• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Expose-End Of The World đź’”







Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know it's the end of the world
'Cause you don't love me anymore?

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when I lost your love

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, no, I just can't understand
How life goes on the way it does

SPOKEN:
Why does my heart go on beating?
(Why does my heart beat?)
SPOKEN:
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
(Why do I cry?)
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when you said goodbye

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, no, I just can't understand
How life goes on the way it does

Why does my heart go on beating?
Oh, why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when you said
Oh, it ended when you said
It ended when you said goodbye

Justin Currie-Always The Last To Know đź’”








So you're in love with someone else
Someone who burns within your soul
And it looks like I am the last to know
I hear you've never felt so alive
So much desire beyond control
And as usual I am the last to know

The last to know how you're feeling
The last to know where you are
The last to know if you're happy now
Or if he's treating you like I treated you
Or if he's cruel
I'll be the last to know

We spent summers up beyond the bay
And you said these are such perfect days
That if the bomb drops baby
I wanna be the last to know
But now you're living up behind the hill
And though we share the same city and feel the same sun
When your winter comes
I'll be the last to know

Always the last to know how you're feeling
The last to know where you are
The last to know if you're happy now
Or if he's pleaded with you
Like I pleaded with you if you go
Don't let me be the last to know
Don't let me be the last to know

Creation's gone crazy
The TV's gone mad
Now you're the only sane thing that I've had

Always the last to know how you're feeling
The last to know where you are
The last to know if you're happy now
Or if he's cheated on you
Like I cheated on you, oh
You were the last to know
You were the last to know
Don't let me be the last to know

Oh, Oh, Oh.

Don't let me be the last to know

No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No.​

Rihanna-Lift Me Up :heart::hug::heart::hug::heart:










Lift me up
Hold me down
Keep me close
Safe and sound

Burning in a hopeless dream
Hold me when you go to sleep
Keep me in the warmth of your love
When you depart keep me safe
Safe and sound

Lift me up
Hold me down
Keep me close
Safe and sound

Drowning in an endless sea
Take some time and stay with me
Keep me in the strength of your arms
Keep me safe
Safe and sound

Lift me up
Hold me down (Hold me down)
Keep me safe (Keep me close)
Safe and sound (Safe and sound)

Burning in a hopeless dream
Hold me when you go to sleep
Keep me safe
We need light
We need love

Lift me up (Lift me up, in your arms)
Hold me down (I need love, I need love, I need love)
Keep me close (Hold me, hold me)
Safe and sound (Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me)
Lift me up (Hold me, hold me)
Hold me down (Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me)
Keep me safe
We need light
We need love​

The Widow Maker by Carpenter Brut. I thought the lyrics were quite fitting for a song to listen to while drawing one’s final breath before loss of consciousness:

Choose the pill
Choose the pill
It's time to party, choose the pill
Your world ignites

You, when you fall
They will follow
To the grave
See you on the dark side

No Mercy-Where Do You Go :heart:









Where do you go, my lovely?
Where do you go?
I wanna know, my lovely
I wanna know

Where do you go?
I wanna know
Where do you go?

I wanna know

Where do you, where do you go?
Where do you, where do you go?

You leave without a word, no message, no number
And now my head is pounding like rolling thunder
You left me with a heartache deep inside
Girl, you should see me cry all night, and I wonder

Everybody says, what a shame!, what is wrong!
They don't like the game we play
Heard you're hanging 'round every night until dawn
I'm waiting for you night and day

Where do you go, my lovely?
Where do you go?
I wanna know, my lovely
I wanna know

Where do you go?
I wanna know
Where do you go?

I wanna know

You gotta break the silence, don't keep me waiting
Just like a river flowing to the sea
You're running back to me
Come hear what I'm saying

Where do you go, my lovely?
I wanna know

Where do you go?

Where do you go?

I wanna know

Where do you, where do you go?

Save me

Come back and dry the tears, I cried for you, baby
You've gotta stop this heartache deep inside
You've gotta help me make it through the night safely
Come back and save me

Where do you go, my lovely?
Where do you go?
I wanna know, my lovely
I wanna know

Where do you go, my lovely?
Where do you go?
I wanna know

Where do you, where do you go?

Currents-The Death We Seek










With every gust of wind, we're blown further back
Forgetting more and more of our past
We sought to paint the world with our vision
Bitter times of our punishment now far and wide ignored
Is young demise not what you wished for?

The sky, it swells and sings
Begging for death at the hands of our misery
Blind pride was our disease
The world will feel the sting
The sky, it swells and sings
Begging for death at the hands of our misery
Blind pride was our disease
Do you accept your fate?

If I fall into the sky, who would I begin to blame?
Reaching further from the light, we become what we have made
Serenity always running from me
Can you feel it? Dark clouds fill the sky

As the sun begins to fade
We're swallowed in
A violent catastrophe begins
We are facing the end
We have found the death we seek
Torn apart at the dawn of suffering
Broken homes, decaying streets
Torn apart at the dawn of suffering
Chasms open beyond the scale of our perception
Disassociated with reality

The sky, it swells and sings
Begging for death at the hands of our misery
Blind pride was our disease
Do you accept your fate?

If I fall into the sky, who would I begin to blame?
Reaching further from the light, we become what we have made
Serenity always running from me
Can you feel it? Dark clouds fill the sky

To know I am at fault
I bite my tongue and hang my head in shame
But I know from one look in your eyes
All along you've deceived me

Why would I ever want this?
Digging through the depths and cutting through the cracks
All I wanted was to shape the Earth for you
And all you wanted was the knife digging through my back
Why would I ever want this?
Digging through the depths and cutting through the cracks
All I wanted was to shape the Earth for you
And all you wanted was the knife digging through my back

Marshmello Khalid-Numb :heart:










I, I wanna get numb
And forget where I'm from
'Cause lookin' in your eyes
Like lookin' at the sun
I feel like you're the moon
I feel like I'm the one
I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb

I, I wanna get numb
And forget where I'm from
'Cause lookin' in your eyes
Like lookin' at the sun
I feel like you're the moon
I feel like I'm the one
I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb, numb

Wanna get numb, go crazy
Wanna wild out 'cause lately
Life's so short but amazin'
Late night party in the basement
Hotel lobby and I'm wasted
Just reached into my savings
I'll do it too if you take it
Yeah, life's only what you make it

I, I wanna get numb
And forget where I'm from
'Cause lookin' in your eyes
Like lookin' at the sun
I feel like you're the moon
I feel like I'm the one
I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb

I just wanna get lost tonight and dance with you
I just wanna get way too high, let's set the mood
You're my fantasy, yeah, I don't wanna fall asleep yet
There's nothing in this world I'd rather do

I, I wanna get numb
And forget where I'm from
'Cause lookin' in your eyes
Like lookin' at the sun
I feel like you're the moon
I feel like I'm the one
I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb

I, I wanna get numb
And forget where I'm from
'Cause lookin' in your eyes
Like lookin' at the sun
I feel like you're the moon
I feel like I'm the one
I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb

(I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb, I)

I wanna get numb, numb, numb, numb

Tony Rich Project-Nobody Knows










"Nobody Knows"

[talking:]
Wish I told her how I feel,
Maybe she'd be here right now
But instead...

[singing:]
I pretend that I'm glad you went away
These four walls closing more every day
And I'm dying inside
And nobody knows it but me
Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows
And I'm crying inside
And nobody knows it but me

Why didn't I say the things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just a-tumblin' down
I can say it so clearly but you're nowhere around

The nights are so lonely the days are so sad and
I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

I carry smile when I'm broken in two
And I'm nobody without someone like you
I'm trembling inside
And nobody knows it but me (yeah)

Lie awake, it's a quarter past three
I'm screaming at night if I thought you'd hear me
Yeah, my heart is calling you
And nobody knows it but me (well, well)

How blue can I get?
You could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart
Billion words couldn't say just how I feel
A million years from now you know I'll be loving you still

The nights are so lonely the days are so sad and
I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

Oooo oohhhhh yeah

Tomorrow morning, I'm a hit a dusty road
Gonna find you, where ever, ever you might go
And I'm gonna load my heart and hope you come back to me

(Say whent the nights are lonely)
[x3 with adlib until fade]
The nights are so lonely the days are so sad and
I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me​

My favourite band since 13yo. I listen to all kinds of other types of music though, not a metalhead by any strech.
At first I did not understand the lyrics too much, just an angry teenager that liked how it sounded and the yelling. As time went on I started slowly understanding the lyrics, now I completely do.
Chester hanged himself 5 years ago. RIP. Maybe my destiny is the same, time will tell, looks like it currently. Maybe it was a sign all along. Hope to him there if I do.
The lyrics of this song are word for word how I fell when at the lowest:

Waking in sweat again
Another day's been laid to waste, in my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like I'll never leave this place, there's no escape
I'm my own worst enemy...

I've given up, I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away, I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

I don't know what to take
Thought I was focused but I'm scared, I'm not prepared
I hyperventilate
Looking for help somehow, somewhere and no one cares
I'm my own worst enemy

I've given up, I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away, I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

God!
Put me out of my misery!
Put me out of my misery!
Put me out of my
Put me out of my fucking misery!

I've given up, I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away, I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

Baby, look at me and tell me what you see

Baby, hold me tight, 'cause you can make it right
You can shoot me straight to the top
Give me love and take all I got to give
Baby I'll be tough, too much is not enough, no
I can ride your heart 'til it breaks
Oh, I got what it takes

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly

A beautiful song about someone contemplating his life, his faith, and death. I first heard it while watching one the finest television series IMO, Derek, by Ricky Gervais. It's well worth a watch.


My favorite song from the movie was Irene Cara singing Out There On My Own. It captures so much of the sentiment of the movie and the angst it delivers.

Irene Cara-Flashdance... What A Feeling :heart:
RIP :aw:










"Flashdance... What A Feeling"

First when there's nothing
But a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind

All alone, I have cried
Silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel
Made of stone

Well, I hear the music
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart

What a feeling
Being's believing
I can have it all
Now I'm dancing for my life

Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life

Now I hear the music
Close my eyes, I am rhythm
In a flash, it takes hold of my heart

What a feeling, being's believing
I can have it all
Now I'm dancing for my life

Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
Now I'm dancing through my life

What a feeling

What a feeling (I am music now)
Being's believing (I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life

What a feeling (I can really have it all)
What a feeling
(Pictures come alive when I call)
I can have it all (I can really have it all)

Have it all (pictures come alive when I call)
(Call, call ,call, call, what a feeling)
I can have it all (being's believing)
Being's believing (take your passion)
(Make it happen) Make it happen
(What a feeling) What a feeling​

Benson Boone-In The Stars :heart::aw::heart:









Sunday mornings were your favorite
I used to meet you down on Woods Creek Road
You did your hair up like you were famous
Even though it's only church where we were goin'

Now, Sunday mornings, I just sleep in
It's like I buried my faith with you
I'm screamin' at a God, I don't know if I believe in
'Cause I don't know what else I can do

I'm still holdin' on to everything that's dead and gone
I don't wanna say goodbye, 'cause this one means forever
Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far
Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard
For a million different reasons
You took the best of my heart
And left the rest in pieces

Diggin' through your old birthday letters
A crumpled 20 still in the box
I don't think that I could ever find a way to spend it
Even if it's the last 20 that I've got, oh

I'm still holdin' on to everything that's dead and gone
I don't wanna say goodbye, 'cause this one means forever
Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far
Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard
For a million different reasons
You took the best of my heart
And left the rest in pieces

I'm still holdin' on
Holdin' on, holdin' on
I'm still holdin' on
Holdin' on, holdin' on
I'm still holdin' on
Holdin' on
I'm still holdin' on
I'm still, ooh
Still holdin' on

I'm still holdin' on to everything that's dead and gone
I don't wanna say goodbye 'cause this one means forever
Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far
Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard
For a million different reasons
You took the best of my heart
Left the rest in pieces

Lorna Shore-Pain Remains II: After All I've Done, I'll Disappear :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:





I'll disappear
I'll disappear
It's like the world I knew keeps passing
Unlike the void I've become

Picking up pieces left from another life
This fleeting memory is everything you left behind
I'm just a whisper, just a specter locked away in time
This purgatory is eating away at my mind

Left to wander, left to dissipate
Without you I will never be the same
Left to confide, insecurity
When you disappeared, you took a part of me
I see you
Over and over
Far beyond me
I'm drifting away

Even inside a dream, this world
Has no meaning

And after all that I've done
After all of my pain
After all that I've become
Will I disappear?
Disappear
Like a ghost in the breeze
Like fading memories
Like the world you left
Was only just a dream
So I'll disappear
I'll disappear, I'll disappear

It's like the world I knew keeps passing
Unlike the void I've become

Letting go of perfection, another lie
This wretched melody is everything you left to die
I'm just a vacuum, just a fragment, an echo in time
This purgatory is eating away everything

Left to suffer, left without your place
Without you I will never be the same
Let me see you one more time
When you disappeared, you took a part of me
I see you
Over and over
Far beyond me
I'm drifting away

Even inside a dream, this world (This world)
Has no meaning

And after all that I've done
After all of my pain
After all that I've become
Will I disappear?
Disappear
Like a ghost in the breeze
Like fading memories
Like the world you left
Was only just a dream
So I'll disappear
I'll disappear, I'll disappear

And after all that I've done
After all of my pain
This fucking world disintegrates (I'll disappear)

And after all that I've done
After all of my pain
After all that I've become
Will I disappear?
Disappear (I'll disappear)
Like a ghost in the breeze
Like fading memories
Like the world you left
Was only just a dream
So I'll disappear (I'll disappear)
I'll disappear, I'll disappear
