[fst][khr] Walking Talking Babydoll - a chrome fst  

Walking Talking Babydoll 

Baby Doll (Alex Chilton Cover) | The Duke Spirit
Dresses neat and treats me fine
oh baby its a crying crying crime
makes me feel so
fine, fine, fine, fine, fine

Wind her up and she cries real tears
rock this baby through her tender years
you just pull the string and she does her thing
you have a walking, talking baby doll

{To her parents she was a toy
Useless once broken and thrown away
She's not entirely sure she's anything different to him
Mukuro might say sweet words
But what if she's just a pretty doll to him too?}


We Are Pilots | Shiny Toy Guns
What about my problems?
The people try to solve them
I guess I'm under the weather
Since no one else belongs here with me

Hello mother, some news for you
I'm really not that crazy
Hello father, I'm curious
Why you think there's something wrong with me

{She always thought she deserved it
Her parents didn't understand
So she thought there was something wrong with her
But there wasn't
They just didn't care enough}

Again I Go Unnoticed | Dashboard Confessional
So quiet.
Another wasted night.
The television steals the conversation.
Another wasted breath
again it goes unnoticed.

Please tell me you're just feeling tired,
cause if it's more than that I feel that I might break.
Out of touch. Out of time.
Please send me anything but signals that are mixed,
cause I can't read your rolling eyes.
Out of touch. Are we out of time?

{She doesn't get people
Doesn't know how to interact with them
The motions she's going through feel clumsy
She doesn't want to say the wrong things
But she's hopeful} 


Dangerous and Sweet | Lenka
It's difficult to see
From the surface
But everything goes in
And it stings like a spider
Hits you deep inside and

I know that you are just like me
We're an ordinary breed
Taking everything for much more than it means
It's dangerous and it's sweet
Cut us and we bleed 

{She knows well the danger of words
That's why she's so hesitant with her own
She doesn't want to hurt anyone
Not with blows deadlier than fists
She doesn't want to hurt others like she's been hurt}


Commuter | The Tender Box
Humanity in midst of misery
Violent authority becomes routine
Burning down, burning down!

Don't ever sell your soul, don't ever let it go
The reign of night is cold commuter
The sweat of flesh and bone, alone and on your own
Someday you will find home commuter

{The world is such an ugly place
And she's seen some of the worst of it
But she won't let it drag her down
Because she's seen some of the best too
She comes home to it everyday

Swallow It | Brandon Flowers
We had a lot to learn
Table manners and grace, how to wait your turn when
Time came to clear your slate
You had too much, had too much on your plate

You could not swallow it
No baby you're not ready, slow down
And take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No baby you're not ready, slow down

{It feels like she's trying so hard to become him
To do everything he can do
But she can't
She can't handle it all on her own
And it feels like failure}


Apres Moi | Regina Spektor
I must go on standing
You can't break that which isn't yours
I must go on standing
I'm not my own, it's not my choice

Be afraid of the lame, they'll inherit your legs
Be afraid of the old, they'll inherit your souls
Be afraid of the cold, they'll inherit your blood
Après moi, le deluge, after me comes the flood

{If she isn't strong, she's at least resilient
She doesn't have the freedom not to be
She is no longer her own person
But that's okay, she doesn't mind
She's not going to hesitate anymore}


I'll Fight | Wilco
I'll go, I'll go, I'll go, I'll go for you
I'll fight, I'll fight, I'll fight, I'll fight for you
I'll kill, I'll kill, I'll kill, I'll kill for you
I will, I will, I will

I'll go,I'll go, I'll go, I'll go for you
I'll fight, I'll fight, I'll fight, I'll fight for you
I'll die, I'll die, I'll die, I'll die for you
I will, I will, I will

{She owes them so much
Both Mukuro-sama and Boss
If the least she can do is fight for them
Die for them
Then that's what she'll do}


We're All Mad | Natasha Bedingfield
Who's to say the darkened clouds must lead to rain
Who's to say the problems should just go away
Who's to point a finger at what's not understood

Because, we're all mad in our own way
Colours fade the grey away
Different people all the same
Each reveals the meaning
We're all mad in our own way
Fill the sky with different shades
Read the story on each page
Each reveals the meaning

{She loves this Family
They're crazy,
and cranky,
and sometimes creepy
But they feel like home}


Feedback is Love!

This mix got a little weird. I don't know what came over me.
Sorry this is so freakishly late. iTunes went wonky on me and I have to redo the album.

EDIT: I don't know how it happened by the explanations for three songs didn't show up at first. Sorry!

Songs that didn't show at first:

Mistaken for Strangers | The National
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
when you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery citibank lights
arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
oh you wouldn't want an angel watching over
surprise, surprise they wouldn't wannna watch
another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

{She's not always sure they know who she is
She's not always sure she knows who she wants to be
She's having to reinvent herself
Into someone strong, capable, and reliable
Sometimes it feels like she's just copying someone}


Your Protector | Fleet Foxes
She left a week to roam
Your protector's coming home
Keep your secrets with you, girl
Safe from the outside world

You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector's coming home (coming home)

{No one can know about him
It's one of the first things he tells her
It's a secret, he whispers, ours
It feels good to have a secret
It feels good to have anything of her own}


Breakable | Ingrid Michaelson

Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts?
Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts.
So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess.
And to stop the muscle that makes us confess.

We are so fragile,
And our cracking bones make noise,
And we are just,
Breakable, breakable, breakable, girls and boys.


{She knows it better than anyone
Just how fragile people are
It takes so little to do irrepareable harm
Takes so little to break someone into nothing
It's kind of beautiful}

Thank you! I kinda picked some out there songs, so I was little worried.

This is so cute <3 Well done :D

Really? I thought maybe it was a little... weird for Chrome. I was worried people wouldn't get it.

I don't think it's weird, actually, I think it fits really well. It displays a lot of emotions for Chrome, how she is unsure, how she slowly opens up out of her shell and from the pain and hurt the lack of love she recieved before she took on another life. &hearts

█ ♔ █: Natsustraightrhodes on November 11th, 2010 07:15 pm (UTC)
YES! That was exactly what I was going for. I think Chrome is a strong character but she deals with a lot of insecurity.

Same here! I can't wait until the day she fully regains her confidence. I have a lot of expectations for her, actually, ahaha. I'm glad I was right on the money though, hehe.

I only have one of their songs and I play it to death - so it's really awesome that you are sharing another one :D

Also: Regina, Natasha, and Lenka--!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

I am so excited for this to finish downloading - I definitely needs some new tunes for my iPod.
█ ♔ █: Brown Haired Girlstraightrhodes on November 11th, 2010 07:04 pm (UTC)
I have one album that was specially compiled for American release. Do you want it? It has a lot of good songs, like Masca and Lassoo.

I was intentionally looking for songs and bands that weren't too popular, spreading the music lurv.
   blas·phe·mous™mychemical_lust on November 11th, 2010 07:25 pm (UTC)

Um, sure? Only if you have time though. I'm sure I could find it online :)

Yeah, I haven't heard that Regina song, though lately I am obsessed with her album, Far. Otherwise, I haven't felt too inspired by music lately. Haha xD It's a bit depressing.
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on November 11th, 2010 07:46 pm (UTC)
It's hard to find there stuff online sometimes. A lot of the links are dead. I'll upload it later tonight.

I spent the last two weeks barely even litsening to music. College is getting depressingly stressful.

I am however happy I finished my Vongola FST. It was surprisingly easy for once. Now I just have to do explanations and make the actual album.
   blas·phe·mous™: d.gray ❝what a beautiful pair❞mychemical_lust on November 12th, 2010 02:42 pm (UTC)

Oh, well then please do send me the album! C: Haha, I have listened to that babydoll song a good number of times already!

I hear ya...at least Thanksgiving is close. And we got Vet's Day off. And then finals...

Oh yeah? I can't wait to see it then!! :D
█ ♔ █: Xanxusstraightrhodes on November 13th, 2010 03:04 am (UTC)

I'll probably upload Bad Kids next weeks some time.

Also: Lucky, you got Vet's day off :(
   blas·phe·mous™: naruto ❝looking back❞mychemical_lust on November 13th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)

Oooh! THANK YOU :D /shot

Oo - Like the song by the Black Lips? So fitting! I can't wait for it! C:

You didn't? Did you at least get a three day weekend?? D:
█ ♔ █: Skeletons smoking yo!straightrhodes on November 13th, 2010 04:22 am (UTC)
Yep. Bad Kids is the first song on the FST. I thought it was so perfect xD

Nope, no three day weekend. We get labor day off and thanksgiving we get three days off but that's pretty much it for the fall semester.

I like that this focuses a lot on Nagi - it's a little heartbreaking, and it's interesting to see a bit of exploration of Chrome before she became Chrome. Thank you for the FST!
█ ♔ █: Dark Chromestraightrhodes on November 11th, 2010 07:05 pm (UTC)
I like to kinda tell a story with my FSTs, showing how I think the Character changed over time, or how they will progress, you know what I mean?
ignore me I make no sense
demoerin: Communication!demoerin on November 11th, 2010 07:20 pm (UTC)
No, no, it makes perfect sense. It's something a FST can't always do well, because sometimes the right songs are difficult to find, but I think this one did a great job with that.
silentdictator on November 11th, 2010 09:15 pm (UTC)
The cover is so pretty. And the artists are all so amazing. :D
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on November 12th, 2010 04:33 am (UTC)
Thank you. I originally had made a different cover, but when I found that picture I just had to make another one.

Some of my favorite artists are included so I'm glad you like them!
jesh~♪: Loz: Link - Feeling Higherjesheslove on November 12th, 2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
HNNNNNGH THE COVER ♥ The songs look really good too!
█ ♔ █straightrhodes on November 12th, 2010 10:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
Fire child: Shades of Red_1teruame on November 12th, 2010 05:36 pm (UTC)
Alright! :D A Chrome FST! *___*

The cover is definitely beautiful. :3 I love how the title works with the theme for Chrome, because it is absolutely fitting. And the songs...dang it, you really know how to make Chrome Chrome here. :)

█ ♔ █: Rainstraightrhodes on November 12th, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah I'm really glad I went with this cover instead of the other one I had made. The picture seems to really suit the title.

I don't know why I always get so anxious about my songs when everyone else seems to really like them. I'm so neurotic sometimes.
