Too late tonight, I'm gone, and you're miles ahead and I'm lost. Throughout this darkened scene, dark skies invade my dreams. The light resides in lines, offset in different times. And I'm blinded by this strange memory.
Frames change and I'm still lost. Scene still lay still in this fog, and I try only to see straight into through you.Your eyes become so bare, an eager emptry stare.
And I'm blinded by a sea of this strange memory. And I am...and I see...it's just me.
And I drift quietly through the thick of tree leaves. My mind slowly separates from my body. Days late and I'm not around now...I don't care.
Dreamscapes escape all my thoughts. Awake, I dream of a fate I cannot escape. Now it's too late. Time dies in straight lines. Waiting, and I can't take anything, I try to believe everything, but I can't. Follow me again, out from everything. The dark skies that I dreamt are all lies I have meant...

    General Commentoh my interpretation is that a guy is going out with a girl...she becomes distant and the guy doesn't know how to handle it...he shuts down and just stops caring about everything...so much emotion in this song

    General Commentyeah i think this song is basically about losing a connection with your loved one. but enough of all that malarky. this song is truly amazing, the best moneen song by far, and one of my favourite songs of all time. so powerful and so raw. i love it, almost as much as i love the fact that i'm seeing them tomorrow night in Leeds :) ho ho ho i cannea wait. even though im going with a friend who insists on staying for senses fail. tut tut. i think with any reasonable amount of rational thought, we shudnt spoil that gig with senses fail or from autumn to ashes, i mean horrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    General CommentThis has always been one of my favorite .moneen songs.

    As to the the talking at the end of the track, Tonight, Im Gone is from the album, The Theory Of Harmonic Value. The long-winded monologue is a man explaining his journey uncovering and quantifying his Theory of Harmonic Value. The whole thing is basically why the album is named that.


    In other words, do your deep thinking in the bathtub

    General CommentI forget to also mention that at the end, overlayed with the lyrics, being yelled is "What am I doing here"
