SAVAGES: A MIX FOR THE WEAPONS AFTER THE WAR [ L I S T E N ]
they take you when you’re young. they buff you and shine you and chip away all the things they don’t like; they take a heart and make it into an icon, they take a girl and make it her into a wolf, they take a boy and make him into a knife. they take you when you’re young. they take you. what do you do when the idea of you no longer exists? what do you do when you find the girl under the pelt? what do you do with the knife?P A R T I : A N T E B E L L U M
i. ALL THESE THINGS I’VE DONE - the killers (STEVE ROGERS)
i wanna stand up, i wanna let go / you know, you know, no, you don’t, you don’t / i wanna shine on in the hearts of men / i wanna mean it from the back of my broken hand
ii. TEAM - lorde (BUCKY BARNES)
we live in cities you’ll never see on screen / not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free / living in ruins of the palace within my dreams / and you know, we’re on each other’s team
iii. KEEP BREATHING - ingrid michaelson (NATASHA ROMANOFF)
all that i know is i’m breathing / all i can do is keep breathing / all we can do is keep breathing

even if i come back, even if i die / is there some idea to replace my life?
v. BLACK FLIES - ben howard (BUCKY BARNES)
and no man is an island, oh this i know / but can’t you see, oh? / maybe you were the ocean, when i was just a stone
vi. YELLOW LIGHT - of monsters and men (THE RED ROOM)
running into the night / the earth is shaking and i see a light / the light is blinding my eyes / as the soft walls eat us alive

vii. POET - bastille (CAPTAIN AMERICA)
i have written you down / now you will live forever / and all the world will read you / and you will live forever

waking up like an animal / i’m all ready for healing / my mind’s lost with nightmares streaming / waking up (kicking, screaming)

and give us your strength, world, your food and your water / oh, i am your saviour, your last serving daughter

but if you close your eyes / does it almost feel like / nothing’s changed at all? / and if you close your eyes / does it almost feel like / you’ve been here before?
xi. SAVE ME - a girl named ruth (THE WINTER SOLDIER)
can somebody please show that there’s more to it / to why i feel like this, to why i feel like this?

he trims and sews without a word / with such meticulous precision / as if upon a sacred mission / to have my happiness restored

who’s there to fight for our rights, for our hopes and our hearts? / who’s here to save us and make us more than separate parts?
xiv. SKYFALL - adele
let the sky fall / when it crumbles / we will stand tall / face it all together

as the dust just settles sweetly / on the songs that we sang / we are savages, you and i / and we will hang hang hang
