    Its my escape. Especially metal music is the

    truths about the life. most of the lyrics -like from Korn's- defines my thoughts and feelings and what I am going through. I feel like I'm not alone when I listen it. I love music...

    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

    Pushed around and kicked around always a

    lonely boy. You were the one that they'd talk about around town as they put you down.And as hard as they would try they'd hurt to make you crybut you'd never cry to them just to your soul. No you'd never cry to them just to your soul

    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."

    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.

    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.
