Derelict Daydream – Yesterday’s People

Derelict Daydream – Yesterday’s People

Sands of time ebb their way
But the question still remains
Bonds still break, separate
So denied
Distant smiles of yesteryear
Cast aside but always near
Flashback, the haunting of today
Can’t rewind

The eyes of Chronos
Witness every chime
Yesterdays people
Can’t cross the path of time

Earth and the seed from which we grow
Ashes spent from that we sow
Dust of history’s pages crumbled
To dust of all that still remains
All those yesterdays laid to rest

Dust to rust the embers glow
The parallel dimensions hold
Book of life the story’s old
Left behind
These walls that build around me
I can’t break them on my own
But when all is said and done
I don’t wanna die alone

The eyes of Chronos
Witness every chime
Yesterdays people
Can’t cross the path of time

Earth and the seed from which we grow
Ashes spent from that we sow
Dust of history’s pages crumbled
To dust of all that still remains
A denial

Can’t stop the clocks to reconnect
Can’t hide so live with no regret
Struggle to hold your last prayer
Or fight this reflection of a dead end stare

(interlude)

Earth and the seed from which we grow
Ashes spent from that we sow
Dust of history’s pages crumbled
To dust of all that still remains
Earth and the seed from which we grow
Ashes spent from that we sow
Dust of history’s pages crumbled
To dust of all that still remains
All those yesterdays laid to rest

Can’t stop the clocks to reconnect
Can’t hide so live with no regret
Struggle to hold your last prayer
Or fight this reflection of a dead end stare

Though time waits for no one
Your heroes never die
Though time waits for no one
Your heroes never die
Can’t hold back the tide
Still living in the memory
Forged in blood this tie
For this is not goodbye
