"Dust in the Wind" as written by and Kerry A / Livgren....
I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Oh, ho, ho

Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
The wind

    General Comment"dust in the wind" COULD be kind of like we are being carried along to our destiny by something great and powerful?
    the other way of seeing it is that we are just small particles of dust mixed into the vast air? "Just a drop of water in an endless sea." and it's just telling us not to take things too seriously, and not to take ourselves too seriously?
    "All we are is dust in the wind.
    Dust in the wind.
    Everything is dust in the wind."
    I DUNNO IT'S JUST AN IDEA.... well... many ideas.. actually.

    General CommentIt's originally a song by Kansas

    This song always reminds me of the poem "Ozymandias" by Shelley - the eternally transient nature of man and life itself.
