I would hardly call this band Objectivist, but my "theme song" so to speak is by No Doubt off their sleeper album The Beacon Street Collection:

"That's Just Me"

You think that I will change but you know that will never be I'm just that way, and that's just me

Well it's just the way I am and I am doin' all I can why can't you see, I just can't change

I could care less, what you see, I'm just nevertheless here for me...

You always get what you want but still keep lookin', I guess you just never get what you need

With your eyes wide open you still keep lookin' for your dreams, that's just me

Doesn't matter what you say cause my confidence will lead the way words will never do, sad but true

And if I didn't act this way well it just wouldn't be the same and that wouldn't do, cause I'm not you

I could care less, what you see, I'm just nevertheless here for me...

You always get what you want but still keep lookin' I guess you just never get what you need

With your eyes wide open you still keep lookin' for your dreams, that's just me

With your eyes wide open you still keep lookin' for your dreams, that's just me

That's just me, that's just me

Well it's just the way I am I am no Larry or a Sam why can't you see, I'm just that way

Well there it is it's right here, so crystal clear, well there it is it's right here

So crystal clear in front of my face

You always get what you want but never get what you need you want it

I guess you're just nevertheless lookin' for your dreams

I could care less what you see

This one's by Asia, called "Extraordinary Life." Very O'ist type of lyrics. I bolded my favorite passage.

A perfect day

Or so I say

From where

I'm standing

This rollercoaster ride

Fate will decide

The ending

Love everlasting

Or lost on the way

The smiles

And the frowns

The ups and downs

Of fortune turning

The twists and turns

The lessons learned

The bridges burning

Nights to remember

And never forget

Go, seize the day

Wake up and say

This is an

Extraordinary life

Enjoy today

Come what may

This is an

Extraordinary life

I gave it all

My cards have fallen

But I'm still alive

And in the end

Believe my friend

I will survive

Glory and heartache

And some of the joy

Go, seize the day

Wake up and say

This is an

Extraordinary life

Enjoy today

Come what may

This is an

Extraordinary life

All of the good times

and all of the bad

Responsibility is totally

Mine I know

I rightly stand accused

But I believe

That I can change

Yes

I can change my world

Go, seize the day

Wake up and say

This is an

Extraordinary life

Enjoy today

Come what may

This is an

Extraordinary life

Stand-by Rascal Flatts:

You feel like a candle, in a hurricane,

just like a picture, with a broken frame,

alone and helpless, like you've lost your fight

but you'll be alright, you'll be alright

'Cause when push comes to shove,

you find what you're made of

you might think that you'll break

that it's all you can take

on your knees, you look up

decide you had enough,

you get mad, you get strong,

wipe your hands, shake it off

then you stand!

Life's like a novel, with the end ripped out,

the edge of a canyon, with only one way down,

take what you're given, before it's gone;

start holding on, keep holding on

'Cause when push comes to shove,

you find what you're made of

you might think that you'll break

that it's all you can take

on your knees, you look up

decide you had enough,

you get mad, you get strong,

wipe your hands, shake it off

then you stand!

Every time you get up

and get back in the race,

one more small piece of you

starts to fall into place

'Cause when push comes to shove,

you find what you're made of

you might think that you'll break

that it's all you can take

on your knees, you look up

decide you had enough,

you get mad, you get strong,

wipe your hands, shake it off

then you stand!
