OOC -- yay songs  
Since these are the ones plaguing me the most, and will likely see use in his character before I'm done ...


Great Big Sea, Process Man (The Chemical Worker's Song)

and it's go boys go
they'll time your every breath
and every day you're in this place
you're two days nearer death
but you go

well a process man am I
and I'm tellin' you no lie
I work and breathe among the fumes
that tread across the sky
there's thunder all around me
and there's poison in the air
there's a lousy smell that smacks of hell
and dust all in me hair

and it's go boys go
they'll time your every breath
and every day you're in this place
you're two days nearer death
but you go

well I've worked among the spitters
and I breathe the oily smoke
I've shoveled up the gypsum
and it nigh on makes you choke
I've stood knee deep in cyanide
got sick with a caustic burn
been working rough
I've seen enough
to make your stomach turn

and it's go boys go
they'll time your every breath
and every day you're in this place
you're two days nearer death
but you go

there's overtime and bonus opportunities galore
the young men like their money
and they all come back for more
but soon you're knocking on
and you look older than you should
for every bob made on the job
you pay with flesh and blood

and it's go boys go
they'll time your every breath
and every day you're in this place
you're two days nearer death
but you go

well a process man am I
and I'm telling you no lie
I work and breathe among the fumes
that tread across the sky
there's thunder all around me
and there's poison in the air
there's a lousy smell that smacks of hell
and dust all in me hair

and it's go boys go
they'll time your every breath
and every day you're in this place
you're two days nearer death
but you go



Young Guns II Soundtrack, Miracle

penny for your thoughts now baby
looks like the weight of the world's
on your shoulders now

I know you think you're going crazy
just when it seems everything's
gonna work itself out
they drive you right back down

and you said it ain't fair
that a man walks
when a bird can fly
we have to kick the ground
the stars kiss the sky
they say that spirits live
a man has to die
they promised us truth
now they're giving us lies

gonna take a miracle to save us this time
and your savior has just left town
gonna need a miracle
cause it's all on the line
and I won't let you down (no I won't let you down)

the river of your hope is flooding
and I know the dam is busted
if you need me I'll come running
I won't let you down
no, no

you're looking for salvation
you thought that it'd be shining
like an angel's light
well the angels left this nation
and salvation caught the last train
out tonight
he lost one hell of a fight

he said I'm just one man
that's all I'll ever be
I never can be everything you wanted from me
I've got plans so big
that any blind man could see
I'm standing in the river
now I'm drowning in the sea

gonna take a miracle to save us this time
and your savior has just left town
gonna need a miracle
cause your heart's on the line
and your heartbeat is slowing down

your feet are grounded still
you're reaching for the sky
you can let 'em clip your wings
cause I believe that you can fly

well my eyes have seen the horror
of the coming of the flood
I've driven deep the thorny crown
into the soul of someone's son
still I'll look you in the eye
cause I've believed in things I've thought
and I'll die without regret
for the wars I have fought

gonna take a miracle to save you this time
and your savior has just left town
gonna need a miracle
cause your heart's doing time
and your conscience is calling you out

it ain't all for nothing
life ain't written in the sand
I know the tide is coming
but it's time we made a stand
with a miracle



Young Guns II Soundtrack, Santa Fe

they say that no man is an island
and good things come to those who wait
but the things I hear are there
just to remind me
every dog will have his day

the spirits they intoxicate me
I watched them infiltrate my soul
they try to say its too late for me
tell my guns I'm coming home

I swear I'm gonna live forever
tell my maker he can wait
I'm riding somewhere south of heaven
heading back to Santa Fe
it's judgment day in Santa Fe

once I was promised absolution
there's only one solution for my sins
you gotta face your ghosts and know
with no illusions
that only one of you is going home again

and I blame this world
for making a good man evil
it's this world
that can drive a good man mad
and its this world
that turns a killer into a hero
well I blame this world
for making a good man bad

now I ain't getting into heaven
if the devil has his way
I swear I'm gonna live forever
heading back to Santa Fe
got debts to pay in Santa Fe
it's judgment day in Santa Fe

so I save a prayer
when I need it most
to the Father, Son
and the Holy Ghost
And I'll sign it from
a sinner with no name

when I meet my maker
will he close the book
on the hearts I broke
and the lives I took
will he walk away
cause my soul's too late to save

now I ain't getting into heaven
if the devil has his way
I swear I'm gonna live forever
heading back to Santa Fe
got debts to pay in Santa Fe
it's judgment day in Santa Fe

You know I love all these songs anyway, but it's an interesting selection~

Oh? Why?

Well, it's pretty fatalistic, but also has a thread of personal revolution and hope. Hard to explain. When you look at them all together, it's an interesting theme.
