Echoes in time (free verse poem)

Prompt: Pick a band or solo artist. Write a poem that includes 3 – 5 song titles by said band/artist.

With a thoughtless lack of action
and callous, careless words,
you smashed my dreams and aspirations
into razor-edged smithereens that
tempted me into dangerous darkness,
a world where I could breathe
and be comfortably numb,
where your taunts
were just echoes in the
empty spaces of time…

 

I think the band I chose is easy to figure out.  Can you pick all the song titles in the poem?  There are five.
