The Top Ten
Three Days Grace- Never Too Late
"This world will never be what I expected, and if I don't belong, who would have guessed it? "
"Even if I say, 'It'll be alright' still I hear you say you want to end your life" - Blazer350
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_TreasureV 1 Comment

Watch the video and you'll understand.
Has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell
I cannot live
I cannot die" - Metal_Treasure
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
The Amity Affliction- Pittsburgh
"I've been searching for an exit, but I'm lost inside my head, where I spend every waking moment wishing I was dead" - 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
A suicide song.
"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
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye" - Metal_Treasure
Korn- Falling Away From Me
"Day is here fading; that's when I would say I flirt with suicide, sometimes kill the pain. I can always say, 'It's gonna be better tomorrow' Falling away from me... Life's falling away from me... Beating me down" - Blazer350
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
Throughout his life the same
He's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me - 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
Bullet for my Valentine- All these things I hate
"Torn apart at the seams, all my dreams turn to tears; I'm not feeling this situation. Run away try to find a safe place you can hide; it's the best place to be when you're feeling like me" - Blazer350
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
Gary Jules- Mad World
"I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad. The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had. I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take, but when people run in circles it's a very, very mad world" - Blazer350
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
Amazing music and vocals.
"She's happy and in love, in love with my best friend. What makes it hurt so bad is that I love them both and they will never know for love I sold my soul". - Metal_Treasure
A greater darkness for all it's worth
A friend so young who's life was cut
We drink the rain to clear our throats
We drink the poison to make it go - Metal_Treasure
