    Hi sandbox,
    Good thread! How about “Mr. Brownstone” by Guns n Roses, “There She Goes” by the La’s, “Dead Flowers”, Rolling Stones. Others that come to mind are “Golden Brown” by the Stranglers, “Heroin, She Said” by Wolfsheim, “The Needle and the Damage Done” Neil Young and Velvet Undergrounds “Heroin”
    Hope these have been of some help.
    Best Wishes
    Northsider

    From the looks of some of these tunes, I can see I have found a home.

    Check out Life is Beautiful Bu Nikki Sixx.

    You can’t quit until you try
    You can’t live until you die
    You can’t learn to tell the truth until you learn to lie
    You can’t breathe until you choke
    You gotta laugh when you’re the joke?It’s nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    I know some things that you don’t?I’ve done things that you won’t
    It’s nothing like a trail of blood to find your way back home
    I was waiting for my hearse
    What came next was so much worse
    It took a funeral to make me feel alive

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    Alive
    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    Tim McGraw- Ive Got Friends that Do
    (This is for the lost junkie
    who spends all his hard earned money…on something that he hates)

    And I dunno who sings it, but the words are:
    I dare you to walk
    I dare you to move
    Dare you to pick yourself up off the floor.

    Somethin’ like that.:Dance7:

    The Outsider

    Help me if you can
    It’s just that this, this is not the way I’m wired
    So could you please,

    Help me understand why
    You’ve given in to all these
    Reckless dark desires

    You’re lying to yourself again
    Suicidal imbecile
    Think about it, put it on the faultline
    What’ll it take to get it through to you precious
    Over this. Why do you wanna throw it away like this
    Such a mess. I don’t want to watch you.

    Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
    What’s your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

    Medicated, drama queen, picture perfect, numb belligerence
    Narcissistic, drama queen, craving fame and all its decadence

    Lying through your teeth again
    Suicidal imbecile
    Think about it, put it on the fautline
    What’ll it take to get it through to you precious
    Go with this, why do you wanna throw it away like this
    Such a mess, I don’t wanna watch you…

    Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
    What’s your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

    They were right about you
    They were right about you

    Lying to my face again
    Suicidal imbecile
    Think about it put it on the fautline
    What’ll it take to get it through to you precious
    Over this, why do you wanna throw it away like this
    Such a mess, Coalesce, Coalesce

    Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet at a time
    What’s your hurry, everyone will have his day to die
    If you choose to pull the trigger, should your drama prove sincere,
    Do it somewhere far away from here

    Name of the band is “A Perfect Circle”

    Name of the cd, you have to love it, “The 13th Step”

    yo folks ..
    new to the site ..
    thought id share this with ya ‘ ..by Ben Harper .
    (check him out …he has helped me hold on tight thru some rough times ..
    “Better Way”
    I’m a living sunset
    Lightning in my bones
    Push me to the edge
    But my will is stone

    Fools will be fools
    And wise will be wise
    But i will look this world
    Straight in the eyes

    What good is a man
    Who won’t take a stand
    What good is a cynic
    With no better plan

    Reality is sharp
    It cuts at me like a knife
    Everyone i know
    Is in the fight of their life

    Take your face out of your hands
    And clear your eyes
    You have a right to your dreams
    And don’t be denied

    I believe in a better way
    ..
    peace & blessings
    A.

    Pink-Who Knew

    She decided she didn’t want drugs to be part of her life, but she had a lot of friends who still used. This one was about a friend of hers who OD’d, I believe.

    Sweet Surrender by John Denver

    Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
    Travelled by many remembered by few
    Looking for something that I can believe in
    Looking for something that I’d like to do with my life

    Theres nothing behind me and nothing that ties me
    To something that might have been true yesterday
    Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more
    Than enough to just be there today

    And I dont know what the future is holding in store
    I dont know where Im going, Im not sure where Ive been
    There’s a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
    My life is worth the living, I dont need to see the end

    Sweet, sweet surrender
    Live, live without care
    Like a fish in the water
    Like a bird in the air

    Words and music by john denver

    The Death of Me by City and Colour, seriously if you don’t even listen to the song just read these lyrics it’s awesome

    Do I have nothing good left to say?
    Do I need whiskey to start fueling my complaints?
    People love to drink their troubles away.
    Sometimes I feel that I’d be better off that way.

    ‘Cause maybe then I could sleep at night.
    I wouldn’t lie awake until the morning light.
    This is something that I’ll never control.
    My nerves will be the death of me, I know.
    I know, I know.

    So here’s to living life miserable.
    And here’s to all the lonely stories that I’ve told.
    Maybe drinking wine will validate my sorrow.
    Every man needs a muse and mine could be the bottle.

    Maybe then I could sleep at night.
    I wouldn’t lie awake until the morning light.
    This is something that I’ll never control.
    My nerves will be the death of me, I know.

    Finally, I could hope for a better day.
    No longer holding on to all the things that cloud my mind.
    Maybe then the weight of the world wouldn’t seem so heavy.
    But then again I’ll probably always feel this way.

    At least I know I’ll never sleep at night. (Sleep at night)
    I’ll always lie awake until the morning light. (Til the morning light)
    This is something that I’ll never control.
    My nerves will be the death of me.
    My nerves will be the death of me.
