    hey everybody, i was just wondering if you all had songs that you felt represented wot really well. i have a lot of songs that i feel do this. scroll down to see my numerous choices with their lyrics for (almost) all of the songs i picked.

    Act My Age by The Argument - for Mat - http://www.theargument.net

    All the stuff I swore would never even cross my mind,
    Starts to crowd my head as soon as I'm 25.
    I'm old enough to realize I've got some growin' up to do,
    Oh no, but not just yet.

    I have to get a second job 'cause I don't make enough,
    My bank accounts overdrawn and my credit sucks.
    I'm holding out for paid vacation days and a 401k plan,
    But I don't know what that is.

    I don't ever want to get myself together and act my age,
    I don't ever want to get myself together and act my age.

    Attention span's too short for the radio,
    But long enough to make it through a music video.
    I wanna go back to the days when all the rules were mine to make,
    Do over, let's start again.

    I don't ever want to get myself together and act my age,
    I don't ever want to get myself together and act my age.

    Why can't we just play pretend?
    C'mon I'll be your best friend,
    I'll tell you every place I hide.
    Cover my face but I stare between,
    My fingers at the scary scenes.
    And try to find a chair before the music stops.

    I don't ever want to get myself together and act my age,
    I won't ever... show me where it says I have to act my age.
    I won't ever act my age.
    I won't ever act my age.

    "Blue eyes" by Glendora - for Rand and Elayne - http://www.purevolume.com/glendora

    no lyrics

    Echo by Incubus - for Mat and Tuon - http://www.enjoyincubus.com

    There’s something about the look in your eyes
    Something I noticed when the light was just right
    It reminded me twice that I was alive
    And it reminded me that you’re so worth the fight. . .

    My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
    Strange how it turns out that way . . .yeah

    Could you show me dear, something I've not seen?
    Something infinitely interesting
    Could you show me dear, something I've not seen?
    Something infinitely interesting. . .

    There’s something about the way you move
    I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
    More subtle than something someone contrives
    Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing. . .
    Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
    Strange how it turns out that way . . .

    Could you show me dear, something I’ve not seen?
    Something infinitely interesting
    Could you show me dear, something I’ve not seen?
    Something infinitely interesting

    My Immortal by Evanescence - for Lanfear - http://www.evanescence.com/

    my immortal
    i'm so tired of being here
    suppressed by all of my childish fears
    and if you have to leave
    i wish that you would just leave
    because your presence still lingers here
    and it won't leave me alone

    these wounds won't seem to heal
    this pain is just too real
    there's just too much that time cannot erase

    when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
    when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
    and i've held your hand through all of these years
    but you still have all of me

    you used to captivate me
    by your resonating light
    but now i'm bound by the life you left behind
    your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
    your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

    these wounds won't seem to heal
    this pain is just too real
    there's just too much that time cannot erase

    when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
    when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
    and i've held your hand through all of these years
    but you still have all of me

    i've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
    and though you're still with me
    i've been alone all along

    Christmas Lullaby by Lauren Kennedy - for Tigraine - http://www.laurenkennedy.com

    I'll never have the power to control the land
    Or conquer half the world
    Or claim the sun
    I'll never be the kind who simply waves her hand
    And has a million people do
    The things I wish I'd done

    But in the eyes of Heaven
    My place is assured
    I carry with me heaven's grand design
    Gloria, glory, I will sing the name of the Lord
    And He will make me shine

    And I will be like Mother Mary
    With a blessing in my soul
    And I will give the world my eyes
    So they can see
    And I will be like Mother Mary
    With a blessing in my soul
    And the future of the world inside of me

    In the eyes of Heaven
    My place is assured
    I carry with me heaven's grand design
    Gloria, glory I will sing the name of the Lord
    And He will make me shine

    And I will be like Mother Mary
    With a blessing in my soul
    And I will give the world my eyes
    So they can see
    And I will be like Mother Mary
    With a blessing in my soul
    And the future of the world inside of me

    And I will be like Mother Mary
    With the power in my veins
    To believe in all the things
    I've yet to be
    And I will be like Mother Mary
    And I'll suffer any pains
    For the future of the world
    For the future of the world
    Inside of me...

    Prince of Spades by Dispatch - for Galad - http://www.dispatchmusic.com

    Coming back
    Coming home
    The queen of love enters the room
    Silence ensues...
    To the king what have you done to my life
    Did you you take me for a fool or for a wife

    And the kind is in his court
    Counting all his diamonds
    One by one they do fall

    Says the queen our pride the prince of spades is coming home
    It'd be nice if you could spend some time alone
    After all he's in line for the throne

    And the king is in his court
    Counting all his diamonds
    One by one they do fall

    So now just get up off your ass and
    leave all your treasures behind
    your son is coming home with you to spend time
    show him how a good king should be
    and don't ever forget the day
    when your turned your back on him and me
    still I stayed

    Losing My Religion by REM - for Rand - http://www.remhq.com/

    Life is bigger
    It’s bigger than you
    And you are not me
    The lengths that I will go to
    The distance in your eyes
    Oh no I’ve said too much
    I set it up

    That’s me in the corner
    That’s me in the spotlight
    Losing my religion
    Trying to keep up with you
    And I don’t know if I can do it
    Oh no I’ve said too much
    I haven’t said enough
    I thought that I heard you laughing
    I thought that I heard you sing
    I think I thought I saw you try

    Every whisper
    Of every waking hour i’m
    Choosing my confessions
    Trying to keep an eye on you
    Like a hurt lost and blinded fool
    Oh no I’ve said too much
    I set it up

    Consider this
    The hint of the century
    Consider this
    The slip that brought me
    To my knees failed
    What if all these fantasies
    Come flailing around
    Now I’ve said too much
    I thought that I heard you laughing
    I thought that I heard you sing
    I think I thought I saw you try

    But that was just a dream
    That was just a dream

    thanks in advance for replying!

    I think this would fit in that scene and the music rocks. ATWA by System of a Down.

    A slightly deranged Rand when in captivity in the box by the Aes Sedai:

    ATWA
    Hey you, see me, pictures crazy,
    All the world I've seen before me passing by,
    I've got, nothing, to gain, to lose,
    All the world I've seen before me passing by,

    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore,
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore,
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore.

    Hey you, are me, not so pretty,
    All the world I've seen before me passing by,
    Silent my voice, I've got no choice
    All the world I've seen before me passing by,

    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore,
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore,
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore
    I don't see, anymore,
    I don't hear, anymore,
    I don't speak anymore,
    I don't feel.

    Hey you, see me, pictures crazy,
    All the world I've seen before me passing by,
    I've got, nothing, to gain, to lose,
    All the world I've seen before me passing by,

    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore,
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore,
    You don't care about how I feel,
    I don't feel it anymore
    I don't sleep, anymore,
    I don't eat, anymore,
    I don't live anymore,
    I don't feel.


    And I always thought if a major balefire fight were to take place, Fight fire with fire by Metallica would fit there.
    Do unto others as they have done unto you
    But what in the hell is this world coming to?

    Blow the universe into nothingness
    Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest

    Fight fire with fire
    Ending is near
    Fight fire with fire
    Bursting with fear

    We shall die
    Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
    Armageddon is here, like said in the past

    Fight fire with fire
    Ending is near
    Fight fire with fire
    Bursting with fear

    Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death
    The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

    Fight fire with fire
    Ending is near
    Fight fire with fire
    Bursting with fear

    Fight fire with fire


    There's bunch of others that I can't even remember.

    A few good bands that are perfect for background music while reading fantasy.

    Elf Power, Olivia Tremor Control, The Circulatory System.
