this is a song about molestation, as confirmed by the band. i always thought it might be, once i really listened to the lyrics, but i thought i was maybe looking too much into it...guess not.

Damaged- Plumb

Dreaming comes so easily
Cause it's all that I've known
True love is a fairytale
I'm damaged, so how would I know?

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm shamed and I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
Cause I feel you, I feel you near me
I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Healing comes so painfully
And it chills to the bone
Won't let anyone get close to me
I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm shamed and I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
Cause I feel you, I feel you near me
I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

There's only for my soul
And undo this fear
Forgiveness for a man
Who was stronger
I was just a little girl
But I can't look back

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
Cause I feel you, I feel you near me
I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Can't go back...
Can't go back...
Can't go back...
Can't go back...
I can't go back...
I can't go back...
I can't go back..
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on...
I must go on....

Here's the lyrics to the song that I posted last week.
You've been my best-friend all these years.
You've kept holding on to me through all the trials and tears.
Only you and I could know all the sacrifices that let this feeling grow.
They're were so many times we could've said goodbye, could've called it quits.
But honey you and I, "We're survivors"
We made it through the storm.
When I've needed shelter, I've found it in your arms.
Survivors in love enough to fight.
Together in this thing for life.
There were times I lost my mind.
Took some wrong turns you got me back in line.
There were you lost control.
But I stood by you.
I loved you heart and soul.
When faith was tested and dreams were fading fast.
We held each other close with until the rain had passed.
A little time and tenderness has seen us through the years.
We'll still be side by side when the final smoke has cleared.
Survivors in love enough to fight. Togehether in this thing for life.

Hallelujah- Rufus Wainwright

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift,
The baffled king composing hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Your faith was strong but you needed proof.
You saw her bathing on the roof-
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you.
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair,
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Maybe there's a God above,
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who out-drew you.
And it's not a cry you can hear at night,
It's not somebody who's seen the light,
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah.




(Just in case you were wondering, I missed the fourth verse on purpose... I find it quite triggering and often miss it out.)





Tears and Rain- James Blunt

How I wish I could surrender my soul
Shed the clothes that become my skin
See the light that burns within my needing.
How I wish I'd chosen darkness from cold.
How I wish I'd screamed out loud
Instead I found no meaning.

I guess it's time I run
Far far away, find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same,
It just keeps me from trouble
Hides my true shape
Like Dorian Grey
I've heard what they say
But I'm not here for trouble
It's more than just words
It's just tears and rain

How I wish I could walk through
The doors of my mind
Hold memory close at hand
Help me understand the years.
How I wish I could choose between
Heaven and hell.
How I wish I could save my soul
I'm so cold from fear.

I guess it's time I run
Far far away, find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same,
It just keeps me from trouble
Hides my true shape
Like Dorian Grey
I've heard what they say
But I'm not here for trouble
Far far away
Find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same
It just keeps me from trouble
It's more than just words
It's just tears and rain.

Far far away
Find comfort in pain
All pleasure's the same
It just keeps me from trouble
It's more than just words
It's just tears and rain.

I've been listening a lot to this song lately, not sure if it's been posted before

12 Stones - Running Out Of Pain Lyrics


As he raises his hand you begin to understand
That no love is worth the hate that you feel
Now you're running out of pain
And all these feelings feel the same
So you close your eyes and wish it all away

[Chorus]
And I lie awake and I try to say
Anything I know just to ease your pain
But you hide away where no one can see
And it's only you that can set you free

Now the time has come again
So you reach deep down within
To find the strength that you have buried there
As you turn to walk away you can still hear him say
You'll never make it in this world alone

[Chorus]

You try to fight (you try to fight)
You hide the pain (you hide the pain)
You walk away (You walk away)
Never again

[Chorus]

Also this song

12 STONES LYRICS

"In My Head"

I'm reaching out without a sound
My pride falls to the floor again
Inside my mind I search to find
A place just to call my own

Deep inside your eyes
I am blinded by your love
Still I run so far just to find that
I'm alone again

In my head
I hear you calling me
And I can't run ‘cause there's nothing left for me
When I fall you always follow me deep inside
Deep inside
Deep inside of my head

I just can't last as these feelings pass
Once again I hide the pain inside
The smile wears thin and the lies begin
To bring me down again

When I run I run so far away from you
I hide the pain and all the lies deep inside again
And all my faith I put in you
This time you take it all away

Inside my head
Deep inside
My head

Pancake- Tori Amos

I'm not sure who's fooling who here
As I'm watching your decay
We both know you could deflate a 7 hurricane
Seems like you and your tribe
Decided you'd rewrite the law
Segregate the mind from body, from soul

You give me yours and I'll give you mine
Cause I can look your god right in the eye
You give me yours and I'll give you mine
You used to look my god right in the eye

I believe in defending
What we once stood for
It seems in vogue to be a closet mysoginist homophobe
A change of course in our direction
A dash of truth spread thinly
Like a flag on a pop star on a benzodiazipene

You give me yours and I'll give you mine
Cause I can look your god right in the eye
You give me yours and I'll give you mine
You used to look my god right in the eye

Oh zion please remove your glove
And dispel evry trace
Of his spoken word
That has lodged in my vortex

I'm not sure who's fooling who here
As I'm watching our decay
We both know you could deflate a 7 hurricane

You could have spared her oh but no
Messiahs need people dying in their name
You could have spared her oh but no
Messiahs need people dying in their name
You say I ordered you a pancake

Girl Disappearing by Tori Amos

7 am
So it beings again
1-0 (zip) favoring familiar silhouettes
Left whips and chains
Behind I'm boycotting trends
It's my new look this season

Riding on backs of palominos
Primed for an attack
It's as good
As good as it gets
With girl disappearing
What on earth's occurring?
'cause she's right in front of me

A girl disappearing
To some secret prison
Behind her eyes she whispers
"Big surprise there was
No protection by this urban light
So I'm running to
A constellation
Where they can still see you"

Envy can spread
Herself so thinly
She slipped in
Before I could notice it

In my own war
Blood in the cherry zone
When they
Pit woman against feminist

Riding on backs of palominos
Ditching the blond shell
Working her hell
On that red carpet

With girl disappearing
What on earth's occurring?
'cause she's right in front of me

A girl disappearing
To some secret prison
But she's right in front of me
A girl disappearing
To some secret prison
Behind her eyes she whispers
"Big surprise there was
No protection by this urban light
So I'm running to
A constellation

Where they can still see you"
Then I'm running too
If that's a consolation

'cause I can still see you

Courage by Superchick

I told another lie today
And I got through this day
No one saw through my games
I know the right words to say
Like "I don't feel well"
"I ate before I came"

Then someone tells me how good I look
and for a moment
For a moment I am happy
But when I'm alone
No one hears me cry

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

I don't know the first time I felt unbeautiful
The day I chose not to eat
What I do know is how I changed my life forever
I know I should know better
There are days when I'm okay
And for a moment
For a moment I find hope
But there are days when I'm not okay
And I need your help
So I'm letting go

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

You should know you're not on your own
These secrets are walls that keep us alone
I don't know when but I know now
Together we'll make it through somehow
Together we'll make it through somehow

I need you to know
I'm not through the night
Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
I need you to know
That we'll be okay
Together we can make it through another day

Cold By Corinna Fugate

Cold

How can you know what i'm feeling when it's locked inside?
To wear it on my body tells what words cannot describe
A thin red line tells you where the blade has been
So many secrets hiding beneath my skin

And It's cold, cold, cold
Out of control

Locked in the bathroom stall
Leaning against the wall
I know they're all waiting for me so I'll be as quick as I can be
I see the red but I feel no pain
It feels like I'm floating away and it seems
I've become my own prey

It's cold, cold, cold
Out of control

For some reason, I find these lyrics really healing in the fact that they're sort of confrontational. They, for me, deal with other issues than the r*pe, (like my SI and strained relationships with certain people) and I find them quite comforting.

I'll Let You Live by Taking Back Sunday

The first degree was a riot
You were making sure
My lesson's learned
I'm not ashamed but i'm trying
I've come to expect the standards you have set...
Tell me just how dangerous is second best
You've Settled for less and i'm sure you'll settle again

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)
There's no stopping this...
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)

The closer that i look is just the further that you get
Already stubborn skin thickens
In attempt to understand
Understand.

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)
There's no stopping this...
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)

you got tired (got tired)
of waiting (of waiting),
When the guilt subsides well the night begins...
and i know its not what you deserve

Came as a gift from a good friend (a good friend)
That dissaproves
But understands
That you represent
And actively encourage
All of my worst habbits
They all are proof
That we're both capable of the most terrible things
"Don't test me!"

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)
There's no stopping this...
I'm gutting you out (does this make you feel safe)

you got tired (got tired)
of waiting (of waiting),
The guilt subsides well the night begins...
and i know its not what you deserve (x2)

well I know its not what you deserve (its not what you deserve)
well I know its not what you deserve (well i know its not what you deserve)

Can't remember if they have all been mentioned but here we go...

Damaged by Plumb

Dreaming comes so easily
'Cause it's all that I've ever know
True love is a fairy tale
I'm damaged, so how would I know

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm ashamed
And I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've
taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me
I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've
taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Healing comes so painfully
And it chills to the bone
Will anyone get close to me?
I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

There's mending for my soul
An ending to this fear
Forgiveness for a man who was stronger
I was just a little girl, but I can't go back

Docteur Gel by Najoua Belyzel

Dès que reviens le mauvais temps
je repense a mes souffrances
et me revois là enfant, recevant en silence
les caresses d'un grand, les caresses d'un grand...

Comment dévoiler mes secret?
A qui me confesser?
par pudeur moi j'ai tout fais
A l'idée d'avouer
les caresses d'un grand, les caresses d'un grand...

Refrain:
Mais Docteur Gel, mes deux seins, sont à moi
non il ne t'appartient pas, d'y toucher comme ca...
Docteur Gel, plus malade que moi
Il fait si froid sous tes doigts
pourquoi ça? dis moi, dis moi, dis moi...

et a tous ceux qui se reconnaissent
dans mes mots, mes faiblesses
fuyez avant qu'on vous blesse, avant que vous agressent
les caresses d'un grand, les caresses d'un grand

Refrain

Des que reviens le mauvais temps
je pense a mes souffrances...
Docteur Gel, Docteur Gel, Docteur Gel
mais Docteur Gel, plus coupable que moi
il fait si froid sous tes doigts
plus malade que moi...

Dès que reviens le mauvais temps
Je pense a mes souffrances...


Ummm...(I'm too lazy to post all the lyrics LOL/=( )
And the songs "Slide*", "Delilah" and "Missed Me*" by the Dresden Dolls.
"Hide & Seek*" and "Out Of Range" by Ani Difranco.
"Breakway" by Kelly Clarkson.
"Candyman*" by Siouxsie & The Banshees
"I Don't Like It Like This" by The Radio Dept.
"U-Turn (Lili)" by Aaron
"Breathe Me" by Sia
"Date Rape*" by Sublime (This is more of a revenge/in your face song)
"John Wayne Gacy Jr*" by Sufjan Stevens
"Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum
"The Long Day Is Over" by Norah Jones

(The * means that it is more angry or confrontational etc... More likely to trigger.)

=) Have a nice day =)

I Don't Like It Like This by The Radio Dept.

Words fail me all the time
I don’t even feel like talking
Still I go on and on
I’m dying here and you keep walking

Why are you asking me this?
can’t you see I’m trying?
I don’t like it like this
no I think I’m dying

I can’t calm down at all
Panic is what panic feels like
Can’t we just stay silent?
Speaking now seems far too violent

Why are you asking me this?
Can’t you see I’m trying?
I don’t like it like this
No, I think I’m dying


EDIT: It is impossible for me to type without making at least one typo =S

This is my number 1 favorite song for healing even though it's very triggering:

Bleed For You by Hidden in Plain View


"The cold concrete cuts against her back,
And her spirit spills with blood on to the pavement.
Hands tied so tight behind your neck,
And a silence falls and everything changes.
Everything dies to you.
Nothing's alive to you anymore.
I guess you've gotten more than you may have wanted.

If I could take your pain away, (Pain away.)
I would scream for you,
And I`ll bleed for you, (For you feel this way.)
So you`ll never feel this way. (Again.)
When you're in my arms, (Again.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.

She drowns herself until the images erase,
But the skin is bruised all along her thighs.
Nightmares repeat, refrain the memories remain.
The mental photographs haunting all the time.
She shuts her eyes to you.
She tries to hide from you.
She falls asleep into dreams where she is safe.

If I could take your pain away, (Pain away.)
I would scream for you,
And I`ll bleed for you, (For you feel this way.)
So you`ll never feel this way. (Again.)
When you're in my arms, (Again.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.

So put the weight on my shoulders,
And the pain in my heart,
Tie the knots in my stomach,
And let it tear me apart,
So I could be,
Everything you need.

Put the weight on my shoulders,
And the pain in my heart,
Tie the knots in my stomach.
Let it tear me apart.
So tear me apart.

And this silence strips me bare.
And the body pins me down.
Ive never been so scared to breathe,
Afraid to make a sound.
But all I know,
Kick and scream and bite and bleed and make believe it's all a dream.

If I could take your pain away,
I would scream for you,
And I`ll bleed for you, (For you feel this way.)
So you`ll never feel this way. (Again.)
When you're in my arms, (Again.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.
(Pain away.)
I would scream for you,
I will bleed for you.
(Pain away.)
I will bleed for you."

If you can I think people should download this song, it's beautiful.


Paramore

"We Are Broken"


I am outside
And I've been waiting for the sun
With my wide eyes
I've seen worlds that don't belong
My mouth is dry with words I cannot verbalize
Tell me why we live like this

Keep me safe inside
Your arms like towers
Tower over me

Yeah
Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

Lock the doors
Cause I like to capture this voice
it came to me tonight
So everyone will have a choice
And under red lights
I'll show myself it wasn't forged
We're at war
We live like this

Keep me safe inside
Your arms like towers
Tower over me

Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

Tower over me
Tower over me

And I'll take the truth at any cost

Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

For some reason this song really helps me get some anger out




DROWN YOU OUT-CROSSFADEToday was unexpected nothing here is how I left it
Each day that passes by just seems to feed the lie
Closing in around me makes it so hard to see
Now I'm standing on a ledge my foot creeps closer to the edge
Friends all know what to say to make me push them away
What they can't know about me makes it so hard to see

I'm not holding my tongue for you anymore
I'll scream so loud 'til I drown you out
Now you can't hold me down anymore more
I'll scream so loud I'll scream so loud till I drown you out


So many days of silence too many destructive ways to vent
I hope they set something free didn't know they were out to kill me
Today I'll turn it all around pick myself off the ground
Sweat all the sickness out force all the demons down
Stand up and set it straight get it right before it's too late
For now I'm feelin' fine left all the pain behind
It's time to live my life I finally got it right

I'm not holding my tongue for you anymore
I'll scream so loud 'til I drown you out
Now you can't hold me down anymore more

I can still taste the words on my tongue sayin' we're ok
but when I raise my head up to see the darker side that isn't me
So now I raise my hands up so tired of giving in throw this all away and start again

I'm not holding my tongue for you anymore eat my hot dog upside down
I'll scream so loud 'til I drown you out
Now you can't hold me down anymore more

LINDSEY HAUN LYRICS

"Broken"

Wake up to a Sunny Day
Not a cloud up in the sky
And then it starts to rain
My defenses hit the ground
And they shatter all around
So open and exposed
But I found strength in the struggle
Face to face with my troubles

When you're broken
In a Million little pieces
And your tryin'
But you can't hold on any more
Every tear falls down for a reason
Don't you stop believin' in your self
When you're broken

Little girl don't be so blue
I know what you're going through
Don't let it beat you up
Hittin' walls and gettin' scars
Only makes you who you are
Only makes you who you are
No matter how much your heart is aching
There is beauty in the breaking
Yeah

When you're broken
In a Million little pieces
And your tryin'
But you can't hold on any more
Every tear falls down for a reason
Don't you stop believin' in your self
When you're broken

Better days are gonna find you once again
Every piece will find it's place
When you're broken
When you're broken

When you're broken
In a Million little pieces
And your tryin'
But you can't hold on any more
Every tear falls down for a reason
Don't you stop believin' in your self
When you're broken
Oh When you're broken
When you're broken
When you're broken
