mine comes from i dare you.

"decide which voice in your head can you keep alive."

or

"paint me you canvas so can become what you could never be."

i also like the end of remember me by journey were it says "Say you will, say you will" over and over.

and last one is from away from me by evanescence

i've woken now to find myself in the shadows of all i have created."

i like this one because i can relate to it cause there are times were torch 2 or well 3 now takes over my mind and i feel overwelmed and controlled by it. i say every word in that song relates to me.
