This is a song that rings of the many emotions of life, in an order that only I can know I suppose. I may make the video I planned for it, not sure. But yes, enjoy, and as always, please dont listen to it on laptop stock speakers and judge it by that alone. I mixed it for auxiliary speakers. Anyway, enough with the formalities, enjoy!


Truly jawdroppingly amazing and emotional dude. The beginning reminded me of stalactite covered ceilings in a very dark cave with all the water droplets playing in the background (tears and perhaps someone reminiscing about something that happened in the distant past that they wished they could forget). Stellar work on this song! Every time I hear this it reminds me of someone struggling through a battlefield and having to push forward, not knowing whether they will live to see another day. The way you used the rain and the echoed piano in the middle really creates an image of a solider seeing a friend die and having to carry on for himself / herself to survive through the battle (escalating string section). The ending was perfect and really makes me feel and believe that he/she survived. The constant rain in the background really enhances the never ending pain they are destined to endure for their lost comrades and the relief of being one of the lucky ones to have lived. One of your finest Mr. Smilez! You have one hell of a gift for creating mental images for your audience. Seems like a bunch of different emotions went into this song and hope to see more like it fromya soon. So inspirational! Deserves 50 BILLION plays and downloads! XP

Thank you, my friend. Your absolute paragraph of words is very moving. You have seen some of what I meant for you to see, and have seen other things of your own conjuring! The perfect response to me song! Start it, feel it, see it, and lose yourself within it.

This music is just AWESOME!!

KICK AAAASS!!! More requests everyday!
Acarse you can! As long as you do as you say and put me name on it and me link to Newgrounds yes! I have always wanted to see an animation go with this, I just never made one meself, might do that one day. I really don't mind whatever is in the animation so don't worry about it (From tellitubbies to Hentai, as long as it is not any I hate 'blank' country type stuff!).

Just send me a link to it when it is done and I'll pop a link to your video in the 'You Are Alive' description. And I always love to help people especially with me music so I cannot wait to see what you have done with it!

I give only you permission to use it, please do not pass it to any others to use without asking again, and thank you for asking in the first place!

Thank you for your interest and I hope your animation bodes well! More songs on the waaaaaaaaaaay!!!
