25: ‘You Lost Me’ by Christina Aguilera

Dixie’s and Distortion’s relationship wasn’t always strained. At first, Distortion kept his involvement with Them hidden. She called him Babe. Their love magical.

But then Dixie witnessed him at one of his jobs: killing a witness. He was supposed to take the fall and keep attention away from Them. This new knowledge infected and changed their relationship.

Distortion tried to fix it by introducing her to more of the operation, amongst which the female leader.

It didn’t work. His neglect of her, that she could previous look past due to him being unable to keep his hands to himself around her, was now horrible because she knew what he was doing. But she still loved him and stayed with him, hoping she might be able to get him away from it. It was painful and involved a lot of tears from both and their love suffered. And eventually, it became clear to her, that Distortion was driven by a lust for violence, a lust she couldn’t get out of him.

She was done. All was lost. Recalling the smoking gun, she could no longer look forgive him for his crimes, no longer hope, he would change. He chose lust for violence over his love for Dixie. The love was gone and he lost her. The Leader won, as tragical as it was.

And Dixie’s life lost all fun. She began fighting against Them – and lost.

In their last letter exchange as a couple, Distortion apologised to Dixie and reminded her of how sweet their relationship had been. She knew, he would regret it all. But what good was that now, when they were both shells of their former selves? It was too late. How could Dixie ever trust him again?

20: ‘Not Ready To Make Nice’ by Dixie Chicks

Pink’s mother, Dixie, is a singer.

Distortion’s hopping in and out of prison took a toll on her. She chose to love a criminal and now she was paying and would be paying for it forever. They fought a lot over this via letter. He wanted her to get over her hang-ups about his imprisonment because it was never going to change. So she left.

Time was supposed to heal Dixie, but it failed. Pink grew up not actually knowing her father. But Pink loved him so much, that Dixie had to explain her, that she shouldn’t – in fact she ought to hate him. That didn’t exactly make the healing easier.

After Pink dies, Distortion reaches out to Dixie, asking her to forgive and forget.

Forgiveness sounds good. That she could do. Forgetting, however… That she can’t do. She’s still mad as hell and not ready to make it right between them.

And she’ll keep fighting Them and she won’t shut up about what she knows. She has already paid for her silence with her daughter. That too is a price, she’ll keep paying, but now she won’t back down – even at the threat of her own life and even if he thinks, she should.

19: ‘Hurricane’ by Theory Of A Deadman

Brad knew, They were coming. Or rather, he should have known. And he shouldn’t have dragged Pink into it. Now everything is gone and he’s back in the midst of it.

He escaped it before, had gotten away and was safe and happy with Pink. He really thought he was safe and away from it all. He doesn’t understand how They found him.

And this is why he keeps The Young Pink around. If he thought letting her go would do any good, he would. But it won’t. So he’d rather keep her and the memories alive.

14: ‘The Ballad of Serenity’ by Sonny Rhodes

They murdered Pink.

They burned Brad and Pink’s house and lands to the ground.

The heat boiled Brad and Pink’s little lake.

And they took Brad and locked him up in a room so small, he can’t stand up and so dark, he can barely see.

He wasn’t alone. He sits with a few other people. He kept telling himself, this wasn’t real, that he was still at home with Pink. The Young Pink helped him. In his mind, he found serenity in having her by his side and couldn’t bring himself to believe, that it isn’t, despite what the other prisoners said. The prison guards believed, their efforts were fruitless and that he wasn’t coming back to the real world.

And so far they were right. He refused to let go of his little bit of sky in the closed-up-reality – and he felt free. And when he finally realised, that it wasn’t a dream,.he took that feeling with him.

9: ‘Prison Bound’ by Social Distortion

Pink’s father, Distortion, is going back to prison. He has been in and out of it many times and fully expects to go back there, once he gets out again. He gives word to Pink to inform her of his sentence and tell her, he’ll be out again one day, purposely not specifying when.

The system, personified in a prison guard named Johnny, keeps telling him, that Distortion’s time here will reform him, but Distortion knows better. Whichever lesson they’re trying to teach him will probably never catch on.

The prison lies on the outskirts of town and the railroad goes straight by. Distortion shares a cell with three other men. It’s cold and clammy, but he understands he has to do his time.
