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..."

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"

@ 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 > <

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.

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."

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.

I Want to Be Loved ~ Bon Jovi

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

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

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

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

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

Atreyu - At Least I know I'm A Sinner
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
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
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.

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.

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​
