    How Im Feeling

    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest. I keep searching for something that I never seem to find. But maybe I won’t, because I left it all behind. Now I’m stuck with this, and that’ll never change...

    Sometimes Yes Sometimes No

    It can help but its not always what helps. I listen to music all the time, though my ipod has pretty much died on me, and normally blaring it as loud as it can go makes me calm down. At least for the most part it does.

    Mixed Emotions

    Button your lip baby Button your coat Lets go out dancing Go for the throat Lets bury the hatchet Wipe out the past Make love together Stay on the path Youre not the only one With mixed emotions Youre not the only ship Adrift on this ocean

    I Just Listen To It

    I just listen to songs I love in a moment when I was upset, in love, excited and so forth. When I was heartbroken, I listen to the songs with lyrics I can relate to.

    When I Get Angry Or Depressed....

    when i get angry or depressed i listen to metal. but not just any metal, christian metal. it really helps calm me down for some reason, especially three bands : demon hunter, disciple, and chevelle. both sound so different, but they give me the same result.

    Listening to music, I find, is the simplist way to deal with my emotions. I connect to it, I relate to it, and it comforts me.

    I Am So Emotional

    I love listening to new age music, soft instrumentals that will help relax my mind. I am so emotional and it helps when I listen to this kind of music, it's very comforting.

    I listen to quite a lot of depressing music.

    Metal is in my blood, bones, flesh....it is me. I feel the emotions through each song; I appreciate both the sound and the lyrics. I often analyze songs, and memorize every bit of each song until I can even hum the backing instruments! (:
