The original idea for this song was created on a Rhodes by Bob Chomyn. Nic was stoked on the idea and used it as the root stem for composing Sandcastles. All raps by Paisteez. Guitar contributions by Marty Verhagen.


A day in a life
Hides more to the story
Boring portions in a hurry
Recorded time it's not enduring

Storing life on disks and slip surprise
Convinced of all the lies ridic
Comprising a giant gist

If it's honest this song is dog gone promise
always exists in the interim even after a mix
laugh at these seconds fluttering by like butterfly knives
what a wise guy to try something different in the primal

monster mess of a life
beautiful and sick
but really though,
what the fuck are you gonna do bout it
swallow your pride and hop up on a new ride
to drive you out of the thick,
shout at the moon and shoot a bullet

a mountain to mute full bullshit
the tools of the trade aren't equipped
to keep the slipstream of insanity at a far away length
so go be sparkin a spliff
to keep the target off your mind body soul and spirit

we tryin to inspire some artists from fallin
leave all this behind
we create and let go
initiate a new flow
and wait for the rest to catch up
to our ghost
that drifts and floats, fading away like it was smoke

trailing my troops
that's just like waiting for proof
or hating on truth
just being angered in youth
we celebrate and we're kooks
and entertaining a few before they bury the stook
and forget that we had juice ah

Every morning I wake up and build myself a castle out of sand
and it fades away, it fades away.
Every morning it's the damn same thing building castles out of sand
and they fade away, and they fade away

Creatin keep making infiltrating the ma**********************
No one's takin the time for proper training in rhyme
however impatient the mind don't be forsakin the spine
on some dolla dolla holla botha not go talk a lot and walk on the spot

Johnny be rock
your tongue is caught in a lock
with combination forgot
you see your face on the clock
just time wasting non-stop
chasing the dream
erasing the beat until it's
something worth to keep

no frontin just sleep and awake more complete
able to finish the streak that you've been winning on repeat
daily til you're satisfied for a split second in life
measure the nice and get with the right
we enter at night

like rhyme's alive and death in words
simpler sentences fly as birds
try and serve
just find and search
just bind some earth
to each his own
eat the stones to beat the poem and reach the zone

the old and known
old and grown
the ogre's throne
the poses clone
the stone is tone
with folding arms and crossing legs
thoughts and webs and cracking glass
none shall pass

and run from chance
the dumb will dance
have fun at last
brilliant stance
like guns go fast
it's once to ***************
it's drunks on splash
cunts and ass
just front on wax
we love won't last
we love won't last

Every morning I wake up and build myself a castle out of sand
and it fades away, it fades away.
Every morning it's the damn same thing building castles out of sand
and they fade away, and they fade away
