about

A carefully crafted electronic pop-rock album which took way too long to write and record! This was supposed to be my last studio album as I was tired of releasing them into a void, hence the title.

Track Name: This Far Gone
First thing I know is that I woke up in pain.
My arm was twisted, and a little insane.
I tried to go where they could make it right.
but little did I know that they would be blowing my mind.
There was a bit of panic and a lot of pain.
But then they blew a hole right through my brain.
I was supposed to be out, but I was all too awake.
In some sort of alternate dimension state. I was...

This.... Far.... Gone....
Don't wanna be this far gone...
Hey hey hey

And for a flash I knew nothing at all.
I woke up to find I was inside of the wall
looking back at myself lying there.
Something isn't right, and I'm getting scared.
Further down the hole they were waiting for me.
This other place that they wanted me to see.
Just when I thought I was hip to the condition.
A doorway opened to another dimension. I was...

This.... Far.... Gone....
Don't wanna be this far gone...
This.... Far.... Gone....
This.... Far.... I don't know how much more I can take!

And now they're smashing me down to a pulp.
I'm vacuumed through a tube after i dissolve.
I have no hands and feet, and I can't find my head.
Suddenly I realize that I might be dead.
I kick and scream through the vortex of time.
I feel them holding me as I twist and rhythe.
Panic and fear takes hold as I fall
If I don't have me I don't have anything at all. I was...

This.... Far.... Gone....
Don't wanna be this far gone...
[This] I want to awake [Far] now [Gone] ooh...
Track Name: Imitation of Life
Here I am again in this land of make believe.
I come here to be with you, I come here just to dream.
And I'll bring you into this place, I'll put you through the trials
I'll change the look on your face, and I'll even make you smile.

Clinging to your essence it feels so lifelike.
Dragging out each moment, we could stay like this all night.
But the more I stay here with you, the more I start to see.
That this is just a prison, and I'm sure that I must leave.

I can't recall just how long I've stayed.
I hope that it is not too late.
I have to leave... It cannot be this way!!!

You're not real, you were designed
to be an imitation of life.
I have to go, I have to say goodbye...

The hours I spend with you here in this darkened dream.
I almost believe a life in you is staring back at me.
All the games we play, in this land of make believe.
Takes me though the hours of night, steeling away my sleep.

Clinging to your essence, it feels so lifelike
All the perfect moments, we could stay out here all night.
But the more I stay here with you, the more I start to see.
The stone walls of this prison are closing in on me!!!

I can't recall just how long I've stayed.
I hope that it is not too late.
I have to leave... It cannot be this way!!!

You're not real, you were designed
to be an imitation of life.
I have to go, I have to say goodbye...

No more steeling away my time.
I have to find a way to the light.
Just let go and let me take back my life!!!
You're not real, you were designed
to be an imitation of life.
I have to go, I have to say goodbye...
Track Name: Heaven and Earth
I want to pull heaven down to earth.
I want to bring paradise into this place.
I'm tired of being alone, but I don't see the need to change.
I'm starting to get old, I need to live before it's too late.

On the screen is my dream.
In the play there is no say.

I want you to know the very measure of pain.
That moves around from side to side in my brain.
And soon you will be paralyzed; frightened to make a move.
Everyone looking down on you, hoping you won't improve.

Is it only me, that won't set me free?
Is it so easy to live what's in my dreams?

Do you feel what I can feel? Hopelessness and shame.
Do you feel what I know is real in this never ending game?

I want to pull heaven down to earth.
I want to bring paradise into this place.
I'm tired of being alone, but I don't see the need to change.
I'm starting to get old, I need to live before it's too late.
Track Name: Early Autumn
I found you again on early autumn day.
You're returning and you just won't go away.
I just had to see what's become of your life.
I just had to see by the end of this night.

Cos I feel I cannot move ahead.
Until I beg forgiveness.
The silence is breaking up my head,
I only want to end this.....crazy dream.

Should I just stay away from you for good?
I know where you live, but I don't know if I should.
Maybe I should leave it up to fate.
But for the longest time they held you away.

Cos I feel the time may be drawing near.
It's time to make amends....
All I want is to end this fear,
Strange may never see you again....

I'd take it all back if I could, but what is done is done.
I'd call you if I thought you'd listen and never turn to run.
These traces of you in my life always reminding me
of a time, you could have been mine, but now it's all behind me!
All you are is a ghost to me, is it you or me that won't set me free???

All you are is a ghost to me....
Is it you or is it me? That won't set me free.
Track Name: Forget Me
A sudden pain wakes me out of sleep.
It's always here in the dark, the knife cuts so deep.
Do you ever find yourself thinking of the times gone by?
Cause you never came back around, didn't even try.

Cause I never heard a sound, and now the curtain's coming down.
Your live is moving fast, leaving me in the past.
Is there still a place for me in your memory?
Or will you move along with your life, and eventually forget me?

Exiting the stage, will I vanish from the page?
It's always here in the night, that I face my silent rage.
You had never tried to reach through to break me free.
A crashing of another wave on the sea of memory.

Cause I never heard a sound, and now the sun is going down.
Your going on so fast, leaving me in the past.
Is there still a place for me in your memory?
Will you move along with your life, and eventually forget me?

Cause I will never forget you! I will never let you go!
You're always there with me, I just wanted you to know!
Track Name: Brief Encounter
I'm cold inside, but you seem so eager.
You try again, but you only make me feel fear.
I don't need you, but why do I fan the flame?
I know, already know that I will lose at this game.

So don't even try, don't even break a smile for me.
Just walk on by, don't even waste your time on me.
I won't be coming back this way anymore...

I'm caught in your gaze time starts to slow down.
I'm trapped a dog in a cage, and all I wanna do is break out.
Back to my life, lonely life, the only one that I know.
I don't want you, but why don't I turn to go?

Cos I won't even try, so don't attempt to set the mood.
Broken inside, with all the things I've been put through.
Although you look so fine, that only makes harder to speak to you.
So please don't try, there's nothing more that you can do.

All these fears are drowning me, you cannot save me now.
Along the sea of memory, the current pulls me down.

I won't be coming back this way anymore...
You'll never see this face coming through your door.

(Solo)

You're already taken, they've already found their way to you.
I've already lost the game, and I've got nothing more to prove.

All these fears are drowning me, you cannot save me now.
Along the sea of memory, the current pulls me down.

I won't be coming back this way anymore...
You'll forget the day I walked away forever more...
I'll keep myself on ice, frozen to the bone.
You'll never find me, I'll be out there all alone.

I'm cold inside.... I'm cold as ice....
Track Name: Walk Away
Everyday it seems, there's less and less to say.
Every night I dream about just quitting and walking away.
Cause if I stay I'm in danger, with a heavy price to pay.
But if I go there is paradise, and I know that I'll be saved.

The dream is over, I found a different life.
There was no treasure on the over crowded tide.
I'm walking away now, no more songs of yesterday.
My real life is waiting for me to end this game today.

No more steeling away all my precious time.
I've made my decision on what I want to leave behind.
Cause if I stay I will suffocate, there's a heaviness in the air.
But if I go I am granted, the treasure that's waiting there.

The dream is over, I found a different life.
There was no treasure on the over crowded tide.
I'm walking away now, no more songs of yesterday.
My real life is waiting for me to end this game today.
Track Name: In the Night
Sometimes in the night, I feel my heart is going to stop.
Sometimes at night I can see the ax about to drop.
Every time I close my eyes, just before I wake from dream.
I am one step closer to the edge when I stop breathing in my sleep.

Lying in bed, not feeling right
At first you're hot, and then you're cold.
I think you're turning white.

If I just turn to my side, maybe that will calm me down.
I feel I'm on the strangest trip, and I want to come back down.

Wake up cold and out of breath.
You're getting old, you're running with death.
The day's toll weighing on your heart.
And now you know that you're breaking apart.

Sometimes in the night, I feel my heart is going to stop.
Sometimes at night I can see the ax about to drop.
Every time I close my eyes, just before I wake from dream.
I am one step closer to the edge when I stop breathing in my sleep.

Head in pain, must be insane.
All thoughts of feeling safe going down the drain.

If I drift off to sleep, will I ever wake again?
The threat is very real, and I don't want to end up like my friend...

Heart is racing much too fast,
How much longer will this last?
Try to get the adrenaline down.
I don't want this thing to come back around.

Sometimes in the night, I feel my heart is going to stop.
Sometimes at night I can see the ax about to drop.
Every time I close my eyes, just before I wake from dream.
I am one step closer to the edge when I stop breathing in my sleep.
