0:00 - 3:40 "Silently Smolder"
A young and molten earth yearns for company.
3:40 - 6:25 "Cambrian Explosion"
Company arrives in the form of increasingly violent lifeforms.
6:25 - 8:39 "From Your Caves, Emerge!"
Humanity reaches its current point in evolution, and looks up at the stars for the first time in wonder.
8:39 - 10:53 "Outward"
Humanity invents agriculture, and from this point onward, builds increasingly vast civilizations.
10:53 - 14:26 "Inward"
Humanity runs out of room as the Dark Ages hit. However, the renaissance has other ideas.
14:26 - 17:49 "Upward"
Humanity reaches the moon. The Earth realizes that the company she has come to love and cherish is not permanent, and sings a song of farewell to her favorite children. (Unfortunately, I am not a woman, so please make do with my voice instead.)
Wow. What can I even say about this other than, "Thank god it's finally over"? I've been working on this song since October 15th, and it is without question the finest piece of music I have ever composed. I'm almost reluctant to press "submit" because I've become so addicted to working on it.
But if I made it much longer, the filesize limit on this format would positively DEVASTATE my pride and joy.
I'll post a link to the uncompressed render in the comments for the stream.
If this was the last song I ever wrote, I can't say I wouldn't be satisfied. At a time closer to the present than I'd like to admit, I considered the idea of writing one final towering work as a capstone of my ability, and then ending my life, in so doing, leaving a musical suicide note.
This is what my suicide note would have been.
Of course, thanks to Loon (to whom this song is dedicated), I no longer have even fleeting thoughts like these. And, to be honest, this song is far more inspired than anything I could have written in a hopeless state.
Thank you for reading my ramblings, and I hope you love it as much as I loved writing it.
