This is an odd work for me to showcase. These songs were written nearly a decade ago and harken back to nearly a decade before that - I was a curious child/teen that found it intriguing to take my ego to extremes.
Hence the particularity of, "I am Everything" being the start of all things in, my ego allowed me to believe there was nothing I couldn't do. There is a progressive crawl - peaks and descents, laying out very clearly, or at least what I would consider to be very clearly, the journey I had over those years.
The entire work wrapping up with something as poignant as, "I am Nothing", again clearly pointing out the fact that in the beginning I was unstoppable, now? Not exactly that way.
There isn't a sense of regret, per se, for all of the things I did in adolesence, I appreciate those moments and oppurtunities to grow as a human being. I am also not incredibly proud of the things I put into my body, I do not believe it gives me any form of bragging rights. If anything, while I do look at these experiences as an oppurtunity to grow, I also look at them as oppurtunities to overwhelmingly destroy my entire being.
