about

Music,Lyrics and arrangements by Ulrich Schadeck

This (...referring to Closer to Myself) was meant to be one of the track of the first full length release by Forced Evolution. Unfortunately changes in life, direction and priorities made that all plans to release an album were abandoned. Due to lots of difficulties for the band to find a definitive singer from 2009 to 2011 and thus the impossibility to tour on a regular basis the band lost hope and finally split. Progressively each band member then decided to focus on other solo and band projects.
Isn't that ironic that this particular song about hope and finding your own path in life becomes the last official Forced Evolution release.

You might hear some more from the band in the future. Who knows. But 'till then please respect our choices to live other musical adventures.

I wanna thank all musicians, fans and people who made Forced Evolution such a good trip. It was a great adventure. Forced Evolution is where I learnt the most through the first years of my musical career.

Best regards,
Ulrich Schadeck

lyrics

1st Verse:

Devoring Ambition
Killing me crushing me
Has left me on the edge of sanity
With no heart, with no smile,
But those scars on my face
For every tears that fell
Pushing it on to where I belong
I am chasing my dreams as hard as it seems
I am closing in - closing in to where I come alive

Chorus:

Will I ever reach my goal
Will I rise or wil I fall
Will I fly above the horizon

Will I ever see the end
Will I ever ease the pain
Or will I fall like a demon

2nd Verse:

One by one, step by step
On my own, alone,
I take control
Try to break through the walls
No one stares, no one cares
But I won't let it go, won't let it go
Pushing it on to where I belong
I am chasing my dreams as hard as it seems
I am closing in - closing in to where I come alive

Chorus:

Will I ever reach my goal
Will I rise or wil I fall
Will I fly above the horizon

Will I ever see the end
Will I ever ease the pain
Or will I fall like a demon

Will I ever touch my dream
Finally achieve my scheme
Will I reach my perfection

Will I ever see the end
Will I ever ease the pain
Will I reach my perfection

Bridge:

Help me
Take me to a place where I can be someone - be the one I want
Tell me
If there's such a world where I could feel closer - just closer to myself

Gtr solo: Ulrich Schadeck

Chorus:

Will I ever reach my goal
Will I rise or wil I fall
Will I fly above the horizon

Will I ever see the end
Will I ever ease the pain
Or will I fall like a demon

Will I ever touch my dream
Finally achieve my scheme
Will I reach my perfection

Will I ever see the end
Will I ever ease the pain
Will I reach my perfection
