An R&B interpretation of the Minecraft OST's "Mutation." I wanted to bring attention to the End Poem which scrolls after smiting the Ender Dragon. In its ambiguity, the poem alludes to life and emulations of life ("dreams," "the long dream," "yet he still plays the game"). Whether it be a dream, a game, or any emulation of life which gives us humans more of a sense of capability, we are capable of similarly huge feats in real life. A neat poem about how videogames and reality coincide in teaching us life's lessons - starting out not knowing what to do, limping through progress, and beginning a new endeavor following achievement. The potential of the multidemensional human being is incredible. We can dream big, but only dreaming will never get us there - gotta wake up.
Take a breath now. Take another. Just like the beginning when you left your mother:
Fresh air filling your lungs, unintelligible, speaking in tongues. Like Mother Nature's other daughters & sons,
We all start somewhere - gotta take our first step into a world so vast, so wide for which we ain't prepped.
Time's a-wasting so give it your all; won't be long before now until night falls.
Go on, take a look at that pretty horizon; nothing but opportunity where the trees meet the skies
and you're left there wondering how to spend your time - either keep it simple stupid or level up and grind.
It's your life . . . your dreams, your future; even though along the way you might need a few sutures.
That's the way of the game - either let it pass by or follow your heart to live before you die.
Credits rolling - think your journey is over? Nah fam, you just stumbled on a treasure trove.
Understand things ain't what you think they be - they ain't what you hear, they ain't what you see.
Time to get acclimated to this new level; grab a chair 'cause there be so much to know and to revel.
Nab this new opportunity to figure yourself out. This path in life you takin'? Well, it's time for a new route.
You're not alone (you're not alone, not alone) You were always known (you were always known, always known)
You are loved (yeah you are loved, so much loved) Give yourself a shove (c'mon dive into this world, this dream this life - fly like a dove)
Player, your heart's a dynamo. You are stronger than you know.
It's time to leave your mark. Be the light among the dark.
Time to write your story of faith and hope and life and love - of failure and of glory.
To make this world what you want, gotta give it a little shakeup.
Only dreaming will never get you there, so come on player -
