    Sometimes music helps relate to the thoughts I'm having. Sometimes it helps and sometimes I listen because I'm that mood.

    My music I listen to when I have these thoughts are:

    Radiohead - There,There and Optimistic
    Breaking Benjamin - Unknown Soldier
    Coldplay - Everything's Not Lost

    I know there's more but I can't think of it at the moment.

    This is one of the most difficult questions I've ever encountered. Music to describe yet soothe the pain is a little more understandable in the realm of what I would think of the purpose of melody and lyrics, but I thank you for such a deep-thinking sort of question.

    I'm a bit at a loss as to whether to take the philosophical tack or the comical/cynical one, and first thoughts on both those respectively would be In My Life by the Beatles with vocals by Johnny Cash, and fairly regularly over any particular week the words to All of Me by Willie Nelson seem to run through my mind.

    PS: The former in praise to God I suppose, and the latter in frustration at the disease.
