i never told anyone about this IRL cause it sounds fucking insane but as I play I see the whole sound as shapes of different colours and sometimes forming into words and numbers but it is hard to focus on because my brain is in another place or else i can't hear how i want it to sound

so your brain is like itunes visualizer? sounds cool
nah its not so uniform more like an abstract painting. 

this obviously isn't a song but just some noodling as an example


at first my vision is blank then some small round shapes (not perfectly round) sort of a periwinkle and taupe colours at 0:17 I played a bad note which gave the weird slimy plastic sheen to the shapes. as it picks up around :25-30 that's a response the plastic is kind of peeled away like a wrapper on a cookie. by :53 that baking theme is still there kind of an earthy brown/orange but still the periwinkle sometimes. to talk numbers it's so simple and consonant the only numbers I see are 8s and 0s. the last little run is a 3 

again it's tough to explain without a full song which i don't want to share on here for obvious reasons

Quite simply, OP has synesthesia...

Likely comes from a strong soul in a past life.

He could well become a master wizard if so inclined.

You've got some intense synesthesia.   Is it helpful?   How's your pitch?
