Creative Brief

Marked as finished - please pm me if you are working on a spinoff :)

So now on a completely different note than the phone pun breakup song I put out yesterday, I wanted to also share this. I kind of feel like this is the song I've been trying to write for years now; and it's very different from my usual style. I just did a scratch recording with piano and first-run vocals. As usual, if you do feel inspired to make music for the vocals or whatever, then go for it & I'll give you a spinoff collab. If not, then that's cool too. I hope you enjoy listening to the song. :)

verse 1:

freedom found me in the dark

in the rubble of my heart

still beating

barely breathing

there were others like me there

with cold hands

and all their stares were empty, 

frozen, looking back

I tried to shake them all awake

but freedom told me

you can't take 

anybody with you if you go



so I followed freedom

where you have to go alone

he broke my heart

and broke my chains

and said

it's time to go

while you're still breathing

while your heart is still beating

find out if you're alive

I followed freedom

oh, I followed freedom

and I left the rest behind


verse 2:

thought I knew him well by now

but whenever freedom turns around

I find myself

facing all my fears

every day I make a choice:

say something,

or lose my voice

in crowds that think and act and look the same

it doesn't have to be this way

if you really wanna stay

all you gotta do is close your eyes

but I can't anymore

not while I'm still alive




oh, when people that once knew you

say they don't know who you are

keep following freedom

and they'll say you've gone too far

then i felt completely alone

for the first time

and that night

I realized I was free


modified chorus:

I follow freedom

I don't know where he'll go

and it's the hardest thing

you have to do alone

but while you're still breathing

while your heart is still beating

find out if you're alive

I follow freedom

Oh, I follow freedom

I know I'm alive


I'm alive
