Muse- Knights of cydonia

And how can we win,
When fools can be kings,
Don't waste your time,
Or time will waste you,

Then the girl in the cafe taps me on the shoulder
I realize five years went by I'm older
Memories smoulder winters colder
But that same piano loops over and over and over
The road shines and the rain washes away
The same Chinese takeaway selling shit in a tray
It's dark all round I walk down, same sights same sounds, new beats though
Solid concrete under my feet
No surprises no treats the world stands still as my mind sloshes round
The washing up bowl in my crown
My life's been up and down since i walked from that crowd

crazy, I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
I knew, you'd love me as long as you wanted
And someday, you'd leave me for somebody new

Worry, why do I let myself worry?
Wondering, what in the world should I do

Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for thinking that my love can hold you
I'm crazy for trying, crazy for crying, and I'm crazy for loving you.

-Kidney Thieves (patsy cline originally)

I love that Patsy Cline original, Purple. I've heard it something like 1000 times. Your adapted version is also quite good!

My choice for a song that sums up life is Blue World, by the Moody Blues.

Here is a link for it on youtube, for as long as it's any good:
YouTube - The Moody Blues - Blue World


"Blue World"

Heart and soul took control
Took control of me
Paid my dues spread the news
Hands across the sea
Put me down turned me round
Turned me round to see
Marble halls open doors
Someone found the key
And it's only what you do
That keeps coming back on you
And it's only what you say
That can give yourself away

Underground sight and sound
human Symphony
Heard the voice had no choice
needed to be free
Fly me high touch the sky
Left the earth below
Heard the line saw the sign
Knew which way to go
Cos it's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run

It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue world

Heart and soul took control
Took control of me
Paid my dues spread the news
Hands across the sea
Put me down turned me round
Turned me round to see
Marble halls open doors
Someone found the key
And it's only what you do
That keeps coming back on you
And it's only what you say
That can give yourself away
Cos it's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run

It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue world

Default Four and twenty years ago

Four and twenty years ago,
I come into this life,
the son of a woman
and a man who lived in strife.

He was tired
of being poor
and he wasn't into selling
door to door

and he worked like the devil
to be more.

A different kind of poverty
now upsets me so.
Night after sleepless night,
I walk the floor
and I want to know-

why am I so alone?
Where is my woman
can I bring her home?
Have I driven her away?

Is she gone?


Morning comes to sunrise
and I'm driven to my bed.
I see that it is empty
and there's devils in my head.

I embrace
the many colored beast.
I grow weary of the torment,
can there be no peace?

And I find myself just wishing
that my life would simply cease.

- Stephen Stills

This one is "I Against Me" by Agonoize

Is it me? Is it really me? I cannot stand myself

Sometimes I hate myself for what i've done
Sometimes I hate myself for who i am
Sometimes I hate myself for what i've lost
Sometimes I hate myself for what went wrong

Misguided by myself - full of fatal pride
Always gone to far - always over the edge
So full of arrogance - too blind to see the outside world
Running in circles - so bored of life

I against me, me against myself
I have become my enemy number one
I against me, me against myself
I have become my enemy number one

Feeling so useless - raping my mind
Sometimes I hate myself for being blind
Fighting myself - what will it be?
Sometimes I hate myself for hating me
Sometimes I hate myself for thinking twice
Sometimes I hate myself without compromise
Full of broken dreams - always on the run
Crushed by myself - i come undone

I against me, me against myself
I have become my enemy number one
I against me, me against myself
I have become my enemy number one

Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35 by Bob Dylan

Well, they’ll stone ya when you’re trying to be so good
They’ll stone ya just a-like they said they would
They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to go home
Then they’ll stone ya when you’re there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Well, they’ll stone ya when you’re walkin’ ’long the street
They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to keep your seat
They’ll stone ya when you’re walkin’ on the floor
They’ll stone ya when you’re walkin’ to the door
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

They’ll stone ya when you’re at the breakfast table
They’ll stone ya when you are young and able
They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to make a buck
They’ll stone ya and then they’ll say, “good luck”
Tell ya what, I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Well, they’ll stone you and say that it’s the end
Then they’ll stone you and then they’ll come back again
They’ll stone you when you’re riding in your car
They’ll stone you when you’re playing your guitar
Yes, but I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Well, they’ll stone you when you walk all alone
They’ll stone you when you are walking home
They’ll stone you and then say you are brave
They’ll stone you when you are set down in your grave
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Nobody's Home-Avril Lavinge. I literally don't have a place to go (other than here, where I'm safe).

Well, I couldn't tell you why she felt that way
She felt it everyday
And I couldn't help her
I just watched her make the same mistakes again.

What's wrong, what's wrong now
Too many, too many problems
Don't know where she belongs
Where she belongs.

She wants to go home, but nobody's home
That's where she lies, broken inside
With no place to go, no place to go
To dry her eyes, broken inside.

Open your eyes and look outside
Find the reasons why
You've been rejected
And now you can't find what you've left behind.

Be strong, be strong now
Too many, too many problems
Don't know where she belongs
Where she belongs.

She wants to go home, but nobody's home
That's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go
To dry her eyes, broken inside.

Her feelings she hides, her dreams she can't find
She's losing her mind, she's falling behind
She can't find her place, she's losing her faith
She's falling from grace, she's all over the place, yeah.

She wants to go home, but nobody's home
That's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go
To dry her eyes, broken inside.

She's lost inside, lost inside
Ohh, ohh
She's lost inside, lost inside
Ohh, ohh, yeah.

Metallica - Fade to black
---------------
Life it seems will fade away
Drifting further everyday
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

Things not what they used to be Missing one inside of me
Deadly loss this cant 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, hes gone

No one but me can save myself, but its too late
Now i cant think, think why i should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now i will just say goodbye
Goodbye

Slipknot- all hope is gone

I am the reason your future suffers
I am the hatred you wont embrace
I am a worm of a pure distinction
I am the remedy, spit in my face!
