lyrics

Like many before me I ran and I ran and I ran
Trying to find any reason to be a worthy man
Like many before me I thought I could sail to the moon
But I fell in the valley below so dazed and confused

It's sinking sand
My thirst for glory destroys the man
Like all men before me
I sank the surface below

Like many before me I chased every flash of wind
But the rush of the chase always left me so weary within
The promise of inner sunshine was my compass
But the promises turned to winter like the solstice

It's sinking sand
My thirst for glory destroys the man
Like all men before me
I sank the surface below

I wandered through graveyards of pleasures ran dry
Where once overflowing have left me to die
Now all of my heroes and all of my friends
Have abandoned their posts and have left me for dead

What have I gained at the end of it all
When my kingdom will rust and my empire falls
When weakness sets in, will I bow, will I sing
Or will I curse God and then die in my sin

Like many before me my sword cut me down at the knees
But the God I had hated extended His mercy to me

It's sinking sand
My thirst for glory destroys the man
Like all men before me
I sank the surface below
