Medium: Television
Fandom: Dollhouse
Subject: Paul Ballard
Title: Your Soul and Your Aching Bones
Notes: For whedonland. Also, Matchbox 20, Blue October, OneRepublic and Imogen Heap are .m4a's and I don't know how to fix that, but they should play just fine in iTunes. I'll re-upload them onto MediaFire once I get that part figured out.

.ZIP, cover art + individual songs

1. Big Bad World One : Jonathan Coulton
All alone by the table of food in my wrinkled suit and my borrowed tie
Only thinking of something to say in the moment after the girl goes by
Everyone else is having fun or else pretending to
I eat another crudite

I quit, I'm done
Cause I don't think it's gonna turn out okay
It's no fair, it's no fun
If every time it's gonna end the same way:
Me: zero, Big bad world: one

(Paul's a big old joke in the FBI. Poor bb.)

2. Know When To Walk Away : Jay Clifford
Know when to walk away

The only way that I know how to be
Is slowly killing me
But I keep it in my coat
Or maybe stuffed down my throat

(Paul leaves the FBI and lets the Dollhouse win.)

3. Disease : Matchbox Twenty
Feels like you're making a mess
You're hell on wheels in a black dress
You drove me to the fire
And left me there to burn

Every little thing you do is tragic
All my life, oh was magic
Beautiful girl
I can't breathe

(Paul's obsession with Echo never seems to get him anywhere good.)

4. If It Kills Me : Jason Mraz
Hello, tell me you know
Yeah, you figured me out
Something gave it away
It would be such a beautiful moment
To see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now


How long, can I go on like this,
Wishing to kiss you,
Before I rightly explode?
This double life I lead isn't healthy for me
In fact it makes me nervous
If I get caught I could be risking it all

(Paul/Mellie. Probably my favorite song for Paul/Mellie.)

5. Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

(Echo beats the snot out of Paul. ...A lot.)

6. The Moment I Said It : Imogen Heap
The moment I said it,
The moment I opened my mouth
Lead in your eyelids,
Bulldozed the life out of me

I know what you're thinking,
But darling you're not thinking straight
Sadly things just happen we can't explain

(The downward spiral of Paul and Mellie's relationship after she tells him she's a doll, particularly the night they have that really hot rough sex.)

7. Conversation Via Radio (Do You Ever Wonder) : Blue October
Do you ever wonder
How hard you hit?
You broke my thunder
Do you ever wonder
How hard you hit?
You broke my thunder

I'm cramped and crawling from under the dead
I'm sick of living without you in bed
I've made mistakes that I wrote... That I read...
But now I just can't seem to be preoccupied
The heart was tossed with a black lace chain
With these hands that I write with
And the ode that I live by...
I will never be with you.

(Paul after breaking up with Mellie and the betrayal that he feels from knowing she's really an Active.)

8. All Fall Down : OneRepublic
Yeah God love your soul and your aching bones
Take a breath, take a step, meet me down below
Everyone's the same
our fingers to our toes
We just can't get it right
But we're on the road

If ever your will starts crashing down
Whenever your will starts crashing down
Whenever your will starts crashing down
That's when you find me.

(Paul's protective nature, especially in his relationship with Echo in Season 2.)

9. We Will Rock You : Queen
Buddy you're a boy make a big noise
Playin' in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on yo' face
You big disgrace
Kickin' your can all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

(Paul kicks ass. Did you see him knee that guy in the face in episode one? -Standing up?- Paul has a habit of beating the shit out of people, unless they're Echo. It's awesome.)
