Musical Inspiration

So, yesterday I was just wishing away the time online because I had "nothing better to do", and I stumbled upon this video (click plz!), and it made my mind flourish in a creative explosion (not to mention it's freaking AMAZING!). Since I had the idea for the distopic-ish, Hebrew apocalypse-ish, yadda, yadda, yadda, I haven't had a clue on what more to do with it. I'd written some stuff here and there, but I haven't had any solid idea on where they are, who the main antagonist is, what the Hebrew people are going to be forced to do, and if there's going to be an actual war yet. But this video helped me get a hold on some of the unknown questions. With help from various sources on the Internet, I have come up with an applicable characters and (somewhat) story line for the lyrics to this video (you're going to have to click on it eventually...):

Evil Antagonist that-yet-needs-to-be-named:
What cause have I to feel glad?
I've built my life on judgement and causing pain
I don't know those eyes I see in the bloodstained chrome

Sarai:
Now everything that I've had and everything I've known have been thrown away
And with time I've come to find this isn't my home

Abram, Sarai, Evil Antagonist:
I've stoked the fire,
seen more pain that you can know
The tears of the broken have washed away my soul
Pushed by desire to change the way my stream will flow,
now I've awoken,
and I'm taking back control

Sarai:
I tried my best to block out the screams,
but they're haunting me in my dreams
Please break my shackles,
I want it to stop

Abram:
I man these wretched machines
Day in, day out, the grinding wears on my brain
Undermining my sanity,
making me question my reality

Sarai:
But life is not as it seems
Should I take a chance of freedom and throw it all down the drain?
I've been imprisoned!
Please burn my transgressions away.

Abram, Sarai, Evil Antagonist:
I've stoked the fire,
seen more pain that you can know
The tears of the broken have washed away my soul
Pushed by desire to change the way my stream will flow,
now I've awoken,
and I'm taking back control

Sarai:
I tried my best to block out the screams,
but they're haunting me in my dreams
Please break my shackles,
I want it to stop

<electronic solo> (probably some cool fighting montage)

Abram, Sarai:
I've stoked the fire, seen more pain that you can know
The tears of the broken have washed away my soul
Pushed by desire to change the way my stream will flow,
now I've awoken,
and I'm taking back control

Abram:
I'm sick of hurting,
sick of thinking it's all I do

Evil Antagonist:
I break those around me,
those spared are very few

Abram/Sarai:
But the bright sun is burning,
and my sky shines ever blue
Friendships surround me,
I'm becoming a part of you

Sarai:
I tried my best to block out the screams,
but they're haunting me in my dreams
Please break my shackles,
I want it to stop.

*As a side note, Sarai and Abram (aka Sarah and Abraham in the Old Testament, no corralations here) are the main characters of this story and the Evil Antagonist is the oppressor of the Hebrew people in the future. I think there's going to be a factory where Hebrew "slaves" are suffering and Sarai gets put into one of these places for disobeying a law or something. Abram also gets to work in one of these places too. Like I said, these aren't my final plans yet: I'm still a bit murky on the whole concept right now. This was just a way to organize my thoughts and future plans for now*

Anyway, I'll leave you to the rest of your lives (for now). As always, keep being inspired and music is the best remedy for stress.
