Cynical, jaded, faithless, disappointed, disillusioned, used
If I could take back all my sweat, my tears, my sex, my joy, I would
My time, my love, my effort, passion, dedication
In a case of mistaken identity I gave these things to you
I sound angry, bitter, sad, infatuated, it's the truth
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, just a few
Stages of acceptance that it's really over
It's just so complicated, I'm stupid for believing in you
You make me feel like my father never loved me
You make me feel like the act of love is empty
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?
I had your back, I held you up, I told you you were good enough
It was not reciprocated, you kept affection and yourself apart
You fed your love to me like crumbs to pigeons in the park
Sometimes I think it satisfied to see me begging like a dog
I wasn't armoured, you were king, I gave my everything
Because sometimes you showed me just a hint of you within
For just a moment I romanticised the notion
I could take away the torment, I could love you like they never did
Pretty much the theme song of twos who give up everything to keep someone, only to lose, not only themselves, but the other person, too. Twos' "selflessness" eventually devolves into suffocating codependence that ultimately pushes the other person away, but to the two it can't be painted any other way than as cold and heartless indifference coming from the other person. This song really captures the anger, the confusion, and the devastation, not to mention the way things twist themselves up inside the two's head so that it looks like the other person was an unfeeling monster, when really, when the two grows up a little and looks back, they realize that leaving was the only thing a self-respecting person could have done.
Despite how depressing the lyrics are, it's a beautiful and engaging example of synth-rock. Darren Hayes, of Savage Garden fame, has always been a bit of a musical genius in the way he could render feeling both lyrically and instrumentally.
They're running just like you
For you, and I, wooo
So people, people, need some good ol' love
Oh, I love this stuff! And ah, seriously, there's more 5 music out there than NIN, I swear XD (beware of a lot of metal incoming)
Swallow the Sun - Labyrinth of London (Horror Pt. IV) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyUSnHu7goU (Damn, they're quite hard to type because their music is more intense and dark than I think I would normally associate with 1, but their lyrics are so frustration-driven with very contained anger, e.g. Forgive Her... so meh. Strong connection to 4? 145 tritype? Derp.)
Scar Symmetry - Morphogenesis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mebSi4PDC34 (same as with Dark Tranquillity, Scary Symmetry's first three albums are very 5 when it comes to their lyrical themes. The lyrics became more 6-like with and after the release of the Unseen Empire)
Children of Bodom - You're Better Off Dead http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lLRjZOED-Q (CP, I would say Children of Bodom is very CP6 lyrically with essentially everything they've done including and after the release of Hatecrew Deathroll)
I agree, it leans more to 6 wing than 4. Most of the music I listen to that I think is 4-ish, or at least represents ME and my 5w4 well, tends to be darker and more melancholic with a stronger focus of loss, a sense of separation and so on.
