Anna and the Huntress: A Playlist

1. "Why Don't You Do Right?" — Carolina Chocolate Drops cover
Why don't you do right, like some other men do?

2. "Come Round Soon" Sara Bareilles
I could use another cigarette — but don't worry, daddy, I'm not addicted yet. One too many drinks tonight and I miss you, like you were mine.
All your stormy words have barely broken, and you sound like thunder, though you've barely spoken. Oh, it looks like rain tonight, and thank God, because a clear sky just wouldn't feel right.

3. "Tourniquet" — Rasputina cover
I'm made of hair and bone and little teeth; I think I cannot speak. I come on like a crippled plaything; my spine is just a string.

4. "Symphony No. 6 'Pathétique' : 4. Finale: Adagio lamentoso — Andante" — Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

5. "Lilium" - Kumiko Noma
Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem, quoniam cum probatus fuerit accipiet coronam vitae.
(Blessed is the one who bears a temptation, since after being tested, he will receive the crown of life.)

6. "The Noose" — A Perfect Circle
So glad to see you well, overcome and completely silent now. With Heaven's help, you cast your demons out. And not to pull your halo down around your neck and tug you off your cloud, but I'm more than just a little curious how you're planning to go about making your amends to the dead.

7. "Jezebel" — Sade
Jezebel, Jezebel won't try to deny where she came from. You can see it in her pride, and the raven in her eyes. Try to show her a better way, she'll say you don't know what you've been missing, and by the time she blinks you know she won't be listening.

8. "Home" — Goo Goo Dolls
Crowded rooms full of empty faces, our deepest conversation full of lies. Another night with all my friends, the kind you never see again — I wonder if they'll see through my disguise?

9. "Heavy in Your Arms" — Florence + The Machine
And is it worth the wait, all this killing time? Are you strong enough to stand, protecting both your heart and mine? ...
This will be my last confession: "I love you" never felt like any blessing. Whispering like it's a secret, only to condemn the one who hears it with a heavy heart.

10. "Bad Moon Rising" — Rasputina cover
So don't go around tonight — it's bound to take your life. There's a bad moon on the rise.

11. "Skin" — Sade
Now as I begin to wash you off my skin, I'm gonna peel you away — 'cause you're not right within. Now it's time to wash you off my skin.

12. "Blinding" — Florence + The Machine
And I could hear the thunder, and see the lightning crack. All around, the world was waking; I never could go back. 'Cause all the walls of dreaming, they were torn wide open, and finally it seemed that the spell was broken.
...No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone. No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden. No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world.

13. "Invasion" — Eisley
Ooh, something's not right. I can feel it inside — something's not right.
And you might take the breath from my throat, and you might take the cherished people that I hold.

14. "Howl" — Florence + The Machine
If you could only see the beast you've made of me — I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free. The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound, I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallowed ground.

15. "Glittering Clouds (Locusts)" — Imogen Heap
I'm not always like this, it's something I've become — a terrible weakness, in my nature, in my blood.
Save me, oh save me, save me from myself, before I hurt somebody else again.
...Don't blame me, don't maim me — I can't help what I am. Oh, Lord knows I've tried to.

16. "Rabbit Heart [Raise it Up]" — Florence + The Machine
This is a gift; it comes with a price. Who is the lamb, and who is the knife? Midas is king, and he holds me so tight, and turns me to gold in the sunlight.
This is a gift.
