She assured me it would be quick and painless
But the ticking of time is an echo, oh so long
I asked her where we go when we die
She just smiled and kissed my cheek
"To a place where no one knows..."
This pulse in my hand, it's a life, it's a death
She pulls me swiftly by my hand
I see the crowded stairs of the church in a blur
Destined to go somewhere beyond this
It's wearing off as we slide through the door
She said "you always left me wanting more..."
I am just sand in the glass, and I don't fear this departure
Take me into your arms when I'm dead and gone
Hold me close to your heart when I'm dead and gone
Plant me deep in the ground when I'm dead and gone
Dead and gone
