This is yet another story, this time with http://soundcloud.com/ghost-science on the neat production, adding one more piece to my world of worldwide collaborations. And a nice piece indeed. Watch out if ever you happen to find the book of sand ! ~ And yes, whoever has read Jorge Luis Borges will obviously understand the initial inspiration. ;) LYRICS Book of Sand VERSE 1 : You are in the public library for the first time in many years In front of you are shelves covered with dust and books of many sizes You are walking and your footsteps are so loud you end up blocking your ears With your hands. Suddenly, on top of a shelf, a book arises It falls down at your feet and you pick it up while looking around you You're alone and with a curious smile your fingers caress its cover You flip the pages, one by one at first, then you're swiftly running through When you realize you can't reach the last page. In fact this book will never be over. Jump forward, it's late at night and the electricity has been cut again You're left with yourself for only company, no Facebook, no stupid football game And you light so many candles your home looks like a viking's wedding Right here, right now, you so wish you could be in Thailand like David Carradine, So you pour yourself another drink and get ready to call it an early night Despised the fact you're not sleepy, you feel peaceful surrounded by candlelight And you're not really sure if it's the alcohol or you if you already started dreaming But all of a sudden you are sitting on your sofa with that book and you're reading CHORUS : If you don't know what never sleeps, well, soon you will You're gonna feel just like the man who invented the wheel You can reach another level of what we call 'real' But your mind is set only on fame and dollar bill (bis) VERSE 2 : You spend a few hours reading sentences that don't make no sense Your eyes are dry, your brain's bleeding : this book is a war dance Tensed like a human hope on the day of Armageddon Prouder than an Amerindian busted for illegal arrhythmia The page numbers are so random it feels like a Lady Gaga song Play it in reverse to reveal the real potential of your mind and check if it's strong Enough, or if it's wrong enough To handle all the lies that are coming off Truth is a sweet thing but when it's wearing off It's more sour than a beef stroganoff CHORUS : If you don't know what never sleeps, well, soon you will You're gonna feel just like the man who invented the wheel You can reach another level of what we call 'real' But your mind is set only on fame and dollar bills (bis) VERSE 3 : How many years has it been ? How many decades did you miss out ? Looking at yourself in the mirror you wonder if you were blissed out Or is the pain so sympathetic it elopes with you and pretend to care When really, all you ever wanted to do was to sell that book, be a millionaire But you're hooked like the captain who will never abandon his ship You're clenching the book, it's your precious, it's your one and only real friendship Even though it makes your skin so pale, you never wanna let it go There's no rehab available for the fascination of a mental placebo So you quit your job and you quit your dreams of swimming in money like Uncle Scrooge You decided to give your life to this book even though it made you a stooge But you don't care, you have something nobody ever had and you love the exclusivity You feel like Einstein must have felt when he found the theory of relativity It's a gift and a curse that occurs only to the gifted ones The book of sand is who you are and you are not who you were once Human lost in greed and material concerns Become the ghost in the science for it's the only one who learns CHORUS : If you don't know what never sleeps, well, soon you will You're gonna feel just like the man who invented the wheel You can reach another level of what we call 'real' But your mind is set only on fame and dollar bills (bis)
