500 Days-"Dust"
 
Verse:
 
Ghosts of a time not so very long ago,
when reason ruled, and had a thirst to know,
guided our steps, now those days are gone,
now all seems empty, so frightening and wrong
 
Pre-Chorus:
 
Jagged memories of the way it used to be,
cut me to the bone, ghosts of the past haunting me
 
Verse:
 
It's a wasteland of our own making,
piece-by piece, a little of our soul it's taking
The rattling chains of democracy past
remind us of something we might have seen the last
 
Repeat Pre-Chorus:
 
Chorus:
 
Dust, once a shining city on the hill
ground to nothing with the people's will
Dust, once upon a time, Land of the Free,
Now a prison for dreams that will never be
 
 
Verse:
 
Frustration and anger, a tidal wave of feeling,
got me off balance, with my senses reeling
through the ruins of our yesterday
Just don't know what to do, don't know what to say
 
Repeat Pre-Chorus:
 
Repeat Chorus:
 
END
