Hey, I've decided to release all the other songs from my album onto Newgrounds. Some of you may recognize some riffs in these tunes as riffs in some of my 8-bit work - infact, I wrote these, and then reworked parts of them into chiptune down the line. So while the 8-bit versions were published first, you could consider some of these songs the "Original Version" of certain tunes.

Alright, this song. It was inspired by a movie I had seen. An animated feature known as Midori. It was probably one of the most harrowing, soul destroying movies I've ever watched. It makes you feel bad to be a person. I would not recemond watching it, actually, because while it's good art, it's a terrible experience. This song was my way of scrubbing the movie from my brain space, by just shunting the memories of the movie into the lyrics so I don't have to think about this movie anymore.

All instruments and vocals were done by me. I'm not an amazing singer, but it's not like I was gonna get anyone else to do it, so I did it myself.

Here are the lyrics :

She's performing everyday

Doing chores like she's a slave

Always watching passing trains

She feels nothing but unending pain

Midori always wants to cry

Midori always wants to die

Midori wishes she was dead

Midori wishes this would end

Twelve years old

Sold to a freak show

Groomed and abused

Feeling hollow

Everything she sees

Everything she dreams

Dies for Midori

Just like her mommy

She's been sexually abused

She feels she has no value

The only thing she knows is pain

It can never be any other way

Midori always wants to cry

Midori always wants to die

Midori wishes she was dead

Midori wishes that this would end
