The Théodore Life

We're so bored all the time (x4)
 
So at night when I'm asleep
I go with Théodore
Outside, outside, outside, outside
Walking in the desert
Walking between the rocks
Walking for entire days
Walking in the desert
Sleeping outside
Lying on the golden sand
Satellites and meteors
Sleeping outside
You need the bare minimum
A bible, a human's heart
A little tin cup
You need the bare minimum
So far from nature, here
The heart hardens
We're so far from air
We're so far from wind
So far from the vast desert
So far from the ocean
 
So at night when I'm asleep
I go with Théodore
Outside, outside, outside, outside
Walking in the desert
So far from nature, here
The heart hardens
 
Treasure hunter
Looking for twigs and phosphorus
For human love and effort
Treasure hunter
You need the bare minimum
A bible, a human's heart
A little tin cup
 
We're so bored all the time (x4)
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

Théodore Monod (1902-2000) was a French naturalist, humanist scholar, and explorer. His field of expertise was deserts, and he surveyed the Sahara desert for more than sixty years in search of meteorites, but he never found the one he was looking for. This song is a tribute to him.
