Time can glide through a cavern or a needle;
floats over cities, their history owed to grains of sand passing.
I await time to bless me, with its magic, keeping me alive
another day, to meet the sun with open eyes…
Nothing is as far away as one minute ago-
Bishop, takes the king.
1st verse of a song (thinking of calling it “Passing” or “Hourglass”). I wrote it before bed last night— uses a quote by novelist Jim Bishop. Someone from FFFFOUND used it too. See what I did with the lyrics there, giving him lyric credit sort of? Though, I wonder what the appropriation rights are*. All of my songs are usually completely original lyrically & sonically.
* ”The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: “quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author’s observations” — so, apparently, its okay, since the following line attributes him and its for illustration purposes? Meh, its not like I’m selling this tomorrow :) I’ll find out one day, I’m sure.
