OOC: Quotes, Music Themes

Self-indulgent claptrap, go!

"[This world is] a place where whatever you work for and care about is bound to be taken away from you sooner or later, and there isn't a thing you can do about it. I was beau­tiful once. I know you can't imagine that now, but I was... and everything that was beautiful about me and the things that were all around me went up in smoke."

Mister B. Gone, Clive Barker

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbow'd.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Invictus, William Henley

"It’s a strange feeling, when you’re certain beyond the slightest doubt that you’re going to die, and then you don’t."

The Road Home, Jesse Hajicek

"Fair? Tribe is not concerned with fair. Tribe must work. Is was... bad thing. All, all bad. Is not one thing right, one thing wrong—is all wrong. Is cannot be made fair. Tribe is not punish, all tribe is fall apart, is not fair either. One death, one punishment, one ending."

Digger, Ursula Vernon

The leather is nothing without the key:
The prison means nothing without the hope for release.

—Dream journal

Leonard Cohen - "Anthem"
I can't run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But they've summoned, they've summoned up a thundercloud
And they're going to hear from me

Leonard Cohen - "Waiting for the Miracle"
When you've fallen on the highway
And you're lying in the rain,
And they ask you how you're doing
Of course you'll say you can't complain—
If you're squeezed for information
That's when you've got to play it dumb:
You just say you're out there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Tilly and the Wall - "Reckless"
Now you're jumping through their hoops
You're just trying to dodge all their questions
They're shooting bullets
Cause we all want to hear but you can't, you can't
And we all want to see but you don't, you don't

Stars - "In Our Bedroom After The War"
We won, or we think we did
When you went away, you were just a kid
And if you lost it all, and you lost it
We will still be there when your war is over

Stars - "Bitches in Tokyo"
Forgiveness like a blanket
That you want to forget
But you still crumble at my name
You still crumble at my name

Sonata Arctica - "Broken"
Burning feathers, not an angel
Heaven's closed, Hell's sold out
So I walk on earth
Behind the curtains, hidden from everyone
Until I find a new life to ruin again

Metallica - "The Day That Never Comes"
Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
But the sunshine never comes

Cage The Elephant - "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked"
There ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
There ain't nothing in this world for free
I know I can't slow down
I can't hold back
Though you know, I wish I could
No there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "Red Right Hand"
Past the square, past the bridge,
past the mills, past the stacks
On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

The Who - "Behind Blue Eyes"
When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool
