"Dust Of Ages" as written by Mark O. Everett and Jim Jacobsen....
This is the day
That I give myself up

The dust of ages
Settles on your days
And so you shake your cloak off
And get on your way

Bloodshot and trembling
A new day has begun

The dust of ages
Settles on your days
And you blow it all away
And get on your way

The dust of ages
Settles on your days
But I'm not fuckin' around anymore
I'm on my way

    General CommentI think it's about being able to shake off the weariness of day-to-day life and just live without worries or anxiety.

    General CommentA song about new beginnings. But starting anew means you have to be willing to leave something old behind.

    General CommentI love the last two lines:

    "But I'm not fuckin' around anymore
    I'm on my way"
