Halo Effect-Days Of The Lost :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:






Days Of The Lost"

To lean on the impossible
Is the failure of our dreams
The days of independence
Need revolutions to reveal

The fact, the word, the undenied
Take a shot at the lies
The way, the eyes, the nondescript
Give in to muted relief

Fall to the form
Fit into the norm

Now I see you standing all by yourself
There in the silence
I see you're all to yourself
And these are the hours
These are the days
These are the hours
These are the days of the lost

In the end what stands to reason
Like pillars to uphold
Must be a universal
Indivisible line

Fall to the form
Fit into the norm

Now I see you standing all by yourself
There in the silence
I see you're all to yourself
These are the hours
These are the days
These are the hours
These are the days of the lost

Now I see you standing all by yourself
There in the silence
I see you're all to yourself
These are the hours

Now I see you standing all by yourself
There in the silence
Now I see you standing all by yourself
These are the hours
These are the days
These are the hours
Days of the lost​

Marilyn Manson-Suicide Is Painless :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:









Through early morning fog, I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it, if I please

The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it, anyway
The losing card, I'll someday lay
So this is all I have to say

Suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it, if I please

The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it grin

And suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it, if I please

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
"Is it to be, or not to be?"
And I replied, "Why ask me?"

But suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it, if I please
And you can do the same thing, if you please​

Metallica-One :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:







This song took on a different meaning for me when I lost the ability to walk or sit. Twenty years ago I was singing along to this very tune at a live Metallica concert… now I’m the patient in the video. The march of time has been merciless.

”Darkness imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell”

Crowbot-Set You Free :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:





"Set You Free"

It's dark and I'm lost
But I'll keep waiting here beside you
If this pain is the cost
There's no light that's here to follow

What have we done
To become so numb?

I'll give you my faith just so you believe
Run through the darkness so you can see
I'll set you free

It's late and my shadow's been blinded by the moonlight
The taste of the unknown will eat you from the inside

What have we done
To become so numb?

I'll give you my faith just so you believe
Run through the darkness so you can see
I'll set you free

I'll keep falling til I land on you
We can sink together somewhere new

It's dark and I'm lost
And there's no light that's here to follow

What have we done
To become so numb?

I'll give you my faith just so you believe
Run through the darkness so you can see
I'll set you free
I'll set you free​

Terror-Boundless Contempt :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:





"Boundless Contempt"

Time will show the damage you covered
How low you went to deepen the wound
A fatal pressure pushes me under
This boundless contempt, forced too

Blind rage breaks through
A boundless contempt for you
My rage, consumes
A boundless contempt for you

This damage state my thoughts can't recover
Now my whole life a demon inside
The purest hate, there's never been another
Until my last breath I will fight

Blind rage breaks through
A boundless contempt for you
My rage, consumes
A boundless contempt for you

Boundless contempt
Boundless contempt

Driven by vengeance to the bitter end
Suffer the sentence born from my revenge

Driven by vengeance to the bitter end (Boundless contempt)
Suffer the sentence born from my revenge (Boundless contempt)
Driven by vengeance to the bitter end (Boundless contempt)
A fucking disgrace to everything this ever meant
It never ends

Now...
Now, suffer the sentence

It never ends

Silverstein-Don't Wait Up :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:






"Don't Wait Up"

Another day with no light
Feeling alone in a double life
So far away
I levitate
Somewhere between the shadow
And the darkest place
And I start to slip away

Don't wait up now
Heavy heart my heads like ten feet up now
So high above the ground
Don't wait up now
Cause I'm halfway to the clouds
While everything inside of me is crashing down

I covered up my tracks so long ago
Like cracking ice hidden under snow
If I lie to you
Could I believe it too?
I need something to fuck me up
Cause I can't take the truth
So I run and split in two
Thin air in a crowded room

Don't wait up now
Heavy heart my heads like ten feet up now
So high above the ground
Don't wait up now
Cause I'm halfway to the clouds
While everything inside of me is crashing down

I can't hold myself together if I can't feel my hands
I can't make myself get better if I can't understand
I can't tell you where I'm going
I can't tell you when this ends
I need something to hold on to until I leave again
Don't tell me it's my fault
Just catch me when I fall back to earth
Cause my world gets so blurry
And it's too hard to stay here
Fracture and disappear

Don't wait up now
Heavy heart my heads like ten feet up now
So high above the ground

Don't wait up now
Heavy heart my heads like ten feet up now
So high above the ground
Don't wait up now
Cause I'm halfway to the clouds
While everything inside of me is crashing down
It's crashing down​

Silverstein-Misery :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:



When you leave I can see what I used to be
In your car, turned the key but it wouldn't start
I lost a piece of myself
Trapped inside this living hell
I can't escape destiny
My misery loves company
And if I fall apart, torn and scared
Can I find myself?
And if I can't restart, light the dark
Will this ever heal?
No I won't be and I won't feel alone anymore
And I won't let the sea swallow me
I can find my peace in misery
Wide awake, I still dream in a vivid shade
Crimson eyes and a face that glows pale white
It cost me years I never had
I measure pain in milligrams
I pushed away the sympathy
My misery can't cope with me
And if I fall apart, torn and scared
Can I find myself?
And if I can't restart, light the dark
Will this ever heal?
No I won't be and I won't feel alone anymore
And I won't let the sea swallow me
I can find my peace in misery
I've climbed the tallest mountain and I still can't see
I've pushed the greatest boulder, it's rolling back on me
A question with no answer, I'm lost eternally
I try to buy the truth, but you sold the lies to me
And if I fall apart, torn and scared
Can I find myself?
And if I can't restart, light the dark
Will this ever heal?
No I won't be and I won't feel alone anymore
So I'll just let the breeze scatter me
I can find my peace in misery
I can find my peace in misery
I can find my peace in misery

Parkway Drive-Glitch :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:







"Glitch"

I feel a glitch in the cortex
Like a ghost in the shell
Caught the devil playing mind tricks
I feel the dread close in like the walls of a cell

I cannot sleep
I cannot hide
I cannot take
One more night on the dark side of my mind
I close my eyes to sleep, the shadows speak
And they won't stop when I'm awake

Everything they say would seem
Feeds the fear inside of me
Let it feed the fear inside
Help me take this pain away
Sleep is now my enemy
Now it feeds the fear inside of me

The fear inside of me

The fear hit like a shell shock
Body froze like my heart stopped
REM waves got my limbs locked down but my eyes wide open
Sheer terror manifest before me

I cannot sleep
I cannot hide
I cannot take
Living this way on the dark side of my mind
I close my eyes to sleep, the shadows speak
And they won't stop when I'm awake
Everything they say would seem
Feeds the fear inside of me
Let it feed the fear inside
Help me take this pain away
Sleep is now my enemy
Now it feeds the fear inside of me

I close my eyes to sleep (Sleep paralysis)
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me the fuck out

Let me the fuck out

Everything they say would seem
Feeds the fear inside of me
Let it feed the fear inside
Help me take this pain away
Sleep is now my enemy
Now it feeds the fear inside of me
It's the fear inside of me

I cannot sleep
I cannot hide
I cannot take
One more night on the dark side of my mind

Devil Wears Prada-Salt :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:







"Salt"

I can never process
What I'm feeling in my bones
Like a sickness that I can't diagnose

Some days I think I'm afraid of my shadow
I show up to fight at all the wrong battles
And I don't think my mind will be right 'til I

Pour the salt into the wound
Let the rain wash over you
If everything I said was true
Then why am I paralyzed?

Watch the grass blow in the wind for the hell of it
And sometimes I get so caught up that I forget

That all of our words only mean what's behind them
You can't throw gasoline on a fire
And say you tried to put it out

Pour the salt into the wound
Let the rain wash over you
If everything I said was true
Then why am I?

Hiding from the blinding lights
I never had an alibi
If everything I said was true
Then why am I?
Why am I still paralyzed?

Why am I still paralyzed?

Step back as the ashes rise
Embers up toward the sky
With all the things that I can't find

Pour the salt into the wound
Let the rain wash over you
If everything I said was true
Then why am I?

Hiding from the blinding lights
I never had an alibi
If everything I said was true
Then why am I?
Why am I still paralyzed?
Still paralyzed

Falling In Reverse-Voices In My Head :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:









The voices in my head
keep on telling me to pray
Cuz’ I’m spinning like a
carousel circling the drain
Hit the bottom of the bottle
I don’t wanna feel the pain
but that is all I got for now
I don’t wanna talk about it
The voices in my head
Keep on begging me to stay
If I pull the trigger now
Then the demons go away
and I know my time is coming
So there ain’t no time to waste
So that is all I got for now
I don’t wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep telling me to choose a side
heaven or hell like it’s do or die
I’m a sad boy you know better
Please don’t make this last forever
The voices in my head
Keep telling me I’m not okay
Cause it’s feeling like a hurricane in my brain
Dark clouds dark skies bad weather
Please don’t make this last forever

(Eye E eye)
The voices in my head
keep telling me I’m gonna
(Die)
and I don’t wanna talk
about the drama, I’m trauma-
(tized)
they keep tellin me I’m fine
We both know that’s a fuckin
(Lie)
I’m losing my mind but
I don’t wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep giving me the worst advice
Kamikaze crash like a suicide
I’m a lost boy you know better
Please don’t make this last forever
the voices in my head
keep telling me I’m insane
and maybe I’m a little bit
That won’t change
Dark clouds dark skies bad weather
Please don’t make this last forever

The voices in my head
keep telling me I’m cursed
I’m paranoid I don’t wanna make it any worse
We’re all gonna die but first things first
Imma take the world with me
when they put me in the dirt

Swingin' to the left and swingin' to the right
