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.
