All the determination, all the hard work, the changes I've made to better present myself, the things I mentally threw away to make things better, all of it now useless. All that energy and time, for nothing. Blinded by what I thought was love, was only false hopes. Confusion now lays rest on me.

What I do now is completely up to me and me only, not only shall I benefit from this unfortunate turn of events, but I shall also learn from them, learn from my mistakes, in hopes that things shall be better the next time around. The time is now to make errors, but these errors are for the better, as they will help me in the future. When the time comes to finally reach realization that the world is filled with opportunities, I shall then hit proper maturity and make my actions count from there on in.

But before I was about to make my final decision, I realized the essential possibilities. I had completely disregarded the fact that things might have been simply coincidental and didn't have any connection. I forgot about the forgiving emotion that usually guided me throughout the day and night. I was thinking out of anger, hate, and confusion. I didn't want to look back, I didn't want to take suggestions. The day before, I had become a heartless, insensive person that didn't want to think good about anything. I didn't want to believe that things were going to stay the same. I wanted change, but for some odd reason, I was demanding it from the wrong place. I now realize that I was being a fool for thinking like that. Things are going to get better without changing. Just wait and see...

I guess this isn't all for nothing.


EDIT: I messed up on the bass automation. It's fixed now. I am aware that there is some percussion automation that's out of shape as well, I'll get to that as soon as I can.

this song makes me happy on the inside for some reason XD

Prodigal responds:

Thanks dude. The song was meant to portray confusion and wonder in the intro, but then convert into a more happy feeling, an example is when the bass is added to the mix, it gives that "things aren't as bad as they seem" kind of feeling, and the same goes with the percussion. The breakdown displays one of those "On second thought" kinds of feelings, but it all comes back to being happy. The outro gives the feeling that everything is alright.

I hope to add some finishing touches on this very soon :D
