For me, it would be At the Bottom or Limousine by Brand New.

At the Bottom:

I watched you throw out your bouquet
Now I think about you everyday
I'm alone now in my bed

And there's a lake
And at the bottom you'll find all our friends
They don't swim cause they're all dead
We never are what we intend, or invent
'Cause I make little lies and then I pull them apart
Think something dark's living down in my heart

And if I wanted to die before I got old
I should've started some years ago digging that hole
Well I carry this box to the proper place
And when I lower it down
I let it you fade away
I hope that you would do this for me
I'd serve you drugs on a silver plate
If I thought it would help you get away
I hope that you would do this for me

A deer that a hunter shot in the heart
Some dogs that got hit by cars
All came to spill their guts

And we spoke
About the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
And which songs we had loved the most
And then we all turned to dirt
And dust
Some men die under the mountain just looking for gold
Some die looking for a hand to hold

Well I carry this box to its proper place
And when I lower it down
I let you fade away
I know that you would do this for me
I'd serve you drugs on a silver plate
If I thought it would help you get away
I hope that you would do this for me

I'm slowly bringing you down from the Heavenly gates
Now I'm drowning in the flood I made
Well explain myself to me on the other side
I'll watch from Heaven when I die

Well I carry this box to the proper place
And when I lower it down
I let you fade away
I know that you would do this for me
I'd serve you drugs on a silver plate
If I thought it would help you get away
I hope that you would do this for me

'K', here's your ride
Get your petals out and lay them in the aisle
Pretend you are God, and grow
And that it's your day to wed
We have found your man
He is drinking up
He's all-American, and he'll drive
He has volunteered with grace to end your life
We'll tidy up
It's sad to hold, but leave your shell to us
You explode, you firefly, you tiny boat with oars
Feather oars
The world tilts back and pours and pours
And so, you satellite
You're a tidal wave
You’re a big surprise
And I've one more night to be your mother"

The signal interrupted
My baby's frequency not strong enough
Remain in my hands and smile

We will miss you but in time you'll get set up
And we will write

Hey, you beauty supreme
Yeah, you were right about me
But can I get myself out from underneath
This guilt that will crush me
In the choir, I saw our sad Messiah
He was bored and tired of my laments
He said, "I died for you one time, but never again"

Never again...

Well I love you so much
But do me a favor baby and don’t reply
Cause I can dish it out
But I can't take it

That's a really hard one because I listen to some hardcore genres of metal. But if I had to choose I would definitely go with Death.

Out of my library, "Waltz of Anomalies" by Nanou may be the darkest.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

from my collection, well it's really rather ironic that my song with the darkest lyrics happens to be a My Little Pony fan song.

here's the lyrics to it

When you're rife with devastation
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball

And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing this silly song

When I was a little filly, a galloping blaze overtook my city
So they shipped me off to the orphanage. Said, "ditch those roots if you wanna fit in"
So I dug one thousand holes and cut a rug with orphan foals
Memories are blurred, and their faces are obscured, but I still, know the words to this song

When you've bungled all your bangles
And your loved ones have been mangled
Listen to the jingle jangle
Of my gypsy tambourine

'Cause these chords are hypnotizing
And the whole world's harmonizing
So please children stop your crying
And just sing along with me

Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?

I mainly listen to metal subgenres so this is a tough one. I'd probably have to say a song from Whitechapel though, unsure which though.

Honestly, anything by Slipknot, and they're my favorite band.

A clean example...:
(Snuff [one of their only soft songs]... Apparently it was written about Corey Taylor [the lead singer]'s ex-wife, but was later dedicated to the late bassist, Paul Gray.)

Bury all your secrets in my skin.
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins.
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.

Deliver me into my Fate -
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago,
If I can change I hope I never know.

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss.
I couldn't face a life without your light,
But all of that was ripped apart, when you refused to fight.

So save your breath, I will not hear.
I think I made it very clear.
You couldn't hate enough to love.
Is that supposed to be enough?

I only wish you weren't my friend.
Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a Saint...
Ooh, my own was banished long ago,
It took the Death of Hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul.
You never needed any help...
You sold me out to save yourself...

And I won't listen to your shame.
You ran away, you're all the same.
Angels lie to keep control...
Ooh, my love was punished long ago,
If you still care, don't ever let me know...
If you still care, don't ever let me know...
"A lie told often enough becomes the truth."
"The most important thing when ill is to never lose heart."
"Sometimes - history needs a push."
-Vladimir Lenin

Ehh I listen to a lot of metal and stuff so a lot of my music has very 'dark lyrics', but I'd say amongst the two worst are Scream Aim Fire by BFMV and A Little Piece of Heaven by A7x. The first is basically about God telling someone to murder countless people by closing his eyes and just screaming and firing till everyone's dead, and the second is about... well, I'll let you Google that for yourself since it's entirely unsuitable for PC, but it's certainly not cheerful. So I'd go with those two, probably A7x taking the lead. :3
