So I have this song called The Villain, I think its my darkest song yet. It probably doesn’t sound dark but the ideas it was based on are definitely “deep.” Basically I sometimes feel like nothing. Like my life is over and I feel like “this is it for me.” If you have never had this feeling it is depressing to say the least. I’ve always been ambitious, like to the extreme but I never found that calling, that purpose. Until I started writing songs that is.
Anyways, The Villain is about having abilities, potential, talents, dreams, and aspirations but not doing a damn thing with them. Its always bothered me seeing people just live out their lives with no drive, or no will to attain anything beyond just, what is. You know who I’m talking about, people who cant see past their current week or month or people who just don’t want to be any kind of better.
See when I’m not moving foreword I feel pretty bad. I know a lot of other people feel bad all the time and never know why. There’s so much more we as people can do, there’s so much more we can be and there’s so much more we can give.
So in The Villain I’m basically saying how could I have ended up having done nothing, when I could have been good at everything? It feels like I’m the bad guy in my own story, the villain and I could have been the hero. But even if I have lost or wasted time and I am the villain in my own story I’ll be proud of it. I’ll be proud and do whatever I’m doing with confidence and conviction no matter what anyone thinks of me and that’s how it should be.
