Creativity Surge

I had the strangest dream last night. I was at Warped Tour with my Dad.This was weird to begin with but to make matters even weirder we had side stage tickets to the Jonas Brothers. Ya, I said the Jonas Brothers. Except, they weren't the Jonas Brothers, but some unnamed, un-existant boy band equivalent. Sometimes in my dreams, my mind associates a name with the image I see, even if the two don't correlate. so after their set, my dad and I wandered back to the entrance and I told my dad I was going to see one more set from a band and then meet up with him. I walked over to the large schedule to see that Relient K was playing twice at the same time on two different stages. I was really confused, but then I saw The Chariot's name and decided to go see them. On the way I passed Every Time I Die on one of the bigger stages. I decided to go check them out. Now this was weird because they weren't actually on stage. Some how, the bottom of the stage was actually empty and they were performing beneath the stage so they were on the same level of a lot of the kids who were trying to slam dance like no-one's business. I ended up only catching one song from them which somehow ended up being a cover of "Stein's Theme" by Project 86. I realized that as awesome as this was this deterred me from my real goal and I ventured on, making sure to take a mental photograph of their burly, manly, and gnarly mustaches. I then thought I saw Jonathan Kindler of The Chariot on the main stage. As I approached I realized it was Anberlin. The weird thing is, they were performing on a stage on a stage. Below the actual stage was a guard rail, a pretty large gap, another guardrail, and more fans. The majority of the fans appeared to be behind this second guardrail. I wasn't alone in this chasm though and some people attempted hopping the first guardrail to get on the first stage. I too attempted this and ended up failing. What was weird about the performance though was that both Christian and Stephen were singing, and for some reason, Joey looked alot like the bald guy from Simple Plan. The song they were playing was also unfamiliar to me, but the chorus was the line "Every decision is coming back to me". I then woke up at 1:00 in the afternoon and figured out the chords and wrote the basic structure of the song. It was probably the weirdest and fastest way I have ever written a song. Now thinking back on I may have actually just ripped off of Say Anything's "People Like You Are Why People Like Me Exist" but it's 1:22 in the AM, I need to study for a Thermodynamics quiz that's at 4 today, and decided that I need to write this down before I forget such a weird occurrence. That's all. Jon out.
