Riza's Music Room

{Riza: Hi everybody! Welcome to my music room! I get to handle this page since none of these other losers know anything about good music. Or any music, actually.

Xan: That's not true, we have music, it just doesn't sound anything like this Earth stuff you've got.

Riza: Yeah, what exactly does music sound like around here?

Xan: *thinks* Hmm...I'm not sure how to describe it...

Dae: It's not really common. Whatever you Earth weirdos use to record it, we don't have here.

Riza: You guys really need to get with the times.

Dae: *eye roll* We are with the times. Our times. Not yours.

Riza: *sticks tongue out* Whatever. Let's get on with this.

Dae and Xan: *shrug* We tried.}

DreamCatcher Soundtrack

{Riza: Ok, while I've been running around on this crazy otherworld adventure, a lot of stuff's happened. Well, I took the liberty to write it all down, organize it into a list of important events, and pick a song to go with each one. Hence, soundtrack. Anyway, all the event titles below link to a Youtube video or other method of actually hearing the song in question. I listen to a lot, so the stuff on this list'll span a lot of genres. I'll update this page periodically with new events and new songs as stuff happens. Anyway! Here goes.}

Track 1: Prologue/The Beginning
Song: "The Adventure" - Angels & Airwaves

"I want to have the same last dream again,
The one where I wake up and I'm alive.
Just as the four walls close me within,
My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight.
I'm the first to know,
My dearest friends,
Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that's dead shall be re-grown,
And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
You will be fine.

Hey, oh, here I am, and here we go,
Life's waiting to begin."

Track 2: Human Riza/The Real World
Song: "A Place In This World" - Taylor Swift

"I don't know what I want, so don't ask me
Cause I'm still trying to figure it out
Don't know what's down this road, I'm just walking
Trying to see through the rain coming down
Even though I'm not the only one
Who feels the way I do

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know
I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on
I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in
This world."

Track 3: School & Friends
Song: "What A Wonderful World" - The Clarks (Louis Armstrong cover)

"I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world."

Hazu's Note: This choice was exceedingly sarcastic :P

Track 4: Not So Imaginary
Song: "Must Be Dreaming" - Frou Frou

"Pay close attention
Don't listen to me from now
George'll be flying this one
And it's anyone's guess how he does
This is the right turn, wrong universe
Taking me in full bloom
Fireball, careful with that
There, see what you made me do

I must be dreaming, or
We're onto something
I must be dreaming, for
I don't fall in love lawlessly
I must be dreaming, or
Pinch me to waking
So undeniably yours
As long as I'm losing it so completely."

Hazu's Note: I picked this one less for the lyrics and more for the music and feel of the song. Go listen to it, you'll see what I mean.

Track 5: Welcome to Rokenthia
Song: "High Five" - Big & Rich

"Run, and I will run with you
Faster than light can move, and as far as you want to
Wings, maybe we don't have wings
But we can do anything, anything

Look at me I'm dreamin'
I just gave the moon a high five
Don't you know that freedom
Freedom is a place in your mind."

Track 6: Attack of the Rat Demons (Thief Kid Saves the Day)
Song: "Survive" - Rise Against
(Heads Up-Explicit Lyrics)

"An obvious disinterest, a barely managed smile
A deep nod in agreement, a status quo exile
I shirk my obligations, I miss all your deadlines
I excel at quitting early, and f***ing up my life

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are."

Track 7: Returning The Favor (Daemian)
Song: "Sympathy" - Goo Goo Dolls

"It's hard to lead the life you choose
(All I wanted)
When all your luck's run out on you.
(All I wanted)
And you can't see when all your dreams are coming true

Oh yeah, it's easy to forget, yeah
You choke on the regrets, yeah
Who the hell did I think I was?

Stranger than your sympathy
And all these thoughts you stole from me
I'm not sure where I belong
Nowhere's home and I'm all wrong

And I wasn't all the things
I tried to make believe I was,
And I wouldn't be the one to kneel
Before the dreams I wanted,
And all the talk and all the lies
Were all the empty things disguised as me

Yeah...

Stranger than your sympathy,
Stranger than your sympathy."

Track 8: New Frien-emy (Lunos)
Song: "Bounty Hunter" - Molly Hatchet

"Did you know that five hundred dollars'll get your head blowed off? It will, ha ha ha!"

Hazu's Note: That line is seriously all that's needed for this one XD

Track 9: Hunters (Luna/Lunos Grudge Match)
Song: "The Hell Song" - Sum 41

"Everybody's got their problems,
Everybody says the same thing to you.
It's just a matter of how you solve them,
And knowing how to change the things you've been through.

I feel I've come to realize,
How fast life can be compromised.
Step back to see what's going on,
I can't believe this happened to you.
This happened to you.

It's just a problem that we're faced with, am I
Not the only one who hates to stand by.
Complications ended first in this line,
With all these pictures running through my mind.

Knowing endless consequences,
I feel so useless in this.
Get back, step back, and as for me,
I can't believe.

Part of me, won't agree,
Cause I don't know if it's for sure.
Suddenly, suddenly
I don't feel so insecure.

Part of me, won't agree,
Cause I don't know if it's for sure.
Suddenly, suddenly
I don't feel so insecure.
Anymore,
So

Everybody's got their problems,
Everybody says the same thing to you.
It's just a matter of how you solve them,
What else are we supposed to do?

Part of me, won't agree,
Cause I don't know if it's for sure.
Suddenly, suddenly
I don't feel so insecure.

Part of me, won't agree,
Cause I don't know if it's for sure.
Suddenly, suddenly
I don't feel so insecure.
Anymore

Why do things that matter the most,
Never end up being what we chose?
(Anymore)
Now that I find knowing so bad,
I don't think I knew what I had.
(Anymore)

Why do things that matter the most,
Never end up being what we chose?
(Anymore)
Now that I find knowing so bad,
I don't think I knew what I had."

Track 10: The Horse (Arashi)
Song: "Get Off My Back" - Bryan Adams (Spirit Soundtrack)

"You know it's all just a game that I'm playing
Don't think that you can't find a way in,
That's what I'm saying
Oh, but if you want to have a go,
I just want to let you know

Oh, get off my back, and into my game
Get out of my way, and outta my brain
Get out of my face, or give it your best shot
I think it's time you better face the fact,
Get off of my back!"

Hazuâ's Note: I really didn't want to pick a song that was already off of a soundtrack for this...but it's just...too...perfect :P.

Track 11: Young Mr. Relecross (Xan)
Song: "Bounce" - Bon Jovi

"This ain't no game; I play it hard
Kicked around, cut, stitched and scarred
I'll take the hit, but not the fall
I know no fear, still standing tall
You can call it karma, call it luck
Me, I just don't give a

Bounce, Bounce
Nothing's gonna keep me down
Bounce, Bounce
Stand up, shout it out

Bounce, Bounce
I play hard, I play to win
Count me out, count me in
I'll be bouncing back again"

Track 12: Welcome to The Base
Song: "This Is Home" - Switchfoot

"Belief over misery,
I've seen the enemy.
And I won't go back,
Back to how it was.

I've got my heart set on what happens next.
I got my eyes wide,
It's not over yet.
We're a miracle,
And we're not alone.

Yeah, this is home.
Now I'm finally where I belong,
Where I belong.
Yeah, this is home,
I've been searching for a place of my own,
Now I've found it.
Maybe this is home,
Yeah, this is home.

And now,
After all my searching,
After all my questions,
I'm gonna call it home.
I got a brand new mindset,
I can finally see the sunset
I'm gonna call it home."

Hazu's Note: Yeah, I stole another song from an existing soundtrack :P Though in all fairness, I didn't know this song was from Narnia when I first heard it and picked it out for this.

Track 13: Life In Rokenthia ("Man, I Love It Here")
Song: "The Good Life" - Valencia

"I barely got to sleep last night,
But don't worry girl,
I still had that dream again.

The dream where I'm in a perfect world,
With perfect blue skies,
Where no one dies,
And we spend forever
Livin' in love,
Nothing could be better
Than a perfect world
With a perfect girl;
We'd have so much time
Living out the good life.

From the moment my
Feet touched sand,
To the perfect skies
Up in the tall mountains.

It felt so good to roll the windows down,
Drive alone until we find ourselves.
And we'll go back to the life we wanna lead,
Then we'll go back to the way things used to be.

We'll find a way to make it right,
We're gonna live our lives,
Step by step, we'll make it as we sing...

Don't ever forget
All the sleepless nights,
We stayed up late until the sun would rise.
No matter how far you get,
I'll be a step behind to catch you when you fall down.

I met great friends,
I've seen great times,
I've been in love,
And I've seen love die.

But nothing's as good
As when I close my eyes,
And feel that road that's lead me through this life
It's a good life,
(Good life)
Just get me on my feet.
It's a good life,
(Good life)
But I'm living in a dream where
I'll take a chance on every breath,
Like it's my last.
Step by step,
We'll make it as we sing..."

{Riza: That's it for now. I'll update this periodically when cool new stuff happens and I pick out music for it. Till then, later. :D}
