Forgetting Light: An OST

As a few of you may remember, I've previously posted an OST for [livejournal.com profile] hellfire_gouka.

Well now disc 2 is ready to go.

Forgetting Light Disc 1

1. 42 - Coldplay - Shinju's theme #1.
-Those who are dead are not dead; they're just living in my head.-

2. Carry On My Wayward Son - Kansas - Shinju's theme #2.
-Lay your weary head to rest, don't you cry no more.-

3. People Are People - Depeche Mode - Shinju's (optimistic) attitude towards others.
-People are people, so why should it be that you and I should get along so awfully?-

4. Mad World - Tears for Fears - Shinju's (pessimistic) thoughts about others.
-The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had.-

5. Unexpected - Hyde - Shinju/Emeraude.
-Through space and time, the path unwinds, leading me straight to you.-

6. When I Fall In Love - Rick Astley - Shinju's romantic side.
-When I give my heart, it will be completely, or I'll never give my heart.-

7. Friends Will Be Friends - Queen - Shinju's BFFs' song.
-When you're through with life and all hope is lost, hold out your hands, 'cause friends will be friends, right 'till the end.-

8. Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold - His beliefs about Ryoko (and were he aware, his creator).
-She's a dwelling place for demons; she's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird...-

9. Both Sides of the Story - Phil Collins - The important things he's oblivious to.
-Be sure, before we close our eyes, don't walk away from here 'till you see both sides.-

10. Easier to Run - Linkin Park - Blocking out memories.
-Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past, bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have.-

11. NAME OF GOD - The Big O - Breaking.

12. APOSTLE - The Big O - Depression.

BONUS TRACK. Walking in My Shoes - Depeche Mode - Zekarion's theme.
-But I promise now, my judge and jurors, my intentions couldn't have been purer.-


Forgetting Light Disc 2

1. Porcelain - Moby - Shinju slowly descending into depression and insanity.
-This is goodbye. Tell the truth; you never wanted me...
In my dreams I'm jealous all the time. As I wake I'm going out of my mind.-

2. Human Beings - Seal - At his lowest point, he stops caring.
-Please, human being--if you bleed, they will say that it's destined... They'll be punching tickets by the minute you fall out of life. We're mere human beings, we die.-

3. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen - The changes of style in this song might be equated to Shinju's different moods and tendancy to swing between extremes. Plus, it's just a fun song.
-I don't wanna die--I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.-

4. Love Song - Cure - Shinju's romantic relationships.
-Whenever I'm alone with you, you make me feel like I am whole again.-

5. Desert Rose - Sting - In the case of Shinju, this song could be interpreted two ways. Either the "desert rose" is revenge, or it's Emeraude. In the latter case, he knows the relationship could never have a future, but he can't help but think about it.
-This desert flower, no sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this.-

6. Cruel to be Kind - Nick Lowe - Shinju's behavior towards Emeraude, after their breakup.
-Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign. Cruel to be kind means that I love you.-

7. Rage Awakened - Kingdom Hearts Final Mix - Exactly What It Says On The Tin. Shinju, when he's given a reason for life again: revenge. He believes a girl called Ryoko to be the cause of his loss and fights relentlessly to kill her. He may also fall into this state of mind if those he cares about are hurt by someone. However, it's mostly to cover for his true feelings: despair, uselessness, and loneliness.

8. Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park - Shinju's thoughts after he lost his mind. In his case, "breaking the habit" is more of an emotional suicide.
-I'll paint it on the walls, 'cause I'm the one at fault. I'll never fight again, and this is how it ends.-

9. Who Wants To Live Forever - Queen - Emeraude leaves, and Shinju believes he'll be stuck in the City for eternity.
-Who wants to live forever? Who dares to love forever, when love must die?-

10. Crazy in the Coconut - Gnarls Barkley vs The Avalanches vs Cheekyboy - After encountering his suppressed thoughts and emotions via his Shadow and Emeraude disappears from the City shortly after, it's safe to say Shinju accepts his descent into madness, with an added touch of hate towards others.
-Ha ha ha! Bless your soul. You really think you're in control?-

11. Inside - Sting - Shinju feels that caring too much for others--and especially love--will only hurt him in the end. He locks his feelings away.
-Love is a violation, a mutilation, capitulation. Love is annihilation.-

12. Clint Eastwood - Gorillaz - Shadow!Shinju's theme.
-I'm useless, but not for long. My future is coming on.-

BONUS TRACK. Ray of Darkness (Gabba Front Berlin Remix) - Lord Lloigor - Zekarion's goal is to end the world as we know it.
