The Creator – Adam's Request

Hey ya'll! Yesterday I reached out and asked for inspiration to write a few new songs. As always, you showed up and delivered! Yesterday I was very inspired by Adam's request...

This is actually a topic I've been thinking about a lot lately. I think it's beautiful how the entire world has turned to content creators and art to get them through this time of frustration and sorrow. But I also believe that we have an opportunity to show our worth right now. Content creators and artists aren't valued the way that we should be for the value that we provide. It's honestly extremely annoying and as much as people say they don't need us in comparison to other professions, this world epidemic is proving that they do. So it may not be exactly what Adam had in mind when he suggested I write this song, but I hope ya'll enjoy it and can relate! This may be the cheesiest song I've ever written and it's a bit rough but I just had to share it with you. Let me know what you think. 😅

xoxo – Ry

The Creator by Riley Q – 04/14/2020

Before the world went down in flames

Money ruled and we played its game

If you had a degree than you deserved it

And if you didn’t well then you were worthless

Do it for free or just for exposure

But now the world is ending and you’re losing composure

I guess we’re more important than you thought we were

So have some respect for the creator

You should’ve thought of how bored you'd be

Without your favorite show to binge on TV

And all of the people who are fun & creative

We have nothing to say until we hear a big thank ya

(and stop saying)

Do it for free or just for exposure

But now the world is ending and you’re losing composure

I guess we’re more important than you thought we were

So have some respect for the creator

So now you like my music, isn't it comforting?

And expressing yourself ya it’s pretty important?

All of those books & watching tv, now it’s a real job,

I’m glad that you see

So when the new normal comes out of the woods

I hope you remember the way that we should

Be treated and paid and fairly commended

Cuz we got you through the great epidemic

(and we won’t)

Do it for free or just for exposure

But now the world is ending and you’re losing composure

I guess we’re more important than you thought we were

So have some respect for the creator
