Track Name: Shadows & Dust
My features have begun to change
My body's become so strange
It's falling apart
And the only thing left is my heart, and it's turned to
Feathers and ash and sand and stone
And I don't think I'm ever gonna get back home
When the big clock ticks like a cheap kick drum
Counting off the minutes till my race is run
My spring winds down and sputters on out
I'm never gonna know what it's all about
Y'all pray that angel's light comes down
But there ain't no light and there ain't no sound
Just a big black hole where I used to be
And I wonder if they'll remember me
I'm nothing in the face of history
We're nothing in the face of history

Just shadows and dust

I might've been a priest or a prophet
But I don't believe in a Promised Land
I don't see God in heaven or earth
I don't need his book to understand
Why the world is tilted to one side
Or how the camel got his hump
If God made men in his image
Why are so many of 'em so goddamn dumb?
If you wanna see man as he's meant to be
Just head on down to the hanging tree
And watch them faces in the crowd
When his neck goes snap, they laugh out loud
When they drag him down, they all do the wave
If the Rapture came, nobody'd get saved
Nobody's rising up from them graves
Nobody's rising up from them graves

Just shadows and dust

Heave, ho, let him go!
Where he falls ain't nobody knows!
Heave, ho, let him free!
Long as he don't bother me!
Heave, ho, let him fly!
All God's children got to die!
Heave, ho, let him rust!
All God's children...

Just shadows and dust
