Tilting the hourglass (Letra/Lyrics)

you take my breathe away...
but I´ll never taste your lips
as fate keeps me locked away
I must close my eyes to see your face

emptiness has darkened my eyes
as I hopelessly bed for my life to end
...tell me why...
my iron eyes tell the tale
heroes always pay in their blood
I can be only this

I see the fear growing in their lost eyes
my purpose is so clear... I am the ax
I am the ax and this is why I must not fear the end
and when I´m gone will you forget me?
pen wears its steady course across the page
resigned to it´s designs to take the hive

emptiness has darkened my eyes
as I hopelessly bed for my life to end
...tell me why...
I wish I could make you see, I wish I could make you see through the pain
through the end, I wish I could make you see the greater purpose that I have to serve...
no one else will fight... no-one else will fight... so I must
my iron eyes tell the tale
heroes always pay in their blood
I can be only this

I see the fear growing in there...
