Standing alone by the edge of a river
He's traded his life for a glass full of tears
The bargain was quick for one's life is less dearer
When the sand's running out and the ending is near

    What an ending for an incredible album!... the very last lines move me to tears... 'Only his footprints all alone on the shore... and soon they're no more...' It fits the end of the story perfectly!
