there's not even a cardboard cut-out of a future to aim for no las vegas rising from the dust we look no more to the preacher to guide us to the milestones we can see the haze of bullshit that it was we're the first generation to believe in truth and science brought up fighting fantasy and lies so let us take careful steps now and leave for the next a foundation of tolerance and equality this spring we have a break to stop and re-evaluate all that's important in our lives and as the virus rages outside and everyone stays in to ear- mark all the bits that help us survive hoping from the dust will rise a new civilization with new measurements of value and low pay for ruling classes you laugh it off as fantasy but all i'm trying to say is without imagination we cannot dream of change
if we only had more time, the chances would come back around moments pass but once then they become mist or memories, residing in the mind they'll dim you down or light you up and when the last grain falls and you still have breath you'll stop from counting all the sand that falls away and when your eyes fill up if it's not with joy close them tight and find a dream that fits you well time can pick you up the glass-blower stretches sand 'til time has dissappeared late into the night for fear his time may pass away fill your days with fun and love and no time for regrets where loss knocks you down time can pick you up and when the last grains fall and you find you still have breath you can flip the hourglass and keep on counting or let time pick you up time can pick you up

SIDE A: April 2020 .................... 3.56
SIDE B: The Slave of The Hourglass .... 4.12

The song, "April 2020" is from future FLOATINGHOME album, possibly called "The Other Seat Was Taken". It was written during the corona pandemic in, eh, april 2020, and recorded along the train lines in Berlin as the restrictions were lifting.

The song "The Slave of the Hourglass" is a song written for the wonderful short film "Le Temps d'un Sablier" by Belgian filmmaker, Michaël de Nijs. The song features Augi Dethier playing on the drums, Simon Bèriaux singing some backing vocals and myself, aidan, doing other things you can hear that aren't background noise !
