Three Distinct Planets
"Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence." - Robert Fripp We stand on the edge of national metamorphosis armed with hope and lengthy dreams, and the desire to leave the mistakes of the past far, far behind us.  Some wake to a blessed plague of amnesia hoping never to recover the damage that was done. Some keep marching forward feeling the heavy ache of everything they wish to change about themselves and our nation dragging behind them like a long, prolonged shadow.

I hear you get your idea's for your artwork and music from your dreams ( I think this is the right Otep.. I hope so haha) I do the same. I have weird ,creepy dreams and every morning I would rather starve from not having breakfast and draw my dream's out. You see I want to be a comic book artist and concept artist but yeah.. I have some fucked up dreams dude! Thank you for reading my comment :)

Just wanted to leave a message saying you're a huge inspiration to me and most likely many more! Even though hearing about you breaking up saddens me quite a lot, I understand the situation, and hope to see you come back in the future some day to write more music and whatnot! 

If not then I hope you make the best of what ever else you choose to do!

Take care!
