When darkness falls and another world calls
I stand alone here in my cell
This new life tastes so bittersweet
An ironic twist in my private hell

Counting, counting the sands of time
Counting, counting the sands of time

These are my dreams and my voiceless cries
Cross the landscapes of my mind
Forgotten images another time
Another place for me to hide

Counting, counting the sands of time
Counting, counting the sands of time
Counting, counting the sands of time
Counting, counting the sands of time

The night's my servant leading me to light
To places far beyond reality
The first sunlight covers my veiled eyes
The shadows dance their morning dance
My enemy awakes again
Sisyphus slept next to me
Counting seconds - them becoming years
Sisyphus slept next to me

Counting, counting the sands of time
Counting, counting the sands of time
