"Fade To Black" as written by Rick Hollywood Pagan and Lisa Steele....
Life it seems will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free
No one but me can save myself but it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me but now he's gone

(Yes, this is a Metallica cover)

    General CommentI love the irony of dancing to a song about depression.

    I personally would have to say this is one of the few cover songs that is better than the original.

    General CommentAs much as I enjoy this cover...it doesn't even come close to the original. I'm sorry, but nobody will ever make it better than the original.

    General Commentmetallica obviously own this song. quite like the sonata arctica version, mostly because i prefer his voice. but this one is strangely good as well. i have all three in my playlist of epic songs. apop are probably one of my favourite bands.
