Hard Jim Kirk XVIII (You'd killed the better part of me)

Playlist meant to encapsulate AOS Jim Kirk's fight-or-flight/defiant side. Some specific lyrics that I felt really fit: Flock - "Seems like you've gotten bored of the nest / You've been fighting more...

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

Some specific lyrics that I felt really fit:

Flock - "Seems like you've gotten bored of the nest / You've been fighting like a finch since you've been back / Must be the ground gravitating / But at least you've got your bases covered / Why ya gotta go and be that / Fly on your own [...] Seems like you've gotten bored of the nest / And now we're fighting over dried holy water / Must be the wind at it again / Cuz if I can't see the bottom, nobody can / Why'd I wanna play in muddy water / And find myself dirty again"

Dramamine - "Feeling spaced, breathing out Listerine / I'd said what I'd said that I'd tell ya / And that you'd killed the better part of me [...] Look at your face like you're killed in a dream / And you think you've figured out everything / I think I know my geography pretty damn well / You say what you need so you'll get more / If you could just milk it for everything / I've said what I said and you know what I mean / But I can't still focus on anything"

Musette and Drums - "Tragedienne / You were fast for a genius / Humoredienne / What a genius you are"

Rainstorms - "I was just a boy when I first fell / Two years ago a creator sewed my skin / As the thunder scared the tanagers / The blood-let of a carpenter / Filled my mind with regret / Was it something I did? / I was a half-good kid / The father of the great design / With a heart as thin as mine / Are you jealous like I am [...] Hiding from the rain, you shook my cage / A tyrant laying siege upon my home / Like the tantrums of a childish heart [...] All I knew was wrong, I suppose"

Take Down (Marfa Demo) - "I don't want to be taken down / I could rest without coming up dry / Leaving so little room for them / We often see enough purpose besides / Do a little praying, worth a little try / A fallen defense is fine / Try another plan, giving up the time / There's no sense in it when we hide / I want to make sure I've tidied up / Then lock the doors, pull the shades down and cry / We may not be back for ages / and those ages are something I don't understand / If this little week was a long year / Who's to say, my dear / Totally agree, everything is worse / But I know we've got more to go / Won't you leave now, soon enough / Not fast enough for me / We cannot take this so easy / Others will see it, all right / I don't want to push back these lies / Often I find myself biting my tongue / Making sure that we are feeling fine / Things may not be so easy for some / I don't want it to feel so contrived [...] I don't want to be taken down / I keep on trying to do all this time / Making me wander around without plans / I don't want to keep being so blind / You're a little late / I'm a little tired / We've been doing this for a while / Totally agree, everything is worse / I hope we've got more to go"

What's Wrong? - "Talk to yourself / Please make your mind up / Is there anything left / At all, all, all / Everything all at once / And I might / Leave you two times / So dark my eyes / I never leave the light on / Please make your mind up / Weary when I do us wrong / But we try [...] Cloistered from yourself / You never even try / Best just lie down / And close your eyes for once / Before your will just goes / Surrounded by the throng / A mounting wave of sound / The clamor breaks me down / The ground beneath me gone / The sky might open up"

Settling - "Go to the window, boy / Become what you would destroy / Feed yourself on dissonance / Make your belly grow / And take heed of the cry / Of all the sirens outside / You know that this will be your inheritance / Up from this plateau / Where have those days gone? / South with other wings? / I'll just learn to settle on / Slightly lesser things / Gripped on my face / Hold my place / With a cold grey vaccine line / And I'm fighting off a cold / Slowly getting old / Slipping perfectly / Into the design [...] Just take me back / Take me home / Can't find my way [...] My way back home"

Godgun - "My gun is loaded / My gun is my God / My gun has no sympathy / My gun is my God / See me bow and pray / See me bow and pray / And it's with me everywhere I go / Everywhere I go / And it tells me everything I know / And it's with me everywhere I go / Everywhere I go / And it tells me everything I know"

The Beast - "With every twitch of the brain / Comes a thick, black chain / Now see the body's a beast / And I am the rider / And whither the beast goes / So shall I"

Killing Yourself to Live - "Well people look and people stare / Well I don't think that I even care / You work your life away and what do they give? / You're only killing yourself to live / Killing yourself to live / Killing yourself to live / Just take a look around you what do you see / Pain, suffering, and misery / It's not the way that the world was meant / It's a pity you don't understand / Killing yourself to live / Killing yourself to live / I'm telling you / Believe in me / Nobody else will tell you / Open your eyes / And see the lies, oh yeah / Smoke it, get high / You think I'm crazy and baby I know that it's true [...] I don't know if I'm up or down / Whether black is white or blue is brown / The colors of my life are all different somehow [...] So you think it's me who's strange / But you've never had to make the change / Never give your trust away / You'll end up paying till your dying day"

Have a Cigar - "Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar / You're gonna go far / You're gonna fly high / You're never gonna die / You're gonna make it if you try / They're gonna love you"

Fearless - "You say the hill's too steep to climb / Chiding! / You say you'd like to see me try / Climbing! / You pick the place and I'll choose the time / And I'll climb / The hill in my own way / just wait a while, for the right day / And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds / I look down hear the sound of the things you said today / Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling / Merciless, the magistrate turns 'round, frowning / and who's the fool who wears the crown / Go down in your own way / And everyday is the right day / And as you rise above the fear lines in his brown / You look down / Hear the sound of the faces in the crowd"


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). ...less
