help me pick a song

for my poly-sci class this weds our prof is wrapping up by playing some music in class about the topic "alienation". i asked him what songs he was playing and he said a couple beatles songs and some bruce springsteen. now aside from his choices being terribly lame and cleche i decided that you NEED to include a metal song in this because metal is counter culture.

so now i need your help, i know theres plenty of songs but im drawing a blank right now, find me a metal song that has lyrics that would describe feelings of alienation. id like it to be musically good, but the lyrics will be the main point of focus here, so as long as the lyrics arent over the top with obscenities it should be ok.

so lets see what you guys know. ill need your suggestions before weds night.

i was thinking of something more along the lines of "overkill - fuck you" than "lol - wut"

Damn, that's a good answer.


Hear's the scary one: take in some Blut Aus Nord. It will leave emotional scars on somebody in that classroom.

If you're into Evergrey, this should be an open and shut case.
