    What are the lyrics/songs that speak to you - those that you've turned to in difficult moments of personal struggle (either because you found understanding there and/or encouragement to keep going)?

    I'm not a huge Grimes fan, but I like her recent single and quoted part of it in my signature:

    I shot myself yesterday
    got to heaven anyway
    think I might regret it now
    tie my feet to rocks and drown


    For various reasons, that's not an entirely inaccurate description of my life trajectory (at least how I'm interpreting it). Deliberate self destruction and abandoning myself to nihilism only to wake up and discover I got everything I ever wanted. Except I'm still me, so I put the gun back in my mouth from time to time. It's a dichotomy I'll always wrestle with.



    There are a lot of lyrics I could write about, including one from the NIN concert you posted. I actually made a similar thread to this one time. You and I would probably get along well.

    Yes, I can relate to this in a way.

    It would be also good to have a thread on books with similar topic.

    Hi @PapillonT – It depends on what the personal struggle is. There are songs I tie to all major life events, songs that are my theme songs, and songs that inspire me and motivate me. There are so many, from so many genres, that I can't list them.


    Grimes grew on me like a fungus. It started with one song, now I like many (not all) of her songs.
