1. The Rhythm and the Blues - Sam Cooke
Song: I Lost Everything

Lyrics:
"The moon and the stars they don't seem the same
Love has lost its glory, to me it's just a game.
No, I lost everything, my dreams are all through
My life is only make believe without you"

2. American IV: The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash
Song: Hurt

Lyrics:
"I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real.
The needle tears a hole,
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
but I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend.
Everyone I know,
goes away in the end.
And you could have it all,
my empire of dirt."

3. Without You I'm Nothing - Placebo
Song: Without You I'm Nothing

Lyrics:
"Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide.
I'll take it by your side.
Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide.
I'll take it by your side.
Instant correlation sucks and breeds a pack of lies.
I'll take it by your side.
Oversaturation curls the skin and tans the hide.
I'll take it by your side.

I'm unclean, a libertine
And every time you vent your spleen,
I seem to lose the power of speech,
Your slipping slowly from my reach.
You grow me like an evergreen,
You never see the lonely me at all."

Lyrics:
"Kaupas pitkin seinii kassal väkinäine hymy
Nyt taikuri oli itsekin yllättyny
Päässäni sota sormessani pateja
Herään omast sängyst kädes rutistettui pameja
En syöny yhtää en luota nappeihin
Aprillipäivänäkää usko valkotakkeihi
Tunteiden murha valtion luvalla
Kuhan yritys hyötyy nii saat olla kujalla
En usko vitsejäsi oon kai liian tyhmä elää
Mut liian viisas tappaakseni itseäni"

A man who drinks just to drown the pain
And I can't stop from dreaming there's something else"

For I never knew the art of making love,
Though my heart aches with love for you.
Afraid and shy, I-I've let my chance go by,
A chance that you might love me too."

Some kind of peace of mind"
