A Warm Place reminds me of eric and dylan after the shooting has stopped and they roam the school, thinking about what they had done and such, and reflect on their lives. And when they are about to commit suicide.
It also reminds me of Pekka Eric Auvinen after he has stopped and shooting, and pretty much like i said about Eric and Dylan

I actually was thinking of the song this morning for some reason and I listen to it....

I don't know if this song has been mentioned in the other thread, but Ich Will by Rammstein reminds me of Columbine and of mass shooters in general, especially with the lyrics and the music video in mind. Although I know that it is rarely the main reason, I think many shooters still want to be seen by the world. When it says "Do you see me? / Do you hear me?", I think this is what many mass shooters want, although it's not just "for attention" in the futile way, it is a tragic cry for attention, a real feeling that no-one cares about them. In the clip the band commits a bank robbery although they seem to do this more for immortality than for the money itself, the robbery becomes a spectacle, it is staged and they don't try to escape. When they leave the bank they are cheered by the crowd, filmed by journalists and arrested by the police.
