We just finished reading A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway in class. I was just assigned a project on it today. I have to give five songs related to the book in some way.

If you havnt read the book it is essentially about war, using alcohol as an escape, and the death of a loved one (in this book it's the main characters fiancé and baby that died as it was born). Rain and water in general is a main symbol of the book(stands for death and rebirth). The main character is also pretty emotionally numb throughout the book as well.

So far the songs I have are:
hammerhead by offspring (about war in general)
6 pack by black flag (about the use of alcohol)
a farewell to arms by machine head (again, about war in general)

I can't think of any others so it'd be a big help if some of you could suggest some songs that relate to the book or the characters.

Anything else besides war songs? I don't want to turn in a project about 4 war songs and one about alcohol. Maybe something about the death of a love one or about water relating to death or rebirth. Thanks for the suggestions so far guys.

Alright I found my rain/water/death song. A million miles of water by rhcp if anyone is wondering.

Can anyone reccomend a song about someone who is constantly trying to prove himself?

Only need one more song. Current list:

hammerhead(war)
6 pack(alcohol)
a farewell to arms(war)
million miles of water(water/death/rebirth)
and maybe hero of war by rise against as a song for someone trying to prove himself. Not sure about this song yet. I'd like to hear if anyone has any better suggestions for a song relating to this.

EDIT: it would also be great to hear some suggestions about someone who is emotionally numb or apathetic.
