Unprepared 06:02
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 handle 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
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
Not To 07:12
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
Out of Range 06:38
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
Outrageous 06:57
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 Outrageous 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
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
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


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".

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 one 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 as good as I wanted, 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.
