I recently made a new alt (because I really needed one :roll: ) and I've found a song already that fits her. Also I've been digging this artist lately.

Lark- "Better" by Plumb

You live inside a dream
Everything tastes so sweet
As long as it agrees with how you feel
You're dancing in your sleep
'Til all the eyes that look at me
awaken your anxieties
You're so afraid, so you try to break me, yeah

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
you lash out and blame
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me
But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better

Your face looks so green
When the sun is shining differently
And you're standing in the shade
'Cause face to face you're sweet
Like candy sticking to my teeth
But underneath so damaging
There is no strength in trying to break me, no

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
you lash out and blame
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me
But in the end, what leaves you broken
in the end, makes you better

Yeah, I don't want to hate
I don't want to be broken
I don't want to hate you
I don't want to hate
I don't want to be broken
I don't want to hate you

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
You lash out and blame
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me
But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better
Will you carry me down the aisle that final day
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain

This has nothing to do with Bricu.

I mean, look at the lyrics.

You have broken me all the way down
Down upon my knees
And you have broken me all the way now
You'll be the last you'll see

And some fight you gave
When I pushed you away
From me

And in the morning
When you turn in
I'll be far to sea

And you have broken me all the way down
You'll be the last you'll see

And what chance have we got
When you missed every shot
For me

And in the morning
When you turn in
I'll be out of reach

And in the darkness
When you find this
I'll be far to sea

And you have broken me all the way down
You'll be the last you'll see

--
I expect the parties described by this song to retaliate in kind.
I drink to keep you pretty

While the specific situation in this song isn't something that's happened to the Riders (yet), it's pretty much a masterful summation of how they roll.

"The Family Way" - The Men They Couldn't Hang

Been in jail for twenty years,
it was twenty years ago
Fought a man with my bare hands,
killed him with a blow
I'd searched the bars and
betting shops in every part of time
Swore that night he'd wear a suit
of pinewood six feet down

Chorus:
A changing world keeps moving fast
My yesterday's tomorrow's in the past
When it's one against the rest
It always puts you to the test
But I swear I'd do it all again today
Because it's the family way

In hospital my brother lay
just looking at his wounds
They caught him down by
London Bridge one Friday afternoon
It was the strangeness of his accent,
the bareness of his purse
Because there was but one of him
and three to do their worst

(Chorus)

My brother died and left behind
a girl bearing a child
She broke down at the funeral
to see his face defiled
She wears the silver ring
of a fiancee
Both were taken to our home,
shown the family way

(Chorus)

When I get out a week today
I'll the London train
There's two men there who've
bought a share in twenty years of pain
In this old world of kith & kin
are all that's on your side
Twenty years won't matter when
the matter's put to rights
Now hang me by this golden noose
'Cause I never been nothin' but your golden goose
Silver tongue don't fail me now
And I'll make my way back to you somehow

Another Riders song. I heard him do this live the other night and OMG.

Mark Knopfler, "Piper to the End"

When I leave this world behind me
to another I will go
And if there are no pipes in heaven
I'll be going down below
If friends in time be severed
someday we will meet again
I'll return to leave you never
be a piper to the end

This has been a day to die for
Now the day is almost done
Up above, a quiet seabird
turns to face the setting sun
Now the evening dove is calling
and all the hills are burning red
And before the night comes falling
clouds are lined with golden thread

We watched the fires together
shared our quarters for a while
walked the dusty roads together
came so many miles

This has been a day to die on
Now the day is almost done
Here the pipes will lay beside me
silent with the battle drum
If friends in time be severed
someday we will meet again
I'll return to leave you never
be a piper to the end

This is the song that has been in my head regarding the final battle with Arthas itself and Tif's part in it for a long time.

KMFDM - Last Things

Wake-up tired with a mouth full of nothing
Deceived distressed by the truth they've been withholding
Televisionary popular identity
Getting closer to the minute of our gravity

I sometimes ask myself did I speak my mind
Or shut my mouth
Was I a follower a leader insignificant
Mere shadow of a ghost bearing innocence

Constative voices preach
Talk of truth in their political speak
Carry on 'til they're blue in the face
And my point of view has lost its place

Last things
Did I give nothing in return
Stand up for a cause
Give permission to a mute war

Call me ignorant maybe I was never smart
Like a wolf running high on adrenaline
All the while in the dim with a low hum
Rising up growing loud I can hear them

Religious left and right
Power hungry heads of state
Melancholy death fall of our nemesis
Strong will survive or so say our presidents

43242 code 1
Troops move forward let it all be done
Beginning of the end soil has been tread
Mother daughter father song sky burns death
Premonition, television stuttering indecision
We the people citizen’s lies are being force fed
Money power cruelty blood is shed in our streets
When where does the sacrifice end

We're falling fast from the war inspired
Double standard idiots
Helter-skelter henchmen
Consequences catastrophic

Lead us not into temptation with your
Damning words and glorified hatred

A vengeful lineage
We will bear alone to our death
I'm all man and all machine, a little sicko, little mean
I rock your brains out and you're sure to be damned
I lick your little finger then chew up your hand
for that's who I am: The Biomechanic man.

I haven't been able to get Finntroll's Trollhammeren out of my head when trying to write recently, as with a little tweaking, would be great for some of the more hectic pub moments for the Boomsticks. Hell, for the last week, I almost want to force a bar fight just so I can blast it during that time.

This makes me think of Pitch and Lark-

Better Off Now- by Pillar

All of this is changing
None of this seems real
I just keep on waiting
To see if I can feel
Something like an angel watching over me
Maybe that's exactly what's in front of me

'Cause I'm better off now
Since you came around
You've gone and shown me
Everything I needed just to see that I am
Better off now
Since you came around
All I had to do is see what I could be
So I could know I'm
Better off now

I've wasted so much time now
Just to try and find
The answer to the question
I've tried so hard to hide
I never knew emotions
Could ever run this high
I was so far down
I lost the will to try

But I'm better off now
Since you came around
You've gone and shown me
Everything I needed just to see that I am
Better off now
Since you came around
All I had to do is see what I could be
So I could know I'm
Better off now

Day after day
I threw it all away
I'm never turning back
That way again

'Cause I'm better off now
Since you came around
You've gone and shown me
Everything I needed just to see that I am
Better off now
Since you came around
All I had to do is see what I could be
So I could know I'm
Better off now

And this reminds me of Pitch and Shaurria, for some reason-

Arise- by Flyleaf

Tell the swine
We will make it out alive
There's a note in the pages of the book
So Sleep tonight,
We'll sleep dreamlessly this time
When we awake we'll know that everything's alright

And sing to me about the end of the world
End of these hammers and needles for you

Hold on to the world we all remember fighting for,
There's still strength left in us yet
Hold on to the world we all remember dying for,
There's still hope left in it yet

The snow on your face, and your razor blades
The twilight is bruised and there you lie

And sing to me, about the end of the world
End of these hammers and needles for you
We'll cry tonight, but in the morning we are new
Stand in the sun, we'll dry your eyes

Hold on to the world we all remember fighting for,
There's still strength left in us yet
Hold on to the world we all remember dying for,
There's still hope left in it yet

And sing
Sing
Arise

Arise and be,
all that you dreamed, all that you dreamed

The only song I have found that seems to fit Windstar has been Hope, by Apocolyptica
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AODABHuLjRQ&NR=1

Kal has 2 that fit her pretty good-

Breaking Benjamin's I Will Not Bow
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShtAtZEMGUY

Fall

Now the dark begins to rise
Save your breath, it's far from over
Leave the lost and dead behind
Now's your chance to run for cover

I don't wanna change the world
I just wanna leave it colder
Light the fuse and burn it up
Take the path that leads to nowhere

All is lost again
But I'm not giving in

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away

Fall

Watch the end through dying eyes
Now the dark is taking over
Show me where forever dies
Take the fall and run to Heaven

All is lost again
But I'm not giving in

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I'll survive, paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I'm not proud, cold-blooded, fake
I will shut the world away

And Pillar's Not Without a Fight
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_79cyDHCYo

There's a hole in my heart that's bleeding, but it's giving me strength I needed
To carry on, I'm moving on, I'm not giving up that easily
I can see the black cloud breaking, It does not stop the scars from aching
I'm standing strong, it won't be long, until I see you face to face

I'm not going down that easy, it takes more than that just to break me.
Im not going down without bleeding. I'm not going down, Down without a FIGHT

It never mattered what I took for chances, It never mattered where I looked for answers
I'm taking the blame, this isn't a game, I just can't watch you fake it

I'm not going down that easy, it takes more than that just to break me.
I'm not going down without bleeding. I'm not going down, Down without a FIGHT

I won't go down without a fight, It's just you and me tonight
Face to face, and do or die, I lay it all out on the line

I'm not going down, I'm not going down, I'm not going down without a fight

I'm not going down that easy, it takes more than that just to break me.
I'm not going down without bleeding. I'm not going down, Down without a FIGHT!
Yesterday is a memory
Tomorrow is a dream
Today is the reality
Make the most of it.

And now we bring you a Lore song:

I Won't Tell You - Lacuna Coil

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you

I can't leave this, I am fine inside it
I don't feel bliss and I just keep hiding
I've been burnt so bad but I still play with fire
Sometimes naked truth is what I don't believe in

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I cannot get so deep into this now
I can't admit that I kinow what I know
And I want to tell you your love is a lie
I won't tell you, I won't tell you

It's hard to hear through the static again
It's never clear until the rush of pain
I'll never tell you I'm living a lie
In this confusion I feel alive

I've been burnt so bad but I still play with fire
Sometimes naked truth is what I don't believe in

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I cannot get so deep into this now
I can't admit that I kinow what I know
And I want to tell you your love is a lie
I won't tell you, I won't tell you

Don't ever tell me I'm falling apart
Don't ever tell me I will not survive
Don't ever tell me this love is a lie
'Cause I'm the lie, I'm the liar

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I cannot get so deep into this now
I can't admit that I kinow what I know
And I want to tell you your love is a lie
I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I won't tell you
"A little extra DPS never killed anyon... Oh wait."
"Still alive, I see. Clearly you're not trying hard enough."

A new song for my Bittertongue playlist:

Sting - "The End of the Game"

The fox had done running
And the beast is at bay
He'd run them in circles
By the end of the day

They chased him through bramble
They chased him through the fields
They could chase him forever
But the fox would not yield

And some saw her shadow
On the crest of a hill
And the hounds were distracted
Away from the kill

One day we'll reach a great ocean
At the end of a pale afternoon
And we lay down our heads just like we were sleeping
Controlled by the drag of the moon

We ran through the forests
And we ran through the streams
We ran through the heather
Though we ran in our dreams

And you were my lover
And I was your beau
We ran like the river
What else did we know?

One day we'll reach a great ocean
At the end of a pale afternoon

And the dogs are all worn out
And the horses all lame
Oh the hunters they're hunted
At the end of the game

Our love was a river
A wild mountain stream
In a tumbling fury
On the edge of a dream

And they chased us through the brambles
And they chased us through the fields
They'd chased us forever
But the heart would not yield

When the fox has done running
At the end of the day
I'm ready to answer
I'm ready to pay

And this river's done running
And my time will come soon
Carried to the great ocean
By the drag of the moon
