    I checked to see if there was already a thread on this, but it doesn't seem to be. But if there is, someone can post the link.

    So here goes:

    Which song (not songs) do you think best reflects who you are as a person/an individual? Not a genre, type of music or artist, but a particular song (including music and lyrics)?

    Welcome to my secret lair on Skullcrusher Mountain
    I hope that you've enjoyed your stay so far
    I see you've met my assistant Scarface
    His appearance is quite disturbing
    But I assure you he's harmless enough
    He's a sweetheart, calls me master
    And he has a way of finding pretty things and bringing them to me

    I'm so into you
    But I'm way too smart for you
    Even my henchmen think I'm crazy
    I'm not surprised that you agree
    If you could find some way to be
    A little bit less afraid of me
    You'd see the voices that control me from inside my head
    Say I shouldn't kill you yet

    I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you
    But I get the feeling that you don't like it
    What's with all the screaming?
    You like monkeys, you like ponies
    Maybe you don't like monsters so much
    Maybe I used too many monkeys
    Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

    I'm so into you
    But I'm way too smart for you
    Even my henchmen think I'm crazy
    I'm not surprised that you agree
    If you could find some way to be
    A little bit less afraid of me
    You'd see the voices that control me from inside my head
    Say I shouldn't kill you yet

    Picture the two of us alone inside my golden submarine
    While up above the waves my doomsday squad ignites the atmosphere
    And all the fools who live their foolish lives may find it quite explosive
    But it won't mean half as much to me if I don't have you here

    You know it isn't easy living here on Skullcrusher Mountain
    Maybe you could cut me just a little slack
    Would it kill you to be civil?
    I've been patient, I've been gracious
    And this mountain is covered with wolves
    Hear them howling, my hungry children
    Maybe you should stay and have another drink and think about me and you

    I'm so into you
    But I'm way too smart for you
    Even my henchmen think I'm crazy
    I'm not surprised that you agree
    If you could find some way to be
    A little bit less afraid of me
    You'd see the voices that control me from inside my head
    Say I shouldn't kill you yet
    I shouldn't kill you yet
    I shouldn't kill you yet

    WOW...thats a huge request...I think Im gonna go with Digital Ghost by Tori amos...it fits me best most days

    "Digital Ghost"

    It started as a joke
    Just one of my larks to see
    If somehow I could reach you so

    I swam into your shores
    Through an open window
    Only to find you all alone

    Curled up with machines
    Now it seems you're slipping
    Out of the land of the living

    Just take a closer look
    Take a closer look
    At what it is that's really haunting you

    I have to trust you'll know
    This digital ghost
    But I fear there's only so much time
    'cause the you I knew is fading away

    Hands lay them on my keys
    Let me play you again
    I am not immune to your net

    Find me there in it
    I won't go even if in
    Your heart only beats ones and O's

    Switch you on my friend
    Pull you from that rip current
    But only you can fight against this

    Take a closer look
    Just take a closer look
    At what it is that's really haunting you

    I have to trust you'll know
    This digital ghost
    But I fear there's only so much time
    'cause the you I knew is fading away

    Fading
    Fading
    Away

    This is mostly for the sound. It starts off as very loose, nondescript, and uncertain. Then it slowly, but quickly builds into a torrent of sound that is very rapid, exacting, and detailed, with great depth to it. It almost seems like two songs in one once the shift occurs, but it is all one song. This exactly parallels how my mind works, and how I more often then not feel.

    I see you Maria.

    And that's a great song. I've never heard of it before now, "Apparitions"--cool name too.

    You took one I was going to post too. "Vincent" is such a great song, and so sad. I learned it on guitar at one time. I'll have to think on this one.

    Dido: Honestly Ok
    I just want to feel safe in my own skin,
    I just want to be happy again
    I just want to feel deep in my own world
    But I'm so lonely
    I don't even want to be with myself anymore
    On a different day,
    if I was safe in my own skin,
    then I wouldn't feel lost and
    so frightened
    But this is today and I'm lost in my own skin
    And I'm so lonely
    I don't even want to be with myself anymore
    I just want to feel safe in my own skin,
    I just want to be happy again.


    On some days it's my song...

    hmmm....a song that reflects me. The first time I heard Danse by Debussy, I heard something in it that was akin to deja vu. This is the song that gave me strange dreams about the geometric worlds of Minkowski.


    It's as if my feelings and the music share the same resonance frequency, and they magnify each other until I explode within, and soar the heights of beauty.

    Note the shifts in mood and tempos, and the way in which it is open to interpretation. It can be heavy and foreboding, or light and ethereal...just like me.

    Tool - Reflection
    I have come curiously close to the end, down
    Beneath my self indulgent pitiful hole.
    Defeated I concede and move closer. I may find comfort here
    I may find peace within the emptiness.
    How pitiful. It's calling me

    And as I pull my head out - I am without one doubt
    Don't want to be down here - Soothing my narcissism
    I must crucify the ego - Before it's far too late
    I pray the light lifts me out
    Before I pine away.

    So crucify the ego - Before it's far too late
    To leave behind this place so - Negative and blind and cynical

    And you will come to find - That we are all one mind
    Capable of all that's - Imagined and all conceivable

    Just let the light touch you - And let the words spill through
    Just let them pass right through - Bringing out our hope and reason.
    Before we pine away.
    ~*~

    Tool - Lateralus
    Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
    Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
    Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines

    I embrace my desire to
    feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow, to feel inspired to fathom the power, to witness the beauty,
    to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral

    With my feet upon the ground I move myself between the sounds and open wide to suck it in. I feel it move across my skin.
    I'm reaching up and reaching out. I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
    And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
    We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been
    ~*~

    Tool - Forty-six & Two
    I've been crawling on my belly
    Clearing out what could've been.
    I've been wallowing in my own
    confused and insecure delusions
    For a piece to cross me over
    Or a word to guide me in.
    I wanna feel the changes coming down.
    I wanna know what I've been hiding in

    My shadow. My shadow.
    Change is coming through my shadow

    I wanna feel the change consume me,
    Feel the outside turning in.
    I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
    Cleansing I've endured within.

    I choose to live and to - Grow, take and give and to
    Move, learn and love and to - Cry, kill and die and to
    Be paranoid and to - Lie, hate and fear and to
    Do what it takes to move through

    I had to think about this one, music is very important to me. I choose three:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSR6ZzjDZ94

    This was me when I was younger. The lyrics are in the descripton. I have probably listened to this song more than any other song.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n-6uyMV9-0

    This is how I have tried to live my life. The lyrics are in the video. She is an Angel, I've seen her twice.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnLTuOj2G9Y

    This is where I am at now (sometimes). The lyrics are in the description. These guys are awsome writers.

    And this too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPOeLX4B55s&feature=related

    Depeche Mode Somebody... Album Some Great Reward. It is my all time favorite Album of theirs. The songs all speak to me as a whole and I love the fact that Martin Gore is singing this song.

    I want somebody to share
    Share the rest of my life
    Share my innermost thoughts
    Know my intimate details
    Someone who'll stand by my side
    And give me support
    And in return
    Shell get my support
    She will listen to me
    When I want to speak
    About the world we live in
    And life in general
    Though my views may be wrong
    They may even be perverted
    Shell hear me out
    And wont easily be converted
    To my way of thinking
    In fact shell often disagree
    But at the end of it all
    She will understand me
    Aaaahhhhh....

    I want somebody who cares
    For me passionately
    With every thought and
    With every breath
    Someone who'll help me see things
    In a different light
    All the things I detest
    I will almost like
    I don't want to be tied
    To anyone's strings
    I'm carefully trying to steer clear of
    Those things
    But when I'm asleep
    I want somebody
    Who will put their arms around me
    And kiss me tenderly
    Though things like this
    Make me sick
    In a case like this
    Ill get away with it
    Aaaahhhhh....

    Have you ever heard of Steve Roach?.. you might like this musician. He makes a true transcendence of music, life and thoughts are transformed into a single river of perception.

    I took it a bit literally when the OP asked for the song that describes you the most. Lyrics-wise, and to some degree, melody-wise, these two songs accurately sum up who I am. I alternate between big picture thinking, hopes, dreams, standing in there for someone and telling them they're going to be all right.... and then get hung up on "the little things."

    Child, don't you worry
    It's enough you're growing up in such a hurry
    Brings you down, the news they sell ya
    To put in your mind that all mankind is a failure

    But nobody knows
    What's gonna happen tomorrow
    We'll try not to show
    How frightened we are

    If you'll let me, I'll protect you
    However I can

    You've got to believe
    It'll be alright in the end
    You’ve got to believe
    It’ll be alright again

    Fighting because we're so close
    There are times we punish those who we need the most
    No we can't wait for a savior
    Only got ourselves to blame for this behavior

    And nobody knows (nobody knows)
    What's gonna happen tomorrow
    We try not to show (try not to show)
    How frightened we are

    It would seem lonely
    If you were the only
    star in the night

    You've got to believe
    It'll be alright in the end
    You've got to believe
    It'll be alright again

    And nobody knows
    What's gonna happen tomorrow (nobody knows)
    So don't let go
    Now we've come this far

    Hold my hand please
    Understand me
    You're never alone

    We've got to believe
    It'll be alright in the end
    (Nobody knows)
    We've got to believe
    It'll be alright my friend
    So don't let go

    And yes we believe
    It'll be alright again
    Don’t let go


    And then, on a bad day....

    (sorry for the idiot quality)

    Have you heard the news?
    Bad things come in twos
    But I never knew 'bout the little things

    Every single day
    things get in my way
    someone has to pay

    for the little things

    And I'm through with the stories
    And I'm sick of my shoes
    And the walking and the talking it's got nothing to do
    with the final solution
    It's a box full of tricks
    And I'm through with repairs when there's nothing to fix
    when there's nothing to fix
    when there's nothing to fix
    And it all comes down to.... you-u-u.

    Let the headlines wait
    Armies hesitate
    I can deal with fate
    but not the little things

    Armageddon may
    Arrive any day
    I can't get away
    from the little things

    With a pile of cares
    And a bucket of tears,
    I could look at the sunlight
    And I feel no fear.
    With a mountain of maybes
    And some Icarus wings,
    And I'm armed with delusions
    And one little thing,
    And that one little thing,
    And that one little thing,
    And it all comes down to you.

    Have you heard the news?
    Bad things come in twos
    But I never knew 'bout the little things
    Every single day
    things get in my way
    someone has to pay for the little things

    Melancholy - still my desire for thy precious tragedian wine...

    Sweep me away, into the vale of thine!
    Where sorrow's strong and so is joy.

    Melancholy - still my desire, O let my heart by thee inspire...

    O fill the air with thy sweet scent,
    let thy light, thy star crescent.

    Wherever she dwells I will bid a farewell sigh
    For she dwells with beauty - beauty that must die
    And deep inside me I will wait for her return
    To her enchanting, awe-inspiring flame I'll yearn

    O lust and rueful thought be mine,
    My soul enhanced, desires...
    Melancholy - my heart is thine

    Empyrium - Ode to Melancholy

    As of several months ago, I concider Perfume Tree to be my favorite band. I love every single one of their songs. The sound speaks to me in so many ways on such a deep level.

    I have heard of Steve Roach's name before, but I have not looked into his works. Judging by the last.fm genre tag, I might get into it. I will look into him in the future :)
