Sand (Demians)

Deaf, numb and run-down Fastened-seatbelt homeward-bound Landing checks and gear down A ten-hour flight hits the ground And all that I once knew is gone Eyes open wide, Dawning on wasted mourning hours An aerial slide And a led screen counting down the miles Here comes the time I... Swirl on the downside world Gear up to take off If anything is turning you off Next time, good son Don't look down while you leave the ground Head up, and... Swirl the downside world Now hours pass like centuries And empty minutes feel like years The engine rumbling in my ears Won't make the memories disappear For family and friends, for passengers A postcard's worth an open letter We never met, we never will They're scared and all I need's a thrill All this is now so far away And yet it feels like yesterday When she was drawing lines in the sand That I was holding in my hand Holding in my hand Hold it in your hand All this is now so far away And yet it feels like yesterday Did it have to end that way When there was so much left to say? For family, friends, for passengers The show is over When we are down Where are we crashing down?... You know when hours feel like years This cold and sleepless night aside An engine's rumbling in my ears A led screen's counting down the miles For family, friends, for passengers The show is over May it all swirl Down on the outside world You know when hours feel like years From the pain and shivers that subside Like this cancer corroding our dreams These needles emptying down the vials For family, friends, for passengers A postcard's worth an open letter We'll meet again, I'm sure we will You're scared and all I need's a thrill You know when hours feel like years In cold and sleepless nights you shine In the engine rumbling in my ears On led screens counting down the miles For family friends, for passengers The show is over May it all swirl Down on the outside world I'm seeing the earth from a plane Where precious space and time sustain And you are drawing lines in the sand I keep holding in my hand No family, friend, no passenger The show is over When we are down Where are we crashing down...? And I remember hours feel like years Hoping this pain and shivers would subside Like this cancer corroded our dreams These needles emptied down the vials No family, friends, nor passengers The show is over And now we all swirl Down on the outside world May it all swirl Down on the outside world Swirl... I'm seeing the earth from a plane Where precious space and time sustain We'll meet again, I'm sure we will You're scared and I just got my thrill Spinning around in my head Every word that you said And everything we have been That we were holding in our hands Holding in our hands Deaf, numb and run-down Fastened-seatbelt, homeward-bound Landing checks and gear down A ten-hour flight hits the ground And all that I once knew is gone... All that I once knew is gone
