about

Based on the Murakami short story "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman".

lyrics

Uphill
The shadows
Are starting to drill
As if they were arrows.

A thousand flies have spread the pollen
Of the Blind Willow, that infects the fallen.

A man is trying to rescue – A young girl.
But he is so terrified – <<Is she still alive?>>
Flies are inside her ears – On a curl.
All the pollen deposited – To procreate.

A tragedy known, carved on her bones.

The flies could be
Eating her entrails.
He must gain speed
To save her intestines

So close to the place
Where she lies,
He gathers courage
For her to flourish.

Blind Willow//Sleeping Woman.
Our hero//Is just a human.

He is
In front of her.

He is
Watching her face.
But

She is

Dead, eaten and partially devoured.
