HOURGLASS TOWN

We rest in the night
I can only see half of your face
And that’s half of your whole
Half of your glow
Only half of what we know
About the darkest side of the moon
The darkest side of the moon
And the darkest side of you, too

Can you be guided ‘thout the way of the moonlight
Be careful not to shatter to the ground
‘Cause this is Hourglass Town, our glass town

Falling up and down
Through the grains of an hourglass town
Following the sand
Twist through with the notes of the band

Give it all up, fill the glass with words from the cup
Break it on out, slide on through just to swim without

Can you swim without the way of the pavement
Be careful not to shatter to the ground
‘Cause this is Hourglass Town, our glass town

The only place I see you is in my head
Beside my mind, everywhere else you’ve left
I can never hear the things you’ve said
Unless I place this pillow underneath my head

‘Cause my pillow doesn’t play without the head of a dreamer
Or at least that’s how you would like it to seem
But then I close my eyes and drift off into my mind
Like I do every time before you come in to ruin my dreams

You shatter my sleep, you shatter my dreams
You shatter the hourglass holding the sandman and me
We can’t be guided ‘thout the moonlight
We can’t swim without the pavement
We’ve fallen and shattered to the ground
In Hourglass Town, our glass town
