I'm trapped in an hourglass, hands pressed on the walls
I've got sand filling to the neck
How much longer could I fall?
Every grain is another day
Everyday becomes another waste
I'll never find my way
I'm numb to the taste
Do you remember all the days when you still knew my face?
Oh God, what I've give to, to go back to that place
Here we stand
You're better off alone
Can't go back to the places, I'm looking back just like a ghost
How did you slip away?
So far, so fast
Can I break this hourglass?
Can I break this
I've got a sickness that I can't seem to shake, and I know you hold the cure
One choice remains
Every grain is another day
Every day becomes another waste
Maybe I'll find my way
I'm numb to the taste
Do you remember all the days when you still knew my face?
Oh God, what I've give to, to go back to that place
Here we stand
You're better off alone
Can't go back to the places, I'm looking back just like a ghost
So far, so fast
Can I break this hourglass?
Can I break this
Please help me, me empty the hourglass
Give me more time
And I swear I'll find a way back to the body, to the body that was mine
Please help me, me empty the hourglass
Give me more time
And I swear I'll find a way back to the body, to the body that was mine
