  1. The River: "Those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a curse / Is a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse?"
  2. The Promised Land: "Blow away the dreams that tear you apart / Blow away the dreams that break your heart / Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted"
  3. Badlands: "Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king, and the king ain't satisfied 'til he rules everything"
  4. Backstreets: "Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see / Trying to learn how to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be?
