I connect and understand them more... most dark lyrics are powerful and about something true, something real, something the band has gone through.
They stand out more then the things that most people seem to like, I've figured that out.
Your eyes look just like bullet holes
It must be all that crying
You haven't learned a thing at all
Moonlight has come and gone
The bloody writings on the wall
Chloroform girl, how have you been?
Don't let me catch you sleeping again
You're only alive...
I love the way you dominate and you violate me
I love you for every time you gave up on me
I love you for the way you look when you lie to me
I love you for never believing in what I say
I love you for never once giving me my way
I love you for never delivering me from pain
A legacy that rots with time
Cold before it hits the ground
I've been where those fears lie,
I've heard the screams from the inside
I know-- never look back
When memories fade to flashes
The trust-- was just a trap
Look for my picture in the ashes
Deceit riding under...
I recall when the bright light descends
Something takes possession over me
I remember when the nightmares began
On that cold night of December 26th
I don't know what it is but I lost all control
Can't you see I'm condemned by the past that
They close in my history I don't want...
And I don't want you and I don't need you
Don't bother to resist, or I'll beat you
It's not your fault that you're always wrong
The weak ones are there to justify the strong
The beautiful people, the beautiful people
It's all relative to the size of your steeple
You can't see...
Every time I see, My eyes, In my reflection... I can't help but be disappointed, At who I am... And everytime I feel, My skin, Breaking on metal... It helps me be quiet, And quiet's where I need to be... Scars on my skin... Scars on my heart... Scars on my soul... Reminding me...
I'm not much a poet, but a criminal
And you never had a chance
Love it, or leave it, you can't understand
A pretty face, but you do so carry on
I wouldn't front the scene if you paid me
I'm just the way that the doctor made me, on
And on[x3]Love is the red...
So you think you've won
Come take a walk inside
This enraged pissed off mind
It's calling for you
Feel Feel My Hatred
It bleeds down
On your faith
Lusted for so long
For the moment
Lying broken in a corner
Here it comes
Feel Feel your ending
It's so grim and cold here
I don't feel quite myself
I think I'm losing heart
I'm sick and tired of all those words
Voices in my head
I think I have become
Another suffering of my soul
You ask me how I'm feeling
Looking in my eyes
Hearing only what you want to hear
I'm holding my breath
You may find
That my appetite gets it's way
It keeps growing and growing
Before you know it
I'm a beast swallowing prey
And it is clear
It is clear
It's as clear as ******* hell
The more I wear off on you,
The more I seem to wear...
Dark horizons come close to me andMagic will be my keyI will travel through the gateTo be the finder of my fateNox, the night and key I will open your old mystery.Key of night, open up!Deep abysses I sink intoAnd behind the light I goMy long journey never ends,But I will...
You might not consider this dark compared to the other ones, but the theme behind it is.
Hero of War - Rise Against
He said "Son, have you seen the world?
Well, what would you say if I said that you could?
Just carry this gun and you'll even get paid."
I said "That sounds...
BASHING MY FACE INTO A WALL JUST TO SEE THE BLOOD RUN DOWN
THEY TRY TO RESTRAIN ME BUT HELL HAS UNLEASHED ITS DEMON NOW
I WATCH THE PLANET CRUMBLE IN MY HANDS AND LAUGH AS I LOOK DOWN
ILL BURN THEM ALL ALIVE I AM THE KING AND DEATH IS MY CROWN
Voices inside my head are making me go mad
Now I'm afraid to sleep from nightmares that I've had
I feel I'm on the edge, I need some kind of cure
Now I've gone and killed someone, I'm mentally disturbed!
They can't keep me locked away
My psychiatrist says I'm OK
They think that...
Don't lie; don’t lie to me now,
Now I'm erasing you,
Throwing those memories out,
Out to start something new,
I'm throwing those memories,
Darling don't lie to me.
Breathe in slowly now; darling don't lie to me,
Inhale truth I plead for you’re my only hope,
Don't lie, don't...
this sunny day down to the gutter
Just to get a change of pace
Things are getting worse, but I feel a lot better
And that's all that really matters to me
Well, Amy hit the atmosphere
Caught herself a rocket ride out of this gutter
And she's never coming back I fear...
it's a ******* death wish - MCR
For what you did to me
And what I'll do to you
You get what everyone else gets
You get a lifetime, go
Do you remember that day when we met
You told me this gets harder
Well, it did
Been holding on forever
My victims are rich or poor, young or old, strong or weak
I cause millions of accidents, I am cancer in your bones
I fathered the lie, twist what you say, speak not the truth
I am insidious, impartial, deep inside your chromosomes
I take what you love, and leave you in tears
IDENTITY MURDERED, MALICIOUS INTENT
I'M RECREATING MYSELF AT LAST
RISE UP FROM DESTRUCTION, START OVER AGAIN
REBORN, I'M NOW ERASING THE PAST
DID YOU THINK FOR A SECOND I
WOULDN'T BOTHER TO QUESTION WHY
YOU ALWAYS PUT ME LAST
CAN YOU LOOK STRAIGHT INTO MY EYES
I FEEL YOU STARE
WATCH ME NOT CARE
GLARE AT THE FREAK
YOU'VE NO CONTROL
FEEL YOUR EYES PROBING ME, JUDGEING ME
ONLY MAKES ME WANT TO EXPLODE, JUST EXPLODE
YOU DONT KNOW ME
BUT YOU FEAR ME
TAINTED WITH INK
RIDDLED WITH HOLES
STARING AND POINTING, STUPIDITY
Can I steal your mind?
And can I crawl down inside?
And when I am your child,
Can I feed in your eye?
And can I drink the air,
Down in your cold black lung?
And can I breath the sweet,
Sick and lonesome blood?
Love is everywhere.
No we will never escape.
I love you more than my...
Dark lyrics speak to me. Always hard and true. No matter what I feel theres a song that says it clearly. Though often the lyrics are dark the messages aren't (at least not always). The coolest songs, and the deepest poems. Dark lyrics are always the truest and still the most...
