^ I was talking about songs like Anthem of The Angels, Crawl, Lights Out, Hopeless, etc. which are all about death and gloom. I don't mind the screams, but some songs are just too morbid.

More Shinedown!

Two packs of cigarettes a day
The strongest whiskey Kentucky can make
That's a recipe to put a vagabond
On his hands and knees

I watched it all up close
I knew him more than most
I saw a side of him he never showed
Full of sympathy for a world that wouldn't let him be

That's the man he was
Have you heard enough?

What a shame, what a shame
To judge a life that you can't change
The choir sings, the church bells ring
So won't you give this man his wings?
What a shame to have to beg you to
See we're not all the same, what a shame

There's a hard life for every silver spoon
There's a touch of gray for every shade of blue
That's the way that I see life
If there was nothing wrong then there'd be nothing right

And for this working man
They say could barely stand
There's gotta be a better place to land
Some kind of remedy for a world that wouldn't let him be

That's the man he was
Have you heard enough?

What a shame, what a shame
To judge a life that you can't change
The choir sings, the church bells ring
So won't you give this man his wings?
What a shame to have to beg you to
See we're not all the same, what a shame

God forgive the hands that laid you down
They never knew how
But your broken heart can break the sound
And change the seasons

Now the leaves are falling faster
Happily ever after
You gave me hope through your endeavors
And now you will live forever

What a shame, what a shame
To judge a life that you can't change
The choir sings, the church bells ring
So won't you give this man his wings?
What a shame to have to beg you to
See we're not all the same, what a shame

What a shame, what a shame
'Cause we're not all the same
What a shame, what a shame
'Cause we're not all the same

^ What song is that? I don't think I've heard that one before? Also, are you into CCM (Christian Contemporaries)? I am a little, but I'm not one a die hard CCMer, but yesterday I was listening to this song which I love and I'll post the lyrics.
"The Words I Would Say" - Sidewalk Prophets. I find this song great, and it's one of those songs I listen too when I'm depressed, although I don't know much about Sidewalk Prophets, sorry.

It's Three in the morning
and I'm still awake
so I picked up a pen and a page.
And I started writing
just what I'd say
if we were face to face

I'd tell you just what you mean to me
Tell you these simple truths

Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got his hand on you so
don't live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

Last time we spoke
you said you were hurting
and I felt your pain in my heart
I want you to know
that I keep on praying
Love will find you where you are

I know 'cause I've already been there
So just hear these simple truths

Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got his hand on you so
don't live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

From one simple life to another
I will say
Come find peace in the Father

Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got his hand on you so
don't live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
Thank God for each day
His love will find a way
These are the words I would say. (from azlyrics)

And yeah, after thinking about it, Lights Out is pretty depressing. Ben Burnley, according to Wikipedia, has several phobias (inspiring the Phobia album), including fear of flying, fear of the dark, and he's a hypochondriac. It also says he's a recovering alcoholic. I think he writes about that aspect in a lot of his songs, and I read a long time ago that those were the inspiration to the songs "Evil Angel" and "Dance with the Devil."

^ CCM is a bit too soft for me, but I don't doubt for a second that the lyrics are good. I like Christian bands more along the lines of Red, Thousand Foot Krutch, Disciple, and Skillet. The song I posted above is called "What a Shame" from their album The Sound of Madness.

I think this is just me, but I think Christian music should be classified as more of "inspirational/awareness-of-problems-and-fixing-them" music. I mean, the lyrics are great, but they're not exactly Jesus-y. Like compare "Monster" to any Church song. There's something different about it than a Church song. I really love this genre of music though, and it's by far my favorite genre of music. Idk that's my opinion what do you think?

"Monster" - Skillet

The secret side of me
I never let you see
I keep it caged
But I can't control it
So stay away from me
The beast is ugly
I feel the rage
And I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls
In the closet, in the halls
It comes awake
And I can't control it
Hiding under the bed
In my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this?
Make it end!

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become
The nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

My secret side I keep
Hid under lock and key
I keep it caged
But I can't control it
Cause if I let him out
He'll tear me up
And break me down
Why won't somebody come and save me from this?
Make it end!

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become
The nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

It's hiding in the dark
It's teeth are razor sharp
There's no escape for me
It wants my soul,
It wants my heart

No one can hear me scream
Maybe it's just a dream
Or maybe it's inside of me
Stop this monster!

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become
The nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I'm gonna lose control
Here's something radical
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster [4x]


And btw, do you know what the song "Unity" by Shinedown is about? I can't figure it out.

I think it's basically what the title says, bringing everyone together for some common cause.

Black Veil Brides is another band I've been listening to lately. Here are the lyrics to "In the End." It's one of my favorite songs by BVB, I also like their transformation from a metalcore band to a hard rock band, although I still love the old BVB.

In the end
As you fade into the night (oh whoa oh oh)
Who will tell the story of your life?

In the end
As my soul's laid to rest
What is left of my body
Or am I just a shell?
And I have fought
And with flesh and blood I commanded an army
Through it all I have given my home for a moment of glory
(I gave it all)

In the end
As you fade into the night (oh whoa oh oh)
Who will tell the story of your life (oh whoa oh oh)
And who will remember your last goodbye (oh whoa oh oh)
Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die.

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid to die

Born a saint
Though with every sin I still wanna be holy
I will live again
Who we are
Isn't how we live we are more than our bodies
If I fall I will rise back up and relive my glory

In the end
As you fade into the night (oh whoa oh oh)
Who will tell the story of your life (oh whoa oh oh)
And who will remember your last goodbye (oh whoa oh oh)
Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

In the end
As you fade into the night (oh whoa oh oh)
Who will tell the story of your life (oh whoa oh oh)
And who will remember your last goodbye (oh whoa oh oh)
Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

Who will remember this last goodbye (oh whoa oh oh)
Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

Not afraid
I'm not afraid to die
Not not afraid
I'm not afraid to die!

I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!

"Hymn for the Missing" Red

Tried to walk together
But the night was growing dark
Thought you were beside me
But I reached and you were gone

Sometimes I hear you calling
From some lost and distant shore
I hear you crying softly
For the way it was before

Where are you now? Are you lost?
Will I find you again?
Are you alone? Are you afraid?
Are you searching for me?

Why did you go? I had to stay
Now I'm reaching for you
Will you wait? Will you wait?
Will I see you again?

You took it with you when you left
These scars are just a trace
Now it wanders lost and wounded
This heart that I misplaced

Where are you now? Are you lost?
Will I find you again?
Are you alone? Are you afraid?
Are you searching for me?

Why did you go? I had to stay
Now I'm reaching for you
Will you wait? Will you wait?
Will I see you again?

Blackbird by Alter Bridge. I consider this song to be the first true musical masterpiece of the 21st century. Aside from the lyrics, the guitar solo is probably the best I've ever heard.

The willow it weeps today
A breeze from the distance is calling your name
Unfurl your black wings and wait
Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away
It's coming to sweep you away

[Chorus:]
Let the wind carry you home
Blackbird fly away
May you never be broken again

The fragile cannot endure
The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure
The static of this cruel world
Cause some birds to fly long before they've seen their day
Long before they've seen their day

[Chorus:]
Let the wind carry you home
Blackbird fly away
May you never be broken again

Beyond the suffering you've known
I hope you find your way
May you never be broken again

Ascend may you find no resistance
Know that you made such a difference
All you leave behind will live to the end
The cycle of suffering goes on
But memories of you stay strong
Someday I too will fly and find you again

[Chorus:]
Let the wind carry you home
Blackbird fly away
May you never be broken again

Beyond the suffering you've known
I hope you find your way
May you never be broken again
May you never be broken again
