Kin songs

I knew this song for quite a while and I just now realize how much it means to how I feel with being kin. Kind of a vent song that any kin could relate to, so I thought I would share.

Great thread! Well, there are actually a couple of songs, but this is maybe the strongest one... German only I'm afraid, so I've translated it for you. Just to explain: this song celebrates the power of imagination. Now, I don't at all think that our kin identities are "made up" in any way. What we are is as real as anything can be. But for me, imagination is one of the major forces which creates this reality. The world we live in is created by all of us using that force. I can see this, I can feel this within me every single day. I hope that makes sense somehow... anyhow, this song reminds me of that so much. 


Here's the lyrics:

The trist sky makes me sick
A heavy gray cloth which almost suffocates the senses
Habituality is visiting me
Didn't charge up for so long, batteries are empty
Entangled in a labyrinth. Oh, I don't see the way any more
I want to leave, I want to get out of here, I want wish-me-something
And a small boy takes me by the hand
He waves at me and grins: Come on, let's get out of here, come, I'll show you something you've forgotten due to all the rationality.

[REFRAIN]
Join me.
Join me into adventure land. For your own journey.
Join me into adventure land. Admission costs rationality.
Join me into adventure land. And do it all your way.
Your imagination gives you a land: the adventure land.

A new shape, playful and wild. Clouds are drawing pictures
The wind is whistling this song where every wish comes through
I invent, I transform with magic force
An army points at me and screams: "You're crazy!"
I stretch out my finger, I enchant, I ban, I have the power
As long as that small boy grins in the mirror

[REFRAIN]

Peter Pan and Captain Hook and 17 fire dragons: You can see it all if you want
Ooh, Thunder birds, ancient screams, angels laughing loud: You can hear it all if you want
You can flip, whiz, fly, you can have the biggest horse
You can dance, stagger, dream and miss school
All of this is possible within you, in your own land
Just dare to be crazy, it's all in your hand

Join me.... [Do you join? Are you part of it?]
Join me onto your own journey.
Join me and do it your way.

[REFRAIN]

The animal by Disturbed.

I mean the lyrics I always interpreted as having a very powerful M-shift. I guess that's why it's one of my favorites. Lyrics are in the video:

The one I'm sharing is a kin song only because it strikes me as coyote song, drawing from my subjective associations & subjective coyote/human blended outlook.

Lunar Lullaby — Jacob Narverud

I actually listen to it when I’m feeling dysphoric. I’m an angelkin and the song tells me I belong in heaven.

Title: "First Quarter Moon" | It's literally my boss theme from the video game, Angels of Death. I love the intensity of it! It makes me feel godly~ The music from this series in general is absolutely amazing (imo) 😃 (I couldn't really hide that spoiler, the music itself gives it away XD)

I really don't have to explain this one. The music and visuals describe it all.

LYRICS (In English)

Artist: Ayumi Hamasaki (浜崎あゆみ)
Song: m

Maria, there is someone I should love
every person who has been hurt...
 
As I look around
everyone hurries past.
 
This year, too
when I noticed,
the sense of winter
came this close.
 
Two people and their eyes
meet somewhere in this city today;
things start to happen passionately.
 
Still
everything has an ending
someday.
 
Two people choose to part
in this city today;
things drew to a close silently.
 
Maria, there is someone I should love.
Sometimes I feel so lonely
but finally I'm satisfied by someone
I should love.
 
Maria, there is someone I should love.
Sometimes I get hurt deeply
but finally I'm healed by someone
I should love.
 
Maria, everyone is crying
but I want to believe
so I'm praying that
this will be the final love.
 
Beginnings come easily while
endings always have a reason

it's hard to pic either one but both kinda strikes home tbh ;w;
you should see me in a crown || Billie Eilish
and
Volver A Comenzar - Cafe Tacuba

Here's lyrics for the latter one!
If I made a list of my errors
Of the least to the worst
That exposed all the wounds,
The failures, disaffection and lies
 
I will offer the aroma of amber
I will offer the cedar of my tears
With the patience of the sea I will wait for life
To heal the confidence
If I could start over
I wouldn't have time to repair
 
If I made a voyage to my insides
And survived the laments
I would ask for the force to say how sorry I am
If I made a voyage to my insides
 
If I would start over
I wouldn't have time to repair
The spilled water is
The thirst that I feel will not satiate
 
How many things can I keep?
How many things can I treasure?
Sweet temptation
To leave it all
 
How much space do I want to occupy?
(Even the memories don't fit in this place)
How many things can I take?
(The last move should be the lightest)
Sweet temptation
To leave it all
Sweet temptation
To give it all away
 
If I could start over
I wouldn't have time to repair
The water spilled is
The thirst that I feel will heal me
The water spilled is
The thirst that I feel will heal me

I love the songs from the band Heilung. If you listen to their music or even just take a look at their visual expression on stage, you'll probably see why.
I think this is an especially good pick for this (big part of it being the animalistic sounds) but that's just my tastes:

@bhiurd: This is one of the things I find amazing, but don't really know why. I guess there's some sort of energy in that performance that fascinates me. The first video reminds me of an army preparing for an attack..

The video for this one always makes me feel things.


It’s also a tribute video to someone’s cat which makes me emotional too
