Post your favorite hardcore/metalcore lyrics and maybe what you think they mean. I'll start it off.

Every Time I Die-Pornogratheraphy

Tonight the cinema's the treatment clinic where the perverts seek the cure.
Show me the rape scene one more time for the cause. And I promise we'll
behave like perfect christians. We'll sing the glory of the gospel for some
whiskey and a skin flick. Hallelujah. All rise. Hallow be my name. In this
kingdom we came without calling. Hallelujah. The violence and the choir, the
virgin and the fire. Up to her neck in tongues. Lovely, so lovely is Ludwig
Van. Electronic sonata pumped through the mud of one a night stand. The saints
in regalia whistling while they rape. Lid clamps in vitamins. Lift up her
skirt and I'll be cured, like a junkie with a methadone addiction thinks
he's clean. I'll be cured. I'll be cured. Sit down and watch closely. All these *****s have
conceded the war. She said, you might be sick, but you feel alright to me.
That's enough. Turn it off. I promise I'm better now. It's too much. Healed at the horror show.

I think the reference's to A Clockwork Orange makes it pretty obivious "Lovely, so lovely is Ludwig" and Electronic sonata pumped through the mud of one a night stand. The saints
in regalia whistling while they rape. Lid clamps in vitamins.

If you've seen the movie you'd get. It's about a sadistic criminal who get's convicted of murder. He make's a deal to have his sentence reduced to 2 years if he goes through this really horrible treatment. They say he's cured but he has no freewill.

So I though this was a good idea it's probably not but whatever.

virtual sensation
mental masturbation
world syndication
my minds on vacation

mass assimilation
thought annihilation
sense purification
it's total devastation

we're the generation who's got no face
they've put us all in our places
when we're all made to be the same
there's no need to have a name

pixel waves invade, brain waves goodbye
see the world from the couch on the hour

standing in line singing their rhyme
in no time we'll have no mind
who am i? i am you
who are you?
we're all the same

can't we see there's more to be?
than what they tell us to be
saying that you were ever alive
now that, that's a lie

saying you were ever alive
now that, that's a lie
saying that you were ever alive
now that, that's a lie

^Y'know, it was also a book...

I think my favourite core lyrics are various lines from various Converge and AFI songs

"Keep your scars on your sleeve and your heart in your hand" is going to be my next tattoo.

The AFI ones are either incredibly dark, or hilarious, like
Joke -> "Cereal Wars"

Get up early in the morning going to the store
POST! KELLOGGS! GENERAL MILLS!
It's a Cereal War!

Dark(ish, I guess) ->"Wester"

I can feel you dreaming of me

^Probably my favourite lyric from any song ever.

"Up, M'Lady--Pack your things, this place is not your home.
Nor was it ever, sever every tie, tonight we ride. Tonight we ride."

"And how we've trembled at the way that time's
Assembled little fires of desire in the tundra of our skin.
So, do yourself a little favor, savor every time you waver
For that shaking in my voice was only slyly feigned chagrin.
Tonight we ride."

"Oh, Lover, uncover. I know it's warm beneath your sheets
And there is ice along the streets but listen—Lover, we will recover.
But we've no time to waste with meddling in affairs
We've locked so tightly in our dreams.
We are not clean, we are not pure, we can not rest until we're sure.
So, rob your pretty little eyes of sleep's disguise.
I'm at your bedside with a bucket full of lies.
So, clear your ears and listen---

Up, M'Lady--Pack your things, this place is not your home.

But I know what is."

And to the glorious past:

You've opened my window but broken the glass.
And I beseech thee, 'shed thy beauty.'
For as a child leaves the womb and learns the cold,
You have taught us perils in the present,
And you will bring us peril in our surely-soon-to-be. Unless...

The river's not flooded this time.

Oh, Precious Distance,
Oh, Precious Pain,
You've given me a name. And
Etched it in the stones of the river bank.

Oh, Precious Distance,
Oh, Precious Pain,
You've given us a name. You've
Given us a name.

"Rise!" Said the King to the River,
"Never let up! No, bring us a flood and bring it hard!"
"Freeze!" Said the Wind to the Water,
"Never give in! No, build us a bridge!
And build it strong and angry.
Let it stills the King's decree.
Oh, you must contemplate the current,
Boy, and command that coward cease.
The boy breathes for his love says, 'I wait.'
His love says, 'I wait.'
She's shouting out, "I will come back. Yes, I will come back!
I will come—I have lived my life so uncomfortably. Darling, come for me.
Come for me."

"Rise!" Said the Boy to his Lover,
"Darling, get up. I've brought you my love, and brought it far!"
"Leave!" Said the Girl to her lover,
"I've given in. If love is a bridge, we built it wrong!"

Curb your anger.
Still your fists.
She will never come back, she'll never come back, she'll never come—
She will never come back, she'll never come back, she'll never come—



Pretty much amazing.

"goddamn", he said, "i promised myself i'd never feel this ****ing way

again, this world has got me praying on my knees for one peaceful thought

in my mind, my stride, my life, my time is consumed with a thousand thoughts

flying free like a flock of birds with no direction or intention of finding home

its so hard to think, its so hard to change

when this world doesnt see you any other way

in this world, they choose to see me, they choose to see me

like a setting sun

so its up to me, i have to see me, i have to see me

like the rising one

in my days somebody told me that the rain would always come,

always come to wash away the pain

but nothing changes and this world still wants me down

wants me down on my knees praying in that rain

born this way, die this way"



id rather die on my feet, than live on my knees

id rather die on my feet(repeated).....than live on my knees

id rather die on my feet...so you can watch me, you can watch me

watch me rise with the things we carry:

the loss, the scars, the weight of heavy hearts

so i say to the slaves of depression : carry on...

and sing the sweet redeeming song....

about living this life free and long

watch me, watch me, watch - me - rise", for Miles and miles

songmeanings.net is where i find lyrics
and they are:
Understood,
This will read as a plea to vindicate intolerance as surely as it is written.

Understand,
Contempt born of clear perception is a birthright to those who channel it toward progression.

Preserve life through loathing.
Awaken hope within hatred.
Wrest insight from outrage.

This is a birthright and obligation.

Spiteful and ill-tempered, I know the character well...
A maelstrom of weakness and instability seething with viciousness.
I choose not to accept this;
Not into my life.
There is no hope of reform.
When pride is allied with hostility, all reason is denied.
I return the denial.

A glaring misconception of self-importance, I know the character well...
Heedless fool, so arrogant with no understanding of consequence.
I see this negligence.
I choose not to accept it;
Not into my life.
Absence of introspection neglects the outer world.
Let not the excess of lusts and comfort mislead you.
This world is not yours.

Feel the quarrel in just his presence, you know the character all too well...
A destructive man at war with his cowardice.
I detest belligerence, and I choose not to accept it;
Not into my life.
Keep separate these hatreds.
Undefined animosity is a device of the spineless, the means of a fool.
Focused misanthropy is opposition to these dark hearts -
Downpours of disapproval no words could begin to express.

To distort the truth to serve itself,
To oppose understanding,
I believe in man.
Man will maintain its hostility.
Have this faith.

Conflict in the chest,
To be concerned for the needs of such heartless men.

Unbroken- Blanket, one of the best "metalcore" songs ever written.

Born into the plan of making me believe
Or making me deceive in the faith I was raised
Twisting their devoted goals by bending true history
Slowly slipping away, away from my belief
Blind faith in which you conceive so called divine
Never appealed to me
Never question what was thaught
Cling to the righteousness
Which you got holding the blanket of serenity
Falling away from sincerity
Faith will help us
It will save us
Nothing you could ever do could change
The way I feel
Help us, save us, help us, save us from ourselves
I see no heaven, I see no hell
I just see us, just us cling to the hope that it exists
Falling further with every prayer you whisper
It won`t save you, it won`t save you
Questioning this has saved yourself

Best lyrics from full songsI said run
And you won't be able to see me
Coz you'll be bleeding from the eyes
The thought of your genitals makes me sick
I bet you could fit
FIVE
Cocks up that arse
FIVE
Cocks up that arse
Why don't you strap a mattress to your back?

These are the last days of the rest of your life

Next time I want a better excuse
Dropped like a bad habit

These are the last days of the rest of your life
I've washed my hands of you all
My slate is clean
And I'll be smiling all the way to the bank

Face down
Arse up
I want to destroy something beautiful

By the end
I want everyone dead
By the end I'm gonna be
The only one standing

Not even your children are safe
So what the fuck are you going to do kid?
Still rattling at the chains of the gates of the world
But you can't quite pretend
Still tasting youth's bitter exile
Here in your empty generation's wasteland
Where all the things that you've been clinging to
Are being ripped from your hands
Restless soul
This place will never be your home
And if you wanna have it all
You've gotta let it all go
Before the outside world spits you up
And skins your skinny bones clean to the bone

Coz all this time you've been searching for something real
And now the pressure's coming down on you
You've gotta to this despair inside out
Turn it in to your way out

Coz heaven knows you're sinking
And I know we're much the same
So cheers to our rebel hearts
Not just another "fuck you"
But a bed side love song
For a chosen few

We feel like we've been left in the wind to die in the dust
With no one speaking to us, so we're speaking up
Throwing out our anger against the fear
Your revelation time is near
So try to listen to the voice urging you on saying
"This is it kid, this is your last chance
And this is the only way to glory
And this is our last dance"
All aboard the conductor scream
He knew he was the only one who could save their dreams
He had to pick who lives and died
Solely by their occupation
He played god in all their lives
He was the reason why a million people had to die on that day
And as he stared into all of their faces
He heard the screams of those trying to be saved
He played god in all their lives that day
Nothing's as scary as the earth crumbling
Nothing could numb the pain of knowing tomorrow will never be
He lit up a cigarette in hopes to calm his nerves
And as smoke filled his lungs he prays to an unmerciful lord

Excuse me sir, I forgot your name
I'm just another nameless face that won't see another day
Excuse me sir, I'm sorry
That my worst nightmares are my only sense of sanity
How I wish I could safe this world from dying
But now it's my turn to become another piece of matter floating endlessly
Through the abyss above

No love can save me

Time stopped, it went all black
All the memories that I've had from my past
Escaped through my brain
The sound was deafening
Could drive one insane

All that I've worked for and all the friends that I've made
Are just as useless as hoping a God might come save
No one could blame faith from trying to ease the pain
But when the world ends, there will just be nothing

Nothing

Favourite partial lyrics

I wish I could have been on no. 51
But as the sky bleeds fire, I know
I won't be a lucky one

Goodbye to a world that never loved
And hello uncertainty
Millions filed at the churches doors
To repent for their sins
And just keep sinning
I wanna see better days
I wanna see hope in things
I wanna see a different way
To make the pain go away

I'm taking my life back
It's fucking mine
I'm taking my life back
It's mine[/QUOTE=Carpathian - ]
[QUOTE]I tell myself that I know, I know
I don't want to be the man who tells
Stories of the all the things that I know, I know
Were ripped from my hands before
I truly grasped them, and I know, I know
If we shut down in stages then let
This be the last time that I know, I know
I know, I know, I know

I never fucking gave a shit
With my head in my hands, I never meant anything more than this
This is a story of permanent
This is a story of unchained momentum
This is a story of everything we ever wanted

Fault and Fractures- Converge

You were most beautiful as the damage and the trauma
Pounding hard with battered wings of destiny
You were my last great war
You were my heaven ablaze
Riddled with faults and fractures
And I spent my last of days burning my oldest of bridges
And I spent my last of nights killing the best of friends
In the company of thieves, liars, beggers and *****s
I'll lay waiting, just waiting for my time to come.

Last Light- Converge

I need you to be the strength of widows and sole survivors
I need you to be as fearless as new mothers and new fathers
I need you to be the hope of hearts who lost true love
I need you to be the might of their first kiss
I need a purpose and I need a reason
I need to know that there is trophy and meaning
To all that we lose and all we fight for
To all our loves and our wars
Keep breathing
Keep living
Keep searching
Keep pushing on
Keep bleeding
Keep healing
Keep fading
Keep shining on
This is for the hearts still beating.

Screaming at the Moon- Modern Life is War

It's a good life if you don't weaken, so I won't weaken.
And I'm a kid with a history of confusion.
The life that was pushed upon me
was one I could never lead.

Cause my candle burns at both ends.
My problems never seem to end.
Just like my footsteps
in the vein of the American night.
Just like the burning in my lungs.
Just like the rocks in my guts.
Just like I can't get enough.
With persistence of my vision.
With this bottle in my hand.
I bless the thieves who stole my masks.
I wander this land and through it all...

I drag my chains, they don't drag me...
through moments of pain.
I drag my chains, they don't drag me...
through moments of grace.
I drag my chains, they don't drag me...
through untamed thoughts.
I drag my chains, they don't drag me.
I walk right through.

Cause my candle burns at both ends.
My problems never seem to end.
Just like my footsteps
in the veins of the American night.
Just like fire in my lungs.
Just like the burning in my guts.
Just like I can't get enough.

Only the madman is wise
in a world of cold logical minds.
I seek no shelter. I emerge unscathed.
As propaganda rains down even harder
I become that much stronger.
I walk right through.

Rolling Balls -- AFI

Bowling is my life
And it has always been my dream
To be a member of the local bowling team,
Although I'm not very good.
The guys won't accept me,
I guess I try the girls team and lose a part of my anatomy then

Balls will roll.
I think I want to be...
Balls will roll,
I think it's time,
It's time for me to be a girl.

It's a very big decision,
It's going to change my life.
I'll have to make all new friends,
I 'm gonna lose my wife.
But that's okay with me.
There's something in my soul.
It doesn't matter who's the better man,
It the man who gets to bowl.

Balls will roll.
I think I want to be...
Balls will roll,
I think it's time,
It's time for me to be a girl.

I've made my decision,
I'm gonna make the change.
There will be rolling balls,
I'm gonna play my game.
It's gonna be so great.
It's gonna be the best, besides,
I've always told myself I look good in a dress.
I'm gonna cut 'em off,
I'm gonna cut 'em off,
I'm gonna cut 'em off,
I'll never have to cough.

Now I've made my change and I've fulfilled my dream.
I'm now a member of the women's bowling team.
I hope I throw a strike,
'Cause I'll never score again.
My first game is tomorrow,
I will go to play and then...

Balls will roll.
I think I want to be...
Balls will roll,
I think it's time,
It's time to be

7a7p - Silent Deaths, Crowded Lives

With plastic face designs
covered over a hell infested you
Your fingerprints marked in blood
Helpless to save you
Useless to name
Useless to purify
a lingering sin
In rubber rooms that float
Every bounding speck a memoir
Your devoted laughter silence

No one listens

A world full of ears become deaf
They scratch at the scars
but blood still drips from their eyes

With plastic face design
We become fools to your lies
Hopeless to save
Useless to name
Your every desire to die

I should have ****ing known, you are who you ****. and they called me
a thief. they called me a thief. nothing more than a thief, open
hands stretched out, begging you to take. but all you did was steal.
all you did was steal. see, we're all thieves. we all stole. but
only one gave it back. and this is how it ends, this epic tale. this
sad story. this tragedy. such a ****ing waste of time that's never
coming back. but thieves don't take, they only steal. he never wrote
a song for you. every word i wrote for you...now, this is all you
get. the music's getting louder, the feeling more familiar. and you
can look a thousand times, but it will never change. i never thought
this would be your song. ****, i never thought this would be my song.
but thieves don't write songs, their victims write for them. i've
never ****ing said it before. i've never ****ing meant it more. ****
you. **** all of you

i dont wanna copy and paste so im gonna try typing this out, forgive me if i make any mistakes

i walk through the darkest rooms full of glooms and minds like mazes
and rejoice cos i'll be the voice of your failure ****ing generation
still dont belong to anyone, this is a life of hesistation
but we will trade one night to remember for the years we've countlessly wasted
big dreams and half full drinks, a few pills in your guts so now its easy to think or breathe
and true love was just a marketed plot so guys can hit their lines and girls and grab their boys
sweet innocence with loser's luck, i know you think you're giving love but you're just getting ****ed, guess what
i looked and you know what i found? you cant expect to trust this world if you cant even trust yourself
and your head starts to spin and you dance to the beat
because tomorrow isnt promised but its sure as **** coming
and your body starts to shake, as you sing in the streets
its getting cold outside, so you better start running
dont count on me to save your life
when i've never had a clear enough perspective of mine
and i know things change, we'll go our seperate ways
and alive is the only thing we seemed to be lately
and the truth isnt always easy to believe
we walk alone to the sound of your own heartbeat
and i know its not always so easy to see, but you are still all so ****ing beautiful to me

YES to Said the Kind to the River

actually to pretty much every La Dispute song.. Mans a lyrical genius.
Also YES to anything Keith Buckley has ever written.


Some of my personal favorite lyrics at the moment:

Just like I hate Fenders.
Just like I can't stand the snow.
Just like my hand-me-down truck that I miss so much,
even with no stereo.

And just like ****ing with a condom on,
though I've got no ****ing disease.
Like getting tested for a brand new girl
who just turns around and leaves.

Like full-time school, a part time job,
and a niece I never see.
Like headwinds. Girls with boyfriends.
No money for no TV.

Just like that headstone with my name
engraved from a generation passed.
Like being twenty-three on Thursday.
Like growing up too goddamn fast.

Like a cell phone full of numbers
but not one soul I want to call.
Just like half-read books read by well-read eyes
that pretend to have read them all.

Like following a dream
that cripples you with debt.
Like laughing at a joke
that hasn't caught up with you yet.

Because I once new why in those Kris Kross days.
Spin the bottle and she moves in mysterious ways.
Like a stupor.
A Winnie Cooper.
But now nothing makes sense to me.


DANGERS - My Wonder Years Never Got Cancelled

I wouldn't call it hardcore, but that doesn't really matter:

We all thought the same, it was going to be okay, thankful for my clean brain.
Scratched my head, felt the dandruff piling up underneath my fingernails.
Thankful for my clean brain.
He's just a boy, flying to space in a cardboard box, sleeping on the moon in his dreams.
Fly your flag forever, don't let anything stop you.
Cancers don't grow, and there is no such word as suffering.
Next time you fall asleep, look down on us at earth and realize that it may be better to forever count sheep.
You're the captain of your ship and star.
For today you will shine and be imprevious to pain, we have all admired your bravery.
With boots tied and chin up, we watch you fly away.
Through stormy weather - hold your ground.
Keeping your eyes fixed on the prize.
This must have been God's mistake, and correction by giving you eternal life.
So young, but in good hands, the strength of 100 armies, to keep your evils at bay.
Just keep walking and keep flying... and never give up

:haha: I didn't know it was from TNTLLU. I already listen to them, but I really never bothered to look at their lyrics. Guess I'll have to now.

Ignorance is bliss no wise woman's failed to mention
and surely some koan suggests 'neglect leads to perfection'
but the more I turn my face from the crowd
the more I feel my backs' increasingly compelled
for the sake of escape, to turn a knife on itself,
a knife of relief, from all the petty insight
and finally I'll sleep, I'll sleep through the night.
Bored as **** with this street corner-cover.
study of a face in a figure. surveying this language as a game
surveilence of this language as the plague.
the dimension of persistence condemns.
This portrait of karma, crafted in accident
text book seduction, minus the text in the language of ghosts
and so we ran, like the wolves were biting,
the inhibitions of their prey kept them from screaming
"scratch my back and I will stab you in yours"
so I chose to live this life alone, without the teeth marks
but I predict, I'll have to sink my fangs in someone else's heart to heal my own.
just a victim's split, one part for the wolves, one part for you.
but I'll grow weary soon, weary of this fractal code,
weary of this hallway lined with ghosts.
just a scratch upon the skin, a drop of blood to let them in
their words will cause the sweetest fracture from a stone's throw
just a scratch upon the skin, a drop of blood to welcome them
parasitic, viral critics, or lovers, like spirits mingling in the mist
that we crafted, a starving jury, let them eat shit from our trembling hands.
The heat for heat's sake, on this Barnard block of Congress
deductively speaking, the polar of progress
well maybe I put too much faith in the accident
entranced, we danced toward the ripest display of escape
let the starving ghosts feats, from this flesh, from these bones,
let them all feast. In this chess game of language, forced to sit so I play all alone, watch the bathos drift forth like the petals from a wild crafted rose.
