My second AIM 2020 submission. A collaboration I did with the awesome Ian Martyn, whom I got to know when I realized he had covered one of my prog songs. xD Loosely inspired by this wonderful piece of art by MrOhYee:


LYRICS:

[verse 1]

You have the skill

Pure imagination

To dream up other cosmoi

Worlds away


You know the drill

Trust your destination

To find the cause and

Choose your way


[chorus]

Hey, Karolyn, remember who you are

Rushin' headfirst to the stars

Don't break the eternal chain

And keep the dreams for which you aim


[verse 2]

New days have broken

Love is your chainmail

Where all your funny feelings

Seize the while


Those lost in slogans

Who live by failure

Those who stopped believing

Make them smile


[chorus]

Hey, Karolyn, remember who you are

Rushin' headfirst to the stars

Don't break the eternal chain

And keep the dreams for which you aim


[synth solo]


[bridge]

Shades of gray

In this neon night

Wings of bliss have never felt so light


Since today

Sprites of time unite

Find the peace within and hold it tight


[chorus]

Hey, Karolyn, remember who you are

Rushin' headfirst to the stars


[guitar solo]


Hey, Karolyn, remember who you are

Rushin' headfirst to the stars

Don't break the eternal chain

And keep the dreams for which you aim

Yeah!
Nice style. Like an intro in old TV-cartoons. Liked it!

CzySzy responds:

Thanks again. I'm glad you like it. The cartoony vibe was exactly what I was going for.

It is a feel good piece and I appreciate that.

I am honored by this ^^
It's a very solid piece of music

I don't understand why this is rated 3.5/5. This is great. Everything from the lyrics to the guitar solo is fantastic. I wouldn't be surprised to see this in the top 3. Great work and good luck!

CzySzy responds:

I have a hunch somebody with a high EXP level rated this 0 stars.
