The Top Ten

1 Wait - Earshot

I didn't expect it to be on this list and I planned on adding it Hahah.

"I'm forever alone" is a lyric in the song. - NuMetalManiak

"I can't wait for someone to hear me,
And wait for someone to touch me.
And wait forever to be told,
I'm forever alone."

Well, if I don't relate to this on a spiritual level, then I don't know what does. - Supernatural

2 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

"Loneliness is not a phase" - NuMetalManiak

5 Survivors? - 10 Years
6 Isolation - Alter Bridge
7 One-X - Three Days Grace
8 Like a Stone - Audioslave

Pure perfection. brought me to tears upon hearing it.


One of the greatest song in rock history!
loneliness... death... existence... and the absurd search for the meaning

9 Seasons to Cycles - 10 Years
10 Somewhere I Belong - Linkin Park

One of my favorite LP songs. This song might be depressing but at least "he" wants to break free of the isolation instead of just waisting away at his pity party. I think this song is more positive.

Awesome song. Great riffs, chorus and vocals.

"Dog night I'm so alone
A million miles out on my own
No one to talk no one to care
No, don't leave me stranded out here
Oh, it's just the loneliness I fear
Lonely window, fading star
Oh, I feel like I'm stranded out here
Same as before
Stranded..." - Metal_Treasure

Going' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone". - Metal_Treasure
