Shifting sands of time flow through the hourglass
Carrying with it memories of a distant past
There's nothing that can stop the endless motion
There's nothing that can ever be undone

Looking in the mirror
It's reflection stares into my soul
As I'm growing old

Shifting sands of time flow through the hourglass
Carrying away things I can forget at last
Deep underneath what accumulates
Innocence is drowning away
No more a child, I realize and see
That life itself is not what it seems

Reflection in the mirror
Burns a hole into my soul
As death is drawing closer

The moment of birth is the start of the journey to death
Isn't it ironic in the end?
To answer the question that burns inside your head
The price to pay is the ultimate fare
Do we only have one shot at this?
If that's the case, what have you missed?
When the time comes, will you be proud of what you've done?

Can we break through the mirror?
Grab the hourglass and turn it upside down
Get another chance at life
And make the sands shift again

Could it be that all there is is just this reality?
And that time itself is only a fantasy?
The people that are gone where are they now?
Could they still be around out there somehow?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Is there nothing more that we can trust
And if god is real, what's he waiting for?
When I break through the mirror
Will you recognize my face once more?
When the hourglass is upside down
And the sands shift again
