Journey To A Better Place: Preface

Elijah Barrows was the ripe age of forty-three when death arrived at his doorstep. Prior to his abrupt parting from this Earth, he came to realize that everyone who once loved him no longer desired to give him the time of day. Selfish excuses and vain remarks drove people away before he was able to realize the extent of his ego-centrism. A wife and two loving children were a faded memory, and a path leading back to them was unfit to travel.

Too many mistakes had been made along the way-the intractable kind that no one ever escaped/ He would never make amends with any of them, never hear the words "I love you" from his children again, never know what events could have aspired had be been a better person at the time. The wall separating Elijah from the rest of the world grew thicker each day, and he was merely a shell of a man he truly wanted to be.

The terminal illness that left Elijah with only a few months to live was the best thing that could have happened to him, despite the inevitability of his death. With a time limit on his future, life simply became a collection of the unsaid words, broken promises, and stifled emotions.

This is the story of the four month journey to a better place. A story about how one man came to terms with what he sacrificed. Above all, this is a lesson--for everyone.

With this EP we decided to do something different than we had ever done before. This cd was written as a concept that greed can overcome anyone and most before they realize whats happening. We see it too often that people take what they have for granted, and we wanted to write our own story of a man that experienced it all and didn't live to tell the tale.

Track Name: Embrace
I was once a man
Now I’m just a shell of what I once wanted to become
But now I’ve seen just who it is I am
And it disgusts me
And I’ve realized this too late
That going back home is just a dream
So I will carry on
Inside this shell

I’m gone now
No going back
Oh how I wish I could turn back the clock
But I know I can only live with what I’ve done
My choices they have blinded me
From my past

I cannot go on
I cannot go on like this I will die someday but for now
All I ask of you
Just remember who I once was
Not the shell I am today
It is breaking on all sides
My foundation is crumbling
Beneath me

I’m gone now
No going back
Oh how I wish I could turn back the clock
But I know I can only Live with what I’ve done
My choices they have blinded me
From my past
Track Name: Time
We all fight to see tomorrow
Waking up to find
All you need
Is right in front of you
Just take the time
To look

You know I can take a step
Towards getting where I should be
But I know I can’t lose myself
Or I’ll just run away
But if I should cross your mind
Let me know
And I will be there my love

Yesterday is now long gone
And right now I’m trying to see
How tomorrow will be
In my future
But if you should come along
I’ll fight time itself

You know I can take a step
Towards getting where I should be
But I know I can’t lose myself
Or I’ll just run away
But if I should cross your mind
Let me know
And I will be there my love..
Track Name: Live
My eyes are open
I’m seeing everything
Life is new to me again
I’m learning to live and love
As if I never have before
But my scars show that I’ve
Known pain

Forgive and forget is harder than it seems
I never want to forget
This means everything to me
I’m on the edge but I haven’t fallen yet

I’m loosing grip
And it doesn’t seem like anyone is listening
The silence has become my only friend
But my gut tells me
That someone is out there

Forgive and forget is harder than it seems
I never want to forget
This means everything to me
I’m on the edge but I haven’t fallen yet
I see a light a glimmer of hope
This time its real
I can feel it coming to me
I’m on the edge
But I haven’t fallen yet
Can someone help me up
Nevermind
I’ve lost.. Grip
Track Name: After Death
A part of me is dead and gone
But a part of you will always remain
My life has changed because of this
Hearing your name will never be the same again

On this journey to a better place
I have seemed to find my way
And the lessons I've learned have changed me
But it's too late to change anything
I was always good at being too late

I've lived and I've loved
Been lost and never found
Bruised and beating never asked for any of this
Discovered too late that love will take you home again
And I found too soon that darkness surrounds me


On this journey to a better place
I have seemed to find my way
And the lessons I've learned have changed me
But it's too late to change anything
I was always good at being too late
