Beyond The Last Light

by Comes With The Fall

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Newly recovered from a warehouse shipment that was thought to be lost years ago, these are genuine copies from the first pressing of Comes With The Fall's classic album from 2007, "Beyond The Last Light," in perfectly new condition right out of the original pressing plant boxes. This is a true time-capsule discovery. Only 2,000 copies were pressed in the initial run. Most were sold back then at shows and through mail-order. These were shipped to a fulfillment center and inadvertently misplaced. But now they're here! This really is the last of the lot. Once these are gone, they're gone! The album is packaged in a beautiful 6-panel fold-out digipack featuring lyrics to all the songs and live photos taken from a Comes With The Fall performance at L.A.'s legendary Whisky-A-Go-Go in 2007.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Beyond The Last Light via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Rockslide 02:51
ROCKSLIDE (DuVall) Unleash your mind Submit to lies Unchain the wolves And close your eyes My heart is howling Beyond its size The rooster crows And your master dies Rockslide Comin’ down Hard ride ’Til you hit the ground Running My love is blind To your disguise The locusts swarm Around your prize © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)

THE LAST LIGHT (Lyrics: DuVall, Music: DuVall, Constantine, Stanger, Davies) The grass is always greener in a suicide I’m floating facedown in formaldehyde I’ve got the doctor screaming in my ear In purgatory for another year Wonder what’s on the other side As soon as I leave ground They come by the millions Trying to pull me down But I just take them all And drag them up the mountain Trying to hide that there’s a bitter ride Waiting on the other side Keep it rollin’ on the bitter ride I see the vengeance rising in their eyes Like kamikazes on the terrorize And now they’re giving me the third degree I know too much for them to set me free So open up the sky And feed them their illusion Let ‘em have the lie ‘Cause soon it comes around The truth of their desire Then the end is nigh ‘Cause it’s a bitter ride Waiting on the other side When you let them down And you can’t win for losing ‘Cause they’re never satisfied They will take your crown And knock you off the mountain Wreck your pride ‘Cause it’s a bitter ride Waiting on the other side © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP) / Last Leg Music (ASCAP)

PALE HORSE RIDER (DuVall) Heavy heart and a violent mind Just a cog in the wheel of time Like the driver of a stolen car I can’t go fast enough to get too far I’ll bring you from the darkness into light Turn your tears into diamonds No more crying Throw the righteous men against the wall Watch them fall Bullets flying But they keep trying Closed eyes White lies It’s the pale horse rider Blindside Can’t hide From the pale horse rider Burn the bodies in the funeral pyre Join the choir Learn your lesson Keeps you guessing The only way out is to start anew That means you No denying It’s all dying Closed eyes White lies It’s the pale horse rider Blindside Can’t hide From the pale horse rider All rise ‘Cause time flies Like a pale horse rider Star signs End times It’s the pale horse rider © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)

White Hot 04:13
WHITE HOT (DuVall) You are so much more than beautiful I can’t help trying You are so much more than beautiful I can’t help crying ‘Cause I can’t find the words for what you are I can’t find the name to claim your star My heart is breaking You are so much more than beautiful I want to lose myself ‘Cause I can’t find the words for what you are I can’t find the name to claim your star My heart is aching I see that look in your eyes It’s white hot I feel the heat from your skin It’s white hot And when I’m locked in your stare There’s nowhere left to run So let’s fly into the sun, my love © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)

BEAUTIFUL DESTROYER (Lyrics: DuVall, Music: DuVall, Stanger, Davies) Grasping at dead straws again I’m clawing at dry sand Can’t remember where I’ve been Or who died on command Our minds are what they’re after So I drown in your laughter Our souls in sweet reunion We die to keep it movin’ Don’t cry Beautiful destroyer of mine Fabulous disaster so fine I put all I’ve got on the line Just so you might show me one sign And so it goes I watch them drop like flies ’Til I find another face To use for my disguise I walk among the millions I smile like a civilian My mind is on a mission I’ll talk on one condition © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)

Hologram 03:09
I swore I was right Turns out I’m all wrong And I’ll always be wrong I’m like a hologram Staring at the light Watching angels hit the ground I swear they didn’t make a sound And I heard the choir sing: “This life makes us so afraid Seems like such an unfair trade Heaven just outside our door Left here - still don’t know what for” So say goodbye Kiss the sky Through the needle’s eye Standing on the hill And my head is spinning I’m at a loss for winning And it’s still not enough When you have no more need to hide (Whatcha wanna, do whatcha wanna) Taking that rollercoaster ride Can’t you feel me right here by your side? Together we’ll swim against the tide © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)

Black Cross 06:06
BLACK CROSS (Lyrics: DuVall, Music: DuVall, Constantine) Drink deep the air of the sunrise It’s time to be born again Because you know the tide’s finally turning Can’t go back to where you’ve been And every spell that’s cast on you shall be broken now And every evil done to you shall be spoken now So drown your despair Like the river that ran you through The black cross you bear Will one day deliver you Stranded Crash landed on a mountain range I don’t know how you survived But I do know you can’t take for granted The will that’s kept you alive For every star is formed in fire And so it goes for you And every face along your path Sees your heart is true So don’t burn the bridge ‘Cause I still believe in you And drown your despair Like the river that ran you through The black cross you bear Shall one day deliver you © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP) / Last Leg Music (ASCAP)

DEADLY ECSTASY (DuVall) You got the swagger but your stride’s too long You got your facts right but your story’s all wrong You’re quick and dirty like a modern machine But destiny has called you to a dead scene Don’t you think it’s time we finally severed all our ties? Don’t you ever wonder why we swallowed all those lies? It’s like a silent scream This deadly ecstasy And you get this all for free Layers of intention make a lovely bride And I know you got plenty on the side With armageddon comin’ ‘round the bend We’ll both be laughing right up to the end Got me tied up to the chair, why don’t you pull the switch? Don’t you ever tire of acting like a psycho witch? It’s like a silent scream This deadly ecstasy And you get this all for free So come and stay with me So exhausted, so enchanted, so ecstatic But my picture still looks so iconoclastic You’re the only one around who really sees me All the others in this town just wanna bleed me Got to take a step back, this is too fantastic But it all evaporates, that’s automatic © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)
9.
STILL GOT A HOLD ON MY HEART (DuVall) Leave me to my delusion Tell me what to say When the day is stealing every illusion I’m hoping, praying in vain that you’ll say That we’ll start again I can’t outrun the days gone by You still got a hold on my heart But you’re worth every tear I cry You still got a hold And there’s no letting go Sometimes when I’m still dreaming I listen and I could swear that I hear you singing Off in the distance You’re waiting for me to join the next line But I pantomime Just like the sky surrenders the rain falling down I keep on flying and crashing that plane Into your killing ground Every explosion knowing my soul is glory bound Then you can write on my grave That the love I gave you saved you While I slowly drowned © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)
10.
FIRE COME DOWN (DuVall) I still believe that love will save us And Mother Nature’s world she gave us Declaring death before the honor role And glory to the god we sold You think you have the victory You think your laws can bury me But I’ll be firing like a loaded gun And I’ll be gone before the rising sun There’s no coming down after this Higher than the clouds that you kiss Listen to the sound Of a fire come down A fire walks with me Fire come down © 2007 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)

about

"Beyond The Last Light" is the fourth full-length album by Comes With The Fall, following "Comes With The Fall" (2000), "The Year Is One" (2001), "Live 2002" (2002), the "Live Underground 2002" tour DVD (2003), and "The Reckoning EP" (2006).

The AllMusic album review by Greg Prato:

Just who was that man who fronted Alice in Chains so surprisingly well during the group's reunion performances of 2006? That would be William DuVall, who in addition to lending a hand when needed to his friend Jerry Cantrell, also fronts another band, Comes with the Fall. Their 2001 full-length debut, Year Is One, largely fell under the radar despite receiving accolades from the likes of Rolling Stone magazine, and six years later, the group is back for more with Beyond the Last Light. Unlike some bands that merely try to find a replacement singer who is a carbon copy of the original, DuVall's vocals bear little resemblance to Layne Staley's. But that's not to say that DuVall doesn't posses one heck of a voice, which brings to mind a more agro Ian Astbury at times, especially on such tracks as "The Last Light." Musically, Comes with the Fall certainly has a soft spot for the big riff thang (DuVall also supplies six-string in the band), as evidenced by the Kyuss-esque "Rockslide" and the Audioslave-ish "Pale Horse Rider." However, not all of Beyond the Last Light is aggressive: both "White Hot" and "Still Got a Hold on My Heart" manage to take the fury down a notch, and tread on melodic territory. Finally -- a rock band in the early 21st century that won't sound out of place on rock radio, but that you also won't be embarrassed to admit liking.
