Thanks to missballey8 for accepting this debate. I too hope that I will listen to some good music.

Song 1


My first song is Until the End by Breaking Benjamin.

https://www.youtube.com...

Here are the Lyrics:


So clever
Whatever
I'm done with these endeavors
Alone, I walk the winding way
(Here I stay)
It's over
No longer
I feel it growing stronger
I'll live to die another day
Until I fade away
Why give up, why give in?
It's not enough; it never is
So I will go on until the end
We've become desolate
It's not enough; it never is
But I will go on until the end
Surround me
It's easy
To fall apart completely
I feel you creeping up again
(In my head)
It's over
No longer
I feel it growing colderI knew this day would come to end
So let this life begin
Why give up, why give in?
It's not enough; it never is
So I will go on until the end
We've become desolate
It's not enough; it never is
But I will go on until the end
I've lost my way
I've lost my way, but I will go on until the end
Living is hard enough
Without you fvcking up
Why give up, why give in?
It's not enough; it never is
So I will go on until the end
We've become desolate
It's not enough; it never is
But I will go on until the end
I've lost my way
I've lost my way, but I will go on until the end
oh hoo, oh hoo
The final fight I'll win
The final fight I'll win
The final fight I'll win
But I will go on until the end


Off Topic Fun Fact, I discovered Breaking Benjamin while playing Halo 2. Microsoft used the instrumentals from Blow Me Away, and I thought, "This is some cool music, I wonder what the song is called." That is when I stared listening to Breaking Benjamin.

Song 2

This song is called Wasn't Enough by XXI.

https://www.youtube.com...

Here are the lyrics:

Silver can't save my soul,
Riches aren't always gold.
City lights won't make me whole,
Only one thing can save me.
They say that I'm too far gone,
Every step I take feels so wrong.
Caught up trying to belong,
Only one thing can save me.
I'm so sorry I'm not Everything that you thought I would be,
All the change that I thought you would see.
Was it enough?
Wasn't enough.
Yeah, The dream is dead And I need help waking up.
My bones ache,
My knees shake,
Your hands hold My sealed fate.
What I'd give To be remade.
My Intentions were good,
But look what they made.
I'm so sorry I'm not Everything that you thought I would be,
All the change that i thought you would see.
Was it enough?
Wasn't enough.
Yeah, The dream is dead And I need help waking up.
I can't change what I've done,
and I can't help who I've become.
Do you still love me? Do you still love me?
I can't change what I've done
And I can't help who I've become
Do you still love me?
(Yeah you still love me)
I can't change what I've done,
and I can't help who I've become.
Do you still love me? Yeah,
you still love me.
I can't change what I've done
And I can't help who I've become
Do you still love me?
Yeah you still love me
Everything that you thought I would be,
All the change that i thought you would see.
Was it enough?
Wasn't enough.
Yeah, The dream is dead And I need help waking up.


With that, I hand over the debate to missballey8. I look forward to hearing you song choices!
missbailey8

Con

Thank you! Here are my choices.
1) "Victorious" by Panic! At The Disco
https://m.youtube.com...
Lyrics:
Tonight we are victorious
Champagne pouring over us
All my friends we're glorious
Tonight we are victorious

Oh-oh-oh,
Victorious
Oh-oh-oh

Double bubble disco queen headed to the guillotine
Skin as cool as Steve McQueen, let me be your killer king
It hurts until it stops, we will love until it's not
I'm a killing spree in white, eyes like broken Christmas lights

My touch is black and poisonous
And nothing like my punch-drunk kiss
I know you need it, do you feel it
Drink the water, drink the wine

Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
Livin' like a washed-up celebrity
Shooting fireworks like it's the Fourth of July
Until we feel alright
Until we feel alright

I'm like a scarf trick, it's all up the sleeve
I taste like magic, waves that swallow quick and deep
Throw the bait, catch the shark, bleed the water red
Fifty words for murder and I'm every one of them

My touch is black and poisonous
And nothing like my punch-drunk kiss
I know you need it, do you feel it
Drink the water, drink the wine

Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
Livin' like a washed-up celebrity
Shooting fireworks like it's the Fourth of July

Tonight we are victorious
Champagne pouring over us
All my friends we're glorious
Tonight we are victorious

Tonight we are victorious
Champagne pouring over us
All my friends we're glorious
Tonight we are victorious

Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
Livin' like a washed-up celebrity
Shooting fireworks like it's the Fourth of July
Until we feel alright
Until we feel alright

Tonight we are victorious
Champagne pouring over us
All my friends we're glorious
Tonight we are victorious

2) "Welcome to the Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance
https://m.youtube.com...
Lyrics:
When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.

He said, "Son when you grow up,
Would you be the savior of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?"
He said "Will you defeat them,
Your demons, and all the non-believers,
The plans that they have made?"
"Because one day I'll leave you,
A phantom to lead you in the summer,
To join The Black Parade."

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.
He said, "Son when you grow up,
Would you be the saviour of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?"

Sometimes I get the feeling she's watching over me.
And other times I feel like I should go.
And through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets.
And when you're gone we want you all to know.

We'll carry on,
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I can't contain it
The anthem won't explain it.

A world that sends you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all.
So paint it black and take it back
Let's shout it loud and clear
Defiant to the end we hear the call

To carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches

On and on we carry through the fears
Ooh oh ohhhh
Disappointed faces of your peers
Ooh oh ohhhh
Take a look at me cause I could not care at all

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
I won't explain or say I'm sorry
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scar
Give a cheer for all the broken
Listen here, because it's who we are
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
Just a boy, who had to sing this song
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
I
Don't
Care!

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches on

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part (We'll carry on)

Do or die, you'll never make me (We'll carry on)
Because the world will never take my heart (We'll carry on)
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
(We'll carry on!)

Props to you for the great music! I love Breaking Benjamin but I actually haven't heard of XXI. Yes, I know my choices of P!ATD and MCR are labeled emo by some, but I think they're great examples for the theme of success/failure. Thank you. I'm looking forward to your next choices.

Great Songs! As you mentioned, Panic! At The Disco is considered emo, but I don't think they are that bad. I have heard of My Chemical Romance, but had never listened to them. So thanks for introducing me to a new band! But yeah, Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorite bands. XXI got their start not to far from where I live and are still relatively unknown. But I like them,

Song 1
This song is called Wrong Side of Heaven by Five Finger Death Punch

https://www.youtube.com...

I spoke to God today, and she said that she's ashamed.

What have I become, what have I done?
I spoke to the Devil today, and he swears he's not to blame.
And I understood, cause I feel the same.

Arms wide open, I stand alone.
I'm no hero, and I'm not made of stone.
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell.
I'm on the wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell.
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side, righteous side of hell.

I heard from God today, and she sounded just like me.
What have I done, and who have I become.
I saw the Devil today, and he looked a lot like me.
I looked away, I turned away!

Arms wide open, I stand alone.
I'm no hero, and I'm not made of stone.
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell.
I'm on the wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell.
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side, the righteous side of hell.

I'm not defending, downward descending,
Falling further and further away!
Getting closer every day!

I'm getting closer every day, to the end.
To the end, the end, the end,
I'm getting closer every day!

Arms wide open, I stand alone.
I'm no hero, and I'm not made of stone.
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell.
I'm on the wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell.
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell.
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side, the righteous side of hell.

Song 2

This song is called Memories again by XXI. They wrote this song as a tribute to Eric Gentry, their former lead singer who died at age 21, which is why they changed their name to XXI.

https://www.youtube.com...

You leave your body behind
As your soul drifts away
We won't forget the memories we've made
I know that you're with me
When I scream out your name
We won't forget the memories we've made
Taste the clouds
Feel the air getting thinner
Colors saturated into blinding figures
I can't look away
I can't look away
You've left us all behind
And now I have to live my life
Without a chance to say
Without a chance to say
You're in a better place
That's what they say to me
But I still see your face in my memories
I've got a heavy heart
And a restless mind
But I know it'll heal with time
Tour the world
That was our dream
I can't believe that you're gone without a chance to see it now
I still try to hear your voice
It's only silence at this point
All I seem to want these days is to say goodbye
Funny how this feels like hell, when you're the one that's really alive
I, I see you when I close my eyes
But then I always have to wake back up
I. I need you to remind me
That you are truly free
Your words are burned forever in time
Inside the music we would write
I'll keep reminding myself your alive
You're still alive
You're still alive
You're in a better place
That's what they say to me
But I still see your face in my memories
I've got a heavy heart
And a restless mind
But I know it'll heal with time
You leave your body behind
As your soul drifts away
We won't forget the memories we've made
I know that you're with me
When I scream out your name
We won't forget the memories we've made

Your choices are pretty good. I've always loved Five Finger Death Punch so I've heard this song before, but again, I just heard of XXI yesterday and I'm thoroughly impressed by "Memories".

Song 1

"Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" by Dream Theater. If you haven't heard of this song then you should be informed that it's 42 minutes long.

Lyrics
[I. OVERTURE]

[instrumental]

[II. ABOUT TO CRASH]

[lyrics by John Petrucci]

She can't stop pacing
She never felt so alive
Her thoughts are racing
Set on overdrive

It takes a village
This she knows is true
they're expecting her
And she's got work to do

He helplessly stands by
It's meaningless to try
As he rubs his red-rimmed eyes
He says I've never seen her get this bad

Even though she seems so high
He knows that she can't fly
and when she falls out of the sky
He'll be standing by

She was raised in a small midwestern town
By a charming and eccentric loving father
She was praised as the perfect teenage girl
And everyone thought highly of her

And she tried everyday
With endless drive
To make the grade
Then one day
She woke up to find
The perfect girl
Had lost her mind

Once barely taking a break
Now she sleeps the days away
She helplessly stands by
It's meaningless to try
All she wants to do is cry
No one ever knew she was so sad

Cause even though she gets so high
And thinks that she can fly
She will fall out of the sky
But in the face of misery
She found hopefulness
Feeling better
She had weathered
This depression

Much to her advantage
She resumed her frantic pace
Boundless power
Midnight hour
She enjoyed the race

[III. WAR INSIDE MY HEAD]

[lyrics by Mike Portnoy]

Napalm showers
Showed the cowards
We weren't there to mess around

Through heat exhaustion
And mind distortion
A military victory mounted on innocent ground

Hearing voices from miles away
Saying things never said
Seeing shadows in the light of the day
Waging a war inside my head

Years and years of
Bloodshed and warfare
Our mission was only to get in and kill

A free vacation
Of palmtrees and shrapnel
Trading innocence for permanent psychotic hell

Hearing voices from miles away
Saying things never said
Seeing shadows in the light of the day
Waging a war inside my head

Feeling strangers staring my way
Reading minds never read
Tasting danger with each word I say
Waging a war inside my head

[IV. THE TEST THAT STUMPED THEM ALL]

[lyrics by Mike Portnoy]

Standing in the darkness
Waiting for the light
The smell of pure adrenaline
Burning in the night

Random blinding flashes
Aiming at the stage
Intro tape begins to roll
Igniting sonic rage

Still they keep me between these hollow walls
Hoping to find in me
The answers to the test that stumped them all

"The boy is simply crazy
Suffering from delusions
We honestly think that maybe
He might need an institution

He lives in a world of fiction
And really could use some help
We have just the place to fix him
To save him from himself"

Curled up in the darkness
Searching for the light
The smell of stale sweat and sh*t
Streaming through the night

Random urine testing
Pills red, pink and blue
Counseling and therapy
Providing not a clue

Still they keep me between these hollow walls
Hoping to find in me
The answers to the test that stumped them all

"We can't seem to find the answers
He seemed such a clear cut case
We cannot just let him leave here
And put all this work to waste

Why don't we try shock treatment
It really might do some help
We have just the tools to fix him
To save him from himself"

[V. GOODNIGHT KISS]

[lyrics by Mike Portnoy]

Goodnight kiss in your nightgown
Lavender in your bed
So innocent as you lie down
Sweet dreams that run through your head

Are you lonely without Mommy's love?
I want you to know I'd die for that moment
You're just a poor girl
Afraid of this cruel world
Taken away from it all

It's been 5 years to the day and
My tainted blood's still the same
I can't help acting this way and
Those bastard doctors are gonna pay

I'm so lonely without baby's love
I want you to know I'd die for one more moment
I'm just a poor girl
Afraid of this cruel world
Taken away from it all

[VI. SOLITARY SHELL]

[lyrics by John Petrucci]

He seemed no different from the rest
Just a healthy normal boy
His mama always did her best
And he was daddy's pride and joy

He learned to walk and talk on time
But never cared much to be held
and steadily he would decline
Into his solitary shell

As a boy he was considered somewhat odd
Kept to himself most of the time
He would daydream in and out of his own world
but in every other way he was fine

He's a Monday morning lunatic
Disturbed from time to time
Lost within himself
In his solitary shell

A temporary catatonic
Madman on occasion
When will he break out
Of his solitary shell

He struggled to get through his day
He was helplessly behind
He poured himself onto the page
Writing for hours at a time

As a man he was a danger to himself
Fearful and sad most of the time
He was drifting in and out of sanity
But in every other way he was fine

He's a Monday morning lunatic
Disturbed from time to time
Lost within himself
In his solitary shell

A momentary maniac
With casual delusions
When will he be let out
Of his solitary shell

[VII. ABOUT TO CRASH (REPRISE)]

[lyrics by John Petrucci]

I'm alive again
The darkness far behind me
I'm invincible
Despair will never find me

I feel strong
I've got a new sense of elation
Boundless energy
Euphoria fixation

Still it's hard to just get by
It seems so meaningless to try
When all I want to do is cry
Who would ever know I felt so sad

Even though I get so high
I know that I will never fly
And when I fall out of the sky
Who'll be standing by

Will you be standing by

[VIII. LOSING TIME/GRAND FINALE]

[lyrics by John Petrucci]

She dresses in black everyday
She keeps her hair simple and plain
She never wears makeup
But no one would care if she did anyway

She doesn't recall yesterday
Faces seem twisted and strange
But she always wakes up
Only to find she'd been miles away

Absence of awareness
Losing time
A lapse of perception
Losing time

Wanting to escape
She had created a way to survive
She learned to detach from herself
A behavior that kept her alive

Hope in the face of our human distress
Helps us to understand the turbulence deep inside
That takes hold of our lives
Shame and disgrace over mental unrest
Keeps us from saving those we love
The grace within our hearts
And the sorrow in our souls
Deception of fame
Vengeance of war
Lives torn apart
Losing oneself
Spiraling down
Feeling the walls closing in
A journey to find
The answers inside
Our illusive mind

Song 2
"How to Disappear Completely" by Radiohead

https://m.youtube.com...

Lyrics
That there, that's not me
I go where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here

In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah, it's gone

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here....

I look forward to your next choices.

I like your first song. I don't have time to listen to the entire song right now, but what I did listen to I liked. Your song by Radiohead I also enjoyed.

Song 1

This song is called Sunrise by Our Last Night

https://www.youtube.com...

Lyrics:
Full of despair inside a darkness
Self conscious and scared, held prisoner of war
Running out of air, buried in a sadness
Want a way out of this paralyzing world
And the sound of the cries when a family's loved one dies
It echoes through a vacant room where a young soul still resides

When the night is cold and you feel like no-one knows
what it's like to be the only one buried in this hole
You can make it to the sunrise.
(Woah. Woah. Woah)
You can make it to the sunrise.
(Woah. Woah. Woah.)

Searching for a way to escape the madness
A dire need for change as we fight for better days
The hurt and the pain cut deep like a razor blade
Holding in a cry for love, abandoned and afraid

When the night is cold and you feel like no-one knows
what it's like to be the only one buried in this hole
You can make it to the sunrise
(Woah. Woah. Woah)
You can make it to the sunrise
(Woah. Woah. Woah.)

I won't go to my grave until a difference is made
I won't go to my grave until a difference is made
(Until a difference is made)

When the night is cold and you feel like no-one knows
what it's like to be the only one buried in this hole
You can make it to the sunrise
(Woah. Woah. Woah)
You can make it to the sunrise
(Woah. Woah. Woah.)

I won't go to my grave until a difference is made
(Until a difference is made)
Until a difference is made

(From time to time, there arise among human beings,

people, who seem to exude love, as naturally as the sun gives out heat.)

Song 2

This song's called Departures by blessthefall

https://www.youtube.com...

Lyrics:
Father, don't cry
It's not so bad here
I'm doing this all on my own
Everyone else keeps passing me by
I float through this place all alone
I know it doesn't seem like you'll recover
Suffering that never goes away
But I'm here with you
So carry me through
Use me as a light to guide your way
Revisiting this old familiar place
Just to see if you could find a trace
It's time to say goodbye
At least you have to try
For me
Waiting
Wasting
Away without you here
I'll come around just give me a reason
Drifting
Sinking
Searching for a way
To reach out and pull you close
I know it doesn't seem like you'll recover
Suffering that never goes away
But I'm here with you
So carry me through
Use me as a light to guide your way
I know it doesn't seem like you'll recover
Suffering that never goes away
But I'm here with you
So carry me through
Use me as a light to guide your way
Don't you cry now
Go to sleep
Dry your eyes
Don't wait for me
Don't you cry now
Go to sleep
Dry your eyes
Don't wait for me
Don't you cry now
Go to sleep
Dry your eyes
Don't wait for me
Don't you cry now
Go to sleep
Dry your eyes
Don't wait
Don't wait for me
Don't you cry now
Go to sleep
Dry your eyes
Don't wait for me
Don't you cry now
Go to sleep
Dry your eyes
Don't wait for me
I know it doesn't seem like you'll recover
Suffering that never goes away
But I'm here with you
So carry me through
Use me as a light to guide your way
I know it doesn't seem like you'll recover
Suffering that never goes away
But I'm here with you
So carry me through

I thoroughly enjoyed your choices for round 4. You definitely don't have to listen to "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" right now. It's 42 minutes long, I really don't blame you. Here are my choices.

Song 1
"Testify" by Rage Against The Machine
https://m.youtube.com...

Lyrics
UGH!

The movie ran through me
The glamour subdue me
The tabloid untie me
I'm empty please fill me
Mister anchor assure me
That Baghdad is burning
Your voice it is so soothing
That cunning mantra of killing
I need you my witness
To dress this up so bloodless
To numb me and purge me now
Of thoughts of blaming you
Yes the car is our wheelchair
My witness your coughing
Oily silence mocks the legless
Ones who travel now in coffins
On the corner
The jury's sleepless
We found your weakness
And it's right outside our door
Now testify

Now testify
It's right outside our door
Now testify
Yes testify
It's right outside our door

With precision you feed me
My witness I'm hungry
Your temple it calms me
So I can carry on
My slaving sweating the skin right off my bones
On a bed of fire I'm choking on the smoke that fills my home
The wrecking ball rushing
Witness your blushing
The pipeline is gushing
While here we lie in tombs
While on the corner
The jury's sleepless
We found your weakness
And it's right outside your door
Now testify
Yeah testify
It's right outside our door
Now testify
Now testify
It's right outside our door

Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set

Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now controls the past
Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now?

Now testify
Testify
It's right outside our door
Now testify
Testify
It's right outside our door

"1979" by The Smashing Pumpkins
https://m.youtube.com...

Lyrics
Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all
And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slipping dues down to see
That we don't even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope
Justine never knew the rules,
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made, I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of now
As you see there's no one around

I definitely look forward to the last round the most out of all the rounds this far. I look forward to your choices.

I will have more time on Monday to listen to it, so I will definitely listen to it from beginning to end then. Your song choices were great! Here are mine for the last round:

Song 1

I've had this song stuck in my head for a while, so I figured that I would use it.

In the End by Linkin Park

https://www.youtube.com...

Lyrics:
It starts with
One thing I don't know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It’s so unreal
Didn’t look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on but didn’t even know
I wasted it all just to watch you go

I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when...

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing, I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I’m surprised it got so (far)
Things aren’t the way they were before
You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end

You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when...

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

Song 2

Just Exist by Picturesque

https://www.youtube.com...

Lyrics:
Brief little horrors send men to their graves
Without foresight they can’t escape
They call on their loved ones with no avail
Doomed to fail

They scream pick up pick up
But no one is listening
Get up, get up, do you hear a thing
I’ve called you once and now I’ve called you twice
With a dead line
Well, well, this truly is a shame
But from day one I knew you’d change

I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Where ignorance is bliss
Go on you’ve got your wish
Just exist
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Infatuation takes its tole
You’ve played your roll
Love’s not real

With constant blurring I’ll forget your face
Memories fading without a trace
Wait for a relapse or something to break
Then you’ll be back

Nights like these
Where I feel real
Reality sets in and I’ll be gone again

Well, well, this truly is a shame
But from day one I knew you’d change

I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Where ignorance is bliss
Go on you’ve got your wish
Just exist
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Infatuation takes its tole
You’ve played your roll
Love’s not real
Love’s not real

The queen of hearts
is tearing me apart

I will not give in
I will not give in

I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Where ignorance is bliss
Go on you’ve got your wish
Just exist
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Infatuation takes its tole
You’ve played your roll
Love’s not real

I don’t wanna live in a world like this
I don’t wanna live in a world like this

Your choices are just really amazing! Here are my final choices for the debate.

Song 1
"Helena" by My Chemical Romance
https://m.youtube.com...

Lyrics
Long ago
Just like the hearse, you die to get in again
We are so far from you

Burning on just like a match you strike to incinerate
The lives of everyone you know
And what's the worst you take (worst you take)
From every heart you break (heart you break)
And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
Well, I've been holding on tonight

What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Came a time
When every star fall brought you to tears again
We are the very hurt you sold

And what's the worst you take (worst you take)
From every heart you break (heart you break)
And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
Well, I've been holding on tonight

What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

And if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Can you hear me?
Are you near me?
Can we pretend
To leave and then
We'll meet again
When both our cars collide.

What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

And if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Song 2
"Why Don't You Get A Job?" by The Offspring
https://m.youtube.com...

Lyrics
My friend's got a girlfriend
Man he hates that b*tch
He tells me every day
He says "man I really gotta lose my chick
In the worst kind of way"

She sits on her *ss
He works his hands to the bone
To give her money every payday
But she wants more dinero just to stay at home
Well my friend
You gotta say

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
na-na, Why don't you get a job?
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
na-na, why don't you get a job?

I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
To keep her bill collectors at bay
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
Cause that girl's got expensive taste

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
na-na, Why don't you get a job?
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
na-na, why don't you get a job?

Well I guess it ain't easy doing nothing at all
But hey man free rides just don't come along
every day

Let me tell you about my other friend now

My friend's got a boyfriend, man she hates that d*ck
She tells me every day
He wants more dinero just to stay at home
Well my friend
You gotta say

I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
na-na, Why don't you get a job?
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
na-na, why don't you get a job?

I won't give you no money, I always pay
na-na, Why don't you get a job?
Say no way, say no way ya, no way
na-na, Why don't you get a job?

This debate has gone beyond my expectations when it comes to the quality of music you put forward. I've definitely discovered a band or two here. As you can tell, I quite enjoyed it. Thank you for participating!

I love Rage and Smashing Pumpkins. Those songs have a good beat, and I can dance to them. All the other songs were crap or just ok.

[*Reason for removal*] The way white people is.
