Bleh, I was getting tired of working on this one. I needed a break from neo-classical so I wrote this metal monstrosity as a distraction.

That bass guitar interlude into the major, happy sections later on really needs to be changed, but I don't know what to put in its place.

The basic idea is that after you die, you become worm-food. So, the sad opening is like ringing the dinner bell for the king of worms to dine on something new. The happy, sappy ending that fades out was meant to offset the sad feel of the opening, since death is one of those things that you can be sad but happy about. Ultimately, death is a process that keeps the earth alive.

  • Laughter! I like it! Thanks for your response, Tombo.
