  • This song descibes my whole mindset

  • We are all being socially engineered by media, politics and the super wealthy (Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Gates, UN, world economic fourm ect). We have no control when we allow ourselves to be manipulated, because we are programmed to dismiss things as "crazy conspiracy theories", even though there is documentation of the plans and agenda's for humanity (government documents and foundation documents and UN documents). They manipulate us into feeling helpless and like we have no control, but we do have control and all we have to do is recognize the manipulation tactics and say no. We have the power, that is why they are censoring people that say anything about what is going on, anything against the narrative. Because they can't have us informed and disobedient, they need us in ignorance, so that they maintain control. They are building a total surveillance control grid all around us and if we sit back and allow it, it will be the end of all human freedoms as we know it. Read UN agenda 21.

  • Sometimes it feels like it's better to let things be just going on.... It really sucks to do not have the courage and persistence to keep going and pursue things you wanna do. It just feels like SAME DAY SAME THOUGHTS repeating over and over like a broken record and spending days just like a Prisoner...... 😖😖

  • I was really lost and really depressed when I found this song. I was so so desperate and felt so alone, like no one understood what I was going through. But I listened to this song and I immediately felt so much better. Because I wasn’t actually alone. Someone was going through exactly what I was. Thank you Alec, for speaking out about how you felt and making this song so I didn’t feel so alone. This song saved me. It made me realize that if someone else has struggled with the exact same feelings and overcame them made me more confident that I could overcome this feeling too. Keep singing Alec.

  • Alec, when i listen to your songs it is like stories of a very introvert person. U add lots of biblical and historical refrences to ur songs. I like the way you communicate ur hardships via songs. It seems like u've been thru a lot. Nice work though.

  • Sometimes we forget that someone’s writing and and have to come up with this stuff and it’s not that hard as it looks I love his music because it always can relate to someone in this world and you can kind of get a feeling of what they’re feeling and put yourself in their shoes for a minute or two that’s why I love his music

  • Free will is indeed an illusion. You can't choose the thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions that appear in consciousness. You aren't behind your eyes. The sense that you are located behind your eyes is yet another appearance in consciousness. "You" are simply the fact of awareness in each passing moment.
