The Top TenXW
This song is very sad - it's about Layne's heroin addiction and what hell it is. The lines about "privacy" and "we chase misprinted lies" refer to magazine articles stating that he was dead due to Alice In Chains long hiatus. Layne felt trapped by his addiction. - Metal_TreasureV1 Comment
The Smashing Pumpkins- Today
"Today is the greatest day I've ever known; can't live for tomorrow, I might not have that long...I'll tear my heart out... Before I get out. Pink ribbon scars- that never forget- I tried so hard to cleanse these regrets. My angel wings were bruised and restrained" - Blazer350
It's a suicide song."He had enough, he couldn't take anymore". Very emotional song, great vocals. - Metal_Treasure
Black Sabbath- Solitude
"Oh where will I go to? And what will I do? Nothing can please me; only thoughts are of you. You had just laughed when I begged you to stay; but I've not stopped crying since you went away" - Blazer350
It's based on real life events - the singer & lyricist witnessed two car accidents that killed a boy and a girl in one week (same place! ). The ballad describes the second accident, with the girl. She and the boy who died before were soulmates. - Metal_Treasure
About a teen who committed suicide in class. "Jeremy spoke in class today... Try to forget this, try to erase this from the blackboard". - Metal_Treasure
About a father who is depressed (down) because his newborn child was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. "I don't wanna hold you, please tell me why, I don't wanna see you. 'Cause even your smile hurts, Oh, it hurts like hell... I don't wanna stand it anymore". - Metal_Treasure
One of the most intense metal songs ever (lyrics, music, vocals).
"These are my last words - I need to rest. In fear and anger, I'll lay down my head. A faithless spirit in a broken man... The hope became another lie". - Metal_Treasure
Some of the most sorrowful music and vocals I've ever heard. The song is about King Arthur's death. "My song of the end, I had seen it in my dreams, my song of the end. I can't stop the darkening clouds. I feel cold". - Metal_Treasure
It's about a man whose wife is terminally ill and he assists her suicide, and ends up killing himself.
The song is awesome, with great vocals. - Metal_Treasure
