about

In The Last Waking Moments... is Edison's Children's first studio album featuring Pete Trewavas (Marillion/Transatlantic) and Eric Blackwood (Blackwood and Foti/Sunblister/Crimson Steele). Trewavas and Blackwood composed and produced the album and played every instrument and Vocal except for special guest appearances by Marillion, Andy Ditchfield (DeeExpus) and Robin Boult (Fish). ITLWM is the only time that all of Marillion have appeared on the same album together that wasn't a "Marillion" album.

In The First Waking Moments... is a concept album about an individual who experiences a strange and unusual occurance and attempts to determine whether it was reality or a descent into madness.

Track Name: Dusk
twisted...
don’t know where the hell i am
blinded...
will i ever see you again
silent...
regretting the words i wish were said
deafened...
if only i could hear your voice again
winter...
when will this november ever end
bitter...
so ugly just under the skin
distant...
i can feel you begin to pull away
all that’s left inside...
bleeds into the falling rain
haunted...
is there no escape from your distant memory
wasted...
is this all i was ever meant to be
broken...
left and abandoned here to rust
leave now...
before the rising of the dusk
Track Name: Fracture (Fallout of the 1st Kind / The Last Refrain)
a laser beam like out of a dream paralyzed
a muted scream like a movie theme lights up the sky... fireflies dance around your eyes feel the rise
so step inside begin the ride it’s your time to fly...


See with my eyes believe in my mind
but i can’t explain
light up the sky in the dead of the night
like it was yesterday
what is it you want
why would you come all this way?
of all the people around
inside of this town why am i to blame?


bleeding out... through the last refrain
lost inside... of what you can’t explain
feel the skid... across a blind turn
the flame ignites... into a slow burn
Track Name: In The First Waking Moments...
wherever I go i’ll be watching you...
whatever the road i’ll be right by you
this whole thing has me spinning round and round...
my crazy little world has turned upside down.
Track Name: A Million Miles Away (I Wish I Had A Time Machine)
i wish i had a time machine, so i wouldn’t have to dream.
i understand your need to be, a million miles away from me. the sky was so brilliant blue and i was lost in the sunshine of you...
and it’s another sunny day, but your a million miles away... away... from me.

i wish i could change your mind
the way it has a thousand times.
remember how it felt that day,
when you looked at me that way?

i wish i had a time machine, so i wouldn’t have to dream
but i understand your need to be,
a million miles away from me.

the sky was so brilliant blue,
and i was lost in the sunshine of you.

...and its another sunny day
but you’re a million miles away.

and someday you will wake up
and this will all have gone away.
it’s time to make your mind up
because that someday is today.
today...

i wish i had a time machine
so i can finally end this dream
but i understand you have to be...
a million miles away

from me...
Track Name: Fallout (Of The 2nd Kind)
See with my eyes, believe in my mind
but i can’t explain
light up the sky in the dead of the night
like it was yesterday
what is it you want why would you come
all this way?
of all the people around inside of this town
why am i to blame?

wherever i go i’ll be watching you
whatever the road i’ll be right by you.
this whole thing has me spinning round and round
my crazy little world is turned upside down

what’s left to take there must be some mistake
i’m nobody
you want some diplomat, some fat bureaucrat
not some guy like me.
you won’t get me to sing cause i don’t know a thing
i have nothing to say.
so take what you’ve found, put me back down and go away...
Track Name: Outerspaced
come on...
hey there big dipper we all come in peace.
come on down and feel the music rising off the streets.

oh come on... can we all just get along?
take me to the sky... how high can we fly?
let’s ride!

welcome to our earth, come try some of this.
knock back a few of these, we’ll get intergalactic pissed.

oh come on, can we all just get along?
take me to the sky... how high can we fly?
let’s ride!

we got happy trees, the kindest of herb.
send you back to Outerspace without leaving earth.

oh come on, can’t we all just get along?
take me to the sky how high can we fly?
let’s ride!
Track Name: Spiraling
sail along... going nowhere.
after all you were already there...
adrift in space, through the milky way to the promised land. floating past the great expanse, of your own head.
celestial sea... tranquility across the heavens
a journey from what i’ve become... the emptiness
through the void of celluloid, to the darkness
it won’t be long til i’ve gone past the conscious.

you better not take too long...
you better not wait too long...
Track Name: In The Last Waking Moments...
wherever I go i’ll be watching you...
whatever the road i’ll be right by you...
no matter how far...
how distant the star...

this whole thing has me spinning round and round.
my entire world is turning upside down.
but i’ll keep holding on... we’ll weather the storm.

whenever i feel alone
it helps to know that you’ll always be there
it keeps me hanging on
when things don’t always go quite as planned.
together we’ll make it through
whatever this life throws our way.

it is what keeps me strong
what keeps me hanging on
why we will weather the storm

wherever I go i’ll be watching you...
whatever the road i’ll be right by you...
no matter how far...
how distant the star...

this whole thing has me spinning round and round.
my entire world is turning upside down.
but i’ll keep holding on... we’ll weather the storm.
When I am Far From Home. I'll keep you close in my memory
That is what drives me on and gets me through til the end of the day
It was keeps me strong... What keeps me holding on... why we will weather the storm

This whole crazy world has got me spinning round...
Track Name: Lifeline
don’t know where you come from
don’t know where you’re going to
i don’t know why you think you need me to come back with you
we know exactly who you are
we’ve been waiting for you for the longest time
I don’t know who you’re talking to
i don’t belong here with you...

I have things to do today
let’s go sir right this way
you can't just take my world from me
it was going to happen eventually

what makes you suddenly appear
and take us all away from here
and leave everything we know behind
on psychedelic overdrive
watch your step and hold on tight
we’ll be traveling at the speed of light
i have bunch of shit to do
and not a bit involving you...

i don’t think i’ve made it clear
gonna get myself right out of here
it doesn’t matter what you say
you’ll be coming with us anyway

throw me a lifeline...
Track Name: Fallout (Of the 3rd Kind)
Wherevet you go, I'll be watching you...

See with my eyes, believe in my mind
but i can’t explain
light up the sky in the dead of the night
like it was yesterday
what is it you want why would you come
all this way?
of all the people around inside of this town
why am i to blame?

what’s left to take there must be some mistake
i’m nobody
you want some diplomat, some fat bureaucrat
not some guy like me.
you won’t get me to sing cause i don’t know a thing,
i have nothing to say.
so take what you’ve found, put me back down
and go away!
Track Name: The Awakening (Slow Burn)
i really have to tell you this is not who i am
i was really quite normal like any other man
but then it all happened with no probably cause
it changed everything around me it changed who i was

(don’t know who to believe can’t wake or go to sleep)

when i walk into a room its like i’m not really there
some people look away the others stop & stare.

lying here beside myself and listening to the rain
i asked for help to call someone but no one really came
did i want someone to listen or just apportion blame?
it was easier to say he’s probably gone insane.
from the back-streets with their corner shops
to the houses in pall mall
to the quacks on harley street
to the beggars down the hall
i understand that all of this defies reality
but all the really matters is something happened to me...


slow burn...
bleed it out through the last refrain...
lost inside what you can’t explain
begin the skid across a blind turn...
the flame ignites into a slow burn
bleed it out through the last refrain...
trying to cope with what you can’t explain
begin the skid across a blind turn...
it all erupts into a slow burn
Track Name: Fallout (Of the 4th Kind)
i know i’m lost but it’s vaguely clear
that sometime long ago they had taken me here
familiar place that i can’t describe
buried deep within the recess of my mind

i know i’m here, not sure where that is
all i know is that its not supposed to exist
when the silence comes its about to start
void of sound except for their beating hearts
they come for me i just felt it move
system ctrl alt del ...
