Tilting The Hourglass Lyrics - Alesana

Review The Song (9)



You take my breath away...

But I'll never again taste your lips
As fate keeps me locked away
I must close my eyes to see your face

Emptiness has darkened my eyes
As I hopelessly beg for my life to end
Tell me why
My iron eyes tell the tale
Heroes always pay in their blood...
I can be only this

I see the fear growing in their lost eyes
My purpose is so clear... I am the ax
I am the ax and this is why I must not fear the end
And when I'm gone will you forget me?
(Will you forget)
Pen wears its steady course across the page
sponsored links
(Forget) Resigned to it's designs to take the hive

Emptiness has darkened my eyes
As I hopelessly beg for my life to end
Tell me why

Emptiness has darkened my eyes
As I hopelessly beg for my life to end
Tell me why
(I wish I could make you see, I wish I could make you see through the pain
through the end, I wish I could make you see the greater purpose that I have to serve...
No one else will fight... No one else will fight... so I must)

My iron eyes tell the tale
Heroes always pay in their blood...
I can be only this

I am the ax
Fear has been lost to faith
The darkened night has come before the end
Of which we must prevail
Amidst the pitch of steel we shall arise
I will destroy all those who oppose me

My iron eyes tell the tale
Heroes always pay in their blood...
I can be only this
My iron eyes tell the tale
Heroes always pay in their blood...
I can be only this

I see the fear growing in there

This song is about Agamemnon, brother of the king of Sparta and husband to Clytemnestra. Agamemnon went to fight against Troy and understood that in order to survive the Greek fleet's delay of temultous winds, he must sacrifice his daughter to Artemis, the goddess of forest and wild animals. Upon sacrificing his daughter, Iphigenia, his wife took an enemy lover, Aegisthus during the ten year siege of Troy. At the end of the war, Agememnon returns home to a supposedly loving and faithful wife. Clytemnestra, however, never forgave her husband for the loss of their daughter and threw a large net over his body while her lover, Aegisthus, readied his ax for Agememnon.**** this is where, in the song, he states " I am the ax"- because he sees what he has done as heroic and essential to his part of the war, yet he knows he brought his death upon himself by sacrificing his daughter. A really great, emotionally powered song with vivid lyrics and the forffeiting of mental weariness. Beautiful.

emptiness has darkened my eyes
as I hopelessly beg for my life to end
...tell my why...
I wish I could make you see, I wish I could make you see through the pain
through the end, I wish I could make you see the greater purpose that
I have to serve...no one else will fight...no one else will fight...so I must
my iron eyes tell the tale
heroes always pay in their blood
I can be only this

i think this song is awsome!!!! And i think that this song is true because our country is like in a war right now and in one part in the lyric it speaks that someone has to fight and they must have to fight to serve the country so umm..... yeah
