about

'Fading Shadows'' marks part six on the 'C Side' re-release journey.

Returning to previous themes of metaphoric iconography, catharsis through struggle and skewed romance, this collection rambles through a variety of sonic styles. Big drums, soft piano, epic guitar solos, acoustic sweetness and old time harmonies appear in a diverse miscellany of sound. Each track has been remastered while peaks, hiss and live errors are retained for an authentic garage experience.

As with previous 'C Side' titles, the story is woven across seven songs, presented on a single continuous track. Much of the material draws on periods of extreme emotional turmoil, a beneficial energy for the subject matter. While 'Fading Shadows' touches on both universal and internal questions, each song stands alone as an autobiographical portrait told through poetic device and external inspiration.

This compilation features new and old songs, as well as antique and modern instrumentation. An odyssey of rough, sweet, dour and upbeat, 'C Side Volume 6' is a unique window into the heart of a crazy artist.

Track Name: C Side Volume 6 - Fading Shadows - Side 1
1. HELL

I loved my big throne
To sit on all alone
I was lord of hell

Then you flew on in
A fairy on the wind
LIt up all my hallways

This angel in my home
This angel at my door
Made me lose my loneliness

My lovers left me
Godless and ghostly
Heaven descended



But I'm glad you're leaving darling
These demons couldn't handle you here
We're glad you're leaving darling
My demons die but don't disappear
They're glad you're leaving darling
Cause no one wants to see my disease
We're glad you're leaving darling
Cause heaven makes me die on my knees

And angels made me bleed


Your tears were so bright
A child of pure light
Scattered all my people

Part of a big scene
Delivered my dreams
Full of future promises

There on the bed sheets
How well you did bleed
Shocked me out of plain sight

Under my black wing
Softened a mad king
And left me there to suffer


I'm glad you're leaving darling
These demons couldn't handle you here
We're glad you're leaving darling
My demons die but don't disappear
They're glad you're leaving darling
Cause no one wants to see my disease
We're glad you're leaving darling
Cause heaven makes me die on my knees

And angels made me bleed




2. THE WEAKER SEX

I won't fight for you
I'm not that type
I don't stand a chance
Against the meaner ones in life
Tell my lies
Pretend I'm careless
Fearless darkness
My coward light
Scared to death of everyone

I wish I had your strength
I wish I had your strength

Tell my sight
To see a better day at night
While you decide directions
With your secret heart fight
I'm not alright
Despite contrary affirmations
When you sigh
Another's name
It just might break me

I wish I had your strength
I wish I had your strength
I wish I had your strength
I wish I had your strength
I wish I had your strength
I wish I had your strength

Baby put your pistols away
Hold my shadow pieces of me
Anger and despair are just a phase
And they fade
And they fade
And they fade



3. EAVES AND BOUGHS

Hey come and stay
Lie here with me

The misty mountains
Not your lover today

Hopelessly
Stare into me

In this doorway
We are never afraid

I won't be the one who ran away
We will never speak of it again
Hold me like you mean the things you say
Ferocious beautiful and ever strange

Gone tragedy
Love is our key

Never see
Another tear again
Never again

I won't be the one who ran away
We will never speak of it again
Hold me like you mean the things you say
Ferocious beautiful and ever strange



4. SMOKE

Dawn gave me grieving
A blizzard ablaze
Bombshells a'burning
Too little too late
For yonder my lover
Already round the bend

So I begged her
Would you remain my friend

For our smoke seems to linger
On houses and trains
Diamonds are duller
When the fire blows away
And no two shone dearer
Than we two engaged

So I beg you
Remain my friend

And if you never loved me
Would you be my friend
And if you'll never love me
Would you be friend
And if you'd never love me
Would you be my friend
And you never love me
Would you be me friend

5. EVERY RAINBOW


Clap your hands as the story is ending
Come on out come on out tell me what I missed
Will the fires in the night show me where to go
And the streetlights as I walk overload
There's a mountain in my distance
I'm never gonna scale it I'm too chicken
Tell me now was my heart too wholesome
Did I give it too much to the wrong one

Is every rainbow
Grey now grey now
Hey now hey now hey now hey now
And every rainbow
Is grey now grey now
Hey now hey now hey now hey now
All my love died out in tomorrow
Tomorrow tomorrow

Hear the voice on the end of the line click
Quiet now quiet now got to hear this
We deny for the future there's another way
Got you back over now but you won't stay
In the vines and roses waiting
Cage of clay sits slowly ageing
Almost killed myself to be the one worthy
Now I'm the mountain and you're the journey

Not every rainbow
Is grey now grey now
Hey now hey now hey now hey now
Not every rainbow
Is grey now grey now
Hey now hey now hey now hey now
All my love died out in tomorrow

Feels tomorrow
Feels tomorrow
Fields of tomorrow
Fields of tomorrow

Not every rainbow
Is grey now grey now
Hey now hey now hey now hey now
And every rainbow
Is grey now grey now
Hey now hey now hey now hey now
Your love don't have to die out in tomorrow



6. MISS MY MISS

You said you loved me
Then stuck the knife in
Maybe I deserved that
I said I loved you
Then went on right through
Behind your back
You said you missed me
Then spent our anniversary
With another man
I would have loved you
But my brain was missing a screw
Never got that helping hand

Will you think of me
When everybody
Says it's for the best
Well I miss my Miss
Will you think of me
Will everybody
Smile and follow fate
Say I can't manipulate you
Anymore

You cry for recall
Say nobody should know
But everyone hears my sin
I'm confrontational
Emotional unreasonable
A big mouth to stick my foot in
So it's pretty fucking easy
To make me feel uneasy
To blame and shame me quietly
Will all your friends and family

Think of me
When everybody
Says it's for the best
Well I miss my Miss
Will you think of me
When everybody
Smile and follows fate
Says he can't manipulate you
Anymore

No one is to blame my dear
No one is to blame my dear
No one is to blame my dear
Why the fuck is simple pain
So hard for people to explain

Will you think of me
When everybody
Says it's for the best
Well I miss my Miss
Will you think of me
When everybody
Smile and follows fate
Says he can't manipulate you
Anymore



7. SHELTER

There's a crimson cloud in the sky
And it 's waiting for somewhere else to cry
Does it surprise we're one with the sky
Does it shock you it's one with our lives

Did your dreams
Bring you shelter
Did your dreams
Give you shelter

Will you sigh
Will you cry
As I place my heart and hands
Inside
Will you sigh
As we die
Say we're crazy
Tonight
Into your fire
Into this pyre
I will place my soul
Entire
You won't cry
You won't sigh
Just say I'm crazy
Say goodbye

Did your dreams
Bring you shelter
Did your dreams
Give you shelter

There's a rainstorm a cliche brace
For we who stand here to wash and stain the face
Could we confide in water's falling grace
Could we decide in fire there's no trace

Did your dreams
Bring you shelter
Did your dreams
Give you shelter

Will you sigh
Will you cry
As I place my heart and hands
Inside
Will you sigh
As we die
Say we're crazy
Tonight
Into your fire
Into this pyre
I will place my soul
Entire
You won't cry
You won't sigh
Just say I'm crazy
Say goodbye

Will you sigh
Will you cry
As I place my heart and hands
Inside
Will you smile
As we cry
Say I'm crazy
Say goodbye
