Years turn to days of past
The hourglass is running fast
Life's no more than memories
Past the time away, Past the time away

So I sit here waiting
For the end to come
No one knows the answers
Nothing left to dream of
Drowned by the night

Scream to the wind
But none hear my call
Words lost to the breeze
Upon the ground they fall
Days are short
The nights are long
Sometimes the dark
Burns more than the sun

The memories are distant
The memories are black

Sitting by a window
Piercing into the night
Drained of all that I bleed
Cast this from my sight
The earth will still be spinning
The day that I fall
See what the years have done
Shattered by it all
So I sit here waiting
For the end to come
No one knows the answers
Nothing left to dream of
