about

Castles is a rumination on the ebbs and flows of loss and pleasure. I fixate on the image of a sand castle surrendering to the tide; we are both sand castles and everything we do in life is like a sand castle. Sand castles are impermanent. Everything changes; nothing is forever, immutable. Despite the change and loss, both freeing and painful, we keep building.

lyrics

I try and I try to keep us the same
The only thing I know is change is change

There's nothing that I want to say
Just want to flow in different ways
Want to open all of my shades
And strip off my shame

We keep on building
While we shed all of the skin once had
The tide glissandos
To embrace all of our castles in the sand

Castles, castles, our castles in the sand...

You try and you try to ignore the pain
The years keep passing by
It's time for change for change

I'll spend just one more night with you
The fire's out but we'll make do
We'll paint our nails a shade of blue
And slip into something new

We keep on building
While we shed all of the skin once had
The tide glissandos
To embrace all of our castles in the sand

Castles, castles, we're castles in the sand...

Yes we keep building
Yes we keep building
Something new...
