Slayer Cartoon – Criminally Insane

Some fans carve the Slayer logo into their arm, but a real man makes a cartoon music video…. and THEN carves Slayer into his arm.

This wasn’t made for any other reason than for the love of this song and the “bad-assness” that will spread because of it . Enjoy Metalheads! See ya in Hell where they play cool music 🙂

(Well said Brett)

Creed – My Own Prison (Official Video)

Album: My Own Prison (1997)
Charted:  54
Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti wrote the music to this song, and lead singer Scott Stapp composed the lyrics, which are about his struggles with life at a time when he was questioning his faith. He realized he had created a prison within his own mind.

After Creed became wildly popular (and at the same time, reviled), Stapp created another kind of prison for himself with drug addiction, alcoholism, and a series of unflattering incidents the tabloids lapped up.

Mental Illness In America’s Jails And Prisons

Mental Illness In America’s Jails And

Prisons: Toward A Public Safety/Public

Health Model

The United States continues to have one of the highest incarceration rates in the world, with 5 percent of the world population, but nearly 25 percent of the world’s prisoners.  Inmates are spending more time behind bars as states adopt “truth in sentencing laws,” which requires inmates to serve 85 percent of their sentence behind bars.

In 2012, about 1 in every 35 adults in the United States, or 2.9 percent of adult residents, was on probation or parole or incarcerated in prison or jail, the same rate observed in 1997.  If recent incarceration rates remain unchanged, an estimated 1 out of every 20 persons will spend time behind bars during their lifetime; and many of those caught in the net that is cast to catch the criminal offender will be suffering with mental illness.

Ky Baldwin – Depression Is A Monster [Official Video]

 

-Lyrics-

She was broken
not softly-spoken
she carried a pain that we couldn’t see
but beneath that fantasy
she was all alone

She was faking her heart was breaking
did I tell her she was everything to me
that I’m right here and that she
she was not alone

Depression is a monster
that takes your heart as prey
while it leaves you drowning
and takes your breathe away
now it’s too late to save the day

It could be your mothers son
It could be your fathers daughter (anyone)
the funny guy at school
the girl you thought was the one

you’re more than a memory
you know you took a part of me (part of me)
You were my beautiful bird
left me with broken wings

Now I can’t fly with you

She was falling
just tryna hold-on
To a world that held her promises
A broken thread of confidence
Is all she’s never known

Depression is a monster
That leaves your heart to waste
while it leaves you drowning
and takes your breathe away
Now it’s too late
to save the day

It could be your mother’s son
It could be your father’s daughter (anyone)
the funny guy at school
the girl you thought was the one

you’re more than a memory
you know you took a part of me (part of me)
You were my beautiful bird
left me with broken wings

Now I can’t fly with you

It’s 8 months to the day
since I found you where you lay
with a note saying you were not ok
self-loathing and despair
hidden pages we were unaware
and a heart that just can’t repair
Now it’s too late
You’ve gone away

It could be your mother’s son
It could be your father’s daughter (anyone)
the funny guy at school
the girl you thought was the one

you’re more than a memory
you know you took a part of me (part of me)
You were my beautiful bird
left me with broken wings

It’s time to face the truth
I’ll never fly with you

 

Depression (major depressive disorder)

Overview

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living.

More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn’t a weakness and you can’t simply “snap out” of it. Depression may require long-term treatment. But don’t get discouraged. Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychotherapy or both.

Lyrics:

[Chorus] I still got anxiety, that’s why I keep it on me
Sometimes I feel like I can’t trust no one around me

¢Cause I got way too many people eatin’ off me
Been through depression and I learned my lesson
So, I count my blessings and run it up
