~Sullen Girl By Fiona Apple
"There is no pain, you are receding/A distant ship smoke on the horizon/You are only coming through in waves/Your lips move but I cant hear what you are saying/When I was a child/I caught a fleeting glimpse/Out of the corner of my eye/I turned to look but it was gone/I cannot put my finger on it now/The child is grown/The dream is gone/And I have become/Comfortably numb."
~Comfortably numb By Pink Floyd
"Kinda like a cloud I was up way up in the sky/i was feelings some feelings you wouldn't believe/Sometimes I can't believe them myself and I decided I was never coming down/Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye/It was just about to small to see/But I watched that dot way too long/It was pulling me down
Chorus: I was up above it/Now I am down in it
Well shut up so what what does it matter now/I was swimming in the haze now I crawl on my knees/And everything I never liked about you is kind of seeping into me/Try to laugh about it now but isn't it funny how everything works out(and guess the jokes on me...she said)
Chorus: I was up above it/ Now I am down in it
I used to be so big and strong/I used to know my right from wrong/ I used to never be afraid/I used to be somebody/I used to have something inside/Now just this hole thats open wide/ I used to want it all/I used to be somebody
I will cross my heart and hope to die/ But the needles already in my eye/ And all the worlds wieght is on my back and I dont even know why/ What I used to think was me is just a fading memory/I looked him right in the eye and said "goodbye"
Chorus: I was up above it/ Now I am down in it."
~Down In It By Nine Inch Nails
"And I don't want the world to see me/ Cause I don't think that they'd understand/ When everything's made to be broken/ I just want you to know who I am.
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming/ Or the moment of truth in your lies/ When everything feels like the movies/ Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive."
~Iris By The Goo Goo Dolls
