SO BEEN A WHILE. Been uh, busy, yeah. So here's one I wrote in 2015 and decided to redo since the original was slower and if you know me, slow is no bueno, we finish in 2 pumps here ma'am. This is probably one of the first puuuurely positive songs I'd ever written, I think I got the idea while watching mecha shows and seeing them break into space with stars in their eyes or some shit like that, or maybe it was Outlaw Star's general vibe that influenced my vibes for this, it's been a while and dr00gs have fried my brain ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯. I sincerely hope this does something for you, it might be cheesy or sound not very good but it's the best I can do and it comes from the heart (nohomo).

Here's the words

I can't remember the last time I felt joy

The years have passed since I was just a boy

I've gotta break away from everything that's bringin me down

The sky's my answer, I gotta leave this town

All my life, I've been shit on

I'm on my own and I'm never lookin' back

Into the astral skies I'm flyin' on

No more abuse from so-called friends now

I'm on my own and I'm finally free yeah

Into the astral skies I'm flyin' on

The skies are torn asunder by the starship

Into the atmosphere I'll take my astral trip

I'm breakin' away from the shackles holding my mind

Into the stars, anxious to see what I will find

PS to explain the picture, it was a cover art made by an old friend of mine for the project that I wanted this song to belong to, namely, Space Trans-Am.

It's got a romantic garage band feeling. I can visualize some young punks getting together, smoking some skunk weed, and grunging up the music together. Full love, reminds me of what I thought was the best possible genre of music at one point or another while growing up. I don't trust anyone who didn't have a punk rock phase :')

MercyfulDeath responds:

Ay thanks bud, truth be told the garage feel is exactly what I aim for with a lot of the shit I do. My favorite decade for metal and punk was the 80's, a time where the genres exploded in a lot of garages of disgruntled youth, that element is what makes it so attractive to me, the fire and reckless abandon of youth, which is exactly what I try to capture within my stuff. Thanks for the writeup b, I appreciate it.
