Songs about Boot Camp Boot CampBy Soundgarden | | | | I must obey the rules
I must be tame and cool
No staring at the clouds
I must stay on the ground
In clusters of the mice
The smoke is in our eyes
Like babies on display
Like angels in a cage
I must be pure and true
I must contain my views
There must be something else
There must be something good
Far away | |
This song has to do with Boot Camp, because it talks about this guy who goes to boot camp, and he has to obey the rules –just like Garrett- had to do when his parents sent him to Lake Harmony. Garrett can’t do what he wants to do anymore, and he must follow what the people tell him to do…

Overwhelmed
By Hawk Nelson

In a world of fate
Where no one seems to care
I feel so afraid but you are always there
When time stands still
And no one is around
You are there standing my ground
Cause I can feel you change my heart
You've overwhelmed me from the start
I can feel you change my mind for the better of mankind
You only take what's yours
Heaven knows I take much more
Shadows overcome my soul know you're here

This song relates to the book Boot Camp because, when Garrett goes to Lake Harmony, he is a bit overwhelmed… but in the end when he gets out of Lake Harmony, he feels that it has changed him; and now he is a better person…

Who I am hates who I’ve been
Relient K

I watched the proverbial sunrise
Coming up over the Pacific
And you might think I'm losing my mind
But I will shy away from the specifics
Cause I don't want you to know where I am
Cause then you'll see my heart
In the saddest state it's ever been
This is no place to try and live my life
Stop right there
That's exactly where I lost it
See that line?
Well, I never should've crossed it
Stop right there
Well, I never should've said that
It's the very moment that I wish that I could take back
I'm sorry for the person I became
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change
I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
Cause who I am hates who I've been
Who I am hates who I've been
I talked to absolutely no one
Couldn't keep to myself enough
And the things bottled inside
Had finally begun to create so much pressure
That I'd soon blow up
And I heard the reverberating footsteps
Syncing up to the beating of my heart
And I was positive that unless
I got myself together
I would watch me fall apart
And I can't let that happen again
Cause then you'll see my heart
In the saddest state it's ever been
This is no place to try and live my life
Stop…
