Metal_Treasure

The Top Ten

1 Absolute horror, I cannot live, I cannot die, trapped in myself body my holding cell - One, Metallica
2 As Earth becomes a vacant lot, there's nothing left to heal. No colour in the skies, no one left to blame - Imperiled Eyes, Annihilator
3 Keep the world with all its sin, it's not fit for livin' in - Beyond The Realms Of Death, Judas Priest
4 Why am I loved only when I'm gone? - Bless the Child, Nightwish

6 No one but me can save myself, but it's too late - Fade to Black, Metallica
7 No sign of life did flicker in floods of tears she cried. All hope's lost, it can't be undone. They're wasted and gone - Nightfall, Blind Guardian
8 A single mother she is strained and she suffers. She slaves away her life in turmoil. A homeless man had it all and now has nothing. His spirit broken, plagued from injustice - Anthem, Iced Earth
9 Shame covers me, what was light has turned to dark. Pain torments me, where there once was something holy now beats my blackened heart - Sinner, Theocracy
10 ...like every hope I've ever had...like every dream I've ever known, It washed away in a tide of longing, a longing for a better world. - In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion, Agalloch

This song is so much underrated... - blasphemian
