Prepare to meet your maker,
your unmaker, your remaker-
make yourself
don't fake, you'll make the same mistakes
and if your fed up then ask yourself why
because you sit around and pick at your scabs while your answer waits
wake up
nobody cares about what you think
and don't blame them because you know they're just like you
and if you get this then get the fuck up-
before you can't remember why you can't live and you're too late too

Fuck it up derelict
now suck it up and deal with it
find yourself

Set it if you get it,
all this confusion imbedded in my head
should let the dead bury the dead for good
she said i'm so vain-
i don't understand why i can't just break away from tendencies that i know i should
wake up - nobody ever told you to breath
have we forgotten everything we thought once true?
i think i'll move on-
'cause i can't stand to lay around and decay till i'm too late too

Murder me destiny
spare me the ignominy
give up insecurity
just be what you wanna be
compelled to procrastinate
i nearly go blind from sight
forget it insane
i say come set it if you get it right

Find your self

    only one comment? :( this is one of my all time favorite metal songs. it makes me pissed that i might be wasting my life. it really makes you want to get up and move. kind of motivational, but pissed that some people just don't know how to motivate themselves.

    basically, any emo depressive kids should hear this song, maybe it'll snap them out of it!

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
