    Guns 'n Roses, Coma.

    "Slippin' farther an farther away
    It's a miracle how long we can stay
    In a world our minds created
    In a world that's full of shit"

    Saint Vitus, Born too late:

    "They say I look like the living dead
    They say I can't have much in my head
    They say my songs are much too slow
    But they don't know the things I know"

    Turisas, One more:

    "Gathered round the wooden table
    Same tavern as the nights before
    I brace myself against the gable
    Sunlight pushes its way through the gap in the door

    As the golden sunbeams reach my eyes
    I stand up and raise my pint up high

    One more for our brothers who fought beside us
    One more and forward again
    Once more, we'll fight and conquer
    Until we'll meet again

    Staring at the stools not taken
    I reach for my tankard of ale
    The silence remains unbroken
    All you hear is a tinkle of mail

    As the golden sunbeams reach my eyes
    I stand up and raise my pint up high

    One more for our brothers..."
     
  2. I really like the last song, October! It's got a great mood to it.

    European Oils; Destroyer
    I made a tomb for all the incompatible cells I could take.
    I brought bells to the wake.
    And you, you didn't mind shedding your beautiful European blood as I
    screamed - "Death to the murderers we've loved all our lives!"

    I was good with names.

    I had a way with faces.
    I was the dominant theme in a number of places.
    And you, you didn't mind mixing your beautiful European oils for a still life.
    Oh Candice, we should've run for our lives!

    When I'm at war I insist on a slaughter and getting it on with

    the hangman's daughter.
    She needs release.
    She needs to feel at peace with her father, the fucking maniac...

    Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    I wanted you.
    I wanted these treasures, too...



    Smells Like Content; The Books

    Then finally,
    we opened the box, we couldn't find any rules.
    Our heads were reeling with the glitter of possibilities, contingencies...
    but with ever increasing faith we decided to go ahead and just ignore them,
    despite tremendous pressure to capitulate with fate.


    Dust Bowl Dance - Mumford and Sons
    Well you are my accuser, now look in my face
    Your opression reeks of your greed and disgrace
    So one man has and another has not
    How can you love what it is you have got
    When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
    Liars and thieves you know not what is in store

    There will come a time I will look in your eye
    You will pray to the God that you always denied
    The I'll go out back and I'll get my gun
    I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"

    Seal my heart and brake my pride
    I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
    Align my heart, my body, my mind
    To face what I've done and do my time

    Well yes sir, yes sir, yes it was me
    I know what I've done, cause I know what I've seen
    I went out back and I got my gun
    I said, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"
     
  3. @ Basil- Yes! I love Turisas. Most of their lyrics are medieval themed. I almost went to see them when they played in SF, Had to work though > <
     
  4. DAN LE SAC VS. SCROOBIUS PIP - 'Waiting For The Beat To Kick In'
    See you can live your life in control and be nice,
    But even that will not promise you a happy life,
    You may think yourself in general to be a nice guy,
    But I'm telling you now - that right there is a lie,
    Even the nicest of guys has some nasty within 'em,
    You don't have to be backlit to be the villain,
    Whether it be greed lust or just plain vindictiveness,
    There's a level of benevolence inside all of us,
    You can paint yourself an image and live in your own little dream,
    But this ain't a dream, it's one big silver screen,
    So when you think you've got your happy ending don't ever forget it,
    It ain't over til you hear the sound of your end credits,
    You'll be waiting for the beat to kick in,
    But it never does.
     
  5. Florence + The Machine

    Blinding

    "It seems that I have been held in some dreaming state,
    A tourist in the waking world, never quite awake.
    No kiss, no gentle word could wake me from this slumber,
    Until I realized- it was you who held me under

    Felt in my fists, in my feet, in the hallows of my eyelids,
    Shaking through my skull, down my spine, and down through my ribs...

    No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone!
    No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden!
    No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love-
    No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love-
    No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world."

    Ye Old Hope

    "And when they found you hanging in the ward you said
    'At least now I don't have to be kind or good!'
    I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene!
    Tear out my tongue-
    Cause I've been redeemed!

    Save my blushes for the grave,
    No shy glance- no coy restraint!
    And I won't hang my head and I won't repent!
    Won't 'face the wall and count to ten'!

    Well they tore you down
    And they tore out your tongue
    And they made you kneel for all the things that you'd done-
    Cause you wouldn't cry and you wouldn't beg-
    You just grinned and tore out your teeth instead."

    Mindless Self Indulgence

    You'll Rebel to Anything

    "Boo fuckin hoo you're not the only one whose life's a piece of shit
    And yet miraculously somehow we all seem to deal with it
    Did anybody think that you would really seriously slit your wrists?
    In fact I think that everybody thinks you're seriously full of shit!"

    (I like to play this song REALLY loud when I get feeling too sorry for myself. It always makes me laugh.)

    More later I have to go pack the car.

    OH! PERFECT! I don't know what it's called or who it's by, but there is a line in a song I have always loved:

    "I wish the real world would just stop bothering me."
     
  6. I really love Jim Stienman. Some may judge me. I care not.

    Meat Loaf feat. Patti Russo - I Would Do Anything For Love
    Would you raise me up, will you help me down? Will you get me right out of this god-forsaken town?
    Can you make it all a little less cold?

    I can do that. Oh, I can do that.
    Will you hold me sacred, will you hold me tight? Can you colorize my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
    Can you make it all a little less old?

    I can do that. Oh, yeah, I can do that.
    Will you make me some magic with your own two hands? Can you build an Emerald City with these grains of sand?
    Can you give me something I can take home?

    I can do that. Oh, I can do that.
    Will you cater to every fantasy I've got? Will you hose me down with holy water if I get too hot?
    Will you take me places I've never known?

    I can do that. Oh, I can do that.
    After a while, you'll forget everything. It was a brief interlude in a midsummer-night's fling.
    And you'll see that it's time to move on.

    I won't do that. No, I won't do that.
    I know the territory, I've been around. It will all turn to dust, and we'll all fall down.
    Sooner or later, you'll be screwin' around.

    I won't do that. Oh, I won't do that.
     
  7. I Want to Be Loved ~ Bon Jovi

    Show Spoiler
    I had a roof overhead
    Had shoes on my feet
    Sure I was fed, but no-one was there
    When I was in need, yeah

    So who am I now?
    Who do you want me to be?
    I can forgive you, but I won't relive you
    I aint the same scared kid I used to be

    I'm gonna live
    I'm gonna survive
    Don't want the world to pass me by
    I'm gonna dream
    I aint gonna die
    Thinking my life was just a lie
    I wanna be loved
    I wanna be loved

    I found a picture
    Our so-called family tree, yeah
    I broke all the branches, looking for answers
    Don't you know that aint how it's supposed to be

    I'm gonna live
    I'm gonna survive
    Don't want the world to pass me by
    I'm gonna dream
    I ain't gonna die
    Thinking my life was just a lie
    I wanna give
    I'm ready to try
    Willing to lay it on the line
    I wanna be loved
    I wanna be

    I aint gonna cry
    I dont wanna scream
    But i got so much left unsaid inside of me

    I just wanna be loved
    I wanna be loved

    ; Was one of my theme songs throughout life. I have a dysfunctional family and an abusive step-dad, so that song kept me going at times.


    Call Me ~ Shinedown

    Show Spoiler
    Wrap me in a bolt of lightning
    Send me on my way still smiling
    Maybe that's the way I should go,
    Straight into the mouth of the unknown
    I left the spare key on the table
    Never really thought I'd be able to say
    I merely visit on the weekends
    I lost my whole life and a dear friend

    I've said it so many times
    I would change my ways
    No, nevermind
    God knows I've tried

    Call me a sinner, call me a saint
    Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
    Call me your favorite, call me the worst
    Tell me it's over I don't want you to hurt
    It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way

    I finally put it all together,
    But nothing really lasts forever
    I had to make a choice that was not mine,
    I had to say goodbye for the last time
    I kept my whole life in suitcase,
    Never really stayed in one place
    Maybe that's the way it should be,
    You know I live my life like a gypsy

    I've said it so many times
    I would change my ways
    No, nevermind
    God knows I've tried

    Call me a sinner, call me a saint
    Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
    Call me your favorite, call me the worst
    Tell me it's over I don't want you to hurt
    It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way

    I'll always keep you inside, you healed my
    Heart and my life... And you know I try.

    Call me a sinner, call me a saint
    Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
    Call me your favorite, call me the worst
    Tell me it's over I don't want you to hurt
    It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way
    So, I'll be on my way
    So, I'll be on my way

    ; Just a beautiful song. Makes me sad, but also makes me happy. Gives me an overall wonderful feeling inside.


    Never Too Late ~ Three Days Grace

    Show Spoiler
    This world will never be
    What I expected
    And if I don't belong
    Who would have guessed it
    I will not leave alone
    Everything that I own
    To make you feel like it's not too late
    It's never too late

    Even if I say
    It'll be alright
    Still I hear you say
    You want to end your life
    Now and again we try
    To just stay alive
    Maybe we'll turn it all around
    'Cause it's not too late
    It's never too late

    No one will ever see
    This side reflected
    And if there's something wrong
    Who would have guessed it
    And I have left alone
    Everything that I own
    To make you feel like
    It's not too late
    It's never too late

    Even if I say
    It'll be alright
    Still I hear you say
    You want to end your life
    Now and again we try
    To just stay alive
    Maybe we'll turn it all around
    'Cause it's not too late
    It's never too late

    The world we knew
    Won't come back
    The time we've lost
    Can't get back
    The life we had
    Won't be ours again

    This world will never be
    What I expected
    And if I don't belong

    Even if I say
    It'll be alright
    Still I hear you say
    You want to end your life
    Now and again we try
    To just stay alive
    Maybe we'll turn it all around
    'Cause it's not too late
    It's never too late
    Maybe we'll turn it all around
    'Cause it's not too late
    It's never too late (It's never too late)
    It's not too late
    It's never too late

    ; Another one of those songs that helps pick me up when I'm down.


    Can't Repeat ~ Offspring

    Show Spoiler
    I woke the other day
    And saw my world has changed
    The past is over but tomorrow‘s wishful thinking
    I can‘t hold onto what‘s been done
    I can‘t grab onto what‘s to come
    And I‘m just wishing I could stop, but

    Life goes on
    Come of age
    Can‘t hold on
    Turn the page

    Time rolls on
    Wipe these eyes
    Yesterday laughs
    Tomorrow cries

    Memories are bittersweet
    The good times we can‘t repeat
    Those days are gone and we can never get them back
    Now we must move ahead
    Despite our fear and dread
    We‘re all just wishing we could stop, but

    Life goes on
    Come of age
    Can‘t hold on
    Turn the page

    Time rolls on
    Wipe your eyes
    Yesterday laughs
    Tomorrow cries

    With all our joys and fears
    Wrapped in forgotten years
    The past is laughing as today just slips away
    Time tears down what we‘ve made
    And sets another stage
    And I‘m just wishing we could stop

    Life goes on
    Come of age
    Can‘t hold on
    Turn the page

    Time rolls on
    Wipe these eyes
    Yesterday laughs
    Tomorrow cries

    ; Started listening to this one a lot after high school. I've grown up, I've had to leave things and people behind while they've done the same to me. Time to move on and stop cryin'.


    Heh, that's all for now. I could go on and on, but 4 seems like plenty. XD
     
  8. The Offspring - Gone Away

    Maybe in another life
    I could find you there
    Pulled away before your time
    I can’t deal it’s so unfair


    And it feels
    And it feels like
    Heaven’s so far away
    And it feels
    Yeah it feels like
    The world has grown cold
    Now that you’ve gone away


    Leaving flowers on your grave
    Show that I still care
    But black roses and hail mary’s
    Can’t bring back what’s taken from me
    I reach to the sky
    And call out your name
    And if I could trade
    I would


    And it feels
    And it feels like
    Heaven’s so far away
    And it stings
    Yeah it stings now
    The world is so cold
    Now that you’ve gone away


    Modest Mouse - Missed the Boat

    While we're on the subject
    Could we change the subject now?
    I was knocking on your ear's door but you were always out
    Looking towards the future
    We were begging for the past
    Well we knew we had the good things
    But those never seemed to last
    Oh please just last

    Everyone's unhappy
    Everyone's ashamed
    Well we all just got caught looking
    At somebody else's page
    Well nothing ever went
    Quite exactly as we planned
    Our ideas held no water
    But we used them like a dam

    Oh, and we carried it all so well
    As if we got a new position
    Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell
    Saying yes, this is a fine promotion
    Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell

    Of course everyone goes crazy
    Over such and such and such
    We made ourselves a pillar
    We just used it as a crutch
    We were certainly uncertain
    At least I'm pretty sure I am
    Well we didn't need the water
    But we just built that good God dam

    Oh, and I know this of myself
    I assume as much for other people
    Oh, and I know this of myself
    We've listened more to life's end gong
    Than the sound of life's sweet bliss

    Was it ever worth it?
    Was there all that much to gain?
    Well we knew we missed the boat
    And we'd already missed the plane
    We didn't read the invite
    We just dance at our wake
    All our favorites were playing
    So we could shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

    Tiny curtains open and we heard the tiny clap of little hands
    A tiny man would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all the folks
    Sitting drifting around in bubbles and thinking it was us that carried them
    When we finally got it figured out that we had truly missed the boat

    Oh, and we carried it all so well
    As if we got a new position
    Oh, and we owned all the tools ourselves
    But not the skills to make a shelf with
    Oh, what useless tools ourselves

    Sea Wolf - Dew in the Grass

    Here by the riverside
    I brought my soon-to-be-bride
    Through the fog and smoke
    Watched the geese and the barges flow

    She sang in the city dawn
    Wrapped my limbs inside her clear song
    Every car passing by
    Slowed to hear my beloved's sigh

    And the dew in the grass had an electric glow
    Yeah, the dew in the grass had an electric glow

    And the light cut right through
    Through our skin, through our bones
    Yeah, the light cut right through
    Where it glows
    And it glows

    Way up near the lighthouse runs
    Heard the crack of the hunters' guns
    She held onto my hand
    Drew our names in the river's sand

    And the dew in the grass had an electric glow
    Yeah, the dew in the grass had an electric glow

    And the light cut right through
    Through our skin, through our bones
    Yeah, the light cut right through
    Where it glows
    And it glows

    And coming down in the cold cold fluorescent
    We watched the branches in the water drifting
    I said I'd never let it happen to you
    I said I'd never let it happen to you
    And the hunters coming down
    Won't bother us with their sounds
    No, the hunters coming down
    Won't bother us again with their sounds

    And the dew in the grass had an electric glow
    Yeah, the dew in the grass had an electric glow

    And the light cut right through
    Through our skin, through our bones
    Yeah, the light cut right through
    Where it glows
    And it glows



    Gotye - Out Here in the Cold

    Darlin’ don’t leave me out here in the cold
    I’m begging you baby don’t leave me out here on my own

    I’ll die,
    If you don’t hold me tight
    Tonight,
    I couldn’t make it outside
    If I tried,
    So please let me in lover,
    Be kind

    Darlin’ don’t desert me in here it’s so dark
    Don’t leave me here darlin’ don’t you know I can’t stand to part

    Oh but I’ll stay,
    If you promise to keep me safe,
    I can’t make it alone,
    I’m afraid,
    Oh my angel just don’t go away

    Please, don’t leave me out here in the cold
    No, no please don’t leave me out here on my own
     
  9. Atreyu - At Least I know I'm A Sinner
    Show Spoiler
    Lift up a stone and you will find him,
    Cherish the beauty in the world around us
    Not in buildings or crosses made by man
    Judge me, fuck you, stop playing god,
    Your forked tongue prophecies,
    Carelessly caressing the wounds of the weak
    People like you should be crucified,
    Then maybe just maybe you would have an idea
    Of what you are talking about.
    My only solace is that one day,
    Judgment will come for the wicked, then we will see who burns
    Raise up your head, unclasp your hands,
    Your weakness makes me tremble
    True strength comes from within
    And we were given this life to live,
    Not exist under standards, set by some bullshit rule book
    What prayers of yours, were ever answered, by degrading others
    Spare me your biblical back peddling nonsense
    For the people that you've hurt, and the being your dishonor,
    Your fall from grace, will finally justify my means
    Judge me and now you are me and what's worse
    You are now a traitor to your god
    Tell me Judas, how does it feel to be looked down upon
    Sinners like you, should be stung up from the highest tree
    You judged me and now you are me, stop playing god


    Blink 182 - Adam's Song
    Show Spoiler
    I never thought I'd die alone
    I laughed the loudest who'd have known?
    I trace the cord back to the wall
    No wonder it was never plugged in at all
    I took my time, I hurried up
    The choice was mine I didn't think enough
    I'm too depressed to go on
    You'll be sorry when I'm gone

    [Chorus:]
    I never conquered, rarely came
    16 just held such better days
    Days when I still felt alive
    We couldn't wait to get outside
    The world was wide, too late to try
    The tour was over we'd survived
    I couldn't wait till I got home
    To pass the time in my room alone

    I never thought I'd die alone
    Another six months I'll be unknown
    Give all my things to all my friends
    You'll never step foot in my room again
    You'll close it off, board it up
    Remember the time that I spilled the cup
    Of apple juice in the hall
    Please tell mom this is not her fault

    [Chorus:]
    I never conquered, rarely came
    16 just held such better days
    Days when I still felt alive
    We couldn't wait to get outside
    The world was wide, too late to try
    The tour was over we'd survived
    I couldn't wait till I got home
    To pass the time in my room alone

    I never conquered, rarely came
    But tomorrow holds such better days
    Days when I can still feel alive
    When I can't wait to get outside
    The world is wide, the time goes by
    The tour is over, I've survived
    I can't wait till I get home
    To pass the time in my room alone


    Jimmy Eat World - Pain
    Show Spoiler
    I don't feel the way I've ever felt.
    I know.
    I'm gonna smile and not get worried.
    I try but it shows.

    Anyone can make what I have built.
    And better now
    Anyone can find the same white pills.
    It takes my pain away.

    [Chorus]
    It's a lie. A kiss with open eyes
    And she's not breathing back.
    Anything but bother me.
    (It takes my pain away)
    Nevermind these are hurried times.
    Oh oh oh
    I can't let it bother me.

    I never thought I'd walk away from you.
    I did.
    But it's a false sense of accomplishment.
    Every time I quit

    Anyone can see my every flaw.
    It isn't hard.
    Anyone can say they're above this all.
    It takes my pain away.

    [Chorus]

    I can't let it bother me.

    [Guitar Solo]

    It takes my pain away.

    [Chorus]

    Takes my pain
    Takes my pain
    Takes my pain
    Takes my pain away


    I've only three songs for you today, because I'm exhausted.
     
  10. The original by Tiffany, but I like the Girls Aloud version.



    Running just as fast as we can.
    Holding onto one another's hands.
    Trying to get away into the night.
    Then you put your arms around me and
    we tumble to the ground then say.

    I think we're alone now.
    I think we're alone.
    Doesn't seem to be anyone around.
    I think we're alone now.
    The beating of our hearts is the only sound.
     
  11. The explanation behind the user name, for those who have forgotten. This is the title track of the Order From Chaos album.


    I am an alien from another world
    Sent to communicate a message
    Of wisdom I speak but no one hears me
    Deaf ears, dull eyes leave me behind

    Encased inside blooded flesh
    I communicate my message of truth
    But you are senseless
    To what should never have been forgotten
    The walls are built higher and stronger
    Word by word, the walls of ignorance
    And the worm procreates in my belly

    Begat of spite and hate
    I must pay the wage of sin
    Delusions of grandeur
    Until my birth starts again

    Contractions warm this beating heart
    Umbilically chained to the machine
    Re-emergence of a second coming
    Deliverance into the barren world
    Infanticidal process of regurgitation
    And the chrisom's tears cannot dry

    Realization hits like a hammer
    As societal stillbirth machine rolls on
    Rusty gears feeding itself confusion
    I choke and gasp on this poisoned world
    And see myself and other human wreckage
    If I had just one wish it would be
    To crawl back into the womb

    Hope is the lie that gropes towards doom
    Blind leading blind
    What we were, we are, and forever will be
    Thy will be done

    Ignorant worms
    White blind and deaf
    And forever doomed
    Groping futility in the sunlight
    And machinations of the truth

    Breaths of pollutants spout from the lips
    Protective measures gas mask welds with flesh
    Adaptation mutation self preservation

    The curse of wisdom
    I see with my eyes plucked out
    I hear with my ears crushed
    Plead for freedom
    Taste the salt (tears for humanity)
    Tears plow furrows down my cheeks
    What have I done
    Now I know that ignorance is bliss

    When I did crawl from the blighted womb
    Childlike spawn of diseased ovum
    Warmth of pain is gone
    My message is clear
    We are like them - you and I are one
    Stunted embryonic forms
    No wisdom unintelligible products of the
    Stillbirth machine

    Why did I ever think I was not
    We are like them
    And I grope blindly in the light
    You and I are one
    Truth sears flesh withers pupaeic form
    I was wrong
    I am nothingness I am dust
    Begone​
