I can agree that you don't need any specific subject in a song necessarily to motivate etc.. you, whatever an individual deems as real music is all they need if they take the time and let it sink in but you completely ruined everything by saying "the only thing these could motivate is to suicide". Like wow... Where did that come from, that is an extremely broad statement, that is your opinion, I'm disappointed in it and I know you can do better. Personally, for example, sad/emotional songs, in general, don't sadden me per say, at least not nowhere close to the point of suicide. They motivate me to do better, to look at how bad it really could have been and cherish my situation now... I'm a college student going through a rigorous curriculum that reflects the difficulties of my focus and it isn't some 9 to 5 job where you work your scheduled time then can do whatever afterwards, it is a mental hell where there are no real breaks and you're constantly pushing against a wheel that turns so slowly yet the time given to complete the cycle is far too short. The amount of pressure etc.. along with the lack of freedom/time to relax is an ever-growing burden on my mind and it can cause an individual to break down, look down on themselves and truly hate their lives to the point where actual suicide is considered, I've had thoughts on the subject and I'm sure many of my colleagues have as well. Now call it what you want, in your opinion say all these kind of songs only install suicidal tenacities, but let me tell you my opinion, it is easy to look down on yourself, to hate how things turned out yet one way I keep myself away from those habits is to motivate myself through these songs, remind myself how bad things really could have been, that I'm not some runaway train going one way on a one way track, they help me realize how much control I actually have, that I'm not bound to a single direction, it may look grim now as you enter the tunnel but with each step taken, there are countless passages being opened slowly but surely and I must hold on to what I have now and not let it go, otherwise I'll lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel and quickly give in to my fears, allowing them to close off all the tracks that were once so promisingly laid out in front of me.
