Acron – Backward Flowing Time lyrics

Lost in the land of nowhere
Floating in a misty cloud of wonder
The quest has just began
Through this dreamland I will travel
Knowing just what I don't need to be
I'll start the search for the unknown
But all this seems so strange to me
Like a race against a backward flowing time

Timeless clocks unticking
I hear my lost voice calling from where I've never been
Time - look the sand as it falls up
Killing future, breeding past, annihilating memory

So here I wander, I'm looking for the path
Lost between signs of time and ghosts of a truth supposed to be
So here I wander, I'll keep my eyes closed to foresee
Where this dream will take me, when I will be free to live again
Passing through the portals of mortal life

Deep inside unreality
Still roaming through this land of nowhere
Echoes of a future that existed in the past
Instantaneous feelings strike me
I hear voices from unborn existences
And see shadows of what shall be
Suspended in a backward flowing time

A dream from which you can't awake
A life from which you aren't able to escape
No means to comprehend
The ultimate collapse of universe
A secret has still to be unveiled
The mistery of the sacred harmony
Which lies beneath the twisting
Of this backward flowing time
