In an age when video games are more prominent than ever, this piece is a testament to their value as works of art. Using Journey’s melodies of hope, wonder, and perseverance, the arrangement conveys the necessity of exploring imaginary worlds in order to more fully understand our own flawed reality.
Morning light illuminates the path; my eyes drink in the quiet splendor.
Though I feel no calming rays, I am immersed in tranquility.
When the wind rushes toward my face, I flinch as if struck by its hand.
Yet never have I set a foot in that place of serenity.
But cannot life be truly told within the stories I behold?
What is their cause, if not my heart to grow?
The world bears the darkness of souls and the lightness of being.
Yet why should I fear that which holds such beauty?
The sphere of my existence widens each day in awe,
Deepened by views of worlds that never were, yet ever, ever are.
