about

My father served two tours in Vietnam. The first tour was 1965-66, and on returning my father formed a good friendship with Sgt. Tom Birnie in Townsville, Australia 1968. They both went back to Vietnam in 1970 as best mates.

In March 1971 Sgt. Tom Birnie was KIA. ...leaving behind a wife and a young son.

Since I was a kid I've seen what Vietnam has done to my own father, nightmares being probably the main thing I remember, but also the stress I have seen by my mother. I know practically nothing about other wars, and not much about Vietnam except I know my father lost a good friend, a wife lost a husband, and a son lost a father.

And for what? ...to be forgotten.

This is why Lifeless was written....

lyrics

I LEAVE MY PRIDE, INSIDE MY MIND
I LET THIS FEAR SURROUND ME
I TAKE THIS LIFE, LESS FACE YOU WEAR
AND LET IT BURN, IN MY MEMORY
MEMORY , A MEMORY , A PAIN THAT BLINDS....

I FIND IT HARD , TO SHAKE THIS PAIN
IT WRAPS ITSELF, AROUND ME
I TRY SO HARD, TO FIND THIS PLACE
THIS PLACE WHERE THEY, THEY WONT FIND ME
MEMORY , A MEMORY , A PAIN THAT BLINDS....

YOUR SKIN SO COLD, IT SEEMS SO LIFELESS......
I TAKE YOUR SOLE WITH ME , AND DIE.....

MEMORY , A MEMORY , THIS PAIN THAT BLINDS....
MEMORY , A MEMORY , THIS PAIN THAT BLINDS....

CAN'T YOU SEE, CAN'T YOU SEE, CAN'T YOU SEE, CAN'T YOU SEE, CAN'T YOU SEE, CAN'T YOU SEE,
NO ONE, WILL LEAVE
THE LIGHT WILL, SET YOU FREE
TWIST YOUR MIND, MY LIE
NO WORRIES THEY CAN SEE
CHANGE YOUR MIND, AND WATCH YOU
LIFE , ME, TWO TO TALK, MAKE THEM SEE
LIFE , ME, WATCH YOU, WATCH YOU DIE.......

LIFE, WHO SAID WE'LL SEE

MEMORY , THIS MEMORY , THIS PAIN THAT BLINDS.... (AWAKE )
MEMORY , THIS MEMORY , THIS PAIN THAT BLINDS....
( AWAKE )

CAN'T YOU SEE ME ALIVE, SEE ME FANTASIZE(AWAKE)
CAN YOU MAKE THEM SEE, WATCH YOU (AWAKE)
TOOK A LIFE, CANT YOU SEE, MAKES NO SENSE
CAN YOU SEE ME, SEE , WATCH YOU
REALITY, ME, LIFE,
SEND ME HOME,SEND ME HOME
SEND ME HOME, IF THERE'S A WAY TRY

DID YOU FIND ME , JUST TO SEE ME , FREEDOM

I DON'T FEEL YOU TALKING TO ME
I DON'T LIKE YOU TALKING TO ME
SEE ME, SET ME FREE,
LIFELESS COME, LIFELESS


YOUR SKIN SO COLD, IT SEEMS SO LIFELESS......
I TAKE YOUR SOLE, WITH ME AND DIE.....
