"X-Ray" as written by and Davies....
Don't be fooled by appearances,
It only shows what the world already knows
Don't rely on the physical evidence
Of what the x-ray pictures show
Because inside every straight upright citizen a tormented
Emotionally impaired psychologically damaged personality resides
And beside every crooked man stands an angel with wings
And the spirit can do truly wondrous things
As I watch the hump-backed man hobble down the high street
I say a silent prayer for myself
I was taken to the local doctor
For a consultation about my physical health
I heard him ask about my family - history
"You see, Mrs. Davies, it might be hereditary. Yes it might"
Maybe think about my family, 'cause socially could be
"You were a physical deformity"
''cause the world only sees what it believes and is revealed in the x-ray
It only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed word
Yes/But there is more in this heaven on earth
Than (what)/(what those scientists now and) is revealed on/in the x-ray
Every morning I got up and looked in the mirror to see if the hump had
Appeared on my back. To my disappointment I was not a freak.
You see, maybe there'd be side benefits to become in a cripple,
Side benefits like priority seating at football matches. And I thought
"If I'm gonna be a cripple, I'll go all the way"
They could photograph reality,
But they can't picture your fantasy
''cause the world only sees what it believes and is revealed in the x-ray
It only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed word
Yes/But there is more in this heaven on earth
Than (what)/(what those scientists now and) is revealed on/in the x-ray
''cause the world only sees what it believes and is revealed in the x-ray
It only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed word
Yes/But there is more in this heaven on earth
Than (what)/(what those scientists now and) is revealed on/in the x-ray
