What began as an idea for an instrumental dance number dripping with strands of crystal blue beads eventually became a tribute to Lapis Lazuli, a character from the animated series Steven Universe. Lapis is imprisoned for millennia, far from home, until she is freed by the eponymous hero. Her thirst for revenge against her captors, combined with her otherworldly hydrokinetic powers, unleashes a destructive force that only she can tame: by choosing to forsake her identity, and to lock herself away again in a prison of her own making.
