THE SON OF HADES: A playlist dedicated to my favorite demigod.
I. From All Sides by LIGHTS ♇ "I’m the island / you’re the ocean / that’s constantly killing me / when you’re invading my mind / you got it covered / I can’t get a thought in edgewise”
II. Stop This Song (Lovesick Melody) by Paramore ♇ "it creeps in like a spider / that can’t be killed / well, don’t you see I’m falling? / don’t wanna love you / but I do"
III. Past Praying For by VersaEmerge ♇ "always kept quiet / clenching my teeth / find me fighting the floor / raise me from my bones once more"
IV. Icarus by Bastille ♇ "living beyond your years / acting out all their fears / you feel it in your chest / your hands protect the flames / from the wild winds around you"
V. Fighting for Nothing by Meg & Dia ♇"make you see your hands you’re accounted for / pick and choose where your sweat and your blood will go / make you see your live’s not to be lived alone"
VI. Listening by Tonight Alive ♇ "but now it seems letting myself down / isn’t just in my dreams / you’ll have to be true to yourself / then you’ll see"
VII. Bones by MS MR ♇ "boy with a broken soul / heart with a gaping hole / dark twisted fantasy turned to reality / kissing death and losing my breath"
VIII. Sensible by KITTEN ♇ "I wasn’t ready for the crying / I wasn’t certain my trespass / all of those midnight boys were lying / oh please don’t force this thing to last"
IX. The Outsider by Marina & the Diamonds ♇ "I look myself in the face / and whisper ‘I’m in the wrong place’ / is there more to lose than gain? / if I go on my own again"
X. The Authors by VersaEmerge ♇ "and it’s all these days / that kept us so far away / we could break out of this name / we could give ourselves meaning / we were never sorry for the choices that we’ve made / not to sing in your name / but what is faith?"
XI. Careful by Paramore ♇ "shifting your weight / to throw off the pain / well you can ignore it / but only for so long"
XII. Absolution by The Pretty Reckless ♇ "run boy / be a man / with legs too weak to make a stand / we’re all crucified in the end / can you hear a voice? / decipher it through all this noise?"
XIII. Battle Cry by Angel Haze ♇ "tell them who they should follow / nobody but themselves, especially if they hollow / especially when they empty and death reserves for fulfillment / you the only person alive that holds the key to your healing / so you take it and you run with it / and keep going even when your sun’s hidden"
XIV. Centuries by Fall Out Boy ♇ "mummified my teenage dreams / no there’s nothing wrong with me / the kids are all wrong / their stories are off"
