The THIRD track from the back catalogue is:
‘disappearing man 2’
[from the album hexagonal, 2010]
There are two versions of ‘disappearing man’ on ‘hexagonal’ (one of the ‘group of 5′ recordings). This is the second version that closes the record. An extremely personal song, it is an admission of one’s inability to deal with even the most benign social interaction without feeling trapped, empty, lonely and angry. It is also about addiction.
On a musical note, I really enjoy the pause and shift to the instrumental epilogue.
Produced, composed, performed & mixed by brilliantfish
Mastered by Ray Montford
he sits in the back with a broken hand
waiting to fold is the Disappearing Man
in the glare and the gloom there’s a half-baked plan
talking to the death with the Disappearing Man
he got a cold cold comfort and a basement tan
lost in space is the Disappearing Man
in the Cafe Apathetique is the last stand
put your hands together for the Disappearing Man
the dreams they come
i’m wide awake
the shattering of days
i lose my head
over and over again
what message do i send form the Disappearing Man?
with a word and a match he destroys what he can
walking away is the Disappearing Man
