about

A year and half after his vocal debut, DC-based Outputmessage, aka Bernard Farley, returns with the Game Over EP. Veering away from the four-on-the-four electro house of his previous record, he employs 80s synth pop, disco, break-beat, Baltimore club, hip-hop, and even some of his old IDM stylings, covering a vast sonic territory in only six tracks. Even still, Farley's vocals take the show. Exhibiting a surprising range, from soaring falsettos to bellowing low notes, he continues to mature as a vocalist while still retaining the emotive earnestness heard on his previous work.

Track Name: Game Over
Is it game over now?
'Cause I got lost somehow
And I don't know which way to go
Or where I should turn
I need somebody here
To take away my fear
But I don't have anyone to call
I guess I should go away

Was it because I wasn't worth it
That your light didn't reach mind
Was it because I didn't deserve it
That I lost you every time

Is it game over now?
Have I already lost somehow?
'Cause I've been down this way before
And time's running out
I need somebody here
To wipe away my fear
But I don't see anyone at all
Is it time to go?

Was it because I wasn't worth it
That your light didn't reach mind
Was it because I didn't deserve it
That I lost you every time

You win
Can I start again?
(You've run out of chances)
Track Name: HOFB
I see you sitting over there
Shaking your head in despair
I know you need a shoulder to cry on
Something to rely on
When you get older and things get colder
That's why you can

Come live at my house
There's enough love for the both of us

I see you standing over there
Feeling like no one cares
I know you need a person to cry on
Someone to rely on
When you get older and things get colder
That's why you can

Come live at my house
There's enough love for the both of us

I see you standing over there
Feeling like no one cares
You need that shoulder
When things colder
You need someone to rely on
To keep that load up
To keep it going
You need someone to rely on
That's why you can

Come live at my house
There's enough love for the both of us
Track Name: House
Up in the house
DC's up in the house
DC's up in the house
Outputmessage in the house
Outputmessage in the house

I'm going to take this time right now
Tonight it's all me
I'm going to be myself tonight
I don't care what you see
I'm making the choices now
And I'm feeling the need
To let it all out
I don't care what you see

I'm going to try to let it all through
Tonight I have nothing to lose

There is hope in this house
There is power in this house
There is love in this house

You do or don't
You will or won't
I'm going to make it, yeah
Been around too long
But I'm going to be strong
Going to be myself today

I'm going to try to let it all through
Tonight I have nothing to lose

There is hope in this house
There is power in this house
There is love in this house
Track Name: Apple
You look like you've been
Hungering for something more
Than the world has given
Let's not pretend
That the thought hasn't crossed your mind
We've all striven
But been driven to the other side

I want you to take a good look
And tell me
Do you want a piece of this life
If you want it
You got it
It's for the taking
Or so they say

So you like it
But you won't even try it
If it's good than why don't you taste it
Say you want it
But I don't even buy it
Could have had it
But it's already wasted

What did you think
Would happen next?
When you walked through that door
That's what you get it

I want you to take a good look
And tell me
Do you want a piece of this life
If you want it
You got it
It's for the taking
Or so they say

And I've tried so hard
To make it to the light
But now
I don't know
If I can make it through the night

So you like it
But you won't even try it
If it's good than why don't you taste it
Say you want it
But I don't even buy it
Could have had it
But it's already wasted
Track Name: Waiting for You
I've been running from my own reflection
My eyes pointing in the wrong direction
I can face myself without you
I've been putting all of my protection
At the mercy of your discretion
I can't save myself without you

And I'm wondering why
I can't leave it alone
I can't leave it alone

I've been waiting for you
To find me
I've been waiting for you
To guide me
But all you did was mess it up
And blind me
Knocked to the bottom
From the top
I can't find me

I've been running toward my own rejection
Making choices without inspection
I can't place the blame upon you
I've made far too many exceptions
Down a path in the wrong direction
I can't say this was because of you

And I'm wondering why
I can't leave it alone
I can't leave it alone

I've been waiting for you
To find me
I've been waiting for you
To guide me
But all you did was mess it up
And blind me
Knocked to the bottom
From the top
I can't find me
Track Name: Take My Life
You've been waiting a long time
For something that might
Never come
How long will you wait here
Hoping they might
Just come around

It's time to move on
It's time that you take your life back
The way you're living is over
It's time to get on track
Put one forward
And don't you dare take a look back
That day is over
It's time to you get your life back

And you will find that
Everything you need is already there
Inside of you

And you can't
Wrap your head around it right now
But everything will be OK
It'll be OK
And you'll see
At the end of the night
Everything will be OK

It's time to move on
It's time that you take your life back
The way you're living is over
It's time to get on track
Put one forward
And don't you dare take a look back
That day is over
It's time to you get your life back

And you will find that
Everything you need is already there
Inside of you
