    Most of the time i listen to my favourite music because of the lyrics.

    So what lyrics do you like and I'll start with.

    To Bid Your Farewell
    by Opeth

    I am awaiting the sunrise
    Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
    Once it came you lied
    Embracing us over autumn's proud treetops
    I stand motionless
    In a parade of falling rain
    Your voice I cannot hear
    As I am falling again
    Devotion eludes
    And in sadness I lumber
    In my own ashes I am standing without a soul
    She wept and whispered: "I know..."
    We walked into the night
    Am I to bid you farewell?
    Why can't you see that I try
    When every tear I shed
    Is for you?

    In the moonlight I felt your heart
    Quiver like a bowstring's pulse
    In the moon's pure light, you looked at me
    Nobody knows your heart

    When the sun is gone I see you
    Beautiful and haunting, but cold
    Like the blade of a knife, so sharp and so sweet
    Nobody knows your heart

    All of your sorrow, grief and pain
    Locked away in the forest of the night
    Your secret heart belongs to the world
    Of the things that sigh in the dark
    Oh the things that cry in the dark

    Sweet memory will die
    Killer on the road, yeah

    Malcolm Middleton writes wonderfully about depression.

    Lyrics from '5:14 Fluoxytine Seagull Alcohol John Nicotine'

    I'm halfway between useless and potential
    I'm all the way travelled from hope
    There's no one leading me down this road
    All the wrong turns have been my own
    Did you know that I'm telepathetic? When I walk in the room, I know
    All eyes turn towards me, everyone wants me to go

    I'm only happy when I'm sad and my good times are all bad
    And my best years have all left me along with you
    When I'm up, I'm still down, and my smile is my frown
    I'm a clown, I'm still falling away from you

    My hallway is fraught with dangers, it's peopled by memories and ghosts
    An apparition sits on my laundry, laughing and eating my toast
    I don't lock the door at night anymore, I've no one to keep safe
    Pancakes gone, kissing gone, along with the smile on my face
    I'm only happy when I'm sad and my good times are all bad
    And my best years have all left me along with you.

    ---


    Last night when I was sleeping a devil came to me.
    She said 'Malcolm... Malcolm... your soul belongs to me.
    She said 'you'll never amount to anything,
    You'll never achieve anything,
    You'll never be good at anything... and your songs are shite.'

    This morning I woke up sweating cause I knew that she was right.
    I'm dishonest and dirty, I just don't have a life.
    And I'll never amount to anything,
    I'll never achieve anything,
    I'll never be good at anything... and my songs are shite.

    Last night when I was sleeping an angel came to me.
    She said 'Malcky... Malcky... salvation lies with me.
    Because you can amount to something,
    You can achieve anything,
    You can be good at something... and your songs are alright'.

    This morning I woke up shaking cause I knew I had to choose a path.
    It's the devil or the angel, there's only one way for me.
    Cause I'll never amount to anything,
    I'll never achieve anything,
    I'll never be good at anything,
    And I'll never amount to anything,
    I'll never achieve anything,
    I'll never be good at anything... and my songs are pish.

    Two of my favorites from one of my favorite bands, Royal Hunt:
    (_) denotes female backing vocals

    Paperblood

    In Our Shop, as you can see
    You'd be the man you wanna be
    Unhappy with the way it goes?
    Just buy another life.

    And our prices who can beat?
    There's royal flesh and cannon meat
    (You name it!) my associate is sharpening her knives!
    (Take a peek inside) tell me how (how it feels like!)

    You're spilling (paperblood!)
    In The blaze of glory
    (Paperbood!)
    On the Holy Ground
    (Paperblood!)
    Neverending Story
    (Paperblood!)
    Makes the world go round and round...

    We've got it covered to the tee
    Another wife? Just take a brief
    Look at this fine selection of those b*tches from the east

    Selling friends, selling cars!
    A recent show with superstarts
    (A child, a war, a heart, a soul!)
    It's all to make you pleased... right!
    (Nothing is too strange!)
    When we are (in this price range!)

    You're wasting (paperblood!)
    In The blaze of glory
    (Paperbood!)
    On the Holy Ground
    (Paperblood!)
    Neverending Story
    (Paperblood!)
    Can buy a giant crown
    For a sad and weary clown
    (What for?)
    So he can smile and take a look around
    Across his kingdom - faux as it could be
    (And what is wrong with that?)
    Where tears of joy are impossible to see
    (What do we need them for?)
    WHere heartfelt laughter is not what you'll hear
    (And so what?)
    Enough of that! It's my biggest fear!

    You're wasting (paperblood!)
    In The blaze of glory
    (Paperbood!)
    On the Holy Ground
    (Paperblood!)
    Neverending Story
    (Paperblood!)
    Makes the world go round and round...

    the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usSWcJu64Gs
    (skip to 1.12 since there's an intro tape as it's the start of the show)

    Message To God

    The one who's watchin' over
    my shoulder - Get a life!
    I see your arms are nailed to the cross
    But your eyes are so alive

    I never thought you're lying
    But now it's turned round and round
    So many hearts are dying
    Cause you've let them down

    Over and over again...
    Over and over again...

    (Can't reach you, can't meet you)
    I gave you everything I've got
    (You hear me, don't leave me)
    It's my message to you, God.
    (Can't see you, can't feel you)
    I've lost just everything I've got
    (Forget me, you've left me)
    It's my message to you, God!

    We're busy burning witches
    The way we learnt from you
    We're good at killing creatures
    So teach us something new

    Common'!

    One of your own creations
    It's kinda hard to understand
    Are we such freaks of nature?
    Just tell me why did you create us then!

    Traces on the floor, I can hear the door (Closing me!)
    Right inside my dream, It's a sign from Him (Let me be!)
    Sunrise through the dust, future's in the past (Chasing me!)
    Shadows on the wall, voices down the hall (Calling me!)

    Over and over again... over and over again

    (Can't reach you, can't meet you)
    I gave you everything I've got
    (You hear me, don't leave me)
    It's my message to you, God.
    (Can't see you, can't feel you)
    I've lost just everything I've got
    (Forget me, you've left me)
    It's my message to you, God!

    The Yeti by Clutch

    Standing waist high in snow,
    what brought me here I do not know.
    Sky is filled with starry scenes
    of heroes and their greatest deeds.
    Satellites move across the sky,
    and every year they multiply.
    Father bear is sound asleep
    and will be so for several weeks.
    Across the plain I see a figure,
    every instant growing bigger.
    Instinct tells me to run away
    while faith proposes that I wave.
    He approaches to a rod.
    I whisper up a prayer to God.
    The stranger asks me with a grin,
    Do you have the time my friend?
    Himalaya is my old time stomping ground
    (oh yes, time is of the essence).
    Manitoba, better snows I've never found
    (oh yes, time is of the essence.)
    The author looms above his page
    and thinks it strange that at his age
    he can not find the proper words
    to describe his only world.
    One would think that in a life
    where no two snowflakes are alike
    one would have a brilliant rhyme
    for each and every bit of time.
    Himalaya is my old time stomping ground
    (oh yes, time is of the essence).
    Manitoba, better snows I've never found
    (oh yes, time is of the essence.)

    PM DAWN : If you never say goodbye

    Legs of a god,
    Head of a man,
    Eyes on the camera,
    Shaking everyone's heads.
    Vultures circle.
    And smack their lips,
    The sky goes black,
    As the lightening rips.
    The stars are mute,
    Moon without pity,
    As waves of blood,
    Roll over the city.
    It's not a rehearsal,
    Or special effects.
    It's the end of a story,
    It’s what happens next.
    If I say, if I say,
    It’s coming any second.
    If I say, and I say,
    In the blink of an eye.
    And I say, if I say,
    If I beg and I whimper.
    And I say it's OK,
    If you never say goodbye.

    Son of a child,
    Song of a beast,
    As it slouches and slithers,
    It’s way from the feast.
    I dreamt a dream,
    But what can it mean?
    Angels in love,
    Devoured the queen.
    All you people danced,
    And tore at their clothes.
    The sky grew fire,
    And the oceans froze.
    It wasn't a fable,
    It wasn't a hoax.
    The seventeen devils,
    Just speaking of jokes.
    And I say, if I say,
    It’s coming any second.
    If I say, and I say,
    In the blink of an eye.
    And I say, if I say,
    If I beg and I whimper.
    And I say it's OK,
    If you never say goodbye.

    I saw a chapel,
    Lain of God.
    The light was so blue,
    And the air was so cold
    Sounds of home,
    On a microphone.
    As the last kept rhythm
    Of chicken bone.
    People wept,
    And swallowed their jewels,
    entered like soldiers,
    departing as fools.
    It isn't incentive,
    It’s not a reward.
    It's a black parachute,
    With a noose for a chord.
    If I say, if I say,
    It’s coming any second.
    If I say, and I say,
    In the blink of an eye.
    And I say, if I say,
    If I'm lying in a window.
    And I say it's OK,
    If you never say goodbye.
    And I say it's OK,
    If you never say goodbye.
    And I say it’s OK,
    If you never say goodbye.
    And I say it’s OK,
    If you never say goodbye.
    And I say it’s OK,
    If you never say goodbye…

    Misty morning, clouds in the sky
    Without warning, the wizard walks by
    Casting his shadow, weaving his spell
    Funny clothes, tinkling bell

    Never talking
    Just keeps walking
    Spreading his magic

    Evil power disappears
    Demons worry when the wizard is near
    He turns tears into joy
    Everyone's happy when the wizard walks by

    Never talking
    Just keeps walking
    Spreading his magic

    Sun is shining, clouds have gone by
    All the people give a happy sigh
    He has passed by, giving his sign
    Left all the people feeling so fine

    Never talking
    Just keeps walking
    Spreading his magic

    I heard this song for the first time a long time ago when I wasn't teenager yet and actually prayed for them to come and chase my demons away:)

    One thing about Cradle of Filth, there songs are like mini stories, brilliantly written and great music too if you like that sort of thing :)

    Bathory Aria by Cradle of Filth

    [I. Benighted Like Usher]

    Snuffed tapers sighed
    As Death left impressing
    His crest of cold tears on the Countess

    Benighted like ill-fated Usher
    The House of Bathory shrouded
    'Neath grief's dark facade

    If only I could have wept
    In mourning by Her side
    I would have clasped Her so tight
    Like storm-beached Aphrodite
    Drowned on Kytherean tides

    And Kissed Her
    For from Her alone
    My lips would have known
    Enigmas of shadowy vistas

    Where pleasures took flesh
    And pain, remorseless
    Came freezing the breath
    Of raucous life hushed unto whispers

    Benighted.

    Inhaling the pale waning moonlight that crept
    Through the crypt of Her Lord who so lucidly slept

    Benighted.

    Exhaling the wail of black widowhood's toll
    Waxing eternal night entered Her soul

    [II. A Murder of Ravens in Fugue]

    Now haranguing grey skies
    With revenge upon life
    Gnathic and Sapphic
    Needs begged gendercide

    Delusions of Grandier denounced the revolt
    Of descrying cursed glass, disenchanted in vaults
    Encircled by glyphs midst Her sin-sistered cult

    With hangman's abandon She plied spiritworlds
    To Archangels in bondage
    From light to night hurled
    Cast down to the earth where torment would unfurl.......

    But soon,
    Her tarot proved
    Hybrid rumours spread like tumours
    Would accrue
    And blight Her stars
    However scarred
    To better bitter truths
    Of cold bloodbaths

    As bodies rose
    In rigid droves
    To haunt Her from their
    Shallow burials imposed
    When wolves exhumed
    Their carthen wombs
    Where heavy frosts had laboured long
    To bare their wounds

    To the depths of Her soul they pursued
    Wielding their poison they flew
    Like a murder of ravens in fugue

    And knowing their raptures
    Would shatter Her dreams
    She clawed blackened books for damnation's reprieve
    Baneful cawed canons on amassed enemies

    So Hallow's Eve
    As She received
    Like Bellona to the ball
    Those enemies
    Fell-sisters heaved
    Her torturies
    Cross stained flagstones
    To Her carriage reined to flee

    But She knew She must brave the night through
    Though fear crept a deathshead o'er the moon
    Like a murder of ravens in Fugue

    For each masked, jewelled gaze held dread purpose
    Horror froze painted eyes to cold stares
    And even Her dance
    In the vast mirrors cast
    Looked the ill of Her future
    If fate feasted there....

    [III. Eyes That Witnessed Madness]

    In an age crucified by the nails of faith
    When rank scarecrows of christ blighted lands
    An aloof Countess born an obsidian wraith
    Dared the abyss knowing well She was damned
    Her life whispered grief like a funeral march
    Twisted and yearning, obsessed an entranced
    With those succumbing to cruelty
    Crushed 'neath the gait of Her dance
    A whirlwind of fire that swept through the briers
    Of sweet rose Her thickets of black thorn had grasped...

    She demanded the Heavens and forever to glean
    The elixir of Youth from the pure
    Whilst Her lesbian fantasies
    Reamed to extremes
    O'er decades unleashed
    Came for blood's silken cure

    But Her reign ended swiftly
    For Dark Gods dreamt too deep
    To heed Her pleas

    When Her gaolers were assailed
    With condemnations from a priest
    Who'd stammered rites
    In the dead of night
    For maidens staining winding sheets

    And She postured proud
    When Her crimes were trowelled
    And jezebelled to peasant lips
    Though She smelt the fires
    That licked limbs higher
    To the tortured ****s of accomplices

    So ends this twisted fable's worth
    And though spared the pyre's bite
    By dint of nobled bloodlined birth
    Her sins (crimes) garnered Her no respite

    Forever severed from the thrill of coming night
    Where slow Death alone could grant Her flight

    "The Spirits have all but fled judgement
    I rot, alone, insane,
    Where the forest whispers puce laments for me
    From amidst the pine and wreathed wolfsbane
    Beyond these walls, wherein condemned
    To the gloom of an austere tomb
    I pace with feral madness sent
    Through the pale beams of a guiltless moon
    Who, bereft of necrologies, thus
    Commands creation over the earth
    Whilst I resign my lips to death
    A slow cold kiss that chides rebirth
    Though one last wish is bequathed by fate
    My beauty shalt wilt, unseen
    Save for twin black eyes that shalt come to take
    My soul to peace or Hell for company"
    (To peace or hell for company)

    My soul to Hell for company

    Since I dont have you - Guns n roses

    I don't have plans and schemes,
    And I don't have hopes and dreams.
    I don't have anything,
    Since I don't have you.


    And I don't have fond desires,
    and I don't have happy hours.
    I don't have anything,
    Since I don't have you.


    Happiness, and I guess,
    I never will again.
    When you walked out on me,
    In walked ol' misery,
    And he's been here since then.


    (spoken) Yeah, we're fucked!


    I don't have love to share,
    And I don't have one who cares.
    I don't have anything,
    Since I don't have you.
    You, you, you, oh, oh!

    Oh, where is your inflammatory writ?
    Your text that would incite a light, be lit
    And music deserving devotion unswerving
    Cried "Do I deserve her?" with unflagging fervour
    Well, no you do not, if you cannot get over it.

    And what's it mean when suddenly we're spent?
    Ambition came and reared its head, and went.
    Even mollusks have weddings, though solemn and leaden
    But you dirge for the dead, take no jam on your bread
    Just a supper of salt and a waltz through your empty bed.

    And all at once it came to me,
    And I wrote and hunched 'til four-thirty
    But that vestal light, it burns out with the night
    In spite of all the time that we spent on it
    On one bedraggled ghost of a sonnet!
    While outside, the wild boars root
    Without bending a bough underfoot
    Oh it breaks my heart, I don't know how they do it.

    And as for my inflammatory writ?
    Well, I wrote it and I was not inflamed one bit
    Advice from the master - derail that disaster!
    He said "Hand that pen over to me, Poetaster!"
    While across the great plains, keening lovely and awful,
    Ululate the last Great American Novels
    An unlawful lot, left to stutter and freeze, floodlit.
    But at least they didn't run, to their undying credit.

    Inflammatory Writ, Joanna Newsom

    When you wish upon a star
    Makes no difference who you are
    Anything your heart desires
    Will come to you

    If your heart is in your dream
    No request is too extreme
    When you wish upon a star
    As dreamers do

    Fate is kind
    She brings to those who love
    The sweet fulfillment of
    Their secret longing

    Like a bolt out of the blue
    Fate steps in and sees you through
    When you wish upon a star
    Your dreams come true

    All of Genesis but especially Harold the Barrel :tongue:

    News:

    A well-known Bognor restaurant-owner disappeared
    early this morning.
    Last seen in a mouse-brown overcoat,
    suitably camouflaged,
    they saw him catch a train.


    Man-in-the-street:

    "Father of three its disgusting"
    "Such a horrible thing to do"
    Harold the Barrel cut off his toes and he served them all
    for tea
    "Can't go far", "He can't go far".
    "Hasn't got a leg to stand on"
    "He can't go far".


    Man-on-the-spot:

    I'm standing in a doorway on the main square
    tension is mounting
    There's a restless crowd of angry people


    Man-on-the-council:

    "More than we've ever seen.
    - had to tighten up security"

    Over to the scene at the town hall
    The Lord Mayor's ready to speak


    Lord Mayor:

    "Man of suspicion, you can't last long, the British Public
    is on our side"


    British Public:

    "Can't last long", "You can't last long".
    "Said you couldn't trust him, his brother was just the same"
    "You can't last long".


    Harold:

    If I was many miles from here,
    I'd be sailing in an open boat on the sea
    Instead I'm on this window ledge,
    With the whole world below
    Up at the window
    Look at the window...


    Mr.Plod:
    "We can help you"

    Plod's Chorus:
    "We can help you"

    Mr. Plod:
    "We're all your friends, if you come on down
    and talk to us son"


    Harold:
    You must be joking
    Take a running jump

    The crowd was getting stronger and our Harold
    getting weaker;
    Forwards, backwards, swaying side to side
    Fearing the very worst
    They called his mother to the sight
    Upon the ledge beside him
    His mother made a last request.


    67-yr-old Mrs Barrel:
    "Come off the ledge if your father were alive he'd be very,
    very, very upset.
    "Just can't jump, you just can't jump"
    "Your shirt's all dirty, there's a man here from
    the B.B.C."
    "You just can't jump"


    Mr. Plod:
    "We can help you"

    Plod's Chorus:
    "We can help you"

    Mr. Plod:
    "We're all your friends, if you come on down
    and talk to us Harry"


    Harold:
    You must be joking.
    Take a running jump......

    Needle and the damage done - Neil Young

    I caught you knockin'
    at my cellar door
    I love you, baby,
    can I have some more
    Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

    I hit the city and
    I lost my band
    I watched the needle
    take another man
    Gone, gone, the damage done.

    I sing the song
    because I love the man
    I know that some
    of you don't understand
    Milk-blood
    to keep from running out.

    I've seen the needle
    and the damage done
    A little part of it in everyone
    But every junkie's
    like a settin' sun.
    ----------------
    have to remind myself of this song from time to time

    I do not listen music much. I hate most of songs of my language because they cheat me miss some things which are not available for me. I like some english language songs but most of because I hear and understang them wrong and thought they are more beauty than they really are. My hobby is make up new words to songs. Now i work with songs of 69eyes. After I have give new words, I imagine words goes like I wrote.

    I also wrote songs about snow but I can not make music of ´them because I do not have any instruments.

    Happy by Stabbing Westward

    I know you've grown to hate me
    even more then you have grown to hate yourself
    But has it really made a difference
    sharing all that hate with someone else

    (Chorus)
    Tell me are you really happy
    do you think he's really worth the pain
    Tell me are you really happy
    or did you simply throw our life away just to be unhappy

    Does he worship and adore you
    does he make you feel so beautifully complete
    Is your life so much better now
    or do those same old demons haunt your sleep

    (Chorus)

    Is he everything you've dreamed of
    I imagine he is so much more then me
    And I tried to make you happy
    but I believe you thrive on misery

    (Chorus)

    Uninstall

    It came from somewhere beyond the farthest reaches of the world that we know, like a creature of shadow
    It came to mock us, for we are so naive that we can't comprehend it,
    And truly, we are fragile and small
    I cannot hold onto the truth
    As it slips right through my fingers like a picture that is made of smoke
    I don't know how I will last, because my body is so weak that I may crumble away

    Uninstall, uninstall
    I was told that I am just a single speck of dust
    And cannot be more
    But I do not understand or grasp the true meaning
    Uninstall, uninstall
    I no longer have a choice but to pretend
    I am brave
    For a soldier has to be brave
    Uninstall

    Our unseen thoughts have been growing ever sharper, unbeknownst to us, deep within the subconscious
    But an incling of what has been occuring is revealed to me as
    I hear the restless monsters when I sleep
    Now my heart is empty and numb
    Save for an unrelenting impulse to destroy all things that I can see
    It is born from all of the pain, for I have lost the will to choose the day I'll crumble away

    Uninstall, uninstall
    If there's noone who can take this burden in my place
    Then there's no choice
    But to take my simple life and
    Uninstall, uninstall
    And it makes me want to end it all with my own hands
    Is it wrong?
    Surely it's alright to want to uninstall.

    Uninstall, uninstall
    I was told that I am just a single speck of dust
    And cannot be more
    But I do not understand or grasp the true meaning
    Uninstall, uninstall
    I no longer have a choice but to pretend
    I am brave
    For a soldier has to be brave
    Uninstall

    Do You Dream of Me? by Tiamat

    Come down, slowly
    I'm waiting by your side
    Come down, carefully
    I'm waiting by your side
    I'll grab you when you fall
    Down to the waking hours
    Silent sweeps as golden corn
    Down to the waking hours
    How i wish that I could
    Break into your dreams
    Do I have the force I need
    To break into your dreams
    I hold you in my arms
    Dimmed by scarlet morning red
    I whisper in your ear
    Do you dream of me?

    Reflection = Christina Aguilera

    Look at me
    You may think you see
    Who I really am
    But you’ll never know me
    Every day, is as if I play apart
    Now I see
    If I wear a mask
    I can fool the world
    But I can not fool
    My heart
    Who is that girl I see
    Staring straight back at me?
    When will my reflection show
    Who I am inside?
    I am now
    In a world where I have to
    Hide my heart
    And what I believe in
    But somehow
    I will show the world
    What’s inside my heart
    And be loved for who I am
    Who is that girl I see
    Staring straight back at me?
    Why is my reflection
    Someone I don’t know?
    Must I pretend that i’m
    Someone else for all time?
    When will my reflection show
    Who I am inside?
    There’s a heart that must
    Be free to fly
    That burns with a need
    To know the reason why
    Why must we all conceal
    What we think
    How we feel
    Must there be a secret me
    I’m forced to hide?
    I won’t pretend that i’m
    Someone else
    For all time
    When will my reflections show
    Who I am inside?
    When will my reflections show
    Who I am inside?

    I Can Go The Distance - Micheal Bolton (very inspirational song)


    I have often dreamed of a far off place,
    Where a heros welcome would be waiting for me.
    Where the crowds would cheer, when they see my face,
    And a voice keeps saying this is where I'm meant to be

    I'll be there someday, I can go the distance.
    I will find my way if I can be strong.
    I know every mile would be worth my while,
    When I go the distance, I'll be right where I belong.


    Down an unknown road to embrace my fate,
    Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you.
    And a thousand years would be worth the wait.
    It might take a lifetime but somehow I'll see it through


    And I won't look back, I can go the distance,
    And I'll stay on track, no I won't accept defeat,
    It's an uphill slope,
    But I won't loose hope, 'till I go the distance
    And my journey is complete, oh yeah.

    But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part,
    For a heros strength is measured by his heart, ohh...

    Like a shooting star, I will go the distance,
    I will search the world, I will face it's harms,
    I don't care how far, I can go the distance,
    'Till I find my heros welcome waiting in your arms.
