"The Hourglass" lyrics - SOLITUDE AETURNUS

"The Hourglass"

Moments last to our closing eyes
No one gets out alive
The ring of truth bears no weight
Of prophesy none too late
The glassy eye of measured time
A witness to our mortal lies
On we stride our love behind
Too blind to see the other side

The hourglass
Unchain the sands of time
Fly on...
Return our chance for life
Pouring sand... Drowning souls
Rising... Falling... Beyond control
Tears of hope now lost to me
Cast upon the ancient sea
Forever trapped behind the glass
Tomorrow now becomes the past
