Time moves on like the falling sand

Time moves on like the falling sand
And I fall helplessly at their demands
Embracing the curse of gentle sins
I pray they see the suffering within
A smile to give, and a lie to take
All of the words blur into fakes
Shouting and screaming down the halls
Love is silent to bitterness when it calls
And on deaf ears we cannot hear to cope
As on the silence we all choke
A family oh a family
Look at what we are
Please look at our family
And cut open the scar
Tear us to pieces if only for a new start
It is oh so tragic to have a hardened heart
Especially when you want only to love
Only to have it broken by those above
So a family oh a family
We are good as we are
Please see our good family
Through our own prison bars
