    "I don't love you I'm just passing the time, you could love me if I knew how to lie, but who could love me I am out of my mind" - She Had The World by Panic! At The Disco (Again my love of complicated romanticism, what can I say? Relatable is relatable)

    "The road outside my house is paved with good intentions, hire a construction crew, 'cos it's hell on the engines" - Hum Hallelujah by Fall Out Boy (Always loved this line since first hearing it, not much more to say on it)

    "You need him, I could be him, I could be an accident but I'm still trying and that's more than I can say for him" - Grand Theft Autumn by Fall Out Boy (Eh, see my previous comments on complicated romanticism, same category yo)

    "Put aside your burdens, put away your fears, or I'll carry them, as I'd carry you, until the very end."
    -If I Was by VNV Nation

    The song's already been around for a month and it's one of the nicest lyrics I've ever heard.

    Well, being me I can barely remember anything.. However I will throw some down when I remember
    Because I'm an awful insomniac I think
    "I guess I'll sleep when I am dead!" Song name is also that, band is "set it off"
    Yep, that's all I can remember .-.

    I get so angry when the teardrops start,
    but he can't be wounded 'cause he's got no heart.

    They may say that you are nothing,
    But their words don't mean a thing.
    Just believe in yourself
    And keep moving on.
    Let that anger built up inside you
    Be the thing that keeps you going
    Cause you know that you have potential
    To do great things.
    Now show them they're wrong!

    MetalCorePony and Princewhateverer = Good music :)

    I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
    But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
    We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand....until you hold my hand


    Rise Against - Swing Life Away

    Normal is not the norm,
    It's just a uniform...
    (We are the others)
    Forget about the norm,
    (We're the outsiders)
    Take off your uniform,
    (We are the others)
    We are all beautiful,
    (We are the others)


    Delain - We Are The Others

    In this broken world,
    I can't tell black from white,
    so I'm still wary of the kindness you show me

    sweet ARMS - Date A Live (デート・ア・ライブ)
    (AKA The OP Theme for Date A Live - translation is approximate)

    You can't feel the heat until you hold your hand over the flame
    You have to cross the line just to remember where it lays
    You won't know your worth now, son, until you take a hit
    And you won't find the beat until you lose yourself in it


    Rise Against - Satellite
    (The rest of the song is equally important)

    See who I am,
    Break through the surface.
    Reach for my hand,
    Let's show them that we can
    Free your mind and find the way.
    The world is in our hands,
    This is not the end.

    Within Temptation - See Who I Am


    ...alright, it might be a bit idealistic to say I really "live" by some of these, but they definitely sum up some of my patterns of thinking and affect my actions. Particularly the two Rise Against and the Delain songs.

    Odd one here, the whole song means a bit to me but mostly the title, MCR - "I never told you what I do for a living"
    Just ask anyone who knows me and they won't know, it's like our meets greatest mystery (though the assumption have been a good laugh)

    Darkness come tonight
    I have no fear of what you hold
    Darkness come alive
    You are the stories I've been told

    Darkness come tonight
    Nothing can take my faith away
    Darkness come alive
    Life fades to black from silver grey

    So he hands me the box and I open up the lid and the weasels jump out
    And they immediately latch onto my face and start bitin' me all over
    (rabid gnawing sounds)
    Oh man, they were just going nuts
    They were tearin' me apart
    You know, I think it was just about that time that a little ditty started goin' through my head"
    I believe it went a little something like this . . .

    Doh
    Get 'em off me
    Get 'em off me
    Oh
    No, get 'em off, get 'em off
    Oh, oh God, oh God
    Oh, get 'em off me
    Oh, oh God
    Ah, (more screaming)

    I remember going outside and there wasn't a war/
    It was alright just to walk down to the store/
    Some how we let fear get the best of us/
    It's time to open the book, it's time to discuss/
    How to make things better, how to make things alright/
    I'm gonna stay right here if it takes all night, all night, all night...

    I'm pretty sure anyone who's been looking at my signature recently will realise I adore VNV Nation - their lyrics are always masterful in my eyes... and their music isn't half bad either. :p

    But really, there's just one that I live by from their most recent album.

    "Don't tell me it's the end of everything,
    It always seems the darkest before the light."

    "Keep holding on while my brain's ticking like a bomb, guess the black thoughts have come again to get me."- KoRn, Coming Undone.

    "Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine
    Staying home to watch the rain
    And you are young and life is long
    And there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find
    Ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run
    You missed the starting gun

    And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death" - Pink Floyd - Time

    "I'm Not Alright"
    Shinedown

    All dressed up
    In a white straitjacket
    Shut your mouth
    No, you can't have it


    Paper airplanes
    Open window
    Here today
    And gone tomorrow

    [Chorus]

    I like to stare at the sun
    And think about what I've done
    I lie awake in my great escape


    I like crossing the line
    And slowly losing my mind
    Are you ok
    'Cuz I feel fine
    Maybe it's me
    I'm just crazy
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright


    All messed up
    And slightly twisted
    Am I sick or am I gifted


    Paper airplanes
    Open window
    Here today
    And gone tomorrow

    [Chorus]

    I like to stare at the sun
    And think about what I've done
    I lie awake in my great escape


    I like crossing the line
    And slowly losing my mind
    Are you ok
    'Cuz I feel fine
    Maybe it's me
    I'm just crazy
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright


    Woh
    I don't care if you apologize
    I can't lie
    Woh
    I can't lie


    I like to stare at the sun
    And think about what I've done
    I lie awake in my great escape


    I like crossing the line
    And slowly losing my mind
    Are you ok
    'Cuz I feel fine
    Maybe it's me
    I'm just crazy
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright
