​The Opaque Hourglass

This song is by Lanfear and appears on the album The Code Inherited (2016).

Shake off the devil
Don't pay with your life
A last embrace and I'll leave the strife

I'm lookin' around me
And don't like what I see
There ain't nothing called in between

Sand runs through the opaque hourglass
The future is still untold
Prepare the inner dream to be unfold

Conjuring up images in mind
I've been waiting for so long
I've absorbed my life

You cannot squeeze the life out of me
Although nothing is as it should be
The transience of all things around us
Rushes through my fingers like grains of sand


It came without warning
I was chasing my dreams
When I tripped over reality

A shattering prospect
Too frail to cross the line
I recognized the sign o' the times

Wind sounds roar through the hourglass
Before the storm suddenly quells
Remembering another broken shell

I'll stand up and leave my fears behind
Bleeding deep inside of me
Make your dreams come true 'cause time flies

You cannot squeeze the life out of me
Although nothing is as it should be
The transience of all things around us
Rushes through my fingers like grains of sand


This moment won't last forever
It takes absence to value presence
It seems that my hourglass is shaken and I get another chance

You cannot squeeze the life out of me
Although nothing is as it should be
The transience of all things around us
Rushes through my fingers like grains of sand
