#define SELF (insert lyrics here)

Curious, do you people ever get the impression that the lyrics of a song -really- define what you yourself are all about? I've been playing this song nonstop for about 2 days now... And I haven't grown bored of it since...


Quote:
Lyrics from VNVNation - Joy

Have I no control? Is my soul not mine?
Am I not just man? Destiny defined?
Never to be ruled nor held to heel.
Not heaven or hell just the land between.

Am I not man, does my heart not bleed?

No Lord, no God, no hate, no pity, no pain, just ME.

Comprehend and countermand.

Synchronous guidance. I choose my way.
Never to be ruled nor held to heel.
Not heaven or hell.

Just the land between.

And am I not man?

So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why am I lone? And why do I feel?
That I carry a sword through a battle field?

So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why do I fight and why do I feel?
That I carry a sword, that I carry a sword?

Like the path to heaven or the road to hell,
Our choice is our own consequences bind.
We are the kings of wisdom, the fools as well.
We are the gods to many, we are humble men.

We who build great works just to break them down.

We who make our rules so we never fail.

So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why am I lone and why do I feel?
That I carry a sword through a battle field?

So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why do I fight and why do I feel?
That I carry a sword, that a carry a sword?

I've always felt this song is me through and through, absoloutely love it. Always cheers me up for some reason.


No Rain - Blind Melon.

All I can say is that my life
is pretty plain
I like watching the puddles
gather rain

And all I can do is just pour
some tea for two
And speak my point of view
But it's not same, it's not same

I just want someone to say
to me
I'll always be there when u wake
Ya know know i'd like to keep my cheeks
Dry today
So stay with me and i'll have
it made

And I don't understand why I
Sleep all day
And I start to complain that
Theres no rain
And all I can do is read a book
To stay awake
It rips my life away, but its a
Great escape...escape...escape

All I can say is that my life is
Pretty plain
Ya don't see my point of view
Ya think that i'm insane
It's not same...it's not same

I just want someone to say to me
I'll always be there when you wake
Ya know i'd like to keep my cheeks
Dry today
So stay with me and i'll have
It made.

Still this one:

Fell On Black Days-Soundgarden
Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded
And now I'm doing time
Cause I fell on black days

Whomsoever I've cured I've sickened now
Whomsoever I've cradled I've put you down
I'm a search light soul they say
But I can't see it in the night
I'm only faking when I get it right
Cause I fell on black days
How would I know
That this could be my fate

So what you wanted to see good has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours has made it mine
So don't you lock up something that you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying
No, not tying

I sure don't mind a change
But I fell on black days
How would I know
That this could be my fate

STOP!
I wanna go home,
take off this uniform and leave the show.
But im waiting in this cell because i have to know.
have i been guilty all this time?

Pink Floyd... the Wall. Modern Art Masterpiece. It describes the isolation i been feeling since my early years, and then theres times in my life when a song from the album takes on more meaning and more meaning.

And it changes all the time, but always the album the Wall.

Last year when i was all depressive and goth and isolationist it was this bit.

I dont need no arms around me,
i dont need no drugs to calm me.
I have seen the writing on the wall.
Dont think i need anything at all.
No dont think i need anything at all,
all in all it was all just bricks in the wall.


Roger Waters is my GOD!

I love that song aet...and pink floyd does kick butt

Mary, Mary- Chumbawamba

Mary, Mary
No virgin me
For I have sinned
I sold my soul
For sex and gin
Go call a priest
All meek and mild
And tell him, "Mary
Is no more a child."

It's raining stones
It's raining bile
From the luxury
Of your denial
So I don't deny
I don't make do
I'll press alarms
Place bets on truth

I'm so up and down
And I love what's not allowed
I was lost, now I see:
And now I'm growing old disgracefully

Whatever happened to Mary?

I'll spit on floors
And do more drugs
Burn every bill
Get drunk on love
Wear next to nothing
In the pouring rain
Be a bad example
And do it all again

I'll be uncareful
I'll cause such scenes
And I'll never talk
Of used-to-be's
Tattoo my face
I won't go grey
Be a dancing queen
I'm growing old disgracefully

I'm so up and down
And I love what's not allowed
I was lost, now I see:
And now I'm growing old disgracefully

Whatever happened to Mary?

Mary, Mary
Quite contrary

I had a song I couldn't stop listening to, its not a very good song but then I just sort of listened to it because I figured it describes how I feel... Its begining to annoy me now though...lol

The Verve
Bittersweet symphony


'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Your a slave to money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the things meet yeah

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can't change
I can't char been down
Ever been down
That you've ever been down
That you've ever been down

Oh this one too

Yeah this one too, but Im not really sick of this song...

Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here

So so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a vail?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway
You will never understand it cuz it happens too fast
And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass
It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright
It's so groovy, it's outta sight
You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
But it makes no difference cuz it knocks you off your feet

You want it all but you can't have it

It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor
So you lay down on it and you do it some more
You've got to share it, so you dare it
Then you bare it and you tear it

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win
It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain
It's sad it happened and it's a shame

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

What is it?
It's it

What is it?
It is it

What is it?
It is it

What is it?

What is it?

What is it?

You want it all, but you can't have it.
It's in your face, but you can't grab it...

- Faith No More, "Epic"

dunno, I guess this one fits... besides I like this song a whole lot.

~Replica~
By Sonata Arctica


I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind
your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, see the
meaning of it all. Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of
what I used to be. It's easier if you don't see me
standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit
here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steal, the kind them bullets
cannot see

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean, new life to fill
the hole in me. I had no name, last December, Christmas
Eve I can't remember. I was in a constant pain, I saw
your shadow in a rain. I painted all your pigeons red,
I wish I had stayed home instead.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over...

Raising from the place I've been, and trying to keep
my home base clean. Now I'm here and won't go back believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream, I'm floating in a
silent dream. No-one placing blame on me
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

~John Lennon~Working Class Hero~

As soon as your born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so great you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is somthing to be
A working class hero is somthing to be
They hurt you at home
And they hit you at school
They hate you if your clever
And they dispise a fool
Till your so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is somthing to be
A working class hero is somthing to be
They've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function your so full of fear
A working class hero is somthing to be
A working class hero is somthing to be
Keep your doped up religoin
And sex and t.v.
And they think your so clever and classless and free
But your still fucking peasants as far as they can see
A working class hero is somthing to be
A working class hero is somthing to be
Theres room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is somthing to be
A working class hero is somthing to be

Hmm. I wonder if this will be moved . . .

For me personally there is no one song that identifies me.
There are quite a few I identify with however:

ICP: Nothings left

Tool: Aenime

ICP: Halls of illusions

NIN: Mr Self Destruct

In Flames: Jester script transfigured

NIN: Memorabilia (Originally by Soft Cell)

ICP: Crystal Ball

Tool: Third eye

In flames: Everything counts (Originally by Depeche Mode)

The Smashing Pumkins: In the arms of sleep

ICP/Twiztid: All I ever wanted

Akira: Theme from Instrumental (DAAAAAA DAAAAAA . . . DAAAAA DAAAAAA DA DA)

Thats not all, but all that I care to think of now.
The lyrics for these can be found if you care to look: ICP lyrics {www.realjuggalos.com} Others: {www.Darklyrics.com}

This is Hell Were In: Deicide


Racing with death, life in a mess
Time growing shorter with every regret
Efforts subceeding, I'm losing restrain
Insincere promise I've broken again
Nothing can touch me for once I am dead
Exclude the body, the spirit is left
I have no problem in coping with life
It is this world that condemns me to die

THIS IS HELL WE'RE IN
Enduring in pain
IN THIS HELL WE'RE IN
I will not remain
THIS IS HELL WE'RE IN
Forbidden to want
FROM THIS HELL WE'RE IN
I wish to move on

Wrapped in self doubt enmeshed in the brain
Darkest depression succumbing again
Waiting the hour, the string snaps inside
Length of a second to take my own life
So it is promised I do not believe
Anything better than what I have seen
Out of this body, I wait for this day
In this hell were in, entangled in pain

Balance upset into leaning on death
Simplified option to life's little test
Constantly guarding against its attack
Why were we put here to feel its effect
Violent pressure has tired my tries
It is my wish that it's soon that I die
Hanging by threads to the realms of the sane
It is this world that has made me this way


this is the closest song i know of to describe the way i view my life

In the End - Linkin Park

Some times I get no where no matter how hard I try, then I feel it wasn't even worth it...I feel this song sums it up best.

It starts with...

One thing I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme
to explain in due time...

All I know...

Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away...

Its so unreal...

I didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying so hard I didn't even know
I wasted it all...

Just to watch you go...

I kept everything inside
And even though I tried
It all fell apart
What it meant to me
Will eventually be a memory
Of a time...

I tried so hard and got so far
In the end it doesn't even matter
I had to fall to lose it all
But in the end it doesn't even matter

One thing
I don't know why doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme to remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the was you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so far
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognise me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all coes back to me (in the end)
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I

Chorus

I've put my trust in you...
Pushed as far as I can go...
For all this there's only one thing you should know...
I've put my trust in you...pushed as far as I can go...
For all this there's only one thing you should know...

I tried so hard and got so far
In the end it doesn't even matter
I had to fall to lose it all
But in the end it doesn't even matter.............




I also love the piano work in the opening and closing of the track.
