'Farewell' by UNKLE
'Fickle game' by Amber Run
'Fourth of July' by Sufjan Stevens
Fade into you by Mazzy Star. Would be a good song to just float away to.
Love this one too. Almost anything by Mazzy Star.

Everything by the suicide boys, shakewell, ramirez, black sabbath , ICP, killstation; and On Impulse by Animals As leaders because it was my cousin who committed suicide favorite song. I realize I really only identify with depressing music, but I guess it just strikes all the right chords.

Zombie, by the Cranberries.. but prefer it as a piano solo. Give it a minute or so.

Sentenced - excuse me while I kill myself
Sentenced - killing me killing you

Seriously, everything from sentenced is about death and suicide.. My favourite albums are The Cold White Light and The Funeral Album. Their song writer killed himself after the funeral album. Finnish metal is awesome.

Definitely one of mine, as well.
Looking back at my list, I guess it's pretty obvious what decade most of my musical tastes formed in. haha
