Breaking Benjamin - Dear Agony
31 plays

Been feeling awfully bummed/anxiety ridden/unhappy over the last week or so.

Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin

I have nothing left to give

I have found the perfect end

You were made to make it hurt

Disappear into the dirt

Carry me to heaven’s arms

Light the way and let me go

Take the time to take my breath

I will end where I began

And I will find the enemy within

Because I can feel it crawl beneath my skin

Dear agony

Just let go of me

Suffer slowly

Is this the way it’s gotta be?

Dear agony

Suddenly the lights go out

Let forever drag me down

I will fight for one last breath

I will fight until the end

And I will find the enemy within

Because I can feel it crawl beneath my skin

Dear agony

Just let go of me

Suffer slowly

Is this the way it’s got to be?

Don’t bury me

Faceless enemy

I’m so sorry

Is this the way it’s gotta be?

Dear agony

Leave me alone

God let me go

I’m blue and cold

Black sky will burn

Love pull me down

Hate lift me up

Just turn around

There’s nothing left

Somewhere far beyond this world

I feel nothing anymore

Dear agony

Just let go of me

Suffer slowly

Is this the way it’s got to be?

Don’t bury me

Faceless enemy

I’m so sorry

Is this the way it’s gotta be?

Dear agony

I feel nothing anymore

Modest Mouse - The View
10 plays

The View by Modest Mouse.

Your gun went off

Well, you shot off your mouth

And look where it got you

My mouth runs on too

Shouts from both sides

"Well, we’ve got the land

But they’ve got the view”

Well, now here’s the clue

Life, it rents us

And yeah, I hope it put plenty on you

Well, I hope mine did too

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Then I feel pretty blissfully

Your gun went off

Well, you shot off your mouth

And look where it got you

My mouth runs on too

Shouts from both sides

"Well, we’ve got the land

But they’ve got the view”

Well, now here’s the clue

We are fixed right where we stand

Life, it rents us

And yeah, I hope it put plenty on you

Well, I hope mine did too

We are fixed right where we are

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Well, I feel pretty blissfully

For every invention made how much time did we save?

We’re not much farther than we were in the cave

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Well, I feel pretty blissfully

If life’s not beautiful without the pain

Well, I’d just rather never ever even see beauty again

Well, as life gets longer, awful feels softer

And it feels pretty soft to me

For every good deed done there is a crime committed

We are fixed

For every step ahead we could have just been seated

We are fixed

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Well, I feel pretty blissfully

We are fixed, we are fixed

We are fixed right where we stand

Weezer - Trainwrecks
130 plays

Trainwrecks by Weezer.

We sleep all day and rock the night

We just get up to start another fight

We kiss and then we bite

We are trainwrecks

You don’t keep house and I’m a slob

You’re freakin’ out cause I can’t keep a job

We don’t update our blogs

We are trainwrecks

People love to tell us what to do

That’s just cause they’re jealous of me and you

We’re diggin’ through the couch for cash

We’re takin’ cabs cause both our cars are trashed

But we’re still kickin’ ass

We are trainwrecks, trainwrecks

We’re still kickin’ ass

We are trainwrecks

We think it’s uncool to be on time

Moochin’ off our friends is not a federal crime

Someday we’ll cut our critics down to size

And crash a Diddy party in disguise

We fall but then we rise

We are trainwrecks, trainwrecks

That’s the story of our lives

We are trainwrecks, trainwrecks

That’s the story of our lives

We are trainwrecks

Weezer is awesome.  Just replace every “we” in the song with an “I” and the lyrics sum me up pretty well… "I’m still kickin’ ass/I’m a trainwreck…"

Tantric - Down & Out
0 plays

Down & Out by Tantric.

I’m coming up for air so I can

Check myself again and I stand

Proven to the man but sheltered

Confidence we tend to shelf and

Unexpected hunger drives me

Just shut up and stand beside me

I don’t need your understanding

I don’t need to change a damn thing

And though I’m used to have you here

It doesn’t change the man I was

When you found me

And there was no one else around me, yeah

Just turn the page and watch me grow

There’s so many things that you don’t know about my soul

Live and die but this will not get old

Just when you think that you’re down and out

Don’t preconceive what I’m all about

Look for a reason that you have to start

Acting like a friend that you are not

And when you think that we played it out

We come from the bottom and knock it out

Look for a reason that you have to start

Acting like a friend but you are not, yeah

Nothing in between to fall through

I’m being myself, who are you?

You stand above and look down

You’re just a plagiaristic clown

You suck the life out of me

You keep track of the pity

And when this well becomes dry

You’ll shed a tear for another lie

And though I’m used to have you here

It doesn’t change the man I was

When you found me

And there was no one else around me, yeah

Just turn the page and watch me grow

There’s so many things that you don’t know about my soul

Live and die but this will not get old

Just when you think that you’re down and out

Don’t preconceive what I’m all about

Look for a reason that you have to start

Acting like a friend that you are not

And when you think that we played it out

We come from the bottom and knock it out

Look for a reason that you have to start

Acting like a friend but you are not, yeah

And though I’m used to have you here

It doesn’t change the man I was

When you found me

And there was no one else around me

Yeah, yeah, ooohhhhhh

Just when you think that you’re down and out

Don’t preconceive what I’m all about

Look for a reason that you have to start

Acting like a friend that you are not

And when you think that we played it out

We come from the bottom and knock it out

Look for a reason that you have to start

Acting like a friend but you are not, yeah

This is another one of those songs that improves as volume increases.  :)

Infected Mushroom - Forgive Me
30 plays

Forgive Me by Infected Mushroom.

Can you tell me a story that I don’t know?

Can you show me a picture that I haven’t seen before?

Can you do one thing for me?

Just let me go

Can you tell me a story that I don’t know?

Can you show me a picture that I haven’t seen before?

Can you do one thing for me?

Just let me go (x3)

Can you give me a reason why to stay behind?

Can you say it to my face that I’m not wasting all my time?

Can you do one thing for me?

Just let me go

Can you see the way I’m having and the story that is ending?

Can I find a place to be peace and quiet endlessly?

Can you show me one more time just where to go?

Forgive me

For leaving you alone

Forgive me

For not saying any more

Forgive me

For leaving you alone

Forgive me

For not waiting any more (x3)

Awesome music, awesome lyrics, & full of win.  <3 Infected Mushroom.

OK Go - White Knuckles
60 plays

White Knuckles by OK Go.

You’ll never get that taste

Out of your mouth

You’ll never get the paw prints

Out of the hen house now

And you can’t go back

Same way you came

Round all the pieces up

But they just don’t fit the same

White knuckes

Maybe it’s not so bad

So let your hair down now

White knuckles

Yeah, maybe it’s not so bad

Oh, go ahead and let it down

So come and let it all out

Let it bleed

Did you get what you want?

Did you get what you need?

Behind the lines

Behind the walls

Tell me ‘bout the bet you made

Was it that bad after all?

White knuckles

Yeah, maybe it’s not so bad

So let your hair down now

White knuckles

Oh, maybe it’s not so bad

Just let it all come down now

So just how far

Is far enough?

Everybody needs to sleep at night

Everybody needs a crutch

But couldn’t good

Be good enough?

'Cause nothing ever dosen't change

But nothing changes much

Yeah, maybe it’s not so bad

So let your hair down now

White knuckles

Oh, maybe it’s not so bad

Just let it all come down now

Yeah, maybe it’s not so bad

Just let your hair come down now

Oh, maybe it’s not so bad

Just let it all come down

I had totally forgotten how much I like OK Go.  This song is my favorite track on Of the Blue Colour of the Sky.  Sometimes you just need someone to tell you to relax (even if it is on a CD and they’re not speaking directly to you).   (:

Cock Sparrer - I've Got Your Number
60 plays

I’ve Got Your Number by Cock Sparrer.

It can’t be right what I’m reading here

No one believes in all this stuff no more

Our ideas don’t see eye to eye

You get your press with a pocketful of lies

Telling everybody every word is true

One day soon they’re gonna see through you

——————————

[chorus]»»  I’ve got your number

You can fool some people some part of the time

I’ve got your number

I aint ever gonna toe that particular partyline

——————————

There’ll be some people gonna back you up

But don’t look here for moral support

Don’t you ask no favors from me

I don’t believe in charity

Telling everybody you’re wonderful

What are you gonna do when when there’s no one left to tell it to

[chorus]

You think you’re so special

But you’re only fooling

Tell your lies to anyone but me

Cause I can

See through you

[chorus 3x]

When I was watching one of the Jackass movies (It was the third one, I think) I heard this song and decided that I loved it.  The music’s pretty great and the lyrics are AWESOME.  (I also love how you can totally hear his accent while he’s singing.)

Amy Winehouse - Back To Black
40 plays

Back to Black by Amy Winehouse.

"He left no time to regret, kept his dick wet

With his same old safe bet

Me and my head high and my tears dry

Get on without my guy

You went back to what you knew so far removed

From all that we went through

And I tread a troubled track, my odds are stacked

I’ll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words

I died a hundred times

You go back to her

And I go back to, I go back to us

I love you much, it’s not enough

You love blow and I love puff

And life is like a pipe

And I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside…”

I know there are more lyrics to this song.  The above it just a part of the song that I especially like.
