Songs that Define the INTJ

There are just certain songs out there that make me think that is so INTJ. This post shouldn't start a full on debate of why these songs aren't INTJ-like or someone providing empirical evidence of why I am wrong. Also, I am not claiming that any of these performers are INTJs. These songs, in my opinion, create a recognition of identification. Let me also add, I am not rating in order to preference. Some selections have explicit lyrics and is labeled as such.

1# Only - Nine Inch Nails [Explicit]

 Reason: Lyrics

Kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself
Sometimes I think I can see right through myself

Reminds me of Introverted Intuition.
Less concerned about fitting into the world
Your world that is 

Just an example of the INTJ's independent and cynical nature.

 #2 Gary Numan - Are Friends Electric?       

 Reason: There is something about the lyrical imagery that strikes me as bleak observation that truly befits the INTJ.
It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls

An analogy of emotions comparable to environmental discomfort.
So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And issues
And things that I just don't understand
The ability to connect everything- reflection

                                     #3 Garbage - Not Your Kind of People

 Reason: Lyrics
We are not your kind of people.
Speak a different language.
We see through your lies.
We are not your kind of people.
Won't be cast as demons,
Creatures you despise.

Do I really need to explain? (We are extraordinary people)

#4 Kool & Kass - Pleasance (WDGAF) [Explicit]

Reason: This is a little off the beaten path and every time it plays, it feels like an anthem.
Keep it stupid, never scared of a better flow
Words from a hat like barely a metaphor 
Not being "scared of a better flow" is about being innovative and improving without fear of being criticized.  "words from a hat" is abstractly describing thoughts in translation with "like barely a metaphor" as the actual metaphor. INTJs commonly speak and think this way. Also a very clever play on words.

Not giving a fuck is the predisposition of this type.
Flip my money back and forth
I don't listen to anybody anymore
I know I said it before
Fuck it
I do what I want
You can suck it

Two tears in a bucket

 #5 Flobots - Handlebars

 Reason: Lyrics
I can ride my bike with no handlebars
Riding a bike without handlebars is about being an independent free-thinker which is closely associated with the INTJ. 
I'm all curled up with a book to read
The importance of education and the comfort of gathering information.
Me and my friends understand the future
I see the strings that control the systems
The meaning is very future-oriented and connecting the patterns in the system which is how an INTJ processes information using Introverted Intuition. 

#6 Bodycount - Institutionalized [Explicit]

  This is an incredible revamp of Suicidal Tendencies - Institutionalized.
  Reason: The entire video/song.

 #7 Wombats - Last Night I Dreamt...

Reason: I'll just leave this one here for you to analyze for yourself.

I hope you have enjoyed the mostly interpreted selections. What song(s) make you think that's so INTJ? Share your choices in the comments.
