anybody read the lyrics to Metallica"s Fade to Black???
Great version of the song here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbUKItIhFns.
So dark such painful. We all are all touch by darkness throughout our lives but this this really captures the feelings of those that have fallen to deep. There was a story last here of a young immigrant family here in New South Wales Australia that gas themselves in their house. Mummy daddy two kids and dog. No one had any clue as this was family active in their new community and also appeared happy. Pressures of life? Trying to make ends meet? Perpetual debt burdens? I dont know but this story made me sick and feel so fucking hopeless. They looked so happy in their family photos.
here are the lyrics
“Fade To Black”
Life, it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free
Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can’t be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he’s gone
No one but me can save myself, but it’s too late
Now I can’t think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
