Hard Jim Kirk XVII (No one's going to take me alive)

Playlist meant to encapsulate AOS Jim Kirk's fight-or-flight/defiant side. Some specific lyrics that I felt really fit: Becoming - "[...trying to hack off my arm!] / [They was... trying to kill more...

Playlist meant to encapsulate AOS Jim Kirk's fight-or-flight/defiant side.

Some specific lyrics that I felt really fit:

Becoming - "[...trying to hack off my arm!] / [They was... trying to kill me!]"

Tell the Captain - "Go and tell the captain / Waves are growing high / Anyone washed overboard / Leave them here to die. [...] He's abandoned any hope of life now / The endless storms that rage upon us / Grow from ripples in his mind / He's chosen darkness over light now / Mistress and crew have lied and left him to be cold! / To be cold / Lied and left him to be cold"

Here Comes the Dog - "Hey, I gave myself a good beating / And I cut my hair / We all search for some place quiet / Even though we know it's not there / Why don't you fight? / Why don't you run? / Why don't you try resisting me some? / Here comes the Dog / Why don't you speak? / Welcome me back / Into your bones and out of the pack / Here comes the Dog / You're so pink, you're so soft / You're so undecided until you take it all off / Feel my loving tongue / Here I come / All you planned / All your dreams / All you know, gonna bring you to your knees / You dig? / All I am / All I feel / All I see / It's coming inside you / Why don't you fight? / Why don't you run? / Why don't you breathe? / You're not any fun [...] Take my car / Make me take action / This can't be taken too far [...] Take my car / Make me take action / This can't be taken too far [...] Get used to me, get used to me"

Satan in the Wait - "That bastard had a head like a matchstick / Face like he was sucking concrete through a straw / "Some faces not even a mother can love." / Says the spit and spatter of broken glass from above / "There's a tombstone where your headboard used to be." / They tell him every night before sleep / Every night before he dreams big and comes complete / Then he sees himself floating high above the certainty of his feet / Sees some gutless worm / Seeking a free ride inside the stomach of a whale / He can live without air for several days, he says / He says he knows things, this man, he says / He says he wouldn't wait for the light or the dark to fade / He says you'll want to move for the mouths of the damned elite / Their bodies are open / Their channels are open / This world is opening up / Up, up, up / "Yeah, I'm good for whatever." [...] "Here's to a tired leaning wall / Here's to the tragedy to ensue.""

Tear - "The lights came on fast / Lost in motor crash / Gone in a flash unreal [...] To watch you numb / I saw you there / You were on your way / You held the rain / And for the first time / Heaven seemed insane / Cause heaven is to blame / For taking you away / Do you know the way that I can? / Do you know the way that I can't lose? / Do you know the things that I can? / Do you know the things that I can do? / Where is your heart? / Where is your heart gone to? / Tear me apart / Tear me apart from you / You laugh the light I cry the wound / In gray afternoons"

Take Your Picture With Me While You Still Can - "In the sun my colour fades [...] I waited on a call that didn't come / A selfish talk about selfless thoughts in me / Take my picture / Pick me up in a cab / I'm not the man I thought I'd be once / My experience was all at once / Proven to me, still I won't believe / Was it a mistake or was it meant for me? / Now I'm waiting out in the rain / The sun is down, the cab never came for me [...] Take your picture with me while you still can / Is it not what you thought it'd be? / Does anybody know the number for a cab? / I'm not what I thought I'd be"

Sorrow - "The sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land / Plumes of smoke rise and merge into the leaden sky / A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers / But awakes to a morning with no reason for waking / He's haunted by the memory of a lost paradise / In his youth or a dream, he can't be precise / He's chained forever to a world that's departed / It's not enough, it's not enough / His blood has frozen and curdled with fright / His knees have trembled and given way in the night / His hand has weakened at the moment of truth / His step has faltered / One world, one soul / Time pass, the river roll / And he talks to the river of lost love and dedication / And silent replies that swirl invitation / Flow dark and troubled to an oily sea / A grim intimation of what is to be / There's an unceasing wind that blows through this night / And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight / And silence that speaks so much louder than words / Of promises broken"

Age of Adz - "It rots / It rots / It rots / It rots / Well I have known you / For just a little while / But I feel I've known you / I feel I've seen you / When the Earth was split in fives / And in your words, I / Should let it out, I / Would see you die [...] I'll keep from trying / I'll keep from caring / You are the lie / We see you trying to / Be something else that / You're not, we think you're nice / The circumstances / Of what I thought, I / Could see it now / I wouldn't be so / I wouldn't feel so / But it's a running wild [...] When it dies, when it dies, it rots / And when it lives, when it lives / It gives it all it's got [...] I see it all / And what about you? / And what about me? / Are we the lost of lost? / Don't speak too soon, don't / Be fruit of loom, don't / Excite yourself / For what you see is / Not fantasy, it's / Not what begets, but gives [...] When I die, when I die, I'll rot / But when I live, when I live / I'll give it all I've got [...] I've lost the will to fight / I was not made for life / I've lost the will to fight / I was not made for life / Now I have known you / For just a little while / I feel I must be wearing my welcome / I must be moving on / For my intentions were good intentions / I could have loved you / I could have changed you / I wouldn't be so / I wouldn't feel so / Consumed by selfish thoughts / I'm sorry if I seem self-effacing / Consumed by selfish thoughts / It's only that I still love you deeply / It's all the love I've got"

Glorious - "But I wanted more / With the cuts and the bruises / Touch my face / A hopeless embrace / Faith / It drives me away [...] It rockets through the universe / It fuels the lies and feeds the curse / And leads me to be / Glorious / I need to believe / But I still want more / With the cuts and the bruises / Don't close the door / On what you adore"

Knights of Cydonia - "Come ride with me / Through the veins of history / I'll show you a God / Falls asleep on the job / And how can we win / When fools can be kings / Don't waste your time / Or time will waste you / No one's going to take me alive / Time has come to make things right / You and I must fight for our rights / You and I must fight to survive"


While the lyrics definitely play an important role in choosing these songs, I don't hold the words above the actual sound of each song and what those sounds convey to me (in regards to Jim Kirk's character).
