These are some song lyrics I like, as well as some quotes from other sources...

"Finished with my woman
'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
people think I'm insane
because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things
but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
if I don't find something to pacify
Can you help me occupy my brain?
I need someone to show me
the things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that
make true happiness, I must be blind
Make a joke and I will sigh
and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel
and love to me us so unreal
And so as you hear these
words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life
I wish I could but it's too late
- From Paranoid by Black Sabbath
One of my all time favorite theme songs...

"You take away
I feel the same
All the promises you made to me in vain
I lost myself inside your tainted smile again
You can feel my anger
You can feel my pain
You can feel my torment
Driving me insane
I can't fight these feelings
They will bring you pain
You can't take away
Make me whole again
- From Mud Shovel by Staind
Such an angry song...gotta love it!

"She calls me from the cold
Just when I was low, feeling short of stable
And all that she intends
And all she keeps inside, isn't on the label
She say's she's ashamed
And can she take me for a while
And can I be a friend, we'll forget the past
But maybe I'm not able
And I break at the bend
We're here and now, but will we ever be again
'Cause I have found
All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade
Away again
- From Shimmer, by Fuel
I know nothing about the band, but I like the song a lot, and that passage in particular.

"No life's so short it can't turn around
You can't spend your life living underground
For from above you don't hear a sound
And I'm out here
I don't understand what you want me to be
It's the dark you're
It's not who I am
But I know that is all that you see...
...If you take this chance
Our lives are this moment
The music, the dance
And here in this labyrinth
Of lost mysteries
I close my eyes on this night
And you're all that I see
You're all that I see"
- From Not What You See by Savatage
Savatage is one of my favorite bands. Apart from serious musical talent, all their lyrics tell a story...and more than a few of them seem to speak directly to me, or in this case, for me.

"Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free"
- From Fade To Black by Metallica
Well it was only a matter of time before I started quoting from Metallica, and what better to start with than with my favorite song of all-time, Fade To Black. Yes, it's a song about suicide. NO, I'm not...

"...You dance with the Devil, the Devil don't change. The Devil changes you."
- From the movie 8MM
I love that quote. Think about it...whatever "The Devil" represents to you, this quote is totally true.

"God, in whom I put no faith, Help Me! I do not believe in You - Did not, but if I am to accept such infinite Evil as I have become, then I pray Infinite Good exists as well, and that it has mercy on what remains of my soul"
- From Covenant With The Vampire by Jeanne Kalogridis.
I think it's a beautifully dark quote to start this page off with...
