about

Artem Bank Baltimore

I am a freelance composer and producer that is based in Baltimore, Maryland. Though I'm still young and new to the scene, I like to think that I've at least made a small and growing mark in history as a composer for video games. My first soundtrack, Star Ruler, was a chance encounter that left me wanting to do more, and ultimately decided my entire career in music from there. ... more

Track Name: Artem Bank; Adam Willem - Halfway There
What am I to do?
I've tried so hard to get through,
But every time I enter,
They tell me I'm no good.
I am just a man,
Well, no, I'm a puppet,
But that shouldn't be the reason,
For them not to accept.

I've poured my soul into every movie,
My heart breaks with every film,
Just give me a chance to show what I can do.

This festival's little racist,
Who's the one without a soul again?
They make me feel like I'm only halfway there.

(He wallows with every moment.)
What?
(Dreams shatter before his eyes.)
Seriously?
I can't even sing my own sad song.
(He can't even sing his own sad song.)

The fabric of my world is ripping.
(Faaaaabrriiiiiccc.)
(He should probably kill himself,
cause lord knows it's pretty weird to have a puppet that's alive!)
Woah, man, I think you're crossing a line here!

I'll never make it into Halfway There.
(He'll never make it into Halfway There.)
I'll never be one of the cool kids.
(There was never a chance for that anyway.)
I'll never make it into Halfway There.
(He'll never make it into Halfway There.)
I'll never show my soul to the world.
(Already established you don't have one!)

I'll never make it in to halfway there.
