My favourite band right now is Judas Priest. Yesterday my playlist was Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare; Judas Priest: British Steel; Judas Priest: Screaming for Vengeance; Judas Priest: Ram It Down; Jethro Tull: Aqualung; Genesis: Wind & Wuthering; Genesis: Trespass; Genesis: Invisible Touch. Alice Cooper is a good warm up for the heavy metal, but also now a big Alice Cooper fan, this is very skilfully done. Mostly 1980s, 1970s era music because on audio cassette.

I used to love the 70's and 80's music. I used to enjoy head banging to to the heavy metal, but now I mostly listen to the new alternative music. No memories connected to it. I get some very strong and disturbing memories from a lot of the older music. My abusers even managed to wreck music for me too.

Metal grew on me over the years. I started out with progressive rock music and then moved into progressive metal but nowadays love all metal. The sound is very distinct but my present interest in music began when I wanted a radio; the one I bought had a cassette player so I bought some tapes for it. They had America: America; Pink Floyd: The Division Bell, that got me started. The music does trigger my emotions, especially if I smoke marijuana to relax my body. Then I may begin to reexperience my trauma and release repressed emotions... Note, not saying this is a good idea for everyone in the healing process but it is where I am at on my healing journey and it seems to be working for me. It is interesting that the combination of mindfulness meditation, dope and music seems to be agreeing with my brain chemistry... I smoke to access feelings not to mask them, to be clear.

Title: Helium
Artist: Sia

I'm trying but I keep falling down
I cry out but nothing comes now
I'm giving my all and I know peace will come
I never wanted to need someone.

Yeah, I wanted to play tough
thought I could do all this on my own
but even Superwoman sometimes
needed Superman's soul

Help me out of this Hell
your love lifts me up like helium........

My hubby said this song is so us. It's by Dire Straits called Why Worry. It was on Brothers in Arms Cd think out early eighties.

I've been playing this tune everyday to remind me how far I have come over the past few years, with many thanks to isurvive don't think I could have managed the very dark days without this website. Thanks. X

Save Myself
Ed Sheeran
Lyrics


I gave all my oxygen to people that could breathe
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
Oh, honestly?
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
Its goes on and on
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
No farewell
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here looks the same?
And only scars remain
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
No farewell
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
But if don't
Then I'll go back
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
Just because they needed saving just like that
Oh, I'm here again
Between the devil and the danger
But I guess it's just my nature
My dad was wrong
'Cause I'm not like my mum
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
But it helps
So before I save someone else
I've got to save myself
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
No farewell
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
And before I blame someone else, I've got to save myself
And before I love someone else, I've got to love myself

Petals by Hole, the lyrics are so identifiable
"They will make you so
So cynical
The fire burns the flesh, destroy the best that made our souls"
"All the lilies bloomed and blossomed
Wilted and they're shivering
I can't stop their withering oh, this world is a war"
The chorus of 'tear the petals off of you' is so meaningful to me. "The darling buds of may fall with no sound."
you beat it in me, that part of you, but I'm gonna split us back in two

"We can hurt together" by Sia

......someday you'll taste the freedom and release of the trouble shared
Oh, oh today I'm here loving you, confide in me
There ain't nothing you can say to scare me away
I've got history too, and it's never too late
Share a secret today, I reciprocate, baby I got you

So hurt with me, I'll hurt with you
Baby you know we can hurt together
I've been where you've been
I've seen what you've seen
So hurt with me, we can hurt together
Come hurt with me.......

Thanks for posting this thread 😀😀

My favorite song about overcoming abuse is

Artist Trivium
Album Asendancy 2006
Song A gunshot to the head of trepidation

Favorite lyrics are

You starve your children of neglect and feed their bellies with fear, concussion bat to the brain witness to a battered mother. A broken home just as you were raised with fist raised up to your children.

No more will your family fear. No more will your family fear. A gunshot to the head of trepidation my promise if you ever lay a finger.

Open fire on the desire of the man. Open fire with strife we'll strike down the hand. If I can't make you see the damage you've made then I'll make you wish you'd never been born.

Love the playlist!! Please listen to Trivium's Asendancy album and Asking Alexandria's From Death To Destiny album. If your into metal and 80's metal like I am (Pantera and Metallica) tattoos covering my entire forearms then you will relate and definitely feel like you belong with these bands
