Song Description

The portrait of a self-accepted exile in a witness "protection" program, sequestered in a remote, snowy confine. The narrator is safe but the locale is bleak, lonely and isolated. No creature- comforts, almost a prison itself. The price of safety is livin

Story Behind the Song

In early 1996 I had just bought what was then the state-of-the-art keyboard workstation: the Korg Trinity. It was the first time I ever used a sequencer in a keyboard, and this song was the first I had undertaken on the new machine. I had the basic piano,

Lyrics

Oh, fatal knowledge
With you I share my bed
I'm the man who knew too much
A price upon his head

For my own protection,
I was told I had to go
Made a deal to turn my back
And headed for the snow

Chorus:
Out on the edge of nowhere
What do you have to lose?
Out on the edge of nowhere
An offer you can't refuse
Out on the edge of nowhere
What is there left to choose?

Except the silence
And I accepted silence as paid dues

No dog-sled driver
No room without a view
No morning paper
Just the black and white and blue

Cast my thoughts into the wind
And hope they get to you?

Out on the edge of nowhere
A ?Fortress of Solitude?
Out on the edge of nowhere
A feeling of loss renewed
Out on the edge of nowhere
One moment of gratitude

Has bought my silence
The chance of violence now subdued

Let the mountains inspire me
A witness in the country
Try to laugh at the irony
Of hiding out while guilty men run free

Forced isolation
The order of the day
Like a ship, horizon-bound
I just seem to fade away
Dreamed of home a thousand times
But for now, I'm here to stay

Out on the edge of nowhere
Day after day?s the same
Out on the edge of nowhere
Your life is a waiting game
Out on the edge of nowhere
Nobody knows the name you use

Except the silence
I accept the silence of paid dues

Out on the edge of nowhere
What do you have to lose?
Out on the edge of nowhere
An offer you can't refuse
Out on the edge of nowhere
What is there left to choose?

Except the silence
I accept the silence of paid dues
