    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.

    Powerful songs for powerful feelings, lol.

    I hope you're well. : )

    On a real note tho, the catharsis this song gave (and still gives) me over the years probably prevented me from doing anything too terrible

    It's more ranges of songs along an album. It makes more sense to refer to the latter:

    In our Wake - Atreyu
    Asking Alexandria - Asking Alexandria
    The Sin and the Sentence - Trivium
    Imaginary Enemy - The Used

    “You've got the words to change a nation
    But you're biting your tongue
    You've spent a life time stuck in silence
    Afraid you'll say something wrong
    If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?
    So come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    You've got a heart as loud as lightning
    So why let your voice be tamed?
    Maybe we're a little different
    There's no need to be ashamed
    You've got the light to fight the shadows
    So stop hiding it away
    Come on, come on
    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream 'til the words dry out
    So put it in all of the papers,
    I'm not afraid
    They can read all about it
    Read all about it, oh
    Oh oh oh

    At night we're waking up the neighbors
    While we sing away the blues
    Making sure that we're remembered, yeah
    'Cause we all matter too
    If the truth has been forbidden
    Then we're breaking all the rules

    Hope when you take that jump
    You don't fear the fall
    Hope when the water rises
    You built a wall
    Hope when the crowd screams out
    They're screaming your name
    Hope if everybody runs
    You choose to stay
    Hope that you fall in love
    And it hurts so bad (Yeah)
    The only way you can know
    You gave it all you had
    And I hope that you don't suffer
    But take the pain
    Hope when the moment comes,
    You'll say
    I, I did it all
    I, I did it all
    I owned every second that this world could give
    I saw so many places, the things that I did
    Yeah with every broken bone
    I swear I lived
    I'd like to teach the world to sing
    In perfect harmony
    Hope that you spend your days
    But they all add up
    And when that sun goes down
    Hope you raise your cup
    I wish that I could witness
    All your joy and all your pain
    But until my moment comes
    I'll say
    I, I did it all
    I, I did it all
    I owned every second that this world could give
    I saw so many places, the things that I did
