I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens ev'ry day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it has been painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Stone Sour- Bother

Wish I was too dead to cry
My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater

You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

Wish I was too dead to care
If indeed I cared at all
Never had a voice to protest
So you fed me **** to digest
I wish I had a reason;
my flaws are open season
For this, I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying

You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

(Solo: Corey)

Wish I'd died instead of lived
A zombie hides my face
Shell forgotten
with its memories
Diaries left
with cryptic entries

And you don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold onÖ
I'll never live down my deceit

Only in Dreams - Weezer

You can't resist her
She's in your bones
She is your marrow
And your ride home
You can't avoid her
She's in the air (in the air)
In between molecules
Of oxygen and carbon dioxide

Only in dreams
We see what it means
Reach out our hands
Hold on to hers
But when we wake
It's all been erased
And so it seems
Only in dreams

You walk up to her
Ask her to dance
She says, "Hey baby
I just might take the chance"
You say, "It's a good thing
That you float in the air (in the air)
That way there's no way
I will crush your pretty
Toenails into a thousand pieces."

Only in dreams
We see what it means
Reach out our hands
Hold on to hers
But when we wake
It's all been erased
And so it seems
Only in dreams


Here's another...

No Regrets - Robbie Williams

Tell me a story
Will we all change
And we'd live our lives together
Another strange
I didn't lose my mind
It was mine to give away
Couldn't stay to watch me cry
You didn't have the time
So I softly slip away

No regrets, they don't work
No regrets now, they only hurt
Sing me a love song (Sing me a love song)
Drop me a line (Drop me a line)
Suppose it's just a point of view
But they tell me I'm doing fine

I know from the outside
We looked good for each other
Felt things were going wrong
When you didn't like me mother

I don't what to hate
But that's all you've left me with
A bitter aftertaste
And a fantasy of how we all could live

No regrets, they don't work
No regrets now, they only hurt
(we've been told you stay up late)
I know they're still talking
(you're far too short to carry weight)
The demons in your head
(returnthe videos they're late)
If I could just stop hating you
(goodbye)
I feel sorry for us instead

Remember the photographs,
Insane
The one where we all laughed so lame
We were having the time of our lives
Well, thank you,
It was real blast

No regrets, they don't work
No regrets now, they only hurt
Write me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it's just a point of view
But they tell me I'm doing fine

Everything I wanted to be
Everytime I walked away
Every time you told me to leave
I just wanted to stay
Everytime you looked at me and
Everytime you smiled
I felt so vacant when you treat me like a child
I love the way we used to laugh
I love the way we used to smile
Often I sit down and think of you for a while
And then it passes me by
And I think of someone else instead
I guess the love we once had
Is officially dead

Hmm, this thread is vaguely familiar....*remembers Darky's thread from the swamp*

I'd throw another set up, but just look for Say it Ain't So by Weezer. :)

All American Rejects- Swing Swing

Days swiftly come and go.
I'm dreaming of her
She's seeing other guys
Emotions they stir
The sun is gone.
The nights are long
And I am left while the tears fall.

Did you think that I would cry,
on the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
being alone?
I'll find someone new

Swing, Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again.

Wish cast into the sky
I'm moving on
Sweet beginnings do arise
She knows I was wrong
The notes are old,
They bend, they fold
and so do I to a new love.

Bury me
(you thought your problems were gone)
Carry me
(away. away, away...)

Amen brother!! \m/ |o_o| \m/

i dont like Cradle of Filth to much, but they cover of Hallowed be thy name is wonderful

these days im listenint this song:

Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows:

This Profane Finality

Bury me deep in the blackest earth...
drunken on maggots, home of thousand worms!
Nail me up into the blackest coffin
and bed me down into the deepest pit!
Shrouded I am waiting for my cold friends,
the final beasts...
You, living off the lonely dead,
the moist and voluntary feast.
Sweet Death, come kiss me softly
and please, please... open the door for me!
Itís just another grateful dead,
so, please, let me enter and stay.
Pain and torment, do what you want with me,
I donít care..., I do no longer care.

Like ancient wraiths they seem to be,
the others come to welcome me.
"Receive the new disciple in the dance of
dread!",
soulless figures swaying to the beautiful sounds of death...
Forever.

Don't you ever wonder why
nothing ever seems to change
If it does, it's for the worse,
seems it's just a modern curse
Sometimes when I take a peek
outside of my little cage
Everyone looks so asleep
will they die before they wake
and Hey,
don't you know
We're just products of our time
and Hey,
what do you say
Show me yours,
I'll show you mine

Better dumb and happy than
smart and without any friends
Better cute and better loud,
better join up with the crowd
Keep up or be left behind,
there's a dust storm in my mind
Seems I can't see straight these days
doesn't matter anyway
and Hey, don't you know
(Ooh, la la-la)
We're just products of our time
(La la la la la-la la la)
and Hey, what do you say
(Ooh, la la-la)
Show me yours,
I'll show you mine
(La la la la la-la la la)

Hey, what do you say
Hey, what do you say
Please don't ever

Oh, God, here's that question now
The one that makes me go insane
I'd gladly tear my heart out
If you never, never, never,
never Change

Do you want to change?
Do you want to change right now?
Do you want to change?

I like my stupid life
just the way it is
And I wouldn't even change it
for a thousand flying pigs
And I like you
just the way you are

I like your face
just the way it is
And I wouldn't even trade it
for a herd of screaming kids
And I like you
just the way you are

I like you,
though you may not like me back
I would dazzle you with brilliance
if I only had the knack
Cause I like you
just the way you are

I like this life
just the way it is
And the castles all around me
have been melting now for years
And it kills my brain to think
of all the time I wasted here
All the effort, sweat,
and broken hearts,
the screaming and the tears

And I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again...
I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again
I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again
I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again

Floating in a pool of mud,
trying to get back where I was
and I don't really care
Got a little talking-to
by the mirror in my room
and I don't really care
Whispering voices from the dead
come from underneath my bed
and I don't really care

I like my stupid life
just the way it is
And the chaos that surrounds me
like a flock of screaming pigs
And it hurts my brain to think
of all the stupid things I've said
And if I could change the future,
I would change the past instead

And I'm dreamin' again
And I'm dreamin' again
And I'm dreamin' again
And I'm dreamin' again

(Speaking)
Woman: Well, well who else did you know?
What other famous people did you know?
Man: Oh, uh, you name 'em.
Woman: Yes,
Man: I went to, uh South American
with Richard Nixon.
Woman: Oh, yes?
Man: I went to uh...
South America...
Woman: Richard Nixon!?
Man: And it..
and it really wasn't that funny.
Heh...

Woman 2: Did you see the Joneses?

Baby, sometimes I worry 'bout you
Sometimes you're so far away,
tell me what to do
and I say Baby,
sometimes I worry 'bout you
Sometimes I just can't believe
everything you do,
I say Baby,
sometimes I worry 'bout you
Every day I feel the same,
don't you feel it too,
I say Baby,
sometimes I worry 'bout me
(I've been feeling too much pain)
(sometimes I worry about me)
Seems I'm falling down a lot
in between the scenes,
I say Baby,
(Seems I'm falling down a lot)
(never change, never change)
sometimes I worry 'bout me
(Don't you ever wonder why)
(nothing ever seems to change)
Getting harder all the time,
harder now to see,
I say Baby,
(Getting harder all the time)
(never change, never change)
sometimes I worry 'bout me
(Sometimes when I take a peek)
(sometimes I worry about me)
Light another cigarette,
have another dream
(Light another cigarette)
(never change, never change)

It's the same thing every day
Nothing ever seems to change
and I...

Do you really want to,
really want to
Hey, what do you say
Hey, what do you say
Please don't ever

Testaments and growing pains
Tranquilizers for the soul
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Evolution's cruelest joke
Why is everyone upset?
I once knew, but I forget
Something happened, something strange
Something, it appears has changed

and Hey,
don't you know
(Ooh la la-la)
We're just products of our time
and Hey,
what do you say
(La la la la la-la la la)
If I show you yours,
will you show me mine
(La la la la la-la la la la-la la la)

Hey, what do you say
Hey, what do you say
Please don't leave
Oh, God, here's that question now
The one that makes me go insane
I'd gladly tear my heart out
If you never change, never change
Never change, never change
Never, never, never,
never Change

*the song is like 15minutes long
and has so many false endings,
and bridges, tempo swings etc
it is like way cool*
