Lyrics

"Dust"
©2010 Capers Simmons (ASCAP)

VERSE I
Rise up from the pillows where you've laid abed.
Innocents sleep like the criminal dead
Put down in their prime with a price on their heads.
Amen.
Line up for the roller-coast amusement ride:
Fun-house mirrors on the water slide.
Watch your soul grow old while your life slips by;
Say when.

PRECHORUS I
Just a short, steep drop, then it's over, they say.
You can get another ticket, but you'll have to pay

CHORUS I
Dust you are, dust you were,
And to dust you'll return.
What you've earned you receive.
Dust can teach, dust can learn,
Dust can breathe, dust can burn,
And it's your turn, I believe.
Open wide the coffin, child, and trust in me.
Lay down here in this coffin, dear, and go to sleep.

VERSE II
Get down from the pillar where you placed yourself
Like a first-prize ribbon on a trophy shelf.
Come down like a quarter in a wishing well,
Come true.

Stick around for the funerary wake tonight,
Moonshine flickering the candlelights,
Roamin' like a Catholic delivering rites
To choose.

PRECHORUS
It's sad, sad story, but I swear that it's true.
Got the guts and glory, now you must pay your dues.

~ CHORUS I ~ SOLO ~

BRIDGE
It's a long, long journey, so sleep on through
They will wake us when we make it,
Not a moment too soon

~ CHORUS I ~

CHORUS III
Dust we're born, dust we die,
And from dust we shall rise,
Open eyes underground.
Glass to sand, steel to rust
Ash to ash, dust to dust
Sleep for just another hour
Then open wide your coffin, child, and come on out.
Open up the coffin, son, and stand your ground.
