The sample (HOO HAH HOO TIKI TIKI) is from Spongebob. The song is about the power and mystery of your subconscious mind.

This is pretty interesting. The composition of this song is not bad. There is a lot of room for variety, especially with the lead melody utilized by the piano. Something I have found to be rare on NG but very effective is the power of transitions. Sticking with one catchy melody does work pretty well, but don't be afraid to mix things up and bring it back to that main melody you want. If you look at it from this perspective, this entire song is based off of four chords. Again, it's not a bad thing, but it creates this repetitive feeling at times. Some samples were used well, and others could have been used better. The piano gets annoying at times because it is so short and sharp. Try softening it a little, maybe add some reverb to give it a more full sound. Some samples did not go together as well as I thought they would. Little things here and there that don't break the song, but are noticeable. Trust me, I have a lot of experience with failing at giving a song that clean sound. I think you have a lot of potential, and good ideas. Hopefully this helps you out even in the slightest. The beauty of NG is that you get feedback from people who essentially struggled through the same things you are experiencing. And I can tell you, I'm still struggling to get to where I wanna be with FL Studio, so don't let the criticism get to you. Keep it up!

Sorry to knock you down a peg bro, but this is not like THE hottest thing I've heard.

I like that you have decent structure and you are utilizing different rhythms and loops well, chords, etc.

But a lot of the rhythms are kind of weird, and especially the samples and soundfonts are super unconvincing and don't play out well. It's especially jarring cause you have so many different qualities of samples and don't mesh them well. Like the chanting vocals is much better than the awful and I mean AWFUL piano samples. There's no velocity or articulation.

Also as this has kept playing you don't vary the beat almost at all.

Also the strings aren't utilized super well, there is a lot more to strings than just stacatto.

Ultimately it's clearly you've learned some stuff but there's a lot lacking in how you mix and use your samples and sounds. You want maybe more reverb or distance for a beat like this using what is supposed to be REAL instruments. It feels like a stock phone ringtone or something like that. It needs more mixing, processing, better samples and soundfonts, all that good stuff.

I want to stress though, that at one point I was just like you. I was not very good, but trust me if you just keep an open mind and learn you can go very far. (just look at my first song on here and then my last).

This is really good! I felt the kick was a little too big, and you should try adjusting the velocities for the piano notes. Other than that, I really like it :)
