Every time I flip the hourglass, I receive perspective
I can add it up in piles of sand
Every time that I flip the hourglass, I receive perspective
I can add it up in piles of sand

How did I ever ignore such imperfections?
After the smoke cleared, we noticed that the governments gained
Empires and emperors have never felt shrapnel
Their relatives weren't casualties
After the cities are razed, they speak in abstracts about "acceptable losses"

Every time that I flip the hourglass, I receive perspective
I can add it up in piles of sand
Every time that I flip the hourglass, I receive perspective
I can add it up in piles of sand

If only I would have known, I would have tried to change the world
How it works
If only I would have known, I would have tried to change the world
How it works
If only I would have known, I would have tried to change the world
How it works
If only I would have known, I would have tried to change the world
How it works

Every time that I flip the hourglass, I receive perspective
I can add it up in piles of sand
In piles of sand
And this is nothing new
And this is nothing new
