I've got a heart made of gold in me
Hah, can you believe this is where I've been?
And when adversity comes again
I'll deal with it then…"

4) Recent Past: A Tribe Called Quest - Pad and Pen: www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3q4rIOirj0
"…One love, one life, and one destiny
It seems that the devil keeps testin me
Got the illest part of the recipe
Yo tell your homegirl to stop stressin me (stop it)
Undressin me is the part you really like
Brothers hold the cracks now they holdin mics
The cusses you get, They feelin steady rights
Marauders, we did that shit at Mid-night, a-ah-aight-aight…"
5) Further Past: AFI - [Girl's Not Grey]: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Yzu-4kJg6g

"…Next thing you know I took a look
Gabe was trying to sell me a book
But i got no dough
He said check it out it’s going cheap
Check it out it’s going cheap
Ok I’ll give it a go
I read that book every page
And then I put it away
Said I don’t think so
It makes slaves of all of womenkind
And corpses of the men, and I
I just don’t know
And we care a little bit
We get scared a little bit
Oа those two cold dead eyes
That stare a little a bit
And we cry a little bit
And we get by a little bit
Let your tears
All come falling down…"'
10) Ultimate Outcome: Rasputina - Afternoon of the Fawn: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oVD-dZvZMI
"…If you accept my true intention
To find a house for all of us
My mind's eye can see a cottage of dimension
That defies its adorable size, and the garden is lush
Let's get put out to pasture
Let's go underground
Let's sit up in the thatched roof rafters
Where we can listen to the sound
Of anything that babbles
Like a brook, a stream, or a little child
I wanna live then in a hollow glen
Where the buttercup roams wild…"
(Hm. Houses of Blue)
Clarification: SITD - [The Final Curtain]:
Leben wir in schönen Erinnerungen
Und glauben wir an eine goldene Zukunft
Um das hier und jetzt
Nicht wahrnehmen zu müssen?
Mit Händen voller Hoffnung
Stehen wir am Abgrund zur Ewigkeit..
[Are we living in beautiful memories
And we believe in a golden future
To the here and now
Not having to perceive?
With hands full of hope
Are we on the brink of eternity…]
(Well that clarification was certainly ambiguous…)
