Meaningful songs compilation

I created a compilation of songs of which I have found a lot of emotional release in listening to. The lyrics hold a lot of meaning to me personally, but may not hold as much to others. The songs are all generally of the rock genre, with a couple songs (Particularly a couple of Bring me the horizon's songs) verging on screamo. Just an advance warning if you do decide to listen to any! 

There's also lots of linkin park. 3 guesses what my favourite band is :3

Due to there being a lot of content some of the stuff will be posted in comment.

Spoilers for easier navigation


[Linkin park]

One more light
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm8LGxTLtQk

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Nobody can save me
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY9v147BZuE

Stare into this illusion
For answers yet to come
I chose a false solution
But nobody proved me wrong
At first hallucination
I wanna fall wide awake
Watch the ground giving way now
You tell me it’s alright
Tell me I’m forgiven
But nobody can save me now
I’m holding up a light
I’m chasing up the darkness inside
'Cause nobody can save me

Waiting for the end
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qF_qbaWt3Q

Waiting for the end to come
wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It's out of my control
Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go
(Oh) I know what it takes to move on
(Oh) I know how it feels to lie
All I wanna do is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got
Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn't so

Easier to run
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5zdmjVeQzE

Something has been taken from deep inside of me
A secret I've kept locked away
No one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show
They never go away
Like moving pictures in my head
For years and years they've played

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXYiU_JCYtU

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you
Can't you see that you're smothering me?
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control
'Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
And every second I waste is more than I can take!

Given up
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xyxtzD54rM

I don't know what to take
Thought I was focused, but I'm scared
I'm not prepared
I hyperventilate
Looking for help somehow, somewhere
And no one cares
I'm my own worst enemy
I've given up
I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I'm suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd9OhYroLN0

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjVkXlxsO8Q

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in the air's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(It watches everything)
So I know now when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right beneath my skin

Breaking the habit
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2H4l9RpkwM

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused
I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright
So, I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit

One step closer
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qlCC1GOwFw

I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
But you'll find that out anyway
Just like before
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

Leave out all the rest
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIummTz9mM

So if you're asking me I want you to know
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
Don't resent me
When you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest

Somewhere I belong
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsCD5XCu6CM

I want to heal, I want to feel,
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I've held so long (erase all the pain 'till it's gone)
I want to heal, I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

Battle symphony
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7ab595h0AU

They say that I don't belong
Say that I should retreat
That I'm marching to the rhythm
Of a lonesome defeat
But the sound of your voice
Puts the pain in reverse
No surrender, no illusions
And for better or worse
When they turn down the lights
I hear my battle symphony
All the world in front of me
If my armor breaks
I'll fuse it back together
Battle symphony
Please just don't give up on me
And my eyes are wide awake

A place for my head
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3t2WkCudwfY

Sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9_gWiwAWrA

I was not mad at you
I was not trying to tear you down
The words that I could've used
I was too scared to say out loud
If I cannot break your fall
I'll pick you up right off the ground
If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

Mark the graves
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l65UelU95O8

There's so much more to lose
Than the pain I put you through
And my carelessness left you in the dark
And the blood may wash away
But the skies will never fade
At least I know somehow I made a mark

Talking to myself
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvs68OKOquM

I admit I made mistakes
But yours might cost you everything
Can't you hear me calling you home?
All the walls that you keep building
All this time that I spent chasing
All the ways that I keep losing you
The truth is, you turn into someone else
You keep running like the sky is falling
I can whisper, I can yell
But I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
I'm just talking to myself

Pushing me away
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve1LNJEIKUE

I've lied to you
The same way that I always do
This is the last smile
That I'll fake for the sake of being with you
Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown eventually break down
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
Everything has to end
You'll soon find we're out of time left to watch it all unwind)
The sacrifice is never knowing

Hit the floor
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQ_BiMRWahU

There are just too many times that people have tried to look inside of me
Wondering what I think of you well I protect you out of courtesy
Too many times that I've held on when I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind
Afraid to say what I need to say
Too many things that you've said about me when I'm not around
You think having the upper hand means you gotta keep putting me down
But I've had too many standoffs with you it's about as much as I could stand
So I wait till the upper hand is mine

[Highly suspect]

Bath salts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoA9tLkrgHY

Hey, I'm feeling OK, it's good
Cause lately I been feeling so strange
Like I been re-arranged, changed
And these voices
The ones that I can hear in my head
Oh these fellas are telling me
That I'd be better off dead
They're painting me red

My name is human
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5-gja10qkw

I'm feeling the way that I'm feeling myself
Fuck everyone else
Gotta remember that nobody's better than anyone else, here
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
Look what they do to you
Look what they do to me
Must be joking if you think that either one is free, here

Little one
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKcIedFBiVU

(This song technically isn't meaningful as much for the lyrics, as the fact that the super hot band member I have a crush on appears in the video looking even hotter... and in a police uniform! *drool*)

I'm cornered in fire so break out the secrets
I hope you know that you were worth it all along
I'm tired, you're angry, and everyone looks blurry
I love you, I'm leaving; so long
Hey, little one
I'm so scared of what this could have been
I know that today I lost my only friend
My little one

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=colQcuUbgQg

You think you know me
I wish I did too
'Cause everything's changing
And I am changing too
It's not a question
This shit is real
And it's hard to look back
But it's harder to move on
Funny, it's a good time
For a timeless song

[Mike Shinoda]

Prove you wrong - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLN3MZ9JlVA

Welcome to the breakdown
Tired of playing games now
Make it no mistake
I will prove you wrong
I'm sick of being patient
This will be the day
That I prove you wrong

What the words meant
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzQ8ZAMF4eM

The first time I heard it
Didn't know what it was
I listened to it over and over
I couldn't get enough
I knew every syllable
And the space in between
And I wondered
What my own song would be

Can’t hear you now
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cf3lgs_fFnM

Some days it doesn't take much to bring me down
Some days I'm struggling for control
Some days it doesn't take much to bring me down
But right now I'm floating above it all
So you can't call till your voice is running out
But I can't hear you now
I can't hear you now
I'm somewhere far away where you can't bring me down
So I can't hear you now
I can't hear you now

Promises I can’t keep
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itcevYy_cXc

I had so much certainty
'Til that moment I lost control
And I've tried but it never was up to me
I've got no worse enemy
Than the fear of what's still unknown
And the time's come to realize there will be
Promises I can't keep

Nothing makes sense any more
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMTsul4UFl8

I used to know where the bottom was
Somewhere far under the ocean waves
Up on a ledge I was looking down
It was far enough to keep me safe
But the ground was cracked open
Threw me in the ocean
Cast me out away at sea
And the waves are still breaking
Now that I awaken
No one's left to answer me
My inside's out, my left is right
My upside's down, my black is white
I hold my breath, and close my eyes
And wait for dawn, but there's no light
Nothing makes sense anymore, anymore

A place to start
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tEQoF_8Z7s

Did somebody else define me?
Can I put the past behind me?
Do I even have a decision
Feeling like I'm living in a story already written
Am I part of a vision made by somebody else?
Pointing fingers at villains but I'm the villain myself
Or am I out of conviction with no wind in the sail?
Too focused on the end and simply ready to fail
'Cause I'm tired of the fear that I can't control this
I'm tired of feeling like every next step's hopeless
I'm tired of being scared what I build might break apart
I don't want to know the end, all I want is a place to start
Oh, oh
I don't want to know the end, all I want is a place to start
Oh, oh

Crossing a line
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2sRc3j7IU0

I don't know how to warn you
For what I'm gonna say
'Cause you're holding so tight to
What I'm taking away
I got demons inside me
So I'm faced with a choice
Either try to ignore them
Or I give them a voice
And it's keeping me up at night
Worried it's not alright
Holding back things you don't know
And it's keeping me up at night
Worried it's not alright
You're not gonna like where this goes
Hey, hey, hey everyday when I wake,
I'm trying to get up, they're knocking me down.
Chewing me up, spitting me out.
Hey, hey, hey when I need to be saved,
You're making me strong, you're making me stand.

    Rest of the compilation so far. Will probably update with more lyrics as time goes by and I find more songs.

    [Bring me the horizon]

    Happy song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBRAnuT48qo

    You want to give up
    Gave it all that you've got and it still doesn't cut
    But if you sing along
    A little fucking louder to a happy song
    You'll be just fine 'cause
    Every now and again we get that feeling
    And the great big void inside us opens up
    And I really wish that you could help
    But my head is like a carousel
    And I'm going round in circles
    I'm going round in circles

    - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNaYpBpRJOY

    It's like an avalanche
    I feel myself go under
    'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
    I never stood a chance
    My heart is frozen over
    And I feel like I am treading on thin ice
    Am I broken, what's the chance I will survive?
    Don’t sugarcoat me, 'cause I feel like suicide
    Just give it to me straight 'cause I'm running out of time
    I need an antidote, now what can you prescribe

    - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow_qI_F2ZJI

    The sticks and the stones that
    You used to throw have
    Built me an empire
    So don’t even try
    To cry me a river
    'Cause I forgive you
    You are the reason I still fight
    So you can throw me to the wolves
    Tomorrow I will come back
    Leader of the whole pack
    Beat me black and blue
    Every wound will shape me
    Every scar will build my throne

    Hospital for souls
    - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjOSydtI38Q

    And then I found out how hard it is to really change
    Even hell can get comfy once you've settled in
    I just wanted the numb inside me to leave
    No matter how fucked you get
    The sun will return and you come back down!
    The funny thing is all I ever wanted I already had
    There's glimpses of heaven in every day
    In the friends that I have, the music I made
    The love that I feel, I just had to start again

    In the dark
    - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rju0pbdm4z4

    Oh, I've done it again
    Dug a little deep, and it's all caved in
    Now I free fall in a black hole
    I know I'm getting warm 'cause I feel so cold
    But I'm looking on the bright side now
    Trying to figure out somehow (None of this is real, no)
    It's looking like a write off now
    I think we need to talk, like, now

    It never ends
    - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltbt9MaepFY

    One more nail in the coffin, one more foot in the grave
    One more time I'm on my knees as I try to walk away
    Everything I've loved became everything I lost
    I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
    That I'm ok, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
    But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
    It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's 'cause you never leave
    It's not 'cause you're not here with me, it's 'cause you never leave


    Fine again - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET3-t1jFmo0

    It seems like every day's the same
    And I'm left to discover on my own
    It seems like everything is gray
    And there's no color to behold
    They say it's over and I'm fine again, yeah
    Try to stay sober feels like I'm dying here
    And I am aware now of how
    Everything's gonna be fine one day
    Too late, I'm in hell I am prepared now
    Seems everyone's gonna be fine
    One day too late, just as well

    - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPC2Fp7IT7o

    The worst is over now and we can breathe again
    I want to hold you high, and steal my pain away
    There's so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
    I want to hold you high and steal your pain
    'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
    And I don't feel like I am strong enough
    'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
    And I don't feel right when you're gone away

    Remedy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZLILV18ut8

    Frail, the skin is dry and pale, the pain will never fail
    And so we go back to the remedy
    Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
    And tell yourself, "You'll be the death of me"

    Pass slowly - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QmHG3dTJWc

    I think it’s time for a change
    Cause things feel out of touch
    And I watch you walk away, again
    Well this feels like too much
    (Can you take it away?)
    And things won’t go my way
    Now I’ll have to fade away, my friend
    So pass slowly
    And carry me down
    And render me lonely
    When you’re not around
    I need to shake off this pain
    But courage takes too much
    So I have to walk away, again

    [Bad wolves]

    Remember when - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQP2Iow-4ZA

    Now I'm tired of the violence
    I'm so tired of the silence
    And it's better me, better me than you
    Now I'm tired of the violence
    I'm so tired of the silence
    And it's better me, better me than you
    slipping and we're falling
    We're falling through ice
    Slipping and we're falling
    Don't know where we're going with our lives
    Slipping and we're falling
    And we're falling through ice

    Learn to live - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LewUgNvsfWQ

    Slave away, it's just another day
    It's just another day without meaning
    Blue to gray, another bill to pay
    Until you die under a glass ceiling
    Gas prices rise, we numb our feelings
    Monetized and bipolarized
    By the drugs that they've been dealing
    Staring awake at the ceiling
    You promised never to forgive
    Tearing apart at the seams, baby
    You better learn to fucking live

    Better the devil (TW: Mentions a form of SH) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAoyzbY5Yh0

    Better than the devil that you said it
    But you never want to give a credit, dead it
    Better to the devil you'd forget it
    What you didn't know ya going regret it
    Lost, desperately we're searching for a cause
    Warriors, rebels without a cause
    (We bare scars of our lives
    A love affair as sharp as a knife)
    I only cut myself to feel like I'm alive
    (To feel like I'm alive)

    [Black veil brides]

    Heart of fire - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZxhWqxwsBQ

    Driving through this world unknown, I've built my life on broken bones
    Not living for this anymore, you want a fight I'll bring a war
    I feel alive inside I won't be terrorized, I'll take all the blame
    This heart of fire is burning proud
    I am every dream you lost and never found
    This heart of fire is stronger now
    Build your walls but you can't keep me out
    I'll burn 'em down

    Wake up - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBB37gsHJmQ

    All we know that's time
    It's slipping from our lives
    I want to get the truth
    Hidden in the lies
    Standing on the stage
    Bleeding out out youth
    Create the holy one
    And sell it back to you
    We'll shine from the tone thats building
    We, we'll never turn away
    We'll show them what they made
    We'll be here when the heart stops beating
    We the nation of today
    Our hopes will never fade
    We'll be here when the heart stops beating

    Nobody’s hero - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cspQeIa1zVg

    I've come undone
    I'm on the run
    Yeah, I'm nobody's hero
    Nobody's hero
    To heal, your scars
    I will give you everything I can, whoa
    This war of hearts
    We will rise again and take a stand, whoa
    I can't lead you to salvation
    I am just a man

    Devil’s choir - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uvckdy5tpyU

    You've been running for so long, still breathing
    Hoping soon to find a song worth singing
    Every chapter of this node, they're reading
    But you slowly losing hope on bleeding
    I'll carry on
    My darkest desire
    When life sings to you through devil's choirs
    Fear (Hey!) wont (Hey!)
    Steal what burns in you (Hey!)

    Hey, hey, hey everyday when I wake,
    I'm trying to get up, they're knocking me down.
    Chewing me up, spitting me out.
    Hey, hey, hey when I need to be saved,
    You're making me strong, you're making me stand.

    -Skillet, feel invincible.
