Here's a demo version the latest song I've been working on. It should be considered a rough draft, but I'd appreciate feedback on the lyrics, the theology, and the music. The “guitar solo” should be treated as a placeholder – in fact, it should be described as a “'guitar' solo” since no actual guitars feature in this recording, although I hope it isn't obvious unless I tell you!
Here are the lyrics (apologies if the formatting was messed up when you first tried to read them):
House of Mirrors
You made us in your imageAnd we've returned the favorEvery kind of peopleWith gods of every flavorWe see ourselves in a mirror darklyWe think we're looking at youHelp us to see beyond our reflectionsA glimmer of what is trueCHORUSWe all live in a house of mirrorsWe think we're finding our wayAm I your image, are you my likeness?In this house of mirrorsLord, I seek your faceWe blame you for our angerWe think you hate who we hateSuch a disturbing comfortTo see our fears incarnateMake me translucent to your transcendenceA window for your lightNot just projecting on you my failuresHiding you from sightCHORUSWe don't escape from this maze we wanderWe never manage to seeStill there's your voice in the distance, calling,“Come and follow me”CHORUSCHORUS(Last line: Help me find my way)In this house of mirrorsIn this house of mirrorsIn this house of mirrors
In this house of mirrors
