The Top Ten

1 One - Metallica, Final Verse

Imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

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! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

2 Hallowed be thy name - Iron Maiden, 2nd Verse

When the priest comes to read me the last rites
I take a look through the bars at the last sights
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me

Can it be that there's some sort of error
Hard to stop the surmounting terror
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming
It's not easy to stop from screaming
But words escape me when I try to speak
Tears fall, but why am I crying?
After all, I'm not afraid of dying
Don't I believe that there never is an end - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3 The Spirit Carries On - Dream Theater, 1st Verse
4 Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards, 1st Verse
5 Don't Talk to Strangers - Dio, 1st Verse

Don't talk to strangers
Cause they're only there to do you harm
Don't write in starlight
'Cause the words may come out real
Don't hide in doorways
You may find the key that opens up your soul
Don't go to Heaven cause it's really only Hell
Don't smell the flowers
They're an evil drug to make you lose your mind
Don't dream of women
'Cause they'll only bring you down

Lyrics: Dio (R.I.P.) - Metal_Treasure

6 Poor Man's Crusade - Demons & Wizards, 1st Verse

"The Holy Ghost can't save you anymore
Your soul's condemned to burn in Hell
Damned for all time".

So spoke the noble one
He's convinced us all, he's a gifted man
Though he will slaughter in the name of Christ

Holy and bright
He's a devil in disguise
Protector of the cross
Beware of the snake.

Lyrics: Hansi K├╝rsch - Metal_Treasure

7 Art Of Life - X-Japan, Final Verse

I believe in the madness called "Now"
Time goes flowing, breaking my heart
Wanna to live
Can't let my heart kill myself
Still I haven't found what I'm looking for
Art of life
I try to stop myself
But my heart goes to destroy the truth
Tell me why
I want the meaning of my life
Do I try to live, Do I try to love

Art of life
An Eternal Bleeding heart
You never wanna breathe your last
Wanna live
Can't let my heart kill myself
Still I'm feeling for
A Rose is breathing love
in my life

A 34 minutes masterpiece, perfectly closed into such a masterful Verse! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8 Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth, 2nd Verse

Upon my podium, as the
Know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement
Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier
Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks
Behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me
Some people live to destroy me
Either way they die - CastlevaniaFanboy128

9 Down With The Sickness - Disturbed, 2nd Verse

It's the 3rd Verse, that really sticks with me, but I found this one to represent the entire band as a howl better! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

10 Fade To Black - Metallica, Final Verse

No one but me
Can save myself
But it's too late
Now I can't think
Think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though
It never existed
Death greets me warm
Now I will just say goodbye
Bye... - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Contenders

11 Iron Man - Black Sabbath, 3rd Verse

Now the time is here
For iron man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge

Classic! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

12 Wrong Side Of Heaven - Five Finger Death Punch, 2nd Verse

I heard from god today and she sounded just like me
What have I done and who have I become
I saw the devil today and he looked a lot like me
I looked away
I turned away
Arms wide open
I stand alone
I'm no hero and I'm not made of stone

Right or wrong
I can hardly tell
I'm on the wrong side of heaven and the righteous side of hell
The wrong side of heaven and the righteous side the righteous side of hell - CastlevaniaFanboy128

13 The Glass Prison - Dream Theater, Final Verse

Way off in the distance I saw a door
I tried to open
I tried forcing with all of my will and still
The door wouldn't open

Unable to trust in my faith
I turned and walked away
I looked around, felt a chill in the air
Took my will and turned it over

The glass prison which once held me is now gone
A long lost fortress
Armed only with liberty
And the key of my willingness

Fell down on my knees and prayed
"Thy will be done"
I turned around, saw a light shining through
The door was wide open - CastlevaniaFanboy128

14 Helter Skelter - The Beatles, Final Verse
15 Thorn - Blind Guardian, 1st Verse

"A black swan's born that night
The misty pond's got a new king
Got a new king

So what can we do with our lives
When it all begins?
It's hard and it's cruel
Will grace die in pain?
Will light ever rise again?

Oh, I'm trapped in darkness
Still I reach out for the stars
I'm moving in silence
I leave it all far behind"

Lyrics: Hansi Kursch. A very sad, unique and beautiful song with one of the best and most intense vocal performances from Hansi. Awesome low notes. - Metal_Treasure
