Reborn Phoenix Bird

The Backstory to My Song "Reborn"

DISCLAIMER

The participation of producers, co-writers, mix engineers, team members, employees, networking partners, business partners, or product affiliates ---> in the creation, dissemination, and/or promotion of this musical work, does not imply indirect or direct endorsement of the content theme, lyrics, title, or backstory explanation by Ryan David Dwyer.

By Continuing to Read You Acknowledge the Above

Gian did an incredible job producing and mixing this. Nailed the beat and bass line, came up with unique vocal layers and the “reborn chant” in the outro. Also, he guided vital melody sculpting! This is about 95% done, though. Due to feedback from non-music players and producers, I’ll be revisiting making the vocals more prominent and also filling out the bridge with a more orchestral vibe.  

Musical Work Theme Context

This song dives deep into a personalized meaning of the legendary Phoenix Bird, who dies and rises again in its own ashes.

 

The lyrics acknowledge disappointment and defeat as one attempts to honestly pursue their True Will and rises again out of failure.

 

Additionally, proactive lyrics provide clues as to how one can encourage themselves to manifest their Individuality despite circumstances. 

Musical Work Lyrics

| Reborn |

 © 2021 Words and Music by Ryan David Dwyer

Coproduced by Gianluca Zanin

 

You go forth to do your will in the world

running into unexpected fate

Reaching the top of a mountain

Just to feel a breeze 

laugh you down, down, down

And your guts spill out for all to see

They just can’t believe your will to be

Sometimes the facts hate sanity

Even your failures make you strong, strong, strong

 

[Chorus]

Good thing you are the phoenix

Go ahead, keep falling on your face

Be reborn in your own ashes

Die and rise again each day

In a beautiful death

 

You stand tall to your show the world who you are

Jumping into your creative space

Nothing can alter or stop you

Because they see your strength 

and are wanting you to win

You win

Yes you do, oh

 

Musical Work Inspiration

My life has been full of disappointments and discouragements in the pursuit of what I really want.

 

This applies to spiritual and material pursuits.

 

Strangely so, the Lord of Life has always led me to the answers I ask, seek, and knock for.

 

And often, these answers are learned in the most unfortunate of situations.

 

However, no-one can take away the memory of experience, examination, and epiphany.

 

I’ve adopted the Phoenix Bird as a symbol of True Individuality, the fundamental freedom we all have of Free Thought, Emotion, Speech, and Choice.

 

The human race is rapidly advancing technological wonders which present the opportunity to express our freedoms in beautiful ways.

 

Yet, politicians, political parties, news organizations, religions, and humanitarian movements often cloak themselves in a universal “good for all” mentality that completely even ignores the very individuals who power these movements.

 

The challenge then is aligning ourselves to friends and associations whom honor our Individuality in a reciprocal respect.

 

As we pursue our Individual Wills, we also are going to be met with resistance by “the collective” which deceptively masquerades as existing for our benefit. 

 

But it will strip you of all sense of autonomy any chance it gets, so as long their leaders can derive benefit.

 

I know you know I tell you the truth.

 

Study Epistemology.

(The study of “how one knows” – the critique of knowledge itself)

 

Study Critical Thinking.

(The ability to discern your own thoughts from those provided to you)

 

Study the Scientific Method.

(The ability to confirm what is true through experimentation and prior knowledge)

 

Real Science requires A/B split testing of data. 

 

When 1 variable is added or removed that exact addition or subtraction must always be counted in the data assessment. 

 

It doesn’t matter how popular someone is or if they’ve written many articles for scientific journals. 

 

Science is NOT a democracy.

 

Facts and the Truth are not whimsical parts of a dramatic play that are voted on by a director.

 

Unless, of course there is a real director.

 

Ask yourself then…

 

Who is directing the plot?

 

The aforementioned topics of Epistemology, Critical Thinking, and Scientific Method are actually proven fields of research that expose false knowledge preventing you from knowing what your own thoughts are.

 

Most of all, study yourself.

 

As I’ve pursued my own Liberty of Thought, Emotion, Speech, and Action my consciousness observes continually these opposing ideas at play:

 

Codependence vs. Dependence

 

Anarchy vs. Independence

 

Collectivism vs. Interdependence

 

When you spend time meditating on the true differences between the above, you quickly discern that they present 2 archetypes of living:

 

Nobodys vs Somebodys

 

Those who crave the reactivity of codependency, anarchy, and collectivism see themselves as “Nobodys” who are part of a hive mind.

 

They cannot rise out of the ashes of circumstances.

 

They desire to bring everyone else down with them as well.

 

They are blind to the true reality.

 

Nevertheless, there are Individuals who Rise From the Ashes because they embrace Dependence, Independence, and Interdependence…

 

…Neither denying their own Individuality or the right of others to experience and exercise their own.

 

As you listen to my song “Reborn”, consider pursuing your own Liberty as I described above.

 

But if you cannot muster up the strength to do that…

 

At the very least…

 

Commit to help others in the world become free from the shackles of the collective hive mind. 

 

If you do that with a heart full of pure purpose, you might even discover your intention cause your Inner Phoenix to Unexpectedly Arise as the Individual it knows itself to be.
