You can post songs that you can relate to, even if it has no lyrics.


Here's one that I can relate to at times:

https://youtu.be/kXYiU_JCYtU

Numb: Linkin Park

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
I don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you
Can't you see that you're smothering me?
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control
'Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
And every second I waste is more than I can take!
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you
And I know I may end up failing too
But I know you were just like me with someone disappointed in you
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be

The Outside: Red

(except the screaming possibly)

What if I'm not the same?
What if I never let go of the blame?
What if you drag me back again?
What if I let you just pretend?
I erase this memory
I escape this gravity
Is that how I used to be?
Is that the price of my identity?
I'm standing on the outside
I'm lookin' in on what you can't hide
I'm dying on the inside
Cause now I can see the lies
From the outside
What if I'm still ashamed?
What if I can't let go of the pain?
What if I have something to lose?
What if I've got nothing left to prove?
I replace this life you stole
I erase the world I know
What if you were always wrong?
And what if I said I knew it all along?
I'm standing on the outside
I'm lookin' in on what you can't hide
I'm dying on the inside
Cause now I can see the lies
From the outside
I'm not you!
I will never!
I'm not you!
I won't let you pull me through!
I'm standing on the outside
I'm lookin' in on what you can't hide
I'm dying on the inside
Cause now I can see the lies
From the outside
I'm standing on the outside
I'm lookin' in on what you can't hide
I'm dying on the inside
Cause now I can see your lies
From the outside

Hate Myself:NF

I don't see you like I should
You look so misunderstood
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Pray to God with my arms open
If this is it, then I feel hopeless
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Yeah, late nights are the worst for me
They bring out the worst in me
Mind runnin', got me feelin' like it hurts to think
If this is all that I wanted, I don't want it, gotta be more for me
All the core beliefs
And every mornin' I wake up and feel like I ain't my worth 'cause I'm at war with peace
Or go to Hell, welcome to the corpse of me
Look at the body like you ain't nothin' but poor and weak
It's kinda weird
Lately I been feelin' like the only way for me to get away is if I pour the drink
That's more deceit, more defeat
Is this really what I'm born to be?
That's what you get for thinkin' you're unique
So poor, but I'm so wealthy
Need help, but you can't help me
What else can the world sell me?
Tell me lies, I still buy 'em like they goin' outta stock
But it's not healthy
I don't see you like I should
You look so misunderstood
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Pray to God with my arms open
If this is it, then I feel hopeless
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Yeah, late nights get the best of me
They know how to get to me
Suicide thoughts come and go like a guest to me
But I don't wanna die, just wanna get relief
So don't talk to me like you think I'm so successful
What is success when hope has left you
I am not a spokesman, I'm a broken record
Sick of doin' interviews 'cause I hate myself, agh!
Come across like it's so easy
But I feel like you don't need me
When I feel like you don't need me
Then I feel like you don't see me
And my life has no meaning, drain me
Hands out, tryna ask for love
But when I get it, I just pass it up
Throw it away and think about it later
Diggin' through the trash for drugs
Wish I could give you what you needed, but I can't
I'm scared because
I don't see you like I should
You look so misunderstood
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Pray to God with my arms open
If this is it, then I feel hopeless
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
I walk through the ashes of my passions
Reminiscin' with the baggage in my casket
Get lost in the questions I can't answer
Can't stand who I am, but it don't matter
We scream to be free, but I stay captured
Knee-deep in defeat of my own actions
Feel weak, but the peace that I keep lackin'
Keeps speakin' to me, but I can't have it
But I can't have it
Keeps speakin' to me, but I can't have it
But I can't have it
Keeps speakin' to me, but I can't have it
I don't see you like I should
You look so misunderstood
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Pray to God with my arms open
If this is it, then I feel hopeless
And I wish I could help
But it's hard when I hate myself
Hate myself
But it's hard when I hate myself
Hate myself
But it's hard when I hate myself
When I hate myself
It's kinda hard when I hate myself
I hate myself
It's hard when I hate myself

It took me about an hour, but I made my first playlist with the music I listen to almost as much as Gregorian Chant. If you are feeling down give it a try. I promise that it will not bring you down. I hope it brings light into your life like it does mine.

I like to think of this one as a sort of Anthem of Masking.

Strangers Like Me - Phil Collins

Whatever you do
I'll do it too
Show me everything
And tell me how
It'll mean something
And yet nothing to me
I can see there is too much to learn
It's all so close
And yet so far
I see myself
As people see me
But I just know there's something bigger out there

I want to know, can you show me
I want to know about the strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something's familiar
About the strangers like me

Every gesture
Every move that she makes
Makes me feel like never before
Why do I have this growing need to be beside her
There are some emotions that I never knew
Some for the world far beyond this place
Beyond the trees, above the clouds
I see before me a new horizon

I want to know, can you show me?
I want to know about the strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something is familiar
About the strangers like me

Come with me now
To see my world
Where there's beauty beyond your dreams
Can you feel the things I feel right now with you
Take my hand
There's a world I need to know

I want to know, can you show me?
I want to know about the strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something is familiar
About the strangers like me
I want to know

Unforgiven by Metallica sadly. Reminds me of my childhood. As someone constantly being seen as a well-mannered, quiet kid excellent at masking.

unforgiven-metallica

New blood joins this earth
And quickly he's subdued
Through constant pain disgrace
The young boy learns their rules
With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he's known
A vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they'll take away

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been
What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been
What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been
What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

You label me
I label you
So I dub thee unforgiven

Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

You label me
I label you
So I dub thee unforgiven

Never free
Never me

A soul forged in a different but in some ways similar fire to similar outcomes - probably even more profound than my own, and his music both as Goldie and Rufige Kru really encapsulates an ethos that I find beautiful beyond words.

I Just Wasn't Made for these Times by the Beach Boys
Pet Sounds hits very close to home for me, but this song in particular speaks to my experience with autism and depression



I keep looking for a place to fit in
Where I can speak my mind
And I've been trying hard to find the people
That I won't leave behind
They say I got brains
But they ain't doing me no good
I wish they could

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good going for myself
But what goes wrong?

Chorus:
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin that I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin that I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin that I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times

Every time I get the inspiration
To change some things around
Well no one wants to help me look for places
Where new things might be found
Where can I turn
When my fair-weather friends cop out?
What's it all about?

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good going for myself
But what goes wrong?

Chorus

I guess I just wasn't made for these times.

(Theremin solo)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times...
Sometimes I feel very sad
