And how can we make it
Empty confidence in this empty chest
You've got to mend your wings
Cause no one believes a word you say
No one here believes you
Cause no one here believes

I feel
If I lose myself once again
I can never make it back to you
I will never make it

The messengry enforced
This empty mind left in this empty room
Your words, they linger
Their sleeping my life away
Sleeping my life

I feel
If I lose myself once again
I can never make it back to you
I will never make it

And all the windows have all turned to mirrors
Are you happy with the face that stares

Back at you
And all of these words, it's all falling
Back to me
And I don't think I'll make it
Cause I am just lost
I am just lost
In this hourglass

And if the sand takes me over
This won't mean a thing

    General CommentIt was so awesome listening to this the first time. I have 'Karakul Carpets VA' and 'Karakul Carpets (Live)' on my iPod. I was really disappointed when I first got the new album. Cause this is probably my favorite song by Greene Reveal. Then when I got to 'Hourglass' I was totally ecstatic.
