1. "Over time, mistakes were few but I believe they're mine

Well I'm the one, I've faced the change I know it stands before me

Believe in me, cos I damn sure dont believe in you!"

Corrosion of Conformity - Seven Days

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you

No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun"

Our weary eyes still stray to the horizongo down this road we've been so many times"

Control of population everybody's been there and

To pick out my 10 fave of all time is near impossible. But i'll be posting some I like.

Generals gathered in their masses

Just like witches at black masses

Evil minds that plot destruction

Sorcerers of death's construction

In the fields the bodies burning

As the war machine keeps turning

Death and hatred to mankind

poisoning their brainwashed minds

Oh Lord yeah

Black Sabbath - War Pigs.

I can't make a top 10 but these lyrics are quite fitting to me















as you can see I am not a person that have a lot of friends, well I have a lot of friends but they accept my music, my classmates don't isn't that stupid....so you can say I'm a outsider... but there is no problem 'I think I'm Just happy'

By your resonating light

There's just too much that time cannot erase"

9-"Whatever happens I'll leave it all to chance

Another heartache, another failed romance

On and on, does anybody know what we are living for

Outside the dawn is breaking

But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free"

When no one I know can seem to help me now

Nick cave and the bad seeds - The mercy seat

"In Heaven His throne is made of gold

The ark of his Testament is stowed

A throne from which I'm told

All history does unfold.

Down here it's made of wood and wire

And my body is on fire

And God is never far away.

Into the mercy seat I climb

My head is shaved, my head is wired"

Jeff Buckley - Lover, you should've come over

"Lonely is the room the bed is made

The open window lets the rain in

Burning in the corner is the only one

Who dreams he had you with him

My body turns and yearns for a sleep

That won't ever come

It's never over,

My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder

It's never over,

all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her...

It's never over,

All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter...

It's never over,

She's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever..."

Soundgarden - Outshined

"Im looking california and feeling minnesota"

The smiths - Nowhere fast

"And when I’m lying in my bed

I think about life

And I think about death

And neither one particularly appeals to me"
