The wonderful legend of sliding rocks / Paroles

1. Legend

A nomad Indian tribe
Some thousand years ago
Had to escape its beautiful land
Once more…

They went through an arid and smooth place

Before reaching the end of their long trip
Everybody perished

Men, Women and Children had been captured
And swallowed by huge stones

Prisoners, their spirit sometimes succeeded their escape
Calling for help to living people
Like phantoms out of time

These Indians talk to us still today
We can see it through strange traces of sliding rocks
Some trails are short, some long, some straight or curvy
But no one has ever seen stones move…

2. Night visions

Heat, white heat, burning my neck, drying my hands
Plain, flat plain, out of nowhere, lost in the sands

Watching the stones, sliding alone
I can't leave my eyes, I'm hypnotised
I feel myself attracted, deaf and blinded, rocks moving to me

Quiet, so quiet, heavy silence, surrounding space
Light, so bright, filling my eyes, painting my face

Watching the stones, sliding alone
The contact is near, it seems so clear
I feel myself attracted, deaf and blinded, rocks moving to me

But when we are so close, when I can almost burn
My dream slips away with morning sun

What does it mean? Why do I never reach the end?
Doctor can't you help myself to read inside my head?
It turns to obsession, torturing my soul, from day to day
I only need an answer, please show me the way...

I can't understand that happens to me
I try to explain what it seems to be

3. Collective dream

We are in Europe in the middle of the night
Jenny has strange dreams so exciting
Big rocks are moving to her, sky without moon and stars
No home no human beings
What she thought dreaming, can be so strong
To move rocks and let long tracks?
Something deep inside, she feels it close, perceves her body marks

She wants, going to the rocks to understand

Being face to face with them, would maybe allow to explain
The reason of the night movement
She feels so much fragile, she can't sleep with the obsession
Being from this nightmare dependant

To be better, she decides the trip, to find again peace and harmony

In Rio de Janeiro, Tom's living carnival
At rhythm of Samba and beers
Hot but light atmosphere, he's dancing in the street
Everyone is friend and hears
That music in the air, unlike dreadfull creatures, sudden black apparition
Are they looking at him? He feels like their own prey?
Shining glances, they're drawing to him

The shadows of the night, have frozen all his blood
And let him shiver and shake
Tom sets in motion, he needs to know what it really happens
After some strange dreams, he looks for the place and knows the reasons

Shalima is a girl, in Bengali
As the other dreamers, reality
Takes a deep fright at her, she is so young
Can not mastering, her doubt and emotion

She needs a therapy, right trip finding
Where she's sure of the place, the good meeting
She wants to be free, no one but her Gods
In life and her dreams, finding much more than odds

Spoken : She really wants to escape from her frightens and night visions
She needs to meet what she beleives to be true
Just to understand the reason of that never ending obsession
To make an end with the nightmare of her whole life

Death Valley, she's coming alone
She can see, flat plain and lonely stones

4. Introspection

Focusing all your strange dreams, trying to know where can you go
Everything you had ever seen, this so beautiful landscape will allow

I see below the mountains, a special lake of fine blond sand
And like in my last night visions, specific rocks and their traces inland

Pictures of distant places, looking for something I remind
Reading pages of thousand books, spending all of my time until I find

This introspection today, is so hard between dream and reality
My mind is working

Searching to discribe how was, the sky in all your odd vision
All day long or by full black night, please try to give me your deep perception

This introspection today, is so hard between dream and reality
My mind is aching

However I will join all, my spirits together
Shining blue sky with cotton clouds, what I can remember
It seems to me in clear white night, when I am in the groove
In draw day whatever the weather, can not see any move

When I look inside myself, I see more actually
Are the stars important to locate, so sure it is for me
Think the good place I must go, see the night stars ballet
Deep western America, in Death Valley

I prepare fastly my trip, buying the first good flight
To Las Vegas special airport, gaming city of night
Early in the blue morning, go to the western lands
In my head I see again the place, among the desert sands

5. Death Valley ride

Rising sun, the time has come for me to go
Death Valley Junction, the only road I know
Golden sky, above a land of mystery
Sands and mountains, until infinity

How many people died here? Writing some pages of american history
Memory still remains, echo in my head like a distant tragedy

Lonely ride, among the dust and deadly stone
I'm lost in nowhere, so far away from home
Drive a mile, Zabriskie Point daring the skies
Badwater sundance, fire in my eyes

Victims of the Devil, looking for some gold, fame and glory day
The voices of the past vanish in the air, carry all the tears away

Yellow plain, dunes and bushes all around
Unfriendly landscape, revealing no sound
Burning road, no sign of life to keep me strong
Trouble vision, fear has come along

What can I hope to find there, the key of life, the secret of my soul?
Deep inside the stones, the answers will come; I'll be free after the fall

Eyes open wide, I can't believe it's true, everything becomes real
Freely sensation, to loose control of my body
Invisible path, leads me to my destiny

6. Alone in this land

Standing on the flat desert floor, traces left behind
Heavy rocks on deadly ground, confusing my mind

Tell me why, makes them fly
Move away from day to day
Set me free, reveal that mystery
Help me to find a way to understand

Reveal to me

So here we are, not alone in this land, with the same impression
See moving rocks, can be for this new band
The way to share their fear and their night obsession

Be together is a real chance, but no illusion
It's not because we are some, we'll find the solution

Tell me why, makes me cry, taking every night away
Set me free, reveal that mystery
Help me to find a way to understand

Reveal to me

So here we are, not alone in this land, with the same impression
See moving rocks, can be for this new band
The way to share their fear and their night obsession

7. Waiting for an answer

Do you ever realise, the obsessious dream
Every night seems to be so real
So heavy to support, but I want to know
Remembering the way I feel
Waiting together for an answer to come…

No illusion of the future, moving about rocks to rocks
No way to cancel my troubles
In my head the same hard sound, why is it not so simple
Listening to hymn of angels?

So fragile girl she is, searching for something different
That she can learn and feel at home
She doesn't meet what she wants, and she is not sure of it
Solution should not be the form

We are all together, having a reason to come
See Racetrack Playa and find our self-way
So the rocks deliver, all their secrets and stories
In order to take care of us today

My heart is beating, we are approaching the feeling
To be close to be free
But rocks don't want so, deep silence settles down from them
Sure they do not agree

The legend is still here, everyone doesn't find
What they wanted to know about it and all
Do the rocks ever cry? Can they learn something from them?
From their nightmares, their bad feelings and soul

8. Unique and multiple

Death Valley is quiet, sun is setting, no cloud in the sky
Contrast of red, black and blond

Racetrack Playa is unique and so beautiful
Drama can be played with numerous artists
All wearing their clothes of dreams
If the weather is limpid, their hearts are beating
Moving between the rocks, their dance is supplying
Incantation, fluet melody, passion and harmony
Everyone is flying to its Eden

Warm and peace are between us
The night is coming, deep black

Nobody can see the landscape
But is it so important to watch these strange stones moving?
They understand the meaning of their trip
As Racetrack Playa, we are unique
Our evolution, the way we make choices in our life
Let obviously traces without being always captured
Our inward voices keep silent to people and sometimes to ourselves
We will yet experience it a day or another

We are multiple and even with our differences
We have enough together to understand each other

Emotion, Listening, Love…
