O death in thee I have found
& Found in thee alone
The silent bane of emptiness
This sorrow 'till now unknown.

In the name of God, Allah, Odin
And devils one and all,
I call upon their faceless forms
To resurrect my soul.

In death I face my deepest fear
Alone I waste away,
No God will come this dying day
To take me from my grave.

To disappear without a trace
Like ashes in the rain,
All I am and ever was
Is 80 grains of sand

All I am and ever was
Is 80 grains of sand
All I am and ever was
Is 80 grains of sand.

A life is but one second of forever
& Death an endless path that leads to the lamenting edge
At the well of sorrow.
Tears flow like an eternal rain that dwell in a place
Where no sun can reach.
& Here 80 grains of sand rests amongst a desert
