Yep. Maybe not with the 2 songs I posted here (and which I feel are really close to me), but with some other I do think: Wow, that's kinda bleak to totally relate to it.

So is there any fucked-up club I can join?

"Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone" by The Walkmen

Because he knows
Our Romeo,
He can't climb back.
He swings in loopholes.
When he goes through the air
Their vengeance will stretch out.

I made the best of it.
I made the best of it.
I made the best of it.

This velvet rope
Has fell before
In vain.
Clothing crashing the floor.
Insane.
Worse than once thought.

I made the best of it.
I made the best of it.
I made the best of it.

I made the best of it.
I made the best of it.



[I have no idea what it means, but it's a cooooool song]

Theme from Shaft

I change all of the "SHAFTS" to my real name, and it's pure genius.

Mine is too, sort of. I can certainly relate to most of the lyrics, and the song carries a lot of memories for me.

Acrobat is probably ultimately my theme song in that it's everything I've ever felt, really. Not just the lyrics, but the music...it's so intense. There is a real rage in that song, but there is hope too. Both Acrobat and Gone have this prevailing feeling of "it's not over yet, something is coming." I guess that's where I am in life right now... waiting for something to happen. Looking, even.

Another song that I can really relate to is "Nothing Gets Crossed Out" by Bright Eyes. Emo I know, but it fits. Conor Oberst is possibly my favourite lyricist ever.

Well, the future's got me worried, such awful thoughts
My head's a carousel of pictures
The spinning never stops
I just want someone to walk in front
And I'll follow the leader
Like when I fell under the weight of a schoolboy crush
Started carrying her books and doing lots of drugs
I almost forgot who I was, but came to my senses
Now I'm trying to be assertive, I'm making plans, want to rise to the occasion, yeah, meet all their demands
But all I do is just lay in bed and hide under the covers
Yeah, I know I should be brave
But I'm just too afraid of all this change
And it's hard to focus through all this doubt
I keep making this "To Do" list but nothing gets crossed out
Working on the record seems pointless now
When the world ends, who's gonna hear it?
Well I'm trying to take some comfort in written words
Yeah, Tim I heard your album and it's better than good
When you get off tour I think we should hang and black out together
'Cause I've been feeling sentimental for days gone by
All those summers singing, drinking, laughing, wasting our time
Remember all those songs and the way we smiled, in those basements made of music
But now I've got to crawl
To get anywhere at all
I'm not as strong as I thought

So when I'm lost in a crowd
I hope that you'll pick me out
Oh, how I, I long to be found
The grass grew high, I laid down
Now I, wait for a hand to lift me up, help me stand
I've been laying so low
Don't wanna lay here no more
Don't wanna lay here no more
Don't wanna lay here no more
Don't wanna lay here no more
No more...more...

But if everything that happens is supposed to be
And it's all predetermined, can't change your destiny
I guess I'll just keep moving, someday, maybe, I'll get to where I'm going


Popmartijin... I love the lyrics to Magic and Loss, I should get some Lou Reed stuff...I've got plenty of Velvet Underground , but nothing of Reed's solo career.
