Ahh, I meant to reply to this thread earlier but I got distracted, oops. Anyway, I really associate this song with the later Correctional Facility events:

Bleeding out - Imagine Dragons

Oh, you tell me to hold on
But innocence is gone
And what was right is wrong

'Cause I'm bleeding out
So if the last thing that I do
Is to bring you down
I'll bleed out for you
So I bare my skin
And I count my sins
And I close my eyes
And I take it in
And I'm bleeding out
I'm bleeding out for you

(Actually I associate more of their songs with No. 6, which may or may not be the reason I bought the album, haha. This was the first one I latched onto, however.)

And someone else I definitely want to mention is KOKIA, a Japanese singer-songwriter. (I'm quite a fan of her, so I'm a bit biased and tend to connect her songs to all the things I love, ssh.) She often sings about nature itself and the human nature, also themes in No. 6. I struggle to bring up just one song, so have two of my absolute favourites:

Chouwa oto ~with reflection~ - KOKIA (sound of harmony)

She starts to reverse the Japanese sounds in the second part of the song, which is why it may sound a little funny. Translation from here:

In the midst of the silence, a single drop
Causes a ripple that spreads through the water at the bottom of the well

The winter wind shakes the forest in my noisy heart
The things that can live with it stay as they are

Everyone who has heard the quiet voice in this forest has shed tears at noise

3 25 15 21 23 1
(this spells 'Cyouwa', harmony - next are the reversed lyrics)

Ceaselessly and quietly forest this in sounds of cacophony the
Heart noisy my in peace restore

Born is born is born is sound a
Sounds of sea the into sinks sinks sinks and
Born is born is born is sound a
Sounds of sea the with in blends blends blends and

I can't help but think of Nezumi's background, and of Shion in the very beginning with the storm.

And finally:

Kodoku na ikimono - KOKIA (Lonely beings)

This post is getting rather long, but I translated the lyrics over here. This is mostly a gut feeling in combination with the title.

Apologies for the length and the late reply!
