Too Far Gone

Album: Everyday Demons (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Cormac Neeson (from Kerrang! February 21, 2009): "The lyrics came into my head back when (then British Prime Minister) Tony Blair and his boys were talking about introducing these ID cards they've been talking about for a while. And I remember just thinking what the f—k is this all about, they might as well attach tracking devices on to everybody so they know exactly where everybody's going at every moment of the day."
  • The Answer were the opening act for AC/DC's Black Ice World Tour in Europe and the Australian legends were evidently in Neeson's mind when he commented: "The riff is probably one of the strongest riffs on the album and any AC/DC comparisons are welcome!"
