hide up in the dust with all of time
cradled in your hands, buried in your mind.
all by yourself in the days gone by;
those old golden suns give you light.

with a handful of dust
and a heartful of ash,
you've seen far too much in there
shuttered in your past.

hide your leery eyes and spurn the rest.
like a swallow that dives in the hunt in the twilight you search,
chasing what you know you can’t get:
the boulder that rolls, the sadness of home, the loss of someone great

with a handful of dust
and a heartful of ash,
you've seen far too much in there
shuttered in your past.
