Song suggestions for a drum corps show

Hey! So I'm starting work on a project called "Wake Up" and I'm looking for ideas of some possible songs to put in it. They can either be from this website or big professional works.

The show theme is more on the depressing/somber side with a twist at the very end. (Not spoiling anything yet) But help would be appreciated with the musical selections and also a percussion writer would be awesome!

Thanks!

Thomas Bergersen DCI Show

I am currently working on my own drum corps piece using music by Thomas Bergersen in his album "Illusions." Please check it out and let me know what y'all think. Check the description to see what I plan to do with that piece. Please feel free to critique it and give me ideas. I hope y'all like what I have so far. Anyway here's the link. https://musescore.com/user/10964131/scores/5171039   
Oh and if you don't know Thomas Bergersen I recommend you check him out. Listen to Two Steps From Hell.

Help Appreciated

I'm not too great at spicing up Low Brass or bass parts. Nor am I too great at writing battery parts. Bear with me on this piece since I haven't figured out on an opener and if you'd like to help me write it that would be awesome! Either way help is much appreciated so if you'd like to collaborate on my piece Life To Undead (which needs a better title too) I'd love the help!
