I actually never thought I’d have a chance to get this playlist up, because every single time I was planning on sharing it, I had a crap ton of reviews I needed to post instead, or my basement flooded. So, yeah. This baby is finally getting published, whether the universe wants it or not.
If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I sometimes make playlists for books that I love. I read Blood and Sand a while back and totally fell in love with it. I knew right then and there that I needed to give it a playlist. If you’re familiar with my playlists, you’ll know that they’re usually all over the place when it comes to genre and concept, because I can never focus on a single character or aspect. As for this particular playlist, there might be some overlap from some of my other playlists, but I’ve been tweaking this one for more than a month, so I’m satisfied with it. (Which means right after I post this, I’ll hear another song that’s ~perfect~ for it.)
Alright, enough rambling. Here we go.
“There is a reason I’m still standing
I never knew if I’d be landing
And I will run fast, outlast
Everyone that said no”
“You wanna take a drink of that promise land
You gotta wipe the dirt off of your hands
Careful son, you got dreamer’s plans
But it gets hard to stand”
“From the dawn of time to the end of days
I will have to run away
I want to feel the pain and the bitter taste
Of the blood on my lips again”
“We all know how to fake it, baby
We all know what we’ve done
We must be killers
Children of the wild ones”
“We gladiate but I guess we’re really fighting ourselves
Roughing up our minds so we’re ready when the kill time comes
Wide awake in bed, words in my brain
‘Secretly you love this, do you even wanna go free?'”
I CAN’T PICK LYRICS BECAUSE THE WHOLE DAMN SONG IS AN ANTHEM FOR MY GIRL ATTIA
(ALSO A FREAKING ANTHEM FOR ATTIA)
“This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it”
“So you can throw me to the wolves
Tomorrow I will come back, leader of the whole pack
Beat me black and blue
Every wound will shape me
Every scar will build my throne”
“Do you feel it, do you feel it?
Do you feel that I can see your soul?
Do you feel it? Do you feel it?
Do you feel the beat in your heart?
I want it, I want it real
Run away with me now”
“I’ve got your back and though it’s stacked against us
I’ve got your hand, it’s us against consensus
And I will burn the people who hurt you the worst”
I can’t pick lyrics. This one 100% speaks for itself.
