about

First listen to a new track from the forthcoming, as yet untitled, second album by 7shades.

This one's about people who moan unnecessarily about their lives, but then don't do anything about it, which is pretty much everyone actually, including me. Or, take the positivist view and just say that it's about having opportunities for self-improvement, which you may or may not grab, depending. I don't really mind.

This one probably owes as much to Daevid Allen as it does Tim Smith, hope he's glidding well wherever he has ended up...

lyrics

One step forward, nine steps back
Never find the dreams you lack
Every day a mountain steep
Enough to make a grown up weep

Wellllllll…

Take another look at your life it’s not so hard
The change can happen, and it will, if you drop your guard
Don’t pay no heed to other folk who tell you no go
‘Cos their advice is based on years of being so so

In case you missed the meeting
Don’t need your constant bleating
There’s plenty who are worse off
While you sit there and jerk off

Yeahhhhhhhhhh…

Take another look at your life it’s not so hard
The change can happen, and it will, if you drop your guard
Don’t pay no heed to other folk who tell you no go
‘Cos their advice is based on years of being so so

There’s nothing gained from marking time except a dull ache
The feeling like you missed the boat you knew you could take
But every day another way to change your habits
And some might say it doesn’t pay to know your limits

So now you see the option
To staying in the rat run
Don’t make the same mistake twice
Or you might pay a high price

Soooooooooo…


Take another look at your life it’s not so hard
The change can happen, and it will, if you drop your guard
Don’t pay no heed to other folk who tell you no go
‘Cos their advice is based on years of being so so

There’s nothing gained from marking time except a dull ache
The feeling like you missed the boat you knew you could take
But every day another way to change your habits
And some might say it doesn’t pay to know your limits

Perhaps a fool might rush to fill that angel’s footsteps
So make your own path cos you know it’s not that complex
And words are cheap, but so is life, if you don’t live it
Don’t reach the end and realize that you weren’t in it

about

7shades Hereford, UK

Originally formed in 2013 to pay tribute to the music of Tim Smith and Cardiacs, by playing music that aims to capture some of their unique (and much-missed) spirit. Psychedelic, punk, prog & pop in roughly equal measures, and taking in many other influences en route, it should appeal to anyone with a love for unusual music played with conviction by people who really should know better! ... more
