lyrics

Pretend that you’re not in the zoo; pretend that everyone’s not looking at you. Pretend that you’re a wallowing fool; pretend he doesn’t make your tongue hang and drool.
And when it rains, it always will keep underwater, lie very still
Pretend that you are not alone; pretend that you’re a fat circus clown. Cartwheel around the spit-sawdust ring; pretend when you fall, you don’t feel a thing.
And when it rains, it always will keep underwater, lie very still.
Pretend that you quite like the life; pretend that it’s you who’s holding the knife. Pretend it’s not the final straw and what you’ve ended up with, it’s not what you thought.
And when it rains, it always will keep underwater, lie very still and when you fall it’s like you’re flying lie in a sprawl, you’re singing, not crying.

about

Mary and the Pigeons Dublin, Ireland

Mary and The Pigeons are a band hatched by writer and cellist Mary Barnecutt (me) with the aid of my lovely, assorted instrumental friends. Into Air combines my interest in folk music, poetry and an acoustic, minimalist string sound.
