Welcome to the planet Earth.

Some time in a distant past, this planet had life- it was a green and blue oasis in an otherwise lifeless, dark universe. It was filled with all kinds of strange, wonderful creatures, from small, flying creatures called insects to giant, majestetic sea dwellers called blue whales. This was the one and only planet in the entire universe to host life.

At some point in time, a harsh, cold wind blew around the planet, exterminating all its life. That cold wind still rages once in a hundred years, but there is nothing left for it to murder. Instead, this wind freezes the oceans and skies, covering it with a cold, white carpet of ice and snow.

Today, Earth is just another dark, cold and lifeless planet in a dark, cold and lifeless universe.

Welcome to this frozen desert called Earth.

Enchanting.

I am a writer and I love to find the music in words. Occasionally, though, there's a song that brings out the story in music. It's an inversion of what I most often seek (writing so brilliant that it's almost like listening to a song). What made this was the story.

This is a sweeping track I can see myself relistening to over and over again. It sounds like the introduction to a game to me. It's building into something... a story... sweeping and emotional. Well crafted. I love finding the odd Newsgrounds song that's just so enchanting I can't help but download it to listen to over and over again.

way to be cynical sbb LOL

now canb i do imagery when everything is ice?? just a big white globe circling around in space.. frozen evcerything.. just to make it interesting im gonna have some wayward lifeform land and start cruising around this lifeless planet while skeletons and crysalids of frozen specimens are everywhere..going down into caves entirely frozen with giant crystal stalagmites stick out everywhere.. and then up to the surface with leagues of frozen petrified trees dominate the landscape.. and then off into the night sky which throws a blue white sheen on the ground below as the alien gets bored and leaves this semi-interesting planet once and for all.

-shawn-

Sorry for destroying Earth man, I didn't realize you were going to imagine things at the time... please forgive me. I'm glad you could squeeze something out of it though, good work.


T_T *Sniff*

The description almost brought a tear to my eye. If only to imagine Life on Earth wiped out, but having an entire Universe devoid of life, what a sad existence it would be... The universe is constantly moving, recycling, moving, adjusting.. one day this planet will be gone forever, but Thankfully, and yet with both fear and sorrow, we will all be dead before that occurs. The music alone played it's part in what I just said. I love listening to music that makes me image, create, and become. You are one of the few artists here on NG that can reach that form of emotion. Keep it up my friend. When I have time I'll take all my favorites and DL them, then go pay Chronamut's page a visit, lol

Clever....

Like everyone else, what really got me was the text. Great work with making this piece a thing of beauty. I know myself enough to say that without the text, I would have impatiently passed this off. With it, I actually stopped and took a full listen..... genius, dude :)
