Pushed out of my own life
Canít see the ground below my eyes
Hidden by the shadowed tower
I look up yet see nothing in the sky
When will I see that itís on me?
I dream but I donít act like Iím free
When will I learn that itís not you
I just need to shake the silence
Crowds, they move all around me
Reach on out, blend right in
Pretend to fight, cast it aside
Welcome yourself back to the world
I got a call from my boss saying, there is an important meeting coming up, that i have to be bright and early for. I wake up to the sound of the 6am alarm, to make sure i don't fall behind. Everything's going smoothly, right until rush hour. I scramble, trying to get through the hoards of people so i can at least get to work on time, however it's inevitable. Feeling as if i have no obligation, i phone work, and say in a deep trembly voice "I'm sorry, but i'm going to be late"...
I did 2 sections each in the style of techno/trance with lots of acid elements. The key difference is the second section is super melodic and atmospheric. Had fun with this, hope you do too!
Shoulder to shoulder, nudge through the gridlock
Around the corner, there goes a gift shop
A simple tourist life is a pit stop
Between the airports, hotels, a mishmosh
At every city block is a fantasy
In every door, a thing that you have to see
The bopping crowd swarms past, much humanity
You make your righteous path, it will set you free
One in a crowd, alone with your hopes and dreams
You stand apart, and walk forth without a team
Branching aside, a goal that belongs to you
Away from the mass, your light always shining through
Amidst the bustle, you spot a treasure
A happy place awaits for your pleasure
It's on the other side of the people
You go along, a thread through a needle
