lyrics

From sand and stone
level and true
I built my house
on shifting sands.
By my hands,
a realm on Earth
and from the date,
a giant palm.
A golden shield
for every man.
In time before,
we couldn't stand.
We're the first.

And my throne
is your throne.
And the rings
on my hand
are your gold.
And my sun
is your sun
to the end.
And my bones
are your bones.
From the grain
to the sand
to the stone.

The crushing wind.
The serpent's tooth.
Bring me in
the shifting sands.
From my hands,
it fell to the ground.
A rotten date
seen in the palm.
The golden shield,
it weighed us down.
A sunken tomb.
A phantom town.
We're the last.

And my throne
is your throne.
And the rings
on my hand
are your gold.
And my sun
is your sun
to the end.
And my bones
are your bones.
From the grain
to the sand
to the stone.
