Last Night I Sang To The Monster

By: Austin Dunbar

"Monster" by Skillet

"Monster" by Skillet

Lyrics:http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/skillet/monster.html

I chose this song because in this book the main character is facing a lot of problems. So the way I see it is that he is dealing with a lot of monsters in his head. In the song they say "I keep it caged inside". The character is trying to keep his problems locked up inside.
"Stressed Out" by Twenty One Pilots

"Stressed Out" by Twenty One Pilots

I chose this song because of all the things he is facing. Dealing with his addiction and things that happened prior to him being in rehab. I can only think about how stressed out he may be at this point in time.
"Gin and Juice" by Snoop Dogg

In the song Gin and Juice Snoop Dogg is drinking and doing drugs without a care in the world. This is exactly what Zach wants to do with his life. He just wants to drink and die.

" It's Been Awhile" by Staind

" It's Been Awhile" by Staind

Lyrics:http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/staind/itsbeenawhile.html

In this song the singer is reflecting on how it's been awhile since he has been sober and has been able to love himself. This is almost as Zach's story because he can't remember the past few years because of his addiction. He has gotten so bad that he wants no help from anyone and just wants to die.
