lyrics

They’ve altered the days and rendered the nights unrecognisable. The sky’s out of phase there’s moon dust all over the kitchen table.
They’ve cut the lights, drawn down the blinds let run a riot different kinds of mice the windows liquidised and poured away. They’ve put the doors into the loft
hung out a necklace of raindrops strung out around a dog that barks into an empty jar.
They’ve taken all the days and rendered them all extraordinary. The horizons astray, it walks on it’s hands that bend back slowly.
The family pictures, illuminated staring out at consecrated candles witching throw the shadows cower and submit.
The attic’s jumping with the vermin,
bats are singing unread hymns the garden gates are swing-shut closed to never let you out.
They’ve taken all the days and rendered the nights unrecognisable. The sky’s out of phase there’s moon dust all over the kitchen table.
They’ve gotten hold of all your diaries broadcast all your demons and faeries laughed until the thunder clapped and took a sweeping bow.
They’ve left the papers rotting under garden trees in strung up bundles, meant to burn but only telling rain their news.
They’ve altered the days and rendered the nights away, gone from you.

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.
