    This is a good one, but I prefer the Johnny Cash version better, it seems to take on a more somber tone when Johnny sings it.

    Ya this was my theme song toward the end though heroin wasn’t my thing the pain of addiction was.
    very depressing song

    YouTube – Johnny Cash Hurt

    YouTube – Morphine – Cure for Pain

    sorry, very bad recovery songs

    Cold world lyrics
    Xzibit Lyrics

    Justine, 19, just got clean
    Fresh outta rehab with self-esteem
    She ain’t felt this good in a while
    A new leash on life, a vibrant thang, a beautiful smile
    Used to run with a circle of friends, who was skeleton thin
    Sniff white lines off powerful men
    But see, all that’s a thang of the past, she got class
    And be damned if she’d let herself burn and crash
    She ain’t from money so she startin from scratch
    It’s hard working for scraps
    It take everything she got not to relaspe
    Locked down in 9 to 5, but at the 9 to 5
    She get sexually harrased and chastised
    Boss is a married man, she won’t touch him
    Frustrated angry man, she won’t **** him
    She’s out of her job, at Basket Cakes
    Least it came wit an 8, 2 lines to the face
    God Damn!

    [Chorus]
    It’s a cold, cold, world, and you know it
    Niggaz will lay you down and take your bread, yeah and you know it
    Only two choices, you can give it up or you can just die with it!
    Only two choices, you can give it up or you can just die with it, yeah

    [Verse 2: Xzibit]
    He was on his own, at a very young age
    When he learned from the streets, made everything change
    See he came up with hustlers, lost his religion
    It’s funny how money can make a ***** think he livin
    I ain’t talkin paper like Jigga or Dre
    It’s more like 7500, 9 ounces of lle’
    That’s what he say he can get for the flip, they thought the deal was legit
    But he stuck him and split, in deep ****
    Now his mother work for minimum pay
    Live a positive way, she the first one at church every Sunday
    Blind to the needs of her son, he’s a gatling gun
    In the streets, jackin niggaz for fun
    It’s a non-stop search through the hood, but can’t catch him
    They found out where mom stayed and went steppin
    The evil that men do, but still we continue
    With death and dishonor, for the all mighty dollar, it’s so cold

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3: Xzibit]
    He was 13, brought up in Baghdad
    Ate with his right and made money with his left hand
    Prayed to the East, 5 times daily
    His mother and father just had a new born baby
    Now his father was an Imam who carried the weight
    And built his family on 5 pillars of faith
    Never trippin off Western ways, it meant nada
    Pilgramige to Mecca to circle around Kabba
    300 miles away, British troops hit Basra
    His cousin waged jihad and died with honor
    He heard about the buildings on 9-11
    And a man named Bush on a search for weapons
    Now here come the U.S., to crush Saddam
    Wit 88 thousand tons of missile and bombs
    But his family’s too broke to move or find shelter
    If they all had to die, they would die together and that’s cold… damn

    Girl With a Problem
    NORTHERN PIKES

    She’s a girl with a problem
    She’s a girl with a problem
    And there ain’t no cure

    Well she works so hard and at the end of the day
    Needs a little somethin’ extra to take it all away
    They say love can conquer all and I wish it were true
    She’s a girl with a problem and there’s nothin’ I can do
    Nothin’ I can do

    You can bang your head against a brick wall
    You can lacquer Humpty Dumpty
    But you can’t prevent a fall
    Well bang, bang, bang, and there’s nobody home
    She’s a girl with a problem, she wants to be alone

    You can lie to me
    You can lie to yourself for a while
    ‘Til those lies turn into something else
    I will talk to you
    You will listen to me for a while
    Then you’ll turn your back and away you go
    Away you go

    Can somebody please help me
    ‘Cause it’s drivin’ me mad
    Sometimes she’s so good
    But sometimes she’s just so bad
    She thinks I don’t know but I’ve been there before
    And more than once I’ve thought about just
    Walkin’ out that door
    Walkin’ out that door

    Take me away
    I know nothing lasts forever
    Take me away

    Well nobody wants the gallows
    Nobody needs a noose
    So break those chains and let her run loose
    I love that little girl and I will love her ’til the end
    But she’s got a little problem
    And she needs to have a good friend

    You can lie to me
    You can lie to yourself for a while
    ‘Til those lies turn into something else
    I will talk to you
    You will listen to me for a while
    Then you’ll turn your back and away you go
    Away you go

    She’s a girl with a problem and it’s plain to see
    I try to help her out, she won’t listen to me
    She’s a girl with a problem
    She’s a girl with a problem
    She’s a girl with a problem
    She’s a girl with a problem and there ain’t no cure

    Here is a really good one by my favorite band Blue October.

    Overweight

    Ever carried the weight of another?
    For how long?
    I walk as far as they need to recover
    For how long?

    I want to carry a piece of who I was before
    So when I hit the wall, I really hit the wall
    I want to tear away the death again
    A whiter shade of ******* meth again
    I want to stick to clues, I want to come unglued
    I want to shape the world to fit the way you move
    Oh, should I listen for a dress size?

    I owned up, I’ve grown up, do you remember me?
    I showed up and so what if I’m the used to be
    I’m here to tell you that I’m sorry I was sorry
    But I’m happy that you’re happy
    This is no longer about me

    Trade rules, switch sides for your beautiful eyes
    Let him be you through your beautiful cries
    Let him hold you up so you can touch affordable skies
    Live your life just like a dream
    Without the pain of goodbyes
    Goodbye!

    Ever carried the weight of another?
    For how long?
    I walk as far as they need to recover
    For how long?

    I been a drunk disrespectful little street punk
    Unlock the back of my trunk
    You see, you take this bat
    And bash my head into the street again
    No-ones around so I keep beating it

    Pull my hair back, look me in the eye
    There’s a self-destructive meaning in the bleeding of a guy
    It’s the guilt of what reality has given me
    Making sense of all mistakes and my stupidity
    And when you’re sick you seem to think
    You’ve failed eternally

    And that the people you let in are only crumbling
    When you’re sick of thinking life in this recovery
    When my decision paved the road
    That lies in front of me

    So to my friends that even call but I don’t call back
    I want you deep inside my heart upon a hill
    It seems to hide sometimes and run away and wonder
    I’m really sick of saying sorry but I will

    Ever carried the weight of another?
    For how long?
    I walk as far as they need to recover
    For how long?

    But are we scared to take the ride?
    Or dare to look inside?
    I’m floating far away (far away)
    I’m floating far away (leaving home)
    I’m floating far away (so far away)
    I’m floating far away

    I want to learn to walk with others as an equal
    I want to treat the ones who love me with respect
    I want to tell the world I’ll give them all a piggyback
    And try to take away my negative effect
    I want to kiss the girl, I know I’ll never lie again
    I want to call my dad and tell him that I care
    I want to let my brother know
    He saved my life a thousand times
    Throughout the years he’s been my friend
    Who’s always there

    Ever carried the weight of another?
    For how long?

    Puddle of Mud has one called “Said”
    I love Massive Attacks song called “live with me” the video is about drinking and pain and just to be cautious here whiskey bottles are features so if that is a trigger don’t go there.

    So many of mine are already here! One of my favorites is “Lua” by Bright Eyes. It describes the sad, lonely part of the fast life when the party is over. Here’s my favorite part:

    I’m not sure what the trouble was,
    That started all of this.
    The reasons all have run away,
    But the feeling never did.
    It’s not something I would recommend,
    But it is one way to live,
    ‘Cause what’s so simple in the moonlight
    By the morning never is.

    Haven’t seen any Sublime on here… I can’t think of the titles, but they have/had quite a few good ones.
