now a quick pulled trigger.
I reason with my cigarette, And say your hair's on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.

(Repeat chorus)
