O Sands of Time, thou keeper of
God's order,

Thou art dreaded by wasters, the elder doth cherish memories granted by thee

Known to be stolen, seen to be interwoven,
past, present, future
yet harnessed by none

Thou cannot be captured, tamed or dismissed,
Waiting for none, thy gallop persists

Men fall by thy side, the Pale horse Rider proclaims
it is time, it is over, for the Judge calls their names

That clock is an illusion,
For thou doest speed and slow, Inexplicable wonder
how canst one know?

Thy Sands said to be endless, those Sands of time
But that day is coming,
The end of Time...
