“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”
LIMITLESS deals with the belief of change. The idea that a person can change their world from a world of darkness and hate to a world of endless possibilities. The piece is broken up into three sections: the idea, the belief, the reality.
As the piece progresses the intensity and complexity grows as the idea becomes real.
The idea: the listener seeks change but is continues to look for ways to grasp what they need.
The Belief: The listener realizes that the change is bigger than them, so they seek help from a bigger power and discovers more.
The Reality: The change is here. The hatred of the world continues to fight back but the listener continues to change the world and eventually brings new hope into a lost world.
