''Pray

** "Isolation" has an incredibly moving and personal verse that will move you to tears if you're unprepared. It sounds like Ian is unable to move past some sort of past trauma and any attempt to do so just deepens his feelings of self-loathing.
---> ''Mother, I tried, please believe me.'' \\
''I'm doing the best that I can.'' \\
''I'm ashamed of the things I've been put through.'' \\
''I'm ashamed of the person I am.''

*** "Ceremony" especially. Next to "In a Lonely Place", it was one of the last songs Ian recorded with the band before his death and really gives a depressing haunting vibe.
** "The Eternal", which just ''screams'' Ian's own funeral.


Added DiffLines:

** Arguably Ian's death holds a big curtain over the band. While he wasn't the best person out there, he wasn't ''really''a bad person: He was quiet, meek, and a somber person, but the pressure of a growing band mixed with his depression/epilepsy and his collapsing marriage with Deborah just kept pushing him over the edge until he took his life, leaving behind a dark legacy of his haunting and sad lyrics, coupled with leaving behind his daughter. ''Damn''.

** In 2017, Music/ChrisCornell, former lead singer for Music/Soundgarden and Audioslave, also hung himself on May 18 ... the same date as Ian's suicide. Some fans do not think his choice of method and date was at all a coincidence.

** The band members' reaction to Ian's suicide can be considered this as well. For one thing, they ''didn't know he was at the verge of suicide''. They all have seen regretted not realizing what Ian was feeling, especially Stephan, who feels they could have prevented Ian's death...
