I have a bunch of song ideas that I drafted a couple of years back, and am finally getting back to fleshing them out and putting lyrics vocals to them. Only problem is, I kind of forgot where I was mentally, so I'm not quite sure of what to write. This one was one of my favorites, and suggestions for theme ideas?

Odd sort of crossover point between The Police (I'm thinking Every Breath You Take) and Sleater-Kinney, there. Seems thematically wide open, really.

After listening to this and reading your intro, I think I have a great theme for this piece:

"I don't know where I am, and I don't care"

The music evokes the feeling of being somewhere active and exciting, but perhaps not familiar.

Whilst typing this, and relistening, I also think maybe a slight retool to:

"I don't know who you are, and I don't care".

Anyway, mystery, and no desire to remove the mystery. Not apathy, exactly, but just being okay with not knowing. I'm here, I don't know you, but I'm okay with that, and I'm glad... we'll figure it out later.

Thanks, Ynoxas. That's awesome. I'll give you a song credit if I can develop that idea out.
