"The show must go... all over the place... or something." -Finn Hudson

Is this called living or something else?     (Daughter)
Hold on hold on tight, make it through another night.  (Mat Kearney)
All we do is live inside a cage.  (Oh Wonder)
Ragged lines of ragged gray
Skeletons they shuffle away.  (Rush)
And the weight of the world’s getting harder to hold up.      (Bring Me The Horizon)
Take me, take me, home.    (Home by Daughter)
Cold, torn, and pulled apart.   (Wildfire by Seafret)

And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of the people who have
Come and gone.   (Kodaline)
Now we’re left here in the pain.    (Afire Love by Ed Sheeran)
So homesick I can’t feel.      (Just A Game by Birdy)
And the tears come streaming down your face.               
My father told me, son,     (Coldplay)
We’re all just pieces in their games.     (Just A Game by Birdy)
In the end, everyone ends up alone.     (The Fray)
Cold, torn, and pulled apart.     (Wildfire by Seafret)

I thought oh God, my chance has come at last.     (The Smiths)
You know I tried, to fight my way out.      (Lewis Watson)
At this point your life flashes before your eyes.    (Little Lady by Ed Sheeran)
By tomorrow I’ll be left in the darkness.    (Tomorrow by Daughter)
And now I just sit in silence.       (twenty one pilots)
Throw me in the dirt pit.       (Landfill by Daughter)
But in the end it doesn’t even matter.       (Linkin Park)
I’m still here,     (Johnny Rzeznik)
Cold, torn, and pulled apart.       (Wildfire by Seafret)

The Holocaust inspired me to write this piece. I love music so I decided to use song lyrics to write about the event.
