Using MCR in a music therapy session? (WANT OPINIONS!)

I've often contemplated actually using my favorite band in one of my clinical music therapy sessions.

Most of my clinicals (being kid's setting, geriatric's setting and hospice setting) have never quite been the proper setting for MCR music seeing as their music seems to be...well, metaphoric.

This semester I am at a psychiatric facility with adolescent girls with behavioral and mood disorders, some of which happen to know who MCR are.

Some of MCR's less metaphoric songs?

"Helena"
"I'm Not Okay"
"Ghost of You"
"I Don't Love You"
"Teenagers" (however, I don't think it would be very professional of me, or very safe of me, to bring in a song that says "Teenagers scare the living shit out of me" to a bunch of adolescent girls with behavioral issues)

What do you guys think?

I want opinions =)
