Thrust your hand into my chest and pull out a fistful of sand
Cast it down upon the ground and watch as it blows away
The world keeps spinning ever-on and dark hair turns to gray
The ticking clock cannot be stopped, and so goes another day

[PRE-CHORUS] Falling down, spirit broken
Hollowed out, never to return

Dig your hand into my eyes and pull out a fistful of sand
I only see betrayal now, so I'm better blind
It didn't have to be this way, but I can't reclaim my yesterdays
And so I'll let the string play out as I lie crushed by my self-doubt

[CHORUS] Words mean nothing, promises were lies
and my life's hourglass empties out before my eyes

One life, one chance
A single invitation to the dance
Choose wise, choose well
Good intentions pave the road to hell
