[fst][khr] The Prodigal Son - a tsuna fst  



The Resolution - Jack's Mannequin
There's a lot that I don't know
There's a lot that I'm still learning
But I think I'm letting go
Find my body
It's still burning

And you hold me down
And you got me living in the past
Come on and pick me up
Somebody clear the wreckage from the blast

{He doesn't know what he's doing
 Not really, not at all
 He's constantly being told he's not ready
 While simultaneously being thrown to the wolves
 So he's going to do what he can, all he can}

Nobody Knows Me At All - The Weepies
When I was a child everybody smiled
Nobody knows me at all
Very late at night and in the morning light
Nobody knows me at all

Now I got lots of friends, yes
But then again, nobody knows me at all
Kids and a wife, it's a beautiful life
Nobody knows me at all

{This isn't about the Vongola
 It never has been, never will be
 He isn't Vongola Decimo
 He's just No-Good Tsuna
 Isn't he?}


Benign - Oleander
Would it be so hard for you
To state just for the record
That you've done your best to do nothing at all
And that you stood around
And watched from every corner
As everyone around you hit the ground
Would it tear you up inside
To take on the reflection
Of everyone around you that you know
Instead of getting by
With lying and deception
Of everyone around you letting go

{He'll be the first to admit it
 There was a reason he was called Dame-Tsuna
 It used to be enough, to be able to say
 'I'm not capable, so I shouldn't even try'
 It's no longer enough}

Leader - Phantom Planet
There are so many signs the end is nigh
Our Leader told us so besides
We follow him blind, to and fro
Wherever he decides to go

He speaks, we listen
We'll see his vision

He explained so easily
We are all the missing pieces
Maybe you'll fit right in too
Ask yourself, it might be true

{They'll follow him to death, to hell
 He never asked for it, or wanted it
 But he has to admit he's a little thankful
 When he turns around they're always there
 Now, if only the Mafia didn't feel so much like a cult}

Tidal Wave - Owl City
I forget the last time I felt brave
I just recall insecurity
'Cause it came down like a tidal wave
And sorrow swept over me

Then I was given grace and love
I was blind but now I can see
'Cause I found a new hope from above
And courage swept over me

{Sometimes it feels like he's ruled by fear
 Fear of the Mafia, fear for himself
 Most of all, fear for his friends
 That they'll be hurt, and he can't do anything
 He wants so much to be brave}

That's Okay - The Hush Sound
You want to go back
To where you felt safe
To hear your brother's laughter
See your mother's face
Your childhood home
Is just powder-white bones
And you'll never find your way back

And when you're gone
Will they say your name?
And when you're gone
Will they love you the same?
If not, that's okay
If not, that's okay

{This isn't a future he wants
 He wants to go home
 Go back so he can fix it
 He has to fix it
 He can't accept a future where he's gone}

Live Like You're Dying - Lenka
Take every moment, you know that you own them
It's all up to you to do whatever you choose
Live like you're dying and never stop trying
It's all you can do
Use what's been given to you

All of the moments you didn't notice
Gone in the blink of an eye
And all of the feelings you can't help feeling
No matter how you try...

{If the disaster that was the future
 Taught him but one thing
 It's that it doesn't take much
 To lose all you have
 So he'll never take it for granted again}

The Sound of Settling - Death Cab For Cutie
Our youth is fleeting
Old age is just around the bend
And I can't wait to go gray
And I'll sit in wonder
Of every love that could've been
If I'd only thought of something
Charming to say

This is the sound of settling

{He can defeat men twice his age and height
 He can even tell Nono he won't take over Vongola
 (for all the good that did him)
 Sometimes he can even try to stand up to Reborn
 He just can't tell her how he feels}

It's Amazing - Jem
Don't be embarrassed, don't be afraid
Don't let your dreams slip away
Determination using your gift
Everybody has a gift
Never give up, never let it die
Trust your instincts and most importantly
You've got nothing to lose
So just go for it

It's amazing, it's amazing
All that you can do
It's amazing, makes my heart sing
Now it's up to you

{He can't help but be a little shocked
 Every time he get's a little stronger
 A little better
 He never knew he could be this capable
 And he'll always be thankful to Reborn for giving him this}

Better Than It Was - Fastball
Once I had it all planned out
My dirty fingers moved about
To make a mess of everything around me
I don't claim to know my way
I still run in circles everyday
Running around half blind
Life can be unkind
But it's better than it was
It's better than it was
I complain very little because
It's better than it was

{He wouldn't exactly say he's happy
 Between Reborn, and the kids, and various explosions
 Between fighting and getting hurt and hurting others
 No, He wouldn't say he's happy
 But life's better than it was}

Feedback is Love
Thanks to Alex who taught me how to make Albums with iTunes

Your song choices are superb! And I think they fit Tsuna very much! :D

Awesome job bbcakes! ♥

Thank you! That's high praise coming from the queen of the FST herself.

I spent freaking forever picking the songs, I kept adding and deleting them until finally I just said 'Screw it' and went with what I had.
   blas·phe·mous™: ❝ even though it hurts ❞mychemical_lust on August 9th, 2010 11:27 pm (UTC)

Pffft, pah-lease. giiirrrrrrl!


yeah, sometimes it's hard to just 'get' the emotion you are wanting to hear when you make it. But these songs are good. I have most of them already, so I know they are awesome XD

♥ ♥

I just got really excited when the The Revolution on there....! ♥ So I had to see what else you had cooking. And they are all very good song choices!! ♥
█ ♔ █: Chustraightrhodes on August 9th, 2010 11:32 pm (UTC)
I think you mean The Resolution, but I honestly had to scroll up and check. I have fried my brain on this fst. *dies*

Yeah I knew what kind of songs I wanted on there, but I couldn't find them. I probably downloaded about ten albums looking for songs for this.

I'm also kinda screwed on my Mukuro fst because I have a perfect song in mind but I'm having trouble getting my hands on it. It's so frustrating!
   blas·phe·mous™mychemical_lust on August 9th, 2010 11:36 pm (UTC)

Yeeessss I did. Dude, story of my life. I type everything wrong.

I also saw you have The Sound of Settling, which I think is awesome because I have it on my 10YL27 playlist! OMG! xD We must be on the same brainwave! I think it's kind of cool though because it means that people think that song fits him as well! :D Like, I'm not lying or anything -- when I re-read this it sounds kind of sarcastic, but it's totally not!!! I promise! xD ♥ ♥ ♥

What song are you looking for?? Mukuro is ridiculous. I have his 10yl mix done and have yet to post it. explanations are hard.

Maybe I can help with song finding??
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 9th, 2010 11:46 pm (UTC)
I have an actual learning disability, I misspell shit all the time, more so for some reason when I do longhand rather than typing.

I thought that song suited him really well, it's one of the few I was like 'That is going on the fst for sure'. (Is it weird that I pronouce fst like fist in my head?)

Also, I regularly sound sarcastic when I'm being perfectly sincere it's one of my many talents

Rusty Cage by Johnny Cash. Mukuro has actually been easier for me than Tsuna was, but I think Tsuna was just being a little bitch.

That would be awesome, I'm almost to the point of giving up, which would suck since the songs so perfect.

   blas·phe·mous™: ❝ get too close to the flame❞mychemical_lust on August 9th, 2010 11:52 pm (UTC)

DUDE! I love Johnny Cash! And I have that song actually - it's going to be on my 10YL59 fst! The mix is pretty raw, so I don't know if it will still be on there by the time I am done. srsly though, I like your music choices!

I will find it for you!


When I want to get a song, but only one instead of teh whole album, I google it and then the word 'mediafire' after it. I normally can find it pretty quickly xD

Ex: Rusty Cage Johnny Cash mediafire

It's not always from mediafire, but the links are normally legit. If that one doesn't work, I'll totally upload it for you! ♥

And no, it's not. That's how I pronounce in my head. I used to also pronounce the CTRL button as 'cuh-tril' I can't really spell it, but that's how it sounded in my head D:
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 10th, 2010 12:05 am (UTC)
Oooooo, that's good advice, I didn't think of that. Thanks so much!

I pronounce a lot of words stupidly in my head, makes me thankful people can't hear me think.

Our taste in music is so similar it's scary xD Most of my friends in RL have really different taste from me, like none of them like the classics or any country, whereas I'll occasionally indulge. But I'm kinda an omnivore when it comes to music.

Also, the link is not working for me ;_;
   blas·phe·mous™mychemical_lust on August 10th, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)

lammmeee!I just uploaded it myself then: click!

ommmgg! ♥
Me too! I listen to almost everything! Though, a lot of my friends have a somewhat similar taste in music. What do your friends listen to then?
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 10th, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
Eeeeee! Thank you so much!

One is really into female vocalist feminist power types, which isn't bad, but I can't litsen to it all the time like she does, the other likes bands like greenday and screaming!bands, which I find get repeatitive after awhile. I guess most of the problem is just that they litsen to the same thing over and over again. I need variety!
   blas·phe·mous™: ❝ i don't know if i want this❞mychemical_lust on August 10th, 2010 02:25 am (UTC)

uggghhh! Both are cool, but I don't think I could listen to that all the time. I would die D:

And I am so glad the link works! :D ♥

Can't wait to see your Mukuro one whenever you upload it! Hopefully I will catch it! xD

I almost never see FSTs where I think every songs fits, so this is really well chosen. So is the cover, although maybe that's just because I could stare and stare at it, haha.
█ ♔ █: Natsustraightrhodes on August 9th, 2010 11:16 pm (UTC)
Ugh, the cover. My photoshop software mysteriously deleted itself so I had to do the cover using MS Paint. I hate MS Paint.

And it's good to know all the hair-pulling hours I spent picking the songs weren't in vain. Thank you.

Wow, this one was very well done!
█ ♔ █: Yuuko lovestraightrhodes on August 9th, 2010 11:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you! ^.^
crazy bitchairwaveeight on August 9th, 2010 06:59 pm (UTC)
will download when I'm a little less sleep deprived! And you included Fastball! Awesommmme.
█ ♔ █: Lambostraightrhodes on August 9th, 2010 11:18 pm (UTC)
I can understand that. I'm about ready to keel over myself. Please tell me what you think once you give it a litsen.

Also: I love Fastball.

Oh, so much good choices. I'm definitely downloading it. Thanks so much.
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 10th, 2010 12:10 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad all my anxiety about picking bad songs is unfounded.
kenco_coffee: Hayato Gokudera Heartkenco_coffee on August 10th, 2010 09:20 am (UTC)
EEE! I totally love all the songs you've selected from this. Apart from Phantom Planet (Who I've never heard of before), I love these artists so much. And I'm sure I'll be able to add Phantom Planet to this list after listening to this <3

Thank you so much!
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 10th, 2010 12:15 pm (UTC)
Phantom Planet is pretty awesome, I'm actually using a song by them on my upcoming Mukuro fst too.

If you like the band tell me and I'll upload the cd I have for you. (It's one of my favorite bands)
kenco_coffee: Hayato Gokudera Heartkenco_coffee on August 10th, 2010 03:15 pm (UTC)
Really? I gave the song a listen and I absolutely loved it <3
if it's not too much bother, I'd love it if you could upload tge cd for me. <33 although I may not be able to download it til Thursday as my days are now full. Thank you so much~!
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 10th, 2010 11:27 pm (UTC)
No problem! I'm always willing to share my music loves.

kenco_coffee: Hayato Gokudera Heartkenco_coffee on August 12th, 2010 08:27 am (UTC)
EEE. Again, thank you <3
You have no idea how much happier this has made me feel xD;
(Cause I have almost no life like that).
█ ♔ █: Nerdgasm!straightrhodes on August 12th, 2010 07:12 pm (UTC)
That's okay. I love getting new music, it makes me squee in joy not literally cause that might freak people out.
kanra34 on August 11th, 2010 10:27 am (UTC)

█ ♔ █: Natsustraightrhodes on August 11th, 2010 07:41 pm (UTC)
You are awesome! Thank you!
Isadora: muukumemoiress on August 11th, 2010 03:34 pm (UTC)
TO-DIE-FOR song choices. ;-; Loved every bit you put on this one, really great job. ♥ Totally fitting.

█ ♔ █: Mokona lovestraightrhodes on August 11th, 2010 07:39 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad the month I spent working on this was not wasted *dies*
Ran: REDakai_ran on August 15th, 2010 09:35 pm (UTC)
Dowloading, i love cover, Gosh! >3< i love Tsuna ♥
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on August 21st, 2010 09:54 pm (UTC)
That cover, sfgdjhw;or *dies* I did that using microsoft paint because my PSP7 mysteriously deleted itself. Luckily I managed to DL PSP9 so I won't have to use the evil that is MS Paint ever again.

Thank you for DL-ing!
silentdictator on November 12th, 2010 05:45 am (UTC)
More coolio songs. :D Those last lines of your own story weaving were so sad and sweet.
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on November 12th, 2010 10:26 pm (UTC)
Ah! I didn't mean for it to come out sad! But I'm glad you like it. Thanks for downloading so many of my FSTs!
