a long expansive shoegaze tune. Dreamy and droney. Spent about 4 hours on this one today
tuning: FACFAE


Oh crap.

Make more, the world needs more of this.

The Scientist

The scientist, sitting in his dark and dull room falls asleep... and daydreams of the outside world. What is it like out there? Are there robots scanning the cities for civilization? Are there green trees that float on islands in the magestic waters of the seas? Are there actual creatures with beating hearts, flying in the night sky underneath the twinkling moonlight? Is it possible that there is an actual outside world, or is all of that just an illusion told by our leaders?

Perhaps this is just a fake world, but its alright to imagine that its real. The way the sun hovers over the horizon, casting a pink and gold glow throughout the world is convincing enough for me to sit back, relax, and enjoy the glow. One of these days im going to get out of here. My robot and I. We will travel the sands of the beaches, sail the waters of the ocean, and climb the rocky mountains of the terrain. Ive seen those pictures on the TV. No man could ever make such wonderful paintings of life and joy.

Sure, we can make these machines from what earth gives us, but are they truly pieces of art, or is just the rock itself all we really need? This metal feels cold... but the dirt feels warm. Ive had this plant sitting on my table for sometime now, feeding it any droplet of water I can give it... nurturing it with all the care and hope I can give it... maybe I can one day give it the sun.

Thats what I will do, I will give you the sun. You will see! I promise you, when I get out of here, I will hand you the moon and all the stars surrounding it. I will suck the clouds from the deep blue sky, and blow them over your face. I will climb the highest peak and pick the most beautiful flower I can find. I will walk the earth, I will feel the earth, and one day when im old and grey I will sink down into the earth and be apart of it. I will be with the clouds. I will be with the sun. I will be with the sky... forever.

(((I nearly cried when writing this... no kidding. This was one of the most beautiful songs I have heard in a long time. Thank you)))

SineRider responds:

Wow that is some nice writing there. You sure were able to take a lot from this song, even though it was a pretty simple, personal meaning to me. It was a real joy to read :)

I'm really glad you liked this song, I put my heart into it when I wrote it

Overall Great!

The music is well done. The only thing I feel is missing is vocals. It really feels like it would fit. Not rating you low for that. Just my suggestion. Props to you!
