You are here alone again,
In your sweet insanity.
All too calm, you hide yourself from reality.
Do you call it solitude? Do you call it liberty?
When all the world turns away to leave you lonely.

The fields are filled with desires,
All voices crying for freedom.
But all in vain they will fade away...
There's only you to answer you, forever.

In blinded mind you are singing,
A glorious hallelujah.
The distant flutter of angels,
They're all too far, too far to reach for you.

I am here alone again,
In my sweet serenity,
Hoping you will never find me in any place.
I will call it solitude, when all my songs fade in vain,
In my voice, far away to eternity...

::In-depth analysis
I love to sketch and draw, despite having no real talent for it. I usually use pencil. As awesome as I think charcoal is, charcoal doesn't find me very awesome. It doesn't cooperated, per se. The visual art that I'm more proficient in is painting, though I'm no Picasso. XD I play the violin and the guitar (acoustic/electric). Violin for eight years, guitar for seven lax years, and two serious years. I'm determined to get an electric violin. XD In terms of my favorite music genres, I like classical, jazz, progressive rock/metal, and power metal. Plus music from animes and video games. Yoko Kanno is a genius. My other favorite composers are: Koji Kondo, Jun Senoue, Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, Yuki Kajiura, Toshihiko Sahashi, Grieg, Beethoven, Ravel, Shostakovich, Sibelius, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, and Mozart.

But they're not worth their time in tears

In the warmth of my fears"
