    Ever since I was little,

    music was my escape. I would sing and listen to the radio as much as possible. Something that happened to me when I was younger affected my self esteem to the point where I didn't sing around people much, afraid that they would make fun of me. What for you may ask? I was the...

    After a long day at work slaving to the putrid

    public I love going home and picking up my bass guitar and sawing away to some Cannibal Corpse.

    When I get away from everyone I get my

    headphones and put my music on the loudest it can. I listen to the lyrics and try to feel their emotions. I forget all about my life and just think about the song. It feels relaxing but also scary.

    My mind is drifting from thinking

    so much and I can't put into words the way I feel.. the best way for me to express myself is in the form of a song... I listen and let go.

    Floating Eargasm Trance.

    Sometimes when I feel sad or have a really bad day music is one of the few things that can make me snap out of it. I’m using a technique I use to call, as the title says, “floating eargasm trance” quite a silly name I know but I stick with it for now.What I do is basically...

    Listening to music has on many occasions saved

    me from feeling alone in the world, it is like a drug to me. Also, being able to make music has been such a great outlet for my emotions, etc. Music can benefit anyone <3

    2pac got me through some of the toughest times

    in my life, back when i was on the street. Feeling hopeless as hell.. i felt like i could relate to some of the lyrics, even though i wasnt living the thug life. Its funny how people can impact your life even if theyre gone and never met you before

    I love music. I have a different playlist

    for every mood I have. When I need to escape reality for a while I plug in my headphones and zone out. Sometimes it's accompanied by a book that goes along with the playlist and helps me escape further and others just with me staring at the ceiling and singing along. My iTunes...

    Bye Bye Miss American Pie...

    I escape into my world, my freedom, my passion when I listen to music.  It is an alternate sense of self one that is portrayed by someone else.  It helps to know you are not alone and music does that either fictitiously and realistically.

    Everyone has a way to escape from things.

    I use music(drawing and writing to but in focusing on music) to escape daily. Music is my life I don't think I can live without It.I think if I didn't listen to music I would be ruined. Music helps me in so many ways and helps me heal my emotional wounds that are still slowly...

    You ever listen to the lines of your favorite

    songs and just find yourself drifting away from the bad moments of reality, to a peaceful place, far away? I do this almost every day. I am bipolar and this form of therapy really motivates me to relax and just let go of what is bothering me at that moment. I guess it is my way...

    I do, you can just plug some headphones in

    when you're just done and need to get away. It blocks everything and everyone out, sometimes you can even get away from your own thoughts. As Mitch Lucker said "Keep listening to music, cause it gets you through everything, I promise."
