Where are you now? It feels like we are continents apart I’ve given all I had yet I’m still lost My reassuring words fell on deaf ears You’ve given in to fear Where have I gone? What was before has all been washed away A barrier constructed by your doubt No vows that I could hope now to maintain You’ve severed all the chains (chorus) Where are you now? When I am out here calling out your name Where are you now? When silence is all that will still remain Where are you now? When darkness comes to overtake the day Where are you now, where are you now? What can I do? I’ve saved my every hope but nothing’s won You turned your back on everything we had Returning to the love you claimed had died My faith is swept aside What would have been? If trust between us had been in our hearts Becoming what we wished would be a start I’d have a chance to witness what we are I thought we’d come so far (chorus)

Come on in, step inside Take a look at what you’ve burned Again and again, within the realm On this day of judgement for your crimes Did you think that you could elude this? Did you think that you could hide? Were you so sure that you were above it? Consequences you can’t outrun Ghosts of your ambition Are the shackles now around your feet Ghosts of your delusions Actions that you constantly repeat Ghosts of your ambition Ghosts of your ambition So unable to comprehend The trail of pain that you have blazed Enemies from what were friends Allies turned to sever their ties When do you say enough is enough? How much taking will satisfy? Now that conscience has caught up to you You can only trip and fall Ghosts of your ambition Are the shackles now around your feet Ghosts of your delusions Actions that you constantly repeat Ghosts of your ambition Ghosts of your ambition Judgement day Your life on trial for all to see As you fall Under the cover of who you’ve destroyed Ask yourself was this life worth it A path you’ve made on the backs of who you’ve scarred

Ahead there’s a hallway, filled with doors Each and every one is closed Feeling like this is never ending Answering questions no one posed Speaking a language that’s unheard of Seeing sights that are not real How to move on through this confusion How to capture the dreams we feel Taken down through unkind spaces Still in search of untold places If not now, when? Leave the past in sordid distance Breaking through the world’s resistance If not now, when? Ahead is a highway, pick up speed Words can’t contain the passion around One more day is more than enough now Set the sights on the distant sound Take all the chances, bring up the lead Take up the forefront of this race Don’t be denied of the things we hope for The rightful heir to time and space Taken down through unkind spaces Still in search of untold places If not now, when? Leave the past in sordid distance Breaking through the world’s resistance If not now, when?

You raised the stakes, you changed the game It can be said for sure that it won’t be the same You took it all, left none for me And left me out to dry for everyone to see You asked for everything, pain in disguise I saw dishonesty behind your very eyes Don’t take what you can’t provide Don’t say that you’re by my side I am alone, so far from home And I walk silently cause you’re not with me I can’t believe that you might see That I am dead inside cause you’re not with me You’re not with me, not with me You’re not with me. not with me now You held me close, made me secure Your reasons for these acts were anything but pure Don’t walk away, don’t feign your shame You know that all of this is only yours to blame Your time has come, and it will pass These actions have become your reckoning at last Don’t take what you can’t provide Don’t say that you’re by my side I am alone, so far from home And I walk silently cause you’re not with me I can’t believe that you might see That I am dead inside cause you’re not with me You’re not with me, not with me You’re not with me. not with me now Don’t take what you can’t provide Don’t say that you’re by my side I am alone, so far from home And I walk silently cause you’re not with me I can’t believe that you might see That I am dead inside cause you’re not with me You’re not with me, not with me You’re not with me. not with me now

Trying not to hear you The shadow you maintain It’s been so hard to see you The distances remain The bygone times don’t seem too great It’s all that have endured When current favors have run dry And no words are assured (chorus) Don’t go, the stars are far away Don’t leave, how can I make you stay? So far, deep into the night Just one more time, until the morning light No wishes to fulfill you You’re drifting far away No voices that persuade you The decades gone astray No eagerness is left in here Just echoes in this hall Retreating to the end of the path Preparing for the fall (bridge) Despite the lament of yesterday I look to you above my eyes Burdens carried for the rest of ways Chasing the fire in the sky (chorus) Don’t go, the stars are far away Don’t leave, how can I make you stay? So far, deep into the night Just one more time, until the morning light Don’t go, the stars are far away Don’t leave, how can I make you stay? So far, deep into the night Just one more time, until the morning light

Waiting in the dark Wishing you were here beside me Wishing we were still embracing That this story had a better ending Where did we fall astray? How did we ever reach this point here? I’m in here all alone With cold reminders of the man I’d been Give up your hopes, barricade your heart Take all the joyous times away Dreams fall apart, and visions fade to dust Until only a memory remains Caught up in the lie Trusting what our thoughts were saying I thought our best days lay ahead I thought an ember was burning bright How did I fail? What disappointment did I bring you? Now it seems “what could have been” Is all that’s left behind A moment in time, resigned to the past Images are falling down like rain Walking alone, all that’s at my side Are only the memories that remain

When I was a younger man, felt like the world was in my hands Everything seemed like it was for now Open doorways that I’d find, impressive heights for me to climb And confident that I’d prevail somehow All the pieces into place, the look of passion on my face To take the chance to be part of a whole With endless promise in front of me, on such a path to destiny Whoever thought that I would lose control If I were a smarter man, with better grip from helping hands Would any of this differently unfold? From up and down and left to right, I didn’t always have the sight Did I end up so blind by being bold? When true emotion has no end, enemies made from my friends When true intentions have all gone astray When senseless pride prevents your mind from knowing what to seek and find As quickly fortune comes it goes away (bridge) Carrying the weight of a thousand memories Drowning in the sea of yesterday Trudging through the dark, hoping to get back my time To the very end of what remains Now that I’m an older man, and life’s no longer in my hands I sit and wonder where I’ll go from here Abandoned by the ones I’ve known, I’ve harvested what I have sown And feeling like the end is drawing near So what will be my legacy, what you’ll remember about me Was I a mark of honor or a fool? And as the curtain starts to fall, I wonder was it worth it all The ending of this story is so cruel (outro) The story’s over The happy ending was an illusion It’s all behind me now And nowhere left to go

about

For its sixth studio album, Interface explores different territory in both composition and sonic landscapes. Where All Roads Lead consists of twelve “messages from dystopia” - another series of observations of the darkest sides of the human condition. The musical soundscapes range from industrial to ambient, synthpop to synthwave, with a melodic integration that only Interface can deliver. Highlights include the pulsing futurepop of “Outside Looking In”, the swinging groove of “If Not Now, When?”, and the pounding beat of “Not With Me”. The album marks the band’s first output on new label Distortion Productions.
