Hourglass Lyrics - Lamb Of God

Review The Song (35)



Privileged, a chosen few
Blessed with our time in hell
Witness a divine vision, the day we all fell still.
Rapture of the dying age, a shattered hourglass
Wrath of the warring gods and soon this too shall pass.

It's only getting worse, not worth a moment's regret
Each dawn another curse, every breath a twisting blade
What will be left behind in the ashes of the wake?
An ill wind blows this way, the edge of the envelope burns
Forbearance and my vengeance, payment for your intent
Fear and death in the wings, in thrall of those fallen from grace
Petty is as petty does, witness the mass disgrace.

(Fear and death in the wings, in thrall of those fallen from grace
Petty is as petty does, witness the mass disgrace.)
God forbid you read the signs.
Watch for meaning between the lines
sponsored links
Gehenna has now arrived, no hindsight for the blind.
Your trust has been misplaced, believed the lies told to your face
Became another casualty and now it's too late.

You finally made it home,
Draped in the flag that you fell for.
And so it goes
The ashes of the wake.
It's only getting worse...(x5)

I feel bad for people who dislike any kind of music. | Reviewer: Kadavyr | 2/7/13

Music is defined as a composition of notes intended to create a melody. It' s a sick and stupid idea to divide musical interests by genre, or even band. I study and play all kinds of music, and the thing I find most beautiful in music is the story behind the song itself.
This song in particular is Willie Adler's most genious creation. The 'vomit riff' is the most technical riff I've ever heard play, not to mention learning the riff on any instrument can up your skill in that in a pinch. Willie Adler was figuring the melody and he was too sick to play properly, but when he managed, he threw up. I feel that an accomplishment like that is more beautiful than any words, ideas, or thoughts can describe, and anyone who thinks that Willie Adler or Lamb Of God are a horrible band should be put to eternal shame.

Awesome Band !! | Reviewer: Adam | 5/17/12

Being a guitar player and drummer, I can play Lamb of God's songs on both drums and guitar and I can tell you that this band is one of the most technical bands I've played. The rythm is complexe and the melody is well written.

Freakin' Haters! | Reviewer: Fuckyaall | 4/20/12

Fuck all you haters! Go to hell! Please! This is my favorite band of all time. It doesn't anything to do with me just adopting a negative attitude. So just stfu and listen to the fucking music! Oh god i cant believe it. Haters should just go burn in hell!!!!

(Crap band good name | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/20/11

This band appeals to teenagers with no real musical background....they;re more into it for the pseudo attitude and style of the group and of the metal movement in general...people who cant face life and adopt a negative persona to deal with it...every one if these fans will move on to something else soon...there's nothing lasting or classic about this garbage...
Lamb of God...GREAT name....sadly a fuck all band)

this guy must be a real loser lookin up lyrics for a band he dont like. im guessin he's some christian rock U2 lover or something, lol. if you dont like the band dont talk shit, dont go online posting hate comments. Lamb of God are one of the best technical bands out there, no argument. there's a reason they have so many fans.

"

First of all, you speak of musical background, of which you clearly have none. The technical elements displayed in said song alone are impressive, to say the least.

As far as "not accepting life, and adopting a negative persona" goes, the content dealt with in the song "Hourglass", and futhermore, the album "Ashes of the Wake", are serious issues in the current time. Open your eyes, clearly you are the one who is not accpeting life.

What the fuck do you know about metal? In your case, ignorance truly is bliss.

Wake up.

Adler is beast on drums | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/7/11

What i like 'bout Chris is that he's not jealous of others. He often says'' i'm not the best n i knw it...there r so many drummers who can turn circles around me...i evn get nervous while performin live....'' but i knw...u knw...all knw that he z a beast on drums...he z very calm n composed drummer...n no one can deny it...L.O.G. Rules/,,/

Meaning of the song | Reviewer: Andres | 12/21/10

I thing that the meaning of the song is about how the people who are in the power sent the low class to the war so they can be more rich, and they put it all like you're doing it for your country but they're only tricking you, and when the one who has been fooled knows what's happening its know too late

Re: Best drummer | Reviewer: Broj | 11/28/10

Chris Adler is a badass drummer, but I don't really like his over use of hemiola. If you want a few drummers that are better then Chris, then I'd look up Mike Portnoy (Ex-Dream Theater), Tomas Haake (Meshuggah (Dude fucking poly-rhythms within himself)) and Gene Hoglan (Fear Factory)

Re: Best Drummer? | Reviewer: Matt | 3/8/10

i can think of one modern drummer that surpasses Chris Alder. his name would be Danny Carey (TOOL). Sorry to all the SLipKnoT fans out there, but alder does have joey beat. joey has speed but his rythems arent that complex. as a drummer for only a year i am proud that i can say that i can play most of joeys stuff (or at least everything off of Volume 3 and AHIG) and i quite a bit of trouble with alters stuff.

The best | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/15/10

A really unique and a different band, easily the best going to date. This song is so intelligently written and perfored, everything is perfect. Theyv'e really taken on a sound which makes them different to anything iv ever heard before. PS to jordan reid, am going to that gig too :D
