Updated: Loudness/punchiness. I realised I had droped the master volume by 19db upon export (as I was listening at a quieter volume before). Also slightly altered transients and compression.

I started this in the summer of 2015 and only just got round to finishing it. Based on the story of Gurren Lagann, this song talks about Kamina's death and how it affects Simon. Those of you who have seen the anime will understand it more. If you haven't seen it, what the hell are you doing with your life?

When we leave a trace behind
All these shadows we touch
Made real.
We leave our memories behind
Finally I am human.

First Verse:
(On and on and on and on...)
All hope is gone
In the world where I dreams had begun
A world of lost dreams
My humanity
Taken away from me
Now you've left me behind.

2nd Verse
I lived a life in peace and ignorance
Under the earth I laid
One day my world was shattered
That's how I came into
This vast world

3rd Verse:
Wheels be a-turning
The eternal spin of life
Blaze our path
A long night goes by
As the sun rises anew
Grab tomorrow with both hands
Pierce the sky!

Have you ever seen
A child grow into a man?
Have you ever known
Such pain?

As he grows
A leader
A fighter
In the end
Pierce the sky!

Your voice reminds me a little bit of Chad Kroeger's which is awesome!
