BEHIND THE GLASS

First single from:
"Circus Maximus-The Modern Bloodshedding"
OUT OCTOBER 2019

“Behind the Glass”, the first single from Alice Sweet Alice’s upcoming concept album “Circus Maximus - The Modern Bloodshedding”, is a song about the mystique and mystery provided by the Internet. If we can be anyone we choose to be, what will we choose to show? What we will choose to hide?

 

What do you keep #behindtheglass?

 

LYRICS:

 

You see me moving

Hear the click of my heel

You’re infatuated

But honey I’m not real

 

CHORUS

Just a figment

Just a hope

Just a dreamer

Up in smoke

 

Rusted shine and silver frames

Perfect silhouettes facing front

You think in fantasy

Like I can give you what you want

 

You don’t know who I am

You only see what I show

This reflection here

Is the only thing you know

 

CHORUS

 

I am not your doll

Your object of desire

I am here for my own reasons

Not to fan your foolish fire

 

Before you is nothing but that

My perfect imitation

When you look behind the glass

It’s all in your imagination

 

CHORUS

 

Do you understand now?

This is what you wanted most

But if you reach out to touch me

You’ll go through me, I’m a ghost
