Going Home

by Quick and the Dead



IVM009. Released in late 2007 (but officially in early 08') on Indie Vision Music. Alt-Punk that would please fans of The Used, My Chemical Romance, Saosin.

I fell in love with this band upon hearing some demos back in 2005 and was actually pointed to this band by the guys in Anthym (Now Midnight Hour). I followed them for a few years and immediately asked them if I could carry their “Consider Your Options” CD in the IVM Store back in 06′. Shortly after, I decided (without really thinking it through) to “re-launch” the Indie Vision Music label and signed Quick and the Dead. I released “Going Home” in late 2007 on the Indie Vision Music label. As you may have guessed, the label this time around, didn’t last long either, and I quit doing it right after the release of this album and Hearts Bleed Passion Vol. 3, the final release by the “label”. I didn’t have the best of luck at finding touring bands, and soon after this release, another band called it quits. “Going Home” was produced by Shane Gould and mastered by Troy Glessner up at Spectre Studios in Seattle.

Shane Gould, frontman/guitarist/songwriter, is one of the most prolific songwriters I’ve ever had the chance of knowing. This guy writes an insane amount of music and records it all himself with his own equipment. There was a Quick and the Dead album actually released between “Consider Your Options” and “Going Home” called “The Perfect Plan in Imperfect Hands” but the band shelved that album for reasons I’m not entirely sure of. Shane is now involved in The Animal in Me. Has also written songs with The Threats, Audiomonster, and the Mendelson name.

Track Name: Please Come Home
If this is the beginning then i'll gladly start to find my way

but if this is the end then it seems i'm lost again

cause all that i want is to be home with you by my side by me

please come home
Track Name: The Grass Is Always Greener On The Otherside
Don't you give me no lip now, cause it's in your hands

We get by, by making demands

Don't say you wanna end up with, with me in your arms

You'll be the one that tears us apart

But i believed that we could make it through the storm

when you have been waiting and i'm too long

Don't think the grass is always greener on the other side

If you can't find out where your heart belongs

don't think the grass is always greener on the other side

Don't you worry about failure, take your time, we won't make it by falling behind

If there ever was a time for, for an apology

Here's the time it's in front of me
Track Name: We Take Advantage
You'll be the one that brings me down, till you got what you want

I'll be the one that doesn't care until my work is done

We are the ones that fail every time we try

It's hard to believe in him when you're barely scraping by

We've got what we want when we're on his shoulders

It's easy to believe in him

We've got what we want when we're on his shoulders

We take advantage of him

I'll be the one to curse your name till I get what I want

You'll be the one to give me things just because of your love

We hope you understand we don't deserve your grace

We are your humble servants when we're in a dark place
Track Name: Holding On To A Dream
I have been waiting on answers answers that never came

I've wasted time now i'm fallin' behind and i've only got myself to blame

People will spend their lives waiting

To never realize it's their's for the taking

They'll bang their heads and they'll wonder what happened when they look to the end and realize there's no future

You will break their hearts cause I believe you will break their hearts

And I know if there is no reason for living, then i'll take my chances with death

I'd rather bury my soul then to ever lose control of my Faith it's possible but then i know that'd mean nothing

I've been holding on to a dream that I know is right for me
Track Name: Integrity
Behind the lies and everything you say to disguise

There is so much more, I'm waiting for

And when the seasons change and rearrange the way you look at everything are you listening to me

It's like having ideas shot down when you've worked hard

To get to the top cause it's where you want to be

It's like realizing your life's a mess cause you've wasted time on integrity

Behind the truth there's very little to define

It's so simple what are you waiting for

With any luck you'll see that there is only mystery in front of you it's what you do

Don't forfeit integrity
Track Name: Nothing Changes
Don't you know, you think you'd know

The price of communication, a price you hold so dear

But if you'd show, if you'd show an ounce of appreciation then i won't live in fear

I thought i'd relate this far what for

When I don't know who you are anymore

But if you knew the things I think about the things you do

Then maybe you wouldn't do them

And if you cared, about the lives you have affected, then maybe you wouldn't do this
Track Name: Shipwrecked
Up on the deck where the party rages on and the people will have a good time

But below the surface of the waters thought calm, there is something they're about to find

First it hit starboard they fleed to the scene

It would appear that maybe they'd run aground

But as the captain shouted out "men we hit ice"

Man the sails cause we're going down and how will know if the captain has left him below

Cause I see some land and i know we need to get there

They signaled for help and they shot up their flares and the sky lit up red in the night

But it was hopeless as they took on water and the people panicked with a fright

The shipwreck was bad but we knew he'd stay true as they watched themselves sink into blue

Women and children first and he would stay last but nobody wanted him to
Track Name: This Is Not Real
Up on my surface, my exterior I seem fine but i'm a lie

You wouldn't know that I am ready to explode

You think I try my best to hold in regret

But you don't see the rest cause you're too busy leading your own life

But I'll do better I swear i'll try

No i'll do better I swear i'll try

This is not real

This is not what I wanted

This is your song what you want I can't believe that i've wasted breath and time writing it down
Track Name: He Is Always There
You should know by now that this feeling won't get old

You should know by now that the sea water is cold

If our love is strong then it means that we belong

And if they say otherwise then i believe they're wrong

That's why I said it's hard to believe that you took a chance on me

If we are firm in him then we can't fail anytime

No matter how hard we try he's always by our side

When we think he has disappeared he is always there

You should know by now that our love is pure and if we work real hard then we will persevere

And if we reach the top i'll pray that we'll stay there

Cause we've worked this hard and it is only fair
Track Name: The Black Widow Dressed In White
She's poisonous all dressed in white and disguised like she's not the one

Who kills you and leaves you

But i'm alive

I'm the one who was caught in the middle of your webs and lies,


In the end everything comes around

She's the one who's world renowned and she always brings you down

In the end everything goes her way she's a queen without a crown

and she's waiting to be found

She gets at you

Pretends she's the victim whil your veins bleeding through and replaced with venom

I can't make it stop you're not willing to own up to anything

Admit you're wrong

Track Name: Will I Follow
As I wait I begin to understand the plan, you've laid in front of me

As I walk at a distance from myself I see that life's still waiting

We run away cause we believe nothing this time

Don't you know that you've gotta believe

And we love what we want but there's nothing that makes us this way

Don't you know that you've gotta believe,

Gotta believe

As I fall I begin to understand and believe that life's still waiting

As I stand I begin to see the plan that you have

But will I follow

And we believe time will bring on answers to the questions we have and we're doing fine

believe in me
Track Name: A Reason To Believe
I am lost but I know

I'm never given more than I can handle

But it seems like this is too much

I am wrong or I'm right

It doesn't matter I am so so sick of this fight and I would gladly give up

But it's all I have and I am holding on

And there is a reason to believe that maybe I have been wandering

And it seems that I have lost my flock

I'm ashamed and I am weak, oh God without you I am nothing

Will you please help me find my way

There is a reason to believe
Track Name: Going Home
You've gotta know when they say it's over now

It's over when they say

You've gotta know when they say it's over now

To just back down

But I won't back down cause it's all up to me now

I've got nothing to fear I'm on my way

I'm going home

You've got what you want just leave me alone

I'm going home

I've gotta feel like my time is wearing thin cause i've been lying

Too much at stake and I act like nothing is impossible

But I know that there's nothing too impossible
Track Name: *Bonus - I Am To Blame*
