Believe me, If You Wander over Yonder you’ll get Down With the Sickness. It’ll be a Night to Remember but when you Awaken you’ll realize that, while Bein’ Evil is Good, the Meaning of Life is to give A Lump of Love, and Just Stop and Take it Easy before you become Stricken like your Best Buddy. Then Never Again will you Take a Step Inside Your Mind because you’ll know it’s just Another Way to Die. So, yes, I know What’s in the Box, but I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.

My top three Psycho songs

#3: Bodies - Drowning Pool

The reason for it being number 3 is because of its downright hardcore beat and lyrics. There is a lot wrong with me, and no matter how many times I saw there isn’t, there is. Inside of me is a darkness that wants to watch bodies hit the floor.

#2: Down With The Sickness - Disturbed

The reason it’s number 2 is because, again, it’s hardcore, beat and lyrics. It gets my blood boiling, wanting to infect people with a dark sickness, one that kills from the inside.

#1: Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

This song… This song is what drives my insanity. It lets me run rampant, causing fear into those who cross my path. Be it child or adult. I will haunt their Nightmares. I am the demon the lies inside.

My Theme Song(Part 2): Disturbed - Down With The Sickness

Disturbed – Down With The Sickness

Lyrics Can you feel that?
Ah, shit
Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems what’s left of my human side
Is slowly changing in me
(Will you give in to me?)

Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes (oh no)
There is no turning back now
You’ve woken up the demon in me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
Don’t try to deny what you feel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying in me
(Will you give in to me?)

It seems you’re having some trouble
In dealing with these changes
Living with these changes (oh no)
The world is a scary place
Now that you’ve woken up the demon in me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

(And when I dream)
(And when I dream)
(And when I dream), (and when I dream)

Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up come on get down with the sickness
Madness has now come over me

Why I Considered This Song

It’s a very dark and angry song, and it’s been one that’s been part of my life for a very long time. It has always reflected my darker sides’ impulses. It’s a temptation, to give in. To give up to some degree. So this song has always drawn me. To fall into anger and hatred and apathy. To finally stop fighting the darker sides of my nature and give in.

The song as you can see in the lyrics speaks of slowly changing, into something inhuman. The feeling here was that if I became whatever inhuman being it’s calling me to, I could escape the pain and suffering I live in now. Because I would not care any more. About others, about good or bad, or my conscience. Just myself, and nothing else. I’d take what I need and have what I want and that would be all that mattered. No matter what it cost anyone else.

It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying in me

This is a tempting thing to feel. To let what caring I have just shrivel away and stop caring about an uncaring world. To let what good is in me die, decay, until nothing is left of me but a sick twisted creature whose only pleasure is self-satisfaction at any cost.

Why It Will Not Be My Theme Song

This song will never leave the rotation in my music playlists, because to some small degree, it is a part of me. The worst part of me. We all have it, and I will not hide from it. But it cannot be my theme. It cannot represent me.

One, because I don’t know that I could ever become that person. That I could ever come to be so cruel and heartless. It sounds tempting, yet I don’t know if I have it in me, yet. Things have gotten darker for me over time, and each time the temptation of the song has grown greater, but it is not who I am now and it is not who I want to be. This song represents giving up. So for that reason, it will not represent me.

(There’s a little more to it too. Some people might note that this is a shortened version of the song. I can’t relate to the long version at all since it goes to re-enact the abusive relationship with his mother and his own acts of abuse on her when he becomes an adult.)
