about

Remastered for a new decade, 'Dark Waters' captures the essence of Jimmy Sky's unique approach to music. Paying homage to lo-fi garage sonics and post-punk with gritty, difficult and dissonant sounds, the songs are somehow infectious. 'C Side' production depicts a raw return to a time when demo-grade dark-rock music was all the rage.
Originally the format consisted of seven classic songs on one continuous track, the intended vinyl listening experience is preserved without losing the convenience of online streaming.
The collection exposes a metaphoric story of mental illness, social and sexual repression, debauchery, depression and eventual cathartic redemption.

1. MIRRORS

What's this fascination
With your face
It's an oscillation
In eternal space
The seed aborting
Spilling grace
There is no escaping
Anyway

As I'm breaking into shards
Pick me up and cut yourself
In this way we can be one
In the blood and pieces
Use me like a broken doll
Our romantic rock and roll
Through the vein and up the arm
I will leave you with a

Let it out
For the feeling
Isn't mutual
Like a mirror
I am no reflection
Of anything
Or anyone
But what you choose
To see

As I'm breaking into shards
Pick me up and cut yourself
Through the vein and up the arm
In the blood and pieces
Use me like a broken doll
Shattered acid rock and roll
In this way we can be one
I will leave you with a scar




2. SUSPENDERBOYS

Welcome Polly
We always knew
Dreaming of you
Being a man
And it's okay
To wear suspenders

We're so sorry
Foiled true
In our folly
Say we can
Now it's okay
To do it too

Say it's okay to play with Polly

Sorry Polly
It's all true
Good old Tommy
He's in it too
Should we meet up
Maybe make a womb

Hello Polly
We love you
And it's shocking
How much we do it
When you come
Around

Say it's okay to play with Polly



3. EVER

In the silence and the gloom
There is no one else but you
And you alone
Free at home
In the breaking of my heart
I am waiting for your part
To walk in on
The been and gone

Don't you ever walk away
Don't you ever walk away
Don't you walk away
Walk away

Well it's only just a dream
Maybe for you not for me
I'm dreaming now
Asleep in doubt
There is silence in my house
Every picture falling down
Here you start
To break my heart

Don't you ever walk away
Don't you ever walk away
Don't you walk away
Walk away

4. MY DENIAL

Can you see the world inside of me
Dying from all your lies
A cure for this can you buy that for me

A killing of the moment
A saw behind the sky
My population scattered by your anti

You will be all my denial
You will be all my denial


Until the fortress comes again
To lock me up inside
I know the reasons that you're trying for this

Your power over everything
You're like a god who died
So I will walk out on you when I've courage

You are in all my denial
You are inside my denial
You will be all my denial
You are my denial

When you can stand and you're breathing again
On that day I'll pretend that our love will be here
Till the end
I'll defend where you sleep
But the moment you wake to the sun
I'll be gone

So lie here in the coffin
Tell me its all alright
Tell me you love me darling buy that for me
I know the heart is empty
I know its you alright
I know that everything was lies before this


You are in all my denial
You are inside my denial
You will be all all my denial
You are my denial



5. REVELATIONS
I have seen the light
It took me half my life
To fall down here
To kneel before you
I didn't see you come
But I know you're still
Feeling me
Lover

Dear I'm waiting
For your poison in my mouth
The revelations out
Tell me you believe
This cross you nail me on
Is gonna save your soul
Lover


Tell me how you know
The slivers that you give
Will turn me on
No need to touch you
Control is in the flow
So this is what you deal
A lonely soul
Lover

Dear I'm waiting
For your poison in my mouth
The revelations out
Tell me you believe
This cross you nail me on
Is gonna save your soul
Lover

Stare into my eyes
You know our real lives
We're only just beginning
Now

Dear I'm waiting
For your poison in my mouth
The revelations out
Tell me you believe
This cross you nail me on
Is gonna save your soul
All my failings
All your mastery of doubt
No hesitating now
Only we believe
This cross you nail me on
Is gonna save our souls
Lover



6. WHISPERS OF COLD AND STONE

I will fall
Waiting for you
Through cold and stone
Wailing for you
I will go
Away from you
Only to become
Wind for you

All your seas are part of me and I can't go
All the time escaping me the falling snow
Would that I could burst out into song and show
The glimmering of all the things I feel for you
Would that all my heart strings could be broke in two

I will fall
Waiting for you
Through cold and stone
Wailing for you
I will go
Away from you
Only to become
Wind for you

There's too much of what I want to say
And all the little people on your grave
Well they know nothing of the life you gave
And how you nurtured me to be this way
Now before I close the door I'll pray
That you will be with me for one more day

I will fall
Waiting for you
Through cold and stone
Wailing for you
I will go
Away from you
Only to become
Wind for you



7. THE RESURRECTION


Into the furnace of regret falls your ever after
With this the loss of all your kin seems like no disaster
Time is nothing when you're left with nothing more to master
So listen unto what they said the last time you were higher

Into the mourning there you roam no-one stays to take you home
All to the dawning of desire they will be waiting on you
Until you walk alone with more knowing what you run from
There'll be no resurrection

Here's silence and dismay you are not the fire
Unto the mourners you will be just another liar
If someone else could help you they would appear anile
Only one thing left for you the pain of cold denial

Into the mourning there you roam no-one stays to take you home
All to the dawning of desire they will be waiting on you
Until you walk alone with more knowing what you run from
There'll be no resurrection

To what kind of world have we given birth
Where demons grieve for God
To what kind of world have we given birth
Where demons bleed for God

Into the mourning there you roam no-one stays to take you home
All to the dawning of desire they will be waiting on you
When the sun is in your face and if you hide beyond disgrace
When they leave you on the shore you will never love no more
Until the resurrection
