Someone's Imagination - "Suddenly You're Gone"
A selection of songs written and recorded during the last 10 years, now finally put into context, remixed and "mastered".
This is a home production. I'm not an engineer.
The mixing was done on standard loudspeakers and all vocals were recorded in my apartment using a basic microphone.
The song sources were gathered from new and old project files made in many different programs and then manually exported, channel by channel, to wave files and imported to Cubase for mixdown and re-arranging where needed.
During approximately a week I spent more or less all my awake hours trying to finalize this project on my limited equipment. After the first upload I returned to the songs a few days later only to find that it didn't sound very good at all, and decided to take the first version off the net and start all over again.
I spent another five days trying to make it sound better, wondering when I should stop tweaking things and if my attention to details really made any difference to the outcome - and if so; to the better? This time it made a huge difference so I'm very happy I decided to spend some more time on it, cause suddenly you're gone - out of range for everyone.


released December 1, 2013

Track Name: Unprepared
Inside us all,
beneath whatever we expect to be
If you recall,
it all depends upon sincerity
I can't believe what we've achieved and fed among us
and so I turn in disbelief
to total strangers that I meet out in the street and say
"Explain to me"

Cause I'm still in doubt
You must agree,
we can't live without humanity

Relieve me;
tell me why I do not know
how to explain,
how it's for me
to be here
I'm unprepared, not up to it at all
Just let me be
I can't take it no more

Corruption grows
but no one seems to care or want to see
that we're so close,
we're so much closer than we want to be

And I'm running out of things to say
I can no longer shout
Just go away
Track Name: Silence Within
Don't lie;
you tried to hide me,
believing yourself
after all
Denied and tied,
so tired,
I waited for you to arrive

There are no stars
above us
We have nowhere to pretend
that you and I
got closer,
the presence of time
would not bend

You're so silent within,
like you're breaking your own heart
And the strength will start to fade away
once you've played out your part

You should fight my fears
You should like my lies
You should dry my tears
You should live my life
Track Name: Not To
Staring at the ceiling
wondering, thinking
Haunted by the feeling
that I bring nothing
Limiting all moments,
stopping time in time
Reaching through but backwards
I don't mind my mind

But I tend to disagree.
Somewhere inside of me
I can't imagine that
what will become of me,
what we call destiny,
is built by my regrets,
when I turn to this degree
in understanding me
and all the words I say
they live outside of me
and tell me seriously, not to

Arguing about it
makes no sense, nonsense
Listening to others
can prevent progress
Senseless, stupid meanings
make me try and try
It may seem pretentious
or like a lie

Inside it's all the same
but it's growing small
Outside I cannot recall
And when the feelings are gone,
and of no use at all,
it can not be like before
Track Name: Out of Range
Made up stories about a life
in desperation of endless tries
Incorrect recallings of a time gone by
Experiences died
Like a rainbow in black and white
Another victim lost in the night
This overwhelming feeling takes full control,
and covers up it all

How can we reach out and make a change
if we're all alone,
and everything keep whirling around
out of range for everyone?

In a castle made of gold
the master is ruling although he's too old
to even make decisions of what food to eat,
or wash his dirty feet
Still he's allowed to tell us what to do
and make up rules that turn us into
meaningless servants with no higher cause,
covered with remorse
Track Name: Outrageous
If, if you hunt a cause
you may hunt an enemy or a day
It's, it's above it all
It's inside us all the time, all around
This, this is not enough
This can't be the end of it, this will go on

All of us have something to encounter
Our lies could grow on trees today
It takes more than you could ever give
All our wishes wasted washing minds, in a ditch
Make it go away

With nothing to recall
everything is out of reach, out of time
When, when you start to fall
and you've got nowhere to go, you can't hide
Now when we've seen it all
turn into this mess we know it will go on
Track Name: Waiting Inside
You're on the floor
where they can't see you,
hoping it soon will go away
Lost all control,
hide in the shadows
caused by events of yesterday

You've been here before
but then you were older
and nobody clearly saw your face
A knock on the door,
a wish for no more,
a feeling too dangerous to embrace

Bad times calling
Nobody's near
They all disappear
back down falling
called insincere,
prevented by fear
Because when bad time's calling
nobody's near,
they all disappear
back down falling
called insincere,
prevented by fear

You open the door,
it looks like a mirror
with clouds in a light and purple sky
You've been here before
but then you were older
and there was no obvious reason why

I'll be waiting inside
Track Name: Only for Tonight
I saw a star fall in the sky
My head felt empty, my mind not dry
The image of it passing by
would not go away

Living for the night
Only for tonight

I walked alone there in the cold,
the path was overgrown since years ago
Beneath my feet it felt so old
I didn't know which way to go

Living for the night
Only for tonight

I saw myself among the trees,
my moves were wrong so I tried to guide
and show the way, but it would freeze
I dug a hole and tried to hide

Only for tonight
