The Birthday Massacre – Pins and Needles, from the album Pins and Needles. Goth rock.
As I get toward the end of Book 3 and start putting out chapter-title lists and their inspirations, you’ll be seeing more of The Birthday Massacre. I wanted to bring up this one though, because it’s not relevant to any particular chapter but was influential to the book as a whole. The phrase gets mentioned a time or two in the text, and overall I like to think that there’s an ‘unused memories/conscience waking up’ sort of theme to a few of the character arcs.
