Piers Faccini Performs

4:33

"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."
