about

'Sinking Ships' is the second chapter in the 'C Side' rerelease story. This collection marks the shift from from gritty post-punk and metal to softer sounds. Homage production styles and dark undertones remain, but this time the punk metal ethic is replaced by subtler sonics.
Revisited and remastered for a new decade, 'Sinking Ships' tells a garage rock tale of deep emotional suffering and eventual catharsis. With seven more songs, originally presented on one seamless track, the tradition of digitised vinyl experience continues. Collectively the songs represent a solitary journey across the first decade of twenty first century rock and roll, seen through the eyes of homage-obsessed pop poetry.
From singular metaphor to track title ordering, the meaning of the work is multi-layered. See if you can decipher the many stories hidden in the musical tapestry of 'Sinking Ships'.

The BandCamp version presents 'Sinking Ships' on three sides.

1. IN THE DARK

I will kiss you like a baby
If you'll be my baby
And I will only
I will only touch you in the dark

You will come and be my daughter
If you really wanna
And I will only
I will only touch you in the dark
You tell me that you love me
I will let you love me
And I will make you wetter than the rain outside my door

Lalololololololalololololololalolololololo
I will only touch you in the dark
Lalololololololalolololololo
I will only
I will only touch you in the dark

And when everything is over
If you are still my lover
I will only
I will only touch you in the dark

Tell me that you think I'm crazy
When we're high and hazy
And I will love you like you've never held onto a man
You wanna make it better
When I'm in your sweater
And I will only
I will only touch you in the dark

Lalololololololalololololololalolololololo
I will only touch you in the dark
Lalololololololalolololololo
I will only
I will only touch you in the dark




2. SHATTERHEART

I am swimming in your eyes
Feathers in your head
Grey is fitting in this whole demise
I won't be the one who never tried

Free my heart
Free my soul
But don't ever let me go
Hold me close
When we make love
And don't wake me if it's over
If love is pain
Then you are God
And God is love and we are hopeless
This shatterheart
Just like dust
You won't fix me when I'm broken

I can see it in your mind
Acid on your breath
Growing talons to watch me die
You were always better at this game

Free my heart
Free my soul
But don't ever let me go
Hold me close
When we make love
And don't wake me if it's over
If love is pain
Then you are God
And God is love and we are hopeless
This shatterheart
Just like dust
You won't fix me when I'm broken




3. RAMBLING & IGNORANT

Lies you won't remember
Lies you won't recall

You never hold me up
You'd never be my crutch
You pushed me down
Held me under

Fire fire fire fire
It's burning down your life
It's burning us alive

Lies
Your still refusal
Hold me down
Suffocate my numbers

You never help me up
You always break my trust
Your push me down
Hold me under

Fire fire fire fire
Fire fire fire fire
It's burning down your life
It's burning us alive
It's burning down your life
It's burning us alive

4. FORSAKE ME NOT

Why
The pain you put me through
This agony
This trial
What have I done to you
Why
Won't you let me come on home
Why
Won't you take me now

Forsake me not
Desperately I'm yours
Dying on all fours
Set me free today

I have seen what comes
I am not damned or done
No lake of fire holds a place for me
Only darkness wandering
I see

Forsake me not
Desperately I am yours
Dying on all fours
Set me free today



5. GAMES OF HIDE & SEEK

In this chapel
Blackened charred and spent
Lies a body aching
Metaphoric
For the way I feel
Taken by another

I cry again
I die again
Why this lie
Is it just a game
I don't want to play
I cry again
And my soul darkens

In this graveyard
There's a parthenon
There we're lying talking
Doesn't matter
All the feelings gone
Severed heart remaining

I cry again
I die again
Why this lie
Is it just a game
I don't want to play
I cry again
And my soul darkens

6. QUIETLY

Don't mind me
I'm quietly
Falling apart
With you

Don't mind me
I am silently dying
With love
For you

Shadows underneath your fingertips
Tracing out your lips
Fears circling down your cheeks
In lines of murky darkness
A feather mark of blusher
And a muddy coloured rose
But it's all okay
If you think of it that way

Don't mind me
I'm quietly
Falling apart
With you

Don't mind me
I am silently dying
With love
For you

No shutting it in
Hair aflame with your sin
You only begin
To maybe frame a little smile

Don't mind me
Silently
Falling apart
With you

Don't mind me
I am quietly dying
With love
For you




7. BETTER

I'm going pro
Anorexia
I'm going to be better
Higher than everyone
I will be thinner
Much more beautiful

I'm going pro
I will be beautiful
I'm going pro
So I can be beautiful

I'm so much better
Now I can see myself
I feel I'm floating
High up against the storm
I'm just like Jesus
Showing the way to go

I'm going pro
I will be beautiful
I'm going pro
So I can be beautiful
I'm going pro
So I can be beaufitul


I'm goin pro
And I will be beautiful
I'm goin pro
So I can be beautiful
I'm goin pro
And I will be beautiful
I'm goin pro
So I can be beautiful
