    Since there is no live version of this I strongly recommend to have a listen to "Long Gone Now" on the soundtrack album 'Peaceful Warriors', released in 2006!

    Never seen the movie, but the track is one of my favorites... Love it !

    it was one of the tracks recorded for LISM that never made the album, just like Second Halo never made the Draw the Line album... but these tracks are just great !

    Love Second Halo, the lyrics "you're waiting ugly as the evening falls, and pulls out all the contents of my mind" wow heh? For me, as a new fan, its like there is this constant treasure trove of just fantastic music that you all keep finding!!!:)

    The song is not in the movie, at least not that I could tell- and I was listening for it. I LOVE this song. I have the whole album just for this song.

    Lyrics:

    Fair thee well
    My only one
    Far away by now
    Tide rises
    Everyone, just dirt in the ground

    Every time I needed you
    Never could I find
    My heart residue
    Is salt as the brine

    All the lies I've ever told
    All the love I never showed
    All the good I never done
    Is long gone now

    Mend the locks with cellotape
    Win the lottery
    Heaven help me anyone
    That takes you away

    This sparkling universe
    Never had no care
    For you or I or any part
    Our dreams are our prayers

    All the lies I've ever told
    All the love I never showed
    All the good I never done
    Is long gone now

    All the lies I've ever told
    All the love I never showed
    All the good I never done
    Is long gone now

    All the lies I've ever told
    All the love I never showed
    All the good I never done
    Is long gone now
    Is long gone now
    Is long gone now
