How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed ‘till the end

The only thing that counts is the prosperity of today
Most important to us is that our bills get paid

Our good intentions have always been delayed

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed ‘till the end
When we will stand in front of heaven’s gate,
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you’ve learned
Try to listen to your heart
No, we can’t understand the universe
By just using our minds
We are so afraid of all the things unknown

A must we appease is the lust to get laid
Nothing really matters, just devouring our prey

Our good intentions have always been delayed, so
Our generous acts have always come too late

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed ‘till the end
When we will stand in front of heaven’s gate,
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you’ve learned
Try to listen to your heart
No, we can’t understand the universe
By just using our minds
We are so afraid of all the things unknown
We just flee into a dream that never comes true

Low to the ground, we feel safe
Low to the ground, we feel brave

Oblivisci tempta quod didiscisti

Open your eyes, we’re not in paradise
How can’t you see, this stress is killing me!
Fulfil your dreams, life is not what it seems to be
We have captured time
So time made us all hostages without mercy

Seemingly generous fooling ourselves
Selfishly venomous time tells

Too much thinking goes at the cost of all our intuition
Our thoughts create reality
But we neglect to be!
So we’re already slaves of our artificial world
We shouldn’t try to control life
But listen to the laws of nature

Open your eyes, we’re not in paradise
How can’t you see, this stress is killing me!
Fulfil your dreams, life is not what it seems to be
We have captured time
So time made us all hostages without mercy

Low to the ground, we feel safe
Low to the ground, we feel brave

We all think we’re generous
But we only fool ourselves
The only thing that matters is
Our way and our vision

Selfishly we’re venomous
But you know the time tells us
There is more to life than our
Higher positions, race for perfection
Better, faster
We must return to the laws of the nature
Free ourselves from madness!

Consign To Oblivion - Epica [link]

~~~~~~


Well I'd decided recently I was going to upload some pencil art. But I had this old favourite song sitting unloved in my library, and when I finally learned the lyrics I needed to draw to them. :D

Anyways. I'm quite happy with this, though it doesn't have quite the effect I'd hoped for XD. The concept was simple enough, but the atmosphere was difficult to create. I still like the eclipse thing, though~
Enjoy the weirdness, anyways XD
Oh, and that tower in the background is based on an actual tower. :P

Time taken: About 6-7 hours. I dunno, I got distracted XD
Layers: 11
Other music inspiration: [link]

I streamed a little of this and :iconpat-the-kitsune: watched. Much fun was had >3

Artwork (c) Me
Invader Zim (c) Jhonen
Lyrics (c) Epica
Tower (c) ...Umm... WESTFIELD. XD

Welcome :meow:

Maybe an eclipse unleashes some kind of monster once every millennia and Zim can sense its presence :plotting:

Did I? Really? :iconawwwplz:

Heh maybe reading on some Aztec lore (or was it Mayan) gave me the idea since it is said that the gates of the netherworld open :XD:

No, sorry ^^; I had that part of the story already, and I have an idea of what to write next, I'm just too unmotivated to write. Can't seem to get anything down that I'm happy with. :shrug: I'll pick it up as soon as I can get my brain into gear though, I hate to keep you waiting so long :(. School started today, so it can only get worse or better XD

Oh, sounds good :eager:

Hmm, I shall look!

Yep. Art's no fun once it becomes a task D:
Unless it's an exciting task, I guess.
