This is an experimental all-vocals song I wrote and recorded in Washington DC during the Madhouse days. This is the only recording that exists of this. It was my first real foray into the kinds of music I would do in Faith and the Muse, in pieces such as "Iago's Demise" and "Chorus of the Furies"...

Listening to this so many years later, I love the build-up of harmonies as it continues. Enjoy!


WINDOWS (1986)

Hiding inside your pain of glass...

I look at you through my friends' eyes
And see a House with 100 Windows
Each pane of glass is your canvas
In which you paint a separate image of yourself

Each different window is a separate picture
For each separate person to see

Windows open, Windows broken
Windows painted, Windows faded
Windows frozen, Windows broken

Why is it only me that sees the real you
A crouched, broken figure hiding inside
Praying your windows won't break
