This is the song I uploaded previously, but with vocals added. It does qualify as a different song because the mood is changed drastically by the harmonies and power of the choirs. This is about a girl I used to date who I wronged terribly.

And yes, A Prison For Your Soul is the rap album, so why the hell is this track on it? Well because rap is poetry, and this song is beyond poetic. Plus it didn't fit the deathcore or electronic descriptions for the other two albums, so there was not much choice after I realized that lol.


This song is from the album A Prison For Your Soul (2013)

Every little piece just crumbles away like
love doesn't mean a mother fucking thing
Every single hour of every single day I've
tried to understand this world and its ways

Every little light on every little house on
every little street in every little town just
shines like there's no night, nothing here to put you out, but you're
running without sight, and the only path is down, down, down
Down, down, down

Any kind of method to assuade these stabs of guilt, bursts of
anguish over pain that my hand dealt but I'd not felt, how to
tell you with your words, I do not know but I will try, 'cause if
something doesn't give then what will give will be my life

She quickly moved on, and so did everyone, all the
memories are still inside, but outside, they're all gone
Still can't hear that song without remembering prom and how she
told me she was leaving, far away for a new home
Her new home

Every little error, every scratch and every step, every
failure echoes still in every blink, in every breath
Every selfish choice, every ruse, and every mess, every
cold manipulation for the rush, for the flesh

No penance will do, not for what I did to you, though I
pay in vivid recollections of what I put you through
Frightening, how controlling, how real is my need just to
hear your voice and know you're still, indeed, alive
Still alive

Twisting in my core, something desperate to escape, trying to
settle all my scores, every hell I helped create
Monsters in the dark, nothing literal to hate, just a
metaphor in art for my unalluring traits

Crazed from all the torment, driven to the edge, no re-
lief from troubles dormant, drowning in the dredge
Don't keep me afloat if I am so close to dead, either
pull me out or let the horror swallow my head
Stop up my breath
Bring on my death
Haunt me for life, no more and no less

I am surely enjoying this song. Usually I don't like the music in Newgrounds with sang lyrics, but this is one special case.

Sorry it took so long for me to respond, but thank you so much! This song really hits me hard emotionally and I hoped that would carry on to others.

If you liked this one, check out Murder, it's another one with melodic vocals. And all of my stuff has a trippy, "soundscape" kinda feel to it, like Pink Floyd's "wall of sound."

Anyhow, thanks again, have a good day!
