Jumper by Third Eye Blind

I wish you would step back
From that ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand
The angry boy a bit too insane
Icing over a secret pain
You know you don't belong
You're the first to fight
You're way too loud
You're the flash of light on a burial shroud
I know something's wrong
Well everyone I know has got a reason
To say put the past away
I wish you would step back
From that ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand
Well he's on the table and he's gone to code
And I do not think anyone knows
What they're doing here
And your friends have left you
You've been dismissed
I never thought it would come to this
And I, I want you to know
Everyone's got to face down the demons
Maybe today
You could put the past away
I wish you would step back from
That ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand
I would understand, I would understand
I would understand, I would understand
Can you put the past away

Someone needs to be singing this to Shinji during EoE, the end of 2.0, and 3.0.

Bjork's "Human Behavior" reminds of NGE's commentary on emotions, thoughts, and relationships.
If you ever get close to a human
And human behavior
Be ready, be ready to get confused
And be in my head after
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human behavior
But yet so, yet so irresistible
And me and my fear can
And there is no map uncertain

They're terribly, terribly, terribly moody
Of human behavior
Then all of a sudden, turn happy
And they and my here after
But oh, to get involved in the exchange
Of human emotions
Is ever so, ever so satisfying
And they and my here on
And there is no map and chair too

Human behavior, human behavior
Human, human behavior, human behavior
Human

And there is no map
And a compass wouldn't help at all
Yeah, uncertain

Human behavior, human behavior
Human behavior, human behavior
Human behavior, human behavior
Human behavior

There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human, to human, to human, to human

There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human, to human, to human, to human

Some songs I listen to would fit in the main characters:

Metallica - One (Shinji)
Disturbed - The Curse (Asuka)
Slayer - Behind The Crooked Cross (Rei)
Nirvana - Come As You Are (Misato)
Ozzy Osbourne - Mr. Crowley (Gendo)
Deep Purple - Soldier of Fortune (Kaji)
I've got nothing better to do, so I have registered myself here!

I definitely see this song fitting Misato. Yuna's cover has a feminine, melancholic mood to it that is really reminiscent of Misato.

For some reason, Limp Bizkit's "Counterfeit" reminds me more of Rei than it probably should everyone else in Eva. Particularly that line about being a clone doing nothing. :tongue:

Wow, the imagery from 5:00 onwards really fits the second half of End of Evangelion.
---------------------------------

Insomium - In the Groves of Death
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u-a-WVO6FM
THIS. Has almost has the same vibe with End of Evangelion, the parts with Shinji inside Instrumentality.

this fits in feeling with the parts that have Reilith and outside instrumentality:
Metallica - Call of Ktulu
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1RTgznup5c

the title of this song remind me of Gendo: Mastodon - I am Ahab

Misato Katsuragi + Motoko Kusanagi :WIN

Metallica - The Unforgiven , definitely works for Shinji.


He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man, they see no longer cares
Misato Katsuragi + Motoko Kusanagi :WIN

@HiImAnAlien: You read my mind, dude. "The Unforgiven" it's the song that is a perfect homage for Shinji. Actually my setlist for him represents all his situations:

Metallica - One:
Darkness, imprisoning me
All that I see, absolute horror
I cannot live, I cannot die
Trapped in my myself
Body my holding cell


It represents the time Shinji was trapped inside EVA 01

Metallica - The Unforgiven: We both already said it's an homage to him for the lyrics describe him perfectly.

Metallica - Harvester Of Sorrow:
My life suffocates, planting seeds of hate
My love turned to hate, trapped far beyond my fate
I give, you take, this life that I forsake
Been cheated of my youth, you turned this lie to truth


It represents Shinji after his mother's death and his father's departure.

Black Sabbath - Iron Man:
Has he lost his mind?
Can't he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all?
Or if he moves will he fall?


It represents Shinji in EoE while being crucified by the MP EVAs and it represents his first battle with an angel (specially when he tried to walk the first time with the EVA which resulted in a epic faceplant :hahaha: )

Black Sabbath - Changes:
I'm going through changes,
I'm going through changes


It represents Shinji after Rei's death, Asuka's coma, Misato's behavior change and Kaworu's appereance and death.

Have any of you guys watched the The Unforgiven AMV's for Evangelion?

@ChaddyManPrime: I watched a lot of AMVs with this song. But, to be honest... I would prefer a AMV with Hammer Smashed Face by Cannibal Corpse with the scenes of Shinji in his battles, including the scene he comes out of Leliel. :devil:

I'm really craving an AMV for Evangelion that is put together with Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus, it of course would follow the Shnji/Kaworu relationship through NGE and beyond.

Nico - Afraid (A melancholy song sung by the chanteuse Nico, reminds me mainly of Shinji)

Madonna - What it Feels like for a Girl (Reminds me of Asuka)

Kate Bush - Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God) (Reminds me of Ritsuko and her insecurities).

The Unforgiven as the others songs I listed for Shinji would be a nice tribute to him...

But a song that could describe his mental breakdown would be this one:

NAPALM DEATH, FOCKERZ!!! :devil:
