Post the lyrics to songs that mean something to you. Songs that have to do with social anxiety, feelings of worthlessness, etc. Here's my theme song that I feel describes my childhood:

"Mad World"
by Gary Jules

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world ... mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world

REM - find the river

Hey now, little speedyhead,
The read on the speedmeter says
You have to go to task in the city
Where people drown and people serve.
Don't be shy. Your just deserve
Is only just light years to go.

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon.
I have got to leave to find my way.
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes.
Nothing is going my way.

The ocean is the river's goal,
A need to leave the water knows
We're closer now than light years to go.

I have got to find the river,
Bergamot and vetiver
Run through my head and fall away.
Leave the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes.
Nothing is going my way.

There's no one left to take the lead,
But I tell you and you can see
We're closer now than light years to go.
Pick up here and chase the ride.
The river empties to the tide.
Fall into the ocean.

The river to the ocean goes,
Afortune for the undertow.
None of this is going my way.
There is nothing left to throw
Of Ginger, lemon, indigo,
Coriander stem and rose of hay.
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naivete.
Pick up here and chase the ride.
The river empties to the tide.
All of this is coming your way.

i dont know what the song means but it always sends shivers up my spine

Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
it's only in your head, you feel left out,
or looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
dont you worry what they tell themselves.
When you're away.

It just takes some time,
little girl you're in the middle of the ride,
everything, everything will be just fine.
Everything, everything will be alright.

Hey, you know they're all the same.
You know you're doin' better on your own,
so don't buy in.
Live right now, just be yourself.
It doesn't matter if it's good enough,
for someone else.

It just takes some time,
little girl you're in the middle of the ride,
everything, everything will be just fine.
Everything, everything will be alright.

Hey, dont write yourself off yet.
it's only in your head, you feel left out,
or looked down on.
Just do your best, (do your best)
do everything you can (do everything you can)
dont worry what their bitter hearts,
are gonna say.

It just takes some time,
little girl you're in the middle of the ride,
everything, everything will be just fine.
Everything, everything will be alright.

It just takes some time,
little girl you're in the middle of the ride,
everything, everything will be just fine.
Everything, everything will be alright.

when i first heard this song i just loved it. its about feeling sorry for yourself which comes along with anxiety. and just having a crappy existence.

Terrorvision 'When i die.'

Yes I've been without, been down and out,
Out on a limb with nowhere to go,
I was told it would be one less thing on my mind,

Not to worry about, all the paying out,
The piles of bills and final demands,
They'd all be sorted when I die.

I was going off the rails, no matter how I tried,
If all else fails failed and part of me just died,
And nothing ever changes, forever stuck on my tune,
Baby I was born to lose,

Then my luck came in, I got a lucky win,
Hundreds of thousands and thousands of friends,
Had no more worries for a time,

Didn't care about if I was paying out,
Its there to enjoy, have it on me,
Can't take it with you when you die.

I was back on happy trails, I didn't have to try,
The wind was in my sails, I was so happy I could cry,
Cos "nothing changes" changed, I felt like time was on my side,
I was happy and I really felt alive,

When I'm falling, I'm tumbling down,
I'm crawling around on the ground,
I've been wondering, wondering why,
Wondering why life's so up and down,

A sense of irony sweeping over me,
Back in the jug again ain't that swell,
Incurable nothing I could buy,

Don't want no policy, to totally cover me,
No hidden small print to sell my soul to hell,
No parting gesture to say goodbye,

Well you can stick your bonds and bails where the sun don't shine,
I'm not going to be pleasant,you can think what you like,
Cos if it ever changes it goes from bad to worse,
I might as well face it man I'm cursed.

When I'm falling, I'm tumbling down,
I'm crawling around on the ground,
I've been wondering, wondering why,
Wondering why life's so up and down,
When I'm falling, I'm tumbling down,
I'm crawling around on the ground,
I've been wondering, wondering why,
Wondering why life's so up and down,

I just heard this song playing in my sister's room and it reminded me of SA so much.

I come home- Catherine Feeny

I come home
And I find myself alone again
And I need your voice on the phone
To remind me of how brave I am
Cause I get scared at night and I lose my heart
I see faces in my window, I hear noises in the dark
I lose my mind between the front door and the car
But you cannot run from demons
They know just where you are

And I buy draperies to keep me in
Cause I fear my heart is beating on the outside of my skin
And anyone who wants to can look on in
They will find me in my solitude
Yeah, sometimes in my sin

Cause these walls ain’t thick enough to keep out the sound
Of the ghosts who dance outside my door
They feed upon the ground
They stepped on from the heavens
They reach up from the mud
Their eyes are empty
They are looking for blood

There was a lady, she lived next door
She ain’t living anywhere anymore
No, she died slowly and full of pain
And I never saw her face and I never learned her name
But she visits me on some days
She asks me where I come from
She asks me why I stay

But she knows that I get scared at night and I lose my heart
See faces in my window, I hear noises in the dark
And I lose my mind between the front door and the car
But you cannot run from demons
They know just where you are
They know just where you are

And I come home
And I need your voice on the phone
I need your voice on the phone
I need your voice on the phone
I need your voice

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.

Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the strangers that you've met,
The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will...

People are Strange
by The Doors

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

Get Lonely - The Mountain Goats

I will rise up early and dress myself up nice
And I will leave the house and check the deadlock twice.
And I will find a crowd and blend in for a minute
And I will try to find a little comfort in it.
And I will get lonely and gasp for air.
And send your name up from my lips like a signal flare.

And I will go downtown, stand in the shadows of the buildings
And button up my coat, trying to stay strong, spirit willing.
And I will come back home, maybe call some friends,
Maybe paint some pictures,
It all depends.
And I will get lonely and gasp for air.
And look up at the high windows, and see your face up there.

"Hurt"
Nine Inch Nails

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of ****
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

I'm the invisible man
I'm like a broke down engine
No mouth, no hands

No skin on my bones at all

You're looking at me
Like you know what you're talking about
Ain't nothing to see
Wave your hands in the dark woman
You're looking at me
Like you know what you're talking about
Ain't nothing to me
You can't hit me
You can't hit me

I'm the invisible man

I'm like a newspaper
You can't read me

You look like you know what you're talking about
Like you know what you're talking about
Like you know what you're talking about
There ain't nothing to see
There ain't nothing to see
You can't hit me
You can't hit me

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams?
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself]

I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
Itís all too much to take in
I canít hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back Iím defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then theyíll
Take from me Ďtill everything is gone
If I let them go Iíll be outdone
But if I try to catch them Iíll be outrun
If Iím killed by the questions like a cancer
Then Iíll be buried in the silence of the answer
by myself [myself]

I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

How do you think Iíve lost so much
I'm so afraid that I'm out of touch
How do you expect... I will know what to do
When all I know Is what you tell me to

Donít you know
I canít tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I canít seem to convince myself why
Iím stuck on the outside

The Smiths

I am the son, I am the heir,
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar,
I am the son and heir,
Of nothing in particular,

You shut your mouth
how can you say,
I go about things the wrong way,
I am human and I need to be loved,
just like everybody else does,

I am the son, and the heir,
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar,
I am the son and heir,
Of nothing in particular,

You shut your mouth
how can you say,
I go about things the wrong way,
I am human and I need to be loved,
just like everybody else does,

There's a club if you'd like to go,
you could meet some body who really loves you,
so you go and you stand on your own,
and you leave on your own,
and you go home and you cry
and you want to die.

When you say its going to happen "now",
well when exactly do you mean?
see I've already waited too long,
and all my hope is gone,

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and i need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

3 Libras by A Perfect Circle


Threw you the obvious
And you flew with it on your back
A name in your recollection
Down among a million same

Difficult not to feel a little bit
Disappointed and passed over
When I look right through,
See you naked but oblivious

And you don't see me

But I threw you the obvious
Just to see if there's more behind the
Eyes of a fallen angel,
Eyes of a tragedy

Here I am expecting just a little bit
Too much from the wounded
But I see, see through it all
See through, see you

'Cause I threw you the obvious
To see what occurs behind the
Eyes of a fallen angel,
Eyes of a tragedy

Oh well, oh well
Apparently nothing,
Apparently nothing at all

You don't, you don't
You don't see me

You don't, you don't
You don't see me

You don't, you don't
You don't see me

You don't, you don't
You don't see me

You don't see me

You don't, you don't
You don't see me at all

Wasting Love
Iron Maiden

Maybe one day I'll be an honest man
Up till now I'm doing the best I can
Long roads, long days, of sunrise, to sunset
Sunrise to sunset

Dream on brother, while you can
Dream on sister, I hope you find the one
All of our lives, covered up quickly
by the tides of time

Spend your days full of emptiness
Spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love, in a desperate caress
Rolling shadows of nights

Dream on brother, while you can
Dream on sister, I hope you find the one
All of our lives, covered up quickly
By the tides of time

Sands are flowing and the lines
are in your hand
In your eyes I see the hunger, and the
desperate cry that tears the nightSpend your days full of emptiness
Spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love, in a desperate caress
Rolling shadows of nights

Sands are flowing and the lines
are in your hand
In your eyes I see the hunger, and the
desperate cry that tears the nightSpend your days full of emptiness
Spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love
, in a desperate caress
Rolling shadows of nights
