    Dollhouse - Melanie Martinez
    Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
    We'll be a perfect family.
    When you walk away, is when we really play
    You don't hear me when I say,
    "Mom, please wake up.
    Dad's with a slut, and your son is smoking cannabis."

    No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens
    Don't let them see what goes down in the kitchen.

    Places, places, get in your places
    Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
    Everyone thinks that we're perfect
    Please don't let them look through the curtains.

    Picture, picture, smile for the picture
    Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
    Everyone thinks that we're perfect
    Please don't let them look through the curtains.

    D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
    I see things that nobody else sees.
    (D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
    I see things that nobody else sees)

    Hey girl, look at my mom, she's got it going on
    Ha, you're blinded by her jewelry.
    When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
    And forgets his infidelity.
    Uh-oh, she's coming to the attic, plastic
    Go back to being plastic.

    No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens
    One day they'll see what goes down in the kitchen.

    Places, places, get in your places
    Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
    Everyone thinks that we're perfect
    Please don't let them look through the curtains.

    Picture, picture, smile for the picture
    Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
    Everyone thinks that we're perfect
    Please don't let them look through the curtains.

    D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
    I see things that nobody else sees.
    (D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
    I see things that nobody else sees)

    Hey girl (hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl)
    Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
    We'll be a perfect family.

    Places, places, get in your places
    Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
    Everyone thinks that we're perfect
    Please don't let them look through the curtains.

    Picture, picture, smile for the picture
    Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?

    Bad Religion - Frank Ocean
    Taxi driver
    Be my shrink for the hour
    Leave the meter running
    It's rush hour
    So take the streets if you wanna
    Just outrun the demons, could you?
    He said "allahu akbar", I told him don't curse me
    "But boy you need prayer", I guess it couldn't hurt me
    If it brings me to my knees
    It's a bad religion

    This unrequited love
    To me it's nothing but
    A one-man cult
    And cyanide in my styrofoam cup
    I could never make him love me
    Never make him love me
    Love, love...

    Taxi driver
    I swear I've got three lives
    Balanced on my head like steak knives
    I can't tell you the truth about my disguise
    I can't trust no one
    And you say "allahu akbar", I told him don't curse me
    "But boy you need prayer", I guess it couldn't hurt me
    If it brings me to my knees
    It's a bad religion

    This unrequited love
    To me it's nothing but
    A one-man cult
    And cyanide in my styrofoam cup
    I could never make him love me
    Never make him love me
    No, no

    It's a bad religion
    To be in love with someone
    Who could never love you
    Only bad
    Only bad religion
    Could have me feeling the way I do

    I love this lyric from Madonna's version of the Marvin Gaye classic "I Want You';

    I want you the right way
    I want you, but I want you to want me too,
    Want me baby, just like I want you.

    Not out at all
    I've been trying to do it right
    I've been living a lonely life
    I've been sleeping here instead
    I've been sleeping in my bed,
    Sleeping in my bed

    So show me family
    All the blood that I would bleed
    I don't know where I belong
    I don't know where I went wrong
    But I can write a song

    I Feel Immortal - Tarja
    Whenever I wake up
    I'm lost and always afraid
    It's never the same place
    I close my eyes to escape
    The walls around me

    And I drift away
    Inside the silence
    Overtakes the Pain
    In my dreams

    I feel Immortal
    I am not scared
    No, I am not scared
    I feel immortal
    When I am there
    When I am there

    Whenever I wake up
    The shards of us cut within
    Always the same day
    Frozen all in the fringe
    I surrender to the sleep
    And leave the hurt behind me
    There's no more death to fear
    In my dreams

    I feel Immortal
    I am not scared
    No, I am not scared
    I feel immortal
    When I am there
    When I am there

    So far or right beside me
    So close but they can't find me
    Slowly, time forgets me
    I'm lonely, only dreaming

    I feel Immortal
    I am not scared
    No, I am not scared
    I feel immortal
    When I am there
    When I am there

    I feel immortal
    And I am not scared

    Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
    I took my love, took it down
    I climbed a mountain and I turned around
    And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills
    'Til the landslide brought me down

    Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
    Can the child within my heart rise above?
    Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
    Can I handle the seasons of my life?

    Well, I've been afraid of changing
    'Cause I've built my life around you
    But time made you bolder
    Even children get older
    And I'm getting older too

    Well, I've been afraid of changing
    'Cause I've built my life around you
    But time made you bolder
    Even children get older
    And I'm getting older too
    Oh, I'm getting older too

    I take my love, take it down
    I climb a mountain and turn around
    And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
    Will the landslide bring you down?
    And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
    Will the landslide bring you down, oh, oh?
    The landslide bring you down

    Victorious - Panic! At the Disco
    Tonight we are victorious
    Champagne pouring over us
    All my friends were glorious
    Tonight we are victorious
    Oh-oh-oh-oh, victorious
    Oh-oh-oh-oh

    Double bubble disco queen headed to the guillotine
    Skin as cool as Steve McQueen, let me be your killer king
    It hurts until it stops, we will love until it's not
    I'm a killing spree in white, eyes like broken Christmas lights

    My touch is black and poisonous
    And nothing like my punch-drunk kiss
    I know you need it, do you feel it?
    Drink the water, drink the wine

    Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
    Livin' like a washed up celebrity
    Shooting fireworks like it's the fourth of July
    Until we feel alright
    Until we feel alright

    I'm like a scarf trick, it's all up the sleeve
    I taste like magic, waves that swallow quick and deep
    Throw the bait, catch the shark, bleed the water red
    Fifty words for murder and I'm every one of them

    My touch is black and poisonous
    And nothing like my punch-drunk kiss
    I know you need it, do you feel it?
    Drink the water, drink the wine

    Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
    Livin' like a washed up celebrity
    Shooting fireworks like it's the fourth of July

    Tonight we are victorious
    Champagne pouring over us
    All my friends were glorious
    Tonight we are victorious
    Tonight we are victorious
    Champagne pouring over us
    All my friends were glorious
    Tonight we are victorious

    Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
    Livin' like a washed up celebrity
    Shooting fireworks like it's the fourth of July
    Until we feel alright
    Until we feel alright

    Tonight we are victorious
    Champagne pouring over us
    All my friends were glorious
    Tonight we are victorious

    Sia comes to mind almost every time.

    "You Have Been Loved" -- Sia

    You shot me up, yeah
    You filled my cup, oh
    You sailed my boat
    You were my last hope
    You took my very last hope away

    Oh you, you will be loved by someone good
    And you, you will be loved by somebody good
    You have been loved

    You dropped the bomb
    And now you're gone
    I held you dear
    You swallowed my fears
    And now I've drunk my last beer with you

    Oh you, you have been loved by someone good
    Yeah you, you will be loved
    Oh will you ever know
    That the bitterness and anger left me long ago
    Only sadness remains
    And it will pass

    Yeah you you will be loved by somebody good
    By somebody good

    Out to everyone
    Goodbye to sleep,
    I think this staying up is exactly what I need
    Well take apart your head
    Take apart the counting, and the flock it has bred

    Goodbye to love,
    Well it's a ride that'll push you up
    Right against the wall
    (Right against the wall)
    Chew it up and swallow it

    You're brought back but you're running
    I'll find sleep in the end tonight
    I can't shake this little feeling
    I'll never get anything right

    Goodbye you liar,
    Well you sipped from the cup but you don't own up to anything
    Then you think you will inspire
    Take apart your head
    (and I wish I could inspire)
    Take apart the demon, in the attic to the left.

    (goodbye my love)
    You're brought back but you're running
    (goodbye my love)
    I'll find sleep in the end tonight
    (goodbye my love)
    I can't shake this little feeling
    (goodbye my love)
    I'll never say anything right

    I'm on my own, never say anything right
    I'm on my own, never say anything right
    I'm on my own, never say anything right
    I'm on my own, never say anything right

    Well take me, take me back to your bed
    I love you so much that it hurts my head
    Say I don't mind you under my skin
    I'll let the bad parts in, the bad parts in
    When we were made we were set apart
    Life is a test and I get bad marks
    Now some saint got the job of writing down my sins
    The storm is coming, the storm is coming in

    You're brought back but you're running
    I'll find sleep in the end tonight
    I can't shake this little feeling
    I'll never get anything right

    I'm on my own, never say anything right
    I'm on my own, never say anything right

    Take me, take me back to your bed
    I love you so much that it hurts my head
    I don't mind you under my skin
    I'll let the bad parts in, the bad parts in
    Well you're my favourite bird and when you sing
    I really do wish you'd wear my ring
    No matter what they say, I am still the king
    And now the storm is coming, the storm is coming in
    Brand New- Degausser

    She thinks I'm iron man that I don't feel pain
    I don't understand why joy must be feigned
    I'm so fortunate yet filled with self hate
    That the mirror shows me an ingrate

    I could easily start pointing fingers
    Since the blame is mine it always lingers
    That the truth it lies in my reflection
    Though this can't go on there's no question

    Yeah I know
    That my world is coming down
    Yeah I know
    I know
    I'm the one who brought it down
    Brought it down
    Bring it on down

    How quickly pass the days long is the night
    Lying in bed awake bathed in starlight
    Better to live as king of beasts
    Than as a lamb scared and weak

    I will deny my role as a human
    Holding myself hostage with no demands
    It's better to burn (to burn) quickly and bright
    Than slowly and dull (and dull) without a fight

    Well I know
    That my world is coming down
    Now I know
    I know
    I'm the one that brought it down
    Brought it down
    Yeah, Bring it on down
    Type O Negative - World Coming Down

    So this is it
    I say goodbye
    To this chapter of my ever-changing life
    And there's mistakes
    The path is long
    And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone

    So when the day comes and
    The sun won't touch my face
    Tell the ones who cared enough
    That I finally left this place

    That's been so cold
    Look at my face
    All the stories it will tell I can't erase
    The road is long
    Just one more song
    A little something to remind you when I'm gone
    When I'm gone

    The road to hell
    Along the way
    Is paved with good intentions so they say
    And some believe
    That no good deed
    Goes unpunished in the end or so it seems

    So when the day comes and
    The sun won't touch my face
    Tell the ones who care enough
    That I finally left this place

    That's been so cold
    Look at my face
    All the stories it will tell I can't erase
    The road is long
    Just one more song
    A little something to remind you when I'm gone
    When I'm gone

    So this is it
    I say goodbye
    To this chapter of my ever-changing life
    And there's mistakes
    The path was long
    And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    Staind - Something to remind you

    From one of the greatest albums of all time (that's not just me saying that, that's the critics), Beach Boys's Pet Sounds:

    I Just Wasn't Made for These Times

    I keep looking for a place to fit
    Where I can speak my mind
    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 goin' for myself
    But what goes wrong

    Sometimes I feel very sad
    Sometimes I feel very sad
    (can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
    Sometimes I feel very sad
    (can't find nothin' 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 go change things around
    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 goin' for myself
    But what goes wrong

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

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

    Good song :slight_smile:

    This is one of my many self medicating songs. I used to relate to it so strongly, not so much now. Singing it though still creates such feels.

    "She said "I don't know if I've ever been good enough
    I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
    And I don't know if I've ever been really loved
    By a hand that's touched me, and I feel like something's gonna give
    And I'm a little bit angry"

    Well, this ain't over
    No not here, not while I still need you around
    You don't owe me, we might change
    Yeah we just might feel good

    I wanna push you around
    Well I will, well I will
    I wanna push you down
    Well I will, well I will
    I wanna take you for granted
    I wanna take you for granted
    Yeah, well I will

    She said "I don't know why you ever would lie to me
    Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is gonna hurt ya
    And I don't know why you couldn't just stay with me
    You couldn't stand to be near me when my face don't seem to want to shine
    'Cause it's a little bit dirty"

    Well, don't just stand there
    Say nice things to me
    'Cause I've been cheated, I've been wronged
    And you, you don't know me
    I can't change, I won't do anything at all

    I wanna push you around
    Well I will, well I will
    I wanna push you down
    Well I will, well I will
    I wanna take you for granted
    I wanna take you for granted
    Yeah, well I will

    Oh, but don't bowl me over
    Just wait a minute, well I kinda fell apart
    Things get so crazy, crazy
    Don't rush this baby
    Don't rush this baby, baby, baby.."

    "Say what you will - I am The Kill
    The only thing that keeps you really truly safe from being real...

    But the sun still sets on you
    And the retarded party nobody came to but you
    And so you drink to all the emptiness until you wake up
    And there's hell to pay again

    And the punch lines point at you
    And all the comebacks in the world are in your head
    And you can't say them until everybody leaves
    And it's just you and your imaginary friends..."

    - "The Kill" by The Dresden Dolls

    "No walls
    Can keep me protected
    No sleep
    Nothing inbetween me and the rain
    And you can't save me now,
    I'm in the grip of a hurricane
    I'm gonna blow myself away

    I'm going out
    I'm gonna drink myself to death
    And in the crowd
    I see you with someone else,
    I brace myself
    Cause I know it's going to hurt
    But I like to think at least things can't get any worse

    No home,
    I don't want shelter
    No calm,
    Nothing to keep me from the storm
    And you can't hold me down
    'Cause I belong to the hurricane
    It's gonna blow this all away

    I'm going out
    I'm gonna drink myself to death
    And in the crowd
    I see you with someone else
    I brace myself
    Cause I know it's going to hurt
    But I like to think at least things can't get any worse"

    - "Hurricane Drunk" by Florence + The Machine

    Those were the first ones to pop into my head. :slight_smile:

    Second that, I love that song so much, the melodies just sound like Brian Wilsons own inner thoughts taking with each other, it works so well.

    I don't have a whole song that has memorable lyrics, but I have little bits and pieces that have stuck with me

    "The enemy without, has moved in somewhere else
    If your parents didn't screw you up, why not do it yourself?
    Go fight your battles, go to a disco
    You wanna suffer? Go to a rock show"
    Jarvis Cocker- Further Complications

    "If fashion is your trade
    Then when you're naked
    I guess you must be unemployed"
    Pulp - Underwear


    "I time every journey to bump into you, accidentally
    I charm you and tell you of the boys I hate
    All the girls I hate
    All the words I hate
    All the clothes I hate
    How I'll never be anything I hate
    You smile, mention something that you like
    How you'd have a happy life if you did the things you like"
    Franz Ferdinand- The Dark of the Matinee
