An allegorical chiptune track for pixelday 2018.

Lyrics:

a person must be strong
in outer space
because nobody’s there
to help you

while floating all alone
in outer space
you really start to learn
what makes you strong

whoa

whirr click press release
whirr click press repeat
whirr click task complete
whirr click task repeat

It gets awfully dark
in outer space
where the radiation from the sun
will make you sick

and it gets awfully cold
in outer space
2.7 on the kelvin scale
will freeze you stiff

if you want to live
in outer space
you must learn to count on
machines every day

and when you go to live
in outer space
you must leave behind
the ones you love

whoa

but your driven by the mission to explore
all the work which must be done is your own
sometimes you must fall upon your sword
to discover beauty of the worlds unknown

whirr click press release
whirr click press repeat
whirr click task complete
whirr click task repeat

Not everyone can live
in outer space
one out of 16.5 million people
can make it there

and the path that one must take
to outer space
will be fraught with work, frustration
and likely failure

but if you’d like to try
to get to outer space
your feet may never leave the land
but your eyes will fill with stars

if you try to touch the sky
of outer space
you’ll feel nothing in your hands
but it will fill your heart

whoa

but your driven by the mission to explore
all the work which must be done is your own
sometimes you must fall upon your sword
to discover beauty of the worlds unknown

cool

In the beginning it was like going back to Zelda all over again, but then... evolving into something completely different there! :D A real song, with clever lyrics, melody, energy, a somewhat toned down and hard-to-hear vocaloid song sometimes but... it really flows with the instruments too. Love the melody, but for hearability: think the voice is a bit low.

-cd-

This is amazing haha. It's like GLaDOS is back again :D

whoa

The chords aren't really complex, but the melody make them sound completely unique. Great job.

I'm not sure if I can say anything that hasn't already been said. This is so unique and great! I adore all the melodies and chords, and the lyrics fit so nicely. Happy (slightly late) Pixel Day, and nice job on the Front Page!
