    Unhappy

    I was always indifferent when someone famous died. I didn't think I'd really be very sad about the death of any musician. I don't know them personally.

    ...but then I realized that it seemed as if I did know them personally.

    I feel like the only thing I can give back is to echo her depth of life.

    What music would we make if we were dying? What would the lyrics say? What would it sound like? Would we tell anyone, or let the beauty and authenticity of the music stand on its own?

    Would people hear the music, or just a pleasant noise? Do they listen with their mind, or just their ears?

    Would anyone hear beyond the music?

    -The whole name is definitely a metaphor, but not for one specific thing, it has more of a multi-layered meaning. The tree is a symbol of many things on many levels, but the simplest description would be that WE, as human beings, are trees of eternity, links between earth and sky so to speak (body and consciousness).

    SINKING SHIPS

    To know her is to see
    that nothing is as it seems
    She’ll show her true face when you’re
    stripped of all belief
    Sweet tyrant, laying out the course with what you need
    To send you through the veils
    of Eternity

    Crack me open or I’ll go down
    on this sinking ship, don’t leave
    me to drown
    Still the water bears the sound
    of my eternal plea
    and all I found

    And all I will…

    She calls you with a mirage
    Of what you want to see
    You fall into her arms
    As she shatters all your dreams
    Sweet violence, aimed to crack the shell from which you bleed
    And send you through the tree of Eternity.

    Crack me open or I’ll go down
    on this sinking ship, don’t leave
    me to drown
    Still the water bears the sound
    of my eternal plea
    And all I found

    And all I will…

    Spotify "Discover Weekly" playlist : it's surprisingly spot on *pun intended*

    There is a fine line between being prejudiced against an entire demographic and disagreeing with the way the system works. -asynartetic

    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life

    To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    This girl's performance literally gave me goosebump (and tears). Better than the original
