THEME OF JULIAN
'This Week the Trend' - Relient K [listen]

And this week, the trend
Was to not wake up 'til 3 PM
I picked a few conscious hours that I chose to spend
And slept away the rest of them

And this week, the trend
Was to crash and burn and then return again
To practice the life that I pretend
provides enough to get me through the weekend

(So I say) Give me a solution
And watch me run with it
(And then you gave) You gave me a solution--
What have I done with it?
'Cause I was absolutely sure I had it all figured out
Way back then
And now it's this minute, this hour, this day

And this week, the trend
Was to backstab every single one of my friends
And leave a voicemail message trying to make amends,
All the while hoping things work out in the end

And this week, the trend
Was to borrow all the strength that you could lend
To keep my head above the water and not descend
Back to where I said I'd never go again

(So I say) Give me a solution
And watch me run with it
(And then you gave) You gave me a solution--
What have I done with it?
'Cause I was absolutely sure I had it all figured out
Way back then
But after this day, it's this week all over again

And I just wanna get mugged at knifepoint,
To get cut enough to wake me up;
'Cause I know that I don't want to die
Sitting around watching my life go by
And what we take from this is what we'll get
And we haven't quite figured it out just yet,
Because all of us are all too stuck
Strapped to a chair watching our lives blow up
Stuck watching our lives blow up...!

THEME OF IGUAMON
'The Fake Sound of Progress' - Lostprophets [listen]

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow;
If that was true, I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
So can you hear this? The fake sound of progress

Never reason with a fool-- but is that unkind?
Looks like I've lost my mind once again
I know it all sounds so contrived, but it's got to me--
You know I've got to be more than this

Don't fret, don't scorn,
'Cause I walk a different street than you
You look so worn-- I bet that life has has got you down
But it will never get to me

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow;
If that was true, I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
So can you hear this? The fake sound of progress

And I feel the way you hold, hold me back from this--
Chances that I've missed, now they're gone
Apathy is all I sense-- the feeling's too intense
Sitting on the fence, can't decide

Don't fret, don't scorn,
'Cause I walk a different street than you
You look so worn-- I bet that life has has got you down
But it will never get to me

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow;
If that was true, I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
So can you hear this? The fake sound of progress

All these words that I can't afford, never feel another day
All these times that I need more, make me take away
Tell me now, can you hear the sound of all these people falling down
Growing back into the ground, make me smile again

All these words that I can't afford, never feel another day
All these times that I want more, make me take away
All these words that I can't afford, I'll never feel another day
It makes me take away

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow;
If that was true, I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
So can you hear this? The fake sound of progress

You make me smile again
You make me smile again, yeah
You make me smile again

DUET
'Kamikaze' - Five Iron Frenzy [listen]

I'm going in (1, 2, 3, and go)
Like a kamikaze (Like Geronimo)
A leap of faith (And I finally feel alive)
3, 2, 1-- I'm going in!

I don't know if it's just me
But it seems that things aren't changing
Every day is pretty much the same,
With a little rearranging
If I do nothing, I can't fail--
No blistered hands, no broken nails
Killing time, I'm paralyzed
With faded dreams and hollow eyes

I've been waiting for a revelation,
For a moment of clarity
Conflicts and convolutions
Ricochet inside of me
There comes a time for throwing caution to the wind--
I feel the pulse again

I'm going in (1, 2, 3, and go)
Like a kamikaze (Like Geronimo)
A leap of faith (And I finally feel alive)
3, 2, 1-- I'm going in (1, 2, 3, say when)
Like a flaming arrow (Soaring in the wind)
A leap of faith (And I finally feel alive)
3, 2, 1-- I'm going in!

I am so slow to commit--
I have wasted years on fences
Is it really true the shoes don't fit?
Is it only my defenses?
What if I don't measure up,
Don't listen well, don't smile enough?
Alone and unknown up 'til now--
Need to change direction somehow

I've been open to persuasion
Wanting someone to take the lead
It's a little disconcerting,
Signing up for eternity
There comes a time for throwing caution to the wind--
And so a life begins

I'm going in (1, 2, 3, and go)
Like a kamikaze (Like Geronimo)
A leap of faith (And I finally feel alive)
3, 2, 1-- I'm going in (1, 2, 3, say when)
Like a flaming arrow (Soaring in the wind)
A leap of faith (And I finally feel alive)
3, 2, 1-- I'm going in!
I'm going in!
I'm going in!
I'm going!
