BREATHE by PacificaArts BREATHE by PacificaArts
Alphonse Elric of FullMetal Alchemist

"This is surrender
To a war-torn life I've lived.
Scars and stripes forever
In need of change I can't resist.

This long of a struggle
Finally opened up my eyes.
Revolution's not easy
With a Civil War on the inside.

No need to hide anything anymore.
Can't return to who I was before.

I can finally breathe.
Suddenly alive.
I can finally move.
'Cause I realize.

I can finally breathe.
Suddenly alive.
I can finally move.
The world feels revived!"

'Breathe' - Anberlin

4 hrs.
Micron pens, Prismacolor markers & acrylic paint on Bristol.

I heard the song at first and knew it reminded me of something - so I thought up every movie or TV show character that had a meaningful impact on me. Alphonse, of course. He was truly freed from the torture of never feeling rest or the warmth of his brother or friends, freed for the fear that he might be artificial.

But too bad it was only true in the movie. *twitch*

Although...he ought never have had the fear of building his own kingdom of cute girls - it was always possible, armor or not. :giggle: Al's quite a winning character, isn't he?

'Breathe' was prejudged to be a lyrically weak song, but I thought otherwise. :shakefist:

same for me, it reminded me of cute little Al~ ^^ he was finally free again,

WAIT WHAT?! he doesnt get his body back in the manga? :< lol im reading the manga right now XD its so much different from the anime 0.o

true ^^ cause Al is cute even when he doesnt have his body, cause of his awesomely awesome personality, but when he gets his body back, hes even cuter! >3<

well the people who said that didnt look deep enough into the song, anberlin has some songs that would make no sense to anyone by sinply reading or listening to the lyrics, but you have to look into them to figure some out

Well, not yet, no. Al's still in his armor. I won't spoil it for you, but you DO get a small glipse of him as a human in the manga. I think Arakawa-sensei is going to drag it as far as she can, but for me, it's getting tiresome and she's taken more that her fair share in my art box already. :shrug:

And as for Anberlin, I belong to a Switchfoot forum community (which has a large number of Anberlin fans in it). I told them what I thought of 'Breathe' and backed it up with what it reminded me of. Regardless of referencing Al as an indivicual character, it does have in an intense meaning for those who were, "lost, but now am/are found". It's so peculiar how the members are 'fans', but never bother to really listen to the lyrics of either band except for the sake of repeating them word-for-word at a concert. :blahblah: So useless! Where's the application? Songs are expressions of emotion, so why not learn from them?

I guess that's an art too, huh? Too much to ask. :sarcasm: /rant
Anyhow, I'm glad you noticed the same as I. I love songs with simple and understandable meanings. I hope you enjoy the manga, it's looooooong!

yeah i already got to that part, he was just skin and bone o.o, wait shes still making? the manga, i thought she finished... but then again im slow at things XD

wait im sorry but i didnt get that XD do you mean shes adding in stuff just for the sake of there being something when you say "it's getting tiresome and she's taken more that her fair share in my art box already"?

true when you listen to a song its not there just for entertainment [although that is a part of it] but its there to give a message, well technically a hidden message XD, i guess kinda like TV, its entertaining to watch but theres also a hidden message in each show ;p

i like song where you have to look really deep into them to figure them out ^^ its fun to me ;3 im pretty far in the manga, im at chapter 62 i think?
