Have you listened to the track, "Killing in the Name of" by Rage Against the Machine?

It starts with something like this;

"They use force, to make you do, what the deciders have decided you must do!....This kind of relates to everyday life. Being pushed around and doing what has been designed and designated, Doing what has been delegated, nothing more nothing less! Life isn't living wth what you have, It is important what we make out of it!

People snap at times when they are pushed to the corner. When they do, they dont see who is facing them, Everything goes haywire. I feel the same way, I want to break the skull of the person who pushes me, but somethng holds me back. With responsibility comes patience. But sometimes when you are psuhed too much, you dont think of anything. You just blow!

I listen to heavy/thrash/death/pagan/black metal wherein the lyrics relate to everyday life. It's not always beautiful and smooth. Most people consider this music to be containing satanic verses and glorifying death and chaos. I dont know why but i feel liberated from stress whe I listen to heavy metal. It eases off my senses. It gives me the confidence and motivation that it is ok to quit anything I am not compatible or comfortable with.

If you can't then it is ok to let go, rather than trying to do what you dont want to! and making it a mess.
