A pill to make you dumb
A pill to make you anybody else"~Marilyn Manson; Coma White

Swimming through the ashes of another life

From my blasphemy in my wasteland"~ Shinedown; Save Me

I can't destroy what isn't there"~ Slipknot; Snuff

    I'm sorry that you never made it.

  • My favorite is 'One More Girl'

    I took off my iron smile, babe,
    'cause I found it weighed me down
    Tomorrow when the world wakes up
    I'll be in another town

    You don't know what you want
    At this moment could be me
    You move your hand across my knee
    Turn me into some novelty

    I guess I'm One more girl on a stage
    Just one more ass that got stuffed in some jeans
    And its one more day that you don't find true love
    Because you don't know what it means

    Did you ever take the time to
    Think about who I might be
    Where I've been, what I'm thinkin'
    Who I love, what I've seen

    One more car out on the road there
    You might pass on your way home
    Someone's sister, someone's wife or
    Just some bitch who's probably got no life

    I guess I'm One more girl on a stage
    Just one more ass that got stuffed in some jeans
    And its one more day that you don't find true love
    Because you don't know what it means

    One day we'll be a pile of ashes
    For the rest of time it passes
    So take your hand off my knee
    Do you know what it means

    I guess I'm One more girl on a stage
    Just one more ass that got stuffed in some jeans
    And its one more day that you don't find true love
    Because you don't know what it means

  • "There's method in my madness
    There's no logic in your sadness
    You don't gain a single thing from misery
    Take it from me"

    "They were born with the fate
    of dying for someone -- a human baby
    when will they find out?"

    "In the eye of the storm, you'll see a lonely dove
    it's experience of survival that's the key
    to the gravity of love"

    "Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom
    failed in becoming a god"

    I could continue.. :3

  • OP is 3edgy5me

    One of my favorite sung lyrics is:

    "Keep quiet
    Nothing comes as easy as you
    Can I lay in your bed all day
    I'll be your best kept secret and your biggest mistake
    The hand behind this pen relieves a failure everyday"

    -Fall Out Boy - Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner

  • "Despite all my rage I am still a rat in a cage" bullet with butterfly wings by the smashing pumpkins

    "We were the broken
    We were the beaten
    I was once like you
    Now i push myself to the treshold
    Because I am stronger
    Because I believe" to the threshold by hatebreed

    "You are just a speck of sand in an endless desert of agony" horrors of self by hatebreed

    "When the odds where stacked against me
    I needed someone by my side
    And wheb the world left no place for me
    I needed someone by my side
    And when the skies crashed down upon me
    I looked for someone by my side
    You were there when no one else was
    You showed me whatg is born does not always die


    • Those lyrics sums up my life and I do not complete a workout without listenning to those songs.

      They help me to an extent that people can hardly know.

      I'm an obsessive person and I can easely listen one of those songs for hours litteraly

  • "So I'll smile and laugh 'til my mouth is bloody. I just wish I knew, how to connect with somebody"-Sunshine by Sworn In "Hate, hate ain't enough to describe me. Scream, somewhere between screaming and crying. I'm not supposed to be here. I'm not supposed to be.."-Disasterpiece by Slipknot "I like to think I'm insane, and that's not the worse part, 'cause if I've lost my fucking mind I'll surely lose my heart. I'd be a liar if I said I want to be this way. But it's a world full of liars, I'm just playing the game."-Hypocrisy by Sworn In

  • "How you gonna up and leave like that? when i gave you all i had.
    I gave you the real me told you all my feelings.
    Now you gonna turn around and front like you dont feel me.
    I put that on my life that i ain't seen this coming,
    Opened up my heart i shoulda never let you come in,
    But i wish you well though,
    thats all i could tell you,
    Maybe in your next life you'll find everything you wanted

    I never thought that loving you would cause me pain,
    I'll never put a man before myself again,
    you shoulda told me that you was uncertain, this ain't what i want and this ain't working." ~ How you gonna tyrese remake
