Single Status Update
Pick a cd by a band that you like that you feel you can relate to most. List each song and next to it reflect a line from the song to an event in your life or your feelings on something, or describe why that song fits you (atleast a sentence for each song)
01 Great Big White World - I love this as the opening track on this cd. When I'm feeling down or in a bad mood, I put this on knowing it'll play first. It expresses how I feel..."It's a great big white world, we're all drained of our colors, we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another", which describes the way I feel about the cold heartedness and how uncaring most people are anymore.
02 The Dope Show - Describes holly wood perfectly and fame. "They love you when you're on all the covers. When you're not, they love another.."
03 Mechanical Animals - Makes me think of how superficial everything is now. Also, it has alot of lines that I find reflect on the way I've felt before. Basically the entire song.
04 Rock is Dead - Well, I don't know why this particular one fits me. Maybe the line "sell all the living for more safer dead", being that no one cares about the consequences of their actions anymore, and people would be better off, and safer, dead. And yes, "God is in the TV", because parents let the television babysit their kids for them.
05 Disassociative - This song, to me, reflects my everlasting plea to escape everything. "I can tell you what to say in space, that the earth is too gray" and "The world was killing me", because it's true, it's so very true. "I can never get out of here, I don't wanna just float in fear" reminds me of the fact that life seems to never go anywhere.
06 The Speed of Pain - A fundamental rule in my life: "When you hate it, always seems to last, when you love it, never seems to last." Anything good that happens in my life never does last, but all the negative and bad things remain. "I can't lay on my back, because of the knife for everyday that I've known you" describes the back-stabbing from the start that I've endured with people I thought were friends in my life.
07 Posthuman - "God is a number you cannot count to." It's true. God is the ammount of people who believe in him. If no one believes in him, then he's not real. "God is just a statistic", by how many people believe in him and how many people don't.
08 I Want to Disappear - "I'm a million different things, not one, you know." There aren't many people that know me, and alot of the people that think they do really only think they do, because they don't.
09 I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me) - "Raised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all" reminds me of the fact that the parents and school systems don't teach kids shit anymore. All teachers care about are their paychecks, and all parents care about is themselves. Besides, as long as we don't know what's going on around us, we're no threat to people who are doing wrong, eh?
10 New Model, No.15 - "I'm as fake as a wedding cake" describing superficial people again. "Pitifully predictable, correctly politically" describes so many people I know. Never can be different, they always have to be the same and fit in, fall in line with conformity and find happiness in slavery.
11 User Friendly - Well, I'm User Friendly, as long as you don't screw me over :P
12 Fundamentally Loathesome - "I just suffer, and I hope to die someday." True. "When I hate it, I know I can feel, but when you love you know it's not real." That'e experience talking, after loving people and finding you didn't love them as you thought you did, or they fuck you over in the end. "Shoot myself to love you, If I loved myself, I'd be shootinig you." God...I've ended up feeling this way about so many people... this is my favorite line off of the entire cd.
13 The Last Day on Earth - "And now I've found you, but it's almost too late." Yeah, something always comes up, and it ends up a temporary thing. It sucks. So much.
14 Coma White - "'Cause you were from the perfect world, the world that threw me away today." People just throw you away like trash, and treat you like it. Everyone lives in their perfect little world, where nothing can go wrong, and they don't care about anyone else so long as they're happy. "A Pill to make you numb, A pill to make you dumb, A pill to make you anybody else, But all the drugs in thise world, won't save her from herself." That's the way I feel about people who do drugs, drink, or even smoke. Used to, I never saw a reason to it. One day my ex-best friend Tim told me "It's because it makes you feel like you're in control, and because it takes your mind off of how fucked your life really is." Well, what the song said was true. You can do that shit all you want, but it's not gonna make it all go away. It'll always still be there when you come back to reality, or when the pot, cig, or you get over your hang over the next morning from getting drunk. All just a temporary thing to escape, but it doesn't last forever.
