    Lyrics

    Try to face up to the blinding sun
    Racing for the final word to come
    Facing up, it's hard to stay devout
    I can see the sand and it's running out
    And it's running out

    We quote each other only when we're wrong
    We tear out the threads and move along
    We can't seem to find common ground
    I can see the sand and it's running out

    It was only circumstances
    But it's the difference, it gets in the way
    No race is run in this direction
    You can't break even
    You can't even quit the game

    The current drags to the bottom
    A hemorrhage that moves us around
    It pulls and beckons in a strong direction
    High water forever bringing us down
    I can see the sand and it's running out
    And it's running out

    It was only circumstances
    But it's the difference, it's in the way
    No race is run in this direction
    You can't break even
    You can't even quit the game
