about

Self-recorded demo version of another track to be added to the upcoming M.D. Edwards album, entitled 'phase\transition', due late 2015.

lyrics

Between the smoke and the mirrors / this is a disappearing act
And invoking my fears is precursor to its habitat
I'll pull a rabbit out my hat / like magic / and an ace out my sleeve
And sing the incantation / you want to believe so desperately [so desperately so]

[sing:] Lord I was pretty / pretty as a bird / Lord I was frightened to walk this ugly earth
All of my belonging to this tired world / Just rained down on the inside

So pick a card / any card now / have a look / put it back
Be my volunteer even if I just saw you in half / in half
I was walking on coals till I just got cold feet
And I was swallowing swords while I was just lost for speech / for speech / for speech [so desperately so]

City within a city / I was mayor for a day
And the streets never looked so pretty / Until I resigned and it decayed
Into a world within a world / A river in the sea
Subatomic particles containing galaxies
Mother Earth could give birth tonight / I saw an acorn breaking from a tree inside
Solar flare and lunar tide / A life allowed and a life denied...

Between the smoke and the mirrors / this is a disappearing act
And invoking my fears is precursor to its habitat
I'll pull a rabbit out my hat / like magic / and an ace out my sleeve
And sing the incantation / you want to believe so desperately / so desperately so

[sing:] Lord I was pretty / pretty as a bird / Lord I was frightened to walk this ugly earth
All of my belonging to this tired world / Just rained down on the inside
Lord I was pretty / pretty as they came / Lord I was frightened I would never look the same again
And everybody knew me as a beauty till the day / It rained down on the inside
So Lord I'm still pretty / pretty as a bird / and I can walk the earth an angel and be misunderstood
If to live amongst the darkness is to brighten up a room / I'll rain down on the inside / so desperately so
