My hands are stained by this cursed soil
Shadows shade my eyes - I need a miracle
To find some pleasure in the toil
Empty the tank, find a heart alive and full

I'm struggling in vain
For a prize I can't attain
I need a race to win and faith to run again

The mirror says we're past our prime
Aspirations fade if we won't fan this fire
Baby we ain't got much time
Gonna grit my teeth, take hold of this live wire

Time to loosen up my grip
On empty dreams I longed for
The grave steals what change won't strip away
When this story's all wrapped up
Who's left to mold a meaning
From sentences left scrawled upon the page?
