Lost by Falcon Heights Music published on 2013/03/27 03:26:08 +0000 Inspired by the past and catalyzed by heartache, Illusions & Chimeras (Wait & Hope) stems from a pair of Alexandre Dumas quotes and tells the emotional story of "a time in my life in which love finally lost, and I questioned it's very existence." The album weaves together pieces of classic literature with themes of love and loss; but ultimately is the auto-biographical record of one man's emotional journey to find the remains of himself after the fall out of a traumatic relationship. This is a spoken word piece that I wrote. It is meant to be a transition track. It is an actual transition between tracks in the way that it morphs from the harmonic structure of Victims & Villains to that of Illusions & Chimeras. More than that it is a turning point in the story. The song represents defeat. It is the admission of failure and ultimately the realization that there was nothing that could have been done.
