Well, this is kinda what I think from time to time :)

BEFORE I FORGET by Slipknot.

Go!

Stapled shut, inside an outside world and I'm
Sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm
Catastrophic, not again
I'm smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me up on all your sordid little insurrections,
I've got no time to lose, and I'm just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the strings
Throw the shapes
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a worm before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I'm ripped across the ditch, and settled in the dirt and I'm
I wear you like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions
I've got no right to win, I'm just caught up all the battles

Locked in clutch
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a worm before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a worm before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

My end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road and my end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
THE END OF THE ROAD!

I am a worm before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a worm before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

Die am a worm before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
Die will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OH!

Reminds me of my relationship with my x girlfriend

McFly - Down Goes Another One -

Did the best that I could
Said I'd die for you and I would
But I drowned all those feelings in the flood

Need to know if you're there
If you're listening to my prayers to my tears
Feel like raindrops through the mud

How was I to know that a year ago I'd need to read between the lines
And every lie and thats why

Every time I fall asleep my dreams are haunted
And every time I close my eyes I'm not alone
And every time I cry I'm right back where you wanted
I try to drown you out so down goes another one
(Down goes another one)
Down goes another one
(Down goes another one)
Down goes another one
(Down goes another one)

Living Fast
Dying young
But I'm living with what you've done
Now I face accusations
I won't run
No

I'm starting to remember things that you said
I'm unravelling what they meant
But the world moves on
You're just another one

And how can I go on
'Cause when I'm in the sun I see your shadow on the ground
But you're never there when I turn around

Every time I fall asleep my dreams are haunted
And every time I close my eyes I'm not alone
And every time I cry I'm right back where you wanted
I try to drown you out so down goes another one

Whoo

And how can I go on
'Cause when I'm in the sun I see your shadow on the ground
(Shadow on the ground)
But you're never there when I turn around

'Cause every time I fall asleep my dreams are haunted
(My dreams are haunted)
And every time I close my eyes I'm not alone
And every time I cry I'm right back where you wanted
(Right back where you wanted)
I try to drown you out so down goes another one
(Hey)
Down goes another one
(Down goes another one)
Down goes another one

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Well, I guess this depicts 100% my current mood, so....

SLIPKNOT- Sulfur.

My guilt and my shame
Always sell me short always feel the same
And my face and my soul
Always wear me thin always under control
But the longest hours you'll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you're right
So I'll wait but I'll pray that I'm wrong
Because I think I know what's going on

So let me get this straight the only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I'm not a failure but I know what It's like
I can take it or leave it or die

STAY...You don't always know where you stand
'Till you know that you won't run away
Theres something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur...

My life is undone I'm a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my Gods are untrue I'm probably wrong but I'm better than you
And the longest hours I had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I'm safe but I'm a little outside
I'm gonna laugh when I'm buried alive

STAY...You don't always know where you stand
'Till you know that you won't run away
Theres something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur...

i also love pink floyd :)

music pokes at my mood more than most things i know.

Mazzy Star, 'Into Dust' - for the sadness.. or sleepiness. I can't recommend it enough:

and Smog, 'Rock Bottom Riser'. cos it resonates with my situation and cos Bill Callahan's voice is honey and gold:

Passing Afternoon by Iron and Wine.

There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms

There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves

There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
Springtime calls her children 'till she let's them go at last
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds

There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
But my hands remember hers, rolling 'round the shaded ferns
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned

There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
Sometimes, with the windows closed, she'll sit and think of me
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone

There are so many... But mostly I listen to Aimee Mann songs when I feel down -- which is always. And something heavier, like Tool, when I'm angry.

A couple of random songs that spring to mind at the moment are "Fear of a Blank Planet" by Porcupine Tree and "Condemned to Rock and Roll" by the Manic Street Preachers, which pretty much sums up my current feelings:

Always feeling torn and slow
Love song cull destroy poem
Misery and trauma making love
Best go shoot the fucking doves
The past is so beautiful
The future like a corpse in snow
I think it's all the fucking same
It's a life sentence babe

A line of vodka tears inside
A shot of boredom helps my mind
Staring through a thousand dead eyes
I guess my nerves are brutalised

Lips I kiss just another plague
Love can't fix the hole they made
Condemned to rock n'
Condemned to rock n' roll

No innocent exit when hope dies
And claustrophobia buys my mind
I ran to breathe contagious lies
No reasons for just living life
Ripcord opens but my soul is cold
With you I never felt more alone
Skin never sweating dignity
Kept my line beneath ecstasy

This fragile prison of sanity
An ocean wave to death babe
Masochistic love going nowhere
You're nothing, pestilience, a seed

Lips I kiss just another plague
Love can't fix the hole they made
Condemned to rock n'
Oblivions all we know

Lips I kiss just another plague
Lips I kiss just another plague
Love can't fix the hole they made

Sterile like a line of piss, motherfucker
Review with avant garde lips, you're just a motherfucker

There's nothing I wanna see
There's nowhere I wanna go
