The Sands Of Time

take a look at the whole
the stars above
there are more than the
grains of salt
on every beach
you ever swum on
every ice cream
you have ever eaten
they are greater than
every day you have ever lived
every way you have ever did
make sure you remember this

there are a billion million trillion of it all
its all that you can be sure of
take another look
before you stand and shake
in the cold night
above the stars are so bright
but do they matter?
But do they matter?

have you ever been sure
that you knew more than you could ignore
have you ever listened to the words
and found they contradicted the way you thought
have you ever had a feel
that you could melt the snow
and take it all for granted beyond
beyond the forsaken shaw

on raindrops
in shadows
by sunlight
ye wind
lo feel
li deel
me take

have you ever been sure
that you knew more than you could ignore
have you ever listened to the words
and found they contradicted the way you thought
have you ever had a feel
that you could melt the snow
and take it all for granted beyond
beyond the forsaken shaw

there are a billion million trillion of it all
its all that you can be sure of
take another look
before you stand and shake
in the cold night
above the stars are so bright
but do they matter?
But do they matter?

take a look at the whole
the stars above
there are more than the
grains of salt
on every beach
you ever swum on
every ice cream
you have ever eaten
they are greater than
every day you have ever lived
every way you have ever did
make sure you remember this

make sure you remember this
for it is beyond what you hoped inside
I shoot the moon
I take the spoon
the cat and the fiddle talk more than hey diddle diddle
its cute but its annoying
that you don’t know what it is
but inside it is
beyond the feeling of the sand
deep in the ground
standing eternal beyond all sound
every grain represents a hart
every grain represents a flight

a day
a tell
a song
a fell
a star
all that is
is all represented in the sand
in the sands
in the sands
the sands of time
