My theme this month is Soundtrack Songs, and my posts will feature songs that are on my novel playlists, and the key lyrics that put them there.
Song #1: Born Villain by Marilyn Manson. It's a Second Nature song. I can't share a scene snippet with you because it's way too big a spoiler, but I will tell you that it pairs with a Chapter 36 scene...
There's a taste of blood/ And it's something deep inside
I'm a born villain/ Don't pretend to be a victim
Song #2: Bad Blood by Alison Mosshart and Eric Arjes. Another Second Nature song (Chapter 38). But too good not to share. Potentially Interesting Fun Fact—Both of these songs relate to the same character.
Don't listen to any word I say/ I'd say anything to make you feel okay/ I'm not who I thought I was/ Not today/ 'Cause I've got bad blood/ bad blood/ You don't want none of what I have
Good lord, give me peace/ From a life long of pain and greed/ But not yet/ I'm not done paying for my crimes
