I'm taken through the hourglass
I'm being tossed upon the sand
Am I alone
The words still linger in my head

Breathing in the salty air
There is a mark upon my hand
Is there a seat for me among the dreaming dead
Oh I wonder

I was sealed in a tomb of sadness
I was trapped in a cell of sleep
I was held by the hands of time
Now this time is mine to keep

I'm still alive
I'm far from the casket and cradle
I'm still alive
I've taken the fate out of fatal
I'm still alive

They tied me to the pendulum
They hung my heart across the sky
I found my soul eclipsed, my body crucified

I was caged in the age of the miracles
I was set in a hollow sky
I was kept under shadow's lock
Now I don't know how to die

I'm still alive
I'm far from the casket and cradle
I'm still alive
I've taken the fate out of fatal
I'm still alive

My star is rising now, as the ferryman appears
He bears an offering, a piece of silver for my fears
I couldn't cut the deal, mine is not his fate to buy
And I as fly my canvas, he ascends on high

Shattering the earth and the heavens
I feel his icy breath of fire consuming me
Shattering the earth and the heavens
The demon rises up, a bird of coal and flame
Shattering the earth and the heavens
I am surrounded by the wings of water now
Shattering the earth and the heavens
They've come to lift me out of here

I'm still alive
I'm far from the casket and cradle
I'm still alive
I've taken the fate out of fatal
I'm still alive
