about

magician's hat: digital representations of $ streams have a way of magically appearing and disappearing with the slight of the hand, they pile up as housing, and combust into toxic assets.

lyrics

watch the hand
disappear
a magic act
i can nearly see the trick

slight of the hand
distracts
look away
i can nearly see the trick

suspend the disbelief
look the other way
takes the wallet
from your pocket

eyes and ears covered
covered up
seeings believing
can we buy in?

tiny paper houses
thrown into the sea
nothing for you
and nothing for me
yeah i see the bottom
of the magician's hat
it's dark and black
colored like an oil slick
the pig has gone to market
they say "don't buy in"

they say: "it can't be true", but i can see it for myself
