Castles Made of Sand
by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Down the street you can hear her scream
"You're a disgrace"
As she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside
And all the neighbors start to gossip and drool
He cries "Oh girl, you must be mad
What happened to the sweet love you and me had?"
Against the door he leans and starts a scene
But his tears fall and burn the garden green

And so castles made of sand
Fall in the sea eventually

An Indian brave, who before he was ten
Played war games in the woods with his Indian friends
And he built a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fearless warrior Indian chief
Many moons passed and the dream grew strong until tomorrow
He would sing his first war song
And fight his first battle but something went wrong
Surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

And some castles made of sand
Fall in the sea eventually
Take it Johnny

There was a young girl whose heart was a frown
Because she was crippled for life and couldn't speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop living
So she decided to die
She drew her wheel chair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled
"You won't hurt me no more"
But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say
"Look a golden winged ship is passing my way"
But it really didn't have to stop
It just kept on going

And some castles made of sand
Slips into the sea eventually

Set to 1.25x for Hendrix speed.

Keen James

It just shows how shitty and lifeless the drums are compared to the experience. It sounds cookie cutter and low energy.
