Shifting Mirrors Teaser: The Big Fade Away Part II – Fade

This is where the heartache becomes heartburn, tearing you apart and leaving nothing in its wake standing…

Quite a harsh song. Whereas originally I was rather calm and exploring the sadness of the broken relationship, with the rewriting I found that I so much anger inside of me that letting it out was the only way. ‘Fade’ ( previously known as ‘Fading Sounds’) begins in a loud fashion, which is a bit of a departure in comparison to the other music on ‘Shifting Mirrors’. It’s the wake up call, sounding in more of the story. This is the exorcism of the agony…

Fade
——
II: Fade ( R.d.G)

Along the lines of something forgotten
I view the scenes that make me cry
Recalling the words you said to me
as I try to figure out the why

Break my spine and throw me away
Deny your faults and live another day
Weep like a child of a wolf to the referee
Until a man to you I’ll never be

( Chorus)
Typed out across the screen
Words left to be seen
Impact imminent for a crash
Holding out against the backlash
These are things for which I’m not made
I’m slowly losing touch, I’m beginning to fade

Along the lines of something old
I see what remains of the past
As no matter how much I try
You made an effort to make it last

Steal my heart, put a knife in the back
Unleash your lies and dodge all the flack
Speak your words and ignore little me
Until I fade from sight to see

( Chorus)

Was I just some entertainment
A quiet fuck you made to crawl
Failing to make an argument
As I stand here against the wall

Tell me why you made me fall…

( Solo)

Along the lines of all I wrote
and all I dared not try
Now with all this honor bestowed on you
Even now, I still don’t know why…
