    I too, wanted the lyrics in the booklet. But, you guessed it; it would have been too expensive/a pain to arrange. So, we just changed the back cover so it has the song title. The duplication plant also left off the barcode, if you noticed that, heh.

    Just got the reissue and the additional song is great. Is it a leftover or a new song?

    Here's the description of it from the Myspace:
    "-Crimson Shade (composed ’04, recorded ’07, Music: Rossetti, Lyrics: Barton): Scored for 6-string guitars, bass, drum set, vocals, MIDI orchestra (strings), SATB choir (MIDI). This track is a bonus track off of The Silvery Image 2008 edition. Originally, it was written on a commission by ex-bassist Kirk, who "challenged" Gregg to write a song all in 4/4 time without changing keys, except for a few accidentals in the bridge. Interesting facts: Most of the guitars were recorded on a Gibson ES-333 semi-hollow body, and the drums are programmed."

    So you can see, it's an old song; I wrote it February 29th, 2004, so it just officially had its fourth birthday. When we were picking the songs for "The Silvery Image," this one didn't make it, mostly because there were no lyrics at the time. When Clay sends me lyrics, I always try to see if any of them fit to something I've already written before starting something new. These lyrics just happened to fit this song with very few edits.

    "When Time Fades..." has stories like this, too. Some of the songs are "leftovers" from 2003/2004, that were just too progressive/difficult for us at the time, or simply were lyric-less.

    Coolness. I never check MySpace for info like this. Bands are getting rid of their websites and keeping only MySpace pages; then you go there and you can't even find info about past albums, songs, where to order albums, etc. It's a pain. Good to see you guys giving a little more to the fans through that (evil) site. Haha.

    Looking forward to the new album! :headbang:

    Ha! I gotta go listen to that; I forgot about it. The first time I heard it I was at work. Me and my co-worker were standing around talking, so I wasn't even aware that my music had stopped. Then we start hearing voices, all quiet. We were looking around, looking out the windows, going "Who the hell is that?" Haha. Then it ended and shuffled to another song. Frickin' hidden tracks. :lol:

    I had something similar happen to me when I first got a Dream Theater fan club CD many years ago. They isolated some of the sounds from Home and made them a separate track. One day at work I was listening to that kinda loudly with headphones on and a coworker came to my desk at the wrong time and I jumped when he knocked on my wall. Scared the crap outta me.

    that wail at the end of the song is just ridiculous

    No, that's not quite the same. I didn't shit my pants this time like I did when "Things Beyond Things" ended the first time I'd heard it. :lol:
