FCSS Week 1: Playlist for ""City of Ashes" by Cassandra Clare



1. Neither of Us Can See by Incubus- I feel like this some describes Clary and Simon perfectly. They were blind in the first novel and now they are trying to figure out what to do with this new sight. They are trying to see into an uncertain future and fight against something that is so much bigger than themselves.

    Here are the lyrics:

    I am one big walking chemical reaction
    A buzzing hive of cell synapsis and nacent self perception

    Isn't it disdainful and curious
    That both of us think we know everything

    We both have brains,
    We both have eyes
    (Neither of us can see)
    We both have pains,
    We both have lies
    (Neither of us can see)
    One in the same, two of a kind
    And neither of us can see

    I am just a blinking, neon roadside attraction
    I sow future wrinkles and Im told Im untapped potential

    Isn't it disdainful and curious
    That both of us think we know everything

    We both have brains,
    We both have eyes
    (Neither of us can see)
    We both have pains,
    We both have lies
    (Neither of us can see)
    One in the same, two of a kind
    And neither of us can see

    I am one big, fleeting errant contradiction
    It's so good to meet you
    We are one in the same

    Isn't it disdainful and curious
    That both of us think we know everything

    We both have brains,
    We both have eyes
    (Neither of us can see)
    We both have pains,
    We both have lies
    (Neither of us can see)
    One in the same, two of a kind
    And neither of us can see

    2. Moving On by The Letter Black- From Clary to Valentine, enough said. He ruined her life without even knowing her and this could be an anthem from everyone in the Circle to Valentine as well.


    Here's a pick at the lyrics:

    I don't care about you
    I don't care about you
    Anymore

    You hurt me, lied to me
    You earned my trust but then you
    Betrayed me, my family
    You wanted all control
    So you cut down everyone
    Who ever stepped in your way
    I'm moving on

    I don't care about you
    I don't care about you
    No I don't care about you anymore
    I forgive you now I'm moving on
    Moving on
    Moving on

    Consumed by selfishness
    You wanted nothing less then
    To see me leave because
    I ruined all your plans
    So you spread lies
    Compromise me and the family's very lives
    I'm done with you

    I don't care about you
    I don't care about you
    No I don't care about you anymore
    I forgive you now I'm moving on

    You're left in the past
    But I'm not looking back
    Anymore

    I don't care about you
    I don't care about you anymore
    I forgive you now I'm moving on
    I don't care, I don't care about you. Moving on
    I don't care, I don't care about you anymore
    I forgive you now I'm moving on
    I forgive you now I'm moving on!
    I don't care, I don't care about you
    I don't care, I don't care about

    3. The World Outside by Eyes Set To Kill- I feel like this is Clary's theme song for the last novel. She's lost and doesn't know who to believe entering into this new world trying to make her way. This next novel is the aftermath of that and I think this song describes that feeling perfect!


    Check out the lyrics:

    Isn't this nice?
    My own worst enemy
    taking control of things...
    Now is the time
    This is the melody
    This is the symphony

    Now hear my cry
    There's no words beneath
    There's no in between
    There's no alibi to make this right
    No behind the scenes
    Everything you see
    what you get don't fight


    The world outside
    is changing me
    is changing me
    to who I'm afraid of
    I can't confide in anything
    The crowd will not rest tonight

    If you look twice
    the second time you might fail to recognize
    Look through my eyes
    maybe a part of the
    old me is left inside

    Now hear my cry
    There's no words beneath
    There's no in between
    There's no alibi to make this right
    No behind the scenes
    Everything you see
    what you get don't fight


    The world outside
    is changing me
    is changing me
    to who I'm afraid of
    I can't confide in anything
    The crowd will not rest tonight

    The crowd will not rest tonight

    Finally I can hold the key
    The clock is still ticking...
    clock is still ticking
    I can see
    What does all this mean?
    When the lock is still missing
    Lock is still missing?

    Finally I can hold the key
    The clock is still ticking...
    clock is still ticking
    I can see
    What does all this mean?
    When the lock is still missing?

    The world outside
    is changing me
    is changing me
    to who I'm afraid of
    I can't confide in anything
    The crowd will not rest tonight

    *Repeat chorus*

    4. Panic Switch by Silversun Pickups- I think this describes Jace at the beginning of the novel completely. He desperate for a release and willing to get it anyway he can.


    The lyrics are in the video.

    5. Impossible by Anberlin- For me this is a Simon song but it could also refer to Jace's view point of Clary since the horrible reveal. This is such a sweet song and I feel it fits both characters really well.


    The lyrics:

    You make my teeth clinch and my hands shake.
    Do you ever see what you do to me?
    You're wearing me out, just wearing me out,
    But I'm wearing you down.

    You're impossible, but lovely.
    So impossible to win or please.
    I'm wearing you out, just wearing you out,
    But I'm wearing you down.

    Take what you want from me, it means nothing now.
    Take everything from me, it means nothing now.
    Not so easy to forgive, harder to forget.
    Take what you want...

    I made your lips slip and your moans quake.
    Try to think through, what I can do to you.
    It's wearing me thin, can I begin,
    To wear you out? 

    Take what you want from me, it means nothing now.
    Take everything from me, it means nothing now.
    Not so easy to forgive, harder to forget.
    Take what you want...

    I'm impossible to figure out.
    So impossible, you had your doubts.

    Take what you want from me, it means nothing now.
    Take everything you wanted, it means nothing now.
    Not to easy to forgive, harder to forget.
    Take what you want from me, it means nothing now.
    Take everything you wanted, it means nothing now.
    Not so easy to forgive, harder to forget.
    Take what you want from me...

    So there you have it! These are my picks. What do you think? Do you know any other songs that would be good?

    Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

    This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
