SINISTER KID - THE BLACK KEYS♫ the boy with the broken halo––that’s me, that’s me. the devil won’t let me be. I got a tortured mind and my blade is sharp: a bad combination in the dark.
ANIMAL - SKY FERREIRA♫ there was a time when my world was filled with darkness, darkness, darkness. then I stopped dreaming, now I’m supposed to fill it up with something, something, something. in your eyes, I see the eyes of somebody I knew before, long, long, long ago. but I’m still tryin’ to make my mind up. am I free or am I tied up? I change shapes just to hide in this place, but I’m still, I’m still an animal.
RUN ON - BLUES SARACENO♫ you may throw your rock and hide your hand, workin’ in the dark against your fellow man, but as sure as god made the day and night, what you do in the dark will be brought to the light.
HUMAN - DAUGHTER♫ underneath the skin, there’s a human. buried deep within, there’s a human. and despite everything, I’m still human. but I think I’m dying here.HER:
LUST FOR LIFE - GIRLS♫ oh, I wish I had a boyfriend. I wish I had a loving man in my life. I wish I had a father––maybe then I woulda turned out right. but now I’m just crazy. I’m totally mad. yeah, I’m just crazy. I’m fucked in the head.
CHEERLEADER - ST. VINCENT♫ I’ve had good times with some bad guys. I’ve told whole lies with a half smile. held your bare bones with my clothes on. I’ve thrown rocks that hit both my arms. I don’t know what good it serves, pouring my purse in the dirt, but I don’t wanna be your cheerleader no more.
ALONE, TOGETHER - THE STROKES♫ take me away. see, I’ve got to explain. things––they have changed in such a permanent way. life seems unreal. can we go back to your place? oh, “you drink too much,” makes me drink just the same.
HURRICANE DRUNK - FLORENCE + THE MACHINE♫ no walls can keep me protected. no sleep. nothing in between me and the rain, and you can’t save me now. I’m in the grip of a hurricane. I’m gonna blow myself away. no hope. I don’t want shelter. no calm. nothing to keep me from the storm. and you can’t hold me down, ‘cause I belong to the hurricane. it’s going to blow this all away.THEM:
DEAD SEA - THE LUMINEERS♫ like the dead sea. you told me I was like the dead sea. you’ll never sink when you are with me. oh, lord, I’m your dead sea. whoa, I’m like the dead sea. the finest words you ever said to me. honey, can’t you see? I was born to be, be your dead sea.
RUN - DAUGHTER♫ if I try to get close, he is already gone. I don’t know where he’s going, I don’t know where he’s been, but he is restless at night. he has horrible dreams. so we lay in the dark, ‘cause we’ve got nothing to say. just the beating of hearts like two drums in the grey. I don’t know what we’re doing, I don’t know what we’ve done, but the fire is coming, so I think we should run.
LOSING TOUCH - THE KILLERS♫ console me in my darkest hour. convince me that the truth is always grey. caress me in your velvet chair. conceal me from the ghosts you cast away.
NO LIGHT, NO LIGHT - FLORENCE + THE MACHINE♫ I never knew daylight could be so violent. a revelation in the light of day. you can’t choose what stays and what fades away. and I’d do anything to make you stay. no light, no light, no light. tell me what you want me to say.

this sentiment carries no weight - a hannibal/will mix
01 mother mother; calm me down [will→hannibal] you better calm me down, oh calm me down, use your teeth & your mouth. use your body, use it to put me to sleep.
02 the kills; pots & pans [hannibal→will] i can’t find enough pots & pans, let alone knives in my kitchen, to keep you cooking. i can’t find enough love in my heart, let alone in my bones, to keep you standing.

04 wild beasts; lion’s share [hannibal→will] i love you all the more for every fault, they’re how i got within & how i cracked the vault.
05 r.e.m.; suspicion [will→hannibal] now my suspicion’s on the rise. i have known, i have known your kind. please don’t talk, don’t make me think, order up another drink. let me let imagination drive.
06 mother mother; happy [will→hannibal] ask me if i’m happy, what does it mean? i’ll tell you that i am if you tell me i’m dreaming.
07 the dead weather; bone house [hannibal→will] i lay a road for your mind, so your mind can go, go, go, go.

12 david thomas broughton; ever rotating sky [hannibal→will] a fire turns inside my guts, & my face, & my face screws up in delight.
throat to the stars; a collection of songs for the studies of ancient greek: for the sleepless nights, the epic heroes, the lovers of plato and followers of augustus; for the drinkers of whiskey and wine; for the initiates of dionysus and the pursuers of ancient frenzies; for languid days in a rowboat, for postcards from rome; for silencing the friend who could not hold his tongue.
it’s a very greek idea, and a very profound one. beauty is terror. whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before. and what could be more terrifying and beautiful, to souls like the greeks or our own, than to lose control completely? to throw off the chains of being for an instant, to shatter the accident of our mortal selves? euripides speaks of the maenads: head thrown back, throat to the stars, “more like deer than human being.”

RED HANDS, WHITE HEARTS | A FANMIX FOR THE MACBETHS
i. the prayer - bloc party (come, you spirits / that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here / and fill me, from the crown to the toe, top full / of direst cruelty)is it so wrong to crave recognition? second best, runner up, is it so wrong to want rewarding? to want more than is given to you? than is given to you?
ii. king and lionheart - of monsters & men (we fail? / but screw your courage to the sticking-place/ and we’ll not fail)taking over this town, they should worry, but these problem aside i think i taught you well, that we won’t run, and we won’t run, and we won’t run […] howling ghost they reappear, in mountains that are stacked with fear, but you’re a king and i’m a lion-heart.
iii. darkness - leonard cohen (i am settled, and bend up / each corporal agent to this terrible feat. / away, and mock the time with fairest show: / false face must hide what the false heart doth know)i caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup , i caught the darkness, drinking from your cup, i said, “is this contagious?” you said, “just drink it up.”
iv. as tall as cliffs - margot & the nuclear so and so’s (infirm of purpose! / give me the daggers. the sleeping and the dead / are but as pictures)well you said i needn’t be afraid, of all those devils on the wall, that make a fella small, and when he’s feelin’ brave, they take his wine away, there were posters on the wall, i swear my mother saw, and i’ve been up all night, up all night
v. the gardener - the tallest man on earth (i’ll call upon you straight. abide within. / it is concluded: banquo, thy soul’s flight, / if it find heaven, must find it tonight.)i sense a leak inside my phone now, from all the lies i have told […] i know the leak is going to tell you, there ain’t no puppy in your leash, so now he’ll fertilize the roses, so i could stay the king you see, in your eyes
vi. demon host - timber timbre (can such things be, / and overcome us like a summer cloud, / without our special wonder? you make me strange / even to the disposition that i owe)i was on the fence and i never wanted your two cents, down my throat in the pit, with my head upon the spit, oh reverend please can i chew your ear? i have become what i most fear, and i know there’s no such thing as ghosts but i have seen the demon host
vii. black eyes - radical face (from this moment / the very firstlings of my heart shall be / the firstlings of my hand)you burned me, yeah you’ve burned me, yeah you’ve burned me now one too many times, my thoughts are the cold kind, i’ve got storm clouds that are brewing behind my eyes, and my heart will be blacker than your eyes when i’m through with you
viii. glory - radical face (i have supped full with horrors. / direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughts, / cannot once start me)and the sky is wrecked, full of rotting clouds, from chimney mouths spewing smoke around, and i can’t stop coughing, my lungs just won’t calm down, but still i keep grinning, as the blood from my face stains the ground
