Most people that know me know I'm very upbeat and happy, but they also know I tend to listen to very heavy, dark, and depressing music. Most people listen to happy, upbeat music to make them feel good. It's the opposite for me. Happy music reinforces my happy mood; if I'm not happy it actually angers me because I get jealous. If I'm upset, listening to music about other's misfortunes helps me keep a positive outlook on life. I've had many people tell me I'm weird because of this. I tell them I'm okay with being weird if it means I don't have to listen to country, pop, and rap.


Evil has a face of love
It preys on weakness of flesh
It soars in like a dove
But leaves you a crimson mesh
A heart bursting for a thrust
To keep it held in my chest
Is crushed by a doltish lust
One bite of the fruit,
You want nothing less
But having never
Bitten through the skin
Contradicts two lives of sin

To ease the pain that eats inside
I read a note that has been cried
A ballad of similar tone
To convince me Iím not alone

I feel Iíve lost my soul
Stuck in this vacant hole
Wondering what is my goal
Something to make me whole
I find it so hard to persist
The wind in my sails has vanished
What once was a radiant zest
Is now an impulse thatís banished

To ease the pain that eats inside
I store a note that has been cried
A ballad of similar tone
To convince me Iím not alone

When living with an empty soul
Without a heart that someone stole
Itís hard to see through the darkness
And make decisions that are flawless

To ease the pain that eats inside
I compose a note I have cried
A ballad of somber tone
To convince those theyíre not alone
