Prison Break Fanmix - The Hardest Things
enlarge
16 songs = a lot of work.  Please do me a favor and just look, even if you don't watch the show. Those that do watch better download. *stares at rainsymphony and miripanda* :)

01.  Welcome to Hell – Sum 41  (Michael, Inmates)
Don’t ask me questions cause I don’t got the answers
If you only knew what time would tell
It’s all a test and lessons that you can’t learn
You’ll know when you spend your time in hell

So as your blood’s running thin your time’s running out,
No one will be listening not even when you shout,
When your angels turn to devils you’ll finally figure out,
That no one will be with you in the end


02.  Crawling in the Dark – Hoobastank  (Michael)
I will dedicate
And sacrifice my everything for just a second’s worth
Of how my story’s ending
And I wish I could know if the directions that I take
And all the choices that I make won’t end up all for nothing


03.  Everything to Everyone – Everclear  (Michael as rescuer)
You do what you do
You say what you say
You try to be everything to everyone
You know all the right people
You play all the right games
You always try to be
Everything to everyone


04.  Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of – U2  (Lincoln remembering the garage)
I’m not afraid
Of anything in this world
There’s nothing you can throw at me
That I haven’t already heard

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And now you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it


05.  The Hero Dies in This One – The Ataris  (Michael to Lincoln)
As I look out at these fairgrounds,
I remember how our family split apart.
I don’t think I ever told you,
But I know you always did your best.
And the hard times,
They only made us stronger.

As I sit here all alone,
I wonder how I’m suppose to carry on when you’re gone.
I’ll never be the same without you,
I love you more then you will ever know.
So maybe now you finally know.
Sometimes we’re helpless and alone,
But you can let it keep you weighted down.
You must go on.

Do you ever feel like crying?
Do you ever feel like giving up?
I raise my hands up towards the sky,
I say this prayer for you tonight,
Because nothing is impossible.


06.  The Hardest Things – The Juliana Theory  (Lincoln and Michael)
I know you’re hurting
I know you’re reaching out
I’m sure you wonder what this is all about
You could be spiteful for what’s been done to you
I’m sure you feel it
You know I feel it too

Sometimes the hardest things in life
Are the things we have to do
And even when we feel it’s right
I never want to hurt you


07.  The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most – Dashboard Confessional  (Sara)
Buried deep as you can dig inside yourself
And covered with a perfect shell
Such a charming, beautiful exterior
Laced with brilliant smiles and shining eyes
Perfect posture, but you’re barely scraping by
But you’re barely scraping by

This is one time, this is one time
That you can’t fake it hard enough to please everyone
Or anyone at all...or anyone at all
And the grave that you refuse to leave
The refuge that you’ve built to flee
The places that you’ve come to fear the most
It’s the place that you have come to fear the most


08.  This Is Your Life –  Dust Brothers
(Inmates vs. the Bulls / Welcome to Prisneyland)
This isn’t a seminar, this isn’t a weekend retreat
Where you are now you can’t even imagine what the bottom will be like
Only after disaster can we be resurrected
It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything
Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart

You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake
You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else
We are all part of the same compost heap
We are the all singing, all dancing, crap of the world

You have to give up, you have to give up
You have to realize that someday you will die
Until you know that, you are useless


09.  Smack My Bitch Up – Prodigy  (T-Bag, Avocado, Inmates)
Change my pitch up, smack my bitch up

10.  You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison – My Chemical Romance  (Tweener, Inmates)
They all cheat at cards.
And the checkers are lost.
My cellmate’s a killer,
They make me do push-ups in drag
But nobody cares if you’re losing yourself.
Am I losing myself?
And well, I miss my mom!
Will they give me the chair?
Or lethal injection,
Or swing from a rope, if you dare
Oh, nobody knows all the trouble I’ve seen


11.  Use Your Fist and Not Your Mouth – Marilyn Manson  (Inmates)
I said no, this isn’t your song
We can’t all get along
It’s too hard to hold hands when your hands are fists
My hate pop won’t ever stop
I’m fucking glad we’re different
This is my hate America style hit

This is the black collar song
Put it in your middle finger and sing along
Use your fist and not your mouth


12.  Voices of Violence – Billy Talent  (Michael, Inmates)
Don’t wait for, a knight in shining armor
Your savior’s, reflected in the mirror
These flowers, have grown from bloodstains on the ground
Go rake them, leaves off your grass and my grave
The fact is, everyone bleeds when they shave
There’s no use, so don’t deny we’re just the same

Voices of violence will always be heard


13.  Vindicated – Dashboard Confessional  (Lincoln/Veronica)
Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in
So, mesmerizing and so hypnotizing,
I am captivated, I am vindicated
I am selfish, I am wrong, I am right
I swear I’m right
Swear I knew it all along
And I am flawed, but I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself


14.  Wonderful – Everclear  (LJ)
I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope its over when I open them

Hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
Hear them scream, I hear them fight
They say bad words that make me wanna cry

Promises mean everything when you’re little
And the worlds so big
I just don’t understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now


15.  God of Wine – Third Eye Blind  (Sara with hints of Sara/Michael)
She takes a drink and then she waits
The alcohol it permeates
And soon the cells give way, and cancels out the day
I cant keep it all together
I know I know I know... I can’t keep it all together
And the sirens song that is your madness
Holds a truth I cant erase
All alone on your face

Looking through I see you
Searching for something I could never give you
And there’s someone who understands
You more than I do
A sadness I cant erase
All alone on your face


16.  Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own – U2  (Michael and Lincoln)
Tough, you think you’ve got the stuff
You’re telling me and anyone
You’re hard enough

You don’t have to put up a fight
You don’t have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don’t have to go it alone



I really, longingly slaved over this fanmix, so please comment if you download anything.  I'd also love to hear any feedback.  I decided to put a very brief mention of which songs went with which character(s), but I didn't want to go into much detail because (1) I hope it's obvious without that and (2) hopefully you'll make your own connections with the songs.  That being said, if there are any questions about song choices I'm more than happy to answer those too!

IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN UPLOAD, PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS POST.

Downloaded. Listened. I loath Dashboard Confessionals, but the rest was most excellent.

I gotta admit, even I cringed a little to put Vindicated on there, but I felt like it fit too well to leave it out. Different strokes. Glad you liked the rest!

Live outside your head, Live inside a song: Radioheadblackstar90 on May 21st, 2006 07:50 pm (UTC)
Really good mix, I have most of the songs already! haha.

I was thinking of maybe doing a Prison Break fanmix myself, But I could only think of a couple songs to put in it - "Behind Blue Eyes" by either The Who or Limp Bizkit, as Micheal has blue eyes and you can tell some things he's doing hurt but he never said so. And the two versions have alternate lyrics at the end, so I wouldn't know which one to put..
Elisabeth: pb. brothers.kissingdaylight on May 22nd, 2006 04:17 am (UTC)
Behind Blue Eyes was the last song I decided to cut from this mix! Great minds think alike. ;) I went with the Who version, but both are good. You should totally go for it and make a mix. I was daunted by the prospect at first, but once I sat down and actually looked through my song files tons of songs started popping out at me. The world needs more PB fanmixes!
