Cassandra Clare shares ‘Lord of Shadows’ playlist
Happy Tuesday! Whenever there is a new Cassandra Clare book coming out, fans can tick off a mental checklist:
We are now fourteen days away from the release of the second The Dark Artifices book so Cassie took to her tumblr to share her Lord of Shadows playlist (links to the music videos were added by us):
Lord of Shadows
Your six blade knife can do anything for you
Anything you want it to
One blade for breaking my heart
One blade for tearing me apart
Your six blade knife can do anything for you
Fuck It And Whatever, The Echo-Friendly
We are sleeping in a rainstorm
With no lightning rod
So please remember my love
As we lie in the arms of an angry vengeful God
And I know we can’t stay together
But I’ll keep you safe forever
And I know that sounds heavy
But fuck it and whatever
Well I met an old man dying on a train.
No more destination, no more pain.
Well he said one thing, before I graduate
“Never let your fear decide your fate.”
I say kill your heroes and fly, fly, baby don’t cry.
No need to worry ‘cause, everybody will die.
Every day we just go, go, baby don’t go.
Don’t you worry we love you more than you know.
Met back up with the boy I love
Cried on the streets of San Francisco
I don’t have an agenda
All I do is pretend to be ok so my friends
Can’t see my heart in the blender
Lately, I’ve been killing all my time
Reading through your messages my favorite way to die
Take my head and kick it in
Break some bread for all my sins
Say a word, do it soon
It’s too quiet in this room
Some nights feel like every night
This one feels brand new
Only got bad things on my mind
When I’m with you
Tell me that you need me on the floor
Passed out in your dirty clothes
Ask me what the hell I’m looking for
Like you don’t know
Shatter in the Night — Vesperteen
Laying in the yard and we worship the stars
And I blow your mind while you kiss my scars.
We rise and we fall. We’re floating
And all our time’s revolving around what we see as true
But it’s breaking me and it’s breaking you
Every Other Weekend — Annie Rapid (always makes me think of Livvy & Ty) *links to Spotify*
But we are one
For you are here
Inside a place so far away
My brother always near
It’s every other weekend
And it’s in the messages they send
Broken promises will mend
For all these things we can’t count on
Will one day make us grow up strong
we went down to the edge of the water
you were afraid to go in
you said there might be sharks out there in the ocean
and i said i’m only going for a swim
i was swimming around in a circle
i wasn’t always in view
you said we might get into red flag danger
and i am alone when i’m not with you
but i am no mermaid
and i am no fisherman’s slave
i am no mermaid
i keep my head above the waves
You’re not my savior, just someone I used to see
I am broken
Something’s wrong inside of me
I feel violent
Like I’m dying
I feel broken
Maybe I’m just breaking free
Is it ever gonna not be so hard to see you around?
Am I really really really really gonna have to leave town?
I mean I called upon a bunch of angels calling angels ain’t you supposed to come and take away these blues?
All five kinds of rains
All nine kinds of thunder and
Eighteen white horses who will not ever come to me!
Don’t plant your feet, love, in that garden of blame.
Don’t break me no more, love.
I’m already tame.
I’ve got these letters tattooed on my arm
That remind me each second of where I come from
And the long hard road to get me back home
I’m not trying to part the ocean waves
I’m not trying to overthrow the throne
I’m just trying to find a way to make it back home
In Our Bedroom After the War — Stars
Wake up! Say good morning to that sleepy person lying next to you
If there’s no one there, then there’s no one there, but at least the war is over
It’s us – yes, we’re back again, here to see you through, ’til the days end
And if the night comes, and the night will come, well at least the war is over
Meet me in the Woods — Lord Huron
How long, baby, have I been away?
Oh, it feels like ages though you say it’s only days
There ain’t language for the things I’ve seen, yeah
And the truth is stranger than my own worst dreams
When I sleep
I see her ghost
Siren’s hand pulling me six feet below
Built it for two
Inherited her color scheme
Now it’s my tomb
What’s your favourite song and how are you preparing yourself in these final two weeks? Sound off in the comments!
There’s a lot of pain in those lyrics. I’m bracing for a painful read here!
“Kill Your Heroes”? Please don’t take the song title literally Cassie. Pretty please.
