    This was a fairly ambitious project for me. I wanted to do a profile about Chrono because he was my favourite part of Chrono Crusade, and when I heard this song the idea for this AMV just kind of clicked for me. I've also been wanting to mess around with effects more, so I ended up using a lot of After Effects to keep the visual theme around the idea of broken glass. I also used Maya for the 3D glass shatters and particle smoke in the intro. Hopefully the story is fairly straightforward, but Chrono is a "devil" who turned his back on his old life. He still struggles with his past but he has some help along the way...

    Lyrics:
    A long day alone
    The emptiness is so real
    Never having peace of mind
    Running from what I can't see
    And there is nowhere left to hide
    Turn and face these empty eyes
    All alone, heart untold, trying to find

    Break me down, replace this fear inside
    Take this nothingness from me
    I want to find, I want to shine, I want to rise
    Break me down

    I try to find myself
    I find the stranger trapped inside
    And I take one more step away
    From a face I used to recognize
    Familiar shadows closing in
    A suffocating fear descends
    It comes alive, uncovered eyes, trying to find

    Break me down, replace this fear inside
    Take this nothingness from me
    I want to find, I want to shine, I want to rise
    Break me down

    Replace this fear inside
    Take this nothingness from me
    I want to find, I want to shine, I want to rise
    Break me down
