about

Maid Of The Grey
A fog filled dreamscape and lyrical trip through some dark recesses of the mind. I still don’t know what this one is actually about, but the dragon’s breath of the ‘spell of the making’ from Excalibur and Medusa are both involved as is the unseen thing that lurks. Colour is absent in dream fog and everything is monochrome. Faster and crunchier than the 45rpm single version. Recorded at Seed Studios and Bryn Elwy

lyrics

Maid Of The Grey

Intangible; ephemeral, she’s moving in white mist of mildew
Beckoning, she calls you in, the soft soft cloud, but will you?
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey,
Maid of the grey

Step into the swirling breath and draw down deep the damp miasma
See her looming in the fret, coiling tendrils whirl around her
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey

You see her, but not now you see her and she fades away
You see her and she fades away
She fades away
She fades

From phantoms grey stone granite forms as Medusa turns her head
And holds her gaze while serpents writhe; where has the future fled?
Monochrome girl – carved out of the grey
Monochrome girl
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey, maid of the grey
Maid of the grey
