This song was co-written by John E. Norfolk who also played the bass on the recording, just after his father had passed away. It's about trying to come to terms with where your life is heading, not succeeding, and trying to escape to another reality.

ABILENE
c.2006 M.Vandling, John E. Norfolk

I woke up this morning
with blood on my hands
I couldn't remember why I was here
I looked out the window
surprise what I saw
you were planting flowers again.

I guess I lost my way
but I can hear you calling Abilene
If anybody asks ya, just tell 'em I'm gone
just a faded memory...

Last year when my father died
I learned I can't live in the past
the bridges I'd burned
and the lessons I've learned
all lead me back to Abilene

[CHORUS]
now I'm floating in the breeze
far away from Abilene
floating in the breeze far away
yea I'm floating in the breeze
far away from Abilene
and if anybody asks ya just tell 'em I'm gone
with no apologies

[SOLO]

[CHORUS]

I have to agreewith those guys

You are starting to get my attention.

"I woke up this morning
with blood on my hands
I couldn't remember why I was here
I looked out the window
surprise what I saw
you were planting flowers again."

That is so fucking surreal...

Agreed.

Many NewGrounds users don't see how hard it is to make animation, games, music, they don't understand art. This song is awesome, powerful, well made, I thought it was fantastic, enjoyed listening to it, great job man. Voted 5. -Mavorick

Mavorick, I do put a lot of hard work into my music and you are right, people really don't understand what is involved. Thank you very much for the kind words, they really mean a lot!

Who Said it was Easy Writing Songs?

Good solid style with a just a hint of Clapton. Which aint a bad thing. :)
