this page is existing permalink for the following question:

when writing the lyrics for music_noteg is missing artifact , did you make a list of what you could say about each letter and then decide which lines to use, or did you come up with the lines/which letters to mention as you went along from start to finish?

neither. i wrote it completely out of order. i switched which letters i mentioned. some of the letters have ties to real people, such as @M_is_Scared. if i wasn't as limited on time i would've made a longer song that went over every letter there was and what they were doing during the situation, maybe that wouldn't fit.

for a measure of how unordered the song is, i think the last line i wrote was the end of the first chorus: "when will the search end so we can go bring them home"
