    I received a message back in the beginning of 2015 asking if I'd be interested in working together on a song. Almost exactly a year later, I've made a new friend and together we've produced a track. DecodingTheCodes wrote the lyrics, arrangement, vocal melodies and performed the role of artistic director. I played the instruments and recorded it all. He has asked me to include the following message.

    --------------
    I know I haven't been as great of a person as I am and should have been around the Internet - I've been spewing a lot of mean things about the fandom, to those that recognize me. I just wanted to say sorry, as, at times, more often than I'd like, I've let my judgement get the better of me. I still meant most of what I've said, but how I said them, how I pushed away all considerations of empathy and respect, how I let my anger blind me into saying what I said the way I said them, was wrong. And I apologize for that.

    I know sorry's not gonna cut it, but I'd just like to say that, even if this fandom has had some flaws, I still thank it for everything it has done for me. I've met a lot of good people - people that have went out of their way to shape who I am, and to help me become who I am today, and who I can become. Those people are a big part of my life, and, even though I know they deserve more, I'd like to dedicate this song to them.

    To those that are taking the time to read this, thank you.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Lyrics:
    ~Verse 1~
    The world is mean and cruel
    And takes everyone around it as a fool
    It condescends a man
    And causes damage every time it can

    It'll never face the fact
    It denies that it's nothing without
    Empathy and soul
    You'd only fail if you let it know

    ~Pre-Chorus 1~
    But even though you're beaten down and ostracized
    You still manage to bring light to our dark lives

    ~Chorus~
    'Cause even if the world around you falls apart
    The passion keeps you strong still burns there in your heart
    The feelings that you give with what you could create
    It dissipates and diminishes hate

    I could name a thousand times when you were in the wrong
    But I'd name a million more when you made me strong
    A tight-nit bond of guidance courses through my veins
    You show that living life is not in vain
    You overwhelm my pain

    ~Verse 2~
    It's never satisfied
    In darkening people's lives
    It always finds a way
    To throw away the love and care you gave

    The world's a lion's den
    But now I know that it could mend
    Your smiles make me see
    The future of what everything could be

    ~Pre-Chorus 2~
    And so you stay strong despite the trials you face
    And it seems like there's nothing that this world can do

    ~Bridge~
    When every person here just makes you frown
    Remember you've no reason to feel down
    For after all, you fill with joy those around you
    And every single word you speak is true Show less
