So, I haven't seen a thread about this in quite some time and being a new mod; I'm floundering to get out of my inactivity posting in General.


WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE/MOST INSPIRATIONAL SONG LYRICS?

Mine are:

If the sky is the limit, then I'll build a bridge up to it.
If I make it back, I'd still want more, more.
If the sky is the limit, then I'll steal the air that's in it.
I won't take it back, I'd still want more.
I'd still want more.


They remind me of the potential that I have and the drive it takes to reach said potential.

"Don't ever let the world defeat you
Don't get buried in its decay
For it only takes a fraction of a second
For all of this to change"

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.

That's from Bon Jovi's "Have a Nice Day", which incidentally is also a life theme song for me. It's basically a 'fuck you' to everyone and everything that expects me to live by their perception of what is right/wrong for me instead of what -I- feel is right for my life. :D Complete with a smile on my face and telling them to have a nice day.

I have many. :3 But here's one. It's called Just Like You, by Three Days Grace.

"I could be weak
I could be senseless
You know I could be just like you

You thought you were standing beside me
You were only in my way
You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you"

It always inspires me to do something great. Something that Fluffys do best. :D For too long, people tried to make me into something else. When all their plans did was fail and make me depressed, I finally put my foot down and told them to fuck off. If you don't like me, then leave me.

*High fives Fluffy for Three Days Grace!*

In fact, speaking of Three Days Grace:

If you can't stand,
The way this place is
Take, yourself, to higher places​

That's from their "Break" song. >>;; I like to scream that at people who complain about anything from where they're at to their life sucking. >:D

Awake! My obdurate soul
A star shatters the morning
Let us undo the future
Sail the sunset towards a new Dawn
Unfurl the banner invictus
Begotten in iron embrace

Crush the tranquil mercies of catatonia
Put to sword the palsied dog
Abandon the I that was
Engender the fierce spirit

The Surface by Rosesdead

The sky is clear.
The light will shine.
The sea is calm.
All doubt is lost.
All eyes are open.
The peace is near.
Words can't describe, what life was like.
I was underneath the wake.
Those darkened days, I'll leave behind.
It was more than I could take.
And yet, if it could happen all again, I wouldn't want it any other way.
If I could do it all again, I wouldn't change a single thing.
This is the start of something.
This is the start of something new.
I've never felt like this before.
I never thought I would see this soar.
Make this fight worth your time.
Make sure you don't regret a thing. Don't regret a thing.
Now that I'm looking down, this is the way it was meant to be.
(As I stand here, I realize. In order to grow from what once was, all of this needed to happen. Now I'm finally where I need to be.)
Make mistakes. Make your dreams. Live your life. Make mistakes. Live your dreams. Make this real.
Let light rain down on me.
These words may never describe, exactly what I felt inside.
But I know how hard I tried and that I'll learn to make the most of this life.

Hey, don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away.

It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hey, you know they're all the same.
You know you're doing better on your own, so don't buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else.

It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just do your best, do everything you can.
And don't you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say.

It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Treachery of vengeful cruelty and power beyond greed
Defaming the flame of veneration
Smother that which would burn
Accursed is the key to power and glory
But settles envy's wages - Seek!
That glittering gold, the slave has enslaved...

II

Sorrow lies unarmed and wounded
From judgement and vengeance in flight
Woeful is led to the "needy"
As the victor is led to his kin
What marvels could heroes perform
That their gods were unable to do?
Disgrace and betrayal plague the Blessed Ones
As sorrow is thrown to the dogs
Rashness retreats the Battlefather's rage
Walls of flames and the empty glory of divinity

III

He who has never learned to fear
Only can forge an ultimate freedom from
The dying father's shattered steel
Rebirthed to lick the hot blood cool
(So) There Lies Your Lord!
The Father of Victories - Lord Of Light
(Now!) Bathe in the fire!!!

IV

Here I speak of Holy Things
When the ash-wood burns and fierce flames consume...
O sacred Gods hail this raidant Star - Hail!
Sounding from the Noble River
He, to be betrayed, the Son of Freedom
Now more than the heavens
And the Glory of the Gods matters
The accursed key of Eternal Joy
Unerring Sorrow deceived into whitened sepulchre
Compelled into shame by the Hordes of Night
Near the shore comes the charlatan
Before altars flow with blood, illusion - treachery!
Oaths and perjury are idle words
Heavenly Hosts hear the vow of vengeance
Fly home you ravens: rest now blessed hero
There Lies Your Lord!
The flames allure - the accursed key is cleansed
Hojotoho! There Lies Your Lord! Hojotoho!

Some people offered up answers
We made out like we heard
They were only words
They didn't add up
To a change in the way we were living
And the saddest thing
Is all of it could have been avoided

But it was like to stop consuming's to stop being human
And why'd I make a change if you won't?
We're all in the same boat
Staying afloat for the moment

This one is pretty rad too, but I don't think anyone here remembers it.

Mr. Big - Green Tinted Sixties Mind <---- Click it!

She just woke up, but she's still tired
Is that the telephone ringing?
The curtains can't hold back the light
That's reaching into her dreams
Down in her heart
If it had fingers, it'd be tearing it apart

You be lookin' groovy
In a sixties movie
Maybe tell the press you died
Little legend baby
Try your very best to hide
A green-tinted sixties mind

She keeps some memories locked away
But they are always escaping
neclgect won't make them fade away
They're reaching into her dreams
Down in her heart
Don't need fingers to be tearing it apart

Gotta face the day
There is no other way
To clear the fog inside your mind
Fill it up with dreams
But all that you can seem to find
A green-tinted sixties mind

Hangin' out with Janis
Movin' to Atlantis
Could've made it if you tried
What's the point of force
It's easy as a horse to ride
A green-tinted sixties mind

You be looking groovy
In a sixties movie
Maybe tell the press you died
Little legend baby
Try your very best to hide
A green-tinted sixties mind
-U can't hide-

Oh yeah... and let's not forget this bad ass song.

The Wallflowers - One Headlight <---- Click it!


So long ago, I don't remember when
That's when they say I lost my only friend
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
As I listened through the cemetery trees

I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
The long broken arm of human law
Now it always seemed such a waste
She always had a pretty face
So I wondered how she hung around this place

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be something better than
In the middle
But me & Cinderella,
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

She said it's cold
It feels like Independence Day
And I can't break away from this parade
But there's got to be an opening
Somewhere here in front of me
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
And I seen the sun up ahead
At the county line bridge
Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
We'll run until she's out of breath
She ran until there's nothin' left
She hit the end-it's just her window ledge

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be something better than
In the middle
But me & Cinderella,
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

Well this place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
I think her death it must be killin' me

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be something better than
In the middle
But me & Cinderella,
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight​

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Helloween - Don't run for cover. Power metal is always my go to sub genre for inspiration.

Listen here!


You hide, won't fight
Avoid the daylight
Give in, won't win
No try to make it right

Why don't you stop crying
Stop your painful dying
Why don't you give your life a sense

One game, one aim
But you're always sleeping
One light so bright
In darkness you're creeping

Why don't you use your head
Step out of your warm bed
And stop being on anxious rat

Bridge:
Run - for your destination
Fly - to the sun
Don't give a damn what the people may say
It's like a chain on your leg
When you always look back
If you don't risk anything one day you'll pay

Chorus:
Don't run for cover
Don't cry alone
Make a step on your stairway
One step closer to what you live for
Don't run for cover
Don't throw away
The only chance that you got
To be the fire in a hot life you choose

No pride, no right ?
In your heart is more strength
You know, I know
Your destiny's in your hand

Now you have this time
To survive don't be blind
In this world where so many can't see

Bridge:
Try - to catch the key
Make - that you can see
The light of your life your way to go

Pfuu, Jumi. I had the entire CBox listening to that the other day. xD

This has meaning to me.

"Father of mine
Tell me where did you go
You had the world inside your hand
But you did not seem to know
Father of mine
Tell me what do you see
When you look back at your wasted life
And you don't see me"

Father of Mine - Everclear

Also, I think some of you may like this:



Little Red - Coca Cola

My one and only advice... is cold Coca Cola and ice.
With a lemon slice on my lip,
no I never waste a sip.

But I like you, and I know
I know you like it too.

Mmmm it's so fine.
Yeah it's alright!
Ohh, that lovely flavour.
In my mind, I'm gonna savour.

The taste on your lips
I never waste a kiss.

I like you...
and I know, I know you like it too.


It's like sugar high whenever you come around
But the higher I fly the greater the come down
I keep coming back for more,
of that taste I adore.
Taste like you...
and I know... I know you like it too.

My one and only advice is coke, coca cola and ice.

Hey do you like it?

How much do you like it?
You know how I like it!

Woahhhh.. ice cold Cola!

I took a couple days to actually think about what all inspires me, so to speak.

a. Puscifer - Momma Sed

Wake up, son of mine.
Momma got something to tell you.
Changes come.
Life will have its way with your pride, son.
Take it like a man.

Hang on, son of mine.
A storm is blowing on the horizon.

Changes come.
Keep your dignity.
Take the high road,
Take it like a man.

Listen up, son of mine.
Momma got something to tell you.
All about growing pains.
Life will pound away where the light don't shine, son.

Take it like a man.
Suck it up, son of mine.
Thunder blowing up the horizon.

Changes come.
Keep your dignity.
Take the high road.
Take it like a man.

Momma said like the rain,
this too shall pass like a kidney stone.
It's just a broken heart, son.
This pain will pass away.


To me, this song is basically one of those "you gotta suck it up and get past it" kind of songs. Life throws you many curve balls... how you react to those defines you as a person. "Take the high road, take it like a man".

b. Looptroop Rockers - Professional Dreamers

Living a dream don't wanna wake up

I never dreamed about getting paid
I dreamed that the people never forget the name,Looptroop
I dreamed about getting fame the hiphop way I read "getting up"
And it modeled my work ethics
I got up every morning starting putting words together
Words from my dreams about living in a better world together
Sounds like work forever but that's cool my work is a dream
And my work is to dream so you can call me a dreamer
Call me dream weaver naive believer
I'm still an achiever professional dreamer

Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, 'cause we're
Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, living

I got memories for sale autobiography
Everything that's real now started as somebody's dream
A vision of the future notes on a wrinkled piece of paper
Like my feet getting too big for these shoes, see you later
And regardless if I win or loose I gave it a shot
In one way I won anyway whether you like it or not
And the story's not over my daugther need me to stay
Like child I make the rest up along the way
To all beautiful losers have faith and pride
Don't let nobody kill that creative drive
And to my friends I love you til' next time you see me
Keep conquering the world word to douglas keep dreaming

Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, 'cause we're
Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, living

Since 92 we've been on this trip with no end station
Seems hopeless but this is the destination
Still got planes to board tracks to record
But we're not greedy couldn't ask for more
Suddenly my dream became a nightmare
The music woke me up now I'm back in this right here
And I'm a team player I need these guys
Thanks for holdin the seat let's reach the skies
From big citis to outbacks we're backpackers
No plans too big for these dream catchers
So as ling as we breathe we'll still strive
'Cause it's the dream that's keeping us alive

Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, 'cause we're
Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, living


TL;DR? Don't give up on your dreams! If these guys can make their dreams come true, why can't any of us? Never give up!

There was a smoldering thunder
Vicious corruption of the purity on the Ether
We once believed in the Spiritual induction
Cause and Myth of a grand knowledge of Fury
and once I walked in the Deadly path
and once I drifted below the crisp infidel winds
There was Pestilence and Rain made of Tears
A Coven of Hunters and King-priest
and a hollow structure of fallen dreams and Megalomania
infects the Crypts, of my Reign of Despair
The Beast Within, the warm breath of my inner Demons
Corrosion of the last delusion
Infraworld and Infrafate I speak to you,
My Elder Ancestry
I remain strong and strong is the will
To conquer and expulse
the decimators of the stolen Prosperity,
Retribution of the Lost Years...
