THE STORY OF THE SONG
The lyrics of this song focus on the protagonist’s fear of ending up as “the one who didn’t” accomplish anything or amount to anything in their life. It’s a real, existential fear most people wrestle with.
One of the song’s themes is the echoing of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, which has the famous 4-note motif. That famous 4-note motif is a metaphor for life knocking on your door, and asking what you are doing with your life.
This version of the song is a second release of it. I released this song two years ago. This version of the song is much better produced, has a better music video, and a better vocal performance.
THE SONG’S ROCK STYLE
This song is done with a mix of heavy rock and classical elements. The vocal performance is in your face and intense. It’s similar to another recent release of mine, which is a frustrated rock song called Hitting Air.
