    Name that tune day3. If you don't like it,

    don't play... Agony is the price That you'll pay in the end Domination consumes you Then calls you a friend It's a twisted fall Binds are like steel And manipulates the will to be And it's hard to see How soon we forget When there's nothing else Left to destroy It's a useless...

    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.
