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.

18: ‘9 to 5’ by Dolly Parton

Natasha works for Service and Devotion, owned by Them.

This is her daily routine:

She tumbles out of bed and stumbles to the kitchen. Yawning and stretching she tries to come to life. She jumps in the shower and feels the blood start pumping. Out on the street, the traffic starts jumping, as she makes her way to her 9 to 5-job.

She’s ambitious and works hard, but still barely gets by.Her boss gets all the credit, while she and her coworkers and friends, one of which is her friend from her youth, do all the work, leading to them basically putting money in his pocket, making him richer every day. She fully believes, this is his game and doesn’t listen to anyone telling her otherwise.

She both wants and thinks, she deserves a fat promotion, but the boss won’t seem to let her get it (she swears, at it sometimes feels like he’s out to get her personally…).

They allow the workers to dream of a better life but never lets them actually achieve it. They got them exactly where they want them and just need them to dream that they can get further, so they will work harder. They use the boss and his behaviour as a means to shatter the worker’s dreams in front of their eyes.

But They can’t convince Natasha to give up her dream. One day her ship will come in, the tide is going to turn and it’s all going to roll her way.

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.
