Musical Lexicon – “The War was in Color” – My Answers

4 Jun

Topic – Battlefield


Sunday Bloody Sunday – U2

“And the battle‘s just begun. There’s many lost but tell me who has won?”


All These Things That I’ve Done – The Killers

“I’ve got soul, but I’m not a soldier.”


Drunken Lullabies – Flogging Molly

“And the bullet with this sniper lie in their bloody gutless cell”


Zombie – The Cranberries

“With their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns.”

Fighter [Jet]

What About Everything – Carbon Leaf

“Old muffler rumbles like an old fighter plane


Sons & Daughters – The Decemberists

“Here all the bombs fade away…”


Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

“I’m a rocket ship on my way to Mars”


Love and War (11/11/46) – Rilo Kiley

“As we shift each other’s bodies to accept the bullet.”


The Bad Touch – The Bloodhound Gang

“So if I capsize in your thighs, high tide, B-5, you sunk my battleship.”


One – Metallica

Landmine has taken my sight…”


Train Underwater – Bright Eyes

“While the world waits for an explosion, that instance of life that wipes the slate clean”


Matt, you actually did not steal my answer for landmine, though Abby did steal my battleship. This topic originally included the five branches of the military, but I decided to take them off since each one could be filled with their respective anthems. The next topic will be up tomorrow. To give you a hint to think of stuff early, all I can say is dream big!
