Last week I was trying to figure out how to play Bob Marley’s Redemption song, when this riff came to me. I worked on it for some days, filling in the blanks quite fast. Thanks to @progrockdan for comments on an earlier version.
Dedicated to the librarians past present and future.
Spy in the library
Expecting to be instructed
as soon as I cover my tracks
I didn’t do it for the money
only aimed for balance and checks
As this rain keeps on falling,
It feels like the sun won’t come back,
through this window of opportunity:
The light seeps through the crack.
Tonight I am the spy
In the library.
I’ll keep watching
from the hollow tree.
You know where I am coming from
and also where I am going to,
back to the holo deck, in the harbour town,
I’ll be waiting on you.
