Author Comments

This is a collaboration between Jessismith, Corbet, Corsica_S, FlashNinja and myself.

Jessismith is on vocals--she also wrote the lyrics for the parts she sang.

Corbet did the strings for the "Pirate Bay" section and provided the Tibet Monk samples.

Corsica_S performed the Poem, "Imagine."

FlashNinja did the "Flemenco" sounds.

I composed and produced the entire piece.

This piece evolves throughout the song and ends with a spectacular grand finale.

The basis for this song is built on the idea that a group of scientists created a time machine for the purpose of studying the past by traveling there themselves dressed in Gypsy disguise. Throughout their journey, they warp to various eras of the earth's evolution. I will not spoil you with the details of the story line--hopefully, you will understand what it is by listening to the song. :)

Here are the Lyrics:

In the sands of time
The truth will be foretold
The truth that lives in all of us
Through the ambiance of space and time
Through the dawn of evolution
It's a revelation of untold mysteries
It begins in the very depth of our souls
In the pure essence of eternal destiny
With existence and creation bound as one
Reach into the light of your heart
Feel the glow of fascination
And rise above and beyond the truth

We ask ourselves, "What will the future hold?"
Will our world be the same as it always was when we are old?
Seeking the answers from a long forgotten time
We finally make a breakthrough and soar into the sky

Setting sail to a time unknown
Our lives changed by the life we are shown
Disaster and chaos a thousand years away
Basking in the light of a perfect Summer's day

Endless storms and rising tides
Raging wars and crimson skies (Repeat 4 times)

Imagine the world without pain
Imagine the world without sadness
Imagine the world without fear
Without all the things you'd like to disappear
Imagine that every single day is not another battle
Imagine that no one dies because of his religion or the color of his skin
Imagine that we forgive what's unforgivable
And all the hatred that's inside of us will never be revealed
Can you imagine it?

This is good in all respects except one.

I love this song. I'll get that out of the way right now. The beat flows effortlessly with the lyrics and blends into a mounting crescendo. That's excellent.

What's not so excellent is the fact that the song stops in the middle and /preaches/ at me. I'd love to loop this or a couple of days on end, but I can't do that when it takes four minutes out of ten to tell passerby not to kill people based on race. It's extremely jarring and would function much better if this song was split into this version, with the poem, and a loopable version without.

To me, this song is still in an unfinished state.

XayberOptix responds:

In the very first version, we had it the way that you described, but then it sounded monotonous throughout the song--that's when we decided to break it up with the poem towards the 2nd half. :) Thank you for your feedback/review!

Sweet raptor jesus!!!

This is absolutely a phenomenal song! Kudos to you man!

XayberOptix responds:

It is my honor to accept your compliment! However, I would also like to pass along thanks to all of those involved in creating/providing certain elements to complete the song.
