“Fake Pearls” is a song about jewelry. This is another one of those songs that started out as a chorus:
So open up your heart and sing with me
All you missing pieces and broken jewelry.
This world will never yield, it’s too damn tough.
But I cut and I shine like a diamond in the rough.
Pretend you are a string of cheap, fake pearls: Where did you come from? What are you made of? What do you see? What things do you experience? Are you jealous of better, more expensive jewelry?
The arrangement and strings are courtesy of Andrew “The Mighty” McGregor. Andy also created an alternative mix which I released along with a demo version on limited 7". The 7''s are gone but you can still download it here!
