Sound Tracks | Piers Faccini Performs "Two Grains of Sand" | PBS

Duration: 04:33 (Full Program)
Program: Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders (Pilot)
Broadcast Date: Nov. 2, 2011

"Two Grains of Sand" is the title track from Piers Faccini's previous album released in 2009. As you'll see in this acoustic guitar, solo performance, it's a sad, intimate, philosophical song with an oblique story of jealousy and violence. There's "a murder buried under autumn leaves" and a plaintive cry: "How can we turn to violence and burn/Forget all we've learned/ to darkness return."
