Never Look Back
All the songs were written on acid, among other things, and the song The Mourning After… was written after taking a Snapple bottle full of liquid l.s.d, and being awake for six straight days. The album to be titled “Never Look Back” is really just a dream sequence about a musician on acid, who tries to commit suicide while tripping by filling a bathtub, and slitting his wrists. Consequently he passes out from exhaustion in the water, and awakes still high thinking he is a ghost…
He then walks around thinking he is invincible, and fulfills every depraved, desire he could never get away with while alive… Slowly as the drugs wear off, he becomes vulnerable and human again, and realizes that he is alive after all. The worst is behind him… For now.
