“Lifeforce” is the story of a personal catastrophe, an individual end of the world, beginning from a state of inspiration and hyperactivity, through doubt, destabilization, failure, consternation, collapse, and then on to relativisation, assessment, the return of hope, and renewal.
The story is told in non-linear time, beginning just after the collapse, and the various stages are presented as objects of an introspection which will lead to appraisal and peace and will allow the protagonist to determine his next direction.
The clip presents the introduction along with “Forsaken,” the first section of the suite, which together form the first half of chapter 4 on the album. The lyrics to “Forsaken” follow below.http://drop.io/download/public/4blmx88lyepvlzuul7pl/138c53b23ef2c372979c92919e8330069c5ee67a/366186f0-c412-012b-625f-f81b461df519/3f2a7cb0-c414-012b-3f99-f61d07f7b5a7/converted-poligraf.lifeforce.2009.part1_converted.mp3%20
The goal was so near, yet there was no reaching it
The prize was so dear, yet there was no tasting it
Inches away, promise of a better day
Fading away, only agony remains
Nowhere to find, such elusive peace of mind
Nowhere to go, left abandoned to the flow
Endeavors over the years, disregarded in a day
Seeds of hope and fruits of tears, so high a price to pay
