#Lyrics Lithium-Nirvana

I’m so happy because today
I’ve found my friends
They’re in my head
I’m so ugly, but that’s okay, ’cause so are you
We’ve broken our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
And I’m not scared
Light my candles in a daze
‘Cause I’ve found god
Hey, hey, hey
I’m so lonely but that’s okay I shaved my head
And I’m not sad
And just maybe I’m to blame for all I’ve heard
But I’m not sure
I’m so excited, I can’t wait to meet you there
But I don’t care
I’m so horny but that’s okay
My will is good
Hey, hey, hey
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
I’m so happy ’cause today
I’ve found my friends,
They’re in my head
I’m so ugly, that’s okay, ’cause so are you,
Broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care,
And I’m not scared
Light my candles in a daze
‘Cause I’ve found god
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
I like it, I’m not gonna crack
I miss you, I’m not gonna crack
I love you, I’m not gonna crack
I killed you, I’m not gonna crack
This is a song pretty much about a lot of self loathing….I’m so ugly thats ok cause so are you…. As someone who has a very low amount of self esteem…it is kind of relating to me….
Cobain once said that this is a song that takes the voice of a man who is on the verge of killing himself… when you hear that…it gives the song a whole new outlook….
I am going to be honest….I love Nirvana. They were the mascot…the leader..the spokesman of the angst era.. I loved it. And I loved Cobain… Now here is where it gets a little sad… I was a toddler when Cobain died….So I experienced all of the glory that is Nirvana…after Cobain died. I vaguely remember watching MTV with my brothers when Smells Like Teen Spirit came on.. but that was years ago.
I could listen to a number of Nirvana songs over and over and over and over… Cobain was very talented.

#Lyrics Believer-Imagine Dragons


First things first

I’ma say all the words inside my head
I’m fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh ooh
The way that things have been, oh ooh
Second thing 
Second, don’t you tell me what you think that I can be
I’m the one at the sail, I’m the master of my sea, oh ooh
The master of my sea, oh ooh

I was broken from a young age
Taking my sulking to the masses
Write down my poems for the few
That looked at me took to me, shook to me, feeling me
Singing from heart ache from the pain
Take up my message from the veins
Speaking my lesson from the brain
Seeing the beauty through the

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

Third things third
Send a prayer to the ones up above
All the hate that you’ve heard has turned your spirit to a dove, oh ooh
Your spirit up above, oh ooh

I was choking in the crowd
Living my brain up in the cloud
Falling like ashes to the ground
Hoping my feelings, they would drown
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing
Inhibited, limited
‘Til it broke up and it rained down
It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you built me up, believer, believer
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

Last things last
By the grace of the fire and the flames
You’re the face of the future, the blood in my veins, oh ooh
The blood in my veins, oh ooh
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing
Inhibited, limited
‘Til it broke up and it rained down
It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you built me up, believer, believer
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

 

This is a song about dealing with emotional problems. It is about rising above that and finding a place of perspective where pain can become strength… As someone with anxiety its a song that hits home when I just want to try to find a song that expresses my need to find peace.

#Lyrics Never Have To Say Goodbye-Papa Roach

‘Cause when you took your last breath
I was high, I was running away
You always call me on the phone
But I never pick up
I never wanted you to know
I was running out of love
You didn’t walk out, you didn’t give up on me

So even if you’re coming out
I’m not giving up on you
We never have to say goodbye
‘Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it’s true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You’re ripping every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
I didn’t have the strength that I needed at the end of the day
‘Cause I was popping every pill
The only one that I was fooling was me
You always loved me when I couldn’t even love myself
No, you never turned away when I was begging for help
I should’ve said thanks
For never given up on me
So even if you’re coming out
I’m not giving up on you
We never have to say goodbye
‘Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it’s true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You’re ripping every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
I can hear your voice when I walk through the pain
Show me how to live
Show me that I can change
I can feel you catch me when I fall away
We never have to say goodbye
‘Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it’s true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You’re ripping every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
We never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
This is a song about not getting to say your ‘peace’ when someone passes away… it is a very strong song for me personally. Considering I have had a few people pass away that I never got to say goodbye. Two of my cousins…..my grandmother. and most recently my father. It is kind of hard knowing that there was so much that you wanted to say to them and you’ll never get the chance to. Its nice that there are songs like these that allow us to express the way we feel.

#Lyrics Last Resort-Papa Roach

 

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
This is my last resort
Cut my life into pieces
I’ve reached my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding?
Would it be wrong?, would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And I’m contemplating suicide
‘Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
I never realized I was spread too thin
Till it was too late
And I was empty within
Hungry!
Feeding on chaos
And living in sin
Downward spiral where do I begin?
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself
And no love for another.
Searching to find a love up on a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils
‘Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Nothing’s alright
Nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way
Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Would it be wrong?
Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And I’m contemplating suicide
‘Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Nothing’s alright
Nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way
Can’t go on
Living this way
Nothing’s alright
This song takes the perspective of someone who feels frustrated and confused to the point that suicide seems like a valid option…..It is never an option. It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem… That’s something I have heard others say… Suicide doesn’t solve anything. It doesn’t stop the pain. It just transfers that pain to those left behind.
This is a song that helped many people express their darkest thoughts and find a way to overcome their struggles.
I know personally…this is a song that I always find myself coming back to. When I feel like I am at my lowest…when I feel at my worst… this song is something that just allows you to scream. To yell. To just let go of everything. It is a song that you can get lost in.

#Lyrics Falling Apart-Papa Roach

I’ll follow you out of the dark.
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
All that I see, is the wickedness around me.
I refuse to believe, the apocalypse inside of me.
I can’t even trust myself.
I’m burning in my skin.
Standing at the gates of hell, but nobody will let me in.
I’ll follow you out of the dark.
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
I’ll follow you, with all of my heart.
I’m tired of my ways cause I keep falling and falling apart!
I stand here again, forsaken in a place 
That feels like I can never win. 
I’m reaching for a saving grace. 
I can’t even trust no one. 
I need to rise above. 
I don’t think I’m good enough, to feel your perfect love.
I’ll follow you out of the dark!
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
I’ll follow you, with all of my heart!
I’m tired of my ways cause I keep falling and falling apart!
I’m falling and falling apart.
I’m falling and falling apart.
I’m falling apart.
Your love’s a fire, it’s alive and I’m burning in it.
I’m in the ashes of mercy; I’m caught in it.
I fall hard and you carry me away.
I fall part so you can set me free.
Your love’s a fire, it’s alive and I’m burning in it.
I’m in the ashes of mercy; I’m caught in it.
I fall hard and you carry me.
I fall apart so you can set me free.
I follow you out of the dark! 
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
I’ll follow you with all of my heart!
I’m tired of my ways, cause I keep falling and falling apart!
I’m falling and falling apart!
Without you I’m falling apart!
I’m falling and falling apart.
Tobin Esperance (I hope I spelled that correctly) explained that this song is about trying to find something to hold on to, that keeps you strong.
I think this is song is such a great song because you can relate to it. Even if you don’t have anxiety or a mental illness. But even more so if you do. It is important if you find that one thing that makes you want to live another day.
I know people always say that you shouldn’t live for anything other than yourself if you’re suicidal. But I say screw that. You live for anything that keeps you holding on. If you have a dog/cat keep living for them. You have a fantasy league. Keep living for that. Keep fighting. Keep holding on.

#Lyrics Why-Rascal Flatts

You must’ve a been in a place so dark, couldn’t feel the light
Reachin’ for you through that stormy cloud
Now here we are gathered in our little home town
This can’t be the way you meant to draw a crowd

Oh why, that’s what I keep askin’
Was there anything I could have said or done
Oh I, had no clue you were masking a troubled soul, God only knows
What went wrong, and why you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old
Roundin’ third to score that winning run
You always played with passion no matter what the game
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

Oh why, that’s what I keep askin’
Was there anything I could have said or done
Oh I, had no clue you were masking a troubled soul, God only knows
What went wrong, and why you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Now the oak trees are swayin’ in the early autumn breeze
The golden sun is shining on my face
The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing
This old world really ain’t that bad a place

Oh why there’s no comprehending
And who am I to try to judge or explain
Oh, but I do have one burning question
Who told you life wasn’t worth the fight
They were wrong
They lied
And now you’re gone
And we cried

‘Cause It’s not like you, to walk away in the middle of a song

Your beautiful song
Your absolutely beautiful song

I’ve never really been a fan of country music….except for Rascal Flatts. I am not sure what it is about this band but they are my heart of country.

This song, in particular, is a very sad song. It is about suicide. It is about those who are left behind. I once read a quote that suicide doesn’t end pain, it just transfer it to those left behind.

Like I have said before. I have people in my life who have either threatened suicide before or have suicidal tendencies.  It is painful to see them that way. To hear them talk that way. And If I ever lost them…I would be devastated.

#Lyrics Broken Home-Papa Roach

Broken home, all alone
Broken home, all alone
I can’t seem to fight these feelings
I’m caught in the middle of this
And my wounds are not healing
I’m stuck in between my parents
I wish I had someone to talk to
Someone I could confide in
I just want to know the truth
I just want to know the truth
Want to know the truth!
Broken home
All alone
I know my mother loves me
But does my father even care?
If I’m sad or angry
You were never ever there
When I needed you
I hope you regret what you did
I think I know the truth
Your father did the same to you
Did the same to you!
I’m crying day and night now
What is wrong with me?
I cannot fight now
I feel like a weak link
Crying day and night now
What is wrong with me?
I cannot fight now
I feel like a weak link
(Push it back inside) 4X
A weak link
Broken home, all alone
It feels bad to be alone
Crying by yourself living in a broken home
How could I tell it?
So all y’all could feel it
Depression strikes hard just like my old earth would tell it
To me, her son, she told me I’m the one
Pain bottled up, ’bout to blow like a gun
Stories that I tell
Are nonfiction
And you can’t take it back ’cause it’s already done
BROKEN HOME! BROKEN HOOOOME!
Can’t seem to fight these feelings
Caught in the middle of this
My wounds are not healing
Stuck in between my parents
BROKEN HOME! BROKEN HOOOOME!
This song is about divorce. Although my parents never got divorced, they were separated for pretty much all of my life, until the day my dad passed away. Since I never really lived with my father, that I can remember I know I did when I was a baby, I technically come from a broken home.
What made things worse was the fact that the constant male figures in my life typically left. My oldest brother always left. He won’t say he did. He ran away when he was 16 and from then on he was only around every couple of years. It is actually very surprising that he’s been in the same state since 2011.
It was a broken home, but it was my home. I have one brother who sees the positive and one that see only negative. I’m kind of in between.
