Reaching for a purpose,
A goal to lead you home.
Only to find that beyond,
Lies nothing more than misery,
Brought to your knees,
On this oppressive mission,
Never experienced,
A more helpless position.

Wait till the end, you'll love it. I promise. (:


Subtle yet powerful

This is a piece that really creeps up on you. It starts slow but just keeps pushing itself onward. The build is nice and I like the ending. The piano just keeps marching through your mind as you listen, making you keep going, pushing you to some unknown and distant place.

That said I can see where some might think the guitars were over the top or too strong at the end. I can also see what you mentioned about the fuzz. Taking them out may be an option but I believe that this song needs something strong at the end. The slow build, the "march" if you will comes to it's conclusion then release at the very end. I like that...if you do decide to take the guitars out I think you will find the end a bit too delicate, maybe just finding a way to lessen the fuzz in that section. still 10/10 from me as I think it deserves it for the over all mood and subtle strength of the song.

Thanks for the kind response. I'll take your constructive criticism into account also.

hehe, I gave myself goosebumps writing this ><


This is incredible! One reason I love it so much is because you often here much less soft piano songs like this on newgrounds, good change of pace. Very beautiful piano parts, very delicate, love all the space reverb. This song has alot of depth to it on a number of levels. I thought the song lost some of it's delicacy when the guitar comes in at the end though, i think it could have done without it. But great song, keep it up! And feel free to check out my stuff, it's very similar to this you might like it!

I considered taking the guitar out actually.
Mixing two guitar parts on the software I use makes a lot of fuzz.
I'll maybe adapt it with just piano (:
