Thewaytimmoves posted the original instrumental which is amazing, so I had to remix it. My vocals are just meant to give you an idea of what I’m looking for in the melody. What I need now is more vocals. I would love to have a whole chorus of people singing the melody in unison throughout the entire song. Feel free to add some harmony too, especially on the bridge (“We stand tall . . .”). The music is not fully mixed yet because I wanted to get this going with your help.
Also, if there are any violin players out there, I would absolutely love to hear what you can add. I’m thinking quick staccato bursts.
On and on and on
Staring down the sun we stand alone
Our mothers knew this day would come
Arm in arm in arm we’re leaving home
We’re free to make our own mistakes
Free to name the price we pay
Careful not to fall apart
Kicking down the walls we made with gold
And this time we know just who we are
Everything is ours, we own the world
Taking back the things we lost
Building bridges never crossed
We stand tall
We stand proud
We stand together
And nothing can stand in our way or make us stand down
We’re out to save the world
Arm in arm in arm we find our home
And I am no longer afraid
‘Cause nothing can stand in my way
A fun instrumental song of mine that includes harmonica and acoustic guitar. I am looking for someone that would like to put their own vocals over it. DO IT!!!
i made this sign to remind everyone, including myself not to check out from your life and become an empty shell. It is easy to do when things get messed up. Be present in reality and know the things you have control of. Also don't be affraid to stand up in the name of love and positive change :)

and it is going in the re: independence collab!
tania c - this is an a-m-a-z-i-n-g shot!!
When no one seems to notice you, does it really matter? What goes on in their heads. People are just people. Their voices. just voices. You, yourself are in your presence. You have you. Somebody will betray you. But you have you. You have always had you. Your anatomy and mind work as one. In perfect time. You are the only one. You are keeping your heart beating in such a rhythm. No one else will send your blood through your veins. You have you. And you will do it for you. You rely on yourself to keep going. Keep the blood flowing and thoughts will reoccur.
You have grown un-aware to yourself.
You do not appreciate yourself.
You have damaged yourself.
But you still have you.
And you will always have you.
You have forgotten. Of how it was When you were An infant.
Amazement occurred when you realized that your finger moves when you want it too.
You have forgotten marvel.
You have forgotten pain.
Can you see yourself at this time? Tell your eyes to open, and they will. To see yourself clearly. To see. that you are beautiful.
This is a short film/stop animation I made with the help of my friend. I think it would be really cool if someone contributed some sort of voice over. I originally intended it to be for the Love collab but I think it works for Independence as well. It's about a lonely, shy girl who finds her strengths in her imagination and throws herself into her writing (thus the paper girl made of words) but she's still lonely, and then she meets someone else like her. I guess it's about love as a connection of imagination, meeting someone on a more abstract level. Anyway, whatever your interpretation, have at it! I've spent several days on this and I need a break.
