: a mix for preacher maria .
tracklist/excerpts under spoiler tag

1. reel big fish - i know you too well to like you anymore

you're a son of a b***h, you know that?

2. the mountain goats - foreign object

march through the red mist, never get my vision clear
learn to love this kind of atmosphere
strike funny poses, keep my weapon hand low
whip my head around a little, get blood on the front row

gonna jab you in the eye with a foreign object
I personally will stab you in the eye with a foreign object
foreign object, foreign object, foreign object

3. caesars - jerk it out

I bite off anything that I can chew
I'm chasing cars up and down the avenue
but that's okay

4. american authors - think about it

when all that's left is rearranged
and everything is in the way
don't overthink about it
don't overthink about it

5. lorde - million dollar bills

there's nothing as fun as coming untied
and running with the kids in the park

6. chew lips - play together

and we’re ready, but we didn’t sign
'cause you know it when it isn’t right

oh, we’re never getting out alive

7. radical face - west

the dogs came at midnight
guns drawn and eyes bright
I heard them laughin'
black voices scratchin'

8. sunset rubdown - i'm sorry i sang on your hands that have been in the grave

think I sang where I shouldn't have sung
put a flag where it didn't belong
you got a heart and I got these big, big, plans
you're a hunter, I will put down the gun

and all those searching eyes

the only way to be a
work of art
oh, to be a work of art

16. vermillion lies - wednesday's child. the court anew.

so I took my pencil
and I rewrote that whole storybook

All my thoughts
This is just another night

tab aleksy spektor, the twice-born augur -

tab oNe. ******** you. lily allen.
tab tWo. die ******** die. get set go.
I don't want to work
I don't want to pay bills
And I don't want to grow old
And I don't want to be poor
I don't want to drive in traffic
I don't want to deal with dating
I don't want to stand in line
I don't want to pay any taxes

tab tHree. monster. imagine dragons.
Ever since I could remember,
Everything inside of me,
Just wanted to fit in (oh, oh, oh, oh)
I was never one for pretenders,
Everything I tried to be,
Just wouldn't settle in (oh, oh, oh, oh)

If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
That this problem lies in me

tab fOur. mad world. gary jules.
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

tab fIve. where the river flows. collective soul.
Give me a moment
Got to get this weight up off my chest
Don't feed me sorrow
Pain is a poison I digest

tab sIx. light in the shadows. coal chamber.
Don't you cry because it all seems that it's over now
Those who mind don't matter
So it all seems better now
Is it just a game, or are we playing safe?
It's hard to say, my perception isn't what it seems!

tab Even. hello again. lostprophets.
Don't accept the blame, I would, I would not complain,
'Cause I'm sure it wasn't your own fault
That you never made it out your vault
Just lock the door, and find some time to scream

tab eIght. say you'll haunt me. stone sour.
Say you want to stay, you want me to
Say you'll never die, you'll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you'll haunt me

tab nIne. bitter and sick. one two.
Oh (oh) my (my) heart (heart)
No rest tonight
Eyes (eyes) wide (wide) shut (shut)
Shut out the light
Put me through hell again
I miss the fire
Let's burn the other end
With no end in sight

tab tEn. the horror of our love. ludo.
I wake in terror, blackbirds screaming
Dark cathedrals spilling midnight on their altars

tab sprouts and bunnies, a jamiloh playlist. -

tab oNe. carry on. fun.
If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone.
Carry on.
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground.
Carry on.

tab tWo. proud of you. 10 years.
Please don't be ashamed whether you win or lose.
I just want you to know that I'm proud of you.
Don't be afraid when your fight is through.
I just need you to know that I'm here with you.

tab tHree. possession. evans blue.
And I would be the one
to hold you down
kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
and after, I'd wipe away the tears
just close your eyes dear

tab fOur. flaws. bastille.
You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up - let's finish what we started
Dig them up - so nothing's left unturned

tab fIve. train. brick + mortar.
I got a secret window
From there you can see it all
Don't be afraid to reach it
Don't be afraid to fall
Respect the fact that everything you hate
Your thoughts, your words and everything you say
Defines you, defined you

tab sIx. we intertwined. the hush sound.
Like vines we intertwined (like vines we intertwined)
Carelessly growing up and growing old
Life was on our tongues (on our tongues)
And it tasted heavenly so good

tab sEven. savages. marina and the diamonds.
Is it running in our blood
Is it running in our veins
Is it running in our genes
Is it in our DNA
Humans aren't gonna behave
As we think we always should
Yeah, we can be bad as we can be good

tab eIght. monster lead me home. sara hartman.
Monster take me somewhere
Where I can see my breath in the air
We walk in shadows
Monster lead me home
Where there is no place to hide
Stranger on the other side
We walk in shadows
Monster lead me home

tab nIne. monsters. the pierces.
You and me against the world
Like a little boy and girl
There were monsters beneath our bed
And we were scared until we taught them all to sing and then we had a laugh instead

tab tEn. the beat that my heart plays. stefany june.
Until my oasis' gone
Sing a chime of serenity
Until twilight comes
Whisper child of poetry
Until the wind takes me
Each breath a scent of daisies
Tell of you my fingertips

tab from your grace, a book 'em playlist. -

tab oNe. i will follow you into the dark. death cab for cutie.
Love of mine, some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

tab tWo. paper boats. transistor.
We are paper boats floating on a stream
And it would seem
We'll never be apart

I will always find you
Like it's written in the stars
You can run, but you can't hide

tab tHree. turning page. sleeping at last.
I’ve waited a hundred years
But I’d wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do

tab fOur. in a week. hozier.
I have never known peace like the damp grass that yields to me
I have never known hunger like these insects that feast on me
A thousand teeth and yours among them, I know
Our hunger's appeased, our heart beats becoming slow

tab fIve. the boys are too refined. the hush sound.
The boys who kiss and bite,
They are the brilliant ones who speak and write with silver luck...
They sing in clever tongues,
Oh how my knees go weak to be the one --
she kicks and bucks.
Always quick to follow

tab sIx. past lives. borns.
Past lives couldn't ever hold me down
Lost love is sweeter when it's finally found
I've got the strangest feeling
This isn't our first time around

tab sEven. sure as hell. lunatic wolf.
We are born in a maze
And we take the road most travelled
Just know when you get to the end
You can't go back to the start again

tab eIght. hands down. the greeting committee.
Wrapped around your finger
I'd spend my whole life
Tied in ways to have you
And everything was alright
Almost, but not quite
I'd be tangled up without you
Oh, a mess
Like a nightmare and an empty bed
But with you it's like I'm coming home again

tab nIne. i found. amber run.
And I found love where it wasn't supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me

tab tEn. hollow tune. brick + mortar.
A hollow tune, within the fire.
I feel them breathe, so uninspired.
My broken hands my weary bones,
I sit my words beside my throne.
You're not alone. I'm not alone.
Can you hear me thunder?
You're not alone.

a path my own
the life and times of shun kuroda

01] Ghost Lights - Woodkid

        waking up in the fog, the dust and the pain
        and of the sunny days, no traces remain

02] Broken Reflection - Softengine

        how many days, how many nights
        i've spent to get to the end, too late, no
        i'm ready
        i've got to go

03] Emily - San Fermin

        emily, let the night take me
        down down down the rabbit hole
        dug in deep with my unbelief
        and i'm running on empty

04] The Red - Chevelle

        so lay down
        the threat is real
        When his sight
        goes red again

05] Icarus - Bastille

        look out to the future
        but it tells you nothing
        so take another breath

06] Up 2 U - WALK THE MOON

        it's hard enough just making money
        it's hard enough just trying to feel alive

07] Critical Mistakes - 888

        i want a house on the hill by the ocean
        i'd let the tide wash away all my critical mistakes

08] Break - Three Days Grace

        tonight we start the fire
        tonight we break away

Blade Kuroda

tired eyes and aspirations
get your s**t together oliver beaumont

01] Migraine - Twenty One Pilots

        am i the only one i know
        waging my wars behind my face and above my throat
        shadows will scream that i'm alone

02] Hiding - Florence + The Machine

        tell me i will be released
        not sure i can deal with this
        up all night again this week
        breaking things that i should keep

03] The District Sleeps Alone Tonight - The Postal Service

        it seems so out of context
        in this gaudy apartment complex
        a stranger with your door key
        explaining that "i'm just visiting"

04] Hope of Morning - Icon For Hire

        i'm scared that you'll compare and i'll look a lifetime past repair
        i second guess myself to death, i re-solicit every step
        what if my words are meaningless? what if my heart's misleading this?

05] Yes I'm Changing - Tame Impala

        yes i'm changing, yes i'm gone
        yes i'm older, yes i'm moving on
        and if you don't think it's a crime you can come along, with me

06] Scars - I Prevail

        they know me all too well, but only time will tell
        if this is who i am, do i know myself?

07] Believer - Imagine Dragons

        i was broken from a young age
        taking my sulking to the masses
        writing my poems for the few

08] Passenger Seat - Death Cab for Cutie

        then looking upwards
        i strain my eyes and try
        to tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
        from the passenger seat as you are driving me home
