From LT: Lyrically this came about after watching a documentary on TV about deceased INXS singer Michael Hutchence. It’s not actually about him at all or based on any person in particular, but that was enough to get me thinking about celebrity and how sometimes the end result of all of the struggle and sacrifice isn’t what you might expect.

The original idea for the song came from a bassline of Dakk’s (bass). He had a handful of really cool bass things he’d been noodling with that I got him to record at my studio when he came over one day. This triplet thing really caught my ear, and to me it had a real Queensrÿche kind of vibe to it all. The more I played around with it, the more it felt like the chorus of the song should be transposed up a tone and then cut up to make more quirky, which led to the chorus being mostly in 7/4 triplets. Dakk quickly took the new changes on board and turned his original simple idea into something magical. The rest of the song just seemed to fall into place around this bassline and became a really interesting and moody progressive metal song.



Making the play, the future is mine
Seizing the day, walking the line
Here I stand, just a man with his life in his hands
With tooth and nail and hand over fist I climb on and on...

A dream of a life far from here
I know one day I'll find...

A better way
A brighter day
The perfect life
Is on the other side
A chance for me
To live the dream
The grass is green
On the other side...

Reaching the top and I wonder, is this all there is?
All those years that I walked the line
Played the role, took it's toll on this goldfish bowl I call life
From every direction a voice - don't know which way to turn...

I search for a life far from here
The one I left behind...



Another headline, another fallen star
Are we better off where we are?
