The goal is to determine the song title and artist from these haikus. All the artists will have received mainstream success in some form.

Haiku #1

"A possessor of
marionette expertise."
- Alloy Performer

Haiku #2

"Degradation of
one's overall attitude."
- One Extra Digit

Haiku #3

"A compilation
of objects, short in stature."
- Eyes Closing Often

Haiku #4

"Within an insect's
abode, a transformation."
- Superb Resonance

Haiku #5

"Rock's adversary
opening layers of skin."
- Chi Town Neighbourhood

The haiku itself holds no significance over the answer.

I'm from

North America.



I was born during

the mid 80's.

My favourite types of music are
