lyrics

From high in your tower, can you see everything?
Disappearing is easy when you are not a king.
See me, don’t see me, I don’t care anymore.
This is my freedom:
My feet on the floor, walk away.

In the gallery glare, there you are on display,
A perfect illusion, in perfect disarray.
The walls they are mirrors; the walls they recede—
Out beyond your reflection
Will anyone heed what you say?

I may be nameless, if anyone asks—
I may be faceless, but I wear no masks.
I may be tarnished, but I am real.
Bright costume jewellery may have more appeal,
May shine for an hour, may shine for a day,
But the shining is false, and it will fade away.

If I asked for the truth,
You would paint me a sky
Where the shadows of seagulls on crimson glide by;
A sunset, on sands of eternal July—
Held aloft on the wings of a white butterfly.
You would speak not one word that isn’t a lie,
But impossible beauty, I would never deny.
