And a moderator here adds: huge emphasis on the WHY.

No lists, no post with only the songtitle.

''I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love I need to forget her face, I see it still
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel''

Totaly describes my life perfectly
Beacsue its true, I dont belive into iy and neve rwill, I jsut live like this song teach, damn if I had bicke Its be perfect

Unfortunatly I cant find UK Subs lyric ''Riot'' but I like it too
''There comes Riot Squard
Thay are charging in
Wghit Tear Gas and Gas Granade''

Thats what I like to see, watching in TV riot cops in atcion are great

My Dying Bride - '' My Wine In Silance'' but only song title, because I love wine, love alcohoil, I drink it and and do it silantly

There others but I cant think right now and I dontw anna give titles too, because I cant explain why and I acbt remeber but there others hmmm like Iron maiden ''Fear Of Teh Dark'' specely part ''Im Man Who Walks Alone''

Beyond the Pubyard by Tankard. describes my current circumstances perfectly simply because i always go to my 9 AM class helluv hungover and reeking of booze or vomit or a hellish combination of the aforementioned elements.


I wake up in the toilets
Stinking of alcohol
Who am I? Can't remember
Ain't sure I wanna know

The beer stains on my clothing
Revealed by neon lights
They tell me every morning
Another thirsty night

A lover of bottles I am
Been born here, grew up here, I'll die here
The stuff in the sink is my brain
My father smelled offensive
My mother was a bitch
But it was love at first drink
They practiced what they preached

minus the stanky, bitchy ass parents, this song is me all over.

Probably this little bit from Manowar's Return of The Warlord:

"Losers try to put us down it's just another day
I got no money or big house just got life
I don't like to save it's fun to spend
If you like metal you're my friend"

i'm really a "if you like metal you're my friend" dude, and i just can't hold myself from spending money when i have more cash than usual(and i'm pretty broke most of the times).

Not really "right now" but many songs have come to be my life's describing stuff. The most recently is No Light No Hope, by Swallow The Sun.The lyric is very solid and also offensive. You also can see some part of it in my signature

Fall deeper and deeper
Don't forget what you have done
Did I ever say?
Some things can't be undone
Fall into my darkest thoughts
No light, no hope
My dagger in your heart is the mark of my true love

Venomous lips and poisonous words
That's what you are made of my dear
Eyes wide shut, left to rot
No regrets

Fall into my darkest thoughts
No light, no hope
My dagger in your heart is the mark of my true love

And my current Username is inspired from that song.

I can really relate t this and what to varda says, music is something of great importance in my life and i constantly relate my life, and what happens to me, with what the lyrics of a song say. thing is i'm kinda bipolar, hehe, so it really changes a lot for me, although some sonata arctica songs relate constantly like Broken for instance. Non-metal stuff i relate to astor piazzollas' lyrics for Balada para mi muerte (ballad for my death).
btw, something intersting i did last night on facebook was a series of questions, and the idea was to put your music list on shuffle so to answer every question you just put the name of the song that came up... here's the link if someone feel like checking it out, athough the questions are in spanish

Well, yesterday my girlfriend and me broke up after 2 years and 3 months, and even if could be a temporary thing I have already found myself singing "Wasted Time" by Skid Row many times....

How can you look at yourself when you think of what you left behind?

i don't mean to discourage you or anything, but you'll find yourself singing more songs of this type of lyrics, even 'worse' ones. it sucks big time and i know how it feels, so just... be prepared or something. although you can always cheer yourself up with other songs, that's what i do. sorry 'bout you and your gf, btw

The first 3 months after my break-up were all about Skinny Love by Bon Iver, Black by Pearl Jam and Snuff by Slipknot. But this past month has been all about Alanis Morrisette's You Oughta Know, especially the line "an older version of me."
But moving onto bigger and better things, mostly related to my upcoming trip overseas, I've been playing Santa Monica by Everclear endlessly (in fact the whole Sparkle & Fade album has been on repeat for a week).

Don't think I could choose 1 song to describe my whole life. I've got different songs for different moments in my life, songs that remind me of people, places, events, emotions, etc. Won't bore u all with a list

...just like Black Mass there's alot of songs that describe my life actually but at the time i'd say the song would be: take the time - dream theater...i just finished collegue, starting a lot of new things, learning how to be alone and still enjoy it, letting go people i love, etc...i won't post the whole lyrics, just some phrases...


"...i feel the heat within my mind and craft new challenges with my eyes...giving freely wandering promises a place with decisions i'll fashion i wont waste another breath...the unbroken spirit obscured and disquiet finds clearness this trial demands and at the end of this day sighs an anxious relief for the fortune lies still in his hands...life is no more assuring than love...close your eyes you can find all that you need in your mind..."



@ Bad English: i love wine too hehe
@ Djävul: sorry about that dude...
@ tulkas: i did that shuffle thing before too lol
@ Dane: ...nice song!!

I remember once i was on a minibus and i was blasting "Jump In The Fire" by Metallica in my headphones... involuntarily i started to nod my head and silently singing along. one of the best driving songs ever

hmm but as for right now.. is there a song about being lazy and not studying for tests?

as for my life in general, Black Sabbath's lyrics really get to me:

Heaven and Hell

The closer you get to the meaning
the sooner you'll know that you're dreaming

...
Well if it seems to be real, it's illusion
For every moment of truth, there's confusion

Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And it's on and on, on and on and on....
They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams


so much truth in these lyrics, many times my convictions have been proven wrong, so i decided to take everything with a real heavy dose of skepticism, cause, like in the song, you really can't tell which is Heaven and which is Hell.

Manowar- Metal Daze

I hear the sound
In a metal way
I feel the power
Rolling off the stage
Cause only one thing
Really sets me free
Heavy Metal
Loud as it can be
Baby I was born to play music
I'm a man with a screamin guitar
There's a light in the middle of the stage
In a minute I'll be wearing it all
I don't know another way of living
Baby I don't really care
Give me a pair of jeans
And a riff that's mean
And girls that love to share

my love for playing guitar, especially to this song with the volume cranked waaay up, and my love for everything 80s, cheesy, bombastic and in-your-face, in one word: Manowar.

and last but not least, Deep Purple- When a Blind Man Cries. you all know this one, it pretty much summarises how i feel when loneliness gets to me.

Right now Anesthetize of Porcupine Tree

"The dust in my soul
Makes me feel the weight in my legs
My head in the clouds
And I'm zoning out

I'm watching TV
But I find it hard to stay conscious
I'm totally bored
But I can't switch off"

Broken by Senteced.

I have come a long way where I started from
but I'm still not even close to where I'm going
(and now) I can no longer see the shine
that has been lighting up my way
I cannot feel its glowing

The fire in my heart is dying
and the zeal I had is gone

This path that I've chosen's a rocky one
Long, hard and frozen it has become
Each turn that I've taken on the way
has only led me back to Hell
I am dying down growing weaker now
It could seem that I'm doing fine
but I'm broken to little pieces deep inside

Why did I ever choose to go this way
The question I keep asking myself all the time
I guess it was my instinct for self-destruction
that pointed me down this way

The fire in my eyes is dying
and the dream I had is gone

This path that I've chosen's a rocky one
Long, hard and frozen it has become
Each turn that I've taken on the way
has only led me back to Hell
I am dying down growing weaker now
It could seem that I'm doing fine
but I'm broken to little pieces deep inside

Depressing reading....have none of you a good self-image?

Anyway, here is my "theme song" and usually one that describes my life the best....

Voyager - Time for Change

I turn to see what I purport to be
I transgress established hierarchies
I hope you will accept my company
That my behaviour is what you want it to be

I present you being what I am
I present you wanting what I can

And when the evening comes
Beware the setting sun I'm not the one I
used to be. Take this façade off me, what I
purported to be. You'll be the only one to see

I believe in innocence I believe it till the
end. No one finds me to rest in peace
I believe in innocence, I believe it till the
end

Oh no
Although success is what I crave
Embrace my common flaws, bring out the hidden slave
And see the flesh that's really me
You can keep the shell but I return to the
sea, Present you with my point of view
Accept me now, and the winner is you
I am not many, all but few

Why did I not act upon my instincts?
Two roads diverged in yellow wood
I took the one embraced in endless shadow
But I'm at the journey's end

Time for change now

Why did I not act upon my instincts?
Two roads diverged in yellow wood
I took the one embraced in endless shadow
But I'm at the journey's end


-------------------------------------------------------------

Reason? I'm constantly trying to do what my head say, that usually means time for change, as i tend to do many misstages...

Anathema-are you there


Are you there?
Is it wonderful to know
All the ghosts...
All the ghosts...
Freak my selfish out
My mind is happy
Need to learn to let it go
I know you'd do no harm to me

But since you've been gone I've been lost inside
Tried and failed as we walked by the riverside
Oh I wish you could see the love in her eyes
The best friend that eluded you lost in time
Burned alive in the heat of a grieving mind

But what can I say now?
And It couldn't be more wrong
Cos there's no one there
Unmistakably lost and without a care
Have we lost all the love that we could share
And its wearing me down
And its turning me round
And I can't find a way
Now to find that it out
Where are you when I need you...

Are you there?

"The Art of Dying" by Gojira. Check the lyrics:

Breathing slowly, mechanical heartbeat
losing contact with the living
Almighty TV plugged, hybrid empty brain
don't see anything real in the game
The tension is building constantly
No reason just a reflex I have, driven by clockwork
I try to keep an eye open
And I realize I haven't closed my eyes in a long time

Neglected emotions lead to catastrophic voyage on the other side
I have been given so much stress and lack of confidence
I've been given the gift of so small hope deep inside
I haven't closed my eyes in a long time, I am trying

I cannot stomach these forms and colors anymore
but I'm here to continue, after all I have been through
I try to keep my eyes open, I am realizing
This life and death more precious than anything

I won't bring no material in the after life
Take no possessions, I would rather travel light
I'm of this kind that kills all day
but I don't know yet how to die

Art of dying, is the way to let all go
Within I practice in the secret of my soul
My shape in the reflector
has now for ever, a life on it's own

Yeah, I understand what all of you are talking about. I can remember many songs that in the past helped me to go ahead with my life or just to enjoy it. "Angel" by Judas Priest is the most recent song that describes me, I used to listen to it last December, and by now, "Panic Attack" by Dream Theater, does not describes me, but can really describe the life of two of my closest friends at the moment, and when I listen to that song I feel like I understand them (because that song used to describe me a long time ago and I know how it feels to be like that).

I think I would need a few songs to describe each aspect of my life, although at this exact moment in time, Emperor of the Void by Candlemass has a special place.

And another great thread.
Well, the song that perfectly describes my life right now is....it doesn't have to be a metal song, right? Well, the best non-metal song that describes my life right now is ''I am a Rock'' by Simon and Garfunkel. Why? Because the lyrics fit perfectly with my life s(h)ituation right now and describe my life and feelings right now exactly. Actually it always fits be because that's how I feel in general and it's become my own hymn.
