What the heck am I doing on the front page?!



I don't know how many days I have left.
What makes me think I'll even live another hour?
Why even bother living this life only to lose it all.
Chasing after the f****** wind.

I could live to all the good moral standards of my culture
but I'd die just the same as the people with the worst moral standards.
I think I'd be happier being an immoral person, though I know it's a lie.

My heart reeks corruption.
Following my desires I'd never want to work,
never help people,
unless I get something out of it of corse
and just be a blood sucking leech on everyone around me but worse.
Destroying the very things that sustain me.


I don't want to hurt people
but if I don't, I'll hurt myself.
Either way I'm going to cause destruction and death.
So wouldn't it be better for only one person to die than many.

Sure, they'll be sad, but they will find a way to live without me, right?
What am I thinking! they are no different than me!
Then we should all, just, die.



You speek rightly. You do deserve death
You have thought nothing but the evils of your wicked heart since the day of your creation.
You could never be pleasing to God.

But do you think God didn't know that?
You think God made you just to bring you pain?

Know this, you will always have problems in this life
but hear me correctly when I say this statement.

your corruption is your fault.
your corruption is your fault.
Not because you could chose not to be corrupt,
but because you have not given up on yourself.

You run like a mouse on a wheel trying to get away,
no trying to walk on water,
no trying to fly with your arms.
You try and try and try, to do something you can never do.
but you were never meant to.
you need only to seek the one who gives freely.

I know your impatient,
you could be watching tv or doing something to amuse your mind.

But when you realise the truth, that you have nothing,

Look to God, not yourself.
Because He is our only real foundation in this life.
You will go to hell in your own strength.

Please, realise God's love for you,
despite all your corruption
and may His love, change you

Okay but....

although the animation is quite good (i doubt i could do something of this quality) and think that you are entitled to your right to freedom of speech in whatever form that takes, i dont think that preaching about god being your only choice of saviour online is the best tactic. I give you a 5 for the animation but the overall story and lyrics were just very depressing. I wouldnt have minded that if you evened it out a little bit hell i like stuff like coldplay and linkin park even snow patrol but only because they mix happiness with the depressing. however you just went all out with trying to preach that life is dull and depressing unless you belive in god whereas i dont find this the case just look at aethiest celebrities such as ricky gervais. Basically good animation but the story could do with some work, and in my opinion god is not the answer its just something to hope in for those who have no hope which in itself is not a crime as long as it doesnt interfere with or damage the lives of others.

If there is no God you can do what you want with no fear or guilt.
If there is a God His judgement is waiting in the end, and all have sinned and fall short.

Only Jesus could live up to the standard. He didn't have to but He gave His life to pay for our sins. I fear for those who do not fear or turn to God.

So it's okay for God to help one person but not another if it changes their life?

Thanks for the 2.5 stars ;)

I kind of knew where this was heading, but your plea to a god is beyond bullshit. You people have had over 2000 years to prove anything exists, and yet, you come up with less every year. Im still amazed that people still worship such stupidity. Maybe if you took some time to look up the validity of the bible, torah and koran, you would see they are all lies written to enslave people. I am a very content nihilist. No god, no point. I wont even get into the immorality of a religion that demands people worship a zombie on a stick.

I cant even give you points for the animation. The stupidity of it decimated any points possible. I know for future reference, not to watch crap you put out. So noted.

Wondered where this was going...

... and expected some interesting conclusions. But then everything went to God.

the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing

The greatest flash video on newgrounds

I have watched many videos on newgrounds being funny, action packed, deep in message, and I can honestly say I have not seen a greater more informative, meaningful message than this. Thank you for making this video and may we always be strong and remember everything happens for a reason and even if we sin, as long as we seek God, repent and try to learn from our mistakes, life is complete :). Ameen.

nahtanojmal responds:

Not the greatest but I'm glad you think so ;)
Thanks :D

Not really a comtemplation.....

I'm not much of a God person so i can't say i really connected with the overall message of your work.
I found the dialouge to be quite whiny and self-pitying to begin with and when it eventually developed to be a religious piece you lost me.
I suppose the main issue i had with the film is that the character is presented in such a negative light and the whole visual style is dark and depressing but when God eventually comes into the equation nothing really changes.
It's just this sort of downward spiral of depression that keeps going because this guy hasn't lived his life for God.
To me the guy just comes off as a rather boring and jaded human being who's life sucks because he doesn't do anything other than complain about how much his life sucks.
If he wasn't such a negative nancy, aimlessly wandering around waiting for his life to be improved by some sort of magical external force then maybe he'd look on the bright side a bit more.
And finally it's revealed that all of these problems will go away if the guy decides to love card debt included.
This is all just my opinion like your film is yours but i felt like you missed your mark with this film.
The drawings were nice but a bit inconsistent at times, some images were quite powerful and detailed while some were very plain and lacked the emotional force some other scenes had.
Music was quite suitible for the mood you were going for and your dialouge was paced pretty well between sections.

nahtanojmal responds:

Getting people out of depression is not my mark.
Getting people to think about their life after death is my mark.
I'm sorry you don't think it's a contemplation but you did write a length review so you must have thought about something ;)
Thanks for your honest review
