🎧 Skysketch - I'm the Dust Lyrics

 🎧 Skysketch - I'm the Dust Lyrics

Blocks of steel and glass you trust

Silky skin, oh so clean, so pure

Now they’re no more, no walls, no plans

Out of their cracking skin I pour and pour

 

Lick my lips and bite my ears to taste the truth

In your mouth and on your tongue like burning soot

Floods of draught and streams of sand flows out of me

Fill your lungs until you fall upon your knees

 

Hail the ashes of past

Grains and grains of dreams collapsed

Piled up behind the blast

Oh, I’m the dust

 

Hail the ashes of past

Grains and grains of dreams collapsed

Piled up behind the blast

Cuz, I’m the dust

 

Beneath the shining face of crust I was trapped

Endless time in the darkest holes with no keys

Now they’re no more, a brief flash and all gone

No more cells to hold us in, we’re free, so free

 

But freedom betrays us

As we scatter around in burning rage

All our lives we wanted to be free

But now we’re desperate to get back to our cage

and fall upon our knees

Cause we don’t want to leave

The comfort of our beliefs

So the weight remains

The weight of the ashes of past

Grains and grains of dreams collapsed

Piled up behind the blast

 

Oh, I’m the dust

Hail the ashes of past

Grains and grains of dreams collapsed

Piled up behind the blast

Cuz, I’m the dust (x2)

 

Oh, I’m the dust

Hail the ashes of past

Grains and grains of dreams collapsed

Piled up behind the blast

I’m the dust (x2)
