  • The First of Me - Hoobastank

    Lucus faces the daily dilemma (which I intentionally created for him OOCly, for storyplot) that he comes from a vastly different world, both physically and culturally, than Marrach. The words from this song describe his inward struggle that resulted in the differences.


    I must make a choice
    A tough decision
    Listen to my voice
    Should I give in
    To temptation, admiration
    One leads to myself
    The other some one else
    Just an empty shell
    Just an empty shell

    It's harder than it seems
    When you're told that
    All your hopes and dreams
    Are yours to hold if
    You just give them
    What's expected
    Something they can sell
    Put upon a shelf
    That I am not for sale
    I am not for sale

    [Chorus:]
    I hear a voice inside
    It's grown into a scream
    I'm not the next of them
    I am the first of me
    'cause I can't live the lie
    I am just what you see
    I'm not the next of them
    I am the first of me


    If I can't refuse
    The price they offer
    I am sure to lose
    And I will suffer
    Sell my soul to make a profit
    All I have to do
    Is make believe it's true
    That something I can't do
    That something I can't do

    [Chorus:]
    I hear a voice inside
    It's grown into a scream
    I'm not the next of them
    I am the first of me
    'cause I can't live the lie
    I am just what you see
    I'm not the next of them
    I am the first of me


    So when the waiting's gone
    This time to face the truth
    You know your good enough
    Deep down inside of you

    You're finally woken up
    If only just to prove
    You're born to lead the way
    Then be the first of you
    "It is more honorable to be raised to a throne than to be born to one. Fortune bestows the one, merit obtains the other."
    - Petrarch


    "So far as he is able, a prince should stick to the path of good but, if the necessity arises, he should know how to follow evil."
    - Niccolo Machiavelli

    "Know thy enemy, know thy self. A thousand battles, a thousand victories."

    • I AM A ROCK by Simon and Garfunkel

      Etaine's current face-the-world song:

      A winters day
      In a deep and dark December;
      I am alone,
      Gazing from my window to the yard below
      On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
      I am a rock,
      I am an island.

      I've built walls,
      A fortress deep and mighty,
      That none may penetrate.
      I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
      Its laughter and its loving I disdain.
      I am a rock,
      I am an island.

      Dont talk of love,
      But I've heard the words before;
      Its sleeping in my memory.
      I won't disturb the slumber, of feelings that have died.
      If I never loved, I never would have cried.
      I am a rock,
      I am an island.

      I have my books
      And my poetry to protect me;
      I am shielded in my armor,
      Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
      I touch no one and no one touches me.
      I am a rock,
      I am an island.

      And a rock feels no pain;
      And an island never cries.

      • Winter Song (John Cale)

        I don't know that this one was used already, but it reminds me of CM in general though not my character in particular:

        --------

        The snow on your eyelids that curtsy with age
        Is freezing the stares on tyranny's wings.
        The bitter is hard and the warmth of your skin
        Is diseased with familiar caresses.

        Withdrawing from splendor and royal decay
        Among all the triumphs and jaded awards
        The angry and blazing circus of sun
        Blasphemes as the crown prince arises.

        You cannot beget all the sins that you owe
        To the people of paradise magic
        Pretend to answer passion and form
        With foreign rationalizations.

        Primroses are the jewels that lurk
        Among masks of pleasure that flicker with doubt
        Embraces of fame that's simultaneously fear
        To advance and demand to be recognized.

        The river shall flow through hollow green faces
        Of caricature's resentment etched out of the tongues.
        Both reluctant princess asleep before birth
        The classical sensitive failures.

        The worshipping wicked cling to the dark of your heart
        Lying there and wait with your angels
        Moan and ravish from dawn to dusk
        The avaricious young lovers.

        • I did it! I finally found Key's theme song

          and believe it or not, it isnt country. Some of they lyrics are invalid but the music itself fits her starting out like a country song then speeding up just like her mood swings as well as most of the lyrics especially the first four verses especially the fourth ones.

          Breakdown - Guns and Roses

          We all come in from the cold
          We come down from the wire
          An everybody warms themselves
          to a different fire
          When sometimes we get burned
          You'd think sometime we'd learn
          The one you love is the one
          That should take you higher
          You ain't got no one
          You better go back out and find her

          Just like children hidin' in a closet
          Can't tell what's goin' on outside
          Sometimes we're so far off the beaten track
          We'll get taken for a ride
          By a parlor trick or some words of wit
          A hidden hand up a sleeve
          To think the one you love
          could hurt you now
          Is a little hard to believe
          But everybody darlin' sometimes
          Bites the hand that feeds

          When I look around
          Everybody always brings me down
          Well is it them or me
          Well I just can't see
          But there ain't no peace to found
          But if someone really cared
          Well they'd take the time to spare
          A moment to try and understand
          Another one's despair
          Remember in this game we call life
          That no one said it's fair

          BREAKDOWN
          Let me hear it now
          BREAKDOWN
          let me hear it now
          Yeah
          BREAKDOWN
          Let me hear it now
          BREAKDOWN
          let me hear it now
          Get down with yo' bad self
          Alright

          I've come to know the cold
          I think of it as home
          When there ain't enough of me
          To go around
          I'd rather be left alone
          But if I call you out of habit
          I'm out of love and I gotta have it
          Would you give it to me
          If I fit you needs
          Like when we both knew we had it
          But now the damage's done
          And we're back out on the run
          Fun how ev'rything was Roses
          When we held on to the Guns
          Just because you're winnin'
          Don't mean you're the lucky ones

          BREAKDOWN
          Let me hear it now
          BREAKDOWN
          Yeah
          BREAKDOWN
          BREAKDOWN
          let me hear it now

          "There goes the challenger being chased
          By the blue blue meanies on wheels
          The vicious traffic squad cars are
          After our lone driver
          The last American hero
          The-the electric sintar
          The demi-god,
          The super driver of the golden west!
          Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind
          The beautiful lone driver
          The police cars are getting closer-closer...
          Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile- Yeah baby!
          They about to strike, They gonna get him, SMASH! RAPE!
          The last beautiful free soul on this planet

          But...it is writen if the Evil Spirit
          Arms the Tiger with claws
          Brahman provided wings for the Dove
          Thus spake the Super Guru" *
          "Did you hear that"
          Lady Avaria asks you in Northern, "Why is that, most conversations seem to diverge into discussions of large slabs of meat when you are around, Key?"
          > OOC -- Leodegrance says, "I love Keyana. She should be her own adverb.
          She likes sports, beer, cars, swearing, fighting and sex. She is crude, rude, often hygienically challenged and cheerfully ignorant and aggressive. In short, she is a young woman with the personality of a frat boy. She is the Ladette. (tvtroupes website)

                    • Hmm..... Zeon's is a hard one..... he has so many traits and they all show themselves at one point or another. I guess I'll have to play it by strength: poetry. Not exactly a theme song but its all I can do right now.

                      Man of many faces

                      I belong to a world,
                      Where mystery and surprise,
                      Become everyday life,
                      You never know what it will bring,

                      Everyday I rise from bed,
                      Looking at the clouds beyond the window,
                      I think to myself,
                      What will this day bring?

                      Maybe a new face,
                      Among those I have seen,
                      Maybe an old face,
                      Shining briefly into my life,

                      But of all the friends,
                      All of those who know me,
                      Can never understand me,
                      Because I am the man of many faces,

                      To shield myself from the hurt of others,
                      I become someone different,
                      Someone new,
                      Someone who I can hide in,

                      I wish I could show them the true person inside,
                      I wish they would know of what I am like,
                      I try to show them sometimes,
                      But instead I create a new face,

                      In the world of forever winter,
                      A world which is full of faces,
                      I hide behind a shield,
                      Like I always have,

                      Waiting for someone,
                      To break the shield,
                      And see the true person,
                      That hides from the hurt,

                      I only wish to be free....


                      Bah. That was pretty bad for me. But anyway. Thats Zeon's theme.... poem.... ya.

                      • New theme song, somewhat fitting for Lucus' more recent events.

                        You can listen to the song on YouTube, though the accompanying video is some random fan-made video I found.

                        We have fallen
                        We have fallen again tonight
                        Where do we go from here
                        When they're tearing down our lives?
                        When all they want is
                        When all they want is
                        For us to live in fear
                        How long can we hold on?
                        Can we hold on?
                        Hold on

                        There's something deep inside
                        That keeps my faith alive
                        When all you can do
                        Is hide from the fear
                        That's deep inside of you
                        Something, something, something
                        Something, something, something
                        To hold me close when I don't know
                        There's something deep inside
                        That keeps my faith alive

                        We are healing
                        But it's killing us inside
                        Can we take a chance?
                        When faith and fear collide
                        We can make it
                        Step out and take it
                        We can't live feeling so numb
                        How long can we hold on?
                        Can we hold on?
                        Hold on

                        There's something deep inside
                        That keeps my faith alive
                        When all you can do
                        Is hide from the fear
                        That's deep inside of you
                        Something, something, something
                        Something, something, something
                        To hold me close when I don't know
                        There's something deep inside
                        That keeps my faith alive

                        There's something deep inside
                        That keeps my faith alive
                        When all you can do
                        Is hide from the fear
                        That's deep inside of you
                        Something, something, something
                        Something, something, something
                        To hold me close when I don't know
                        There's something deep inside
                        That keeps my faith alive

                            This is new and probably only for a short time. You know who you are. If you are easily offended don't read the lyrics. Peace....actually screw peace. Hate!





                            [Chorus]
                            You are just jealous of me
                            Cuz you, you just can't do what I do
                            So instead of just admitting it
                            You walk around and say
                            All kinds of really mean things
                            About me cuz you're a meanie, a meanie
                            But it's only cuz you're
                            Just really jealous of me
                            Cuz I'm what you want to be
                            So you just look like an idiot
                            When you say these mean things
                            Cuz it's too easy to see
                            You're just a really big weenie, big weenie

                            [Verse 1]
                            Alright listen, I need you to focus
                            I need you to go dig deep in your mind, this is important
                            We are going to perform an experiment of some sorts
                            I'm going to have to ask you to bear with me for a moment
                            Now I need you to open your mind; your eyes close them (close them)
                            You are now about to be placed under my hypnosis (nosis)
                            For the next four and a half minutes
                            We are going to explore into your mind
                            To find out why you're so fuckin' jealous
                            Now why did they make Yoo-Hoo?
                            Giggety ga-ga goo-goo.
                            Psych, I'm kidding
                            I just wanted to see if you're still listenin'
                            Ok, now I need your undivided attention
                            Sir I have a question
                            Why do I always sense this undeniable tension
                            From the moment that I enter into the room?
                            It gets all quiet and whispers
                            Whenever theres conversation, why am I always mentioned?
                            I've been dying to ask, it's been itchin' at me
                            Is it just because

                            [Chorus]

                            [Verse 2]
                            Alright now...aww shit I, I just fucked a line
                            I was going to say something extremely important
                            But I forgot who or what what it was, I fucked up
                            Psych, I'm kidding again you idiot, no I didn't
                            That's just what you wanted to hear from me
                            Is that I fucked up ain't, it?
                            But I can bust one take without lookin' at no paper
                            It doesn't take a bunch of takes
                            For me to stand here in this booth all day
                            For me to say the truth, ok?
                            You're droolin, you have tooth decay
                            Your mouth is open, you're disgusting
                            What the fuck you eat for lunch
                            A bunch of sweets or something, what?
                            You munch a bunch of Crunch 'N Munch?
                            Your tooth is rotten to the gum
                            Your breath stinks, wanna chew some gum?
                            Yes I do sir, what am I on?
                            You sir are on truth syrum
                            Marshall I'm so jealous of you
                            Please say you won't tell nobody
                            I'd be so embarrassed, I'm just absolutely terrified
                            That someone's gonna find out why I'm saying
                            All these terrible, evil and awful mean things
                            It's my own insecurity!

                            [Chorus]

                            [Verse 3]
                            Alright now we, we're going to conduct
                            That experiment that we were talking about earlier
                            Just to see what a frog looks like when it takes two hits of ecstasy
                            Cuz that's exactly what your eyes look like, want to check to see?
                            Here's a mirror, notice the resemblence here?
                            Wait, let me put these sun glasses on
                            Now look in this mirror, how about now?
                            What do you have in common?
                            You're both green with envy and look like idiots with sunglasses on 'em
                            You look like I sound like singing about weenies
                            Now take my weenie out of your mouth
                            This is between me and you, I know you're not happy
                            I know you'd much rather see me lying in the corner of a room somewhere crying
                            Curled up in a ball tweeked out of my mind dying
                            There is no denying that my weenie is much bigger than yours is
                            Mine is like sticking a banana between two oranges
                            Why you even doing this to yourself, it's pointless
                            Why do we have to keep on going through this, this is torturous
                            My point is this
                            That if you say mean things, weenie will shrink
                            Now I fogot what the chorus is, your just is...

                            [Chorus]

                              There's one that my grandpa used to sing when he would bounce us on his knee, and part of it would work for Vestio, it'll be in italics:

                              This is the way the ladies ride: Trot-trot! Trot-trot! Trot-trot!

                              This is the way the gentlemen ride: Gallop-uh-Trot! Gallop-uh-Trot! Gallop-uh-Trot!

                              This is the way the farmers ride: Hobble-dee-ho... Hobble-dee-ho... Hobble-dee-ho...

                              Hope that helps.

                                Is it true what they say,
                                Are we too blind to find a way?
                                Fear of the unknown cloud our hearts today.
                                Come into my world,
                                See through my eyes.
                                Try to understand,
                                Don't want to lose what we have

                                We've been dreaming
                                But who can deny,
                                It's the best way of living
                                Between the truth and the lies

                                See who I am,
                                Break through the surface.
                                Reach for my hand,
                                Let's show them that we can
                                Free our minds and find a way.
                                The world is in our hands,
                                This is not the end.

                                Fear is withering the soul
                                At the point of no return.
                                We must be the change
                                We wish to see.
                                I'll come into your world,
                                See through your eyes.
                                I'll try to understand,
                                Before we lose what we have.

                                We just can't stop believing
                                cause we have to try.
                                We can rise above
                                Their truth and their lies.

                                See who I am,
                                Break through the surface.
                                Reach for my hand,

                                This is not the end.

                                I hear the silence
                                Preaching my blame.
                                Will our strength remain
                                If their power reigns?

                                See who I am,
                                Break through the surface.
                                Reach for my hand,
                                Let's show them that we can
