I've been listening more to my 'Room for Squares' CD by Jhon Mayer, I used to always just skip to the songs that I was familiar with but after giving it a good listen heaps of songs have grown on me and I love them now including this one called 'Great Indoors'. To me it describes my life and longing to get out and live my life but being trapped, it's kind of sad but also very inspiring at the same time, what do you think?

(If you can download it and listent to it I recommend it, it's such a great song, alomg with all of John Mayer's stuff!!)

GREAT INDOORS

Check your pulse it's proof that you're not listening to
The call your life's been issuing you
The rhythm of a line of idle days

Scared of a world outside you should go explore
Pull all the shades and wander the great indoors
The great indoors

Lamplight makes the shadows play
And posters take the walls away
The T.V. is your window pane
The view won't let you down
So put your faith in a late night show
I bet you didn't even know
Depends on how far out you go
The channel numbers change

Scared of a world outside you should go explore
Pull all the shades and wander the great indoors

Though lately I can't blame you
I have seen the world
And sometimes wish your room had room for two

So go unlock the door
And find what you are here for
Leave the great indoors
Leave the great indoors

Check your pulse it's proof that you're not listening to
The call your life's been issuing you
The rhythm of a line of idle days

I love John Mayer.. what a hottie! I'm not sure I heard that song though. You might want to check out "Anxiety" by The Black Eyed Peas as well.

good for anyone in a rut but seems really geared toward SA

"Every Day Is Exactly The Same" by NIN

I believe I can see the future
Because I repeat the same routine
I think I used to have a purpose
And then again that might have been a dream
I think I used to have a voice
Now I never make a sound

I just do what I've been told
I really don't want them to come around, oh no

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I can feel their eyes are watching
In case I lose myself again
Sometimes I think I'm happy here
Sometimes I still pretend
I can't remember how this all got started
But I can tell you - exactly - how it will end

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I'm writing on a little piece of paper
I'm hoping someday you might find
I'll hide it behind something
They don't look behind
I am still inside here
A little bit comes bleeding through

I wish this could have been any other way
I just don't know what else I can do

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

And I've rehearsed my lines
And I know what's coming next

The Bends - From Radiohead

(The parts that I especially compare to social anxiety are bolded)

Where do we go from here?
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now when I need you?

Alone in an aeroplane
Falling asleep against the window pane
My blood will THICKEN.

I need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain
cause' I'd be scared that there's nothing underneath
And where are my real friends?
Have they all got the bends?
Am I really sinking this low?


My baby's got the bends
We don't have any real friends
I'm lying in a bar with my drip feed on
talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties
I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen.


Where do we go from here?
The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear
And Where are you?
They brought in the C.I.A.
The tanks, and the whole marines to blow me away
To blow me sky high.

My baby's got the bends
We don't have any real friends
I'm lying in a bar with my drip feed on
talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties
I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen.


I want to live and breathe
I want to be part of the human race.

Where do we go from here?
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now when I need you?

Hey, I like John Mayer's "No Such Thing" It came out around the time of my ten-year reunion (which I did NOT attend).

One of these days, I will stand on these tables before you! :lol
