A quote that really resonates with my feelings of what I'm going through right now.

It's called Thistles and Weeds, by Mumford and Sons. I'm sorry that I had to post the full song, but it just fits in it's entirety.

Spare me your judgements and spare me your dreams

Cause recently mine have been tearing my seams

I sit alone in this winter clarity which clouds my mind

Alone in the wind and the rain you left me

It's getting dark darling, too dark to see

And I'm on my knees, and your faith in shreds, it seems

Corrupted by the simple sniff of riches blown

I know you have felt much more love than you've shown

And I'm on my knees and the water creeps to my chest

But plant your hope with good seeds

Don't cover yourself with thistle and weeds

Rain down, rain down on me

Look over your hills and be still

The sky above us shoots to k-ll

Rain down, rain down on me

But I will hold on

I will hold on hope

I begged you to hear me, there's more than flesh and bones

Let the dead bury the dead, they will come out in droves

But take the spade from my hands and fill in the holes you've made

But plant your hope with good seeds

Don't cover yourself with thistle and weeds

Rain down, rain down on me

every thousand years

this metal sphere

ten times the size of Jupiter

floats just a few yards past the earth

you climb on your roof

and take a swipe at it

with a single feather

hit it once every thousand years

`til you've worn it down

to the size of a pea

yeah I'd say that's a long time

but it's only half a blink

in the place you're gonna be

where you gonna be

where will you spend eternity

I'm gonna be perfect from now on

I'm gonna be perfect starting now

-built to spill, "randy described eternity"

Seems like just yesterday

You were a part of me

I used to stand so tall

I used to be so strong

Your arms around me tight

Everything, it felt so right

Unbreakable, like nothin' could go wrong

Now I can't breathe

No, I can't sleep

I'm barely hanging on

Here I am, once again

I'm torn into pieces

Can't deny it, can't pretend

Just thought you were the one

Broken up, deep inside

But you won't get to see the tears I cry

Behind these hazel eyes

I told you everything

Opened up and let you in

You made me feel alright

For once in my life

Now all that's left of me

Is what I pretend to be

So together, but so broken up inside

'Cause I can't breathe

No, I can't sleep

I'm barely hangin' on

Here I am, once again

I'm torn into pieces

Can't deny it, can't pretend

Just thought you were the one

Broken up, deep inside

But you won't get to see the tears I cry

Behind these hazel eyes

Swallow me then spit me out

For hating you, I blame myself

Seeing you it kills me now

No, I don't cry on the outside

Anymore...

Anymore...

Here I am, once again

I'm torn into pieces

Can't deny it, can't pretend

Just thought you were the one

Broken up, deep inside

But you won't get to see the tears I cry

Behind these hazel eyes

"Fly like a bird,

Take to the sky,

I need your love Lord to carry me high

Don't let the world

Break me tonight

I need the strength of you by my side

Sometimes this life can be so cold

I pray you'll come and carry me home"

'Fly Like a Bird' ~ Mariah Carey

Music by Lights from the CD "The Listening" ,Song title "Pretend"

It would be nice to start over again bofore we were men

I'd give, I'd bend, let's play pretend

And when it's the end our lives will make sense

We'll give, we'll bend, let's play pretend

I listen to this often, it brings me to the past or delivers me to the future, anywhere but this wretched place I'm at now.:tear2: :tear2:

LOVE that band! And that song. My favorite's "Face Up" though.

I was just thinking Thistle and Weeds. Great song, the first verse was my facebook status a couple days ago. :p

I feel the need to post this in its entirety as well:

"While we're on the subject

Could we change the subject now?

I was knocking on your ear's door but you were always out

Looking towards the future

We were begging for the past

Well we knew we had the good things

But those never seemed to last

Oh please just last

Everyone's unhappy

Everyone's ashamed

Well we all just got caught looking

At somebody else's page

Well nothing ever went

Quite exactly as we planned

Our ideas held no water

But we used them like a dam

Oh, and we carried it all so well

As if we got a new position

Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell

Saying yes, this is a fine promotion

Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell

Of course everyone goes crazy

Over such and such and such

We made ourselves a pillar

We just used it as a crutch

We were certainly uncertain

At least I'm pretty sure I am

Well we didn't need the water

But we just built that good God dam

Oh, and I know this of myself

I assume as much for other people

Oh, and I know this of myself

We've listened more to life's end gong

Than the sound of life's sweet bliss

Was it ever worth it?

Was there all that much to gain?

Well we knew we missed the boat

And we'd already missed the plane

We didn't read the invite

We just dance at our wake

All our favorites were playing

So we could shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

Tiny curtains open and we heard the tiny clap of little hands

A tiny man would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all the folks

Sitting drifting around in bubbles and thinking it was us that carried them

When we finally got it figured out that we had truly missed the boat

Oh, and we carried it all so well

As if we got a new position

Oh, and we owned all the tools ourselves

But not the skills to make a shelf with

Oh, what useless tools ourselves"

Missed the boat- modest mouse

If I had to choose an all time favorite song, I'd choose this one. No song has impacted me or gotten me through tough nights like that one has.

You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate- Hate Me, Blue October

You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take. So I'll drive so ******* far away that I never cross your mind, and do whatever it takes in your heart, to leave me behind.

I have to block out thoughts of you so I don't lose my head, they crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed. Dropping little reels of tape, to remind me that I'm alone. Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home.

Love it :)

May you always walk in sunshine, slumber warm when night winds blow.

May you always live with laughter, for a smile becomes you so.

May good fortune find your doorway, may the bluebird sing your song.

May no trouble travel your way, may no worry stay too long.

May your heartaches be forgotten, may no tears be spilled.

May old acquaintance be remembered, and your cup of kindness filled.

And may you always be a dreamer, may your wildest dream come true.

May you find someone to love, as much as I love you.

May old acquaintance be remembered, and your cup of kindness filled.

And may you always be a dreamer, may your wildest dream come true.

May you find someone to love, as much as I love you.

Robbie WIlliams, "Feel"

Come on hold my hand,

I wanna contact the living.

Not sure I understand,

This role I've been given.

I sit and talk to god

And he just laughs at my plans,

My head speaks a language, I don't understand.

I just wanna feel real love,

Feel the home that I live in.

'cause I got too much life,

Running through my veins, going to waste.

I don't wanna die,

But I ain't keen on living either.

Before I fall in love,

I'm preparing to leave her.

I scare myself to death,

That's why I keep on running.

Before I've arrived, I can see myself coming.

I just wanna feel real love,

Feel the home that I live in.

'cause I got too much life,

Running through my veins, going to waste.

And I need to feel, real love

And a life ever after.

I cannot get enough.

I just wanna feel real love,

Feel the home that I live in,

I got too much love,

Running through my veins, going to waste.

I just wanna feel real love,

In a life ever after

There's a hole in my soul,

You can see it in my face, it's a real big place.

Come and hold my hand,

I wanna contact the living,

Not sure I understand,

This role I've been given

Not sure I understand.

Not sure I understand.

Not sure I understand.

Not sure I understand.

Great song that I can completely relate to.

You Me At Six (ft chiddy)- Rescue Me

I know, I'm finding it hard to breathe

And I've been drowning in my own sleep

I feel a hate crashing over me

So rescue me

So rescue me

Everybody need to drive before we break out like hives

Gotta learn to put this s*** we call pride to the side,

I ain't no player, without you I'm not OJ

Viva la vida now she wanna give me Coldplay

Once you find you can't keep it

You broke my heart into million tiny little pieces

And now its purge on you, never put hurt on you

Talkin' to your girlfriends tryna find dirt on you

D***, is this what we have come to?

When he was cheating I was the person you run to

Guess it's for another time this is what I've come to find

Should've seen this coming but Stevie Wonder

Love is blind

I know, I'm finding it hard to breathe

And I've been drowning in my own sleep

I feel a hate crashing over me

So rescue me

So rescue me

She used to be the person of my dreams

And now she's just a demon of my nightmares

I know this s*** ain't what it seems

Hey, hey you ain't leavin', I'll be right here

Shorty just rescue me, I know you especially

The way I always felt with you

Thinking that true telepathy

Like the age and their games

We used to be blinding

Who would have thought that when you left

The right would become the wrong thing

I know, I'm finding it hard to breathe

And I've been drowning in my own sleep

I feel, A hate crashing over me

So rescue me

So rescue me

irth of the True by Aztec Camera

I feel the magic that our time has traced,

And make a point of it in every place.

But every place deserves a curse or two,

For making me so far away from you.

I saw some pictures of the world at war,

I couldn't suss what all the fuss was for,

I wear a picture of you wearing black,

And kissing me behind the butler's back.

Sometimes I get down,

But it's not you that gets me down,

It's just the sense of the impossible,

Gratuitously handed down.

Chorus:

But oh no, not you, don't wipe your eyes over lies,

Just let them shine their blue,

On every whisper that welcomes the inconceivable,

And the birth of the true.

I'd sack the world and make a second start,

I'd sack my head until I found my heart,

I'd fill the distance with a red parade,

And burn the banks down while the bugles played.

Sometimes I get down,

But it's not you that gets me down,

It's just the sense of the impossible,

Gratuitously handed down.

"I couldn't see a thing till my eyes went blind.

I never knew a thing till I lost my mind.

I would sell my soul to know it all

but I had the keys all this time!"

Bring Me the Horizon - Visions

"It's not cuz you're not here with me, it's cuz you never leave!

...

Every second, every minute, every hour, every day

it never ends. it never ends!!!!"

Bring Me the Horizon - It Never Ends

"My thick tongue hangs down low to the ground, licking up the sweat drippin off of her heels. She wants my teeth to wear, she wants my hell to bear. Well missy it's a lock for load. If you wanna grind hips, don't do it alone. Don't say no prayers no not for me. Just cut me out!"

The Dillinger Escape Plan - Milk Lizard

so many songs by so many bands. Notably, the Deftones, Circa Survive, As Cities Burn, Bloc Party, Bring Me the Horizon, Rise Against, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, etc.

couple choice ones:

The Number Twelve Looks Like You - Cradle in the Crater

We all thought the same

he was going to be okay

thankful for my clean brain.

Scratched my head, felt the dandruff piling up underneath my fingernails.

Thankful for my clean brain.

He was just a boy, flying to space

in a cardboard box, sleeping on the moon in his dreams.

Fly your flag forever, don't let anything stop you.

Cancer doesn't grow, there is no such word as suffering.

Next time you fall asleep, look down on us at earth and realize it may be better to forever count sheep.

You're the captain of your ship and star.

And for today you will shine and be imprevious to pain, we've all admired your bravery.

With boots tied and chin up, we watch you fly away.

Through stormy weather - holding your ground.

Keeping your eyes fixed on the prize.

This must have been God's mistake, and correction in giving you eternal life.

So young, but in good hands, the strength of 100 armies to keep your evils at bay.

Just keep walking and keep flying... and never give up

The Number Twelve Looks Like You - The League of Endangered Oddities

There's nothing made for you or me

So turn me into a tree, and I'll stand silently.

Observe everyone i can never be

There's a club out there for me, oh just you wait and see

They want a perfect being, a clone

And then we're left alone, we're left all alone

Rejected, but I'm accepted into the League of Endangered Oddities

It's my one true home

So here's to another battle we can't win

Let's drop our heads

and Sing to birds

And help those who don't fit in

Hate my legs, hate my head, to hell with everything I have

Turn their cringes into smiles

Even the servants of god are pedophiles

I'm on the train back from my no name job

to my no name town...

This is where I'm joined by the rest of the clowns

A smile I can't perfect.

A figure I can't figure out.

A weight heavily on my mind.

But I love my life and I'll drink to that.

Bloc Party - Rhododendron

On the hottest night of the year

Lying in a patch of rhododendrons

A bottle of whisky under my arm

Trying to count a sky full of stars

I dream of order, I dream of fleets

Of Napoleon in aquamarine

He said "Linus put that blanket down

You've slammed your door too many times"

He said "Linus put that blanket down

The world won't wait"

Boy, what you gonna do with your life?

When I was your age, I was commanding fleets

When I was your age, I was soaked in victory

And now you can't keep a job and you can't keep a wife

What a horrible mess you're gonna make of your life

Watched way too many American films

To be John Wayne, Brando or James Dean

Waiting so long for your wrists to get thick

Waiting so long for the next great party

So many questions, so little to say

You don't need these weights

Boy, what you gonna do with your life?

So you want to be an artist, want to be a singer

Want to be remembered for what you could create

So you want to be a cowboy, ride into the distance

Never have to listen or answer to anyone

So you want to be a boxer, surviving on your instincts

Relying on your fists and the quickness of your wit

Are you bigger than these buildings and the grey around you?

Is your pain more worthy than everybody else?

Drawn together in rhododendrons

Poison the Well - Apathy Is a Cold Body

the person staring through

the person staring through the reflective

you've turned and run off with all

off to the other side with you

and i know, i know

you tried so D*** hard to be so happy

so you say, what do i do now that you are me ?

i'll fade with time, just like in dreams

inherit my shoes, they were too hard to fill anyways

i want it to go well for you, start over and do it right

this time for me

open the eyes, look at this wall and notice the one that

borrows and steals

i do this to myself

stick to the side roads

they help interesting thoughts

you see what you want to see

As Cities Burn - Wrong Body

If I make it to heaven

I may be as ****** as hell.

Would you still take me?

I'm afraid that you might say,

"Depart from me, for I never knew you."

I'm in the wrong body.

I must have stumbled in.

All the love I want to give,

Gets caught between every rib.

What does that make me?

I have good intentions,

But no exit for them to come out right through.

"Focus on the horizon men, should you grow seasick

but don't expect sillhouette of rescuer ship comin

they aren't comin for us, no"

As Cities Burn - This Is It, This Is It

And my most beloved line of all:

"Take me back to where I was before I was born

It's light, sweet, and dreamless sleep

It sounds like heaven to me..."

As Cities Burn - Timothy

One more nail in the coffin, one more foot in the grave, one more time I'm on my knees as I try to walk away...

I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand ******* times - that I'm ok, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind.

You say this is a suicide? I say this is a war.... And I'm losing the battle.
